Chapter 352 – Dis Pluto (2)



After everyone left, only Hades and Doyle remained in the grand hall.


Hades smiled bitterly looking at Doyle, who exuded Persephone’s scent.


On the other hand, Doyle was expressionless, as if he was wearing a mask.


Hades’s smile turned even bitter. It was a smile of sadness. He broke the silence.


“Have you been well, Persephone?”


* * *


Yeon-woo’s body was burning with heat.


Part of it was the fever that came from attempting his reawakening, but most of it was due to the 900 Channelings still connected to him after the battle was over.


He had to both cool his fever and focus on the awakening process at the same time.


[Hermes looks at you with interest.]


[Ares clenched his fists, saying men should be strong.]


[Hundun quietly watches you.]


[A message from Agares has arrived.]


[Message: Get rid of those lowly Divine Blessings and take what I offer…..!]


[Messages from Agares have been temporarily blocked by the authority of other gods and demons.]


[Athena paces around, thinking of what she can do to help.]


[Thanatos watches you.]


[Nergal watches you.]


[Osiris watches you.]


…..


[Vimalacitra hopes there is a path in your penance.]


[Cernunnos is silent.]


Yeon-woo was dizzy from the messages that kept on popping up, but he was having a good time. Nothing felt better than becoming stronger.


It was also a good opportunity to see where the end of his potential was after swallowing the Summer Queen and the Monkey King’s shedding.


Hwak—


As soon as the thought left his mind, black and gold light combined around his body to create a strange phenomenon.


The light drew three different flowers and turned into a red snake to enter Yeon-woo’s head.


The One-horned tribe was detailed in how they classified the different peaks of martial arts.


From the three flowers gathering to the red snake.


The peak that combined the different internal energies as one and swallowed it to further the growth of the soul and the body.


It was proof that he had reached the ends of the expert level.


The deeper his soul became, the more his body followed, and the awakening process entered its final stages.


When Divine Blessings were imprinted into the deepest parts of his cells and the Dragon and Demonic Blessings had reached a balance…..


The moment the Dragon and Demonic Blessings, which had been fighting for control, couldn’t move anymore as they were put into a three-way confrontation, the process finished.


[The Divine Blessings are awakening.]


[The Divine Blessings are awakening.]


……


[The Divine Blessings have successfully settled.]


[Divine Blood will be added to your Demonic and Dragon Blood.]


[Divinity is firmly engraved into your demonic and dragon bones.]


……


[You have succeeded in combining Divine, Demonic, and Draconic Blessings.]


[The change of your properties was completed successfully. ‘Demonic Dragon Body’ has been upgraded to ‘Demonic Divine Dragon Body.’]


[This is the first of its kind to be created. Nothing is known about the potential and limits of the body. Uncover information about the body yourself.]


……


[You have achieved something not easily accomplished. Additional Karma is being provided.]


[You have gained 100,000 Karma.]


[You have gained an additional 200,000 Karma.]


[You have gained clues about ‘Divinity’ and ‘Supernaturalness.’]


[The gods of death watch you.]


[The demons of death watch you.]


[The gods of war bless you.]


[The demons of death are discussing your level again. They need more time for their judgment.]


Yeon-woo slowly opened his eyes.


He was in a place that was just big enough for a single person to lie down. White walls, ceilings, and the iron bars were all he had. He requested to be put in here because he didn’t want to be bothered by anyone when he was awakening and working through the fever.


Thankfully, there were no interruptions, and the awakening was finished.


The words “first of its kind” stood out to Yeon-woo the most.


It seemed it was true that although there were dragons who became demonic, none of them made deals with gods.


‘Did something change?’


When he first created his Demonic Dragon Body, he couldn’t even attempt to control his overflowing power.


He was able to reach the 3rd awakening as a result of it.


However, the Demonic Divine Dragon Body was quite different.


Although the system messages were saying a lot had changed, Yeon-woo didn’t know what had. He felt normal.


‘No. The divine fever is gone.’


He realized that the fever that had burnt his body up had completely disappeared.


It wasn’t because the Channelings vanished either.


He could feel the 900 gazes on him. No, they were even clearer than before.


He could feel where, how, and who was watching him.


“This is Hermes here, Athena here, and Cernunnos there. And this is….. Vimalacitra.”


Yeon-woo pointed with his finger and muttered to himself.


[Hermes nods with satisfaction.]


[Athena tears up, touched.]


[Cernunnos silently watches you.]


[Vimalacitra blesses you for finishing your penance.]


[Agares is mad that you didn’t call his name.]


[A message from Agares has arrived.]


[Message: Why didn’t you call…..?!]


[Messages from Agares have been temporarily blocked by the authority of other gods and demons.]


[Agares has released the block with his authority.]


[A message from Agares has arrived.]


[Message: You guys must have gone nuts…..!]


[Messages from Agares have been temporarily blocked by the authority of other gods and demons.]


