The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 188
Chapter 188: Clone
Wang Hao wasted no time as he started to mark the treasure as his own. Since he cannot let out any energy yet, he manually cut his own finger to make a drop of blood. He dripped it on the ring, who started sucking it greedily.
This was blood imprinting, the way of marking an object as your own with your blood. Actually, using your own essence can be as just effective as the blood.
What the practitioner wants to use for imprinting depends on them. In Wang Hao’s case, he can only use his blood to imprint it.
Wang Hao immediately felt a connection with the ring after he became its owner. He also managed to discover what the true nature of the treasure really was. Upon discovering it, Wang Hao laughed in his mind, realizing that he made it big today!
“Is there a way for us to go back now Wang Hao?” Roxy’s anxious question reached Wang Hao’s ears. Everyone in the ship aside from Jieshu, Huo Huangdi and Fang Anwei were worried. This was normal, since not all of them were monster like Jieshu.
Wang Hao gave Roxy a reassuring nod as he replied,
“Yes, I can bring you all back already.”
“Huhuhuhu!” Roxy hugged Wang Hao, clearly relieved that her plights were now about to end.
Out of all the stranded people here, Roxy knew that her chance of surviving will be low. She was sure that her proximity with Wang Hao was the one that kept her alive today.
Wang Hao’s imposing aura, even though it was hidden, still managed to scare of powerful creatures in the Dreamworld. Even Roxy could not believe that a High Grade Divine Beast Bloodline could do such thing.
And with Huo Huangdi and Jieshu accompanying Wang Hao, any dangerous creatures were further scared off by their combined auras. Even though these three might be qualitatively weaker than the creatures here in the Underworld, their auras were enough to deter even the strongest of them.
After all, most of the creatures here in the Dreamworld were not that wise. They were easily scared off by the auras of Wang Hao, Huo Huangdi, Jieshu and Fang Anwei. As for the intelligent ones, they chose to not appear, knowing that they cannot afford to meddle with residents form the Underworld, especially those with obviously high status.
This protection might be good, but Roxy knew how unpredictable the Dreamworld was. It may be safe today, but tomorrow, disasters might happen, and nothing from them can stop those disasters from killing them.
It will be better to leave the Dreamworld as fast as possible to avoid complications.
Roxy then asked Wang Hao,
“Do you need something from us to activate it?”
Wang Hao nodded, with his face scrunched in a frowning expression. He clicked his teeth as he said,
“This ring can set three locations on itself. Once a location has been set, the practitioner can go there everytime he/she wanted, as long as they have the energy required for the transportation. As of now, there are two locations set already, the Dreamworld and the Underworld.”
“Does that mean you can go to Dreamworld and Underworld everytime you wanted it? That sounds broken!” Fang Anwei’s dissatisfied complaints could be heard. It was no surprise hearing that from her. It was obvious she was still angry when the ring ignored her all this time.
“Yeah, but I need massive amounts of energy to do that. I cannot just use it whenever I wanted. You can say this can be a trump card of mine” Wang Hao replied.
He then wore the ring like a bracelet on his right arm as he said,
“Now that we are all set, let’s just wait for other survivors like us and then we will leave already.”
“I think we do not need to wait for the others, since they were all dead already.” Huo Huangdi said.
An uncomfortable silence passed by which was broken by Wang Hao hissing at Huo Huangdi.
“And how the hell did you know that?”
“I have my ways.” Huo Huangdi mysteriously replied. He looked at Jieshu, who then said,
“With my ways, I also know that aside from us, nobody else from the trial participants survived.”
Wang Hao gave a tired sigh as he realized that what Huo Huangdi and Jieshu said were true. Aside from them, everyone else had been wiped out.
Wang Hao then shook his head when he felt someone talking to him in his mind.
“Hello master Wang Hao. I am Little Bai, in your service!” The ring sounded like an immature boy. It sounded young, yet lively too. Of course, it also sounded irritating. “What do you want me to do?” Little Bai sounded excited, since it was his first time talking. “I’ll make sure to not let you down!”
