I'm Really Not the Demon God's Lackey Chapter 20: S-Rank Zone

Selected past wielders of the demon sword were the strongest, most outstanding and practically flawless amongst the ten Great Radiant knights.

As the current wielder of the demon sword, Joseph had once been a dazzling entity just like the sun. But like a diamond, he was brittle beneath his excessive toughness.

During the battle with Wilde, he lost his right arm, as well as the glowing aura around him.

Even if he had continued to have supporters as always, the Indomitable Sacred Flame had already shown flaws that wouldn't be forgotten.

Countless doubts and criticism flocked in from unseen places. Even if nobody dared say it outright and many others reckoned Wilde was already dead, Joseph's self-doubt was starting to overwhelm him.

In the end, Joseph chose to retire. Taking up a semi-retirement role as a section chief in the intelligence branch, Joseph became depressed, irascible and sloppy.

Perhaps, his burning desire to apprehend Wilde was a result of wanting to prove himself once again.

He knew how certain people would view him.The first to let himself go before the demon sword's corruption took root and hence become the demon sword wielder that lived the longest.

"Perhaps he is thinking of letting himself degenerate when the demon sword isn't paying attention. This way, the demon sword wouldn't be able to corrupt him!" someone had said this back then.

Joseph felt that he had really fallen from grace and at that time, he was really itching to blow up that person's head with a punch.

Oh Sacred Light above, please forgive me.

He had nearly acted on it and this was some blasphemous way of thinking!

But now, perhaps he was more fortunate than other wielders of the demon sword because as the halo around him disappeared and as he drifted aimlessly, it actually lessened the cracks in his spirit which resulted in the demon sword's corruption slowing down.

Therefore, in a certain sense, what this bookstore owner said was actually right. Moreover, Joseph was even more fortunate, because he might have just found... the demon sword's successor.

When the bookstore owner had said, "entrust it to me", Joseph had to admit that he was certainly tempted.

The demon sword, Candela wasn't necessarily a possession of Secret Rite Tower but they utilized it despite its curse because it possessed great power. Secret Rite Tower handled this demonic weapon by letting the strongest knight keep it in check and use its power to go up against other evil forces.
