“Come on, who’re you?!” A female voice snapped Angele out of his thoughts.
He realized that he was holding a woman in his arm.
“It doesn’t matter. I’m the one that saved you from the prison after all. Don’t you think you should pay me back?” Angele responded in a calm tone.
“There’s a furious and strong aura around your body, but you’re releasing the energy that smelled like death at the same time. Scorpion woman is only a part of your bloodlines… Wait, your bloodlines are not conflicting, how’s that even possible?” The woman in black stared at Angele in fear, it seemed like she was not trying to escape.
Angele smiled, it was impossible for him to tell that woman that he had a biochip. Also, none of the strong beings in the realms that he had visited knew that it was possible for a man to choose his own bloodline structure since they usually just inherited the bloodlines from their ancestors.
There were three major bloodlines in Angele’s body: The bloodline of the Son of the Sun, the bloodline of the scorpion woman, and the bloodline of the single-eyed giant. There were also other bloodlines in his body, like the bloodline of the tree elf that he inherited from his mother.
The black bat was flying at full speed in the dark sky and its wings were making loud noises.
He could not see any living beings in the area and the land was covered with dark red cracks. The trees and the grass were dying and it felt like the whole realm was decaying.
Angele stopped talking, he lowered his back and started thinking. The woman in black stopped talking as well for some reason.
After reading the report from the biochip, Angele was wondering if he should just give up the bloodline of the single-eyed giant. However, his true form was close to the power level of a rank 6 wizard, and he did not want to just give it up.
Angele needed to increase his power level as fast as possible since the lords were all much stronger than him. He would have to start from the beginning if he decided to abandon the bloodline of the single-eyed giant.
“Soul River? There is a Soul River here…” The woman suddenly opened her mouth.
Angele looked down as he heard these words.
There was a large egg-shaped river on the dark-red land and Angele could see silver fish swimming in the vibrant green water slowly. Each of the fish was more than 100 meters long.
The water was clear and Angele noticed that the fish had strange appearances.
There was something coming out of each fish’s large mouth. He looked at the tiny things and realized that they were white fish scale men with fish bones on their backs.
They were leaving and entering the fish’s large mouths. It seemed like those fish were moving buildings to the fish scale men. Angele also saw that some of the fish buildings were actually stores. He could see weapon, armor, and herb stores.
“That’s the Soul River?” Angele wondered. “There’s a fight going on, right? It seems like those creatures in the river were not impacted.”
The woman in black sneered. “They have nothing to worry about. The Soul River is in a different dimension, it looks like an ordinary river, but we won’t be able to enter it. Also, the residents of the Soul River never liked mortals. They’ll laugh if they know this land is being invaded.”
Angele smiled but he did not respond. He knew that Bone and Eye Devil were fighting for the Heart of the Soul River. This Soul River would be attacked sooner or later if Eye Devil could solve her problem.
“Those fish are interesting, are the fish scale men living in the stomach of the fish?”
The woman in black nodded. “Yeah, we call them residents of the Soul River and they build their houses in the stomachs of the fish. Also, they’ve already changed the fish’s body structure over the years. The sign that increased their size was from Sea God and some mysterious ancient sign strengthened the fish’s bodies… which means….”
“Wait!” Angele interrupted. “You mean you can separate the gods’ signs and the separated signs have different effects? I thought their signs only had one unique effect.”
“Of course! Do you know the Sabulous Snakes? They live in many different realms and their signs are all different. Do you know the Destruction Eyes? Do you really think their signs are made of simple runes?” The woman in black was surprised, it seemed like the words she just said were common sense. “You’re an inheritor of the scorpion woman, right? Didn’t you inherit the knowledge?”
“What about the signs of the races that have already extinguished?” Angele questioned; he sounded excited.
“It depends on their power level. Some of the ancient creature’s signs can still be used but the weaker ones will become normal signs without any power,” the woman responded.
Angele felt much better after hearing these words, he was worrying about the bloodline of the single-eyed giant before.
“Thanks for the information.” He closed his eyes before the woman replied and blue light dots flashed in front of his eyes.
A translucent blue light screen appeared in his sight after he closed his eyes.
‘Scan the cells of the single-eyed giant’s bloodline,’ he ordered in mind.
‘Scanning… Recording the data…’
About ten seconds later, a pyramid-shaped red cell appeared on the light screen.
The cell was quickly zoomed in and he could see white dots that looked like worms inside it.
The white dots were floating in the cell sap, they looked like random things that floated in a river.
‘Scanning the field mitochondria…’
Field mitochondria was a new thing that Angele discovered a while ago when he was checking his body. It looked identical to the normal mitochondria and supplied energy to the cell. However, the field mitochondria could only be found in the cells of the ancient bloodlines, and Angele decided to give it a random name.
The white dots were zoomed in and Angele found the complicated hook-shaped rune circles inside them.
The black rune circles were flashing and it felt like they were following a certain pattern. Countless small circles that varied in size were inside the rune circle. They looked like a complicated machine that was built with gears that varied in shapes.
