Fey Evolution Merchant - Chapter 2803
2803 Legend of 16 Wings!
Lin Yuan had always harbored high hopes for Red Thorn.
Excluding Genius and Chimey, Red Thorn was the first fey Lin Yuan had contracted.
He had acquired it from the Spirit Guards using the merit accumulated by his parents in this life.
Red Thorn was not an ordinary source-type lifeform but an amalgamation of three source-type lifeforms.
Red Thorn’s bloodline level was extremely high. Otherwise, it would not have been able to evolve into a ten-winged fairy when it was Myth Breed.
It went without saying that this was also related to Lin Yuan’s nurturing of Red Thorn and all the resources he provided it.
Red Thorn’s Tongue of Relinquish was a foundational ability that Lin Yuan relied on in his earlier battles. Without the Tongue of Relinquish, Lin Yuan would not have been able to nurture so many Eternal Weapons or take control of the Abyss Great Emperor.
The Abyss Great Emperor had been the strongest weapon at Lin Yuan’s disposal for a long time.
As Red Thorn evolved from Diamond/Fantasy to Suzerain VIII/Myth III, it wasn’t just its bloodline that improved significantly. By evolving from an eight-winged fairy to a 10-winged one, its bloodline was of an extremely high level, and it also gained a very powerful ability and exclusive skill.
Red Thorn’s Suzerain ability was called Demon Transformed Bound Fairy, allowing Red Thorn to inject its bloodline into a demon produced by the Tongue of Relinquish. The demon would then transform into a fairy with a bloodline one level lower than Red Thorn’s.
Red Thorn’s bloodline was currently higher than 10 wings. The fairy bloodline nurtured through Demon Transformed Bound Fairy would be higher than eight wings.
A fairy with a bloodline higher than eight wings would be considered outstanding.
The fairy produced by injecting bloodline into the demon would not only have the same abilities as Red Thorn but could also produce a Mouth of Relinquish if there was sufficient vitality.
When the Mouth of Relinquish digested and absorbed energy, it would channel the energy back to Red Thorn to speed up its growth. This essentially solved the issue of Red Thorn’s grade being difficult to evolve.
Moreover, Red Thorn’s depleted bloodline could be recovered in the future. With Lin Yuan’s help, Red Thorn’s roots would not be affected in any way.
Red Thorn’s Myth Breed exclusive skill was called Spores Destruction Death Order.
Red Thorn produced the sea of flowers for combat, which was its weapon against enemies.
While in the midst of fighting enemies, it was inevitable that many flowers would be destroyed.
The sea of flowers was grown from the ramets of spores. When the plants grown from the spores were killed by enemies, the energy from the enemies would be changed into pure death aura and death curse energy. The death aura could trigger the effects of the death curse energy.
Death curse energy was a type of curse energy. It could decide if the target lived or died by placing curses on the target and was extremely potent. The decision depended on the strength of vitality in the target’s body.
Undeniably, death curse energy had a low probability of affecting targets with powerful vitality in their bodies.
However, the death curse energy the sea of flowers produced would be gargantuan.
As long as there was sufficient death curse energy, even lifeforms with powerful vitality in their bodies could be killed by the curses.
Technically, Red Thorn’s grade and quality should not evolve this slowly. Evidently, it had diverted all the energy it had gained toward evolving its bloodline.
Lin Yuan highly approved of Red Thorn’s actions, but it could not be denied that it was an extravagance.
The moment Lin Yuan arrived, Morbius shifted its gaze away from Silver Corona and Red Thorn onto Lin Yuan.
Morbius’ gaze instantly softened when it landed on Lin Yuan.
Red Thorn and Silver Corona had also noticed Lin Yuan’s presence.
Both of them had been in seclusion and a state of half-slumber. Being in half-slumber, the two of them could absorb energy faster, but this also prevented them from snuggling up to Lin Yuan despite him being present in the Startling Lines Continent.
Red Thorn was just as domineering as ever, especially when it came to occupying Lin Yuan’s time and attention.
In the past, Red Thorn’s bloodline was firmly above Silver Corona’s. Hence, Silver Corona had not dared to compete with Red Thorn.
But now, they were 10-winged fairies, and the gap between their bloodlines was no longer as wide as it used to be. Hence, Silver Corona was now brave enough to compete with Red Thorn for Lin Yuan’s affection.
This greatly displeased Red Thorn.
