Rank 5 And The Snake Dowager

Gigantic and graceful, the phantom of a Kemoyin Serpent Emperor that held an elegance befitting a ruler appeared behind Leylin’s back. Large amounts of blood-coloured energy shrouded him. The serpent emperor snarled as a black hole appeared in front of it, sucking in the surrounding ice, earth, rocks, the remains and even the air.
  
Once large amounts of materials disappeared into its mouth, Leylin felt a powerful life force begin to circulate within his body. His body buzzed as first the skeleton, then his internal organs, blood, flesh, and finally the skin was regenerated. With the help of a powerful life force, the injuries on his body recovered at a frightening rate. 

‘Could this be the rumoured devouring ability of the Kemoyin Serpent Emperor?’ Leylin had a thought.

Immediately after, he felt his arm go numb, and the limb that had been broken off began to regenerate. In just ten or so seconds, the grave injury was completely recovered.
 
This speed left even Leylin in shock. ‘With this rate of recovery, I can recover quickly even in a battle against a Radiant Moon. I could even endure a Morning Star Arcane Art with just my body, immediately restoring myself afterwards! If the devouring ability is already so terrifying, what about that of control?’ he wondered.

The information about the Kemoyin Serpent Emperor had been lost in ancient times, and a large portion of the information that was gathered had been derived by the A.I. Chip from his bloodline memories. It was rather small, but just looking at the description he could tell that his control over Kemoyin Warlocks was great. Great enough, in fact, that if he commanded a Morning Star Kemoyin Warlock to die, the other party would not be able to resist at all.
 
*Hss—* Though he had completely recovered, the Giant Kemoyin Serpent figure at Leylin’s back was still unsatisfied. It abruptly broke through the layer of soil and soared into the air.  
 
A terrifying suction force appeared, and everything, be it living or otherwise, was dragged towards the black hole that had appeared in the serpent’s mouth.
 
The force spread out farther than even the bounds of the castle, radiating into the surroundings. Leylin could see several powerful creatures, many at the Crystal Phase, dragged from the sky by force as they disappeared into the black hole.
  
Practically every being in this world of ice automatically bowed their heads in respect and fear, trembling bodies paralysed under the suppression of the Kemoyin Serpent Emperor.
 
The accumulated life force was enormous, eventually forming a cocoon that covered Leylin. The Kemoyin Serpent Emperor at Leylin’s back continued to snarl unceasingly, and only after almost devouring the entirety of the central icy plains did it pull back into the cocoon of light, satisfied.
  
Leylin was undergoing a wondrous transformation within. Powerful bloodline energy fused with boundless life force, aiding Leylin in his bid to charge into rank 5.
  
He was becoming a rank 5 Warlock, a Radiant Moon! There were likely no more than twenty Radiant Moons in the entire central continent, second only to the Breaking Dawn Monarchs. It was also precisely due to the Radiant Moons in the Union that bloodline Warlocks still survived to this day.
  
On top of that, this event was even more significant for Leylin. He had finally moved past the bloodline shackles of the Giant Kemoyin Serpent, and now had the wherewithal to try to become a rank 5.
 
“I already reached the peak of Morning Star after fusing Fireplume into my point mass, so I already meet the requirements for the advancement. And now that the bloodline and technique that were holding me back are solved…” Leylin chuckled lightly.

With the cooperation of the bloodline of the rank 5 Kemoyin Serpent Emperor, his advancement was smooth. The fifth level of Kemoyin’s Pupil that the A.I. Chip had just deduced began to operate slowly.  

The point mass in his sea of consciousness buzzed as it revolved quickly, growing in density as the nebula surrounding it began another round of frantic expansion. Another layer of fine black runes emerged on top of it.

With the probing of the soul through the A.I. Chip, Leylin could see the truesoul located at the heart of the point mass beginning to evolve.  

Probing through his A.I. Chip, Leylin saw his truesoul at the heart of his point mass breaking through its limits at the peak of Morning Star, expanding to form the shape of a moon. It was glittering with a fine radiance that filled it with a sense of perfection.
  
Soul force was constantly poured in, causing the round moon to emanate a cool lustre. Once that was completed, his soul that was a size larger than that of normal Radiant Moon Magi had on it a layer of soul force that looked like a crescent moon that emitted an intense radiance.
  
