Chapter 1108: The Devil's Bloodline!
The Horned Demon Race, Ghost Eye Race, Dark Shadow Race, and the members of the Ling Family whose bloodline had awakened all looked happy and excited.
None of them showed a trace of fear or anxiety.
Many Abyss Devils' corpses could be found inside their gathering ground. This meant that their expedition in the Abyss was progressing smoothly.
It was a fact that many of them had ascended to higher realms after consuming the Abyss Devils' flesh and blood.
The environment obviously suited them well.
While the human race was wondering if they should escape the Abyss, the Nether Realm races were wondering if they should move over more of their clansmen.
Even if they were to do nothing but cultivate in the Abyss, they had the feeling that they would be progressing much faster than they would in Nether Realm.
Of course, this progress was sped up further thanks to the existence of the Abyss Devils.
"The Abyss Devils' flesh and blood are very important to us. Everyone of us can grow stronger just by consuming them!" Gordon chuckled.
"We're preparing for a battle against the Lord of the Abyss Barthez!" Luz declared ambitiously.
Qin Lie couldn't help but glance at La Pu.
La Pu replied excitedly, "I need a rank nine Abyss Devil's blood!"
"The Abyss Devil's blood may be able to fix the flaws in our bloodline!" Gordon could hardly control his excitement when he said this. "It's possible that all three of our races can evolve to rank ten and transform into Demon Gods!"
Both Gordon and Luz inhaled deeply when they thought that their dream might come true.
Qin Lie turned to look at Ling Yushi.
His fiance pursed her lips and smiled. "We should be able to kill a Lord of the Abyss."
Qin Lie pondered for a moment, but didn't advise against their decision. He simply said, "Please be very careful."
Because he possessed the Soul Beast avatar's memories, he knew that the nearby Lord of the Abyss called Barthez was a very formidable opponent.
He was worried that Ling Yushi and the others might underestimate his power and suffer huge casualties as a result.
"Don't worry, we'll make sure to plan everything properly. We absolutely won't act recklessly." Gordon chuckled.
"Qin Lie… can that realm entrance of yours be used frequently?" Luz changed the subject.
"Of course." Qin Lie nodded.
"We would like to move more clansmen over to the Abyss. I believe that they would adapt to the environment very quickly," Luz said.
"That's not a problem," Qin Lie agreed easily before asking in surprise. "You all need nether demonic energy to cultivate, right? Can you… adapt to the energies of the Abyss?"
The moment he said this, everyone including Ling Yushi wore a strange smile on their faces.
"What's wrong?" he asked in a puzzled manner.
"We Nether Realm races improve our cultivation and strengthen our bloodline through refining nether demonic energy," Luz of Dark Shadow Race explained with a smile. "Everything we create in our bodies and blood is nether demonic energy. By breeding Armored Demon Insects and growing Nether Realm plants, we convert the world spirit energy of Seven Eye Island and Soul Summoning Island into nether demonic energy. For our kind, more nether demonic energy means stronger bloodline and realm."
"I'm aware of all this." Qin Lie nodded.
"Then do you know what is the source of Nether Realm's nether demonic energy?" Luz asked while still smiling.
Qin Lie shook his head.
"There are two places Nether Realm's nether demonic energy originate from. The first source is the Profound Yin Nether Sea, and the second source is the Nine Soul Hell!" Luz declared.
Qin Lie looked astonished by this. "But I thought that nether demonic energy exists everywhere in Nether Realm?"
"You aren't wrong. However, it is a fact that all this nether demonic energy came from the Profound Yin Nether Sea and Nine Soul Hell!" Luz sucked in a deep breath before continuing in a serious manner, "I once ventured into the deepest part of the Profound Yin Nether Sea where the nether demonic energy is the thickest. I can tell you right that the nether demonic energy there… is extremely similar to the energy of the Abyss!"
"It is the same with the Nine Soul Hell." Ling Yushi supported his statement.
"But how can this be?" Qin Lie looked shocked.
"You should know the Abyss better than we do. What do the God Race and Soul Race call the natural energy of the Abyss?" Ling Yushi asked.
Qin Lie frowned and searched for the ultimate races' terms for the energy of the Abyss.
