Chapter 463: Strange Heaven
This chapter is updated by Unboxbee.com
The Rodin mentioned by Madama Styx was indeed a good candidate, but there was a troublesome place now. She did not know when he would appear in the Demon World…
Rodin’s appearances were completely irregular and felt very arbitrary. If they waited for him to appear in the Demon World, who knew how long it would take.
At this time, Dante, Vergil, and the others came in handy. As half-demons and Children of Taboo, they were unwilling to appear in front of a crowd of demons, so they did not participate in the meeting. But after the meeting ended, Roy and Sparda discussed with each other and found Dante and Vergil. After a brief discussion, they agreed.
Roy’s request was simple. He wanted them to go through the spatial channel to the twin world on the other side and then find a way to go to the human world to find Rodin.
As demon lords, be it Roy or Sparda, it was not easy for them to appear in human worlds, whether it was the Devil May Cry world’s or the Bayonetta world’s. But it was different for half-demons. They could move around freely, even if they were not native residents of the Bayonetta world.
Thus, the four half-demons—Dante, Vergil, Nero, and Sareth—passed through the spatial channel and set off for the other world. Of course, when they first drilled through, they should be in Heaven, and they might encounter the attacks of angels. But with Dante and the others’ strength, it should not be a problem to deal with them. They only needed to find a way to the human world as soon as possible.
After Dante and the others left, Roy and Sparda began to prepare for war. The demon lords had brought too many troops, so Roy had to recruit enough troops to balance it out. Therefore, he got Fat Tiger and Cerberus to take Cassandra to the previous battlefields of the Demon World to collect the corpses of dead demons to make an undead army while he rode Rafaro and gathered the scattered demons in the Demon World.
In fact, from this, it was apparent what one of the disadvantages of having a demon lord as the ruler of a world was. The space of the Demon World was so huge that he had to go to some remote places personally. It could not be helped. The radiation range of his magic power aura was not enough to cover the entire Demon World.
If a demon king like Samael were to come to the Demon World, there would have been no need to say anything. As long as he stayed in Demon King City, countless demons would spontaneously come and submit to him…
When Roy was gathering troops, Sparda was also helping. How should it be put? During the time they spent together, Roy did not know if it was because of Sparda’s time in the human world, but he found that it had affected his personality, causing him to have no ambitions despite being a demon lord. After Roy became the ruler of the Demon World, Sparda consciously placed himself in the position of assisting him.
Of course, this was also because Roy’s and Sparda’s goals were now in line with each other. Sparda knew very well that Mundus had broken free from the seal. Although he had escaped from the Demon World in defeat, as long as his soul was not destroyed, he would return sooner or later. Mundus was plotting to become a true demon king. If he succeeded, then when he returned, with Sparda’s strength, he would no longer be able to do anything to Mundus.
At that time, not only would he be killed, but his two children, Dante and Vergil, and even his grandson, Nero, would. The bloodline of the Sparta family might be cut off in the hands of Mundus.
This was absolutely unacceptable to Sparda, so he did his best to help Roy in hopes of totally eliminating Mundus.
The process of gathering the demon army lasted for about three days. When Roy and Sparda returned, they brought back about ten million troops. Although most of them were low-level demons, the vast number and dense scene made people feel fear just seeing it.
Coupled with the troops of Berial and the other demon lords, there was a total of more than thirty-five million demons gathered, which was almost the size of a super-large city in the human world. These thirty-five million demons assembled on the ground nearly two thousand square kilometers around Demon King City, and even then, it still appeared crowded with demons.
But this number was only about one-tenth the number of demons in the Demon World…
“That’s enough. Let the vanguard set off!” Roy said. “This density has already reached the limit. If we let the demons stay like this, it may cause them to kill each other.”
Roy’s words were equivalent to announcing that a new round of the Eternal War between Heaven and Hell had begun in the twin worlds.
Countless winged demons flying in the sky strived to be the first to fly into the spatial channel. The wingless demons on the ground piled up a wide slope that connected to the spatial channel in the air. After the tide-like low-level demons climbed to the spatial channel on the slope, they screamed and jumped into it like dumplings.
