Chapter 929: Powerful Shapes.h.i.+fter
Gradier Xanatus's eyes widened as he heard this.
"It would see right through your disguise," He said with a tone of realisation.
While Shape-s.h.i.+fting bloodlines were extremely rare there had been well-known shapes.h.i.+fters in the past.
Centuries ago they would disguise themselves as anyone and get away with crimes and even blame innocents. This used to be a headache to the authorities and they found it really hard to apprehend criminals with bloodlines related to shape-s.h.i.+fting.
This was until they found a way to unveil shapes.h.i.+fters with a new piece of technology. Said technological generator had these Glatarid components within.
Some CCTVs still had these which was why Gustav would always be careful in some areas even when making use of shape-s.h.i.+fting to change his ident.i.ty.
This glatarid would uncover anyone who used shape-s.h.i.+fting to try and take Yung Jo's ident.i.ty.
"What do we do?" Gustav wondered out loud as he held his chin.
'Stop Yung Jo before he gets to use this?' Gustav thought internally.
"Bring me up to speed on everything that is going on, I need to understand what we're dealing with to help better," Gradier Xanatus voiced out as he saw Gustav's worried look.
"There's no time," Gustav stated as he walked about.
("Do it,") The system suddenly voiced in his mind.
'Do what?' Gustav questioned.
("Use your shape-s.h.i.+fting,") The system stated.
'Did you even hear anything we just said?' Gustav asked with an irritated tone internally.
("Do it dumba.s.s, you're underestimating the power of your shape-s.h.i.+fting. Do you think it's the same with those rip-off shapes.h.i.+fters?") The system insulted Gustav internally.
'What are you talking about? A CCTV with glatarid has uncovered my real look before when I made use of shape-s.h.i.+fting back then. Did you forget how much ha.s.sle I had to go through to get rid of it?' Gustav said internally, reminding the system.
("Now and then are not the same dumb a.s.s. Just do it,") The system insisted.
'Uh? Okay then,' Gustav knew the system was probably onto something since it kept insisting.
He was still skeptical about this but he decided to just go through with it.
Gustav turned around and squatted in front of the large generator-sized device.
Flesh wriggling sounds began to ring out, causing Gradier Xanatus to stare in his direction.
"What are you doing?" Gradier Xanatus asked.
Gustav turned to face him looking exactly like Yung Jo.
He didn't need to say a word, his look was already self-explanatory.
"It has glatarid, you'll just be exposing us," Gradier Xanatus stated with a look of disagreement.
"Trust me," Gustav said before turning to face the device again.
Although he said that, even he did not trust himself.
Gradier Xanatus let out a worried sigh as he stood and watched.
The device shot out red strings of light towards Gustav's face, a.n.a.lysing it. He made sure to use Yung Jo's usual expression which was a mix of coldness and cunningness with his slanted eyes.
Scan complete! Deactivating Bloodline Disruptor!
Gustav heaved a sigh of relief after seeing the device shutting down.
"It worked," He said with a smile while standing to his feet.
"How?" Gradier Xanatus voiced with a surprised look.
Gustav just shrugged his shoulders as he was also unaware that he could bypa.s.s the glatarid.
Gradier Xanatus was astounded as he realized nothing was capable of uncovering Gustav's shape-s.h.i.+fting at this point which made him a very dangerous existence.
("Told you dumba.s.s,") The system voiced in his mind.
'But how?' Gustav was still surprised.
("You're now way more powerful than you were before. Besides your original bloodline is... Never mind about that. Just know you're stronger so it's normal,") The system stated.
'...Hmm, I see, alright work done. Time to head back,' Gustav said internally as raised his fist and brought it down upon the device.
It blasted into smithereens after his fist made contact. Gustav proceeded to pack the parts together and placed them in his storage device.
"That's its Gradier Xanatus, thanks for your help," He voiced with a tone of grat.i.tude.
"No problem, it sounds like something serious is going on," Gradier Xanatus responded.
"You just helped in saving the fate of the world but I will explain everything once I'm done. We're not completely out of the woods yet," Gustav said and proceeded to head to the elevator area.
Gradier Xanatus followed after him and they chatted a little as they headed down.
Daytime arrived in a flash and at this time Gustav was back in Scientist Merkil's apartment. He had been waiting for hours so scientist Merkil could wake up since he got knocked out after the whole Siphoning process the last day.
Gustav wasn't as worried as before because he had successfully deactivated the device that would have caused the earth to be in a perilous state had Yung Jo been successful.
However, he still wanted to make sure there were no loose ends so he wanted to siphon more of Scientist Merkil's memories before heading to the secret base where the other scientists under Yung Jo were working.
Gustav was still waiting at this point and it was almost noon. He was thinking of heading over to the secret base right now and just forgetting about the Siphoning.
However, after a few more minutes Scientist Merkil awoke.
His eyes looked all droppy as he opened them and found himself laying on his carpet.
Turning to his left he could see Gustav seating on the sofa staring straight at him with a gaze that seemed like it was piercing straight through his soul.
"You... b.a.s.t.a.r.d... what did you do to me?" Scientist Merkil asked weakly.
"I am not done, thank you for regaining consciousness," Gustav said as an evil grin appeared on his face.
"You... stay away... stay away..." Scientist Merkil tried to crawl away as he voiced out loudly.
"I'm sorry no one can hear your screams... didn't the money you used in acquiring such an expensive soundproof apartment like this come from Yung Jo, the c.u.n.t who destroys the lives of others," Gustav said as he walked towards Scientist Merkil.
