Chapter 197: Diving into the Chrysalis

Aldrich paused for a tense moment as he heard Rella’s words of challenge.

Valera immediately followed suit, standing rmly beside him with a strong grip

on her shield. His magical energy swirled around him in a rippling aura of

green, simmering in a state right before it boiled up into full blown


He had never been this tense even with someone as powerful as the Death Lord

because he understood the type of person she was. She might have joked about

ghting Aldrich, but at the end of the day, it was just that: a joke. He could tell

this in her mannerisms. In her non-committal body language and her barely

concealed smile that made it obvious that most of her words were to be taken


But Rella was nearly the complete opposite. She had an easygoing and

condent demeanor about her that made it seem as if most of her words were

light hearted, but there was something a little more unhinged about her, in the

way she smiled, in her voice, that made her far more unpredictable.

That, and her backstory. Rella was the daughter of Rathos, highest god of the

Eluman peoples that were the equivalent of humans in the game. Her mother

was just some nameless priestess he had forced himself upon and promptly

forgot about.

When Rella reached her teenage years, Fiola, goddess and wife to Rathos, saw

Rella as an abomination and a symbol of her husband’s indelity. Thus, Fiola

cast Rella down into the depths of a dungeon full of the vilest creatures capable

of enacting the most torturous ends known to man.

There, Rella survived for forty years by herself, and when she emerged, she was

nothing but an uncontrollable ball of violence and fury. Aldrich did not know

how exactly the Death Lord managed to get Rella sane enough to work for her.

What he did know was that he did not trust in Rella’s mental stability enough to

hold herself back from suddenly unleashing the full brunt of her power against

Aldrich. And, as Aldrich was now, vastly underleveled compared to his game

counterpart, Rella’s endgame level strength would undeniably demolish him.

Evidently, Valera felt the same sense of threat too. Her battle instincts told her

to be cautious of Rella because she was wildly unpredictable.

“Hehehe, that is a nice aura ye have,” said Rella. “It would be a wondrous

feeling to shatter it with my own two hands.”

“There will be no shattering of anything tonight,” said the Death Lord rmly,

her voice resonating with authority.

Rella looked to the Death Lord and nodded without much resistance. “Course’. I

was just bored was all, sitting in that pillar all day.”

“I’m surprised: I thought you would have had your ll of ghting after sparring

with the Death Lord,” said Aldrich. This was, of course, a pointed question

meant to scope out reactions from both Rella and the Death Lord. Using those,

he could try to determine how much of what the Death Lord said was true about

her injuries.

“Hah, her?” said Rella. “By this point, I’ve sparred her enough to be quite bored

of what she can do. And she never goes all out with me, even when I beg her to.”

“If we both go all out,” said the Death Lord. “This realm crumbles.

I already grant you much in sparring sessions to alleviate you from the

boredom of this task of manually channeling the Bell of Absolution as its


To let you go all out on top of that is simply too much.”

“Rella wasn’t even going all out and she managed to do that much damage to

one side of you?” said Aldrich.

The Death Lord did not respond to this. It was Rella that took over the

answering, and she was decidedly harder to read. Perhaps because of the many

years she had spent in a dungeon, or maybe it was because she was half god,

but her ability to make proper facial expressions was o in an almost eerie way.

“I would be ashamed of meself if my void lightning could not do even that

much,” said Rella. “I have trained it all my life to slay gods, no matter how

tough their skin, barriers, or wills are. And it has felled more than one. Mel is no


“An unlucky hit, then?” Aldrich asked this directly to the Death Lord this time.

“As unlucky as can be.” The Death Lord shrugged the topic away. “We are not

here to discuss my sparring injuries. Let us proceed with the awakening of your


“Alright then,” said Aldrich. For now, Rella had covered for the Death Lord.

Explanations were given for why Rella could have just left this post acting as a

conduit for the bell.

The sparring sessions were temporary, probably made in short enough

intervals that Rella’s absence here was not felt. On top of that, it was actually

plausible for Rella to have harmed the Death Lord to the degree of taking her

arm even with a minor eort.

