Mechanical God Emperor Chapter 152
152 – Devil Viscount Gaddesdon
Cordelia said with a sweet smile: “Little Sister Carolina, if you had hidden in your Saint Rose Warlock Tower, then I wouldn’t had any way of taking a hold of you. But I knew that you would come to watch the battles of the Warlock convention’s first day. This gave me the opportunity to easily eliminate you together with little sister Clarissa. As long as I get rid of the both of you, then Rose Garden will be in my pocket.”
Carolina said chilly: “Freaks like devils, most of them are fickle and treacherous. How will you resist the under world’s allied forces after you kill us? They aren’t trustworthy, the’ll definitely seize this opportunity and attack Rose Garden. Alone, you can’t hold Rose Garden.”
Rose Garden held a large amount of Warlock Tower. Once they jointly launched a grand defensive array, then they could even somewhat resist a Starry Sky Warlock rank expert and might even suppress the opponent. But without enough Warlock guards, there was no way to display the might of the grand defensive array.
Once Cordelia killed Carolina and Clarissa, she would have to purge their direct subordinates. With a purge of this scale, Rose Garden’s strength would at least be reduced to two thirds.
The under world’s allied forces would never let such a weak Rose Garden slip past their fingers. After all, Rose Garden had Divine rank secret treasures.
In the past, because Rose Garden was too powerful, no one had dared attack it. Attacking it was tantamount to seeking death. Once Rose Garden became weak, there would be countless hungry wolves pouncing on it and tear it into shreds.
Cordelia said with a confident smile: “I’ve been secretly believing in His Lordship Devil Viscount Gaddesdon from the sixth layer of the Ancient Demonic Plane. With his demonic might, no one would ever be able to invade Rose Garden.”
“A Devil Viscount!!”
After hearing this, the complexions of every Warlock present had changed greatly.
The Ancient Demonic Plane was a terrifying plane capable of contending against the World of Warlocks. Only the founding Emperors of the Eight Great Warlock Dynasties had ever managed to subdue it.
In the Ancient Demonic Plane, there were countless powerful ancient devils, ancient fiends and some formidable ancient being from the Demon Clan. Among the ancient devils, Devil Viscounts were powerful beings equivalent to gods with the weakest divine power.
If a Devil Viscount was to descend to Turandot Subcontinent via its true body, it then could single-handedly kill all of Turandot Subcontinent’s experts and easily capture the lairs of the six great Warlock groups. Even if it only descended via an embodiment, there would’t be many people in Turandot Subcontinent who could match it. As Cordelia got the support from a Devil Viscount, naturally, Rose Garden wouldn’t fall that easily.
Carolina said chilly: “In order to deal with me, you would go as far as to believe in a devil? Don’t you know that those who believe in devils, once they die, their souls would return to the Ancient Demonic Plane; don’t you know that your soul will become the property of the Devil Viscount?”
Devils weren’t trustworthy. Once one made a transaction and expressed belief in a devil, especially in a Baron rank devil or higher. Once the believer died, their soul would enter the Ancient Demonic Plane via an occult law, be collected by a devil, and become its possession. Therefore, the belief in devils was not common in the World of Warlocks.
Cordelia said with a light smile: “Of course I know, but as long as I promote to a Starry Sky Warlock, and then go to the main continent. There ought to be ways of solving this problem. Even if it cannot be solved, then after I die, and my soul falls to the Ancient Demonic Plane, I might even reincarnate into a devil. In a sense, I might gain a new life.”
The souls of strong fiends, devils, gods, and many other powerful beings were exceedingly precious. Many powerful ancient devils would tempt powerful experts from different planes to degenerate into signing deals with them, and get their souls, before turning them into powerful devils. They would become their subordinates as well as elite experts. While the souls of the weak, they would be treated as materials for the production of soul stones.
Among the different planes subordinated to the gods, the strongest battle unit was made up of Angels, who were military weapons produced from strong souls. The more powerful were the experts during their lives, the higher would be their evolution potential after they died and were remodeled into angels.
Cordelia gave a sweet smile. Her smile was very beautiful, but the words she spoke were full of malice: “Little sister Carolina, don’t you feel your strength weakening? Sacred Rose Light secret method is indeed one of the six peak secret methods with the highest poison resistance in Turandot Subcontinent. But you’re not a Starry Sky Warlock yet, and you aren’t immune to this strange poison. The longer you wait, the weaker you’ll become. Now that I’ve told you everything, you should be satisfied and can die in piece, right? I’ll operate my secret method and offer your souls to my Master, His Lordship Devil Viscount Gaddesdon, as sacrifice. It will definitely be very glad, and will grant me more power.”
