“Lela, it’s great that you were hunting in the forest. Do you know anything about Eugene Elis?” Angele was not surprised by the woman at all. “Can you kill her for me? Turin and Victoria will be recognized right away if they appear in the public, but not a lot of people know about you.”
Lela was one of the three strongest wizards that worked for Angele.
Lela was also a wanted criminal of this land and she was the considered the strongest criminal about 500 years ago, even Victoria did not want to start an argument with her.
Angele’s security clearance level in the organization was high, but he still spent days to find this woman’s information. No one tracked her down in the last 500 years and people thought she disappeared or was killed just like other wanted criminals. Also, the major organizations focused more on the criminals that were still active.
“Eugene, huh? I actually know this woman…” A strange smile appeared on Lela’s face. “She’s a strong wizard and one of the strongest servants that served Shadow Lord. She almost caught me when I was still a wanted criminal…”
Angele nodded with a serious expression on the face. “Good then. You have the chance to settle that old grudge now.”
Lela chuckled. “Master, three rank 4 wizards from the Nomia Family of the underground world were killed by Eugene. Prince Panko was sent here to eliminate Eugene and I know Panko well. We can probably work together this time.”
“Huh? You know quite a lot people…” Angele stared at Lela. “Alright, then. We can work with him, however, make sure they don’t expose us to the public. You, Victoria, and Turin should track down Eugene using different methods. Also, she has a badge that was created by Shadow Lord.”
“That’s a great item!” Lela licked her lips. “Without Shadow Lord, she’d be killed a long time ago. With you backing us up, there’s nothing we should worry about. I’ll start tracking her as soon as possible.”
“Good then. Make sure you can complete the mission in a year. You can take whatever you want from her dead body,” Angele spoke in a cold tone.
“For sure.” Lela laughed and slowly disappeared into the forest.
Angele watched Lela leave and sighed slowly after several minutes. ‘Lela Dior, the princess of the Magic Ant Empire. The intel from the organization is true. Only races that live in the underground world will work together. Nomia Family is a famous wizard family in the underground world with a pure bloodline.’
Although Angele was the leader of the team, Lela, Victoria, and Turin were just cooperating with him. If he did not use the plan as an excuse, they would probably ignore his order. Angele would have to threaten them in the organization’s name without the excuse.
The other members of the organization all had their own plans. They would only assist Angele when necessary as all of them were strong wizards with deep backgrounds.
Angele decided to talk to Lela as he knew that Eugene tried to catch her before and Lela wanted revenge. Lela was a princess in the underground world, she had more ways to track Eugene and she had the perfect reason to do that.
Angele stood there and thought for a while. He noticed that the eye-shaped ring was glowing when he was about to leave.
“Green, are you alright?” The area messenger’s voice was transferred to his ear. “Do you want me to notify the organization?”
“I’m fine. There’s no point. If I can’t handle such a small problem, the organization will be disappointed. I have so many elites and resources in hand,” Angele responded in a calm tone.
“You’re right. Take care of yourself. You’re important to the organization.”
“I understand. I thought I was safe in the mansion and no strong wizard would attack me. That’s why I’m in a passive position. It won’t happen again. I’ll just summon Turin to help me,” Angele replied.
“Good.” The purple glow disappeared from the ring after the messenger finished this word.
Angele started returning to the mansion after he thought for a while.
Vivian checked Angele’s condition using the telescope after he returned to the mansion. She made sure that Angele wasn’t seriously injured, but she was furious when she cut the communication. It seemed like this thing would not end peacefully.
Elemental Hand was an aggressive organization because it had a strong elder council and several important positions in the alliance.
The alliance and the elder council would not let invaders attack their members in their own territories. The situation would be the same for the Wizard Guild and the three lords of the central council.
The three lords had strong backgrounds in the center of the central continent but they never left the area, because they set up their magic circles in their territory. Elemental Hand was the strongest organization in the Tarry River area, it was slightly weaker than Wizard Guild, but with the five legacy magic circles, the lords would not be able to survive if one of them decided to attack Elemental Hand alone.
That was the reason why Elemental Hand did not fear the lords.
The first elder of the Elemental Hand was a strong wizard that was just slightly weaker than the three lords, but he had the chance to win with the help of the legacy magic circle.
He had revealed his true power several times during the wars.
According to the information Angele had in hand, Elemental Hand had combined the power of the five legacy magic circles and applied it on the first elder, and he successfully injured the Sky Lord; however, he lost about 30 years of life expectancy.