Red Thorn watched Silver Corona perch on Lin Yuan’s shoulder and released its higher 10-winged fairy bloodline aura more than once as a warning to Silver Corona.
Silver Corona felt trepidation due to Red Thorn’s warning, but it did not leave Lin Yuan’s shoulder. With pitiful puppy-dog eyes, it looked at Lin Yuan as though silently pleading with him to stand up for it.
This further incensed Red Thorn, and it raised its small fists that looked as though they had been carved from jade and swung them around to intimidate Silver Corona.
When Lin Yuan saw this, he smiled vexedly and was about to speak when he saw Morbius shake its head. Almost immediately after, he heard Morbius’ voice through his soul. “Partner, fairies have clear ranks between each other. Fairies of different bloodline levels will be able to restrain each other. There’s no need for you to stand up for Silver Corona.
“In the future, Red Thorn’s bloodline will definitely become stronger than Silver Corona’s. If you step in for Silver Corona now, it won’t be able to handle itself once Red Thorn’s bloodline evolves.
“Red Thorn might be domineering, but it is very disciplined and reasonable. Once its bloodline evolves, it will punish Silver Corona for any disrespect. At that time, Silver Corona will no longer dare to act in such a manner.
“If you step in for Silver Corona, you’ll only give it undeserved favor. This will not only harm Red Thorn but will also ruin the order of your feys. There’s absolutely no need for such a thing.”
Lin Yuan nodded. He agreed with what Morbius said and did not say anything.
Although Silver Corona’s bloodline could not compare with Red Thorn’s, Silver Corona had a much higher grade than Red Thorn.
Silver Corona had reached Suzerain/Myth before Lin Yuan sent it below the Startling Lines Continent to absorb death aura.
Lin Yuan checked on Silver Corona.
[Fey Name]: Sea Burial Lotus Flower (Silver Corona)
[Fey Species]: Water Willow/Water Bone Lotus
[Fey Grade]: Sovereign (6/10)
[Fey Type]: Source/Fairy
[Fey Quality]: Creation VII
[Spotted Coral]: When trained according to the spots on the coral jade, different effects are generated.
1. Nurture Spot Style: Nurture the spots that were absorbed from the spotted coral jade in the bone lotus flowers. The bone lotus flowers will use a living being’s life and soul to nurture the spots to give them vitality. The spots with vitality can use the living being’s original strength to increase the strength and stamina of the bone lotus flowers.
2. Burial Spot Style: Place the spots in between the bone lotus flowers. The spots will eat the bone lotus flowers and become bone insects. The bone insects will retain the spot’s abilities and can deal with attacks on the bone lotus flowers according to the abilities. The external life force will be absorbed, and their souls can also be absorbed when the external life force is still weak.
[Bone Powder Mist]: The bone lotus flowers will vomit out the living being’s bones that could not be digested. The bone powder will fly up into the sky and stay in the coral spots once it reaches a set thickness of a layer.
[Blood Bone Insect Drunk]: While the bone insects are eating, they will enter a drunken state. When they’re in a drunken state, they will not feel any pain. The circulation of their root power will also slow down.
[Blooming Lotus]: The bone lotus flowers’ structure will change and split into main lotuses and branch lotuses. The branch lotuses will strengthen combat power, while the main lotuses will lose all combat power. Every time the main lotuses bloom, the spots will use the vitality they absorbed to produce a skeletal insect. The skeletal insect can consume them to repair the damage done to the body.
[Arrival of Grant of Death]: When the hermit’s dead servants cannot stand up against the enemies, they will change into the grants of death that place death penalties on the targets’ souls.
[Soul Parasite Rebirth]: The soul will be hosted in the main lotus. The main lotus will make a copy of the aura of the lifeform’s soul and vitality. When the target’s body and soul are damaged, the main lotus can be sacrificed while absorbing vitality and soul power to enable the target to be reborn. Once reborn, the target will be in a very weak state, and its soul and roots will also be diminished.
[Lotus Territory Fairy Shadow]: The fairy bloodline in its body will be used to nurture lotus fairies in the sea of bone lotus flowers. When the lotus fairies attack targets, there is a chance that the target will die instantly. The life forms killed by the lotus fairies will be turned into lotus puppets, and they will retain a portion of the targets’ abilities from when they were alive.
