Book 18, Highgod – Chapter 7, Parting Words

“One of the five Kings?” Linley couldn’t help but narrow his eyes. Each of the five Kings of the Gebados Planar Prison was a supreme expert. Bluefire was one of the five Kings. Since Odin was titled the ‘Vile King’, on par with Bluefire, then Odin’s power was definitely at an astonishing level as well.

“The deaths of the Boss and of Second Bro have to do with him?” Linley couldn’t help but ask.

“Yes, Third Bro! You know that our Second Bro, George, was very talented in magic. In addition, he was fairly diligent in his training…a century after you left, he reached the Saint-level. He should have had eternal life, but…”

Reynolds’ face turned dark. Clearly, this filled his heart with boundless rage. However, Reynolds forced it down, so that he could continue to speak. “The first time Odin attacked, he struck at the imperial capital of the Yulan Empire. With just a flip of his hand…that Odin destroyed half of the imperial capital. In addition, he had a group of subordinates, all of whom were Deities!”

“Odin issued an order. Everyone within the imperial capital at or above the Saint level was to be killed. No one was to be spared!”

“Second Bro, ‘George’, was killed there.” Reynolds continued to speak, but as he did, his tears began to fall.

Although Linley had mentally prepared himself, he still felt his head go dizzy. He still clearly remembered how of the four brothers, George was amiable, good-tempered, and yet always willing to share in the shouldering of any burdens. “Second Bro died, just like that?” Linley couldn’t believe it. George, who had always had such distant, lofty goals, had died?

How could Linley swallow his rage, after his close friend had been killed like this?

“Odin…must die.” Linley’s face was like iron.

“Big Bro.” Wharton said hurriedly.

“Third Bro.” Reynolds hurriedly called out as well.

“Reynolds, you, you said…” A trembling voice rang out. Delia, standing next to Linley, stared at Reynolds nervously, her eyes filled with fear and worry. “You said that everyone at or above the Saint level in the imperial capital was killed? What about my elder brother? How is my elder brother?”

In the Leon clan, aside from Delia, the only person to reach the Saint level was Dixie.

Over the course of two thousand years, those previous family members of hers had turned to dust long ago.

Delia truly hoped to see her elder brother, Dixie, on this return. The genius elder brother who had always taken care of her.

“Dixie?” Reynolds was stunned.

“Right, my brother! Is my brother still alive?” Delia’s entire body was trembling.

“Delia…” Linley couldn’t help but take Delia’s hand in his own. He could clearly sense how her hand was shaking.

“Dixie is dead!” Wharton said. “The ten Saints who were at the imperial capital were all killed, and Dixie was one of them! Odin and his subordinates were too vicious, and he even had Highgods serving him. There was no way such a powerful force could be resisted at all. How could any Saints flee?”

Delia’s face instantly turned pale.

“My brother died?” Delia lowered her head, two streams of clear tears falling down her face.

“Delia..” Linley said hurriedly.

Delia suddenly opened her eyes, grinding her teeth. “Odin. I must kill him!” Delia turned to look at Linley. “Linley…I must kill him, I must!!!”

“We must. We must.” Linley felt his own killing intent surge as well.

“No, don’t.” Taylor was absolutely frantic. “Mother, Father, don’t go! This Odin is truly too powerful. Back then, Odin even attacked Dragonblood Castle. It took Lord Beirut making an appearance to stop him. Lord Beirut said…that even in the Higher Planes, this Odin would be considered a top-tier expert.”

“Right.” Reynold said frantically as well. “Third Bro, no matter what, don’t put yourself at risk.”

“I remember Lord Beirut said something about a Seven Star Fiend. That this Odin could be considered a Seven Star Fiend.” Sasha said hurriedly as well.

It was evident that they clearly remembered the scene of how Lord Beirut had appeared when Odin had attacked. They, too, were filled with the utmost of hatred towards Odin, but Lord Beirut had solemnly warned them of how powerful this Odin was, and that they would die if they fought him.

“Seven Star Fiend?” Linley’s gaze flashed with cold light.

The nearby Bebe said angrily, “Even if he is an Asura, he will still die!”

Reynolds and the others didn’t understand the meaning of this. They didn’t understand what the terms ‘Seven Star fiend’ and ‘Asura’ entailed.

“Right. Boss Yale?” Linley suddenly thought of Yale.

Yale was a member of the Dawson Conglomerate. Odin had unified an empire, but what did Yale have to do with that?

