The Saintess and the Black Wolf


With the black wolf as her guide, Saintess Alka followed it obediently.
She wondered how it had come to this, but she couldn’t think of an answer.
However, since she had always dove into dungeons by herself, she didn’t find it so bad being guided in the dungeon. She even felt like she’d become a tamer.

[Mu? … Was there a wall here?]

Correction, they were lost.
However, the wolf said something outrageous in the next instant.

[… Destroy it? Kun kun… yep, I can.] [1]
“Eh—you can destroy it?”
[I can. I, am strong. Even if I, destroy it, it’s fine.]

For destroying a dungeon’s wall, the saintess felt it was a very out-of-the-norm monster.
However, inside [Treaty]’s effect, the saintess knew that dungeon walls somehow mended themselves at a ridiculous speed. To the extent that they would repair after just 0.1 seconds even if it was completely destroyed. She had even gotten herself caught inside of a wall, dying. Getting crushed was painful.

“No, it’s alright. Let’s search for a path.”

The black wolf retraced its path. Trying to follow it, the saintess suddenly heard the sound of something moving fast.


She tilted her neck to the side, inclining it on reflex. Immediately after that, an arrow cut through the space her head had just been at.
Then a pain followed. An arrow hiding in the shadow of the first one managed to strike her in the shoulder.
A sniper. Moreover, an advanced one. Looking in the direction the arrows came from, she saw a golem with two bows equipped in both of its hands. No, ‘both of its hands’ was a bit off. Why? Because it had four hands and four feet. A hand extended from its back, re-nocking the bow with arrows.

However, the black wolf preyed on it immediately. It never released the next two arrows.

“Ku–, golems… no choice. ■■, ■■■■■■■■—[Healing].”

She forcibly pulled the arrow out. There was flesh still attached to the arrowhead due to [Spines] on it, but she didn’t pay it any attention. Since it was somewhat numbed, she gouged out some more of the wound, rubbing antidote into it as she placed recovery magic on herself. The magical power’s healing of her wound she had gouged out was compensated for, recovering.
The black wolf returned.

[Oi, it shot, my follower, so I ate it, was that bad?]
“… No, you saved me.”
[Hmm, good then. Let’s go.]

The black wolf resumed walking as if nothing had happened.
… The saintess once again followed behind it. Unexpectedly, she realized that she was being defended.

It wasn’t too big of a deal. She was simply shot by a variation species of golem. That’s all.
It was a monster that used a large amount of poison, as well as a monster that used a bow and arrows. It was even a monster that had four arms and legs.
However, if the wolf didn’t deal with the golem before she was hit with another poisoned arrow, it might have been too late for her to cope with it.


The wolf flicked its tail… four arrows dropped to the ground.
The saintess noticed the new attack as well. However, she hadn’t realized the number was doubled. There were two of that variation species this time… they were variation species, but there were several of the same kind… maybe it was a new species? If so, she’d name these hecatoncheir golems or something. [1]

[What do, you want?]
“… I’ll defeat them.”

The saintess retrieved her battle hammer from her [Storage]. They were still golems. Even if they were variation species, their basis shouldn’t have changed.
The wolf didn’t interfere this time… it didn’t attack the saintess from behind either.
She quickly put an end to the golems and went back to the black wolf.

[Then, let’s go?]
“… Yeah.”

The saintess had always dove into dungeons by herself. She had also died alone, and captured them alone. It would have been a different story if she had comrades that could be revived, but unfortunately, she hadn’t met someone like that so far. Even if she searched for someone like that, they likely didn’t exist…
And so, this was her first time being defended.
It was surprising that the one who should have been her enemy—the wolf—was the one doing it, though.

… She felt a thump in her chest.
The antivenom she’d taken a while before might have been a little slow in circulating around.

[Mu? This is also, a wall… Destroy it?]
“No, I have [Mapping], so let’s look for another way. Destroying it is a last-resort measure.”
[Really? Well, okay… Follow me, close. You, are weak, after all.]
“… Right. Fufufu.”

The saintess obediently followed the black wolf closely, who was searching for a path.
This was also the first time she walked onto the battlefield behind someone.
Even when she asked for a guide, the saintess walked in the lead. The saintess should defend others, because they had limited lives, because the saintess was the strongest.

But right now, she was being protected by a wolf much stronger than herself.

(I am weak, so I’ll follow.)

The saintess walked through the dungeon with fresh feelings that she had never experienced before.
She even considered spending a little extra time in the dungeon’s capture.

  1. Oh dear, hope haku received the message soon, otherwise Rokuko is going to be in danger. Didn’t Haku put out a warrent a while back about defending Rokuko from destruction? Thanks for the chapter.

    1. Should have sent the message sooner. They had all the time in the world while the saintess was playing around. Retarded couple of dungeon idiots.

      1. Ou, they are even more retarsed than I thought. From your comment I thought they sent a message to Haku, but they didn’t even try to get her to avenge them.

