I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 10.1

Chapter 10.1

In the world of exorcism, there are three powerful families known as the “Three Great Families.”

These families, which are deeply intertwined with countless stories throughout the series, are like civil servants of the exorcism world.

The Cheong family is known as the orthodox school of exorcism.

The Baek family studies and develops the physical applications of exorcism.

The Hwang family pursues futuristic goals by combining exorcism with technology.

It’s no exaggeration to say that these three families have dominated the Korean exorcism world for ages.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙢𝙖𝙟𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙮 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙤𝙬𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙪𝙡 𝙚𝙭𝙤𝙧𝙘𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙨 𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙆𝙤𝙧𝙚𝙖 𝙗𝙚𝙡𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙨𝙚 𝙛𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙚𝙨.」

Among them, the Cheong family is particularly prominent.

They have the longest history, and their family is said to be larger than the other two Great families combined.

The main stage of Exorcism Part 1, Cheonghwa Academy, where I belong, was also established by the Cheong family, so it goes without saying that it’s under their influence.

So, what’s the point?

The point is that in this Cheonghwa Academy, the Cheong family has virtually unlimited power.

“. . . . . . .”

One-on-one exchange classes are basically conducted in pairs. Since third-year students, who are in their graduating year, are not eligible to take courses, first-year and second-year students are paired together.

Therefore, the first step in the class is naturally for the first-year and second-year students to find partners to exchange with.

That’s why the students gathered at the meeting place were busy greeting each other and looking for someone they felt comfortable with before the professor arrived.

However, there was a sense of unease in the air right now. At the center of it all were two girls with contrasting expressions.

“We meet again?”

“. . . . . . .”

Of the two, the one who caught my eye was the first-year student, her head bowed deeply as if she were a sinner.

With her long black hair that seemed to absorb light, her sharp cat-like eyes, and her distinctive blue eyes, she was clearly one of the important characters in the original work that I knew.

「. . .𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙖𝙩𝙢𝙤𝙨𝙥𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙨 𝙦𝙪𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙨𝙚.」

Everyone could tell that something bad was happening. However, no one moved to improve the situation.

I quietly activated my ability, looking at the second-year student who was bullying the girl.

Ding.

【Cheong Haram】

▶Level 31

▶Ability Scores

【Stamina: C】

【Spiritual Power: A+】

【Spellcraft: B+】

【Mental Strength: B-】

▶Traits (5/10)

【Emotion Absorption (S)】

【Accelerated Growth (B)】

【Output Amplification (B-)】

【Dictator (B-)】

【Intimidation (C+)】

As expected, there’s a reason why the other students have been watching from the sidelines.

The one creating this atmosphere was Cheong Haram, a member of the Cheong family, which is known as the academy’s ruling family.

「𝘿𝙞𝙙 𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙃𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙢 𝙩𝙖𝙠𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙘𝙡𝙖𝙨𝙨?」

I was just as surprised.

Usually, top-tier students don’t participate in one-on-one exchange classes.

For those with exceptional talent, it’s much more efficient to spend time on self-development than to engage in exchanges between seniors and juniors.

Of course, I could guess why she was here. It was because of Cheong Juhwa, another Cheong family member sitting next to her.

“How typical. I thought I wouldn’t have to see you if I came here?”

“T-That’s not it. . . . . . .”

Cheong Juhwa kept her head bowed humbly, avoiding the eyes of her senior, Cheong Haram.

To explain the relationship between these two, I need to first mention one characteristic of the Three Great families.

「𝘽𝙡𝙤𝙤𝙙𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙚 𝙎𝙪𝙥𝙧𝙚𝙢𝙖𝙘𝙮.」

In this world, where there are actual differences in talent based on bloodline, those from the Three Great families receive treatment that is completely different from that of ordinary people.

Simply by inheriting even a little bit of the family’s blood, they are treated as elites.

「𝘼𝙣𝙙 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙛𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙚𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙫𝙚𝙨, 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙩𝙢𝙤𝙨𝙥𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙨 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙣 𝙨𝙩𝙧𝙤𝙣𝙜𝙚𝙧.」

The closer one is to the direct bloodline, the more power they have, while those with weaker bloodlines are forced to live in discrimination, knowingly or unknowingly.

One thing that the Cheong family strictly prohibits is the release of the family’s blood to outsiders.

In other words, only incestuous marriages are allowed.

One might call it an anachronistic rule, but in this world, it wasn’t strange.

The side effects of this can be solved through the exorcism techniques possessed by the family, and in fact, the children born in this way all possess high levels of talent.

「𝙃𝙤𝙬𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧, 𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙅𝙪𝙝𝙬𝙖’𝙨 𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙨 𝙗𝙧𝙤𝙠𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙤.」

Cheong Juhwa’s father married an ordinary person, who wasn’t even an exorcist, and had Cheong Juhwa.

Of course, he was expelled from the family, and after suffering countless hardships due to the pressure from his family, who saw him as an outcast, his weakened mother passed away, leaving the family behind.

The father’s end wasn’t good either.

He was tormented by the guilt of not being able to protect his wife properly, and he eventually succumbed to his illness and died.

That’s why Cheong Juhwa grew up with her grandmother since she was young. She also changed her surname from Cheong (靑), which means the Cheong family, to Cheong (淸). TL: HUH?

「𝘼𝙣𝙙 𝙖𝙛𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙢𝙖𝙣𝙮 𝙩𝙬𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙣𝙨, 𝙨𝙝𝙚 𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙖𝙘𝙖𝙙𝙚𝙢𝙮.」

However, she wasn’t lucky. Of all people, Cheong Haram, the direct bloodline of the Cheong family and the next generation’s rising star, was in the same grade above her.

Naturally, it goes without saying that she was completely crushed.

“It can’t be helped that someone with such lowly origins is also an idiot. How could she be so predictable?”

“. . . . . . .”

  1. thank for the chapter
    if my guess from description is right the woman in cover should be
    the rich girl should be green hair
    the one from orphan as mc or original mc shoud sitting cross-leg
    and the one who get bullied right now shoud be the girl who hold talisman
    right?
