Fortunately, right after a century, they had succeeded. They had successfully failed. Their success didn't bring any joy nor any happiness.

Gene Devouring

The elder had now retracted his energy and smiled a little bit when he saw him bowing. With a wave of his hand the bird floated into the ship and went somewhere he didn't know. He felt that if he could absorb the enrgy within the bird he could make a breakthrough once again but he had already achieved one and being greedy would cloud his thinking.

So he wiped the thought out of his mind before going back to the carcass. The superiours had arrived and made the announcement of the mission ending. He couldn't see the thunder elder within the superiours so he got back to the Mission Hall to get the rewards of the mission. There he saw that he had killed fifty one birds. Fifty low leveled birds and one advanced first grade bird.

Fifty low leveled birds were equal to 1,500 points and the one advanced was 400 points. The participation was a hundred points. He couldn't believe it, now he was like a rich man with 2,000 points.

If he could get something like this then others would also get something like this. That meant all the surviving people could get a rare gene for themself.

He was wrong after all, maybe first-tier rare genes were common and giving them to talented people like them was profitable after all.

They had the potential to become powerful and also repay the favor if thinking like this losing a precious first-grade rare gene was manageable. A first grade may not even be precious to them at all.

Anyways since he was rich he had nothing to worry. Now he could be said to be at the top because of the multiple breakthroughs, even Farold can't stop him. But he preferred to be low profile, others knew nothing about the capsule.

Nobody paid attention to him earlier and didn't dare gaze at him all of them were busy trying to heal themselves, plus a fog was surrounding him earlier as he protected himself from the elder's aura earlier.

When his energy had become depleted and the fog was also becoming illusionary the capsule was in front of him and thunder had covered him them. Like this nobody saw him having a breakthrough though they were suspicious.

He got his payment then bought the space compressor, it was a device that could compress something and have it stored in a smaller space.

It was useful and he needed it to get the carcass of the advanced bird. He got the compressor suitable and went to the carcass and stored it within it.

Garen was guarding the carcass and he carried since it was all bones, though it was heavy it wasn't too much heavy.

When he arrived he divided the 400 hundred points of the advanced bird with the three of them. Garen got the least as he was the weakest and also contributed the smallest. He and Fanton both had a hundred and fifty points for themself.

The bones for the bird was a hundred point and since nobody wanted the gene it was also exchanged for three hundred points due to it being a healing type with unusual properties.

In the end, his total points were 1,730 as the space compressor cost him two hundred points.

He liked the first gene he exchanged as it could be used in different situations, it helped a lot in the fight with the big bird. Now he was thinking about getting the same type of it.

A defensive type gene exactly like the metal gene. Right now he needed to repay Fanton. Even though they divided the reward equally Fanton could also get an exact amount of it by killing the mobs. So fighting with the bird was all for a favor if not he would've probably escaped.

But Fanton said that he would need the favor later so they bid farewells as Cylius saw the choices of his gene. Rare grade genes appeared all over the screen, truly not precious.

He had lots of choices but he didn't choose on absorbing any foreign gene. He had the limit of three genes for his body and so he was thinking about upgrading his current gene by the devouring.

People mostly use the option to devour when they're upgrading the genes. Devouring was a difficult but simple way. It would be to find a higher grade gene of the same type and make the upgrading gene consume it.

It was hard to do as a lower grade gene absorbing a higher grade was almost impossible, that's why scientists made a gene solution specifically for it.

The solution could strengthen genes of all types temporarily. With this method, it would make the process of devouring much easier. But the side effects would be the weakening of the gene for a period of time.

At this time the person can't use the gene or else it would collapse and the host will get severely injured if not dead.

This gene solution could also be used as a form of boost but instead of it being temporarily unavailable it would be a full collapse.

The theory of it was there are specific gene solutions for all grades and if the gene isn't strengthened within time and advance the side effects would be too harsh for the gene resulting in a collapse.

So only by making the gene advance would the gene be able to resist the side effects.

After looking for a while he found one and it was almost the same except the density and hardness it could offer to the host. He bought one with the gene solution for devouring too.

And since he was rich he also bought the gaming tablet, the precious one.

Thankfully no one else on the ship was interested in a gaming tablet this expensive, even if there were, they were likely to not have the money and even if they had the money they weren't fast enough.

Looking for the guns once again he felt that since he had achieved a breakthrough he felt that the power of the gun wasn't suitable for him. Looking for a powerful gun was easy and he quickly found one, it also had a surprise.

Apparently it supports force energy bullets, meaning that with it one could make his or her energy mixed in the bullet more easily. With it, he could really add his energy into the bullets. It was expensive but he had the money.

'Good things really come in with money' as long as he had money he would be able to achieve several breakthroughs. Money really decides one's fate.
