The Faraway Paladin Episode 5 Spoilers
In episode 4, Gus uses his sorcery to destroy the body of Stagnate, not realizing that he was well-prepared for an attack of that sort. While the trio discusses what just happened with Will, the God of the undead attacks them from behind. They immediately collapse on the spot, and the protagonist can’t help but blame himself for their suffering.
Later, when they are conscious again, he confesses that he kept the vague memories of his past life a secret and calls himself unworthy of the love that they gave him. However, Mary is quick to take things in her control and tell Will that it was the attack by Stagnate was just a price for the mistakes they had made in the past, and he can’t blame himself for it. After asking for their permission, Will prays for a while then goes to face the God of the undead on his own.
When he tests the young man with his army of skeletons, the protagonist fights valiantly and impresses Stagnate to the point that he offers to make him the General of his army and free him from the fear of death so that he can live with his undead guardians happily. He offers Will his blood to drink as an acceptance of the offer. When the protagonist comes closer to the God of the undead, he uses the opportunity to strike him with his sword, but before he can hit him with a fatal blow, a snake controlled by Stagnate bites him.
When he opens his eyes, he finds himself in a dream world where he meets the Goddess of Light, who agrees to become his Guardian angel and grants him her powers. As soon as he opens his eyes, Stagnate can feel the change in his powers, and the two begin a fight to the death. In episode 5, despite being dominated earlier in their battle, Will will manage to defeat the God of the dead with the blessing of his Guardian angel.
