Jang-Gun (장군- means General in Korean) is the main protagonist of the series. He generally uses fire magic, especially the spell Fireball. He is the leader of the legendary team, Triple Threat, composed of himself and his two closest friends, Adol, and Boromir. He is intelligent enough to manipulate most people, and has even caused AIs to doubt their own existences. His intelligence is arguably his most valuable tool in battle, even with Master level skills and his aspirations to become a Grand Mage.
After encountering Yureka, he initially tries to torture her to reveal information about her. Upon realizing she can feel pain, he stops, and eventually decides to find things out on his own. He has since been conducting a personal investigation into the nature of the Artificial Intelligences of Last Saga. When Yureka dies and Jae-Ha secretly replaces her, he gets so angry that he tells her to never show herself in front of him again, unaware that is was Jae-Ha. Later he comes to accept that Yureka and Jae-Ha are the same being and cares equally for them.
He frequently uses Yureka's ID card to change his identity. He is currently negotiating a tournament to find the people after Yureka.
Jang-Gun is generally a selfish kid and will do anything to achieve his own goals. He has a Napoleon Complex and loses all control, immediately attacking anyone who calls him "short," "little boy," etc. He's a jerk and he knows it, but he remains loyal to his friends and has some sense of honor. He often keeps his friends out of the loop when danger is concerned. In real life he is Jang-Gun, but in Lost Saga, he refers himself as Lotto. Even he admits he is not sure which of the two is his real personality.
When in the real world, he is Jang-Gun: a quiet ace student at school who is secretly obsessed with the online game, Lost Saga. Despite never really studying, he is able to maintain an A+ average, indicating how smart he naturally is. He is a bit moody but generally a nice person, popular with the girls in his class, and an excellent student that's always studying, even on the way to school. This is all a facade as he has no interest in the girls who approach him, seeing them as annoyances, and despite his good grades, only gives the image of being a study-freak even though he is exhausted the night before from gaming all-night.
In Lost Saga, he is Lotto (Assumed to be written 로토): an abrasive, and sometimes wicked, character who becomes obsessed with his AI companion Yureka after learning about her. Lotto is initially manipulative and swindling though set on his goals. This is just because he knows it's a game. When real people are involved, he can be altruistic, putting himself on the line to protect others. He has a fear of horses, seen reacting negatively around Aradon's horse.
A year before the series begins, Triple Threat were on the hunt for a criminal named Dreymon. While his strength was nothing special, he was very good at keeping hidden. At the time, newbie players Julie and K.C attempted to steal from them, but were caught. Boromir and Lotto taunt and threaten to take them to jail, since stealing is a crime in the game, just like the real world. Adol, however, recognizes them as the pop idols, The Lovely Angels. The girls admit this, acting cute and hoping an autograph will get the to let them go. Lotto is interested in the fact they are The Lovely Angels and Boromir adds they have no use for an autograph. The group evilly blesses their fortune as the girls hold each other in fear of them. The team opens a stand outside of town to exploit them. Boromir advertises as loudly as he can that players can have the chance to hug for 150 Gold or kiss for 200 Gold or both for 250 Gold. Adol is apprehensive, but goes along with it as Lotto collects the fees. Overenthusiastic (and even gross) fans line up to kiss and hug them, despite their objections. Sick of it, they tell Lotto they'd rather go to jail after all. Lotto, however, threatens to leak their thieving which would hurt their publicity and maybe even ruin them. Julie cries as she went through a lot of trouble to be a singer. K.C. argues that what Lotto is doing now would also cause bad publicity. Lotto reveals he had everyone who paid sign a contract that required to keep them a secret and even offered to change the kiss to a kiss on the cheek, but K.C. doesn't believe them. He then tells the fans,a bunch of dark-skinned and muscley players, to keep this a secret or they would not receive an after-service, to Julie's objections. The players quickly and happily agree, despite K.C.'s objections. As Gina continues to cry, K.C. decides they'll leave after, not caring if they reveal everything. Lotto is exasperated at their stubborn behavior and Adol regrets being a part of this thanks to Boromir's debt. Lotto reminds them that they are in the middle of the forest with hormone-driven boys and that if they left, he wouldn't be responsible for whatever happened to them afterwards. Trapped, K.C. was forced to give out 72 kisses and 91 hugs while Gina was forced to give out 80 kisses and 102 hugs before. By then, Gina and Jin-Mi's power was cut off, booting them offline, allowing them to escape. Through this deception, they were able to find Dreymon and easily defeat him as well as make a profit.
OPENING ARC Edit
Arriving in Normal Town Edit
Lotto and his friends log in and meet up in Normal Town, the capital of Lucafaria. As they discuss what they should do, Lotto freezes and is disconnected from the internet. Jang-Gun quickly rises from his bed to find his sister, Jang-Mi, on his computer. He quickly chastises her for using it since the net-terminal he uses takes up all of the cable's capacity, making multi-channels impossible. He suggests using dial-up, but she complains it's so slow, even though it's not her computer, to his chagrin. He lets her know it's frustrating getting kicked off like that, though she herself doesn't get why the game is fun since it makes her dizzy. Jang-Gun rhetorically asks if chatting with guys at night is fun and what their mother would think. Jang-Mi simply wishes her brother a good night as he logs back on.
Back in the game, Lotto finds himself in a bathroom (most likely placed there by his friends as a prank). He receives a message from Adol to meet at the pub, frustrated at not saying which pub it is. When he arrives, he finds Boromir trash-talking about his size and messages Adol to relay a threat while Lotto points his sword at Boromir's neck, making him apologize and submit. Lotto reveals he found them quickly because of how predictable they were. After making fun of Boromir for not being able to taste alcohol for being a minor, they agree to go to the Sunken Dungeon.
