Void Evolution System - Chapter 826
The Roaring Dragon Cavalry was truly a unit to be envied. Everywhere they moved, death followed, and regardless of how reckless and chaotic their approach seemed, they were in perfect harmony to the point where one questioned how many hundreds of years of practice it took to become so synchronized.
A group of three Nox fighting a member of the cavalry suddenly had their heads blown off. An airbike sped by without stopping, and just as it stopped, the original fighter stuck his spear to the side without hesitation.
A furious Nox being slammed into the outstretched spear, unable to stop in time. The Nox impaled itself, and if that wasn’t humiliating enough, it was then swung around like a hammer to kill its peers until it died completely.
In another section of the battlefield, two airbikes flew through the air as if partaking in a mating ritual. They spiraled up and dove down, seemingly ignoring the war below them entirely.
“Take care of the crazy ones first!” A Nox being shouted.
The roaring dragon cavalry was too strong. However, their strength came from machines. As long as their machines could be broken…
A group of over ten late-stage Nox shot into the air to confront those two. They kept their distance and carefully circled the pair.
Just as the Nox gave the order to attack, the two Roaring Dragon Cavalry members grinned at each other.
“See you on the other side.”
“Hell yeah. If you die first, I’m taking Jenny for myself!”
“Hahaha, in your dreams!”
The two spread their arms and dropped off their airbikes, seemingly to avoid dying in the following explosion.
The Nox didn’t care about these drivers at all. They immediately went for the airbikes, seizing control of them.
“Report to the Commander and await his instruction!” The head Nox said.
“Yes, si—h-huh?” His subordinate’s face paled in the midst of his affirmation.
“What is it?!” The Nox asked.
“I…I can’t control this thing!”
Those were the last words heard from the subordinate. In the next instant, his body was dragged along by a rogue airbike on a journey unlike any other!
“AHHHHHHH!” He screamed in fear as the world blurred around him. Before long, only a single target stood out in his vision.
Ufta was the name of the Nox giant. At this rate, the only possible means of survival for this subordinate Nox was Ufta.
He dragged the airbike’s handles, desperately trying to swerve in the giant’s direction. The action was actually far simpler than expected.
From the distance, Ufta noticed the incoming airbike.
His singular eye narrowed. Rather than human breath, he smelled his own people.
His mind immediately went into confusion.
As someone whose form mirrored a cyclops, his vision wasn’t his best aspect. Rather, he usually used his sense of smell more than anything else. With his nose, he could differentiate a concoction of a thousand smells into its base components easily.
The sight of an airbike mixed with the smell of the Nox was jarring, making Ufta hesitate for a second, but it wasn’t much time.
Whether it was a Nox or a Human, it was best to kill first and think later.
He pulled his fist back as if loading a cannon. When the airbike was still several meters away, he’d already let loose his punch.
“Wait! Wait! Wait!”
The subordinate Nox’s futile shouts received no ears. The claws of death seemed to suffocate him as that fist got nearer and nearer to him.
In the last second…
“Save our comrade!”
An airbike shot forward. It was sleek black, but left purple and red streaks in its wake.
It moved so fast that its presence could only be determined by the sound its speed produced.

Damien solemnly focused on his flight path. He swerved through countless Nox and shot under the loose airbike.
The world seemed to move in slow motion.
Damien crossed under the airbike.
He brushed his hand across its surface.
The bike began to dematerialize.
A card fell into Damien’s hand.
The eyes of every Roaring Dragon Cavalry member widened at once.
And at the same time, they furiously retreated.
All in a spark of an instant as Damien was under that airbike, these events occurred.
Before the instant could even end, Damien was already several meters away.
What was left in the air was a subordinate Nox flying forward with the momentum of the airbike…
…and a giant’s fist that was already too far into its motion to stop.
A terrifying shockwave spread as the fist moved forward, but without the airbike to take its impact, the force spread into the Nox Army in the surroundings.
They never expected an attack from within their own lines. With a Commander presiding over the battle, it was impossible for the Nox to act as wantonly as usual.
This drop in their usual cautiousness was fatal.
The giant, Ufta’s punch instantly killed several hundred 4th class Nox who’d yet to enter the late stages. Even many late-stage 4th-class Nox were injured in the process.
“GOOD!” Ezio accidentally exclaimed far louder than he’d meant to. It was almost to the point of being a roar itself.
He couldn’t help it.
His blood was boiling.
The original plan obviously didn’t involve Damien, and even without his interference, a similar result would’ve come about.
However, Damien’s quick thinking and willingness to take risks allowed them to achieve an even greater result without sacrificing an airbike as the original plan provoked.
“Everyone charge! Don’t waste this opportunity!”
The Nox were confused by the sudden attack, and now that Ufta was also in a disoriented state, it was the perfect time to carpet bomb and slaughter.
Therefore, that’s exactly what they did.
The Roaring Dragon Cavalry clearly displayed why they were so renowned. Ufta was slain rapidly once the Nox’s strong defense line was broken. With the Roaring Dragon Squad coming together to fight him, who had no support, it was a minor task. After finishing it, they eliminated hundreds of Nox within a minute, and before anyone could catch their tail, they’d already retreated.
“Hahaha! Damien, you damn dog! You didn’t tell me you were so good!” Ezio exclaimed over their transmission channel.
“Haha, if I didn’t prove it now, when would I have the option?” Damien responded with a smile. He took his time to enjoy the compliments of his fellow squad members as they rendezvoused a distance away from the battlefield.
It didn’t take much to earn their respect. Since Damien was truly a skilled fighter rather than a random newbie, there was absolutely no reason to hold prejudice against him.
As such, the Roaring Dragon Cavalry’s further strategies always included Damien.
The squad was amazing, this much became far more apparent when their current atmosphere was compared to the rest of the army.
The Roaring Dragon Cavalry’s support would definitely cause waves that supported the frontline, but until then…
It was a brutal battle.
Thousands, hundreds of thousands died rapidly.
When the two armies were compared, they weren’t that different in strength. It was difficult for either side to gain an absolute advantage, but with the Nox having more troops, it was obvious who’d win if the fight was drawn out.
Something needed to be done.
The three guild branch managers took it upon themselves to be this “something.”
If they could kill Aarish, the Nox Commander, the tides would shift greatly in their favor.
However, for them to kill a 4th revolution master, regardless of their combined strength, was a deathly task.