Also, the first elder was a short-tempered man that would fight against anyone who was trying to attack the organization and the three lords did not want to mess with him.
Angele was a bit speechless. He was excited to test his Legacy Magic Circle Set, however, his Metal Mastery was just too weak. It was destroyed after it recovered not so long ago and the power of the magic circle set was not utilized. Although he could not fully activate the set yet, the base power of the metal abilities were just too low, and the buff from the set was not enough.
He decided that he would no longer use the Metal Mastery for defensive purposes as he wanted to utilize the attack power of the magic circle set.
It would take the workers a while to rebuild the mansion and Angele decided to move to the volcano ruin where Vivian lived.
It was also a request from Vivian. The volcano ruin was protected by countless traps and rune circles. They could easily stop a rank 4 wizard from invading the ruin, so Angele did not have to worry about anything.
The only problem was the simple food; everything else was perfectly fine to him.
Around ten days later…
In a spell lab of the volcano ruin.
Angele stood in the spell lab in a red robe; the eye-shaped ring on his left hand was surrounded by a purple glow. The purple light released by the ring created a flashing screen on the wall.
Complicated data was displayed on the screen.
“Breath of the Eye-Gouging Dragon…”
The screen stopped flashing.
Angele’s sight fell upon the information.
“Finally, that’s it. It took me so long to find this thing even though my clearance level is high. I assume not a lot of people know about this creature.”
‘Breath of the Eye-Gouging Dragon: Eye-gouging dragon is an underground creature; its body has the size of an average city, with more than 15 pairs of wings on its back. The creature is born without eyes and its hobby is to gouge other creatures’ eyes out. That is where their name came from. The thousand-eyed monsters are their best prey. However, most of the eye-gouging dragons were eliminated during a war against the ancient wizards and they disappeared. About 1046 years ago, Scholar Kenyan discovered the last eye-gouging dragon in the underground world. This dragon passed away after 331 years and the whole race extinguished.
‘The breath of the eye-gouging dragon deals strong frost damage to the target’s soul and physical body. Also, it’ll reduce the target’s life expectancy if not treated. Antidote for the frost damage: Liquid of the Dark Mother Tree, Blood of the Bronze Giant, Urine of the Mountain Dragon, Potion of the Devil Lord…’
The materials that could heal the frost damage were impossible to find and Angele only heard of a few of them. Also, there was a technique that could verify if the frost damage in his body was from the dragon breath. The technique was developed by a professor in the Department of Change.
‘Dragons, huh…’ Angele deactivated the ring and started thinking. ‘The dragons in this world seem different from the dragons I know. If the dragon had the size of a city, I’ll not be able to recognize it. A small part of its body will look like a tall hill. The Echinate Whale was around 1000 meters long but it would look like a chicken when compared to the dragon…
‘If the frost damage in my body is really caused by the dragon breath, how did the specter knight acquire it?’ Angele inhaled deeply and started drawing a complicated rune circle in the air.
Glowing yellow lines appeared in the air and a three-dimensional rune circle was quickly finished.
The rune circle was formed by two rotating plates that were moving in opposite directions, releasing gentle yellow light.
The rune circle vibrated as Angele finished the last line.
A black fissure appeared in the center of the circle, releasing heat waves into the lab room.
“Damn it…” Angele was disappointed. He did not want to believe that he was damaged by the dragon breath. However, the experiment had validated his assumption.
‘The plan will be activated in about ten years and I should go to the underground after everything settles down so I can solve the problem with Dark Wizard Tower’s help. My true form is improving every day; although it’s slowed down by the frost damage, it’s probably not a bad thing. There’ll be consequences if my power level increases too fast…’
Angele removed the ruin circle and started planning in his mind.
‘Eye-gouging dragon is a legendary creature in the underground world of the wizard world and it’s not from a different realm. The materials in the Nightmare Realm will not be helpful. I need to go to the underground world and try to find the solution.
‘Also, the eyeball I took from the specter knight, what does it do?’ Angele waved his right hand and a small white eyeball appeared. It almost looked like the eyeball was still alive and there was a red root connected to it.
Suddenly, Angele noticed that the eyeball looked identical to the eyeball he’d found in the center of a rune circle when he was exploring the Nightmare Realm.
He recalled the rune circle he found in the skeleton when exploring the tomb. The eyeball looked just like the one in his hand.
There had to be some connection between the two eyeballs.