‘I don’t have enough soul force to fill my truesoul. In fact, I don’t even have enough to fill half the volume… It seems like I’m a New Moon…’ Leylin suddenly came to an understanding of how Radiant Moons trained.
 
Ranks 4 to 6 involved the training of soul force. Morning Stars were still fumbling around without direction; it was when one advanced to Radiant Moon that they began true training.
 
The soul, which was in the shape of a moon showed how much soul force one had with its radiance. Rank 5 Magi had to train and fill it up. The different amounts of fullness represented the different stages of New Moon, Half Moon, and Full Moon Magi.

[Beep! Host’s soul force has been strengthened. Chip upgrade commencing… Time to completion: 4m24s.]  
  
With the advancement of his soul, the A.I. Chip was undergoing its upgrade immediately as well, having been fused into it. Perhaps it was because it had already gained quite a bit from Sky City, the advancement this time was quite rapid. In less than five minutes, it had completed its upgrade and rebooted.
  
The sounds of the A.I. Chip rang once more. [Beep! Host’s Kemoyin’s Pupil meditation technique has reached the fifth level. Advancing to rank 5 Warlock!]  

[Beep! Host has advanced to become a Radiant Moon Warlock. All statistics have been significantly strengthened, recalculating…]  
 
The familiar robotic voice seemed to be accompanied with a changed interface, the screen projected in Leylin’s mind even more solid than before.

‘Looks like the A.I. Chip has undergone a huge transformation!’ Leylin touched his chin.  
[Data collection complete. Display?] The A.I. Chip launched another prompt. Leylin nodded as he voiced his approval. The A.I Chip immediately projected the refreshed numbers before Leylin’s eyes.

[Leylin Farlier, Rank 5 Warlock. Bloodline: Kemoyin Serpent Emperor. Strength: 75, Agility: 61, Vitality: 137.5, Spiritual force: 1326.7, Magic power: 1326(Magic power is in synchronisation with spiritual force). Soul force: 133 (New Moon)]  
“It really deserves to be called the bloodline of the Kemoyin Emperor. The numbers were raised to such a huge extent!” Leylin’s expression was filled with glee. Not only had his spiritual force broken through 1000, his strength and agility which had not improved in a very long while had increased as well. His vitality had been raised by over 30 points, which was just terrifying!  
 
“I never expected that the growth of Kemoyin Warlocks would only become more frightful with time!” Leylin read through his stats and could not help but sigh.  

He felt the soul energy in his body that was as cool as water. It was soul force that had reached rank 5, and was of a higher quality than that at Morning Star, therefore having better effects. However, there was no elation in Leylin’s expression. 

“The issue of the bloodline shackles still has not been dealt with. I’ve only pushed it back by a rank, and this time there’s no such thing as raising the rank of my bloodline anymore!” Leylin gazed at the prompt at the bottom of the stats frame and turned grim.
  
[Host’s Kemoyin bloodline has reached limits of genes. Unable to advance further.]   
The A.I. Chip was plainly telling Leylin that after reaching the Kemoyin Serpent Emperor, he had reached the limits of his bloodline. At least Kemoyin Serpents had no way to advance to a higher realm.
  
An ominous feeling, like his future path had been cut off, emerged in Leylin’s mind…

*BOOM!* The cocoon of light in the world of ice burst apart, revealing Leylin within.

“Whatever it is, I’ve finally attained my goal in coming to the subterranean world this time. I just didn’t expect the remains of the Scorpion Man to be burnt up along with my opponent. It’s slightly regretful that I didn’t manage to obtain the coordinates to the Icy World…” Leylin sighed ruefully, turning into a black figure that disappeared into the void.

……  

The long majestic river that was the astral plane flowed on, many foreign worlds like the stars in the galaxy. They were a brightly coloured array, twinkling with varying lustres.

In one such world, full of flames and shadows, a boundless darkness formed a dense fog that completely covered the continent.

Numerous ancient, terrifying serpents grew and multiplied in this place, terrifying auras at Morning Star advancements appearing everywhere.
 
At the heart of the continent, the holy land of all snakes, Morning Star serpents could be seen everywhere. The closer one got to the centre, the more horrifying they became, as rank 5 and even ran 6 snakes flashed by on occasion.