    2. The Saintess is from another kingdom, one who’s doctrine is that the dungeons are something that must be destroyed. Therefore, she would know nothing about Kehma and Rokuko’s dungeon being prohibited from being destroyed. Additionally, she is doing this unilaterally, as her country told her to immediately come back. I think she will ignore anything that prohibits her from doing what she ‘believes’ to be right, with a “It’s the Light God’s Decree” being her justification.

  2. If we were to create a room that the only exit is upwards, and the door seals like the sword testing room, fill it with water, and dump the revive shrine in…. is she trapped to permanently drown in there?

    1. But it is too late now, or too early, because the dungeon weakened and rooms cannot be created. Wolf sniffs only fake golem walls. It wouldn’t be able to sniff around real dungeon walls

  3. they should move hide or switch the real core by hand or golem now with these 2 lost in the moving maze.
    I would also suggest flooding the lowest level so the one that’s trying to kill them will have to re-spawn after running out of air and then she will be forced to try to dive trough a under water level.
    heck send a magic golem or 5 to do it at least it mite buy them the time they need for the lockdown to end.

    1. yes Rin is doing almost nothing but leading the way but she is trying to brake the core witch will kill just about everybody and make the cave that the town is built in and the area around it cave-in because all of it is part of the dungeon and is built on it or in it killing the towns people that don’t get out in time.
      when I think about this basic common info that every one that raids dungeons should know even more so the saintess that dose this a lot not even thinking of the damage she will do by braking this core that in effect holds up the town she needs to be put in jail for the rest of her life.
      she even wants to go do this in the capital city no wonder her home king dome was thinking she mite start a war if she dose do this and kills a lot of people because of her own blind ideals the kingdom wanting her head on a pike will the least of their problems.

      I am really wondering how her kingdom could even call her a saint in the first place seams that she is more of a insane woman that would kill hundreds of people to destroy what she thinks is evil.

      1. In her kingdom dungeons are considered innately evil and always to be destroyed, independently of the consequences. Of course all within moderation, not even this religious based Kingdom wants to go to war because of a small C rank dungeon.

        She is a Saintess because she has strong special skills and serves the Kingdom. If you think about it, she is like a MMO game character, always reviving after death and able to learn thru deadly trial and error

  4. the only other idea I have is to while these 2 are lost ask for help form the dragon next door that can sill fully use their dungeon control and has spare lava connected with the 2nd floor that you can use to fill in the 3rd floor.

  5. Thanks for the chapter! I have a feeling she’s either gonna join his harem(?) or else somehow the slime wolf is gonna become her pet.

    1. I hope they both die horribly miserable death. And Kehma and Rokuko should also suffer from their idiocy of wasting so much time they could have spent asking for help from Haku or Ontentoo. Kehma should lose at least an arm and a leg, or both arms.

      1. I have never seen an intelligent comment by you. Why do you make so many posts that are just complaints about the characters and their actions, as if anything you could do would be better. You don’t even put in any effort to try and understand why the characters are doing things the way they are, just complain that they don’t do things the way that you think they should.

        1. “You don’t even put in any effort to try and understand”
          You don’t make much more effort either if you speak like that. Reminds me of some guys who keep bashing all of Mr Void’s comments on wuxiaworld even though some of them make perfect sense some people just don’t want to understand. Yet they don’t even try to understand the point and strart throwing crap the moment they see him. That you don’t see how I try to understand characters is not my fault. I sure do try to understand them and try to relate to them.
          When I see someone procrastinating and doing nothing when their life is in danger and they know it is dangerous and that enemy is immortal and simply won’t stop, only then I rage. Kehma could have at the very least notified Haku that someone wants to kill Rokuko. They are in the territory of Raverio Kingdom, their capital has to be closer than Holy Kingdom’s capital. In the age where telecommunication is nonexistent capitals are placed closer to the center. The letter to Holy Kingdom’s capital reached pretty fast. I think that now is time to ask for Ontentoo’s help now that they wasted their chance to ask Haku.

    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    I wonder why doesn’t keima just pop out and say something to change Rin’s mind?

    Meanwhile, Saintess is slowly being reformed into the Rin’s follower

  7. This is sooo good. One of the funniest and most unique dungeon stories of all time.
    Thank you translator-san! Really appreciate the time and effort you put in to bring us this wonderful story

  8. WolfxSaintess-sama?
    I feel like this suddenly going to turn into Inside the Cave of Obscenity.. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  9. Hecatoncheir the hundred armed greek giants or something… I think they also had a hundred faces or something which should be an interesting project for kehma. Maybe attach a revolving head with masks on each side?

  10. Thanks for the flood of chapters.

    “ヘカトンケイルゴーレム”, its probably supposed to be Hecatoncheir, a reference to the greek giant or the Final Fantasy summon.

    1. Umm…? Saintess is a proper word. The raw expressly states female saint, the equivalent of Saintess. Calling her Saint would be incorrect.

      1. *googles*

        Huh, its actually in the dictionary. Mea culpa, then. I honestly think that is odd because as I knew it, the female catholic saints are alwasy referred by just ‘saint’

      2. Ex: Saint Mary

        Seeing ‘saintess’ in L/WN translations is honestly the first for me. So, sorry. I thought that was artifact engrish from the raw
