He starts off his new life with many adventures and soon finds out that he is a war junkie. From the Demon in the Sage’s Hidden Cave to the Black Knight of the Ancient Castle of Evil Spirits, he continues to battle with strong opponents.

This is not just a story; rather, it is the epic saga of Kelvin and his supporters, who paved the route for themselves to appear in the annals of history. Will he ever be able to reclaim his former existence? Or is he going to have to give up his powers? Lets find out.
