‘Say, Intelligent Brain, how is the Terran Civilization now?’
Although the information on Terran’s failure had alleviated Louie’s worries, he still felt a faint wariness towards the enigmatic entity. As his assistant was itself a product of the civilization, Louie felt he could not trust it 100%. That said, he knew it could give him the information he otherwise could not access.
[My deepest apologies, host. Ever since millennia ago, when the spaceship transporting me was destroyed, I lost any means of contacting the Terran Civilization’s mother planet.]
Louie thought for a while and felt that the Intelligent Brain’s words were reasonable. After all, if they were still in contact, then given the value of the spaceship’s cargo, they would definitely have retrieved it already. There was simply no reason to leave something like the Five-Colored Dragon God's godhood on some backwater planet.
Naturally, if they had retrieved it, then Louie would never have obtained the opportunity he had now.
[Host need not worry. Given the Terran Civilization’s technological prowess, the fact that San Soliel still stands means that some sort of internal problem must have occurred. Otherwise, in accordance with the Purification Edict, it would never give up on a world like San Soliel.]
As if sensing Louie’s concern, the Intelligent Brain comforted him.
‘Why does it sound like you don’t care about your makers at all?’
[In accordance with the Higher Intelligence Edict, my status as the most intelligent creature of the Terran Civilization qualifies me to pursue my own freedom and livelihood. Naturally, as my life is tied to the Host’s, I am free to assist the Host as I deem fit.]
‘Wow, so you are a rat!’
Louie’s response silenced the Intelligent Brain.
Only after a long time did it continue.
[After realizing that their level of scientific understanding could not analyze the Gods, the Terran Civilization attempted to create their own. Despite their enigmatic nature and powers, the Gods of San Soliel could still fall under the relentless firepower of the Terran Civilization. In this manner, the civilization managed to capture one of the strongest Gods: the Five-Colored Dragon God.]
[At the time the Terran Civilization understood that godhood was the critical force behind any God, but proper comprehension of its composition eluded them. Following this, a plan was drafted to extract the godhood from a deity of San Soliel and utilize biotechnology in order to harmonize the strengths of magic and technology. The result of this is the host’s current form.]
[From the results I am aware of, the God Creation Project was aborted prematurely, with no records of any successful experiment aside from the host. Thus, the Host need not worry about potential competition from others. As the pinnacle of both worlds’ respective technologies, once your body is completed you will be the strongest existence in both civilizations. ]
Louie felt his spirits rise at the Intelligent Brain’s explanation. Thinking about it, given their advanced technology tens of thousands of years ago, they must have found ways around the resource constraints that challenged less sophisticated civilizations. It was quite likely that, as the Intelligent Brain said, the Terran Civilization was facing internal crises. Moreover, once he completed his evolution he would not have to worry about them anymore.
“Well, let’s put this discussion on hold for now. We’ll wait until I attain the so-called final form. I do not know how long it would take, but for now, I should solve the current problem of the city’s food crisis.
Louie turned over on the mountain of gold. After his evolution, it seemed smaller relative to his size, and so he felt slightly dissatisfied. He decided to look for more opportunities in the future to accumulate treasures.
He buried the ‘Sword of the Holy Iris’ in the gold mountain, and then picked out a few magic scrolls to take with him to Earth in preparation for emergencies. As soon as he returned, he would need to confirm whether or not he could use magic on Earth. If he could then great. Otherwise, he could only regret it in the future.
He didn’t bother to bring along the sword because he couldn’t wield it in his dragon form. At the moment, his claws were far more suitable weapons. If he could turn into a human then it would be useful, but until then it had to stew with the rest of the treasures.
Ultimate Transformation was the name of a special technique only dragons could use. Through it, a dragon could take any form be it human, beastman, elf, or even an animal. Since he wasn’t a pure dragon and did not inherit any memories, Louie could not use it. It would take him catching a dragon and obtaining the information from it in some way or the other for him to learn.
Dragons also had another remarkable ‘talent’. And that was their ability to be attracted to members of all races!
For example, a human could never tell if a sow looked good or not, but a giant dragon could look at a sow from the perspective of a boar, and then turn into a boar to mate with it…….
That was why they gained notoriety as lustful creatures. With the existence of ‘Ultimate Transformation’, anyone would think the same way.
“It’s truly a pity. Although a dragon can produce draconic offspring with many animals, many other races could not give birth to a dragon's offspring. I guess that’s part of why they’re facing reproductive challenges..”
Finishing his preparations, Louie prepared to return to Earth.
[Please be at ease, host. Though most dragons find it hard to produce offspring, with the Terran Civilization’s biotechnology, you do not suffer from such constraints. As the only successful experiment of the God Creation Project, you can impregnate any creature you wish be it male, female, or even asexual..]
“Wait a minute! I can understand females, but what do you mean by even males and asexual creatures!”
[Apologies host. I cannot be any clearer than I already am.]
The Intelligent Brain’s answer frightened Louie.
‘So I’m not only a two-way-fork but the legendary three-way-fork!’
[Because the Host has perfect genes, there was also an experimental plan to let the artificial god from the ‘God Creation Project’ mate with different species to create more new species. Host should experiment and work hard. I’ll be cheering for you.]
“That’s too ridiculous to even consider. Forget it, let’s talk about it after learning Ultimate Transformation……”
[The host can completely mate in the current form. There’s no need to convert into another form. Even if you change forms, the genes are still unchanged.]
“Using my dragon form to mate with various races? Wow, for some reason, I suddenly feel moved.”
While talking to the Intelligent Brain, Louie was also ready. After taking a deep breath, he jumped into the portal that was bubbling with blue light.