Yeon-woo ignored Agares, who was running rampant once again, and examined each of the Channelings. He could feel the individual supernatural beings connected with him like they were all right next to him.


‘The characteristics of the Authorities are different. Is this divinity?’


Yeon-woo had only focused on the traits and effects of the Authorities as he used them. They were only tools.


But now that he was able to sense them more deeply, he realized that wasn’t everything.


The depth of Authorities had no end.


He was able to check the general positions of each god and demon as well as their divinities.


He could tell how Thanatos and Nergal were both gods of death, but he couldn’t discern any other information.


The category of their Authorities was “death,” but the detailed information within it was vastly dissimilar.


Now that he could feel them, it was obvious that he would be able to use the Authorities more proficiently.


Of course, that didn’t mean the 900 Authorities were all settled. There were still some difficult parts, but he probably wouldn’t faint anymore after releasing them all.


That was a huge development.


Yeon-woo opened the information window to look closer.


[Trait: Demonic Divine Dragon Body]


Summary: Dragons, demons, and gods have been the highest species at the top of the world with their supernaturality since the beginning of time.


There hasn’t been a case of having every single one of their Blessings, so the possibilities are endless.


Accomplishing “the first of its kind” will lead you on the path of the Demonic Divine Dragon that will soon be born.


*Gold Dragon


You can further the Authorities of dragons, demons, and gods.


*Domain of Dragons, Demons, and Gods


You can declare your own domain, ‘Binah,’ over a specified territory based on your qualifications.


*Dragons, Demons, and Gods’ Knowledge


According to your qualifications, you can view ‘Hochma’ that dragons investigated, ‘Netzeth’ that demons created, and ‘Iesod’ that gods created.


*Dragons, Demons, and Gods’ Authorities


According to your qualifications, you can activate ‘Keter’ that dragons learned, ‘Tiferet’ that demons mastered, and ‘Chesed’ that gods set up.


However, there was near nothing he could learn from the information window. It seemed that he would have to figure it out for himself since his body was the first of its kind.


Closing the window, he sat cross-legged on the floor. He was going to learn the exact condition of his body.


‘And I have to check Divinity and Supernaturality.’


His consciousness faded below.

That night, Hades ordered Yeon-woo to leave the prison and begin creating Kynee right away.


Since he had broken the ceasefire, Typhoon could come attacking with the Titans and Giants any time.


Hades wanted to prepare for what could come by finishing the great artifact.


There was still a military air around the territory.


“Here. Call for me if you need anything.”


Lam led the party to the smithy. It was clear she would never have taken them there if it wasn’t for Hades’s orders. She left after glowering at Yeon-woo.


Yeon-woo knew why Lam was acting like that.


He was treated in two polar opposite ways by Dis Pluto. They either glared at him or encouraged him.


The former group was angry for breaking the ceasefire, and the latter was glad that he killed a Titan.


Yeon-woo didn’t care about either of them.


His head was filled with thoughts of finishing Kynee and undoing the seal on the pocket watch.


『It’s been a while.』


『Ah! I didn’t know I’d be back here again!』


The Cyclops Brontes and Steropes were emotional as they looked around the smithy.


The youngest, Arges, rubbed his eyes that were brimming with tears. He never would’ve imagined that the three brothers would be able to work here again. He had only ever dreamed about it.


Unlike the emotional Cyclopes…..


“There’s too much to touch.”


“How were they able to create weapons here all this time?”


“That must’ve been how bad the situation was. It’s a wonder they were able to last in the fight against the Titans.”


Brahm, Victoria, and Henova sighed.


With just a glance, they could tell it was a mess. There were only a few furnaces that worked, and tools like the hammer and anvil were so old that it was incredible that they hadn’t crumbled.


There wasn’t any metal left in the shed either. It seemed impossible to fix the place up.


The weaponries of the large clans in the lower world seemed better off.


Hades was once famous for being the wealthiest out of all the gods and demons.


But now, that was all gone, and nothing was left.


Arges had a glum face. The blacksmiths who used to look down on Hephaestus of 〈Olympus〉 once upon a time were no more.


“But the fire seems different.”


Yeon-woo looked at the fire burning in the furnace. On the outside, there was nothing that stood out about it, but there was a bundle of flaws that he could see with his Draconic Eyes.


Arges nodded like it was obvious.


“It should be. It’s the first fire that was brought from light when the world was trapped in darkness at the beginning of time. It’s also Prometheus’s treasure. That’s the only pride left of this smithy, with everything else broken.”


Yeon-woo’s gaze turned in its direction. The rest of the party looked surprised as well.


“Then this…..?


Arges nodded heavily.


“Luciel’s light. It’s fire from his Soulstone.”


“……!”


“……!”


Yeon-woo reflexively moved his hand to the pocket watch.


Click, clack—


The pocket watch vibrated at the tip of his fingers, like sparks shaking in the wind.


『Then let’s get to work.』


The oldest, Brontes, rolled up his sleeves and widened his eyes with determination.
