He had been in the clan for some time. However, he could not find a better way to increase his attribute points at a faster pace other than the most primitive way which was to nourish it with his Soul Energy.
Garen quickly finished the meats before going back to the class. The content of the Arcane Art Courses was not much as it required the dragon whelps to train on their own most of the time.
Hence, the class was dismissed rather quickly.
After Garen bade goodbye to Safour, he went towards the Combat Course. Coincidentally, both courses did not clash against one another as one was in the morning whereas the other was during the afternoon.
The Combat Courses was much more lively than Arcane Art Course. Although it was one of more than ten Combat Courses, it already had at least twenty dragon whelps.
Similarly, the class was held inside a cold and windy ice valley. There was a huge disc-shaped platform at the center. The platform was also known as the Battle Arena and it was surrounded by many stools that could be used for resting. There were also a few dragon caves which had unknown purposes. These caves had many icy blue stalagmites by the entrances and they had been used as decorations by the White Dragons as they gave off blue illumination. These stalagmites were very valuable towards the humans as they contained nourishment that could enhance their bodies. This was because it had fused with the dragon’s aura for a long period of time.
Garen mixed himself among a few Dragon Whelps as he flew into the ice valley in low profile. He looked around and realized that the teacher had yet to arrive. However, there were quite a number of Dragon Whelps who had already arrived. Some of them were flying and fooling around in a corner while some were sitting quietly as they ate with their heads down. There were also some chattering among themselves in groups.
“Hey Garen!” A light blue-scaled Dragon Whelp flew over and greeted him.
“Leona? Is there anything you need?” Garen gave her a cold shoulder.
“Can’t I find you to play together if nothing is going on?” Dragon Whelp Leona said unhappily. “Come and see the Snow Dragon I’ve built!”
She then happily pointed at the Snow Dragon nearby. However, Garen viewed it as a carrot no matter how he looked at it.
“Ugly…” He commented on it casually.
“What do you mean ugly!?” Leona was unsatisfied with his comment.
“It is ugly. I never argue with other dragons,” Garen said casually as he went to his seat.
There were three Dragon Whelps pushing and yelling at a weak and small Dragon Whelp near his seat.
Garen ignored them as he sat down. The stools and tables here were mimicked from the humans. Although the designs were simple, it was solidly built.
It was not the first time he saw Dragon Whelps bullying other Dragon Whelps. However, as long as he was not involved in it, he would not bother speaking to these kids. These Dragon Whelps did not dare mess with him because of his firm muscles and lustrous scales. It was the reason why he had a peaceful life thus far.
Leona flew towards him and sat in front of him as he sat down. They had been designated as partners in the Combat Course as Garen was obviously the best in terms of physical attributes during the Combat Course’s trial. It was the higher up’s intention to train Leona together with Garen as Leona was, in fact, the daughter of the clan’s Elder Dragon. Hence, it was normal for her to have special privileges.
Despite Garen wanting to ignore this little girl, he had to put up a perfunctory act with her as he did not dare be hostile towards her.
“Garen, do you know? Sister Ola is about to have sex with Uncle Cartel,” Leona came over and whispered to Garen.
“…” Garen stared at her speechlessly. “What are you trying to say?”
It was a given that a little female Dragon Whelp did not know what embarrassment was as this was a concept applicable only towards the humans. It was nothing out of the norm for the White Dragon Clan which encourages breeding.
“I plan to go and peek on them. Do you want to join me?” She said furtively.
“No.” Garen rejected her immediately. “I have a lot of things to do. There’s also work and practices from the Arcane Art Courses.”
“Aren’t you curious?” Leona whispered.
“Not even the slightest,” Garen urged Leona to turned her head back to the front as the teenage dragon teacher was about to start his lecture. The instructors here were all part-timers hired at the last second. They were all young dragons that had experienced fighting against powerful foes as each of them had records of killing Level Seven creatures.
The lecture had commenced. There were not a lot of theories and explanation as many of the White Dragon’s battle techniques were inherited. As long as the Dragon Whelps were able to tap into it and practice the techniques, they would soon be able to use them naturally.
The Dragon Clan was born with a powerful body. When matured, their strength and speed would be equivalent to the human’s Level Seven Great Knight. One would be known as the White Silver at that level. Rumor had it that the White Silver Knights in the human tribe possessed a high prestige, where they would able to perform guardian duties to an Earl in his territories.
Hence, what the dragon whelps required to learn was how to utilize their already powerful physical characteristics. Furthermore, one of the main things the Dragon Whelps needed to master was a technique called Draconic Aura.
The Draconic Aura was a natural skill of the Dragon Clan where it could oppress the others. Its potency would naturally increase as the dragons aged. However, the Dragon Clan had invented a training method for the Draconic Aura to further enhance its effectiveness. It was similar to a human training their body and techniques in order to achieve the life force of a Knight.
The class started quickly and similarly to the Arcane Art Class where they were only teaching the foundation, the courses here were all basic foundation syllables.
However, there was an old White Dragon in silver armor on the platform. Although its wing looked rather relaxed, the dragon’s gaze gave off a powerful coercion. That was a Draconic Aura which was much stronger than the average adult dragon.
As the Dragon Whelps sat down and turned down their volume, he started speaking.
