The Yun family was one of the three largest families in Chunfeng Town. They had already settled here before Chunfeng Town became famous. They had a thousand years of history and a profound heritage. The Yun family was once a very glorious family which the other families in Chunfeng Town could only look up to in the last few centuries. This wasn't only because the Yun family was rich and had an astounding amount of assets, but also because they had a summoner a century ago!
Summoner was a mysterious profession that everyone in the Vast Continent knew about. Countless people yearned for it and countless people were heartbroken because of it. Summoners and mages were the same. They all used their own mental strength to communicate with various elements in nature. However, the biggest difference between summoners and mages was that summoners could tame those powerful and fierce Magic Beasts.
A summoner could be comparable to the army of an empire. Once they summoned their Magic Beasts, they could play fast and loose and be invincible! Even though mages and warriors were also strong and indestructible, they could only lower their heads in front of the summoners, this mysterious and powerful profession.
What made people crazy about summoners was that since they also used their mental strength, summoners were very knowledgeable in magic. A summoner would definitely be a mage as well, but it was undoubtedly a foolish dream if a mage wanted to have the abilities of a summoner. The power of summoners wasn't just about the power of their own magic, but also the most important factor, the Magic Beasts of the summoners!
Magic Beasts were the most terrifying and powerful beings in the Vast Continent. This race was as mysterious as the summoners. They were mysterious, unpredictable, powerful and vicious. Countless creatures that humans couldn't understand were hiding deep in the Beast Ridge, but the kinds of Magic Beasts that humans had known about were already astonishing enough.
If a warrior or a mage wasn't powerful enough, he wouldn't dare to fight with a Magic Beast one-on-one. However, summoners were different. Their mysterious and unpredictable power could make the Magic Beasts their own. Magic Beasts which other people dared not touch were like obedient pets in the hands of the summoners. This made many people jealous!
The Emperors of all the empires hoped that they could have their own summoners. Once they got one, it would mean that they had a powerful Magic Beast, a mysterious and unpredictable being! If this summoner kept growing, then his empire would become unstoppable and could step on the other empires forever!
And yet, the mystery and power of the summoners also led to the scarcity and rareness of this profession. In the last thousand years, less than five summoners had appeared on the East Continent.
Because of bloodline, there was a shocking number of warriors on the East Continent. Achievements developed on the road of warriors were located at the top of the pyramid. They were physically strong and well-developed and they had powerful strength. This gave the four empires on the East Continent an unbeatable military force and the empires also advocated physical strength. Even though they were born with weak physical strength, there were still countless mages on the East Continent, but their number was incomparable with that of the warriors.
And yet, everyone on the East Continent had a wish in their mind. Most of them might be born and destined not to have great achievements in mental strength, but this didn't stop each of them from having a dream. They all dreamed of becoming a summoner!
Every child was given the expectation of becoming a summoner when they were born. Although the result was always the same, everyone was still passionate about it, looking forward to it generation after generation. And the expectation of thousands of years had finally come to fruition. Even though there were less than five summoners in the last few thousand years, this was enough to make everyone crazy and the empires that had them crazy!
The Karan Empire was lucky to have one summoner and this summoner was born in the small Yun family! Since then, the Yun family rose to success overnight and became the most respected family in the Karan Empire, a family that everyone could only look up to! Just because of that summoner!
The Emperor gave the Yun family countless wealth and fame. Even members of the royal family had to bow to the Yun family. All the glory came from that summoner and the Yun family also became the hope of the Karan Empire. With the appearance of the first summoner, there might be a second one!
If the Yun family could have a summoner every generation, even just one, then the Karan Empire would be the first in power among the four empires and would be the strongest!
And yet, the hope gradually faded as time passed. The summoner born in the Yun family had already died and there weren't any summoners again in the Yun family in the next few centuries. They were just like any other normal families, even having pitifully few mages.
Eventually, the royal family also became less passionate about the Yun family. The Yun family even moved back to Chunfeng Town from the Imperial Capital. As time went, the Yun family, which used to be glorious and admired by thousands of people, had already faded out of people's sight. Only that legendary summoner was left deep in their memory.
The Yun family came back to this small town with the huge amount of money they saved. Originally, the other families were still in awe of the Yun family's glory, but in the last century, the Yun family completely declined. Not only did they have very few members, but even the most ordinary warriors had just average achievements. People's gazes of reverence and respect slowly ceased and they were ridiculed and taunted instead. Without powerful strength, all the glory was just empty talk. Although the Yun family had had a summoner once, it was just a flash in the pan, not to mention it had been a few centuries ago.
With such a huge amount of family property, it was difficult for them to stay away from prying eyes and those snobbish families preyed on the Yun family's assets! Their tactics became more vicious and even intensified to hurting the direct bloodline of the Yun family in the end!
The Yun family had declined, but the pride and dignity in the bones of the members of the Yun family had existed for a thousand years. The glorious past of the family made every member proud and becoming a summoner was the dream every generation of the Yun family went after their entire life!
"Summoner… The Yun family…" Yun Feng lay in bed and mumbled. There were glitters flashing deep in her black eyes and she finally raised the corners of her lips slowly. Weak mental strength? Destined not to be able to go far on the road of mental strength? Then, this theory was destined to end here. She was captured by the research institute because of her terrifying brain wave ability in her previous life and brain waves should be the so-called mental strength in this world.