When they arrive, Lotto and his team are initially skeptical since it appears no different than the dungeons at Easy Town, but because it was around their level they decide to head on in. They are interrupted at the entrance by two Swordmaster players, Rowe and Michelle, mistaking them for beginners. They try to pretend to guide the trio around the Sunken Dungeon, but are ignored as they enter. Rowe and Michelle follow trying to insist, but Adol quickly deduces that they died and lost their loot in the dungeon. With no recovery items and no money, they're hoping to join a party in order to get them back. Adol allows them to join, so long as they stay out of the way, with Michelle chastising Rowe. When they encounter a monster, Rowe kills it as a means to help the Triple Threat team, but was furiously reprimanded by Lotto for taking his experience. He tells them that doing nothing is helping them and wants to leave them behind.
As they fight, Michelle notes that they are a Swordmaster (Lotto), Warrior (Boromir), and Mage (Adol). Rowe adds that it's a common party grouping since they can cover each other's weaknesses, but that they are not anything special. As they reach a split on the tunnels, a Minotaur approaches, the same monster that killed Rowe and Michelle. It manages to land a blow on Adol and breaks Lotto's sword when he tries to attack. Rowe thinks they are defeated and resigns himself to attack the monster, despite their earlier objections but Boromir stops him. Rowe starts to object but Boromir confidently confirms they are not defeated and casts Cure on Adol allowing him to regain his strength and use Striking and continually punches the Minotaur. Michelle explains that Cure is an advanced healing spell and Rowe realizes Adol is a Monk, both amazed at how strong they are. Lotto then chuckles evilly and begins casting a doubled Fireball. Rowe is shocked that he is a Mage. Boromir notices Lotto is going crazy and tries to get Adol to stop him, but is angrily rebuffed. Before he can cast the spell, Lotto is once again frozen and disconnected from the net. He finds his mother, smoking, and turning off the power as his sister is sleeping on the keyboard. She asks if he was up all night gaming and tells him to wake up his sister so they can eat something. Lotto wails about her turning off the power.
As he rides the train, Jang-Gun is still sleep-deprived from gaming all night. He overhears two girls from his class, Yun-Ji and Seung-Mi,i talking and switches to his honor student personality: vibrant, friendly, and holding an electronic study dictionary. Turns out they are on so early because they are on classroom duty. Seung-Mi advises not to study so hard since he seems to be doing so as they go to school. Yun-Ji is impressed with his ethic and how he's not a net addict like the others, though wishes they could chat online too, straying into another conversation with Seung-Mi. Lotto, internally, is annoyed that she equates chatting to being online, only seeing it as a means to hook up.
When he arrives in class, Kwan-Su and Woon-Suk greet him to find him studying on his terminal. Woon-Suk however presses a button that switches from a dictionary to a Lost Saga game map, the Photon Dungeon, much to Woon-Suk's and Kwan-Su's amusement. Jang-Gun complains about being sleepy. Woon-Suk suggests control his playing or using Sleep Mode since he seems addicted, but Jang-Gun refuses saying he loses feeling that way, making it harder to play. Woon-Suk then asks when he sleeps. Kwan-Su answers to just sleep at school and tells them to wake them up at lunchtime. Jang-Gun states he's not like Kwan-Su and that Lost Saga is starting to get boring, contemplating playing a different game. Woon-Suk also wonder if there's an MMORPG they haven't played yet. Jang-Gun continues saying he changed classes for something different, but reverts to his original class when he gets angry making the whole thing pointless. Woon-Suk then passes along the news he heard about Lost Saga getting an expansion update soon. Jang-Gun asks when it will be released. Woon-Suk explains there's no release date but that the servers have been unstable, which he suspects is things being tested out. He further explains that the servers are going to handles twice as many members, at least 5 different countries to explore, and that Master classes will get their maximum levels increased. Jang-Gun is impressed and remarks that Dexon, Inc. must be making a lot of money. Woon-Suk thinks it's more than that since there's a rumor the company is merging with Mega Entertainment and that they received enough offers from 3rd parties to revamp the gameplay. This news excites Jang-Gun and Woon-Suk shows him the site.
Yun-Ji enters the classroom and greets Woon-Suk and Jang-Gun as Jang-Gun quickly switches back to his study site. Yun-Ji looks over his screen and commends him for preparing for today's lesson, though Woon-Suk missed this change. Jang-Gun asks what she wants and Yun-Ji asks Jang-Gun to help her carry the water kettle for her when it gets full, blushing. Jang-Gun politely refuses with the excuse that he's busy and Kwan-Su quickly stands up. Yun-Ji nervously greets him and Kwan-Su returns his greeting, calling her "Cute Yun-Ji." Thinking he's acting like a shounen hero, he offers to carry the kettle for her, dragging an objecting Yun-Ji along the way. Jang-Gun says by, relieved that "the annoying girl" is gone so he can read the news site from earlier. Woon-Suk, disgusted, tells Jang-Gun to control himself, asking if that's the real Jang-Gun he sees on the net. Jang-Gun admits he doesn't know either, since the unique thing about the net is he can show another side of himself.
