The Beginnings of The Fool

In the beginning, Zhou Mingrui, an ordinary man from our world, finds himself in the body of Klein Moretti, a history graduate. His new world is governed by supernatural forces and a hierarchy of powers known as Sequences. Klein’s journey as a Beyonder starts innocuously as a Seer (Sequence 9) but is laced with inevitable greatness as he assumes the pseudonym 'The Fool' for his tarot club.

Klein Moretti: The Half-Lord of Mysteries

Klein's elevation to Half-Lord of Mysteries is marked by his triumph over the inevitable corruption that plagues high-level Beyonders. Here, he is a benefactor, a protector, but also a force to be reckoned with:

  • Scholar of Yore (Sequence 3): Embracing history and its profound lessons, Klein sets the stage for miracles.
  • Miracle Invoker (Sequence 2): Fulfilling wishes and performing the miraculous.
  • Attendant of Mysteries (Sequence 1): Serving the mysteries themselves, Klein prepares for his ultimate transformation.

The Path to Godhood

As a Fool, Klein’s ultimate goal looms over him — claiming godhood and becoming the Sequence 0: the true Lord of Mysteries. His journey is filled with mystical challenges, rigorous self-control, and an unwavering commitment to his principles.

His metamorphosis from a transmigrated soul into a semi-deity encapsulates the dense themes of the novel: the intertwining fates, paradoxes of power, and the relentless pursuit of higher truths.

Klein stands not only as a central character of Lord of Mysteries but as a symbol of transformative progression, embodying the intricate dance between man and the divine, order and chaos, reality and illusion.

As The Fool's journey continues, it's clear that this is a dance that spans the expanse of time and the depths of the soul, promising an evolution that readers will follow with bated breath.
