When the Death Knight attacked, Elion was the first to fall. He was knocked into the air by a shield bash from the undead before plummeting to his death.[1][2]

Abilities and Powers

Elion was just an ordinary human with no magical powers. Since he was a knight of the Theocracy, he has skill with a sword.



Belius was Elion’s Captain and superior.


  • In the Web novel, Elion was about to strike a fleeing villager, rather in the Light Novel, he was herding them in the village square.
  • Elion’s fall is more specific in the Web Novel as it stated he flew about 7 meters in the air before falling to his death.
  • While not named in the Anime, a knight depicting Elion's actions in Volume 1 does appear.