That evening, back on Lost Saga, Lotto pumps up the team to start the day (in-game time) in a lively way. They decide to go to the Photon Dungeon, like they always do. Lotto, not paying attention, states he should Master his Swordmaster class before the update and runs into Capri. Lotto accuses him for not paying attention. Capri responds the it was Lotto who wasn't paying attention, calling him a kid. This sets Lotto off and he prepares to comically fight him. Capri candidly states he called a kid a kid. Adol, restraining Lotto, agrees there is no problem. Lotto starts to get upset at Adol, but Adol apologizes and tells him to bear with it. Two players, Stanker and Coen, overhear Lotto's claim to class mastery and mock him for it. They approach Capri and Coen uses him as an example on how it would take him half a year to Master his Warrior class, even though he's Level 82. Stanker adds that only 10 players are Class Masters in Lost Saga and that they need to have 6,000 hours to reach the status, making it very hard to find any player that persistent. asks if they ever met a Class Master, to which they admit they only heard rumors around Normal City. Stanker relays The Fallen Angels, Julie and K.C., who are Master level Thieves. He then tells of Ilban, the Dark Priest, known for his violent behavior who lives in the Dragonlands. He then tells of a player named Dark, a silent Master Mage, who holds the record for becoming a Master in the shortest amount of time. He then reveals Lotto, Adol, and Boromir. He explains they are arrogant players who have been around since the earliest beta stages of the game and are known for being able to completely balance their power. Finally, he reveals Basara, the mysterious Warrior, who lives up to his reputation as the greatest player in Lost Saga. Capri is impressed they have such knowledge, to which they admit they've been around a while despite their levels. Capri recalls he received help from a Level 50 Ilban back when Capri was a newbie. Coen and Stanker are in awe that he met Ilban and ask if he mentored Capri. Capri answers he paid back everything he owed. Lotto, Adol, and Boromir decide to leave since it'll be too much trouble if they are discovered.
As they walk off, they come across an injured player who begs them to his friend who is trapped in a dungeon with an endless supply of monsters. Adol asks the player to calm down and explain himself. The player, distraught, explains they kept coming despite constantly killing them. They couldn't disconnect and even if they died, they would revive in the same spot, implying he barely escaped. Lotto suspects it's an infinite spawn bug and Adol agrees. Capri arrives also voicing his suspicion the server has become unstable in the middle of upgrading and then asks where the dungeon is. The player objects saying the won't be able to fight them off with a few guys since they were very powerful, not just numerous. Capri rebuffs this saying other than Bosses, there's no monster he can't slay and the size of the mob doesn't matter, asking again. The player relents saying it's in the Photon Dungeon. Lotto, Adol, and Boromir silently and awkwardly look at each other.
In the dungeon, Capri and the player are shown to be fighting the monsters and struggling. Tearfully, the player insists it's only a little further. Capri is surprised, not just by the excessive monster, but by the color and boss-like strength of the monsters. He calls over to Stanker and Coen, who are in a safe location, asking them to help think of a plan. However, Stanker refuses saying they don't stand a chance if even a Level 80+ player is having trouble. They then decide to take Capri's loot after he dies. Capri is enraged at their cowardice, threatening to kill them. Coen mocks Capri for doing something impossible as stopping an infinite spawn bug. Stanker admits there is actually way. He explains that originally monsters were programmed to only spawn if an existing monster disappears and says the infinite bug spawn creates additional monsters after a set amount of time, regardless if one has been killed or not. If they can block the spot where the monsters spawn, they'd be able to block the creation of additional monsters. Overhearing this, Lotto then kicks Stanker off the ledge, getting him killed instantly by the monsters. Capri looks up to find Lotto, Adol, and Boromir, with Boromir holding up Coen. Lotto then greets Capri by praising him, to his surprise. Lotto then notices they are new monsters and wonders if they are for the upgrade test. Adol notices they are Black Werewolves, but has no data on them and that they should be careful. Boromir interprets it as saying they don't need to hold back. Lotto is excited since he was wondering if his skills have gotten rusty. Adol agrees it's a good opportunity to vent their accumulated stress and won't interfere with them this time. They then begin fighting. Lotto then asks himself why he's getting so excited over the new monsters that are appearing soon.
During the fight, Lotto burns Coen with his Fireball shooting him straight out of the dungeon. By the time the system debugger, Myuria, arrives, he and Adol are lost in their bloodlust as he tosses Fireballs wildly and savagely. He snaps out of it when Boromir alerts them that "Medusa" has arrived, running away with him and Adol. He asks why Myuria is even here, though Boromir snaps that he doesn't know and to continue running. Adol manages to locate an exit in the back of the dungeon, directing them there.
Back in Normal Town, the trio stop and catch their breath having got away. Adol states they can finally rest. Boromir rhetorically asks why they had to run into Myuria there of all times. Lotto doesn't know, lamenting on their bad luck. Adol wonders why they run away whenever they see her, causing Lotto and Boromir to yell at him for forgetting. Boromir then yells at Lotto why, also forgetting, with Lotto yelling back, also not remembering. They look at each other and awkwardly start to ask Adol only for him to remind them he asked first. Adol concludes they all forgot as Lotto and Boromir laugh awkwardly. He then considers asking her why, but Boromir and Lotto adamantly refuse. Adol argues it feels weird to just run away. Boromir admits that it's true, but that somehow it wouldn't matter even if they knew the truth. Lotto admits something about it bothers him. Adol dismisses the subject asking what they thought about the monsters instead. Boromir arrogantly states they were like gum compared to him. Lotto wants to agree but admits they took a lot of damage and would have died multiple times if Boromir wasn't healing them and are running low on healing items. Boromir notices his mace's durability stat is almost 0. Lotto adds the experience accumulated was too little for them, even though it is quite a lot normally. Adol agrees with their opinions.
