Riftan Calypse, the novel's male lead under the oak tree, is the lowly knight who abandoned his wife on the night of their marriage. Is this the proper description? The Riftan we know is a softie captivated by his wife's love.
Riftan Calypse, a common-born knight that mastered swordsmanship, slayer of the red dragon, and husband of the daughter of the house of Croix, Maximilian Croix.
It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say Riftan was a fierce man with immense power; however, all his uncompromising attitude melts away when Maxi is involved.
Here are some sweetest scenes that uncover the real personality behind the greatest slayer and the best commander of knights.
The First Talk After 3 Years
Through chapters 1-4, we see Maxi tense and upset about not knowing better. The husband and wife started with a rough patch; the monsters' attack didn't leave time for them to bond.
All the fans are thankful for the scene at the inn that showed the power of communication.
The scene allowed the husband and wife of three years to talk and clear up the misunderstandings. We got all the healthy communication served by the caring husband.
A Husband And Wife…. And Ruth?
Who dares disturb a husband fangirling over his wife in a barn filled with snoring knights?
It's the amazing magician Ruth, the man that can make the slayer of great dragon act like a spoiled little boy.
What sparked this jealousy? Just Ruth gifting a magic stone to the lady for warmth.
Have you ever seen a kid with his absolute favorite toy?
Yup.. we don't see a difference either.
Can't Look Away
If you ask the knights what the scariest monster they have encountered is. They will probably tell you about the time Riftan blushes when he looks at his wife.
According to the brave knights, “ we rather fight with the devil.”
Who raised the standards for men that high? The only correct answer is: under the oak tree Riftan Calylpse.
He makes sure Maxi eats well and stays comfortable, which is peak cute behavior. However, he might get distracted by her beauty very often. The look guarantees a steamy scene ahead.
The Small Gestures
In a long-term commitment like marriage, it's the tiny unconscious venture that hugely impacts people's hearts.
Riftan Calypse, the man, hand-picked flowers for his wife even during a thunderstorm. We thanked the rain for this scene.
If it were me… I would've cried the way Maxi did.
Fanning The Fire
Under the oak tree has only displayed affectionate and considerate partners. Everyone needs each other's assurance.
When we see the exquisite art of Riftan, we know manhwa is about to get super serious and steamy.
Tied By Lips
Who ranks as the strongest male mc in romance manhwa?
The answer is simple, under the oak tree Riftan Calypse.
Who controls Riftan Calypse?
The Manly Rose
After the lady of Anatol took charge of the castle, the knights became manlier. By smelling great.
The rose scent is not only appreciated but loved. You can ask Riftan to confirm this fact.
Even if this chapter didn't make your heart flutter, it made your heart skip a beat without any doubts.
Being the protector of Anatol and being a great commander may not be a full-time job but tasing your cute wife?
That's a full-time duty.
Chapter 34 was aesthetically pleasing, and the fan service was unmatched. Unfortunately, this was the end of season one under the oak tree.
Hard To Let Go
The most challenging part of leaving Anatol for Riftan is staying away from his wife, but what is the best part of leaving for battle? Probably the way your wife worried about you and bought an ornament for a blessing and safe journey.
It took great courage from Maxi to gift Riftan the ornament, but thanks to it all, we attained marvellous artwork of Riftan blushing ear to ear.
Papa Wolf Riftan
Seeing someone sulk because a worried wife is captivated by adorable kittens. He can share anything in the world but can't share Maxi's attention with kittens.
Ruth seems to get on Riftans nerves naturally but seeing Maxi and Ruth connect over the topic of magic fans the fire.
Riftan's feelings get the best of him. Does his wife prefer studious men like Ruth to a merchant like him?
It's the cutest scene of chapter 50 because my reaction would've been the same hearing a confession like "men who are dependable, chivalrous and good at riding horses….. that's the kind of man I like" from adorable Maxi.
With this cute panel, let's hope the manhwa keeps updating soon! Under the oak tree has quickly become an irresistible manhwa with qualities everyone craves in a male lead.