In a gigantic spatial crack, a coiled ball of snake the size of a star revealed the alluring figure of the Snake Dowager. The moment Leylin reached rank 5, she opened a pair of misty eyes that seemed like water.
  
“I’d never thought that today, after the end of the ancient era, an Emperor would awaken among the Kemoyin race!” The eyes of the Snake Dowager seemed to penetrate across multiple worlds and the astral plane, locking onto the Magus World and a young Warlock.
 
To her, a Morning Star was just a basic soldier. Rank 5s and 6s were worthy of attention, and such a thing as the Kemoyin Serpent Emperor that could control the Giant Kemoyin Serpents was even more worthy of interest.

“The power of destiny is guiding you here…” The life and death of multiple worlds flashed across her beautiful eyes. Two mandara flowers, one bright and one dark, bloomed in them before dissipating.

Destiny, seen through the eyes of the Snake Dowager!

          1. One Warlock to rule them all, One Warlock to find them, One Warlock to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them

        1. First Kemoyin Warlock in history to have stepped on the Radiant Moon. I repeat. First Kemoyin Warlock in history to have stepped on the Radiant Moon.

    1. Looks like my supposition about the bloodline shackles was wrong, the shackles are legitimately going to suppress his strength at rank 5. He managed to jump two ranks with the sun child’s blood; I expect he’ll do something similar to face off against the Snake Dowager. As for reaching rank 6… I wonder if he’ll find a use for that Phoenix crystal previously acquired by Radiant Eye.

    1. His soul force was already rank 5. I think he broke the bloodline shackles but he still needs to a advance to the actual rank.

      1. He have not broken through the bloodline shackles yet. He said it himself last chapter it is an upgrade to the current bloodline not breaking the shackles. And he said in order to break the shackles he need to confront the Snake Dowager

    2. i think only his soul force that have reach rank 5 but not his rank in magus…… i think a magus reach rank 5 after he/she have fifth innate spell and he/she can use radian moon special technique, so i think leylin just need laydown his fifth innate spell now….. sorry for my terrible english

    3. Bloodline shackles means that the descendants will be controlled by the progenitor. So snake dowager will be able to control him, just like how arctic queen was able to control all the icy world creatures. To break the shackles, he will have to face the snake dowager.

      1. Not confirmed.
        It’s been hinted at that this might be the case, however, so far it has only been stated that Bloodline Shackles limit the maximum rank of Bloodline Creatures, and that Bloodline Creatures can be controlled by other Bloodline Creatures of the same origin that have purer Bloodlines.
        It has not yet been stated that you need to use a progenitor to break the Shackles.

          1. Yes, another time this was shown was Leylin’s low rank servant that brought Leylin to the Central Continent, he felt a strong sense of fear and compulsion to submit to Leylin as soon as they met.

        1. Meng Hao more ruthless than Leylin? Holy shit, I think I just created a Divine Ability called Laugh At Your Delusion.
          .
          Meng Hao has a weakspot for people who’ve been good to him. He’s very loyal to his family, his wife, his old flame and even his old world. He’d go so far as to sacrifice himself for them. That’s being selfless, not ruthless. Leylin, however, kicks people to the curb whenever they become a liability to him, or just plain outlive their usefulness. You could devote yourself to him and sacrifice everything for him and he’d just pat you on the head and be on his way. Leylin is way more ruthless than Meng Hao.

          1. That’s true, since english is not my main language I didn’t get the meaning of ruthless well enough, I though it would be more like ” Pissing me of I kill you on the point f**k consequences ” but that’s not really what it means it’s true

      1. Meng Hao more ruthless than Leylin? Holy shit, I think I just created a Divine Ability called Laugh At Your Delusion.

        1. No, he has a choice lol. He could go to the purgatory world and well, mate with anyone he wants 😀 He doesn’t have to make the decision in the magus world. But I think he will give some seeds to Freya, since he feels slightly indebted to her.

          1. Leylin can also transform into a snake and then do it or he could directly do it with the Snake dowager.

  1. Question to those who are plebs/casual readers? (no spoilers PLZ)

    Do you think Leylin has broken his bloodline shackle entirely, that is he can now freely advance OR do you think he is now shackled to this kemoyin emperor bloodline and merely traded one prison cell for a better one ?