“Third Bro, first calm down. Don’t act rashly out of anger.” Reynolds said hurriedly. As Reynolds and Wharton saw it, their biggest concern was that Linley would go insane and go try and make trouble for Odin. As they saw it…although Linley was a genius, he had only trained for two millennia, while that Odin was someone who was far more monstrously powerful than even the now-deceased Adkins.

“Fine. I won’t act impetuously. Speak, hurry.” Although Linley said these words, rage was blazing within his chest.

The death of Second Bro as well as that of Delia’s elder brother…they had to be avenged!

“Fine. I’ll speak.” Reynolds shut his eyes. He took a deep breath before opening them again, but tears began to uncontrollably appear within them nonetheless. “When Boss Yale was young, he didn’t work hard in his training, and he was also the least talented of us four brothers…and so he became stuck as an eighth rank magus. However, this didn’t prevent his becoming as the Chairman of the Conglomerate.”

Linley nodded slightly.

He remembered that Yale had once said that he dreamed of becoming the Chairman of the Dawson Conglomerate and swallowing up the other two trading guilds, becoming the single largest trading guild of the entire Yulan continent.

“That year, although the Yulan Empire and the O’Brien Empire were restored to power, they had too few experts and were too weak. In the entire Yulan continent…only the Baruch Empire could be considered a powerhouse.” Reynolds said slowly. “With our help, the Dawson Conglomerate naturally expanded nonstop, moving as easily as a fish does in water. The other two trading guilds were squeezed and nibbled down. In the end, they completely collapsed and were swallowed up by the Dawson Conglomerate. Boss Yale accomplished his goal and was extremely happy. Myself and Second Bro, along with Boss Yale, even had a special get together and celebration for this event.”

A drifting look was in Reynolds eyes.

“That year, the three of us celebrated together. We even sighed that it was unfortunate that you, Third Bro, weren’t here. Otherwise, the four of us would’ve been able to have a good get-together.”

Linley couldn’t help but feel a deeply buried part of his heart tremble. It was the deep recesses of his heart, where the love he bore for his brothers lay.

“When the three of us were together, everything was fine. But…after we separated and went about our own business, not long afterwards the ‘Vile King’ Odin appeared. He first showed off his brutal, domineering, unstoppable power by forcefully uniting the various empires into his ‘Odin Empire’. Reynolds said in a low voice. “But Odin wasn’t satisfied with just that. He took a fancy to the Dawson Conglomerate! Although the Dawson Conglomerate was just a merchant conglomerate, as the largest one in the continent…it had astonishingly great power secreted throughout the continent.”

Linley’s face became ugly to behold.

In the past, when the Dawson Conglomerate was just one of three major trading guilds, it was already very powerful. By the time it swallowed up the other two…Linley could imagine how formidable the hidden power of the Dawson Conglomerate was.

“One of Odin’s clones trains in the Edicts of Death.” Reynolds said somberly. “He easily took control over several major empires because he was able to spiritually dominate quite a few critical members of the various empires, and so he was able to easily unify the nations. As for Boss Yale…his soul was dominated as well.”

Linley couldn’t help but feel pain in his heart.

Boss Yale had been dominated once in the past as well. That time, Linley had rescued Boss Yale, but…this time, he wasn’t there. Nobody was there to rescue him.

“In a short year, with Boss Yale’s cooperation, the management structure of the Dawson Conglomerate was completely changed and replaced with Odin’s people. It can be said…that aside from Boss Yale, not a single member of the Dawnson clan remained, out of all the important, high-level members of the Dawson Conglomerate. They were all replaced by Odin’s men.” Reynolds’ voice was hoarse.

Reynolds suddenly stared at Linley, letting out a grief-stricken laugh. “Third Bro, do you know why Odin is known as the Vile King?”

Linley was stunned.

“why?” Linley said.

“Because he truly is vile! Not only does he have all sorts of evil techniques, he himself is an evil, vile person!” Reynolds was unable to control his voice. “After the Dawson Conglomerate fell under his control, that bastard actually controlled Yale and made him personally kill one member of the Dawson clan after another. These people included Boss Yale’s son, his wife, his descendants, his brothers…they all died. And Boss Yale personally killed them all.”

Linley’s heart grew cold.

“Boss Yale no longer held any more value for him, but he didn’t just kill Boss Yale. He let Boss Yale regain his mind and his freedom!” Reynolds said in a low voice.

“This…that, that bastard! He has to die!” The nearby Ina couldn’t help but growl out as well.

Linley’s face was ashen.

