The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 302
Chapter 302: Busted Quickly
The divine beast that Illusion Fang Lin was talking about was the Rooster Form of the Twelve Essences Martial Arts, the Celestial Phoenix.
Out of all the twelve forms, the Celestial Phoenix was the 3rd strongest, just behind the Rainbow Dragon and the Duality Divine Beast.
From that statement, once can already say that this form was already strong.
But Illusion Fang Lin knew that the Celestial Phoenix was more than that.
Fang Lin’s Second Master said that the Celestial Phoenix should actually be considered a Godly Divine Beast, since its abilities were actually as powerful as a Godly Divine Beast.
“Then why is the Celestial Phoenix considered a Divine Beast?” Fang Lin asked in confusion when he talked to his Second Master in the tablet before. “From what you said, the Celestial Phoenix looks to be on par with the Rainbow Dragon.”
There was a long pause before the Second Master opened his mouth.
“It was because the Celestial Phoenix was formerly a Godly Divine Beast. But then one day, a powerful individual appeared and used a bloodline seal on the Celestial Phoenix.”
“A bloodline seal?” Fang Lin shivered, as his body felt an instinctive fear of that word.
“That bloodline seal demoted the bloodline of the Celestial Phoenix to just half-step Godly Divine Beast. You know what that means right?”
“Yes I know.” Fang Lin replied at that time.
That bloodline seal reduced the grade of the Celestial Phoenix’s bloodline from Godly Divine Beast to just half-step Divine Beast.
The seal did not reduce the abilities or the power of the Celestial Phoenix.
The Celestial Phoenix could still use its abilities that was on par with the abilities of a Godly Divine Beast.
But because its bloodline was now just half-step Godly Divine Beast, the Celestial Phoenix can be affected by the bloodline suppression by Godly Divine Beasts.
If it was before, the Celestial Phoenix can ignore the bloodline suppression of the Godly Divine Beasts since it was also a Godly Divine Beast.
But that bloodline seal demoted its bloodline grade a little, making the Celestial Phoenix similar to the Divine Beasts on the fact that they can be both suppressed by the Godly Divine Beasts.
In short, the power of a Celestial Phoenix was of a Godly Divine Beast when it faces anything that was not a Godly Divine Beast.
In front of a Godly Divine Beast however, the Celestial Phoenix’s power will be slightly weakened.
That means Fang Lin will able to happily use the Celestial Phoenix Form to torment non-Godly Divine Beasts.(Spoken like a true master)
This weird mix of Godly Divine Beast Power and half-step Godly Divine Beast Bloodline made the Celestial Phoenix an enigmatic creature.
It’s bloodline may have weakened, but its power was not affected at all.
This power, which was untouched by the bloodline seal, was called the Celestial Power.
The Celestial Power was power derived from the heavenly bodies, which could be stars, asteroids, large planets and other heavenly bodies found in space.
But it was mostly from stars, since stars were the most numerous heavenly bodies in space.
As for how this power clearly works, Fang Lin was also not sure, since every Celestial Phoenix will have their unique way of using the Celestial Power.
Each Celestial Phoenix had to undergo what was called Nine Celestial Nirvanas to increase their power.
Each one of these Celestial Nirvana will pose a great danger to the Celestial Phoenix, since it involves being reborn with the Celestial Essence from heavenly bodies.
Its kinda like how a normal phoenix grows stronger everytime it was reborn, but this time, the rebirth process needs the Celestial Essence of heavenly bodies.
The abilities that a Celestial Phoenix will gain depends on what Celestial Essence of heavenly body was used.
This means that if a Celestial Phoenix used the Celestial Essence of a certain star, its abilities will be different if another Celestial Phoenix used a different star for the Celestial Essence.
Oh, and each successful Celestial Nirvana was comparable to an increase in one stage of a Practitioner.
That means that a Celestial Phoenix with Four Celestial Nirvanas has power comparable to that of a Fourth Stage Practitioner.
Sounds cool, but like what was mentioned before, each Celestial Nirvana was dangerous.
To initiate one Celestial Nirvana, the Celestial Phoenix must be at the state where it will be just moment’s away from death.
Before it dies, the Celestial Phoenix must then absorb the Celestial Essence from the heavenly bodies to start its rebirth process.
Time it wrong, and the Celestial Phoenix will die.
Succeed on it, and the Celestial Phoenix will complete one Celestial Nirvana.
But this danger was worth it, because like what was said before, a successful Celestial Nirvana will add one Stage power and also unique Celestial Abilities.
Aside from that, it was also rumored that once a Celestial Phoenix finishes all the Nine Celestial Nirvanas, its bloodline seal will be broken, and it will be back on being a Godly Divine Beast.
But nobody was sure of that, since the highest record reached by a Celestial Phoenix was Eight Celestial Nirvanas.
That Celestial Phoenix was about to attempt its Ninth, but it failed because it was unexpectedly pregnant at that time.
Fang Lin’s Second Master witnessed this failure of the unlucky Celestial Phoenix.
Being the opportunistic old man that he was, he grabbed the unborn Celestial Phoenix from the dying Celestial Phoenix mother and nourished it until it was able to live as a baby Celestial Phoenix.
That was the moment that Fang Lin’s Second Master decided to encase the young Celestial Phoenix on an ice block for future experiments.
That Celestial Phoenix was the one that Fang Lin used to obtain his Celestial Phoenix Form.
..…..That was the Circle of Life.
Now, Illusion Fang Lin’s dilemma was the fact that the black-haired woman in front of him was actually a Celestial Phoenix!
Illusion Fang Lin was able to detect it, since he was also a Celestial Phoenix.
And judging from the way that the black-haired woman was looking at him, she seems to also know that Fang Lin was a ‘Celestial Phoenix’.
“Oh no! This is dangerous!” Illusion Fang Lin thought to himself.
Illusion Fang Lin was brought here on the guise that he was a Moon-Eating Serpent. But this black-haired woman sensed that he was also a Celestial Phoenix!
It will not take the black-haired woman an advanced intellect to realize that something was fishy with Illusion Fang Lin having two Divine Beast Bloodlines!
The brawny man finished tying the panicking Illusion Fang Lin up before looking at the black-haired woman.
Illusion Fang Lin then realized that with the looks given to her, it seems like the black-haired woman was the leader of this group.
“Leave us be. I want to ask him something.” The black-haired woman said as she waved her hand, indicating the other to leave her and Illusion Fang Lin.
“But Big Sis Chi Xing…” The brawny guy said as he hesitantly prodded Illusion Fang Lin. “This guy might be the spy.”
“That will be up to me to know, Bruno.” Chi Xing said as continued shooing them away. “Off you go guys.”
“Ok….” Everyone seemed to be obedient as they followed Chi Xing. In no time at all, it was only Chi Xing and Illusion Fang Lin left.
“Now then…” Chi Xing said as she stepped on Illusion Fang Lin’s chest hard. “I think you should spill the beans now. Or else, you will be in a world of pain…..”
Illusion Fang Lin sweated inwardly as he thought,
“Is she a dominatrix?”
