Dragon’s Bloodline — Chapter 2

Mother is a Witch

 

Riana Crystal. Nicknamed Ria. That’s her name in this world.

That’s right, her.
A man that did nothing but temper his skills and ignore man-woman relationships for more than forty years, was reborn as an indescribably adorable little girl.

(I definitely… didn’t hear anything about what happens to gender… Perhaps it was determined by the Gift…)
Even when told I was dead, and when I was told to reincarnate into an alternate world I wasn’t disturbed, I gave up when I was reborn as a woman.
After all, the son that accompanied me for many years is gone…
I was depressed after noticing. Sleep eat poop, and become depressed again.

Even throughout history, there were few renowned female warriors.
Is Tomoe Gozen of the Genpei War famous in Japan? [TN: A 12th century female samurai known for bravery and strength, fought in and thought to have survived the Genpei War.]

Since this world was referred to as one of swords and magic, there’s probably many fights in the world.
So with the physical handicap females have, it might be difficult to walk down the warrior’s road.

Apart from that… I need to organize what is going on.

First of all, my mother’s name is Agatha. Her occupation is a Magic Shop owner.
Black hair and dark eyes. They look the same as Ria’s. Though it may be because her daughter is looking at her in a favorable light, she was worthy of being called a beauty.
The shop, that was a part of the house, mainly sells Magical Medicine. Other than that it also provides medical treatment and fortune-telling by way of magic.
Judging by the conversations the customers have, she seems quite skilled.

I don’t have a father. It seems she is single mother.
It was never brought up as a topic.

There is another person lodging here.
Her name is Fei. A girl in her teens. Her hair color is one that wasn’t on Earth, blue.
She’s an apprentice and an employee of Agatha’s shop, also helping to take care of Ria.

Because Ria slept in that room, she only knew that much information.
For the time being she slept, drank her mother’s milk, excreted, cried, sometimes washed with hot water, and the days passed.
Even if you have memories from a previous life, nothing could be done in a baby’s body. To begin with, the desire to sleep was strong, and most of the time is spent sleeping.

The turning point came half a year after being born.

“Well, this is interesting.”
Placing a finger to her lips, Agatha was gazing at Ria. They were at the counter of the shop.
“What’s wrong, manager?”
Fei asked while cleaning a shelf. When she called Agatha, she usually referred to her as manager.
“Even using identification magic on her, I can’t see her Status.”
“Oh, by some chance, you have that Gift don’t you?”
Although that Gift is rare, Fei had it as well. Though I believe that in front of Agatha’s Gift, it isn’t as good.
Because other people can’t see her abilities, wouldn’t it be very helpful for certain situations?

For Ria, on the other hand, hearing about this made her troubled at her thoughtlessness.
From birth until now, she had never once checked her abilities.

(For Self Check… do I only have to think about it?)
A transparent screen floated in front of me. It showed abilities, skills, and blessings. The blessings were probably because of the Gift.

[Dragon’s Bloodline] [Self Check], that’s good. Although those are good…

[Divine Protection of the Goddess]
[Divine Protection of the War God]

(What’s going on?)
There should have been only two selected Gifts. However, it’s obvious that these two, I don’t remember being written there.

(Divine Protection of the Goddess… when did I get that? And it also says Divine Protection of the War God…)
That’s impossible, there was indeed a Goddess there, but this implies that a God of War was there as well.
While thinking about that, Ria focused on the Divine Protection of the Goddess.

[Divine Protection of the Goddess]
Slight increase to defense. Slight increase to intelligence.

Thinking about the conversation with the goddess, she seemed to hold some goodwill towards me.
Though I don’t know how much effect it will have, I am thankful.
(The problem is this other one…)

[Divine Protection of the War God]
Raises the morale of warriors under your command.
Greatly increases the abilities of soldiers under your command.
Will not be hit by stray arrows and stray bullets.
Bird’s-eye view of battlefield situations.
Advantageous weather towards your army.
Ally’s morale will not deteriorate from disadvantageous situations. Etc.

(What is this?)
In effect it’s like telling me to go to war. Furthermore, in a position of command.

“Even so, isn’t her magic power high?”
Agatha and Fei’s conversation continued.
“It is. It’s already about the same as mine, and is stable without rampaging as well. I guess these are the makings of a genius.”

The two had that kind of a conversation. By the way, in [Dragon’s Bloodline] there seems to be something named [Read Resistance], which apparently prevents Identify.

“The millennium will be ending again soon… that demon’s revival should also be close.”
Agatha muttered something disturbing, then raised her head and declared.

“I’ve decided! I’ll make this child an elite magician, and she’ll be a hero’s comrade!”

 

 

Why did this happen?

        1. The MCs name pre-reincarnation? No, the gods only thought about it, not giving the name. I haven’t read ahead, either.

              1. But what kind of harem? A reverse harem full of males? A typical harem full of females(though also not typical since the MC body is female)? Or a mixed harem of females and males? I personallyt hope for the mixed harem since that would be funniest.

