What is a villain? How can we define this word?
When I was young, I watched a movie where the protagonist was a pirate.
At that age, it was important to distinguish between good people and bad people, so after watching TV for a while, I became confused and asked my mother.
“Mom, who’s the bad guy over there?”
“They’re all the same.”
My eyes widened at those words and I stared blankly at the TV.
At that time when I believed that good and evil was already clear, I was shocked by my mother’s answer. However, when I looked closely, each person pursued their own interests.
The main character was only receiving support from viewers because of the position designated as the protagonist.
From then on, the villain to me was no longer a ‘bad guy’, but a ‘force that opposes the main character’.
That’s how I defined the villain.
Dang dang dang!
[T/l: This noise is coming from the tv.]
Therefore, the villain here is also the same.
Raymond Russlo, the leader of the forces opposing the main character, appears as the villain in this web novel [I tamed the Mad Emperor]. And he’s my favorite.
I was not the only one who loved Archduke Russlo.
Although he was a villain, he was an attractive character. He is a cold-handed but warm-hearted man who knows how to cherish and take care of his people even though he devoted his life to taking revenge for his parents.
Especially his beautiful appearance , it was literally the end.
[ T/l: basically out of this world 😼😊]
His black hair, it was a mysterious and dangerous black color as if it had sucked everything in, His deep and brilliant eyes, as if the whole blue sea had moved inside those eyes.
On top of that, with his height of 185 cm and wide shoulders like the Pacific Ocean, he is the dignified commander, who commands the soldiers.
Standing at the edge of the cliff looking at the battlefield, the scene itself was like a scene in a movie.
His appearance was deadly enough to compete with his relative and male protagonist, the Emperor.
Archduke Russlo was actually popular with readers, so he was also included in the illustration, and the number of views and comments on that episode was explosive. The author of the novel even posted a separate announcement saying thank you for your support.
Archduke was the one who carried that unpopular novel.
Therefore, several illustrations have been posted since then, not to mention that my room has been filled with them. These days, even web novels make short promotional videos called book trailers. and I’m not gonna lie, but I have probably watched them 300 times.
My happy life as a fan became a reality through a sudden accident that happened one day.
The car, unaware of the change in traffic signal, drove through and crashed into the back seat of the taxi I was riding on the way home. It was an instant death since it had hit me directly.
The moment I recognized the headlights of the car shining towards me, my head became blank as if the lights had turned off, and Then I became in the web novel [I tamed the mad emperor].
I opened my eyes with a stuffy feeling of breathing. However, when I opened my eyes, all I could see was the same darkness whether I opened my eyes or closed it.
It looks like something is on my face?
I tried to lift my hand out,but my wrists were tied with something. In one word, I was stuck. There was only one situation that came to mind.
Did I got kidnapped??!
To grasp the situation, I focused on my senses. First, I was lying on top of something soft. Judging from the sensation of bouncing up and down my buttocks, I think it was probably the bed.
It wasn’t easy to get up with my wrists tied, but I struggled like a shrimp again and again and raised my upper body. In the process,I noticed two things: that the bed was very wide and that the texture of the blanket was as soft as silk.
Where am I? Why did they caught me?
But my head hurts, I couldn’t think of anything.
Then I heard footsteps from far away and felt them slowly approaching me. Soon the door opened and someone came into the room.
It wasn’t a loud sound, but I felt goosebumps running down my spine.
My heart started pounding as I was nervous that someone had come in that apparently kidnapped me.
“Looks like you’re awake.”
Only one person had entered the room.
Judging from his voice, he sounded like a man, but his voice was so low and soft that I thought it would be nice to hear even in the middle of this situation. The steady tone, neither aggressive nor sharp, somehow reassured me.
Thanks to that, I was able to have the courage to try talking to this person.
my entire face was covered with a mask, but my mouth was not covered separately, so I decided to talk to him.
“Where am I?”
The feeling of fear was directly expressed in my voice. However, there was no reply, just a smirk of laughter.
Are you not going to give me any information about this place? If so, I will need to ask differently.
“Why did you bring me here?”
Only after asking the second question, the man moved his lips.
“Don’t you already know why?”
No, I have no idea.
However, only an inconclusive reply came back. You suddenly brought me, who was living an ordinary life, and then said you know why. The man uttered a lot of unknown words, and it was impossible to gather any information from those words.
I had no choice but to move on to the next question.
“What are you going to do with me?”
“I don’t know. I’m thinking about it now, too. It’s uncomfortable to talk like that, so shouldn’t I take that off first?”
The man who had been a little away suddenly strode towards me.
What… What are you taking off?!
I was startled for a moment and shrunk my body, but the next thing I felt was the feeling of the mask being Removed from my head.
In an instant, my eyes, which had been seeing everything dark, became brighter.
And I experienced a whole new world.
It was the Feeling of being born.
My eyes froze in amazement at the splendor I saw for the first time, the only one in the world.
In front of my eyes was the most handsome face I could imagine.
He was Standing outside the borderline of being handsome, he was so handsome, he was truly a person mixed with my tastes.
[ T/l: please now I also want to see his face- even tho it’s on the cover lol]
Oh, my God.
I was so stunned, to the point I couldn’t keep my mouth shut. Even the saliva that was in my mouth was about to come out.
“Why are you so surprised?”
The man in front of me had a puzzled expression.
That expression on his face was incredibly cute.
This is crazy! This is crazy!
My soul ran wild inside my body like an excited monkey.
As soon as I saw it, I was convinced. This person is my favorite. I struggled under the blanket every night because I wanted to see him so much !
Swallowing the saliva in my mouth, I put his name in my mouth. My cheeks were flushed with light redness.
“Yes, that’s right. Eileen Cowett.”
Archduke Russlo looked at me and called me that. It was only then that my sense of reality started to come back.
I had completely forgotten about my situation because I was crazy about the fact that I had my favorite person right in front of me.
I thought over the familiar name.
Eileen is definitely a supporting extra character in the web novel [ I tamed the Mad Emperor], and is the name of Emperor Kyle Russlo’s fiance… Did I just possess that woman?
If so, this situation is understandable.
Grand Duke Russlo kidnaps Eileen Cowett, the emperor’s official fiancee.
According to the original novel, the previous emperor, Carlon Russlo, was a tyrant. He slaughtered all his brothers in the name of strengthening the throne, including Raymond Russlo’s father, Lewin Russlo.
Kyle, who was raised by a terrifying father, was on good terms with Raymond at first. Expectations were high around him because he was the good child that would not be a tyrant.
The day he becomes emperor, there will be peace in the Prairie Empire. However, when the emperor died and Kyle became emperor, he suddenly changed. Even now on streets, you would get to hear that, like father like son.
This led Raymond to decide to take revenge and rebel.
The kidnapping of the emperor’s fiancee was also part of revenge to discredit the emperor.
By the way, my heart started beating in a different way.
Archduke Russlo slowly sat on the edge of the bed. The distance between the archduke’s face and mine is now about one inch. He patted me on the cheek with the back of his hand and soon grabbed my chin.
[T/l: KYAA, omg kiss now😂🥰]
“What if you steal the lips of the noble princess Cowett?”
The archduke’s gaze, staring with half-closed eyes, was mesmerizing.
The blue eyes that seduced the opponent were like the sea that I wanted to jump into, I felt as if I would have a nosebleed right now. The red uniform he was wearing added more sexiness.
Oh, my God, this is that part.
It is the scene where the Grand Duke intentionally tried to covet Eileen with a thought to torment the emperor like this, but then gives up.
