     Linley Baruch 

The story's main character, Linley was born in the Baruch clan, one of the Yulan continent's big families, sadly for him the Family had been reduced to three members: his father, his younger brother and himself. Before his sixth birthday, his father tells Linley his family once was famous for being one of the Supreme Warriors families, and in his veins runs the blood of the Dragon Warriors, sadly after the ages the blood's been too diluted and Linley lacks the ability to access this power, even more, this leaves Linley unable to train as a warrior. Looking to make a name for himself and recover the family's honor Linley decides to train as a Magus instead, and with the help of the Doehring, an ancient Saint level Magus, whose spirit resides in the Coiling Dragon Ring, and Bebe, a magical beast of unknown race, he will embark in world changing adventures.

Linley's a dual element magus of Earth and Wind, but continued to train as a warrior while attending the Ernst Institute. He later awakens his Dragon Warrior blood by consuming the blood and magicrystal of a 9th rank dragon.

  • BFS: His adamantine greatword, Bladeless. Uses it often in conjunction with his Laws of Earth-empowered attacks
  • Child Prodigy: Linley can be considered this for his outstanding progress, reaching 7th rank of Magus when he was 17, feat only surpassed once in more than 10000 years, Linley says it's mostly his hard word and training.

    • Dishing Out Dirt: He has exceptional aptitude to earth element which his spirit mentor Doehring Cowart guarantees
    • Playing with Fire: His affinity with it is rather average but still gains understanding of the element faster than your usual deity. Reaction of the others is not knowing whether to laugh or cry.
    • Blow You Away: Learns through an examination that he also has exceptional affinity with the wind element
    • Making a Splash: Due to the Ancestral Baptism, Linley gained a Water Demigod and aptitude on par or greater with his Earth aptitude.

  • Yin-Yang Bomb: After suffering a soul attack from the Paragon of Fate, Magnus, Linley became able to fuse four different elemental laws allowing him to be stronger than regular Paragons by severalfold.


Bebe's normally a 20 cms long black mouse, but don't let appearances confuse you, Bebe's a magical beast a Godeater Rat, one of two specimens who naturally reach God level in adulthood, the other godeater rat is Beirut, the continent's real ruler, as such he has plenty of incredible abilities, between them lay the ability to change his body size several times, bite through almost anything and move at incredible speeds. Bebe created a bond of equals with Linley and as such is his soul brother, they share an emotional link and can talk mentally through great distances.

Beruit, called the King of the Forest of Darkness, is the Highgod in charge of the Yulan plane and controls access to the Necropolis of the Gods. He lives in a metallic castle and rarely gets involved in the outside world. When he lays down a rule, however, you follow it. If you don't, you become an object lesson for the others.

  • Blow You Away: Has a Highgod Wind Clone And turns out he refined a low wind sovereign spark with that clone 10,000 years ago.
  • The Dreaded: He has a very high reputation in Infernal Realm and the one responsible that the Four Beasts Clans are still around even after 10,000 years of the demise of their Sovereign-level ancestors
  • Super Power Lottery: Can kill deities easily by causing their divine sparks to leave them and can only be resisted by Sovereigns and Paragons. The artifacts he forges out of Divine Sparks are near peerless and only fall short of Sovereign artifacts.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Underestimating Beruit is not a good idea, even if you are a powerful Highgod. He may not be as old as you, but he is still capable of blocking your attacks with back of his head.
