"You guys all have 'Lucid Adventure' accounts right? Login tonight! I will write my will in there"
Han Gun-Jae, known as Sword Master, Alpaca Man and Novelist Han in Lucid Adventure, was the Chairman of Giga Group, The Creator and Absolute God of Lucid Adventure. He was the father of Han Sung-Gong, Han Sung-Joo and Han Sung-Hyun as well as the paternal grandfather of Han Gun-Ho, Han Soo-Ah, Han Gun-Soo and Han Gun-Woo. After creating the game, Han Gun-Jae's Divine character came to be known as Sword Master. To help him enjoy the world of Lucid Adventure, Han Gun-Jae split his soul into 2 other characters, Alpaca Man and Novelist Han.
As Alpaca Man, Han Gun-Jae was a member of Keynes Party that took part in a former iteration of the Combat Tournament. Keynes Party served as a minor antagonist during the Leaf Dungeon Arc. Alpaca Man later joined Bamboo Spear Man's Party and competed in the last ever Combat Tournament. His team was eventually knocked out in the Siege Round by Team Light.
As Novelist Han, Han Gun-Jae travelled around the Lucid Adventure world to learn about it from a more grounded perspective. He used the ideas and experiences he acquired during his journey to write a novel he titled "Lucid Adventure". On his travels he took on Sora as an apprentice and trained her for some time. He also gave Hardcore Leveling Warrior 500+ Strength stat and the Divine Skill, Lacerate (節), skill as rewards for completing a quest.
In the real world, Han Gun-Jae contracted an unknown illness. He gathered his family in the hospital telling them to log into Lucid Adventure as he will be leaving his will online. Soon after that, he fell into a coma, but his consciousness remained online in Lucid Adventure.
In the game, he was constantly chased by the Giga, who were trying to capture him in order to control Lucid Adventure completely. After finally meeting Han Sung-Gong in the game, Han Gun-Jae's 2 other avatars were reabsorbed into his Sword Master form as he attempted to remove his son from the game. Unfortunately, he was defeated by his eldest son. After engaging Han Sung-Gong in Lucid Adventure, the rest of his power was used up and he he was forced to log-out and his life is was hanging on by a thread. He remained in The Subconscious World and aided Hardcore Leveling Warrior in returning Lucid Adventure after he was killed by the Contractor.
After the conclusion of the PvP Round, he used the last bit of his power to see Han Gun-Woo in Lucid Adventure, encouraging him one final time before finally passing away.
His will that was broadcast all over the world upon his death, stated that whoever reached the end of the game will inherit the position of Giga Chairman. This lead to multiple people vying for control of the game.

The prize money for achieving this goal is 10% of the Unicorn Corporation's sales for one month.
