Solitary Sword Sovereign Chapter 78
Will shook Sicarios hand returning the gesture. Trust me Lord Sicario, it is I who is happy. Becoming part of the worlds greatest nation would be an honour for any Lord.
Sicario shook his head while smiling behind his mask, Please, just call me Sicario. I am unworthy to be called Lord by one as skilled as you are.
Silvertons face became ugly the moment he heard Sicario compliment Will. As far as he knew, Sicario was a quiet and reserved man who valued etiquette above everything. Only those stronger or more talented than him would receive this kind of favour from him.
Wait, this kid is more talented than Sicario? That means its only a matter of time before he becomes stronger than me! S***!
A realization suddenly dawned on Silverton. The pyramid had been a full-powered technique by a world class mage with level over 100, yet a level 50 boy had destroyed it with five steps!
It took Sicario a full minute to charge the pyramid, but he destroyed it in five seconds! What type of monster is he?
Silverton and Sicario knew that they were currently far stronger than Will, but the key word was currently. If one was stronger at lower levels, one would become exponentially stronger than others of similar levels at higher levels due to ones level-surpassing talents.
At higher levels, the disparity in strength between those of the similar levels became obvious. Take Sicario and Silverton. The gap between them was only one or two levels, but because of his skill, Sicario was far stronger than Silverton. Silverton would need to gain at least ten levels to match Sicario.
Many things could give one an advantage over those at the same level, but talent, classes, titles, stats and skills were the most prevalent, especially classes and titles.
Just what insane titles and class does this boy possess?
There were many methods to gain this sort of information. In fact, some non-combat classes specialized in this sort of job. Right now, Sicario wished to head back to the Empire in order to request assistance and gain as much information about Will as possible.
The next few hours were spent discussing Wills future role within the Empire and the general structure of the organization.
The Dragonheart Empire was a behemoth with thousands upon thousands of guilds and Lords beneath it. Their greatest enemy was The Nine Rings Clan run by Musashi. Publicly, he was known as the only man on earth who rivaled Arthur, but according to Sicario, things were not that simple. Apparently there was another super power that both Arthur and Musashi were wary of, which was led by the first Emperor Genesis.
However, Genesis was only interested in improving and creating martial arts skills. He was neutral and accepted any and all to his nation. Arthur and Musashi had once battled with Genesis while they were all on the same level in a 2 v. 1 battle with neither side gaining any advantage. According to Arthur, no one of the same level could suppress Genesis. This news was a revelation to Will.
Facing both Musashi and Dragonheart and getting away unscathed? Unmatched in the same level? Ignius wasnt joking about this Genesis dude.
Genesis was, however, now many levels below Arthur and Musashi because he mainly concentrated on his martial techniques. Arthur and Musashi had mutually agreed that they would only take him on after they had dealt with the other, so Genesis was left alone for now.
The Dragonheart Empire had Arthur at the head, but Prime Minister Andreas handled most of the empires affairs. There were 6 Lords known as the 6 Supremes who ran the empire and its armies. They were the 6 strongest individuals below only Arthur himself and very powerful themselves. Each was comparable to a Ring from the Nine Rings. To become a Supreme, one had to personally battle Arthur and gain his recognition. Although the number was not limited to 6, only 6 were worthy of that title.
Andreas had a non-combat class, but his position was above that of even the Supremes. Arthur was the figurehead, but the day-to-day affairs were run by Andreas, who was rumored to have accompanied Arthur since the beginning.
The Dragonheart Empire was a martial organization that put strength above everything, so the fact that it was run by a non-combative individual surprised Will.
Will had proven his skills; thus, he was no longer Silvertons subordinate. However, Miami was still a region of great importance to the Empire, so Sicario would station someone here to make sure things went smoothly. Will was unhappy about having someone babysit him, but he had no choice in the matter. So for now, all he could do was nod his head.
His earlier performance had no doubt impressed Sicario, so Will felt confident that he could quickly enter the upper echelons of the Empire.
Including you, there are currently ten candidates for the seventh Supreme position. These candidates are people our organization puts effort into nurturing. Each Supreme Candidate has multitudes of people working for them. I will send you a list of extremely capable people to work under you. They will be the ones to ensure that everything works out smoothly in your city. All you have to do is increase your level and sharpen your skills.
Sicario passed Will a file with a list of names. On each page was a name accompanied by a picture and important details such as their abilities, levels, etc.
You may choose 10 people from that list to assist you. These ten are former Supreme Candidates who narrowly missed the bar set by our Emperor. There still exists a chance for each individual to become a Supreme, so they are usually arrogant and unruly. To ensure smooth cooperation between you and your subordinates, a Ghost such as myself will be present.
Ghosts were beings with special roles in the Empire. They were powerful users who reported directly to Andreas. They had no desire for formal posts and only ensured the prosperity of the Empire. All Ghosts wore masks, not because they wished to conceal their identities but to display their rank. The masks were not imbued with any special abilities but each was unique. Every member of the Empire who had taken the intent pill was taught a simple method to distinguish between true Ghosts masks.
Due to Miamis strategic importance and your talent, it is likely that a Ghost with a rank higher than mine will be sent. The Ghost will not follow your orders but will act as your lieutenant to ensure order and defend the territory. Of course, if Lord Solitary wishes to become a Ghost that option is open as well.
Will immediately rejected Sicarios proposal, No thank you; Im not cut out for that sort of thing. From what Will discerned, Ghosts were fanatics that worshipped Dragonheart because everytime Sicario mentioned the Empire or Dragonheart himself, a worshipping gaze would flash across his face. Will was not sure if Sicario was naturally like that or if some method had brainwashed him. Either way, he did not want to risk it himself by being nosy.
Not mentioning the many secrets on Wills body that might be discovered under the emperors scrutiny, it would negatively affect Wills plan if he became like Sicario. Who knew where he would be sent? Will needed to stay in Miami to fully utilize his advantages.
Ah yes, before I forget, Sicario I have a request, Will said after some thought.
Please go ahead, so long as we can provide it we will if it does not conflict with the Empires goals, Sicario replied.
I assure you that it does not, Will then looked at Silverton, I wish to keep attending Silverton High. Also, if for some reason I am absent, please make sure I am not expelled. I wish to graduate from that school.
Sicario didnt really understand why Will wanted to do this, but he did not object. Very well, so long as it does not prevent you from working on what the Empire requires you to do, as you know, we are preparing to invade soon. Its now time to take things seriously and the drums of war are beating. You might be required to often take action for the next few months, possibly longer.
Will smiled. Thats fine. As long as I dont get expelled Im okay with anything. Will had never forgotten the mission he had been given the moment he left King Yamas Gate.
A new quest is available. The quest is to attend Silverton High and successfully graduate from it. If the school is destroyed or you fail to graduate from this school, then you will fail the quest. Failure to complete the quest will result in being stripped of all your abilities and having your memories erased.