Rella’s signature attack involved channeling lightning as her father did.

However, unlike her father’s divine lightning which shone a brilliant hue of

bright white, her lightning was pitch black and held the property of

disintegrating whatever it struck.

The disintegration eect was true damage, ignoring any resistances and

bypassing almost all barriers. On top of that, it had an incredibly potent anti

healing eect as well.

Theoretically, it was possible that the Death Lord had gotten careless and taken

a hit from it.

Aldrich still had more than his fair share of doubts, but the more tried to press

the matter, the more suspicious it would get on his end.

“Oh? A new Boundary, is it?” Rella looked Aldrich up and down. “This young

lad of a lich has one already? Not bad. Maybe it will be worth allowing him to

live and ripen into a proper challenge.”

“He is my Usurper, after all,” said the Death Lord like a proud mother. “If he

was even a shade less worthy of my powers, I would have put up far more of a

struggle in allowing him to receive it.”

“Aren’t I the only option you have?” said Aldrich. “Not like there are any others

to choose from.”

“That is true,” agreed the Death Lord. “But I shall say this. Were you weak

willed any, I would have been content to allow my realm to fade into oblivion

without ever passing it on to you.

After all, I am already dead. No, wait, I am dead twice over, come to think of it. I

had my turn to do what I wished. Now it is yours.”

“Come on then,” said Rella as she held out her hand to Aldrich. “If this will not

lead into anything exciting, best to get it over with quickly.”

“Finally.” Medula sighed. “Someone that speaks my language.”

Aldrich stared at Rella’s open hand with some level of hesitation.

“Rest assured, Medula and I will both keep Rella’s tendencies under control,”

said the Death Lord. “And she is not actually the one infusing you with energy.

It is the Bell of Absolution.

Rella is simply a conduit. Her God Core allows her to multiply mana that ows

into her, making her the perfect channel for the bell, but she cannot actually

change how much ow the bell grants. That is strictly under my domain.

And I will try to ensure not a unit more than is needed ows into you.”

“This had better work as you describe it, snake,” said Valera.

“Of course it will, my dear. After all, you are here as his contingency,” said the

Death Lord. She raised a hand towards the bell. Sigils of green lighted upon her

arm in a complex weave of patterns.

Power radiated out from these sigils, distorting the space around them. Unlike

runes that gods used to manifest their powers, the Death Lord and other ‘dark’

entities used sigils instead. The only exception were demons, but that was

because they were invaders to the Elduin realm that got their rst foothold

through a god’s runes, hence their preference for using runes.

“O bell of mine, I call upon you to ring. To bring forth the death knell that has

claimed both the lowliest and mightiest of soul.”

In response to the Death Lord’s voice, the enormous bell began to oscillate. The

intricate patterns of dragons and lilies upon its frame lit up in bright purple,

emanating a lavender hue that melded with the green sphere around it.

“Around…this much should be enough,” whispered the Death Lord as she

snapped her ngers. The bell tolled once, its great bulk softly moving from side

to side with a heavy and slow motion. As it did so, it let out a deep and eerie

ring, like what one would expect a bell of its size to sound like in some dark,

watery depths.

The sound traveled not by Aldrich, but through him, radiating in vibrations all

across his body of bone.

The pillar of green energy underneath the bell that usually stood unchanging

and stable now ickered chaotically with newly introduced energy.

“Now take my hand,” said Rella walked up to Aldrich, standing over him while

holding out her open hand. “And walk into the pillar with me. When we step in,

you ought to feel the power owing into you.”

“The moment you step in, you will enter your Boundary. Steel your mind as

much as possible, Death Walker,” said the Death Lord. “There are some Liches

that meet their Boundary cores and lose their sanity, becoming little more than

raving madmen.”

“That’s another risk you didn’t tell me about,” said Aldrich.

“Not a risk.” The Death Lord smiled at Aldrich. “Did I not say? I would not have

accepted you were you weak willed. You can handle this much. Now go.”