Lotto then dismisses it, happy for the new experience. Adol agrees stating that when a game gets boring due to overcrowding, an expansion upgrade is always good for new players. Boromir admits he never really expected an upgrade. Adol suggests they go get the items they used replaced and Boromir reminds them he needs to get his mace fixed. Lotto knows of a good store and offers to take them there.
Adol and Boromir are stunned seeing the rickety store with Piri adjusting it. Lotto ignores this and urges them to go over with him.She looks over her shoulder and notices Lotto, welcoming him. She tells him to wait a minute as she fixes the sign. Lotto tells her to take her time and there's no rush. Adol and Boromir quickly understand the situation and deduce that Lotto is into that kind of girl. Boromir then notices Piri is wearing a long skirt. He lecherously drops on all fours and skitters over so he can see under skirt. He starts to see her underwear, but Lotto stomps on his face. Pirir wonders what the sound is, but Lotto says it's nothing and to continue what she's doing. Boromir yells at him asking if he's trying to kill him. Lotto feigns ignorance weakly saying he thought it was a cockroach, not Boromir. As he and Boromir fight, Piri re-opens her shop.
Lotto overhears Piri advising them to go to a larger store for more high-priced items and quickly states to just give them 500 Herbs. She asks if he already used the 500 herbs she sold him yesterday. Lotto makes the excuse of doing a lot of huinting while covering Adol's mouth, making him not able to breathe. Boromir responds asking how that could last for two days and remarks the Herbs would used up if they restored his Max HP twice, causing Lotto to punch him in the face quickly. Piri and Lotto then make the transaction. Boromir then remembers the tooth he picked up, shoves Lotto aside, and asks Piri to appraise it for him, believing it should be worth more than the teeth dropped by regular werewolves. However, because the item is not registered in the database or in the catalog, Piri doesn't recognize it and can't put a price on it. Boromir is disappointed, thinking it's just a rare item, but Myuria, appearing out of nowhere, explains that it will be worth 500 Gold once the new servers open up. Boromir gratefully thanks her and she returns the politeness, as Lotto and Adol increase their distance. Boromir quickly realizes it's Medusa, to her ire. Myuria chastises them for trying to leak test items. Boromir then tells her to stop following them, because it's so annoying. Lotto follows up asking her what they did wrong. Myuria is angrily asks if they don't remember. Lotto confirms they don't and asks again what it could have been, infuriating her even more. Myuria doesn't find it funny and is furious they forgot what they did. Boromir nervously confesses they don't remember while Lotto tries to recall, but fails. Myuria tells them it's something she doesn't want to remember, but that she'll tell them. Unfortunately, she also forgot and asks Piri what it was, though Piri doesn't know anything. Lotto and Boromir turn the tables on her saying the victims should remember. Myuria almost does, but still doesn't.
Meeting Dark Aradon Edit
Lotto and the team have been visiting Piri's shop for a few days, much to Boromir and Adol's annoyance, feeling their time is being wasted. His conversation is interrupted when Aradon arrives, to Piri's joy. Lotto is furious that his time with Piri was cut and tries to get in Aradon's face, only to see his horse, surprising him for a second. Aradon finally addresses Lotto, telling him he's being annoying, calling him a kid, and tells him to get lost. Lotto starts to snap, but just as he's about to attack Aradon, Adol deals a knockout blow to stop. He then passes Lotto off to Boromir to pummel him further. Adol politely apologizes to Aradon, telling him to go about his business. They then go off to go hunting, dragging a dizzy Lotto behind them.
Lotto is unconscious for the duration of Adol's interrogation and is abandoned by the team while they go off to hunt Aradon. While the guard debates whether to report about Adol, the guard notices Lotto who is asking for help.
Eventually, Lotto recovered and tracked down Boromir and Adol to their fight with Aradon in the forest. Just as Boromir was about to be defeated, Lotto announces he finally found them, completely unaware of their fight. He taunts rhetorically asking if they really thought they could escape him after everything they've done. Boromir is happy to see Lotto and Lotto responds he never loses sight of his prey. He jumps of the cliff, casting Fireball, and attacks Boromir, to both Boromir and Aradon's surprise. Lotto keeps pummeling Boromir explaining angrily they wouldn't be safe after beating him up like that while Boromir futilely tries to stop him. Lotto then realizes he forgot about someone looking in Aradon's direction. Aradon smiles cockily, but Lotto walks past him and stomps on Adol for causing the beating in the first place. Boromir taunts Aradon about Lotto completely ignoring him. Aradon, anfrily calling Lotto an annoying little brat, challenges Lotto for ignoring him. Lotto stops asking him what he just said, furiously, and if he's trying to piss him off more, casting a Fireball. Aradon returns the question with the same, preparing an attack. Lotto stops midway noticing Adol is not stopping him for restraining him for situations like these.
Fed up, Aradon starts summoning Sylphid to teach Lotto a lesson. Lotto then starts summoning his own, but Boromir warns him he started his incantation too late and will be blasted before he finishes. He starts to take the hit, but manages to complete his incantation, summoning Efreet to counter Sylph, since fire element has an advantage over wind element. Aradon prepares to cast another spell, but Lotto quickly jumps in and lands a cut on Aradon with his sword. Lotto reveals he's not just a mage, but has been leveling up Swordmaster. Aradon deflects the sword from Lotto's hands. He reveals Lotto is not the only one and removes his robes, showing off his armor and sword underneath.