The passage rate of the spatial channel was very high. It was the kind of super-giant army portal that could accommodate at least tens of thousands of troops at the same time. This also gave the demons a chance to march on a large scale. After countless demons rushed into the spatial channel, they disappeared in the blink of an eye—they were teleported over.
This was not the first time Roy had seen such a scene. Back in the Darksiders world, the number of demons was even more exaggerated than this time. But no matter how he looked at it, he felt that this scene was extremely terrifying.
It had to be said that demons were indeed a race born for war, just like the ocean of Zerg in Starcraft. They did not require any tactics or strategies and relied purely on numbers to drown their enemies.
“Let’s go too! Let’s see what the opposite Heaven looks like…”
Roy led Julia, Benia, and the others, including Berial, Madama Styx, and other demon lords, into the spatial channel.
When passing through the spatial channel, Roy once again felt the world repulsive force acting against him. But the strength of this repulsion was not much different from when he was in the Demon World. This might be because, despite entering a new world, the Purgatory Space of this new world and the Demon World’s were originally one, so the degree was no different.
After passing through the layer of mist in the spatial channel, Roy’s vision suddenly became clear. Totally unlike the dark world of the Demon World, what he saw was a world full of light!
There was no source of light, but rays of light like sunlight filled the surrounding space. This was the power of holy light, and here was a world of light.
The moment the many weaker low-level demons teleported over, smoke rose from the surface of their skin due to the burning of holy light. These low-level demons started screaming in pain uncontrollably. Although they did not lose their lives for the time being, the pain was driving them to the point of madness. Their eyes were red and shining with bloodlust as they roared and rushed toward the battlefield where the fighting had already begun.
About five kilometers away from the spatial channel, the angels had already set up an encirclement. Roy’s guess was right. The Heaven here was already prepared for the coming war.
“There are a lot of them!” Roy looked at the distant sky in surprise. There were densely flying ancient angels, and the most numerous among them were ancient angels with bird heads and human bodies. They were the lowest-level angels. They had angel halos over their heads and held spears in their hands as they fought against the demons flooding in like a tide. Behind them were some strange-looking angels who separated into formations according to their ranks and were attacking with long-range attacks.
The number of these ancient angels indeed exceeded Roy’s expectations. There were many more angels than what he had seen in the Darksiders world. But then he remembered what Madama Styx had said before. Through the teachings of doctrines and faith, angels had received some human souls that had risen to Heaven through the ‘self-sacrifice’ ritual and made these humans into low-level angels. Thus, this number was reasonable.
Roy stood on Rafaro’s forehead and looked around. He saw some floating islands scattered at different heights, which were the foundations of Heaven. Around these floating islands were many strange light screens of runes.
These strange light screens of runes actually existed all around the spatial channel. These light screens formed a kind of ground that could be stepped on. After the wingless demons of the Demon World entered, the ground they stepped on were these light screens.
“We have to get the demons to capture those floating islands as soon as possible!” Roy immediately saw the problem and said to Berial, Madama Styx, and the others, “If the angels withdraw these light screens, then the wingless demons will lose their footing. At that time, we will lose a lot of demons.”
Berial and the others nodded and split up in several directions. They each led their troops to break through the defensive lines of the angel’s encirclement.
Seeing the appearance of the demon lords, the high-level angels on the angels’ side naturally stepped forward to join the battle. They were some really strange-looking angels. Roy saw some centaur-like angels with golden armor covering their four hooves and holding calvary long spears. They had two wings on their backs, but they did not have a head. Their large faces were actually on the abdomen.
There were also some griffin-like angels with armor covering their bodies and angel halos, full of a strange mechanical feeling. There were red ones and blue ones. The blue ones could use lightning power, while the red ones used flame power. These flying griffin angels had incredible agility. They ran back and forth among the demon army and continuously killed the low-level demons.
In addition, Roy saw angels with long monster tails that looked like geckos, faceless snakes with four wings on their backs that looked like feathered serpents, headless warrior angels who were mighty warriors and had their faces on their sword’s hilts, and so on. They were really peculiar and strange…
