Chapter 146 - Bloodline Conversations
"I heard them saying you're only F-grade... it doesn't matter to me if you are, but I've never seen an F-grade as strong as you are... Please tell me about your bloodline," Angy added with a pleading look.
Gustav stared at Angy's eyes for a few seconds with a contemplative look before turning his face away.
"Why do you still believe that I appeared as Falco?" Gustav asked while folding his arms.
Angy moved her body closer to Gustav and grabbed his left arm.
Gustav was intrigued by her action but she wasn't done.
"I never told anyone but... I have a crazy sense of smell," Angy said before raising Gustav's arm and placing it close to her face.
She sniffed twice before she continued speaking.
"So long as anyone has moved as close as two feet to me, their scent is one that I won't be able to forget for a long time... You have the same scent as the person who carried me out of the battle ring... you can't tell me, that's a coincidence," Angy stated white with an assured expression.
Gustav stared at her with a disbelieving expression, 'Is she an animal or something? How come I didn't notice that she was sensitive to smell and also able to master another person's scent?'
He had a thousand ways of telling her off but no matter what explanation he gave at the moment she would keep suspecting him because of the scent.
'The shapeshifting doesn't include body scent?' Gustav held his chin as he wondered.
'This might be a problem since someone with an ability similar to that might uncover me in the future... It's good that Angy is the one who figured it out this time, if it was another person, it would be a problem,' Gustav took note of this so he wouldn't be caught unawares in the future.
He decided he would check out more flaws that the shapeshifting ability had later.
'I guess this must be because of the levels, maybe when I max out the levels in the future, shapeshifting will become almost flawless,' Gustav's thoughts ran deep due to this blunder and he had nearly forgotten Angy was still waiting for an answer.
"Please tell me does your bloodline have to do with transformation?" Angy's voice brought him back to reality.
Gustav wasn't surprised by her deduction this time. Anybody with a brain would be able to tell that his bloodline had to do with transformation once they figured out that he was pretending to be Falco the other time.
'Well, it doesn't seem like there will be any harm in telling her about my original bloodline,' Gustav said internally as he came to a decision.
Angy was still staring at him when she noticed his skin changing color.
It went from being white to being dark, then from dark to pale white and some other different colors.
Angy was had her mouth wide open in shock.
"Initially I could only change my hair color," Gustav started speaking while his hair turned into different colors.
"But now my bloodline has improved after reaching the zulu rank so now I can do this," Gustav's body slowly transformed into a copy of Angy's.
Angy eyes widened even more.
"It's like staring in a mirror," She muttered subconsciously while staring at the horns on his forehead.
She couldn't find any difference between her looks and his current appearance except for the clothes that Gustav was wearing.
Gustav slowly transformed back into his original self and both of them stared at each other for several seconds.
"I've never seen someone with such a unique bloodline ability," Angy said with a look of astonishment.
"You can become anyone, you can infiltrate anywhere without anyone realizing," Angy added.
"Well you didn't get fooled and they're places that have advanced security that will immediately expose my disguise so it's not flawless," Gustav stated.
"True but it's still very fascinating," Angy said with a smile.
'But that doesn't explain his insane strength and how he's able to receive my attacks without taking damage,' Angy said internally while staring at Gustav.
"Are you truly F-grade?" Angy asked with a look of disbelief.
"Well, that was the result of the bloodline exams I had when I was six years old," Gustav replied while shrugging his shoulders.
'How can that be F-grade?' Angy still doubted that Gustav was F-grade.
"Are both your birth parents mixed-bloods?" Angy asked with a look of curiosity.
"Yes, they're mixed-bloods too," Gustav answered with a glance. He wondered where Angy was driving with this.
"What about your grandparents?" She asked once again.
"I never met them but I remember my birth parents spoke of them in my childhood days... Yes, they were also mixed-bloods," Gustav answered once again.
"Did you ever do a reexamination?" Angy asked.
"No, I've never done a reexamination since there's no point to it... Bloodline grades don't ever change unless you have enough money and connections to access the BED," Gustav replied with a dismissive look.
"You should do a reexamination," Angy advised.
"Why?" Gustav asked.
"You know about the theory where the combination of two mixed-bloods creates offsprings with special bloodlines?" Angy asked.
"Yes, I've heard of that but isn't my F-grade bloodline proof that this theory isn't always right," Gustav stated with a contemplative look.
"Hmm, true but remember my parents are scientists... They have gotten cases where mixed-bloods who have parents and grandparents who are also mixed-bloods, had their grade increased due to late-blooming or something like that... There was a term they called it... I can't remember," Angy had eyebrows furrowed while speaking.
"Either way what I'm trying to say is... Although it's only a 0.0003% chance, there is a possibility that a mixed-blood with parents and grandparents of mixed-blood's origins might have their grade increased later when they reach an older age," Angy stated.
Gustav never knew that such a thing was actually possible in the first place.
After hearing what Angy said he thought, 'If this is true there's a chance that I might be able to use this to my advantage in the future,'
