Paragon of Sin

Chapter 402: A Being From Beyond

element? How could Ori? She was, by all means, equally all elements.

Her Natal Soul was constructed using Elemental Origin Energy, not Fire, Water, or whatever else energy, but Elemental Origin Energy. The manner by which she was born indicated her lack of preference by default.

He looked at the old man, this overseer of the Myriad Dao Palaces, with a faint smile. ”I don ’t have one. ”

”…? ” The old man was taken aback by that answer, unsure how to respond. ”What do you mean by that? ” His grey-colored body trembled slightly, clearly revealing his shock. 

Wei Wuyin chuckled with heart, ”Just as I said: I don ’t have a Core Element Dao. The concept of Elemental Origin Energy is to include all elements equally, integrating their myriad variations and aspects into a unified product, while simultaneously touching their origins. Choosing a Core Element Dao, to favor one element, is an unforgivable sin to the intent itself. ”

Wei Wuyin felt that it was no wonder the Divine King Han Xei had to resort to using forceful means to elevate and facilitate the birth of Elemental Origin Intent to his successors, likely even himself. From the very beginning, his and their foundation was shaky. If you didn ’t understand the greatest principle of Elemental Origin Intent, how can you hope to form it naturally?

”…! ” The old man ’s body took a few steps back, causing heavy thuds to resound. His eyes widened in disbelief at Wei Wuyin ’s profound words. He was just an overseer, not even a subordinate of the Divine King, but he had seen numerous possessors of the Elemental Origin Intent due to the Divine King Han Xei ’s method. Not a single one had ever given such an answer, acting like Lin Ming.

They would simply think for a brief moment and pick one of the nine elements. After a long silence, he heavily sighed with indescribable emotions. Despite being tens of thousands of years old, having seen numerous things in this world, he felt his world view and understanding was being constantly challenged by Wei Wuyin.

Wei Wuyin frowned in deliberation for a moment before asking, ”What do you know about the Auric Sea? ” 

”Hm? ” The old man lifted his gaze, curious about Wei Wuyin ’s question. ”Auric Sea? What ’s that? ” 

Wei Wuyin realized that the old man ’s knowledge wasn ’t updated, still referring to the Sacred Elven Queen by her real name, which suggests he had no outside information coming in. He was largely ignorant of things and events past a certain point.

”What are you, exactly? ” 

Facing Wei Wuyin ’s inquiry, the old man seemed to recall something, producing an animatedly forlorn expression on his face. Then, a hint of excitement flourished. ”Me? Once upon a time, I was an Ascended! A being that exceeded the limits of my mortality! There was nowhere I couldn ’t go, no one I needed to fear. Revered by all mortals, I reigned over my kingdom.

”Unfortunately, I…my physical body was destroyed and my Mystic Soul was damaged. Without my cultivation, without my physical container, I was slowly dissipating from this world. My death was at hand, but! I found hope! Or I should say, he found me. I was found drifting by a Mortal Sovereign Alchemist, and he saved my Spiritual Form, giving me the opportunity to survive. So, I took it.

”I became this: a Spirtform. I, being without a physical body, merged with my Mystic Soul. While my cultivation had halted indefinitely, I regained a form of immortality. I agreed to serve for ten thousand years as the overseer of the Myriad Dao Palaces in exchange. ”

Wei Wuyin was listening completely to his retellings of events. As he heard more and more, the shock in his heart grew greater and greater. He blurted out, ”You ’re not from this starfield? ” 

”Oh? Not many would jump to that conclusion, believing that I am some secluded expert. How did you come to this conclusion? ” The old man was intrigued.

Wei Wuyin had noticed that the old man was entirely unconcerned with the state of the starfield or its myriad changes despite having individuals arrive to these Myriad Dao Palaces continuously. He had an open-source of continuous information if he wanted, but he felt disinclined to even try. He could believe this if there wasn ’t a time limit to servitude, but that suggests freedom at the end of it, so why remain willfully ignorant?

Furthermore, he was the first to refer to the King of Everlore as a Mortal Sovereign Alchemist, not the King of Everlore. This suggests the King of Everlore wasn ’t the first Mortal Sovereign Alchemist he ’d met. To add, he said that he ’regained ’ his immortality. 

This suggests the old man was originally an immortal to begin with. But from what he knew, Wu Yu had stated that he had a lifespan, but it was far, far longer than Astral Core Realm cultivators. This meant he had to have a cultivation beyond the First Stage of the Mystic Ascendant Realm. Before the King of Everlore, there were no Mystic Ascendants; the starfield wasn ’t capable of naturally producing them.

This was a heavy point driven by Wu Yu many times as he regarded his Solar Star as a core reason that the starfield could even produce fifth or sixth stage experts to begin with.

Moreover, the term ’Ascended ’ wasn ’t used in the starfield. In fact, his entire terminology from the beginning of their conversation suggested he was from another cultivation society. He was the first to refer to the Mortal Limits as the Mortal Limits. Wei Wuyin hadn ’t even read other experts use that term in their journals, mostly deciding to use it himself because it felt right.

After explaining all this to the old man, he received a gasp of astonishment. The old man even clapped his hands in applause, finding that Wei Wuyin ’s deductive skills were quite exceptional. The more he interacted with this youth, the more he, a member that had transcended Mortal Limits, couldn ’t help but be awed. 

”What else do you want to know? ” The old man seemed to find an outlet for his prolonged boredom, deciding to indulge Wei Wuyin ’s curiosity. And Wei Wuyin didn ’t hold back one bit!

They started to speak for hours…