    1. No, the bloodline shackle is still there. What Leylin did is simply evolve his own kimoyin bloodline thus achieving rank 5 kimoyin serphant emperor, but this is the absolute limit he can’t evolve further to rank 6 & above before breaking the bloodline shackle.

      The bloodline shackle originated from the Snake Dowager/ mother of 10 thousand snake, a rank 7-8 creature. To break the bloodline shackle, Leylin need to empower himself before going to the purgatory world and confront the snake dowager or steal something from her. Considering the plot so far, this maybe the most likely how thing is going to be.

        1. Nope, they didn’t told us, but considering rank 9 is the strongest, I doubt that the Snake Dowager is rank 9 considering her loss in the Shadow World. The Female Bronze Giant was rank 7 and was easily killed by her so we can assume she’s rank 8.

    2. “[Kemoyin Serpent Emperor: A rare evolved form of the Giant Kemoyin Serpent. Possess a great strength and magical ability. Having broken through their original limits to enter a higher level, these creatures rule colonies of Kemoyin Serpents. Rank 5.”

      He max out at rank 5 now so yeah a new prison .

    3. I think he has just evolved one step. The shackles are still there for now. He would still have to listen to more powerful snakes like snake dowager.

      But on the other hand, after evolving once, he now knows the method to evolve again. He just needs more power before he can try.

      First WW post by the by.

      1. Interesting… I assume the same thing but I am going to bet the other way, only because this bloodline shackle seems to be a construct. Each mage or warlock regardless of who they are still faces the problems of bottlenecks, the bloodline shackle or limit is a limitation of the soul connected to the bloodline of the divine beast one originally was associated with by birth or inheritance.

        So my bet is although he will be limited by the new bloodline and encounter a similar problem the fact that he evolved his bloodline and also created a means to transcend the limitation of his current meditation technique will mean Leylin will not be tethered by the bloodline shackle anymore. Perhaps I am 100% wrong but we shall see. Only I know he will want to be 100% liberated by it, but I would not be surprised to see this concept of the bloodline shackle expanded…. In the same way morning star power was by number of stars and so forth…

        He has already proven the capacity to evolve his own bloodline and thus his own soul tied to it… What was the limit has opened up to a new path, although for Leylin to be completely satisfied the snake dowenger will probably need to have no influence over him whatsoever, so in this sense even if he could advance to rank 6 or 7 through evolving his bloodline Leylin would still be not be satisfied.

      2. Right he just needs to suppress a rank 6 mage with a special bloodline to evolve again. I think he is going to help Freya become a Morning Star with the Arewn or whatever’s blood.

  2. So glad I waited for these two chapters to come out before reading!! Finally rank 5! Can’t wait to see the look on the other morning stars faces when they see him 😂😂 I hope he can help Freya advance too, she is still rank 3 that gap is getting ridiculous.

    1. I wanna just read about Zenga’s reaction, I just need it to be eventful… You know… Leylin is certainly doomed and then WHAT ?! Just so we get 100% of the possible value of his butthurt.

  3. These most recent chapters have been epic…. They have not been rushed, but they have been full of eventful encounters and developments. The ‘Ice World’ storyline has been my fav so far, how about for you guys and girls ?

  4. I think Wisdom tree’s method to breakthrough bloodline shackles is to split soul, just like how Linley had done, that’s why Leylin can’t do this yet. I remember Linley’s one of the clone is also limited but his other clone can cultivate better

  5. So, any bets on how Leylin will convince the Snake Dowager to remove his shackles?
    The Kemoyin bloodline has now reached its absolute limit, and won’t advance no matter how much bloodline force it absorbs. Until the shackles disappear, he’ll be limited to Rank 5 Warlock, which is basically an ant. A direct meeting means putting himself at her mercy.

    My bet: He’ll gear himself up with absolute plot armor, find her, give her some bacon strips, and ask her nicely.

  6. Thanks for the chapter OMA and Theo! Uh-oh he’s caught the attention of the big boss. Wonder if she’ll be able to compel him if he reaches Breaking Dawn. I’m guessing at peak Radiant Moon he can make use of the knowledge from the Tree to break that shackle once and for all.

  7. Have faith AI Chip, gain eternal life. When AI Chip arrives, who dares to cause strife!
    Leylin, one step closer to becoming progenitor of the Warlock race!
    Thank you for the chapter!