He formally introduces himself as Dark Aradon and assumes Lotto heard of him, but Lotto admits he doesn't, further pissing off Aradon. He threatens to kill Lotto, with Lotto backing out saying he might remember. Adol, revealed to be injured but alive, answers that Dark Aradon is the one who holds the record for becoming a Master in the shortest amount of time and is a famous PK-Hunter. Adol states if he knew that from the beginning, eh would've fought with everything he had, with Boromir, also revealed to be just fine, noting Adol must have had a lot of time thinking while he was down. Aradon regrets not killing Boromir when he had the chance, since Paralysis wasn't enough. Boromir is ready for Round 2, but Adol thinks there's been a misunderstanding. Boromir asks how and Adol answers that Aradon isn't a criminal and that he hunts criminals. Boromir then asks about the body and Adol suspects it's a wanted criminal from somewhere. Lotto, unaware of the current events, asks what they are talking about. Aradon's horse arrives again startling Lotto. Aradon answers that Adol is correct and that the body is the mage with the blood-stained robes everyone's talking about. Adol asks why Aradon didn't just explain this from the very beginning since he could have. Aradon simply answers he was curious about the ability of the famed Triple Threat and rides off. As Lotto hides behind Boromir due to him hating horses, he then suddenly realizes that Aradon was the one flirting with Piri. Boromir sarcastically calls him bright as a lightbulb. Adol and Boromir inspect the body and discover the wanted man is Stanker, the guy they ran across in the Photon Dungeon, as Lotto stews about Aradon.
Revenge of The Fallen Angels Edit
Some time later, Lotto, Boromir, and Adol were walking down the street, unaware they were being watched by The Fallen Angels. Lotto is shown to be laughing as they talk, while Boromir picks his nose indifferently.
A bit later, they are approached by a pretty player asking them to help her friend who was caught in a trap. Boromir turns on his shoujo face and agrees to help, but Lotto says he should go himself, clearly uninterested. The girl starts to offer a reward, but before she can finish her sentence, Lotto swipes the money and agrees to find the trap while Adol asks how much is in the pouch. Boromir looks at them in disappointment. They follow the girl into the forest, near where Triple Threat took advantage of The Fallen Angels, but they don't recognize it. The girl changes her footing, running oddly to Lotto and Boromir, but Adol quickly picks up that it's a trap. Unfortunately, Lotto and Boromir fall into the pit. Lotto is unconscious when he lands as Boromir falls on top of him.
Lotto wakes up in the pit, Boromir noticing he's finally awake. Adol is if he's ok. Lotto answers he is and asks where they are. Adol asks if he doesn't remember and Boromir wonders if he hit his head and got amnesia. Lotto pauses asking Adol the simple-looking idiot is, angering Boromir. Adol takes it as a sign that Lotto is fine. Lotto seriously states he actually doesn't remember what happened and recalls what happened while being filled in by Adol and Boromir. Lotto is enraged they left after exchanging words. Lotto and Boromir are upset they were treated this way for no reason, but Adol rationalizes it's because they don't remember and he's sure they've done a lot of things to piss people off. Lotto then realizes they haven't done anything to escape, seeing no difficulty getting out of the hole. He then casts Teleport. Boromir tries to stop him, but Lotto assures them he'll be out in a sec and to hold on. However, Lotto collides with a magic barrier covering the hole, as Boromir predicted. preventing his escape. Asdol explains the barrier is invisible but present, keeping them in. Lotto tries blasting it with Fireball, but reflects the magic as Boromir explains it can reflect magic, raining Lotto's Fireballs around them and hitting Boromir. Lotto finds this a pain and suggests logging out. Adol responds that there's no point saying they'll only just log back into the pit anyway. Lotto then suggests that instead of waiting for a passerby, they should go offline and get help from another player.
Back in school. Jang-Gun and Woon-Suk approach a 2nd year from their school on the school roof asking him to help them remove a trap barrier. He boasts that there's nothing hard about it and that it's a pro's duty to help out newbies, clearly unaware who they are as well as their disgust with him. He initially asks for no more than 200 Gold, seeing it as being generous to newbies. Woon-Suk and Jang-Gun decide to find someone else, causing him to lower his price to 150 Gold and then 100 Gold, in desperation. He logs on, announcing himself as Moebius, but is defeated by the girls in one hit. K.C. calls down to the pit asking if they remember what they did now. Adol confesses they have really poor memories and still don't know while Boromir threatens them once they escape. K.C. makes a face taunting their escape while Gina decides to leave them in the pit a few more days to regain their senses. Lotto, seriously, tells them they are committing a criminal act for holding them in the pit this long and tells them they informed a system operator, wondering what kind of punishment they'll get. K.C. and Julie look at each other worried about the repercussions.
A little later, the system operator arrives chastising them for the indecent action. The girls apologize making no excuses. The operator explains that they're lucky it was her and not the actual person in charge or they would have been in big trouble. Lotto and Boromir are enjoying hearing them get reprimanded. The operator looks down in the pit to see if they are ok. Lotto and Boromir happily state they're fine and asked to be released. They look up to see the operator is actually Myuria, to their horror. After a few moments, Myuria commends the girls on a good job, while Boromir and Lotto object. She then leaves after conversing with the girls, leaving them in the pit. The girls then decide to call it a day and leave, leaving them alone.
