Paragon of Sin

Chapter 439: Date of Trial

eir world ’s history. No one knew who they were or why they arrived, and that information was never spread if it was said.

To learn that Wei Wuyin was also a Beyonder, this caused him to be extremely vigilant. He had doubts whether the Spell Formation inscribed by Wei Wuyin was actually stolen, likely a ploy to play for time. As for what he stole from the female Realmlord, it might not be so simple.

As for these tokens, he wasn ’t certain but he had a faint triggering memory about the Badges of Divinity. They were the six badges of the continent that signified the six divinities worshipped by the entire continent. 

”Are these so-called Tokens of Elementus the Badges of Divinity? ” Ai Shenwu inquired, curious if they were one and the same. And when he saw Wei Wuyin nod unhesitatingly to his question, he realized that Wei Wuyin had already known of the Badges of Divinity. This caused him to frown deeply.

”Are you done? ” Wei Wuyin probingly asked, ready to ask his own questions. 

Ai Shenwu rubbed his beard, thinking for a moment before nodding. While he still had some questions, he needed to properly consider them. Wei Wuyin was unlikely to answer his questions so freely.

Wei Wuyin nodded. ”That young female elf that was with you, she had Elemental Origin Intent, or at least the powers of it, vested in her eyes. Is she a Holy Daughter of the Divinities? Does she have a Badge of Divinity?

Ai Shenwu froze, looking at Wei Wuyin for a long moment. He thought about lying, but decided against it. ”She isn ’t. She ’s a Candidate to become a Holy Daughter, however. The first hope the Ai Clan of the Grey Sands Elves Tribe has had in the last two thousand years. ” 

When Wei Wuyin heard this, his heart sank as he sighed. He was hoping to obtain a token. But then a thought struck him, ”You said she ’s a Candidate? Does becoming a Holy Daughter require one to obtain a Badge of Divinity? ” 

Wei Wuyin was under the assumption that only the supposed ’five ’ Chosen Candidates with Badges of Divinity could participate in the four trials to obtain the others. He immediately felt that he was wrong in that assumption. If there were native candidates that could obtain a badge, then his original idea was a possibility.

Ai Shenwu carelessly nodded. ”The Badge of Divinity requires one to comprehend Elemental Origin Intent. There are at least seven known candidates, with one Holy Daughter and one Holy Son, a total of nine. After you reach that requirement, one can challenge the Holy Trials held by the four Semi-Divine Guardians of the Continent. ” This was commonly known information, so there was no need to hide it.

He was assigned to protect Ai Chyou, a Candidate. To ensure that she would be able to safely participate in the trial. 

Wei Wuyin thought for a moment. ”When ’s the trial? ” He realized there was a time set to enter this trial, if not, then the young woman would ’ve long since participated in the trial. 

Ai Shenwu looked at Wei Wuyin for a long while. He shook his head, ”the four Semi-Divine Guardians aren ’t beings you can forcefully steal the badges from, also its worthless. You must participate in the trial to receive it, otherwise the badges won ’t accept you. ” He was clearly under the assumption that Wei Wuyin was a legit thief. Regardless if the situation between the female Realmlord and Wei Wuyin wasn ’t simple, the fact he had stolen something was certainly true. When Wei Wuyin was at his weakest, he could easily determine if he lied or not.

Wei Wuyin gave a sly grin. His skills as a thief wasn ’t to be underestimated, but he wasn ’t intending to use direct force against these so-called Semi-Divine Guardians. He fully intended to earn it fair and square! Of course, if that didn ’t work. Well, he ’ll have to let his fists convince them otherwise.

”When is it? ” He asked again.

Ai Shenwu shook his head, no longer worrying about Wei Wuyin. Actually, he shouldn ’t be concerned about Wei Wuyin or advising him otherwise. However, when he thought about it, he realized why he was concerned.

If Wei Wuyin was already this strong, this heaven-defying, what about his parents? His master? The force behind him? Could they devastate the continent in an enraged fit? He didn ’t want to die such a frustrating death.

”It ’s in four months and twelve days. The Four Extreme Continent has four trials still active, two having been overcome thousands of years ago. The two trials that were completed became the Central Region, and both Holy Children were Ganshu. ” Ai Shenwu spat the last portion. The term ’ganshu ’ clearly referred to the humans of this world, likely the elven language word for them.

When Wei Wuyin heard this, he had an inkling as to why the elven race was at such a lower position than humans. It seems these Badges of Divinity might mean or do a lot more than just give a title or a right to fight as a Chosen Candidate against the others. 

Wei Wuyin followed-up his question, ”Will it be held at the Desolate Lands Holy City? ” 

Ai Shenwu nodded, ”True Desolate. ” 

This confirmed Wei Wuyin ’s own assumptions, also coinciding with a religious date within the City Lord of Grandquake City ’s memories. After deducing he hadn ’t been lied to, Wei Wuyin turned to Ai Shenwu. ”You didn ’t bring me down here to ask me who I am. What did you really want? ”
