Tang Tian did not have any strength in him but he felt quite well, his clear eyes like stars, glowed brightly.
When Tang Tian awoke, everyone immediately found their backbone, and all of their panic and lost instantly disappeared. Johnson heaved a sigh of relief, although he felt that the sudden change of atmosphere was miraculous. All of them who were beaten up badly, were currently in high spirits, their faces revealing ominous glints, as though they wanted to use their excess energy to look for fights.
He was inevitably moved, inside this unit, the Master was irreplaceable.
His gaze landed on the Master, and when his eyes made contact with the Master's, he lowered his head. After he woke up, his entire aura seemed to have undergone a huge change, the previous imposing and valiant aura had disappeared, he had become extremely ordinary, and if placed in a crowd, he would look just like another passerby.
But his eyes, were strangely bright, which even the darkness could not conceal.
When the Master looked at him, Johnson felt as if he was being seen through completely.
Tang Tian looked at a group of people in the distance with interest, and asked Johnson: "Who're they?"
Johnson immediately noticed the commotion in the distance, he looked over, and his face instantly changed, he exclaimed softly: "Sacred Son! Honorable Martial Banner of Knights!"
Charles' smile was warm and gentle, making him filled with intimacy. He was extremely gentle and caring to the old, he shuffled the children's hair and encouraged them. He asked everyone what sort of problems they have encountered and what they needed him to do. Who would have thought that the high and noble Sacred Son would actually be so down to earth and warm, in the blink of the eye, he had convinced everyone. The gaze that everyone had towards him was filled with reverence and support. Many others had knelt down to worship him, losing their voices and crying bitterly.
Sophie stood guard beside Charles' side, her gaze constantly shifting about, an undetectable undulation spread out from her as the center.
Her hands never left the sword hilt, and she was constantly on alert.
"Relax, Sophie." Charles chuckled: "Do you think the enemy will stay here?"
"Someone was scrutinizing us just now." Sophie said coldly.
Charles chuckled, ~Sophie is truly too inflexible~, he teased her: "You have to get used to us being the focus, how can we not attract eyes? Furthermore, you are so beautiful like a celestial, it is very normal for people to scrutinize you. Did you find anything?"
"Not yet." Sophie said coldly, she felt that it was weird. She had truly felt a powerful gaze, but when she turned back, she could not feel anything. Out of caution, she even unleashed [Detection Ripple].
Heaven's Road unique point of martial techniques were the meticulous variations in energy, which was something that the Sacred Saint Galaxy did not have. Many of Heaven's Road martial techniques were not suitable to be used in Sacred Saint Galaxy, but as Temple had many geniuses, they started to make changes to the martial techniques, and the [meticulous Detection Ripple]ight-obfuscation"> not was one of them.
The Detection Ripple was a sort of probing martial technique, the energy undulation being extremely sensitive. Any outstanding military general or powerful martial artist would have control over energy as an instinct. When the Detection Ripple swept past them, it would immediately produce a minute feedback, and this
feedback was able to reflect the person's strength.
Sophie's[Detection [De[Detection ection Rpple] was ext[Detection remely[Detection powerfulwher[Detection e even the smallest of variations was [Detection nable to ecape from her eyes.
But from the feedback, she obtained nothing, and did not discover any suspicious characters.
~Was it a wrong feeling?~
Sophie looked around again, but did not find anything.
Charles' gaze landed on a transport ship not far away and chuckled: "The people from the Western Traders are here."
Sophie retracted her gaze and did not say anything. She had a very bad impression of the Western Traders. Others might think that the Western Traders were able to provide ample support being a wealthy organization, but Sophie did not care about that, and naturally did not show them any courtesy.
With that, Sophie turned and walked away.
Charles was extremely clear of his Knight Commander's temper and did not care, his gaze landed on the old man with a huge goatee. This straightforward looking man that looked like a bandit was the man with the highest authority in the Western Traders, Carl.
"Carl, I never thought that you would be here as well." Charles smiled and walked up, as though he was meeting an old friend.
"Your highness!" Carl immediately jogged over to Charles and greeted Charles respectfully, with a fearful voice: "I have given Temple too much of a trouble, to even get Your Highness down, this lowly one deserves death."
Charles maintained his attractive smile and spoke out words that caused people to feel a cool breeze: "It is a breach of our interior, Temple has the responsibility to protect everybody and their assets, Carl, don't worry about it."
"The Temple is brilliant, your highness is brilliant." Carl revealed an emotional look.
Charles continued speaking: "The Western Traders is the role model to the various continents in the Western Region, and also the backbone, I hope that the Western Traders will be able to rise to the occasion. With the destruction of Blue Wind City, you all should immediately set up a new city. On this, it will be impossible for Temple to follow up, so we hope that the various family businesses and organizations will be able to band together and build up a new and magnificent Blue Wind City."
Carl immediately replied: "Rest assure your Highness, for this matter, the Western Traders will be responsible for it, the new city plans will quickly be handed to Temple, the costs will be fully raised by the various businesses and organizations, and the Western Traders will assume at least half or more of the costs."