Angele noticed that it seemed like the rune circle was incomplete as part of it was blurred for some reason.
“This must be the runes of the single-eyed giant’s bloodline; now, the only thing I need to do is change the part that caused the conflict… I should probably utilize the runes of the Son of the Sun.”
He lowered his body again and started checking the runes in the bloodline of the scorpion woman and the bloodline of the Son of the Sun.
Scorpion woman could still be found so all the runes were still working. Also, Angele was absorbing fear so he could easily figure out which part of the runes gave him the ability.
Part of the single-eyed giant’s runes was no longer effective, so Angele removed them. He did the simulation and moved the useless runes into the scorpion woman’s runes.
Most parts of the Son of the Sun’s runes were useless, only a tenth of it was still working. Angele felt relieved—if he did not hear the information from the woman and chose the Son of the Sun as his main bloodline, the situation would be much worse.
Angele recorded all the runes and compared the runes of the three bloodlines with the runes from the Destruction Eye. He then tried to modify the runes by himself.
He decided to make the runes of the scorpion woman his major runes after removing some of the basic rune parts that were related to the illusions. He added the remaining runes from the Son of the Sun and the single-eyed giant to the major rune. The biochip did countless simulations and finally found the perfect result.
The final rune looked a strange circle with a triangle inside.
‘If I’m not mistaken, the rune should be able to utilize the strengths of the three different bloodlines. However, I still need to do some experiments to test the actual result.’
The bloodline rune was a special sign that was related to the ancient bloodline. Changing the rune circles inside the cell was the same as changing the bloodline; however, Angele was the only that had the ability to do something like this with the help of the biochip.
‘I’m done modifying the rune circle, but I need to recreate it and insert it into my cells… Wait!’ Angele suddenly recalled the strange feeling he had when looking at the runes of the scorpion woman.
‘Show me the runes of the scorpion woman.’
The rune of the scorpion woman was displayed on the light screen; part of the runes looked identical to the strange patterns he found in the Erin’s Funeral Oration.
‘It’s possible that the purpose of practicing the meditation technique is to strengthen those special runes… However, those runes will not appear if one keeps strengthening the original runes in his bloodline, which means the runes appeared naturally, and the process of practicing the meditation technique is to make sure that the runes will expand to every corner of one’s body…’
It was just Angele’s assumption. No one knew if people developed the advanced meditation techniques by strengthening the runes or if the runes appeared after people started practicing the meditation techniques they found.
However, Angele was certain that the bloodline of the scorpion woman changed after he practiced the Erin’s Funeral Oration. Without the ancient bloodline inside his body, the Erin’s Funeral Oration would not do anything for him. Also, the Erin’s Funeral Oration was not effective as it did not fit his bloodline.
Angele understood how the ancient bloodline was improved in the Nightmare Realm; however, it was just one of the paths from a random realm. The exciting part was that he was getting closer to the truth of the ancient wizards.
The ancient wizards communicated with countless realms and found many paths to become the strongest wizards in the world. There had to be a different way than improving the bloodline runes; however, this path would help Angele reach his goal. Different evolutions would happen due to the realm differences.
For example, creatures with physical forms were different from the creatures with just energy forms.
Angele was tired but excited after analyzing all the data. He stopped looking at the light screen created by the biochip.
‘The bloodline rune is probably just part of the ancient bloodline. I’ve analyzed countless bloodlines but I only found the runes once in the cell of the skeleton soldier, it was the same for the large tooth I found in the main world. The owner of the tooth probably walked a different path. Anyway, I’ve found what I needed.
‘After I get back, I’ll follow the method mentioned in the Erin’s Funeral Oration and modify it according to my needs. Also, I can absorb all the bloodline to the bloodline runes during the process and create a stable bloodline rune. It’s a new path that’s discovered by me…’
Angele had always been cautious, he wanted to make sure he did not make any mistakes. Finally, there was a clear path ahead.
Angele decided to make a plan and find out what resources he needed to collect.
‘The current bloodline should be the basic part, I need to find the bloodlines that can help improve my bloodline runes. Also, I need a technique that fits them. My progress will be accelerated greatly after everything is accomplished!’ He almost wanted to travel back to his lab room and start working right away.
The black bat was still flying; they passed by the Soul River and got closer to the silver city. The negative emotions were getting more and more intense in the air.
The black smoke created by the negative emotions gathered around the woman. Angele, the woman, and the bat were all surrounded by the black smoke.
Angele and the woman were the only two that could see the black smoke and the bat had no idea that he was in a ball of smoke.
The dark-red land turned black and black smoke was coming out of the cracks on the ground. The buildings were damaged and burnt black.
Angele could see that there was a rotating smoke tornado in the sky ahead.
Beside the tornado, Eye Devil’s body was being attacked by four blue lasers and she could not move at all. She was being dragged to the center of the smoke tornado.
Eye Devil screamed again; the large eyeball on her waist was vibrating and its size was changing constantly—it felt like the eyeball could explode at any time.
The clouds were cleared as Eye Devil screamed, revealing the dark-red sky.