A Soul Race term suddenly flashed past his mind!
"Abyss devil energy! Both the Soul Race and the God Race call the chaotic, violent energy of this place the abyss devil energy!" He couldn't stop himself from blurting.
"That's right! This energy is called the abyss devil energy!" Luz laughed loudly, "What we call nether demonic energy in Nether Realm is in fact a much diluted form of abyss devil energy! Now we know that Nether Realm's Profound Yin Nether Sea and Nine Soul Hell are actually connected to somewhere in the Abyss! When the abyss devil energy spilled out of the Profound Yin Nether Sea and Nine Soul Hell, they mingled with the natural spirit energy of Nether Realm and turned into nether demonic energy over time!"
"To us, the abyss devil energy is pretty much a extremely condensed version of the nether demonic energy! Do you understand why we're so excited now?"
"If my guess is correct, our ancestors had probably passed into Nether Realm through the Profound Yin Nether Sea and Nine Soul Hell a very long time ago. After mating with the local races of Nether Realm, their descendants eventually grew in numbers and became the current races of Nether Realm!"
"That is why Abyss Devils' blood runs in our veins!"
Luz laughed loudly as he declared his bold guess.
Qin Lie was stunned beyond words.
"Unfortunately, the abyss devil energy that flows into Nether Realm from the Abyss levels connected to the Profound Yin Nether Sea and Nine Soul Hell goes in one direction only. The Abyss Devils can pass into our world through the Profound Yin Nether Sea and Nine Soul Hell, but we can never pass into their Abyss levels through the same way." La Pu sighed with obvious regret. "In short, these passages are probably one-way channels."
The so-called one-way channel was a passage that can only go from one side to the other. It is impossible for beings on the other side to cross it.
La Pu was saying that everything that passes through the Profound Yin Nether Sea and Nine Soul Hell could only from from the Abyss to Nether Realm, never the other around.
Due to the passage's special trait, no one from Nether Realm had ever ventured into Abyss, even by accident. They didn't realize that there was a wonderful place at a corner of the galaxy called the Abyss, and that it was full of Abyss Devils. They didn't realize that the source of their bloodline was the Abyss, and that nether demonic energy was in fact a diluted form of abyss devil energy.
If Qin Lie hadn't brought them into the Abyss, they might never figure out the origin of their bloodline or the Profound Yin Nether Sea and Nine Soul Hell's ultimate secrets for generations to come.
"I guess I accidentally helped you guys find out the source of your bloodlines," Qin Lie exclaimed.
"All of our bloodlines are flawed in certain ways. If we can fix these flaws, we'll become as strong as the Abyss Devils!" Gordon said excitedly.
The bloodline of a high rank Abyss Devil was as powerful as the God Race, the Soul Race or the Spirit Race's bloodlines. They were some of the strongest beings in the entire galaxy.
Everyone here wished to evolve their bloodlines to transcendent levels!
"Alright! I'll tell Curtis to help you move more clansmen into the Abyss!" Qin Lie promised.
Every Nether Realm denizen was excited to hear this.
"You can have this secret art. It is a research about bloodlines, and maybe it may give you some inspirations." Qin Lie imprinted the Blood Progenitor's Blood Stealing Secret Art in a Memory Fragment Crystal and passed it to La Pu. "I hope that you will find the way to fix the flaws in your bloodlines very soon."
La Pu accepted the Memory Fragment Crystal. A moment later, La Pu shook and gripped the crystal tightly, "This research is extremely useful! Both the things you gave me this time and last time are the things I dreamt of!"
Last time, Qin Lie had given him the bloodline research he acquired from the Chaos Blood Realm. It was a research on the bloodline of powerful ancient races the God Race spent thousands of years to research.
This time, he had given La Pu the human race's Blood Stealing Secret Art. In Qin Lie's opinion, La Pu was the Blood Progenitor of this era, and he had a feeling that La Pu's deep knowledge of bloodlines would reap him huge benefits in the future.
"I trust that your achievements in terms of bloodline will exceed our Blood Progenitor. Just like how the Blood Progenitor had transformed the human race, I'm sure that you can transform the races of Nether Realm as well!" Qin Lie said solemnly.
Qin Lie's support excited La Pu greatly.