“You’re right, it’s really very difficult to deal with such a strange poison, and even I’m incapable of dispelling it. However, I still have enough strength to kill you!”
Carolina’s beautiful eyes revealed dazzling divine glints. With a furious roar, she erupted with a terrifying life force infinitesimally close to that of a Starry Sky Warlock rank expert. With a flick of her wrist, a copper mirror with countless rose patterns and a simple aura appeared on her lily-white hand, before she frantically poured her tremendous spirit force into it.
Soon after, a boundless sacred light slowly spread out of the copper mirror, as if the sacred aura of god awakened from the copper mirror.
“The semi-divine armament Rose Divine Mirror!!” Cordelia’s pretty face changed. She took out a pitch-black statue of a devil shrouded in demonic aura; it had a sinister appearance, and a vertical eye between its eyebrows. Cordelia shrieked: “Your Lordship Gaddesdon, come and save me!”
After Cordelia shrieked, she reaped apart a spell scroll. In a flash, countless icicles burst out and like raindrops, shot towards the spectators of the grand arena.
Without any strength to resist, several hundred Warlocks were pierced through those icicles, leaving their bodies bloodied.
The vertical eye between the eyes of the strange statue of a devil flashed with a bloody radiance and began rotating like a bloody whirlpool. The blood from the several hundred Warlocks was completely absorbed by the statue of a devil.
With their bodies sucked dry, the several hundred Warlocks became several hundred dessicated corpses with horror plastered on their faces.
After the statue of a devil absorbed the blood from the several hundred Warlocks, it shook lightly, and kicked up wind. As if full of vitality, it’s life force rose little by little, starting from that of an ordinary Great Warlock, before becoming more and more powerful.
The statue of a devil casually grabbed with its hands. Suddenly, two black whirlpools appeared and fell onto the spectators. Without any strength to resist, several hundred Warlocks were instantly shredded into flesh and blood, before merging with the black whirlpools.
After the black whirlpools absorbed the flesh and blood of several hundred Warlocks, the life force from the statue of a devil became a bit more powerful. The statue had gained a trace of life, as if about to come to life.
Gaddesdon’s eyes turned, fell on Carolina, and it said with a faint smile: “So you are St. Rose City’s Carolina, not bad. I’m quite appreciative of you. Believe in me, offer everything of yours to me, and I’ll grant you eternal life. After you die, I’ll transform you into an ancient devil, and you’ll accompany me forever, never to die again.”
“Go to hell! You fucking low life of a devil!”
Carolina was very clear that she couldn’t let the statue of a demon grow in strength. She gave a piercing howl, and pointed the Rose Divine Mirror to shine on the statue of a devil.
In a split second, a sacred radiance erupted from the Rose Divine Mirror, and turned into a white light beam with a terrifying purifying might, before shooting towards Gaddesdon.
Gaddesdon’s eyes flashed with a solemn glint, before he reached out with his hands and grabbed. Two black whirlpools seemingly capable of swallowing everything suddenly appeared to block in front of him.
The white light beam hit the black whirlpools, purifying them bit by bit.
Gaddesdon’s true body was tyrannically strong, it could kill Carolina, a Great Warlock, with a casual strike of it’s hand. But this statue was but an embodiment that traveled across planes and descended here. With it’s strength greatly decreased, and without the appropriate secret treasures, it was even being suppressed by the Rose Divine Mirror’s white radiance.
Along with brittle sounds, Gaddesdon’s body showed one crack after another, and the black whirlpools also became smaller and smaller.
“Bastard! If I were here with my true body, then I could kill you with a single slap!”
Gaddesdon uttered an unresigned furious roar, before his body crumbled and turned into fragments splashing everywhere.
The white light beam was also extremely weakened; it hit Cordelia, and blasted apart her life force cover. She was knocked to the ground, and spurted out a large mouthful of blood.
Carolina also spurted out a large mouthful of blood, her tender body shook lightly and she tumbled to the ground. The semi-divine armament Rose Divine Mirror in her hands also fell to the ground. She glared unwillingly at Cordelia. If only she could go on for ten more seconds, then she would have killed Cordelia.
“Haha, I won! Little sister Carolina, It’s my victory in the end! I finally won against you!”
While gasping for air, Cordelia stood up from the ground, and began to laugh wildly, unable to convey her elation.
At this moment, Lion Cobham of the North who had been lying motionless on the ground suddenly rose to his feet. He moved lightning fast, and fiercely stabbed at Cordelia with a hidden dagger.
Cordelia was caught off guard, she barely managed to move her body by a fraction, before being stabbed by Cobham’s dagger in the abdomen.
“Bastard!!” Cordelia’s eyes became bloodshot, she gave a furious roar, a flame rose imprint appeared on her right palm, and she ferociously struck at Cobham.
