Fey Evolution Merchant - Chapter 1274 - Shadow Piercing Back Hibernation
According to Shadow’s reply, Lin Yuan now knew that the improvement in the ability of Hidden Shadow/Killer Shadow lay in that it now enabled Shadow to shatter non-living beings and inflict multiplied damage on living beings.
Shadow used an assassination style of combat.
The changes to Hidden Shadow/Killer Shadow increased Shadow’s damage power and enabled it to attack targets that were stronger than it was effectively.
When Shadow saw Lin Yuan’s expression, it knew that he was very satisfied with the improvement in Hidden Shadow/Killer Shadow. This delighted Shadow and spurred it on to prove itself even further.
Before Lin Yuan asked Shadow what the new natural skill it obtained was, Shadow said, “Lord Dictator, the new natural skill I gained when I evolved to Apostle is called Shadow Piercing Back Hibernation. It’s much stronger than Hidden Shadow/Killer Shadow. It will allow me to lock a shadow-possessing target within a set area. I will appear behind the target through its shadow and assassinate it. When I’m using Shadow Piercing Back Hibernation on a target, the other shadow-possessing targets in the area will be blinded by shadows. When I stab a target with my nails, I’ll also be able to extract the target’s vitality to heal my wounds.”
Lin Yuan almost started clapping for Shadow.
If what Shadow said was true, Shadow Piercing Back Hibernation seemed almost too powerful! It would allow Shadow to move freely behind targets in a set area using shadows.
Normally, the back of every lifeform was their blindspot, and it was the place that the lifeform would be least able to respond to in the shortest time possible. This position might not be the target’s weak spot, but it would still greatly increase Shadow’s attack’s success rate.
Moreover, Shadow could achieve this even without activating Shadow Piercing Back Hibernation.
But when Shadow did activate Shadow Piercing Back Hibernation, it would be able to blind all other targets in the area and prevent them from going to the aid of Shadow’s current target. This also greatly increased Shadow’s attack’s success rate.

Meanwhile, the ability to drain a target’s vitality to heal itself would increase Shadow’s endurance during combat and enable it to stand toe to toe against stronger opponents by killing other targets and continuously healing its wounds.
Lin Yuan felt that Shadow Piercing Back Hibernation fit Shadow’s physique perfectly and allowed it to become an even better assassin.
This would enable Shadow to strike fear into any lifeform of the same grade.
Lin Yuan looked down at the shorter Shadow and stretched out his hand to ruffle its white hair as he said with a smile, “Shadow, you’re now strong enough to defeat ten of your past selves. If we ever have a chance to enter the abyssal world in the future, you can accept any lifeform that catches your fancy as your believer. Alternatively, if you see any interesting dimensional lifeform in the marsh world, you can accept it as well.”
Shadow was shocked. It had been the most scorned creature in the abyssal world not long ago. It had still been a captive within the purple-golden cage a month ago.
But now, it had increased not only its power but also become an Apostle, which it had never dreamed that it would become.
This all came from the Dictator standing before him.
Along the way, a feeling besides respect rose within Shadow.
Actually, Shadow had already decided which believer it was going to accept.
Rather than the horned fire-element-wielding demons it had used to envy, it preferred to accept many of its kind.
It wanted to declare loudly to the entire abyssal world that the Invisible Demons were not pathetic creatures. It wanted to use its army of Invisible Demons to gain the respect of all other demons.
Hence, Shadow told Lin Yuan about its idea candidly, “Lord Dictator, I only want to accept Invisible Demons as my believers and Favored Believers. I will create a team of assassins to serve you.”
After some thought, Lin Yuan found Shadow’s idea to be achievable.
Sky City’s white-clothed followers were more like soldiers and could not perform the job of assassins.
It was inevitable that Sky City needed to spill blood in order to expand.
Hence, Sky City needed a sharp dagger that could perform jobs in the dead of night.
The team of Invisible Demon assassins formed by Shadow would be able to fulfill this job.

Although Invisible Demons were rare in the abyssal world, it would not be difficult for Lin Yuan to achieve this.
All he had to do was ask Long Tao to look out for Invisible Demons when he ventured into the Class 6 abyss dimensional rift.
At that moment, Lin Yuan thought about the ability Faith Gift or Robbery, which Dark Blue had gained the previous night.
Faith Gift or Robbery would enable Dark Blue to inject faith power into a target to strengthen its faith power. This was the gift part of the ability.
The robbery part of the ability would allow Dark Blue to use the faith power in its body as the standard to drain faith power from targets with less faith power than it had.
But as strong as Faith Gift or Robbery was, the amount of faith power in Dark Blue’s body was limited.
However, Dark Blue also had the ability Faith Application, which allowed Lin Yuan to inject faith power into Dark Blue when they were fused together.
This would enable Lin Yuan to use Faith Gift or Robbery in the fused state as well. If so, the amount of faith power in Lin Yuan’s body would become the standard, and he would be able to give or take faith power from targets with less faith power than him.
Lin Yuan decided to test Faith Power Gift or Robbery when he saw the totem in Shadow’s hand.
He had already turned into a mermaid once in front of the Shadow the last time he used Faith Application. Hence, he had nothing to be embarrassed about doing it a second time.