Lotto sighs, accepting the fact they have to wait for a passerby after all. Adol reminds him it'd only work if the girls are not around. Lotto asks if Adol really doesn't remember who they are, to which Adol rhetorically asks if they would still be sitting here if they did. Adol repeats their names and the idol group, The Fallen Angels and suddenly recalls singers and remembers everything. He asks Lotto if he remembers about chasing Dreymon. Lotto recalled it was a guy who liked singers. He remembered he wasn't all that strong, but his hiding gave them a hard time and it was around that time they met The Fallen Angels, remembering their exploitation. Lotto laughs, remember that it was thanks to meeting them that they were able to lure him out. Lotto confesses they had no choice since there was no way the girls would help them even if they explained it to them and must have felt bad about it, even if it wasn't for real. He admits they did something despicable.
As they talk, Boromir has been digging for an exit and pops up behind the eavesdropping girls, admiring the view of their "figures." Before they could react, Boromir pushes them into the pit. He calls down in the pit checking if the girls are there. Lotto confirms they are, thanking him. K.C. apologizes for the misunderstanding and Julie says they won't hold a grudge on them anymore. However, it's all futile as Lotto and even Adol are pretty angry and beat them up.
MEETING YUREKA ARC Edit
Hunting at Terror Tower Edit
When trying to log back into the game one day, he discovers his subscription yo Lost Saga expired, which always occurs on his birthday.
As he enters the cafe, he overhears the owner, Woon-Ha, trying to save a sale by convincing an older customer of certain women he can encounter for a thrill of debauchery. He cuts into the conversation asking what in the world Woon-Ha is talking about. Woon-Ha, now noticing him, nervously pinches Jang-Gun's cheek in greeting, but he does not return the friendly gesture. Jang-Gun asks if this is a new customer trying to subscribe, which Woon-Ha confirms. Jang-Gun. quickly understanding the old man's perverse motives, warns him that there's a time and place on when to connect since it'll end really badly if his family caught him hard and stiff while surfing the net, chasing the customer away. Woon-Ha is upset at losing a sale, asking why the hell Jang-Gun arrived. He calmly answers that it's his birthday today, tossing the card to himself in the air. Woon-Ha quickly understands that he's here to re-subscribe. Jang-Gun states that it pisses him off that he always has to do it on his birthday, though doesn't know why. He asks if he can use the multi-scanner room. Woon-Ha is not sure since someone is using it earlier, but it should be empty since at least 30 minutes passed. Jang-Gun also sees the power is off and concludes it must be empty. However, when he enters the room, he sees a naked girl covering herself and getting dressed. Jang-Gun closes the door, but doesn't pay attention, knocking himself backwards from the surprise. Woon-Ha asks what in the world he's doing. Jang-Gun counters there was someone still inside. Woon-Ha is at first surprised, but then remembers the power lightbulb burned out and he forgot to replace it, exasperating Jang-Gun about his business practices.
The multi-scanner room door opens and the girl, now dressed and wearing sunglasses, emerges and gives Woon-Ha her card to renew it. Jang-Gun nervously looks at her and avoids her gaze, but she simply lowers her sunglasses to look at him and smiles. She collects her card and then leaves, saying thank you. Woon-Ha wishes her a good day and then turns to Jung-Gun asking if he still plans to use the multi-scanner. As Jang-Gun prepares, he is still perplexed why she would smile at him instead of getting mad for seeing her naked. He deduced that despite her body, she looked about his age. As he undresses, he wonders why they need to be naked to get scanned to get a multi-scan, concerned about hidden cameras. As he is scanned, he looks down and sees that he is erect. He yells trying to stop the scan midway, but it becomes completed. Jang-Gun objects and yells for it to be void. As he steps out of the scanner and back in the multi-scanner chamber, he decides to wait until he's calmed, lamenting how he has to pay for two scans, both being expensive. As he steps out, he notices he stepped on an ID card. He picks it up and wonders if the girl from dropped it. He notices it is labeled "Yureka."
After he returns home, he at first thinks no one's home, depressed at this because it's his birthday. He sees his mother's work room door open and filled with cigarette smoke. He calls out to her and tells her to air out the room sometime, noticing how dark it is too. She tells him to shut up and not bother her as she's wrapping up work. Jang-Gun asks her what day it is, hinting at his birthday. She answers it's most likely her wrap-up day, the deadline. He tries again asking her if she was forgetting something. She thinks about it and realizes she is hungry and tells him to go fix something. Giving up, Jang-Gun starts to understand why he's so messed up. Depressed again, Jang-Gun decides to spend all day on the net since it's a rest day. He is further depressed by the fact he hasn't grown even 1 cm over the last year, wondering if renewing isn't just meaningless. As he inserts the ID into the console, he hopes he'll grow over the next year and logs in.

Meeting Basara Edit
(Redirected from Yureka (Jang-Gun))
After learning about Yureka's abilities and stats, Jang-Gun went offline to visit Woon-Ha. He then asks if there was anything suspicious about her. Woon-Ha says there wasn't anything suspicious, but she did request copies of her ID card, saying she could lose one. Knowing he has a copy of the hacking program, Jang-Gun mischievously concludes that he can play with it as much as he wants.
