Continuing in chapter 148 of Black Clover, we get a backstory explanation chapter on the Eye Of the Midnight Sun Licht. We go back to a time long ago when Licht got his Grimoire and was lucky enough to have a 4 leaf clover one compared to the usual 3 leaf clover Grimoire. Licht was also a Sword Magic user which explains his light swords from the fight against the Wizard King.
We learn that Licht was a bit of an outcast, despite being in possession of a 4 leaf Grimoire, but he didn’t mind. We also learn that humans are planning to attack the Elfs, as the humans are starting to develop stronger magic, despite the fact that the Elfs have helped them in the past.
Licht one day encounters a Wind Magic user who can’t really control her and goes to save her. He also encounters another person, a young man who is the big brother of the girl with the magic.
We learn that the young man also has a 4 leaf Grimoire just like Licht. The 3 become friends and enjoy their days together and experiencing each others’ magic in day-to-day life.
The young man starts to go public about unifying humans and Elfs together in an alliance of sorts to learn from each other.
Licht eventually forms an intimate relationship with the girl and she becomes pregnant with his child, and they get married with smiles on their faces, but then a magic circle appears above and light swords come raining down on the people and darkness ensues, and we see Licht carrying his now dead bride through the flames.
We then see through the eyes of someone who we do not know, waking up in Licht’s body but now with marks on his face and head.
It is apparent that somehow a reincarnation magic has happened, but when this person’s consciousness has passed into Licht’s body he sees a Grimoire but realises it wont work with him, and goes and gets a new one – a 4 leaf one – and we cut back to see him state he will kill the humans.
