Chapter 1099: 1099
Noah quickly sent a message to Chasing Demon . The Patriarch was aware of King Elbas' curiosity, but Noah wanted to make sure that he knew how dedicated the Royal was as a researcher .

"Don't worry," Chasing Demon replied through a mental message, "I'm just getting started . "

The lines of the formation shone more brightly after Chasing Demon sent that message . The army formed again, and the White Ape was among the creatures, staring at the powerhouse accompanied by the golden cage .

King Elbas was ready to activate some defensive method, but the magical beasts didn't attack . They stood on the charred ground, watching the powerhouse inspecting them with an interested gaze .

A second rank 6 aura appeared among the army at some point . A human figure flew above the beasts and landed on the Ape's shoulder before joining the creatures in their stare .

That figure didn't need presentations . He was the tall man with red hair and dark eyes who had started a war for the sake of his destruction .

King Elbas' eyebrows arched at that sight . Ravaging Demon looked down on him in an incredibly realistic manner . Even his centers of power matched his old cultivation level .

"I expected something similar when you captured his remaining consciousness," King Elbas announced, conscious that the experts in the distance would hear him . "However, this goes beyond my wildest expectations . You managed to replicate a powerhouse!"

King Elbas resembled a kid who had just discovered a new toy, but he expressed his excitement with a grace fit of his status .

The arrogance in his expression became less intense as he learnt about creations that he couldn't imitate . Still, his curiosity replaced that feeling, and his eyes began to shine with a golden light .

King Elbas rarely showed that aspect of his individuality in the open . It would be too easy to exploit his uncontrollable curiosity toward any form of inscription otherwise .

Yet, he now stood at the peak of the heroic ranks . There was virtually nothing in a lower plane that could threaten him . Only Shandal's return might force him to hold back, but the God of the Empire had no interest in suppressing such a promising expert .

Ravaging Demon didn't wear his iconic smile, but he lifted his hand to prepare his spell . King Elbas saw a scarlet flame appearing in his palm before a blue radiance filled his vision .

The tide of weaker beasts launched attacks that quickly took fire as the Royal counter-attacked . The White Ape created ice platforms in the air to run away from the flames, and Ravaging Demon remained on its shoulder as he waited for his moment .

Ravaging Demon had jumped off the Ape when the ice began to cover it . He waited until the second wave of flame melted the spear and killed the beast inside it before flying toward King Elbas and triggering his attack .

A sea of flames spread on the region . A pure sense of destruction invaded the battlefield and fought the fire still lingering on the ground .

The rank 6 copies had both performed suicidal attacks . Chasing Demon knew that the Copying Technique alone couldn't defeat King Elbas, but he wanted to see if the Royal had a limit or showed flaws in his battle style .

King Elbas became visible once Ravaging Demon's flames dispersed . His robe was still clean, and he had suffered no injuries . Even that last assault had proven itself useless against him .

The copies reformed and resumed their endless assault . The Copying Technique managed to keep King Elbas busy for two more hours before deciding that it was time to move on .

The Royals poured four drops of blood on the shining lines under him, and fire spread in the region's underground world . A large chunk of the Copying Technique fell apart during the attack, but some inscriptions remained in place .

The region wasn't as lucky . It had already become a mess of scorching fissures and melted rocks due to the past exchanges, but now it crumbled downward since it had lost most of its underground area .

The terrain caved in . Some of the melted rocks began to flow across the new cracks, creating dense dark-red rivers .

The structure of the region remained unstable even after all the boulders and chunks of terrain settled . No more copies appeared around King Elbas, but he could sense traces of "Breath" gathering at some distance from him .

King Elbas wanted to follow those traces to reach another core of the Copying Technique, but three figures started to form after he walked for some time .

Ravaging Demon reappeared, and the White Ape reformed too . The third figure took more time to form, but it eventually became material in the shape of a giant snake .

Noah almost couldn't believe his eyes . The third beast that had appeared was a Flying Snake quite similar to the last ancestor of the other world!

Moreover, it radiated faint mental waves and carried traces of a dantian . Chasing Demon had summoned a creature killed by the Worldwide Heaven Tribulation!

"Do you like it?" Thirty-seven's voice resounded in Noah's mind when the Flying Snake formed completely . The automaton used a private channel to talk with him, so no one could hear their conversation .

"Did you use the ashes of the ancestor?" Noah asked . He had given the bucket to the automaton long ago, but he had almost forgotten about it .

The remains of the rank 6 creature had lost all their power . Heaven and Earth had been thorough in their destruction, so Noah didn't expect the automaton to do much with its ashes .

"They have been a pain to restore into a useful form," Thirty-seven replied . "I have treated them with the most nurturing materials for over a century to recover a small part of their original power . Then, I used the theory of the Body-inscription spell to create a drawing that resembled the original creature . "

Noah was speechless . He remembered that the ashes didn't carry the slightest trace of the ancestor . They were nothing more than a common material, but the automaton claimed that he had partially restored them .

That went beyond Noah's comprehension . Thirty-seven's accomplishment resembled a resurrection rather than a restoration . He had also managed to put those results into use, which made them even more valuable .

"The creature isn't exactly alive," Thirty-seven continued, "But there are loopholes in the Copying Technique . Since it can replicate almost everything, you only need to give it the right inputs to create what you desire . "

Noah guessed that the automaton was excited to see his creation finally joining a battle . He couldn't explain while Thirty-seven was so polite and expansive with him otherwise .

The Flying Snake radiated an aura at the peak of the middle tier, but it had a dantian near the peak of the liquid stage . When it came to its cultivation level, it was as strong as Great Elder Diana .

The Snake was a hybrid too, so it could rely on its physical strength . Noah didn't believe that the Council's Matriarch would lose in a direct fight against the creature, but that didn't diminish its value .

King Elbas didn't show any fear in front of the three rank 6 copies . His cultivation level was still far above theirs, but the constant assault of the Copying Technique was about to affect him .

He was only one cultivator . Even his immense power had limits, and Chasing Demon was doing his best to see how strong the Royal was .