                1. I highly doubt she’ll throw herself into relationships easily now that she’s been reborn. Therefore, I think the Hero or another male in the party will repeatedly try to seduce her but never succeed, IF she actually becomes a companion. By her blessings, she could probably succeed as a commander in a lot of places, so that’s not impossible.

                  1. I wouldn’t be suprised if (s)he became hero’s companion and then the hero died from a slime or something just as embarassing πŸ˜€ then (s)he would take over his duties/harem πŸ˜€

  1. Thanks for the new chapter!
    Sad to hear that about SYnE but it might be better to focused your energy on another series after the extra chapters because com’on if it stopped at a cliffhanger that is just to tragic to read up to and then stop. Well this is my own opinion and you are free to do whatever you want. πŸ˜›
    That said, keep up the awesome work. πŸ™‚

      1. We can just say it ended with him getting his revenge and leaving it at that. Better that that getting stuck at an unbearable cliffhanger. Though I will say I wanna see his harem grow lol.

    1. I more or less said father down in the comments.
      P.S. if you translate to the cliffhanger people will keep bugging you for the next chapter. Even if you tell there’s no more. this way no as many.

  2. T_T it truly is gender bender. Sadly, I can’t handle this genre and worsened by the bad news that SYnE is on hiatus which leaves me no choice but to wait and hope the author resumes writing. Thanks for translating, I hope fellow readers that enjoy this type likes it. As for me, Ill just quietly wait for better news

  3. Please focus on this series until the author of Suterareta Yuusha no Eiyuutan restarts producing chapters again. I don’t want to be left at a cliffhanger.

  4. well, if the autor give up,I think you should just leave surerareta where u left it since it’s could be consider an ending( he acomplished his revenge and got a haren so….)

    But thats just my opinion

    1. The only thing keeping me from doing that is that it hasn’t been officially stopped, there is an author’s note in 4-18 that says we will find out why something happened

  5. Thanks for the chapter, although I have mixed feelings about it…, I guess all depens on the hero gender if it is a woman I will keep reading and if it is man I ill have to drop it =/

    1. Truthfully in my opinion, i don’t mind gender bender as long as it is true, complete gender bender. Makes it funnier. But i can’t handle traps… I hope that it doesn’t turn into the cliche OP loli either. Over all i think this is a nice story. The right mixture of serious and comedy. Thanks For the chapter.

      1. I really wonder why people dislike them as well. Is it some type of gender norm thing or is it a bad past experience or is it somehow cringe inducing? Does the gender bend really detract anything from the story? Personally I find if the idea is used smartly (just like any story element) it can create an interesting additive to the story rather then detract from it so why insta hate it if the story is still good just because it involves something abnormal? This question will probably always be on my mind as one of those weird mysteries caused by the personal bias and preference of every reader.

    1. This should give you an approximate idea of their lengths (Note that SYnE averaged around 14 KB):

      1. I now want to read chapter 26-28. Something seems to happen. As to what. Only time will tell.
        You know, it’s not expensive to change your name, right? Time seems like a great name 😐

          1. The image you just posted. Chapter 26 is 6kb, 27 is 13, 28 is 17(second highest).

            Is this for dragons blood line, or for the Forsook Anti-hero?

  6. Thanks for the chapter! and I hope you really pick this up as a main project it seems generic at first but damn its interesting

  7. thanks for the awesome work!! Finally an op mc thats female! Im really looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

  8. Really wonder which love direction this gender bender will run in. Will it run the pseudo yuri route or the pseudo yaoi route(Is pseudo for both cases due to male soul in a female body meaning no matter which way MC goes it could still be considered one or the other). Or will it run a mix of the 2 with a harem of characters of both genders in there for the MC. Any way would still be funny. And the one thing I dislike bout GBs is pronouns for the MC since English doesn’t have good gender neutral pronouns. I mean you can’t really call the MC a him but you also can’t really call em a her so makes it difficult.

      1. I’m hoping for the mix since that would be funnier though Yuri is a very close second. As for if it has ecchi or not depends on how good the plot is. If plot is good then non-ecchi is fine but if plot is lackluster then ecchi at least can add more comedic value.

  9. Hahahaha!!!!
    A thinking baby sure has it nice…
    Eat shit sleep
    Eat shit sleep
    Eat shit sleep

    The author should of gone into detail about the eating part, since he has never dealt with women…

    I can just see the hilarity as the female(lol) MC is brought towards her food… And the mother is a beauty too.

    ^_~

  10. Oh God. I just realised. War God + Intelligence gifts. Dragons blood line will join them. That….. I don’t want to even guess what will happen.

  11. Too short…
    Oh, at the 1st TN note, though -> thought

    …I’m turning into a grammar nazi, haah…

  12. im not generally a fan of gender benders, it always has the same ol tropes, but ill give it a chance, just has to be interesting

  13. lololol! Now I know understood that the length of the chapters really is like that lol.
    And I’m pretty sure that she’ll just beat up the hero, I mean she’ll be stronger than the hero kukuku …

    —- Thanks for the chapter~ ^^.