“When Boss Yale regained his senses, he knew what he had done. Perhaps only an extremely few members of the Dawson clan were still alive; those who were in very distant, remote regions. The central members of the clan, however…Boss Yale’s relatives…he had killed them all, sparing none. Boss Yale was in such agony, he went insane…”

Reynolds’ body was trembling slightly.

Linley already felt as though countless knives were stabbing into his heart.

“But that Odin sealed up Boss Yale’s mageforce, and then bound him and strung him up on a tree in the Odin Palace.” Reynolds sobbed, his tears pouring forth. “When bored, Odin would often go sit beneath the tree, drinking wine and enjoying the services of the palace made. When he listened to Boss Yale’s insane curses, he seemed to rather enjoy it…as though he enjoyed Boss Yale’s madness, his despair!”

Linley felt as though his head was about to explode.

Vile?

This wasn’t just ‘vile’. This was utterly perverted! Odin was a pervert!

After having stolen away the Dawson Conglomerate, which Yale had worked for all his life, he then had Yale kill his own relatives, then gave Yale his mind back! And Odin enjoyed listening to Yale’s curses, enjoyed Yale’s madness…

“When I learned this, I frantically hurried to that place.” Reynolds said bitterly. “Boss Yale barely had any life left in him. Odin was too powerful; he could’ve killed me with a single finger. So all I could do was secretly use my divine sense to enter Boss Yale’s mind and speak with him!”

“By then, Boss Yale’s mind was at the point of collapse! I am unable to imagine what sort of mental torment he must have felt during the time he had been hung up there. All I knew was that Boss Yale, ever so graceful and vigorous and carefree, was at the point of collapse.”

Linley was so angry, he could no longer speak. He just stared at Reynolds.

“When I sent out my divine sense, Boss Yale reacted, very slightly. But he just repeated the words, ‘I have sinned!’ ‘I have sinned!’” Reynolds’ voice trembled. “He begged me to kill him. He was hung there and his mageforce was sealed; he was unable to kill himself. He wanted me to kill him! To release him from it all!”

Linley’s body shook.

“I agreed.” Reynolds said in a low voice. “Boss Yale was already insane. I had never seen him like that before.”

“Before he died, Boss Yale told me that Odin was extremely strong, far more powerful than the last Highgod, Adkins. Afterwards, he said one thing to me…‘Fourth Bro, no matter what, you and Third Bro are not to avenge me. Do not try to avenge me!” Reynolds’ face was covered with tears now.

Linley just stood there, stunned.

“You and Third Bro, no matter what, are not to avenge me. Do not try to avenge me!!!”

Boss Yale’s dying shout seemed to echo in his ears. “BOOM!” Linley’s mind was utterly blank, but he felt as though an explosion had gone off within it.

“Aaaaaaah!” Linley knelt down on the ground, agonized, releasing a growling, agonized cry from his throat.

“Third Bro.” Reynolds went to go lift Linley up.

He could imagine how agonized Linley was…because when Reynolds had seen Boss Yale and what terrible shape he had been in, Reynolds was utterly agonized as well. He had even killed Yale with his own hands, so as to grant Yale release.

Linley, kneeling there on the ground, lifted his head up. His eyes were red, and his entire body was shaking. He growled out, “Odin!!! I will definitely make him go insane from agony as well! I will make him go hysterical!!! Make him die!!!” Linley’s voice seemed to have been ground out from every single tooth in his mouth.

  1. I knew that ITE would do something like this. There had to be come revenge somewhere to make linley either go destruction, or merge elements.

    It only makes sense, considering we know he has talent, but he hasn’t pursued it yet. With this Evil vile Odin guy, im sure linley, in his rage will subconsciously easily give enlightenment in regards to the laws of destruction, all while figuring out the best way to “Destroy” Odin.

      1. I would think so
        hes like an asura + black stone space will less restriction so he can encompass the hole continent right … and just be like walk in the park
        oops i stepped on an odin shaped ant

      2. Yes, he can already annihilate This odin, most likely. But then again, might not be that simple, he is a king just like bluefire, and wasnt bluefire ALMOST a paragon? linley isnt really almost yet, but because of the specail ways he utilizes his blackstone space he can become alot more powerful then normal. and this odin seems to train in the edicts of death, which means strong soul attacks, even if linely is high god now, soul attacks are still his weakness, his ring is fixed yet. So chance mutation?

        1. No dude. Linley weakness WAS soul because as a god, his soul was simply too weak. Now he has a damn powerful soul plus the coilling dragon ring; And never ONCE wa bluefire compared to a paragon, just said to have fused many laws.

