Beautiful and cruel story of an assassin and his student growing up
Assassin’s Pride takes place in Flanders, a city-state in a world where the sun and moon do not exist.
There is no natural light, and outside of Flanders, there is a dark realm called the “Night World.
The protagonist is a 17-year-old assassin who once drifted to Flanders from the Night World and now belongs to the Midnight Cavalry.
There he receives a new assignment: …… to tutor a girl named Merida-Angel.
Of course, this is a fake to hide his true mission.
His original job was to determine whether Merida, the daughter of the Knight-Duke of Angell, was really a daughter of the Angell family.
In this world, there is a concept called “mana,” and those who possess mana can use a variety of different abilities.
Those who possess mana are given the privilege of nobility, but they are also destined to fight against foreign enemies of humanity, such as lancanthropes.
Since the Angel family is also a noble family, Merida, who supposedly carries their blood, should have mana, but her mana is zero.
Her overall evaluation at the training school is also the lowest, so people around her call her an “incompetent genius.
The young man goes by the alias “Kufa Vampir” and teaches her as Merida’s tutor, and spends his days trying to determine if she has the talent to be a noblewoman.
If he does not, he will assassinate Merida, assuming that she is not his biological child but the result of his late mother’s infidelity.
This is the mission that Kufa is assigned.
As an assassin, it is not a difficult task for him.
However, when he becomes emotionally involved with Merida, who is despised as a child of injustice, and who is also despised at school because of her lack of ability, he becomes strongly opposed to taking her life, and he vows to raise Merida to be a great mana powerhouse with his own hands, and at the same time, to protect her from the hands of evil.
Merida also becomes more positive after meeting Kufa, and gains allies such as her cousin Elise Angell (Elly), who originally adored her, and Rosetti Prickett (Rose), Elly’s tutor.
This is the story of the twisted and straightforward life of an assassin teacher and an incompetent genius.