Meeting Yureka Edit
The next day, Lotto logs back on and admires his reflection in Normal City's fountain, happy to have his own body back. He beats up a couple players making fun of him doing so and then goes off to visit Piri's shop. When he arrives, he is greeted by Adol, Boromir, and Piri, with Adol saying it's been a long time. Lotto scoffs that it wasn't that long since they saw each other in class. Boromir says they meant on the net and that Lotto slept during class. Lotto, feigning ignorance, asked what happened during his absence. Adol and Boromir lie and say there's no news and everything was the same. Lotto, knowing the truth, silently is mad they haven't told him about Yureka, initially believing they think he has no right to know. He then realizes they just don't want reveal they went to Terror Tower without him. He then suggests they should go hunting somewhere. Boromir agrees and Adol suggests trying the farthest lands, but Lotto decides to go to Terror Town, worrying them. Boromir starts to make an excuse about it being too dangerous, but Lotto dramatically reminded them of their confidence for beating every dungeon, but that they didn't even make it halfway the tower. With one final push, Boromir and Adol reluctantly agree. Lotto decides they should go now, but Boromir, tells him to wait. Lotto threateningly asks if he's scared, but Boromir admits they met a new member to their team and became good friends while he was absent. Adol is concerned their shopping is taking a while. Lotto is silently annoyed they started adding team members without him too and asks them who the new member is. Boromir notices them coming up behind Lotto. He turns around and to his great surprise sees that it's Yureka. Yureka apologizes to the group, wearing new armor and saying she had to buy more items than she thought.
She asks what was wrong, but Boromir and Adol. also confused with Lotto's behavior, play it off as nothing. Lotto can't figure out why Yureka is there when he is logged in. Adol confirms her name is Yureka after complimenting her new clothes, the name he invented himself. She asks who is behind them. Boromir introduces him as Lotto, a member of their team. Yureka stares at him with Lotto feeling nervous, but she greets him normally. Lotto then comes up with an answer. He deduces the reason she can be here with him is because she's not the same Yureka as yesterday and concludes it's the girl from the net cafe.
The team arrives in front of Terror Tower. Lotto cooly challenges the tower, though feels guilty saying that. He then pumps the team to enter the tower and they all follow.
Remembering what was done last time, Lotto uses the same magic combination and casts Fire Arrows. Lotto asks what they think and Yureka praises his strength. Adol and Boromir notices he used the same attack as Adol did. He silently states that when he knows what to do, he is better at magic than they are, eager to show them his true abilities. He then continues his act of climbing the tower to break their record of Floor 13. The team continue to climb the tower until they once again reach Floor 18. They are once again greeted by Koin, but Boromir quickly kills him, to the relief of him and Adol. Lotto rushes to the front of the door, ignoring Boromir's warnings, playing the act of them not getting their share of the loot. He is then knocked back by the Centaur's arrow, to the fear of Adol and Boromir. As Yureka goes to fight the Centaur, he quickly defeats Adol and Boromir.
As this happened, The Centaur asks if Yureka thinks she can handle him alone, claiming she was lucky last time but it won't happen today. Yureka states it will also be different for her side too. Before she can fight, Boromir's body flies and slams into the Centaur. It's revealed Lotto was never Confused, but like Adol pretended to be. He asks her what is different and why. As he drags Adol behind him, he tells he he figured out she is not the owner of the card and asks who she is. Yureka asks him if he doesn't find it funny and also who else would know besides him. She answers her name is Yureka, the name he gave her. He asks her how, though she doesn't know either, comparing to how humans can't remember when they're born. She then says she would have thought that he'd remember how. Lotto tries to remember, but due to his poor memory, deflects asking furiously if he's her father. She laughs hard asking who her mother would be. Losing his patience and annoyed with her attitude, he demands to tell her if she's going to tell him what's going on or not. She responds she'll tell him whatever he wants and that he just needs to ask the right questions.
The Centaur gets back up angrily telling them to go finish their lover's spat elsewhere. Yureka responds asking if anyone was talking to him. The Centaur angrily starts to threaten her, but is cut off by Lotto's fire, killing him, as Lotto snaps that the grownups are talking. Lotto then says to Yureka he will ask again, nicely, who she is. However, Yureka playfully repeats her name and says to not call her "Nicely." Fed up, Lotto unleashes his fire magic at her, though she easily dodges. She asks him what his problem is. Lotto decides that if she won't tell him who she is, he'll just beat it out of her. Yureka recalls that Lotto had a Napoleon Complex and the challenges him to show how tough he is. Lotto taunts her, asking if she can't handle the game though Yureka fires back that she likes the game just fine, but not the player.
Lotto fires another fireball calling her a sore loser. Using her speed, she reminds him how fast her body is instantly closing in to just a few inches from Lotto's face. Lotto is shocked, not only by her speed, but wonders how he knew how fast she is. Yureka flirts with Lotto calling him cute when he thinks hard like that. Lotto snaps and engulfs himself in flames, casting Fire Trails. Scared, Yureka warns him it's getting too hot and he'll go up like a marshmallow in a minute like that. Lotto responds that he's just getting warmed up and that she gave away who she is, claiming the mytery is solved and it's now game over. Yureka jokes about playing another game, like Parcheesi, Duck-Duck-Goose, and even being the car in Monopoly, infuriating Lotto even more.
Lotto rushes Yureka, eager to put her out of her misery. She jumps over him, taunting him to do better. Lotto simply states he'll just have to turn up the heat and ask if she feels it yet. When she lands, she exclaims her feet on fire as she lands on a floor of fire. Lotto sneers at her calling her a cat on a hot tin roof, as his feet and legs stay in flames. He explains that his spell, Fire Trails, leaves a wake of flames in the steps of the spellcaster without hurting the caster. He then chases after her, taunting her incredible speed and calling her kitty condescendingly. Frightened, Yureka run away from Lotto and tries to point out Adol and Boromir will also die while the tower goes up. Lotto dismissively says they'll just take one for the team and that her speed won't help her when the whole tower is burning. With a psychotic look, he tells "kitty-cat" is running out of places to hide, further frightening her.