    1. I think Linley will never learn the way of destruction.
      There seems to be a special connection between fire, water, earth, wind (the weapon beirut made out of these types of godsparks fused -> had a power up).
      Linley probably will somehow get a soul mutation or another way to to use them together.
      They are just too matched, the destruction one would mess up the concept:
      there is the powerfull linley with the combined 4 elements and a crappy (realativley) weak destruction linley 😛

  2. Now checking the important facts (for me anyways):

    Odin is supposedly just a 7star fiend – Linley can kill a bunch of these at once even as a god.
    he is from gebados – chances of him having anything worth speaking of (sovereigns gear, sov’s might etc) are null and void.
    has likely never left the yulan plane (before it was called as such) before being jailed and thus doesn’t know the fearsomeness of the 4DBC.
    Has royally pissed off linley – well known to send Linley power level over 9000

    linley has:
    sovereign-reinforced body
    insanely powerful soul now at high god rank
    black prison formed of 3 fused mysteries + special concept + specific usage of many rays to reinforce the power (this was an elder killer even back at god level and now he is high god)
    THE godspark weapon mirage- Beirut’s finest creation yet and sharp as a mofo 😛
    sovereign grade soul protection – on the speedy path to a complete fix.

    Odin… you are so screwed… to the extent that you will become the first 7star fiend to experience a slow and agonizing death of having your body shaved away by millions upon millions of cuts until you run out of the power to regenerate your body and when you are nothing more than a head, your soul will be killed directly, ending every single clone you have in your body ensuring utter destruction.

    I honestly wish that this is a prelude to Linley merging 4 elements and making a breakthrough in destruction 😛

    1. I hope he finds Beirut for a Spirit leech or Forces Odin into a Servant contract so he is forced to be a “toy” for Linley in Infernal realm much like Phusro was to Elquin . Just to torture him with servitude.

    2. Except Odin is a Edict of Death Highgod, 7-Star to boot, and a King like Bluefire so prepare to expect his power level comparable to an Asura or Paragon as well of couple hidden clone bodies. Furthermore, possibility he only take action after Bluefire left to take his punishment in Tomb of Gods, indicated he very good in hiding from Highgod as well. I think this fight will be very difficult one!

      1. There is a huge chasm (10x at least) between 7* Fiend, (average) Asura and Paragon. You can think about it as numbers of fusions, respectively: four, five and six. Of course, there are natural talents, etc, which change things such as Beirut’s insane body toughness, Linley’s black stone, etc.

    3. What?! I mean the way George and Dixie died cannot be compared to how Yale died! He was my favourite brother and Odin made him KILL all his family, by his own hand kills me! Vile and perverted are not enough to describe Odin Linely. I say monstrous, insane and demonic are more suitable words. T_T

      R.I.P Yale, George and Dixie

      1. Both are accurate. His body is equivalent to a highgod artifact in strength, but the way his body gained that level of power was through absorbing a drop of blood from the Azure Dragon Sovereign.

          1. the fact that his body was reformed after taking in the golden drop and then strengthened by the absorbed sov’s might. additionally each time he uses a sov’s might it gets a bit stronger as was explained to him before (just not by enough to warrant errant wasteful consumption)

            so his body was compared to a highgod artifact, but was also mentioned as having broken such a thing before with just his scales and his fusion attack, I believe.

            basically it’s adding in the bloodline power-boost he gets once he dragonforms including the insane defence it now possesses (since he even is capable of forming armour on top of it using his fusions if necessary)

            but in that big list I forgot to name the black rock as included xD which is another point in his favour 😛

            All in all, it’s impossible for Odin to be a serious threat or even a threat in Linley’s eyes. And to me I just want to see him suffer… a lot!!

  3. Hi Ren… Is there a way you can place a certain target donation $$$$ and if we reached that target $$$ you will release 2 to 3 chapters per day???

    What do you say guys???
    We can work together to reach the target donation right?

    1. its not about money right now… Boss Ren have to settle in first, then everything will go back to normal…. train the “edict of patience” first my friend…

  4. a lot of us really is expecting blood, and death… but after reading this chapter, i really understand that… i really want Odin to have a slow agonizing death for doing that to Boss Yale….

  5. Linley should go to this Odin guy’s place and pull him in a stage while applying his gravity to make him kneel while everyone of his subordinates stare at him while linley makes them declare an embarrassing speech like ‘im a perverted worthless scum’ while he tortures him infront of his family(since he’s probably emperor with many wives and kids). That would be double torture mentally and physically plus he’ll lose all his face which this deities all care about so much.

