In the end, Annan wasn’t clear why Amos wanted to steal Joseph’s curse vessel.
“But since you survived, it probably means that Amos died in the end?”
Annan appeared curious and ignorant. Finally, he said in an innocent voice, “What happened back then?”
Judging by the look of Joseph he saw on the live broadcast, Joseph Buckel was not as peaceful as now.
When Joseph was young, he was a fierce hunk who could perfectly play Jason with a mask and roamed Travis County, Texas, with a chainsaw on his back.
Annan did not doubt that if Amos appeared before Joseph, this brave and righteous Brother Sledgehammer would smash his head with a sledgehammer without mercy.
No matter how tough Amos’ head was, could it be tougher than a hammer?
“How Amos died, in the end, is ridiculous.”
Joseph’s expression is more complicated, “I don’t know if you have read the newspaper of the year. It was mentioned that the police arrested Amos.
“Have you heard about this? It was quite famous back then.”
“Yup,” Annan replied. This was what Salvatore showed him in the newspaper.
“Then I think you should know that at the time, the police station was ‘seeking assistance from relevant industry insiders.’”
Joseph chuckled and pointed his finger at himself, “I’m ashamed to say that I’m the relevant person in the industry.”
You’re indeed relevant and indeed in the industry.
So Annan was convinced and nodded.
He asked, “So, what happened?”
“The scene in that nightmare was distorted. I went along with the public security bureau. Indeed, we entered from the main entrance.
“Although I don’t know where he got the information, he ambushed us.”
Joseph said in a deep voice, “We were in a group of 13 people and five professionally trained police dogs.
“Besides Sergeant Hiram and me, there are also former police chief Job Boro who was demoted later on because of the Elle disappearance case, five police officers with guns, and five police officers with shields.
“There are only two Transcended in the team, Sergeant Hiram and me. But we are both Silver Rank Transcended. I’m an Edict Wizard, and he is an Occult Bond Envoy. Our combination is powerful.”
Annan had read about the “Occult Bond Envoy” profession in Salvatore’s books.
This was a Silver Rank’s hidden profession.
Those in this profession would be most likely an officials.
Because to the average person, the Transcended ability of this profession was meaningless.
Its value came from “bonds.” The Occult Bond Envoy could transfer the energy through the bonds as long as the targets were within his field of vision and held the special emblem made by them.
To put it simply, the Occult Bond Envoy could act as a transit point to connect the mana pools of nearby wizards, allowing them to borrow mana from other allies. He could even spread the injuries suffered by a certain friendly unit to nearby allies; Or transfer the injuries of everyone around them to an ally.
The Occult Bond Envoy could aid the front liners charging toward the enemy by borrowing the physical strength of the soldiers in the back. He could concentrate the self-regeneration of a large number of ordinary soldiers to heal a target’s injury quickly and even allow someone to bear the fatigue of everyone. Of course, this applied to curses as well.
The cost of this ability did not need to be fully paid by “allies.”
The Occult Bond Envoy could forcibly tie his emblem on the conscious prisoner of war and used the prisoner either as a battery or a shield.
It was a relatively rare but powerful profession under some circumstances.
In a one-to-one fight, the Occult Bond Envoy would be pretty weak. Besides their Silver Rank stealth ability, they had no transcended abilities that could be utilized in combat. Moreover, their transcended abilities need to be “in field of vision” to use, so they certainly had to sneak at the team’s backline.
However, the Occult Bond Envoy was efficient in teaming up with Edict Wizards, known for its comprehensive capabilities, strong control, and superior team buffing ability. By adding a bunch of cannon fodder police officers, the team could be effective in many situations.
Indeed, at least half of the ten police officers were positioned as cannon fodder to sustain Joseph’s damage.
“However, shortly after entering the hall, the chandelier in the middle suddenly smashed down. One person was smashed to death before he could dodge away, and one person was seriously injured. However, after a police dog search, we found something strange about his paintings and the approximate location of the basement.
“However, although we knew the location, we could not enter the secret passage leading to the basement for the time being. So we sent a police officer and asked him to urgently call some Black Fire and explode the secret passage directly.”
“Later, we saw him between the second and third floors. After our warning shots went to no avail, we continued our pursuit. But considering his identity and reputation at the time, we didn’t dare to shoot him directly. Hence, we decided to catch up and subdue him.”
At this point, regrets flooded Joseph.
He shook his head and sighed, “If the sheriff were more decisive and shot at that time, things would have gone better.
“When we chased Amos down to the fourth floor, he activated an unknown curse vessel. Five bullets came from the future. The bullets were fired out of my sight.
“I was shot together with four other police officers. Among them was the former police chief, Job Boro. Two of them were shot at the lethal spot and died immediately. Although the remaining two were shot in the shoulders and arms, they were also severely cursed. As you may have already known, ordinary people couldn’t bear any curse.”
Unfortunately, three police officers died. The two police officers also went crazy on the spot because the scene was too cruel, and they suffered a substantial mental shock. They then died of injuries a few days later.
This news report came to Annan’s mind.
Two of the three police officers should have been killed by “Time Stopper Eye’s gramophone.” The chandelier should kill the remaining one.
As for the two remaining police officers who “went crazy on the spot,” the turbid blood bullets must have hit them.
“By then, three people among the team are already dead, right? But I remember the report said that there are five casualties.”
Annan asked, “Except for them, did anyone else get injured afterward? What is that ‘colored flesh ball’? Is it that deity’s son?”
Joseph was silent for a moment, and he nodded.
His expression was a little gloomy.
Joseph whispered. His voice became a little low, somewhat ironic, but also a little scared, “Of course, we have the Occult Bond Envoy.
“Since there are two people who will die sooner or later already, how will the Occult Bond Envoy let the others further get hurt?”
