Paragon of Sin

Chapter 655 - 650: Ancestral Path Genesis Beasts

ion. 

Was there something wrong with the beast species? Or was it just their starfield? As he was lost in thought, a bird ’s head lowered itself to his gaze, a pair of eyes looking at him curiously.

”You ’re doing it again, ” Bai Lin remarked. Wei Wuyin became more contemplative since her return, considering far too many matters with each passing day and spacing out randomly. 

Wei Wuyin broke out of his thoughts. Warily smiling, ”Sorry. I ’m just curious about beasts, that ’s all. Why are you different from others? How come other beasts at the Star-level can ’t communicate via mental energies? ” Wei Wuyin spoke his mind, not concealing or dismissing his questions. He would never hide his thoughts from Bai Lin. There was utterly no need.

Bai Lin lifted her neck up, contemplating with a focused gaze. She was an avian creature, lacking the required facial muscles to frown, but Wei Wuyin could tell she was focusing heavily on his questions with seemingly furrowed brows. 

After a short while, she eventually asked: ”Am I a Star Beast? ” 

This question caused Wei Wuyin to freeze. 

Bai Lin twirled around Wei Wuyin, bobbing her head up and down in thought, sending mental messages. ”According to you, I was a Star Beast before, right? If I ’m different now, then am I still a Star Beast? ”

Wei Wuyin couldn ’t help but ask, ”You don ’t know? ” 

Bai Lin lowered her head, shaking it slightly. ”Star Beast, isn ’t that what others came up with? How could I know? ” 

Wei Wuyin didn ’t know whether to laugh or cry. Then, he realized that there were no distinctions of beasts in the True Dragon Transmutation Method. In a way, mortal-level beasts were beasts too weak of a physical existence to survive in the Dark Void, and star-level beasts were referred to as beasts that can survive the Dark Void.

”It does kind of feel too general and made-up, ” Wei Wuyin remarked with a little bit of shock in his heart. Was the mortal-level and star-level classifications just distinctions, not cultivation levels? 

Wait…

”Bai Lin, do you feel like you have a cultivation level? ” Wei Wuyin asked. 

Bai Lin lifted her head, batting her wings, ”I don ’t know. Nirvanic Rebirth Realm? I think. Maybe? ” She understood what cultivation was, being with Wei Wuyin for decades and being around cultivators since her birth, she picked up many things. She tried to place her thoughts into a similar fashion as cultivators. 

Wei Wuyin added, ”First Stage? ” 

Bai Lin ’s golden-colored eyes brightened with excitement, she moved her neck and head in a vibrant nod. ”I have to overcome eight more. So I guess so. First Stage…Nirvanic Rebirth Realm? Nine Rebirths! Haha, I ’m a cultivator! ” She cried out a series of joyful noises. She soared into the sky, circling Wei Wuyin with astonishing speed and grace.

Wei Wuyin warmly smiled, but his mind was circulating madly. Were beasts functioning on a different cultivation system? If they reached a certain point…

They weren ’t humanoids. But then, what about the Mark of Myths? The Heart of Blood that he formed alongside Kratos. Was it just a byproduct of circumstance, a unique path of two different systems merging? But that didn ’t seem quite right. 

”Bai Lin, do you have any unique abilities? Something that feels outright different from before? Something powerful? ” Wei Wuyin asked the gleeful Bai Lin.

Bai Lin spun mid-air, twisting upwards, and then spread out her wings before gracefully landing. Her movements were incomparably elegant, smooth, and well-practiced. She had years to adjust to her new body. 

”Hmm. Yes. I feel like I can communicate with something inside my heart. It resembles me, but I also can ’t see it clearly. Its strange. ” When she truly thought of it, she now realized certain things were quite odd. 

Wei Wuyin ’s eyes brightened. He felt Kratos rumble in his heart, both coming to a clear conclusion. 

”You figured something out? ” Bai Lin was filled to the brim with curiosity. She didn ’t understand herself well enough or what it meant to be a phoenix. This was the first time the two had ever talked about it despite their almost three years together. While important, it was difficult to grasp.

Wei Wuyin nodded, his eyebrows soothed out and he felt a little relief. ”It ’s hard to put into exact words, but I think I understand what ’s happened to you. Including the certain reasons for events. ” 

The Golden Phoenix Fruit—the Heavenly Daos ’ karmic gift, and why it was given. The instinctual reminder to help Bai Lin overcome her Nirvanic Journey. All of it was connected to Bai Lin ’s cultivation path. He had thought that Bai Lin was like his Mark of Myth, divided into Mortal, Mystic, and Immortal, growing stronger as the bloodline purity was enhanced.

But he realized it wasn ’t. The Mark of Myth was still a product of a Spirit of Cultivation, a metaphysical bloodline. It wasn ’t actually natural like Anu ’s and Bai Lin ’s. Their paths were fundamentally different.

If the Mark of Myth was bout elevating bloodline purity and qualities, infusing Mystic Intent and then later Immortal properties, then it followed the characteristics of his cultivation. Even if his bloodline originated from the lowest species, with the trashiest bloodline, then he could still elevate it to Immortal-Rank, manifesting abilities unique to it even if something of that level never existed in reality by following his path.

However, Bai Lin ’s cultivation geared towards becoming one ’s ancestors, awakening their bloodline, eventually transforming into the progenitor of their entire species. The image that Bai Lin sees in her heart was likely the true form of a fire phoenix, a true divinity. 

She was pursuing her origins.

He was establishing his own path. 

The Heavenly Daos had interfered, deliberately awakening her bloodline to have her support him in his cultivation efforts. They were karmic bonded. 

The reason why others weren ’t like Anu and Bai Lin, to Wei Wuyin ’s assumption, is because they haven ’t awakened their Ancestral Bloodlines, allowing them to step towards their official cultivation path and reach the peak of their existence. Or at least, a peak. 

When he explained all this to Bai Lin, she thought for a long moment before nodding in agreement. She felt that Wei Wuyin was right. That image felt like it was her goal. She was to undergo Nirvanic Transformation nine times, becoming a true phoenix. 

After another hour of back and forth, trying to deduce certain characteristics of her bloodline and path, Wei Wuyin finally came up with a name for her current type of beast, those that have awakened their ancestral bloodline qualities, gaining heightened intelligence and capable of pursuing divinity:

Genesis Beasts.

They were at the beginning of their paths to pursue their origin, their Ancestral Paths. If Bai Lin experienced further changes, he would add to this classification. Anu and Bai Lin were both Genesis Beasts who ’ve awakened their Ancestral Paths in his mind. Unfortunately, this was just his own means to differentiate and analyze for future reference, not an official designation.

The paths of cultivators and beasts were different. One pushed towards their own paths, the other followed their progenitor. 

”I wonder if there ’s actually a True Void Dragon that actually exists in reality… ” The thought caused Kratos to throb fiercely. To be the first of its kind, how legendary would that make it?!