“I am Baesman. I believe everyone here knows me since you’ve been here for some time. However, today is different as I will officially pass down the techniques of master Draconic Aura. I will also officially announce the overall job description, the dates, and the details of your missions.”
His mighty voice in Draconic Language kept reverberating within the ice valley.
“The Draconic Aura Techniques!” Garen was excited as he could finally get in touch with the world’s skill system. Despite the Arcane Arts Courses teaching them the basics and knowledge of Spellcraft, Arcane Technique, and the effects of different types of Spellcraft, they had not taught him the training methods. On the other hand, the Combat Courses was earlier in this aspect.
He was not the only one that was excited as the other Dragon Whelps felt the same as well.
Leona was the only one that had uninterest written all over her face. It seemed that she had known of such a thing and had learned it a long time ago.
Garen stared at her and found out the reason why this person had such tremendous strength during basic training. He was nowhere near this female Dragon Whelp’s strength even though he had added points into his strength attribute.
The Dragon Whelps in the course started buzzing among themselves.
Baesman, who was on the platform roared loudly. The intense dragon roar’s reverberation turned into shockwaves as it shocked the Dragon Whelps to the point where they utterly routed. Some of them were so scared that their heads were tilted on the ground and they lost all the strength in their limbs.
“I, Baesman Raghasa Rossavizi… hate living beings making a ruckus in front of me!” The instructor started to move its wings aggressively as he screeched. A frightening sensation of coercion was released from his body. It was similar to being pressured by the atmosphere as the Dragon Whelps did not dare to speak due to the coercion.
Garen was shocked that he was under its effect as he could not breathe properly. He was ecstatic as the skill system was completely new to him.
However, he realized that Leona, who was sitting in front of him had given off a faint pressure to neutralize the majority of the Draconic Aura’s pressure.
There were a few other Dragon Whelps among the rest who gave off the same Draconic Aura similar to Leona’s. The only difference was its strength.
Garen held himself together with brute force to prevent himself from falling down to the snowy ground.
The surrounding became quiet.
Then, the dragon instructor continued its lecture.
“The theory behind the Draconic Aura practice is very simple. What we need to do is simply feel the Draconic Aura that we release naturally. Then, we will try to grasp it and ultimately control it so that we can use it freely as a weapon whenever we want.”
The dragon instructor moved its heavy body around as it walked, giving off a thumping noise with each step he took.
“This weapon will follow you forever! It will remain within your skeletons even after death. Your skeletons will carry along the Draconic Aura so that low-level beings will not be able to get close to you! This is the nobility that we dragons are born with!” The dragon instructor said excitedly as he raised his heads up like a snake.
“You can use the Draconic Aura for other reasons rather than just being a weapon. We can keep it within us and use it as a tool to enhance our physical bodies. It will make us stronger and tougher! Our scales will become more solid and we will have sharper claws.”
“Now, I will introduce you to the discovery of Draconic Aura.”
Baesman then started to explain the existence of the Draconic Aura.
The Dragon Clan was indeed a powerful tribe.
This was the first impression Garen had after listening to the lecture.
The Draconic Aura was actually a natural and powerful Energy Field produced by the Dragon Clan. The dragons were able to produce an external Energy Field that could mentally oppress living beings at all times.
All of this originated from the Dragon Heart’s heartbeat. The Dragon’s Heart was extremely powerful as its rhythm required the movement of numerous myocardium. These muscular heart tissues contained many little beings that gave off electric excitation. They gathered together to form a powerful electricity which ultimately caused electric excitation from the remaining body’s muscles. This energy would naturally spread out and influence the natural surrounding. This was the basic theory behind the Draconic Aura.
Naturally, there were other complicated processes involved, but the most important thing was the electricity within the Dragon’s Heart as it was the leading source of energy.
Instead of having a brain, dragons had Dragon Crystals. The Dragon Crystal and Dragon’s Heart were located in the brain and body respectively. These two were the basic organs that maintained a huge dragon’s physiological activities. Naturally, the electricity produced from a Dragon’s Heart would be extremely powerful as it was the powerhouse of the dragon’s huge body.
Learning the basic of Draconic Aura was not the only main focus of the Combat Course. They also had to learn the anatomy of a dragon and the methods to quickly kill a giant dragon. Furthermore, they had to learn how to kill off a powerful human as well as normal humans who were the main enemies of the White Dragon Clan.
Although the syllables of the anatomy lessons were just scratching the surface, it was detailed enough that there was mention about the dragon’s muscles and fibers.
Garen managed to learn in detail without using his powerful Soul Ring. He was able to quickly understand the contents with his body’s high intelligence. He had seventeen intelligent points the moment he was born. The source of this development was his powerful soul and the nourishment he obtained while he was inside the egg.
The discovery of Draconic Aura was simpler than the rest as instructor Baesman taught a simple technique.
All one required to do was to push the snowflakes away and avoid them from landing on one’s body.
In order to achieve this, all he required to do was to follow the prescribed imagination process. When the mind produced a ripple, he then had to focus and imagine that there was nothing above his head. In other words, it was basically imagination and concentration. All he had to do was to discover and activate it through a special process as the Draconic Aura was an innate skill to all dragons.
