Technically speaking, the Blood Father of the Spirit World and the Tree of Life could be viewed as Star Behemoths as well.
After all, they were both Void Spirits that had developed fleshly bodies.
Void Spirits were wisps of awareness that had been separated from the origins. They were combinations of energy and magical principles.
At the beginning, Void Spirits hadn’t been vested with fleshly bodies.
After they left the chaos according to the instructions of the origins, they would fuse their own imprints, energy, and the flesh aura essence their origins had obtained from the origin of life through trade, and create new species such as the Devils and the Netherspirits.
Void Spirits were merely a medium.
However, if they used the flesh aura essence and imprints on themselves, they would make themselves Star Behemoths.
Since the Blood Father of the Spirit World and the Tree of Life were Void Spirits that had been separated from the Sea of Life, the flesh aura essence and imprints the Sea of Life had provided for them understandably exceeded those it had provided for the other Void Spirits.
For that reason, the two of them had developed fleshly bodies as soon as they had left the chaos.
Neither the Blood Father of the Spirit World nor the Tree of Life had gone against the will of the origin of life at first. They had followed its every instruction to create new species and spread lives through the realms in the Spirit World.
The Star Behemoths, however, were infamous ones that had turned against their origins from the start of the Primal Era. They had not only fed on titans and dragons, but consumed realms to provide themselves with power. It was only natural that they had become enemies to the Blood Father of the Spirit World and the Tree of Life.
Later, as the titans, dragons, and Ancientbeasts had grown stronger, the three major races in the Void World had risen to prominence, and the Blood Father of the Spirit World and the Tree of Life had accumulated more power, most of the Star Behemoths that had terrorized the three worlds had been killed.
The Star Behemoths’ decline at the end of the Primal Era had been a joint effort.
The three major races in the Void World, the Ancientspirits in the Spirit World, and the Icespirits, Firespirits, and Lightningspirits in the Mortal World had all made their contribution.
Only by joining together had these forces, which represented different origins in the chaos, finally eradicated the traitors.
After the extinction of the Star Behemoths, these species had stepped into the spotlight and become the masters of the three worlds.
That marked the beginning of the Desolate Antiquity Era.
The conflicts between the Blood Father of the Spirit World and the Tree of Life and that attack the Tree of Life had launched against the Blood Father of the Spirit World had taken place in this era that had come after the Primal Era.
While the majority of the Star Behemoths had perished, a few of them had masked their flesh auras and survived in areas where the three worlds bordered one another, like the Doomed Star Sea, the Dead Star Sea, the Silent Star Sea, and other secluded areas in the starry river.
They were represented by the Chaos Behemoth, the Dark Behemoth, and the Rampage Behemoth.
Eventually, the Tree of Life had won its battle against the Blood Father of the Spirit World in the Desolate Antiquity Era.
However, the Tree of Life had sustained severe injuries, and hadn’t been able to refine the life imprints it had taken from the Blood Father of the Spirit World immediately after its victory. This had made it weak for a long period of time.
During that time, the Bone Emperor, the Dark King, and Grand Monarch Heavenly Spirit had emerged in the Void World successively. They had launched multiple invasions from the Void World while the Tree of Life had been in recovery.
With its Life Detection bloodline talent, the Tree of Life had found the dormant Rampage Behemoth, the Dark Behemoth, and the Chaos Behemoth successively in the border regions between the three worlds and other secluded regions. It had promised them that as long as they helped it defend against the paragons from the Void World, they would have a place to themselves in the Spirit World.
The Rampage Behemoth was the first to be persuaded. Awaking from its slumber, it had gone to fend off the Bone Emperor, who had been in his prime.
Both of them had sustained fatal injuries in battle, and died soon afterwards.
The Tree of Life, who had grasped the profound truths of life, had promised that even if the Rampage Behemoth died, it would be able to resurrect it.
However, the Tree of Life had not only gone back on its word, but it had also taken away the Rampage Behemoth’s residual power with Life Drain.
By doing this, it had largely recovered the power it had consumed in its battle against the Blood Father of the Spirit World.
Later, when the Dark King of the Devils had invaded the Spirit World, the Tree of Life had persuaded the Dark Behemoth to go stop him. However, the Dark King had slain the Dark Behemoth, and transcended with its death. Then, as a mighty paragon, he had marched into the Spirit World once again.
That time, the Tree of Life had persuaded the Chaos Behemoth with the same ploy.
By joining together, it and the Chaos Behemoth had annihilated the Dark King.
However, the Chaos Behemoth had also been reduced to a colossal corpse in the depths of the Shatter Battlefield that had never awoken again.
It had only ended so miserably for it because the Tree of Life had taken away its immense life force when it had been weak, as it had done with the Rampage Behemoth.
By the time Grand Monarch Heavenly Spirit of the Netherspirits had become a paragon and invaded the Spirit World, it had not only recovered from its battle against the Blood Father of the Spirit World, but it had also accumulated a tremendous amount of flesh power from the Rampage Behemoth, the Chaos Behemoth, and the Dark Behemoth, and become the strongest existence the three worlds had ever seen!
As the result of its battle against Grand Monarch Heavenly Spirit, Grand Monarch Heavenly Spirit had died while it had only withered for a short period of time, before coming back as its second-generation self.
That marked the arrival of its reign in the Desolate Antiquity Era.
With all three paragons from the Void World and the Star Behemoths that had been hiding in secluded areas in the three worlds dead because of its ploys, there wasn’t anyone that had posed a threat to it anymore.
Therefore, it had reached its hands to the Mortal World. Eliminating the Icespirits, the Firespirits, and the Lightningspirits, it had quickly occupied the Mortal World.
As for the Void World, the existence of a large number of devil plants and spirit plants had thrown the lives of the three major races into disorder.
Because of that, the three major races had entered a prolonged decline, where they hadn’t seen another paragon rise again to lead the Void World back to its glory.
If the weaker origins hadn’t worked together to restore the awareness of the Blood Father of the Spirit World and created humanity, it would have ruled the three worlds and determined the fates of all lives as a transcendent existence to this day.
The Rampage Behemoth had awakened its soul imprints after Nie Tian had reanimated it. It was only natural that it hated it to the bone.
It had made tempting promises to have the Rampage Behemoth come out of its dormancy and fight the Bone Emperor, who had been at the peak of his strength. Eventually, it had died killing the Bone Emperor.
However, not only had the Tree of Life broken its promise to bring it back to life, but it had even taken away its residual flesh power and refined its exploded remains.
How could it not hate it like poison?
In the dark land.
Thick, emerald green branches of the Tree of Life pierced into the Rampage Behemoth’s body like divine thorns and heavenly lightning bolts.
Like numerous pumps, the emerald green branches started channeling thick blood from the Rampage Behemoth at an alarming rate.
As powerful as the Rampage Behemoth was, it was on the verge of breaking.
It let out one agonized wail after another.
Seeing the Rampage Behemoth’s enormous form shrivel bit by bit, the experts of various species that were attacking the Tree of Life together made attempts to sever those gigantic branches.
At the same time, the black tortoise, who carried the Dark Behemoth’s bloodline, was saddened by what was happening to the Rampage Behemoth, knowing that its ancestor had died at the hands of the Tree of Life as well.
At this moment, Dong Li, who was wielding the Dark Aureole and two dark stones, also learned from the legacies that had been passed onto her that both the Dark King and the Dark Behemoth had died because of the Tree of Life.
“Now I see it. This hideous tree is the cause of all disasters, and the source of all evil.”