  14. If she actually ends up following some do good hero around I’ll drop it. She’ll be too strong for that.

    1. uhm he got the reincarnation points for saving a bunch of lives….. If the character does not do good things its really dishonest to the character….. Although since he did seem to be a samurai then most likely he will be dedicated to some cause/person so it will be really much more complex then just “person in need must go out of way to save” type of do gooder and more like “makes a reasonable judgement but cant overlook major travesties that would besmirch his/her honor” But that’s just my idea of it XD not sure if that’s how it will roll though

      1. That’s not what I meant. I’m talking about following around a dense brick of a Hero instead of being the hero her self. I was saying she’ll be too strong to be in someone elses party.

  15. ty for this its interesting so far πŸ™‚ she should become a spellsword or something liike that

  16. You would really think that if the demon lords revival happens so often you can judge it by the year that people would have tried to cause a more lasting solution by now.
    Or at least give everyone in the country a sword, and when the demon lord appears just have everyone in teh world run at him all at once, before he can gain any power of followers.

    1. unless the demon lord have a skill that make him more powerful the more opponents he face, then making weaklings rush him will just make him unstoppable and he can kill people in decreasing strength order to never be at risk.

      another possibility is that the demon-lands kill anyone not above a certain strength making a mass-tactic useless since everybody below the threshold will die automaticly.

      and also so often?, once every thousand years is like stupidly long time back, it’s probably a large dooms day clock somewhere keeping track of it, but since most people don’t think they can do much about it they’ll ignore the impending doom as much as possible, pretty much like green house gasses.

    1. That my friend, is where you are wrong.
      I agree on the fact that S/he won’t be a Hero’s companion
      But S/he won’t be the Hero.
      S/he be the Heroes’ Pimp/Sugar Daddy!!!
      (P.S. Yes, I meant multiple heroes. The way they phrased made it seem like there are more than one.)

        1. I don’t want her to be the demon or the hero… I want to be a force of her own. I really hope we actually get her leading troops in the future and that the Divine Protection of the War God was actually foreshadowing the future rather than just being a skill that will ultimately be thrown away at some point in the series like some series that had similar starts as this one do.

          1. I can see everything you want to happen, happening except because s/he has memories of a previous life and another world she ends up at odds with the current establishment and is thus labelled demon.

  17. if we take the dragon bloodline and his divine blessing of the war god and character of last life in account. he’ll be a general of a great mercenary order or something, going from war to war and train his skills to perfection.

  18. funny thing i have checked on this place a few times before,i saw that forsaken hero stuff. hated it! moved on. today wordpress reccomends a bunch of blogs it thinks i would enjoy i press one randomly, i come to this site once again, just when i am about to close it, i read the newest post, saying something about gb. i press on the new series. i fall in love……..

    but seriously thanks for translating this series, i like it so far. even though it is like 2 chapters in.

    ps: why do i feel like i have just given my life story when i could have just written the last part?

    1. Huh. I disliked forsaken hero too. It’s too much like Arifureta for me. And I incidentally hated Arifureta even more.

  19. I feel so sorry for hir lol

    I’m sure s/he’ll rise above and be a fine magic swordswoman though. Though, considering the actual contents of the War God’s blessing, s/he could probably still enjoy all of its benefits as a mage, so long as she could find people to follow her. Which should be too hard once s/he builds a bit of a reputation using hir innate gifts and blessings.

  20. Thanks for the chapter!! I have to say that I was just hooked. lol. What mom said in the end and that OP Divine Protection of the War God. Also, despite deciding to train as a warrior, Agatha wants to train him/her as a magician. I can tell this is going to be so interesting.

    1. He pretty much has all the warrior training down packed, so learning it would be a waste of time unless he finds a really old and wise sensei that knows warrior stuff.
      And it’s not like Agatha can teach her anything else, she is only good at magic.

      1. ok thanks ..also wouldnt it be a good idea of posting you got them or something like that saves haveing to comment to more than one person and saves you time

        1. Yeah, but it feels awkward posting two info updates in a row πŸ˜€

          It was my bad for not putting that in the post to begin with, though =(

    1. The link to the raw is in the Dragon’s Bloodline page. Click on the title and it’ll bring you there

    1. I’m planning on continuing, was just finishing finals. Should have another up on the weekend, maybe 2 or 3. Depends on how long the Forsaken Hero extras take

    1. Probably because hero’s get an exclusive skill that is visible when analyzed or some birthmark or something like that.

  21. I think you’ve forgot a comma in “Sleep eat poop, and become depressed again.”
    It should probably be “Sleep, eat poop, and […]”.

    1. Well, I was trying to stick with the raw’s style of “Sleepeatpoop” in one go, but that just looks awkward… *shrug*

      Though she definitely didn’t ‘eat poop’, those words are DEFINITELY separate from each other. Rofl XD

  22. “I was depressed after noticing. Sleep eat poop, and become depressed again” BEST LINE EVER.

    and the closing. simply precious. XD

    Thanks for the translations!!!

  23. A hero’s comrade? In other words, a sacrificial pawn. Since most hero’s “comrades” get sacrificed in order for the hero to get a chance at a 1v1 vs the demon king…
