Murim Recurve - Chapter 321 - Naipa King
Re’Gra and Re’Dha were fighting against the Naipa in the Metal Spring Village. As for Re’Kha, she rode her Balou and headed towards the village on the opposite side of the valley. It was named the Wood Spring Village.
It was situated in a cave that was similar in shape and size to the Metal Spring Village. But, everything in them was made from wood. It seemed this village relied on wood, and their prime export was wood carpentry.
They exchanged the wooden furniture they made with the other villages for their necessities. They seldom transacted with Burkurel City. Everything they needed was available in the numerous villages present in the valley and beyond.
And now, Re’Kha was headed towards it.
It was because at the same time the Metal Spring Village was attacked by the Naipa, the Wood Spring Village was attacked by a Sha. The Sha was shaped like a wheel with spikes on it. And, wherever it rolled, the people that it came into contact with felt their heads spin as they lost their balance.
It only happened for a short time though as they quickly got up after a breath in time. It was because the Sha was still an infant. Once it developed, its ability would also become progressively dangerous.
Re’Kha wasn’t planning to head to the Wood Spring Village first. It was only an act. As both the villages were busy, and as she was running through the valley, there were no eyes on her. Using the chance, she activated her Wind Qi perception, expanding her range to take in the entirety of the situation.
She noticed a group of Naipa standing at the top of the valley, positioned above the Wood Spring Village. And, standing at the front of the group were two slightly larger Naipas. And, worn around their necks was a thin metallic thread, so thin it was completely hidden under the folds of their skin.
Using her Sha Vision, she noticed that the thin thread around their neck was actually the shell of a Sha. And, it wasn’t one but two. And at present, the Sha from one of the threads had gone to the Wood Spring Village to attack.
As for the other one, it was residing within its shell. It too was shaped like a wheel. But then, Re’Kha turned around, looking at a lone figure that was standing at the top of the valley, situated atop the Metal Spring Village.
It too was a Naipa but was four times the size of a regular Naipa. And, it exuded a mighty presence due to its massive stature. The moment she noticed it through her Wind Qi perception, Re’Kha learned about its identity.
It was currently looking at the scene of chaos the Sha was creating in the Wood Spring Village. After all, no matter what they did, the villagers were unable to touch the Sha as its body passed right through them. And, when this happened, their heads spun as they lost their balance.
So, all they could do was run helter-skelter and try their best to avoid it; it was chaotic in the village.
Re’Kha used her Sha Vision and gazed at the Naipa King, noticing that it too was wearing a threaded collar around its neck. And, sleeping within it was another Sha, also shaped as a wheel. All the three Sha were similarly developed.
So, it seemed they had been birthed at the same time. And now, the Naipa were using them. Most of the time, a Sha worked alone. It considered all living beings as its prey. Though, it always targeted a Kalki, because only a Kalki can cause it to grow.
There were some Sha possessing special abilities that allowed them to grow by even attacking the beasts. But such types of Sha were rare. And now, it seemed the three Sha were having a Harmonious relationship with the Naipa.
The Naipa would carry their shells to different locations for them to attack. And in return, they would protect the Naipa against any foes that tried to hunt them. This way, both parties would benefit.
Even though a Naipa was intelligent, it wasn’t capable of achieving such a feat. But, when a Naipa King was involved, everything changed. A Naipa King had intelligence on par with a Harmoniser. Moreover, if given enough time and experience, it would even be able to understand their language.
Every Beast King was a special existence. Normally, a beast group of 300 wasn’t scary. It could be dealt with. But, a beast group of 300 lead by a Beast King was powerful enough to almost destroy an entire City.
After all, a Beast King not only led its beast group but at times, it was even able to include numerous animals in the mix. After all, every beast race had an animal counterpart. The Naipas too had an animal variant that was half their size.
And at times, a Naipa would be birthed in them that acted as their leader. So, there were numerous groups of Naipa animal variants that were led by a Naipa. That’s how their population was replenished.
So, even if all the Naipa were annihilated, as long as their animal variant existed, they would birth the Naipa sooner or later and replenish the population of the Naipa eventually. This was true for all beast races.
And when a Beast King was birthed, all the animal counterparts of their respective race received a boost in strength. From possessing a tenth of the beast’s strength, they would grow to possess half a beast’s strength. They wouldn’t become a beast though, but the explosive growth to their physique would make them dangerous.
And considering their explosive numbers, they would form a tide large enough to overwhelm a city. It was all thanks to the intelligence a Beast King possessed. After all, even for a Harmoniser at the peak, killing it would be impossible alone.
Only a Martial Master would be able to do it. After all, the actual peak of the Harmoniser Realm was a Martial Master. And, a Beast King too stood at the peak of the Harmoniser Realm.