While chasing her, Yureka is able to lose Lotto and hides. Lotto keeps looking for her while enjoying the spell. He calls out for her, but she refuses, following up that because he saw her stats, he should know that someone with a resistance factor as a high as hers barely takes damage from low-level magic like this. Following her voice, Lotto admits he knows but so long as she still feels the pain of the flames, he'll keep dishing it out. He calls out for her again, but this time she asks him to turn off the fire first. He refuses as he continues to follow her voice. She continues to beg him to turn it off, but he refuses every time, continuing to track her down. He finally locates her hiding spot and asks her to give him one good reason, especially after he found her. He finds her huddled against a pillar, crying and saying it hurts. After seeing her this terrified and in pain, he turns off the fires. He tells her it's all starting to make sense now and concludes she's not human.
Yureka remains quiet. Lotto continues explaining that the game doesn't simulate different kinds of pain and that players only feel an electric tingle, similar to how it feels when a person's foot is asleep, otherwise no one would play more than once; no one wants really feel what it's like to be torn apart by werewolves. He goes on to say he she's different in that even if she's not getting hurt by the flames, she can still feel them burn and feels the pain, concluding she's not a human, but an NPC; a program. Trying again, he asks. who she is.
Drying her tears, Yureka repeats her name. Lotto is about to attack her again, but she insists he had it right and that it really is her name. Lotto, doesn't believe her until he remembers introducing himself as Yureka from before and that she was the voice in his head. Yureka asks if it even matters since everyone are just programs in the game. Lotto admits this is true, until he realizes she was changing the subject. They both hear a voice telling them to play nice.
They hear a voice that tells them to play nice. Yureka argues that's no fun, though Lotto is curious that she heard it too. Boromir reveals himself behind the pillar asking if she's deaf, surprising them both. Boromir continues wondering why she couldn't hear him when he was standing so close, suspecting something strange was going on. Yureka and Lotto are worried he overheard the truth, but Boromir accuses that they know each other because they are going out. Boromir cries at Yureka claiming they could have made beautiful music, not understanding what she sees in Lotto. Adol, arriving, calms him down. Lotto silently is relieved that he can fool Boromir but is worried how long he can keep it from Adol because of how sharp he is. Adol also admits there was something strange about Yureka and Lotto, but couldn't put his finger on it. Lotto dismisses his claim, telling to think whatever he wants, asking how much he heard. Adol admits the last thing he remembers was Lotto beating him, calling him a midget in shorts. Boromir decides that now that their "torrid affair" is out in the open, they should continue, Adol still confused about the situation. Boromir then accuses her of telling Loto about beating Terror Tower. Yureka lies again saying she did and apologizes. Lotto, meanwhile, still wonders what she is and if she even knows. He especially wants to know what she's doing here.
Lotto and Yureka take part in the doubles tournament, to win Excalibur. They enter as a team encountering Rapha and John, her Guardian, who also participate in the tournement and it seems like hatred at the first sight. Entering the tournement, first they must fight against orge, last boss of Terror Tower and Lich, an even stronger boss. Yureka defeats them both but collapses, it seems Lotto did something to her, casting the spell beserk on her. The main tournement is with 8 team. In the first round, they face against Row and his new partner Orugazi, a witch. In the second round against Rapha and her Guardian John. They go to the final against Aradon and Alpha, Lotto and Aradon are about to finish their fight, a demon appears and attacks them both and declare that the demon armee will attack in a week. So the tournement was to recruit strong players to defeat the demon king.

Adol (Woon-Suk) Edit
One of Lotto's closest friends and the scrapper of the group. Adol is something of the rational one of the team and is normally calm and level-headed. However, even his patience with Boromir and Lotto has its limits. His anger is usually shown when his normally closed eyes are open and is surrounded by an intimidating aura. When this happens, he is not afraid to resort to violence in the game or the real world. Like Lotto, he is not without a mean streak of his own, enjoying the thrill of battle.
Boromir (Kwan-Su) Edit
One of Lotto's closest friends and the healer of the group. Despite their friendship, they are constantly at odds because of Boromir's impulsiveness and Lotto's short temper. However, because of Boromir's lecherous and self-absorbed personality, they are compatible friends that have faith in each other in the game. He is also one of the two people Jang-Gun can be his game-obsessed self around in the real world, not worried about what he may think. Boromir is very cowardly when situations turn serious, but even then he will not abandon his friends, making him a reliable comrade-in-arms.
Lotto holds a low opinion of Rowe, seeing him more as a hindrance than a friend. When they first met, he saw Rowe's attempt at helping as stealing his experience instead.
Jang-Gun's little sister. They have a normal sibling relationship, though Jang-Gun can be rough. Jang-Gun disapproves of Jang-Mi talking to guys on chat rooms late at night and scolded her for talking back about their internet usage despite the fact she uses her brother's computer. Nevertheless, they respect each other's hobbies and are generally kind to each other.
Myuria, nicknamed by Triple Threat as Medusa, is one of the very few people Lotto fears. However, he can't remember the reason he fears her.
Piri is an NPC shopkeeper of a small item shop selling basic items. Lotto has a one-sided crush on her due to his preference of older women. He is also very protective of her, shielding her from Boromir's lecherous behavior. He also gets easily jealous when she pays more attention to Aradon than him.
Dark Aradon Edit
Lotto and Aradon are chief rivals and generally do not like each other due to their many differences. Their personalities also clash causing them to get into arguments very quickly and itching to fight and find out once and for all who was the better fighter. Both Lotto and Aradon believe the other is beneath them in terms of ability, despite never finishing a match or defeating one another.
