I Am Overlord - Chapter 897
The wolfman showed no fear despite facing the joint attack of four Heaven Battling Realm experts. He clenched both his hands into fists and hurled them out, instantly materializing several howling giant wolves that pounced at the four attackers.
The four wolves were akin to ancient wolf demons. They were incomparably powerful, instantly crushing through Situ Mingyu’s palm and Mo Luo’s punch and smashing away the attacks sent by Zhang Wujing and Shadowflash in an extremely overbearing manner.
Even so, the wolves couldn’t pose much of a threat to the four, either. At most, they were able to fight the four evenly. At this time, the wolfman personally attacked Situ Mingyu. Moving as fast as lightning, he seemed to phase through space as his claws instantly tore at Situ Mingyu.
Situ Mingyu reacted deftly, sending over 10 palm attacks forward before he could stop the attack. But doing so, he was forced on his back foot. He paled as he exclaimed, “Peak Heaven Battling Realm? How is this possible?”
He himself was a late-stage Saint, far stronger than regular Saints. But this wolfman had actually forced him back with one attack. It was obvious how terrifying the wolfman was.
After the successful attack, the wolfman did not press on against Situ Mingyu. Rather, he shifted his target and sent a kick at Mo Luo. It was as though a beam had fallen from heaven upon him. Even after using both his arms to block it, he was sent flying away while spewing blood. The skin on both his legs cracked open, and both his arms were as good as crippled.
Meanwhile, Shadowflash had snuck behind the wolfman, and he repeatedly clawed at the wolfman with his steel claws. His claws were terrifyingly powerful, as though they could tear through even mountains of metal.
However, when the claws struck, the wolfman did not bleed. Rather, it merely created sparks, as though the attacks had landed on the hardest metal in existence.
Shadowflash was alarmed and retreated without a second thought. The wolfman spun around and roared, “Get lost! Awoooooo!”
A powerful howl rumbled out.
This was a terrifying sound attack exclusive to the wolf demons, an innate ability the heavens had granted them after countless years of howling at the moon. This attack wasn’t as destructive as the lion’s roar, but it could penetrate one’s soul, and it couldn’t be blocked.
Shadowflash felt an intense impact hit his soul, and he was sent flying, bleeding from his head’s seven apertures.
When Zhang Wujing saw what happened, he decisively stopped attacking. Instead, he shouted at the newly arrived elders, “Elders, get into formation and arrest this wolfman!”
Dozens of Heaven Battling Realm elders had appeared in a short period of time. Only an ancient academy like the Dragon Phoenix Academy was capable of amassing such power so easily.
When the elders heard the command, terrifying waves of energy spread everywhere, forming a blockade as they prepared to attack the wolfman. Even if the wolfman was a peak Heaven Battling Realm expert, surviving the attacks of so many elders would be intensely difficult.
Right as the elders were about to attack, the wolfman stopped attacking and took out a command token. “Halt. Look at what I have in my hand!”
Everyone there had excellent vision, and they could clearly see the item in the wolfman’s hand at one glance. They exclaimed in alarm, “High-level elder token!”
A high-level elder token would only be issued to those at the late-stage Heaven Battling Realm and beyond or to previous generation elders. Thus, seeing this wolfman taking out such a token shocked them all.
Situ Mingyu responded swiftly, “He must have killed an elder to steal this command token! Everyone, don’t be fooled!”
Everyone recovered from their shock, and they found what Situ Mingyu said plausible. After all, none of them had seen this wolfman before. If he was an elder like them, how could they not know him?
“How idiotic. If I’m not the elder, how can I activate the elder token?” said the wolfman as the token in his hand shone brightly. A dragon and a phoenix floated out and swirled around it, looking simple yet majestic.
This was the high-level elder token of the Dragon Phoenix Academy. Only by using a special technique combined with the token owner’s blood essence would the token be activated. Even if the owner lost a token, nobody else would be able to activate it. Thus, activating the token was proof of one’s identity.
Everyone was stunned to see the wolfman activate the high-level elder token. They were confused. When had this wolfman joined the academy?
“Wolf guard, why did you leave the Back Graveyard?” suddenly, the principal’s voice sounded.
Then, the principal’s figure appeared in the air. He clearly knew the wolfman as he had not displayed any hostility.
The other elders greeted the principal respectfully, “Lord principal.”
With such a big incident happening in the academy, as a principal, he had to show himself.
The principal ignored all the elders and continued to question the wolf guard, “Wolf guard, you have not answered my question.”
Wolf guard was not the wolfman’s name. Rather, it was what a group of people was collectively called. The academy had a battle squad known as the Wolf Guards, and they were stationed at the Back Graveyard.
These were the combat servants subdued by the experts of the academy a long time ago. As this squad was extremely strong and its members were fully subservient to the academy experts, the guards were given elder tokens as well. They generally resided in the Back Graveyard and rarely showed themselves in the academy.
Very few people in the academy knew of them, not even some of the previous generation elders. Without reaching a certain level of strength, one would not be qualified to know this secret.
The wolf guard met the principal’s gaze and said, “The young master was nearly murdered by these people. My master ordered me to take the young master to the Back Graveyard.”
The principal’s face darkened. He looked at Xiang Shaoyun behind the wolfman, and his face turned solemn as he asked, “What happened exactly? Who can give me an explanation!”
As the principal, he knew very well whose disciple Xiang Shaoyun was. And now, someone had actually injured Xiang Shaoyun so badly and had even disfigured him. It was the same as slapping that lord’s face.
It was no wonder that a wolf guard was deployed. If something happened to Xiang Shaoyun, would that lord turn the entire academy upside down? The principal did not dare to doubt that lord’s strength. That was the academy’s oldest individual, and not even the grand elders dared to guess his strength.
Xiao Wei spoke before anyone else, “Lord principal, it is my fault for failing to protect Xiang Shaoyun. He was arrested under the order of Elder Mo Luo, who, alongside Elder Situ, wanted to execute Xiang Shaoyun. Lord wolf guard was forced to make a move to save Xiang Shaoyun, and that resulted in the current conflict.”
