‘The Fallen One”s methods surprised Chen Rui. After he inherited the strength of the ancient alchemy civilization at Loeb Mine of the White Feather Estate, he badly wounded the Crystal Dragon Jacob. In the end, the crystal dragon fled with serious injuries, and his whereabouts were unknown. The crystal dragon was the peak stage of the Demon Overlord at the beginning, but he was severely injured. Plus, the characteristics of the crystal dragon were somewhat similar to the giant crystal beast where he could not use ordinary ways to treat himself, so he could only use his vitality.
If ‘The Fallen One’ is the Crystal Dragon Jacob, then there is no doubt that he has reached the kingdom level, and his control of strength is exquisite, which is a big leap from before. No matter what the identity of The Fallen One is, he is an enemy that cannot be ignored, especially the methods that are extremely cruel. Putting aside Zola and Lalaria, if Olypheus or other acquaintances encounter this enemy, the best way is to admit defeat directly. Otherwise, it will be absolutely life-threatening.
After the 4 fights were over, Olypheus and The Fallen One advanced to the round in the upper bracket and Catherine and Red Pipit advanced for the lower bracket.
In the subsequent matches, the most eye-catching was the appearance of the Demon Realm’s top powerhouse Raizen. Raizen’s opponent was also 1 of the 3 generals of the Bloody Empire, Gustav.
This fight was broadcast live in the center of the arena.
The battlefield where Raizen and Gustav were located was an empty field surrounded by a forest. The 2 of them stared at each other for a long time without any movement. It was also a duel between the emperor and the general. Many viewers could feel that this pair of ruler and general was completely different from the previous Catherine vs Versten.
Raizen looked at Gustav lightly, “What an unexpected lot, or is that what you expected?”
Gustav’s lips moved but he did not say anything. However, that kind of indifferent gaze was not the kind of attention an empire general should have on a ruler.
“There are still 30% of the Samael Royal Family left behind in Town Essidor, right?”
Raizen’s random words sent a chill in Gustav’s eyes. Finally, he said, “What do you want to say?”
“2 years ago, I gave you and the Samael Royal Family a chance.” Raizen said, “Unfortunately, the actions of the Samael Royal Family have already given me the answer.”
Gustav frowned, “In the past 2 years, I have helped you clear the hidden forces of the Bloodfall, and the military power has gradually been handed over. Why can’t you just give the Samael Royal Family a place to live?”
“I once thought that the Samael Royal Family was no longer a threat to the empire, but after ‘that person’ revealed his true colors. I just realized that the Samael Royal Family has never really surrendered. As for the threat to the empire, I’ve never had the habit of tolerating it.”
‘That person’ was naturally Teris, or more precisely, the Lord of Midnight Sun.
As everyone knew, the Samael Royal Family had not yielded to the Bloody Empire since the empire was destroyed. It had been brutally suppressed many times. More than 100 years ago, the Bloody Empire Young Prince Teris succeeded in persuading the Samael Royal Family. The Samael Royal Family’s young chief, Gustav, became the first general of the Bloody Empire, integrating the Samael Royal Family into the Bloody Empire. However, during the negotiation of the 3 empires in Town Nimbus, Teris showed his true colors. Then only Raizen knew the so-called ‘persuasion’ was actually a big trap. Teris merged the soul of the Lord of Midnight Sun which was attached to the Old Patriarch Lagraross of the Samael Royal Family and used the Samael Royal Family to develop the Bloodfall with an intent to control the Bloody Empire.
After Teris’ death, Gustav continued to be ‘reused’ by Raizen. In fact, under the pressure of Raizen, he had handed over the military power step by step and did all he could to clear the remnants of the Bloodfall.
The Bloody Empire was the most infiltrated empire by the Bloodfall forces. In the past 2 years of armistice, with the help of Gustav, Raizen finally completely eliminated this trouble. Fighting the enemies world required calming the inside first. This was actually to prepare for the war 2 years later. He just didn’t expect that in just 2 years, the strength of the Fallen Angel Empire had skyrocketed to the point where the Bloody Empire and the Dark Shadow Empire needed to join forces.
“Not only that, the plan you initiated is actually in my grasp. Do you think you can divert my attention by following me to the Iron Fist Estate to participate in this martial battle?” Raizen stared coldly at Gustav’s eyes, “The winner takes it all; the strongest one is honored. After so many years, can the Samael Royal Family still not recognize reality? The Wrath Empire has long been annihilated. This is the Bloody Empire. To survive, you must abandon the so-called pride and truly surrender to me! Otherwise, there will only be 1 fate, completely obliterated!”
After the Fallen Angel Empire’s military parade, the Bloody Empire became unstable and a currency crisis occurred, so the Samael Royal Family wanted to take advantage of the martial battle championship to initiate an incident, but it was unexpectedly under Raizen’s control.
Gustav looked at Raizen without hesitation and said, “There is something innate in our blood and in our breath that even in the face of death, it does not dim or fade away.”