Charles revealed a satisfied look, the undertaking of building the new Blue Wind City was to give Temple face, and also his own.
He smiled even more intimately: "With Carl taking charge, I can truly rest easy."
Tang Tian who was in the distance listened to Johnson as he introduced Sacred Son Charles and the Honorable Martial Banner of Knights, and when his gaze landed on the golden clad banner of knights, his heart trembled. Every single one of the fully equipped Knights emitted terrifying auras. He recognized the aura, and could not help but think back about the Saints from Heaven's Road's Temple.
They were loud and glorious, tyrannical and filled with oppression.
All of these Honorable Martial Banner of Knights' auras were even more terrifying, to the point that it could cause people to choke. The gold armor on their bodies seemed to have suppressed and locked down their aura, but occasionally, a trace of it would leak out, the tyrannical aura filled with destructive caused people to be fearful.
The strength of the Banner of Knights did not exceed Tang Tian's expectations.
But what he never thought was that the commander of the Banner of Knights was a female spirit general!
There were extremely few spirit generals in Sacred Saint Galaxy, so to have such a powerful female spirit general was extremely surprising. She was the strongest spirit general Tang Tian had ever seen, even Sima Xiao's Magatama could not compare to her. Previously when his gaze had landed on her for a moment, it immediately caused her to be cautious. And when she released the bit of undulation, although other people did not notice it, but Tang Tian was shocked.
~Heaven's Road martial technique!~
Although he did not know what technique it was, but Tang Tian was able to recognize it, and inwardly exclaimed at how powerful it was. This bit of undulation was like a feedback, and could easily react with the energy inside their bodies, if not for them being zero energy bodies, they would had been revealed.
"....and his Highness Charles, born to royalty, his father is currently the youngest clan elder of Temple, his mother is the daughter of the previous generation's clan elder, from young he was blessed, his talent is on a level that no one can compare to. He is hailed as the most potential for a leader in Temple's hundred years, and every word and sentence of his is greatly followed after. Sacred Son Charles has displayed an intellect far surpassing his age since young, and when he was 15 years go, through the agreement of the Clan Elder's Group, he was appointed to be the current generation's Sacred Son. Master Sophie's background is extremely mysterious, there are people say that she is the heroic spirit of a deceased Sacred Maiden, sent to protect Sacred Son Charles. But this subordinate accidentally heard a rumor, saying that Master Sophie was created. But this, sounds too crazy…."
~She was created?~
Tang Tian's eyes constricted, he suddenly thought of Sima Xiao's Magatama. In truth, Magatama was created. ~Could it be that Honorable Martial Continent already wields the technique to do it? And, to create such a powerful spirit general, it truly is too scary…..~
For some reason, Tang Tian kept all of Johnson's words to heart. In the Sacred Saint Galaxy, only the Honorable Martial Continent was conducting research on spirits, and they looked to have substantial breakthroughs.
~If Sophie was truly created by Temple, then Temple's research on spirits is far more profound than what I thought.~
~That is definitely bad news!~
The Sacred Saint Galaxy was not a place to birth spirits, but if they did, then the Sacred Saint Galaxy could easily become stronger. And if the spirit generals were extremely powerful, their speed of improvement would be godlike, as the energy in the Sacred Saint Galaxy was too dense. Sima Xiao's Magatama was a perfect example, she seemed to be changing on a daily basis.
"Temple is truly furious this time. For the Sacred Son and the Banner of Knights, who are the core of Temple to be here, it shows how important Temple sees this. If not, ordinary matters can never summon the Sacred Son and Banner of Knights."
Tang Tian did not think so.
The matter of Blue Wind City was truly too huge, but the reason why they sent out the Sacred Son and Banner of Knights was because Temple did not have sufficient manpower. Jia Ya was seated in the Center Region, the other Four Great Generals were not around, thus Temple had to send out the Sacred Son and Banner of Knights.
Temple's intent was clear, they wanted to destroy the bandits with the quickest speed.
Temple also knew that the Southern Expedition was at its critical juncture, but maintaining peace in their own territory was the most important matter.
Tang Tian suddenly had a brazen thought.
~Get rid of Charles and the Banner of Knights!~
But instantly, Tang Tian jumped in fear from his own thought. The Banner of Knights did not have many people, but every single one of them were extremely powerful. Filled with the destructive power of the Light attribute aura, all of them were like suns locked inside the armored jail, filled with an endless power of destruction.
And there was Sophie, if the Banner of Knights were considered suns filled with endless power, then Sophie was the deepest abyss in the sea of energy, where not even a trace of aura was revealed.
~Can I fight against Sophie?~ Tang Tian did not know.
And there was one more person.
His gaze landed on the most ordinary looking Sacred Son Charles who was no different from the ordinary citizens, maintaining a smile the entire time.
Tang Tian who had extraordinary intuition could sense that he was in no way simple.