“Well, let me ask you some questions first.” Wang Hao then asked Little Bai about its personal life. To Wang Hao’s confusion, Little Bai said that aside for his like of lovely women, he knew nothing else about himself. He also said that he only gained full rational thoughts after Wang Hao imprinted him.
The Little Bai that everyone saw earlier was only running on its instincts.
“….” Since Wang Hao already received an info about the uses of the ring, he asked Little Bai about something really important.
“What is my physical body doing here?” The ring also had a spatial pocket inside it, and there Wang Hao saw his physical body, which should have been destroyed earlier, appearing here, fresh and looking new.
This made Wang Hao confused since he saw his physical body getting destroyed earlier. Wang Hao actually had no problems with his physical body being destroyed. He was fine to exist even in just a soul form since his soul was already powerful.
And if he ever wanted a body, he can just repossess a clone of his body that he had stored on his Space-Time Gyroscope.
Due to Wang Hao’s unique bloodline, he had no way to cultivate. That cultivation includes his physical body. That means he cannot strengthen his body in any ways. His body did not get any stronger because he could not cultivate.
That means that from the start of his life until now, his body was of a mortal one. It has the same fragility as a mortal’s and it can be easily damaged from any attacks. That was the consequence of him being the monarch of energy.
Only Wang Hao’s energy absorption and energy manipulation saved him from dying from his comparatively weak body.
Because of his sealed memories, Wang Hao does not know how he did it, but he managed to create 5 clones of his body. These clones were the clones of his mortal body. Since his body was that of a mortal and it had no cultivation at all, cloning it was a piece of cake.
His clones were also special, since all of them were at the blank states. That means each body was just an empty husk, with no thoughts at all. Wang Hao of course did not wipe out any of the souls of the clones. They just came out soulless from his cloning process, which he still could not remember due to his memories.
As for its bloodline abilities, the clones have none. Wang Hao had no worries though, since he knew that the real source of a bloodline comes from the soul. As long as his soul was alive and it was not exterminated, he will still have all the power of his bloodline in his soul body.
But from what Wang Hao knew, cloning even just one body was already way too difficult. As for how he pulled it off, he does not know since his memories were sealed. The only thing he can remember was him feeling smug after procuring 5 clone bodies.
As for what these bodies are for, it was for Wang Hao’s insurance.
Wang Hao might have thought before that his body was so weak that it might get destroyed in one of his adventures. It was maybe at those moments that Wang Hao decided to create clones. The role of a clone was simple.
Once Wang Hao’s body was destroyed, his soul which was still intact due to his powerful soul energy, will then occupy one of the clone body. Since it was just a copy of his body, Wang Hao will have no problem occupying it.
The clone might have no bloodline, but his soul still had it. Once his soul merges with his clone body, his bloodline will then start re-integrating with his body, making his bloodline re-emerge as a part of the physical world.
That means Wang Hao can still exist in the Material Universe as long as he had a clone body.
That was the reason why Wang Hao willingly came to the Underworld. After getting a win in the trial, he can just possess a clone and go back as a person with a body in Planet Thrae.
That’s a great plan in his opinion.
But that had been derailed due to the backlash he received earlier.
Aside from its space-time abilities, his access to the spatial pocket in the Space-Time Gyroscope was also blocked by the backlash. That means he cannot possess any of his clone bodies, because they were all stored on his Space-Time Gyroscope.
Since he does not know when the backlash will be removed, Wang Hao began thinking of some ways to create a body.
His thoughts were stirred though when he saw a body of his appearing in the spatial pocket of Little Bai. With his newly returned energy sensing, Wang Hao was sure this body was just created minutes earlier.
Wang Hao gave Little Bai a level stare as he waited for his answer.
Little Bai scratched his head as he replied,
“Master it was actually like this….”