  6. I’m sure everyone is full of rage about ‘poor’ Boss Yale – but frankly he got a great ride all thru his life, just for being roomies with 3 other bright students. There was no reason for him to swallow up the other 2 merchant conglomerates, he had more than enough financial & political power – and never had enough personal power 😛

    But no, he got help from Yulan & Baruch empires to go finish off his competition and probably had some of them killed / or they suicided after losing everything. Getting sole merchant power also was a major reason he got noticed by Odin, so its like he prepared his own karmic retribution 😡

    Unlike him, I do pity George & Dixie – they were both sincere hard working people who put in great efforts to become Saints and didn’t try to bully anyone either. No idea why a 7 Star Fiend- level Highgod would order lowly Saints to be massacred though, it seems like a plot point for Linley to get angry. Why wouldn’t Odin rather keep Saints as his servants, the way he’s probably used to from Gebados? Or, now that his own flunkies advanced to being demigods/gods over time, give them Saints as 2nd tier servants of their own!

    1. U act like Yale didn’t work hard to unite them, yes he did get help but it wouldn’t have been possible if he didn’t work hard. And as far as u putting Yale as the bad guy I don’t get why what’s so wrong in having ambition. For example compare Yale and Dixie. Yale wants to unite the merchant conglomerates which equates to having power. Dixie was at a saint and wants to be a diety which also equates to power. Yale seized the merchant conglomerates because it was his dream and he has ambition. You would blame Linley if he didn’t try to get stronger and it is the same in this situation just different circumstances

    2. What’s wrong with getting more financial power? Your acting like its a crime to do such a thing.

      Linley created an empire, so is that wrong? What the hell do you think a business is? It is a competition, where you got to take over the enemies. Yale worked hard and got financial power. He didn’t deserve anything bad happening to him.

      By your logic, it’s okay if Linley ends other peoples lives because they are enemies, but Yale can’t destroy enemy businesses? Owning a business is a form of power and being in a constant battle.

      Yale did nothing worse than any person in the series. The worst thing about him was being a player, nothing else.

  7. I think this vile king arse deserve to get ripped apart. Or maybe stomped to death. If he’s only as strong as a 7 star fiend then linley could definitely owned him.

  8. Oh man, only one chapter is torture when the revenge lust gets started…
    I will persevere! Hnnngngg!!

    Odin isn’t nearly as cool as I remember from the mythologies!
    And are we actually going to see Linley torture someone? Normally he’s the kind of guy to just kill… but ya know, he’s pretty mad 0.0

  9. The first answer Reynolds gave about how the vile king was named reminded me of this http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xqwgcb_blackadder-the-wise-woman_fun .

    Also Delia seems to be getting ahead of herself. I could understand it if she said we must kill him, but I must kill him? Unless Linley severely crippled him (and I do think that he must channel his inner Chu Feng for this fight), Delia wouldn’t be able to take 10 seconds of fighting, much less kill him.

    Reynolds must have also suffered a stroke or something, because you don’t go, you must not try to take revenge on him, but let me tell you with excruciating details how he tortured to the point of madness a person you treasured as much as a real brother.

  10. Thanks!
    No—-! My favourite characters…!! -sobs loudly-
    kill…no…torture him….he had better suffer, and feel the worst pain imaginable…!
    -cries uncontrollably- dixie..yale…george…
    ahaha,they don’t know how strong linley is now, and bebe too….! odin…and everyone else guilty…had better die!

  11. I find it funny how we now hear “seven star fiend? That’s chump change” now compared to ” WOah the top tier expert the Seven Star FIEND!” From a few books back. Its rather funny I gotta say.

    1. It’s basically the plot of this series… Do you remember the rank 6 warriors, rank 9, saints, peak saints, gods, highgods, 7 star fiends, asuras, paragons and sovereings? (I jumped mages)

  12. Lots of folk mentioning Linley gaining insights/soul mutation. Anyone have any idea how a soul mutate becomes a sovereign? Would it be like haeru becoming a deity where he could use either a wind or darkness spark do you think? Though would he not then lose his insights into other elements making the mutation pointless? I’m not too sure how this works or if it has even been clearly explained yet.

    1. You can just let one of your clones fuse with a Sovereign Spark of fitting element and use it’s power just like original body uses Divine Power of Divine Clones, i guess.
