He was absolutely shook at the realization that they were probably not the mastermind as they had been silenced once their uses were gone.
Coming to the conclusion that it was someone else who had been controlling everything in the dark.
It was impossible for Dean as he would've immediately killed Rose on his way here before eventually attempting to kill him since he was in a weakened state.
Dean laughed at the excited Christian, he never expected that such information would cause him to jump to hurried conclusions.
Realizing that his reactions were unrefined, Christian sat back onto his bed and started to talk about what has happened to him in the recent months.
His family had now renounced any responsibilities he once held meaning he was now exiled from the Vikander clan.
Any inherent riches he would get or the connections he once held were now all gone.
Rose's family completely cut off their engagement however they knew that Rose was no longer useful for political uses because she was considered 'used goods'.
In order to make sure that any family that held a grudge with the Vikander Clan, Christian's father completely crippled his cultivation in front of many people.
The pure humiliation and the understanding that Christian was not worth the time, he had learnt to become much more mature.
He said those words to test the waters of Dean and he had prepared something just in case.
To his surprise, Dean only raised his eyebrows at the unexpected news but had no other emotions that expressed any malicious ideas.
A sigh of relief escaped his mouth at the hopes Dean was willing to commit to a peaceful negotiation.
"Let's make a deal. If you're willing to tell me the mastermind who wants to kill me and the people that betrayed me, I'm willing to tell you everything I know about cultivation as well as who killed Leonard."
Dean heard the last part and was frustrated that Christian currently held the upper hand. If he wanted to get the information from the two teachers then he would have to pay with time and dedication to their teachings.
However he noticed the phrasing of Christian's words.
'Tell me the mastermind who wants to kill me...'
This suggests that he thinks that it's very unlikely that the mastermind was the man before him and from the way he suddenly screamed at the news of Anne and Pierre dying gave him an idea.
If he asked Christian to say his information first then it would seem that Dean was uncertain of himself. Instead what he should do knowing that Christian has no cultivation realm is to say his side first, at the very least half of the conditions.
Referring back to the interrogations done by the teachers, that special guest and the black rectangle, Dean made a plan.
Acting as if he was pondering on his thoughts, Dean finally broke the silence.
"Fine. This person tends to be called 'M'. Anybody that is found to be a nuisance would be discarded like Anne and Pierre while those that have yet to be disposed will have erased memories. M's figure will be blurred at best."
"M seems to be a master with controlling a person using their desires and thoughts."
Christian was shook when he heard the motive of his newfound enemy, M.
'Have I been discovered?'
His memories were far too useful and probably made him stand out when he compared himself to others.
Realizing that he stuck out like a sore thumb, Christian knew that he was probably too self confident which made his real identity exposed.
The guess that aligned with what he knew was that M was most likely a Soul Magician.
Very different compared to his Tribute Magic.
It was an ancient art that would tamper with the soul, effecting the mind, body and cultivation. If one went to the very extreme and abandoned their humanity, they would consume souls of monsters before eventually having a monstrous body.
M may have been scared off by the swordsman that helped him at the gate but to have such power meant that he probably wanted any memories of the life before him.
Dean was nothing more than a tool that had taken things too far.
This news piqued his interest as the fire of revenge lit within his eyes that he could kill this person.
Once living a life of a king, it should be expected that Christian would haev a wide range of knowledge in many areas in order to become a ruler.
It was more formal knowledge rather than practical knowledge.
He would be able to know the 50 ingredients that are necessary for creating 3 different formulas of a pill however to actually brew one would be far more difficult.
To broaden his horizons about the weaknesses of other cultivators, his father would often pick manuals that were available to public and be told to dissect the failures in them.
An example would be [Iron Palm]
It was very limited in where it could take a practitioner to on the laws of cultivation.
But the main weakness was that it would disable the user's hand once they are old and it forces to user to numb their nerves in order for it to become more powerful.
Just a short term boost will cause a person to be a prey for others.
That's why he would be able to know manuals besides [Imperial Mandate]
He wrote other books in the case that he would forget them but at first he didn't need them because he wanted to reclaim his throne
Rulers will be dethroned and poisoned by beloved, infighting will become the norm for riches.
It was stupid to go back to such a struggling life.
Instead live life carefree of such troubles and rob kingdoms if you want riches.
However in order to cultivate such a manual... the costs are incredibly high.
