Leon and his entourage will battle an unexpected being, Gokrok, in The Knight King Who Returned with a God, Chapter 23, after the dying Orc summons him angrily. The Orcs were disastrous beasts who lived like animals without sense or ethics.
Even though humans were ready to welcome Orcs with open arms, the Orcs attacked the humans and created a stir, maybe due to their inherently violent and vicious nature. Leon was not particularly fond of Orcs himself, and even though he was not someone from the earth, to begin with, Leon was dead set on wiping them out.
Leon’s character is certainly intriguing and funny since he has yet to adapt to the ways of human civilization. Leon acts like an absolute monarch since that is the kind of life he has always lived. Leon’s arrogance and haughty nature have made the manhwa charismatic and attracted the reader’s attention.
It is perhaps due to his nature that Leon looked down on the Orcs and found them vile and disgusting. He despised them enough to go by himself and wipe the creatures out enthusiastically; the new quest just acted like fuel for his hatred.
The Knight King Who Returned with a God is an Isekai fantasy and action manhwa that has attracted much attention since it was released this year. The manhwa is about the Knight King Leon, who returned to earth after 300 years of battling beings from another world but did not come back alone.
If you want updates about the upcoming chapter of the manhwa, then you have come to the right place. In this article, we will discuss the release date of The Knight King Who Returned with a God Chapter 23, recap the previous chapter, and tell our readers where they can read the manhwa.
The Knight King Who Returned with a God: Chapter 22 Recap
In the previous chapter of The Knight King Who Returned with a God, Leon devised a devious plan for wiping the orcs out with relative ease. Leon asks Sir Spinne to create a radioactive core and dump it in the river near the Orc village.
Hari is quite disturbed to see Leon do that and asks him if underhanded tactics like that are appropriate for someone who calls them a Knight. Leon, being the devious person he is, tells Hari that the Orcs are nothing more than vile beasts, and he is a hunter hunting them down, so honor is not needed in such a situation.
The orcs were troublesome creatures for anyone, and when the gates initially opened, humanity tried to welcome the orcs with warmth. However, as soon as the orcs stepped on the earth, they became demonic creatures and indiscriminately killed the humans. Leon found the Orcs troublesome pests that needed to be wiped out.
In the Orc village, two Orcs were fighting to prove their dominance, and the fight ended when one of the Orcs was killed by the other. The victor went to the river and scooped up some water but found the water tasted weird.
Soon enough, the Orc finds himself writhing in pain, and he is shocked to see all the other orcs in a similar state when he crawls out of his tent. The witch doctor is at a loss since neither a curse nor an enchantment made their condition so bad.
Leon directs his army to attack the Orcs when they are down, and the witch doctor figures out it is a dirty ploy played by Leon. The witch doctor is incredibly angry at Leon and Leon’s quest changes to wiping out all the hidden orcs. The Witch Doctor presents some dying orcs as sacrifices to summon the great Gokrok.