“Very good!” Raizen’s mouth curled into a sneer, “In previous years, the martial battle was held inside the Bloody Empire, and each level had abundant rewards. Since you met me in the competition today, I will give you another opportunity. Under the same strength, as long as you can defeat me, I will change the order of obliteration to hard labor! However, since you want to challenge me, you must be prepared to die!”
Gustav took a deep breath and clenched his fists.
“You can also choose to admit defeat and leave now, or even escape the Bloody Empire,” Raizen added proudly, “I’m not going to hunt down a bereaved dog.”
“You’re right, Samael Royal Family, never give in!” Gustav’s eyes burned with a strong fighting spirit, “Raizen! I, Bridget. Samael, challenge you!”
“You are finally going to reuse your real name? The genius young chief of the Samael Family!” Raizen said indifferently, “I know that you have been hiding your strength all these years. Let me see what capabilities the ‘Wrath King’ Bridget. Samael has!”
Although the audience in the arena saw the confrontation between the 2 through projection and screen, no one could hear the dialogue between Raizen and Gustav except for 1 person, Chen Rui. This projection broadcasting system was actually the product of the ancient alchemy civilization. As the controller of the spiritual imprint, he could hear the sound of every arena within effective distance.
The name Bridget rang a bell for Chen Rui. When Chen Rui was in Town Lupin. He once met the Dark Elemental King, the Water Elemental King and Gustav under the alias ‘Bridget’. It turns out that this is Gustav’s real name!
Bridget took a deep breath, and the whole woodland seemed to be moved by the rate of his breathing. The leaves were flying. There was a red bead in his hand. After the bead was crushed, thick blood mist gushed out, covering almost all the audience’s vision.
Wrapped in the blood mist, Bridget’s body swelled as if he was inflated. After the blood mist was completely absorbed into his body, Bridget had changed from a tall and thin man to a burly man with muscular muscles. This was not a simple change in appearance. It contained the terrifying explosive power like dynamite.
“The Samael Royal Family has 3 kinds of bloodline talents. Unfortunately, my qualifications are limited, and I have only awakened [Bloodfury]. This bead was given to me by ‘that person’ back then. It can absorb the power of the blood essence that I have trained and hide my strength.” Bridget raised his fist, “Today, I will do everything in my power to fight you to the death!”
“The peak stage of the Demon Overlord… almost kingdomization. You are really worthy of being the ‘Wrath King’.” Raizen nodded slightly, “I will limit my strength to the peak stage of the Demon Overlord now. If you can make me step out of this circle, I will consider you win.”
With that said, Raizen’s breath changed quickly. No doubt, he was lowered to the peak stage of the Demon Overlord. At the same time, a blood-red light circle with a diameter of less than 2 meters appeared under his feet.
This light circle reminded Chen Rui of the gambling agreement with a certain lesbian dragon, but Raizen was known as ‘peerless’ when he was in Demon Overlord. Furthermore, the strength of the past 2 years seemed to be a result of an unusual encounter, so his strength had broken through to the intermediate stage of the kingdom. Even if he suppressed his own strength to the same level, Gustav’s odds of winning were still slim.
Bridget didn’t say much and just shouted. A faint red light emerged from his fist, and he punched toward Raizen across the distance. The leaves flying all over the sky turned into red powder and dissipated. Raizen didn’t dodge and grabbed it with 1 hand. The power of the fist was crushed forcibly.
Bridget’s punch was just a test, followed by countless rays of light. He didn’t make any extra fancy moves, just the simplest and most effective attack. This was somewhat similar to Raizen.
In the blink of an eye, Raizen was enveloped in red light from all directions. Those red lights paused and were shattered by a fist, Raizen’s fist.
Blood red color flashed in Bridget’s pupils, and blood spilled from his mouth. He had already used the talent of the Samael Royal Family [Bloodfury].
The special attribute of [Bloodfury] was that the heavier the injury, the stronger the combat power. This talent made the Samael Royal Family known as lunatics as they fight in an extremely crazy manner. Of course, the strength of [Bloodfury] was not inexhaustible. If it exceeded the limit, one would be seriously injured and dead without the enemy’s action.
As soon as [Bloodfury] was activated, Bridget’s originally strong arm swelled a bit, and his speed became faster. In the blink of an eye, he appeared behind Raizen and punched his back with a concise and powerful punch. When the punch was about to approach, Raizen turned around incredulously and waved his fist. In a flash, the 2 fists collided.
There was a muffled sound around the 2 of them. A circle of dense dust and fallen leaves were repelled outward under the action of the force field, and the enchanted ground actually trembled.
“Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom…“
The ground shook constantly. In an instant, it was unknown how many punches the 2 had punched against each other.
Raizen didn’t wait for him to attack, and he punched in the air. Although the punch was nearly 10 meters apart, it was like a direct blow. Bridget couldn’t dodge and flew backward, but he was uninjured.
“Wrath King Armor?” Raizen’s eyes turned to the armor worn by Bridget, which was 1 of the 7 artifacts of the Demon Realm, Wrath King Armor. With this powerful armor, Bridget should be invincible.
