The Mage Association.
The pot-bellied Mediterranean was sitting comfortably on a leather chair, smoking a cigar.
Then, there was a knock on the door.
The sexy female secretary brought a document over and handed it to the Mediterranean.
"Mr. Casey, the investigation team has sent over a document. Please, have a look."
The Mediterranean named Casey reached out with his left hand to take the document, his right hand not forgetting to pinch the secretary's buttocks.
Judging from the female secretary's unperturbed reaction, this was probably a common occurrence.
After tearing open the sealed envelope, Casey Cedria muttered disdainfully, "Are these swindlers still insisting on submitting the report in such an old-fashioned way?
"What a bunch of country bumpkins!"
In an attempt to curry favor, the female secretary said promptly, "That's right. Sooner or later, these people will be abandoned by the times. I don't know why the higher-ups value them so much."
Sealing envelopes with lacquer was a common method of information transmission for mages.
This kind of lacquer contained a special magic. If someone other than the intended recipient opened the envelope, the words in the letter would immediately disappear.
However, in Casey's eyes, this was a very old-fashioned behavior.
What era were they living in now?
The digital era!
As a noble leader, he believed that 'people who work hard' should follow their own norms and use email.
Although he didn't understand magic at all, he was a government official. Hence, he was able to sit in this position.
At the same time, because of his experience in the government sector, he understood the importance of superficial work.
Therefore, although he was dissatisfied, he still opened the envelope.
After all, it was his job to check the reports of his subordinates and give an answer.
However, the moment he took a look, Casey frowned in dissatisfaction. The flesh on his fat face was almost squished together.
"Don't they know what respect is?
"They should refer to me as 'the beloved Lord Casey Cedria'!" Casey muttered in dissatisfaction. Then, he casually glanced at the contents of the letter at a speed of ten lines per glance.
"Strangeness of a new birth? They need to pay attention to that? What a joke!
"These guys will never understand the difficulties of our leader.
"How can they spend so much resources just for the strangeness of a new birth?
"The only thing these pedantic worms know how to do is ask us for this and that!
"Do they think I don't know anything about the occult? Strange new births are very weak!"
With a face full of disdain, Casey wrote his reply on the envelope as if he was taking revenge.
He didn't even include a reason.
As the honorable high-ranking member of the Mage Association, Lord Casey Cedria, was he required to give a reason to these 'people who work for him'?
Casey casually stuffed the letter back into the envelope and handed it to the secretary.
The secretary asked carefully, "Does this letter need to be sent back the same way?"
Casey waved his hand and sneered, "No need. Just leave it at the headquarters. They'll see it when they return.
"You must know that postage is very expensive!
"We can't waste the country's money on such a trivial matter."
After saying that, Casey put out the cigar in his hand before taking out another cigar from the beautifully decorated cigar box.
Six hours later, the Commissioner who was waiting for news at Nord branch received a call.
"Doesn't that bastard Casey know how serious this matter is?
"Lei hasn't returned yet?
"Alright, I got it."
The female commissioner beside him frowned and asked, "Is that damn fatty making things difficult for us again?"
The male commissioner nodded. His face was dark.
This was not the first time such a thing has happened.
As long as Lei was not around, Casey would make things difficult for their investigation team without any bottom line.
However, there was nothing they could do about it.
Other than Lei, no one dared to go against Casey.
"Lucius, what should we do now?" the female commissioner asked with a worried expression.
She and Lucius were not the kinds who were good at fighting. If they did not have the support, they might not be able to deal with this strange scarecrow.
Moreover, the strange scarecrow even seemed to have the ability to create illusions.
This increased the difficulty of the mission to a whole other level.
Lucius gave her a bitter smile and patted her shoulder.
"Don't worry, Teach. My brother says he'll handle it."
Teach was slightly surprised when he heard that. She looked around. After confirming that there was no one around, she lowered her voice and said, "Is Lucas crazy? He'll be punished if he increases the number of personnel without permission!"
When he heard Teach's words, the wry smile on Lucius's face became even wider.
"Yeah, that's why he told us not to participate in this matter."
"This..." Teach was momentarily speechless.
Indeed. If Lucius and Teach did not participate in this matter, it would not be considered as an increase in personnel.
Moreover, Lucas and his brother were on the same level.
Doing so was still completely in line with the rules.
However, Teach was still a little worried.
"Will Lucas be alone? He won't be able to deal with the illusion..."
At this moment, Lucius's expression softened a little. He smiled and said, "Why would I let Lucas go alone?
"Don't worry, Kai's with him."
Upon hearing his name, Teach's expression instantly became much calmer.
If Kai was tagging along, this mission would be foolproof.
After all, he was Kai.
In an abandoned farm in the suburbs.
Flanders was hiding in his house, looking at the skill learning interface.
He had harvested a lot in that small village, bringing Flanders a huge profit.
More than 10,000 fear points!
What was the concept of more than 10,000 fear points?
It only required 100 fear points to learn each of the level 1 skills.
On the other hand, 1,000 fear points were required to learn the level 2 skills.
After all three skills were upgraded to level 2, a new skill was unlocked in the skill learning interface.
[Five Bone: requires 500 fear points.]
After learning this skill, it can be used against surrounding enemies to constantly absorb their stamina.
[Crow Storm: requires 500 fear points.]
After learning this skill, he would have the ability to conjure crows from his body that would continuously attack the enemies around him.
[Disguise: requires 500 fear points.]
After learning this skill, his ability to disguise himself would increase, greatly reducing the vigilance of the people around him. Scaring enemies while in disguise would obtain him even more fear points.
Without any hesitation, Flanders immediately learned the three skills.
However, after seeing the requirements to upgrade these skills, Flanders frowned slightly.
To upgrade these three skills to level 2, it would require 3,000 fear points!