[Soul Receives Bone Territory]: Use the fairy bloodline to trigger its own soul. The soul will be linked to the sea of flowers and can temporarily store the sea of flowers. The larger the sea of flowers, the shorter the period it can be stored in the soul (Its soul energy can be used to replenish its soul territory. If there is insufficient soul energy to replenish or strengthen the sea of flowers, the soul will suffer irreparable damage.)
[Hermit’s Dead Servant]: When attacking the target, the bone lotus flower will absorb the target’s body. 1% of the target’s power will be injected into the target’s soul to cause the target to be pregnant with its dead soul. The dead soul will consume itself, and when the bone lotus flowers gain 36 hermit dead servants, every hermit dead servant will be able to create a layer of mist over the bone lotus flowers.
[Rotted Bones into Fireflies]: Both vitality and death aura will be absorbed simultaneously. The vitality will turn into fireflies that will mend the sea of bone lotus flowers. The death aura will increase the strength of every bone lotus flower. If there is a pile of rotting bones below the bone lotus flowers to supply nutrients to them, as long as the main lotus is alive, rotting lotuses will be produced from the rotting bones and energy will be saved!
[Lotus Territory Symbiosis]: All of the life forms in the territory will be classified as one entity, and their lives will be linked together. When individual targets are attacked, the lotus territory will take on some of the damage. Before the lotus territory is destroyed, the individual targets will continue to live.
[Parasite Bone Revives Life]: During combat, branch lotuses will be sacrificed to repair the sea of bone lotus flowers. Other bone lotus flowers and insect patterns can also be rejuvenated.
Lin Yuan checked and confirmed that Silver Corona had indeed reached Sovereign VI/Creation VII!
Silver Corona was much stronger than Red Thorn in terms of grade and quality. Yet, Silver Corona’s bloodline was still no match for Red Thorn’s. It was clear that Silver Corona’s bloodline had less potential. If Red Thorn attained a few more opportunities, there was a high possibility that its bloodline would evolve to 12-wings by the time it reached Silver Corona’s grade and quality.
According to Spring, the most powerful fairy in the Sky Beyond the Clouds was a 16-winged fairy. However, this legend came from ancient times. Now, it was unlikely that there were still any 16-winged fairies in the Sky Beyond the Clouds. 14-winged fairies were the peak there.
The Sky Beyond the Clouds’ faeries were managed and developed by a faction called Faerie Institution.
A few powerful factions also managed the fairies from the various universes. Ten Thousand Fairy Celestial Palace was the strongest fairy faction in the East Universe, and it had a 14-winged fairy.
Lin Yuan knew that the stronger the fairy’s bloodline, the tougher it would be to evolve. Ten Thousand Fairy Celestial Palace’s fairy only reached 14-wings when it reached Domain Mountain/Holy Spirit.
With the way that Lin Yuan was nurturing Red Thorn, if it could reach 12-wings when it was Sovereign/Creation, it was likely that its bloodline would be able to reach 14-wings when it reached World Emperor/Divine Kingdom.
It was possible for Red Thorn to take over the fairies’ legend. Fairies decided their ranks based on bloodline. If Red Thorn’s bloodline could truly reach 16-wings, it would be able to command all the fairy factions across the four universes.
Silver Corona’s potential paled compared to Red Thorn’s, but it was not bad at all compared to other fairies. Silver Corona’s bloodline would definitely be able to reach 12-wings when it reached World Emperor/Divine Kingdom. If it could attain a few opportunities, it would be able to grow its seventh pair of wings to reach 14-wings when it reached Domain Mountain/Holy Spirit.
Lin Yuan only needed to focus on nurturing Silver Corona and Red Thorn.
Lin Yuan always felt that Silver Corona had a drawback: its sea of bone lotus flowers could not be grown and destroyed at will like Red Thorn’s sea of Ffowers could. Hence, relocating Silver Corona’s sea of bone lotus flowers would be very difficult once it was grown in one area. Once this sea of bone lotus flowers was abandoned, Silver Corona would have to regrow it from scratch.
But now that Silver Corona had gained its Sovereign ability, Soul Receives Bone Territory, it could use its fairy bloodline to open a soul territory and use it as a vessel for the sea of bone lotus flowers. This would allow the sea of bone lotus flowers to be moved easily and significantly reduce the inconvenience that Lin Yuan had to work around.
Although the soul territory could only temporarily contain the sea of bone lotus flowers, external soul energy could replenish the sea of bone lotus flowers. This would allow Silver Corona to be sustained endlessly.
