Chapter 1406: Path of a Hero
“When Emperor Yao ascended to the throne, the entire country rose up in rebellion.
The ten suns appearing at the same time formed one component of that.
Apart from that, several demons such as the Yayu, Zaochi Giant, Nine Infants, Grandgale, Fenxi Boar, and Xiushe Serpent all appeared…” The voice seemed to be immersed in its memories, talking about the events of the past.
Zu An was shocked.
Grandgale He had a Grandgale among his skills.
He wondered whether his Grandgale had anything to do with that Grandgale.
“Additionally, the famous Four Perils also emerged from that period.
The Qiongqi, Hundun, Taowu, and Taotie all appeared when Yao took the throne,” the voice continued.
Yan Xuehen, Yun Jianyue, and Yu Yanluo instinctively looked at Zu An.
They remembered that he had called the monster they encountered back on Feather Mountain a Taowu.
Could that be the same thing
“The Taowu youre speaking of, does it look like a tiger with extremely long hair, the fangs of a wild boar, and a tail a dozen meters long…” Zu An gave a rough description of the monster.
“Thats right,” the voice said with a sigh.
“I sensed its aura not too long ago.
It sounds as if you released it.”
Zu Ans group was stunned, replying, “We didnt do anything.
It suddenly appeared.”
“Did you encounter a giant stone that resembled a tortoise” the voice asked.
There were many bones inside.
They seemed to be the skeletal remains of some giant creature,” Zu An said with a nod.
“Then it all makes sense.
That was the seal used to suppress the Taowu.
If you could destroy that seal, your cultivations are higher than I imagined,” the voice said, sounding a bit surprised; it seemed to be reevaluating them.
Zu An had a strange expression as he replied, “We werent the ones who broke that seal.
It was someone who entered with us.” After some hesitation, he added, “That other person is a Golden Crow, but I dont know if he has anything to do with the Golden Crows you mentioned before.”
“The Puppet Curse on you came from him, right” the voice said before continuing, “Then it must be.
Thats a unique skill of the Golden Crow lineage.
No one else can mimic it.”
Zu An and the others exchanged a look.
They hadnt expected the Fiend Emperors history to actually be related to an Unknown Region.
Why did all of this feel a bit unreal
“By the way, would releasing the Taowu, one of the Four Perils, mean weve unleashed a disaster upon the world” Zu An quickly asked.
That was how movies often portrayed it.
“Just a single Taowu wouldnt be that powerful,” the voice said, sounding quite relaxed.
“Judging from what you just said, it sounds as if releasing more will cause problems, right” Yun Jianyue asked.
“That would indeed be troublesome,” the voice said.
It didnt seem to want to go into detail.
It changed the topic and asked, “Do you know why theyre called the Four Perils”
“I dont,” Zu An replied.
He thought back to the Taotie he had encountered in the Yinxu secret dungeon, wondering whether it was also one of the Four Perils the voice had spoken of.
“The Yayu, Zaochi Giant, Nine Infants, and so on that I mentioned are powerful demons in their own right.
However, the Four Perils werent beasts to begin with, but rather humans,” the voice said with a sigh.
“Human” Zu Ans group exclaimed.
Now, they were truly shocked.
They thought of the Taowus malevolent appearance.
How could that have anything to do with a human
The Hundun used to be called Huan Dou, a son of Zhuan Xu.
The Qiongqi was Gong Gong, the descendant of the Flame Emperor.
The Taotie was named Chi You when he was still alive, and Chi You was also from the Flame Emperors lineage.
The Taowus name was Gun, another one of Zhuan Xus descendants.
Those individuals were all opposed to Yao, but after many years of battle, they were all defeated.
Yao exiled Gong Gong to You Province, Huan Dou to Mount Chong, and San Miaos Chi You to San Wei.
Meanwhile, Gun was put to death on Feather Mountain.
When those people died, their resentment and dissatisfaction turned them into the Four Perils,” the voice explained.
Yan Xuehen, Yun Jianyue, and Yu Yanluo were all stunned.
Those names were too unfamiliar to them.
It was as if they were listening to an imperial edict.
Zu An was actually incredibly shocked.
Many things he had just heard seemed to completely contradict common knowledge! He hadnt expected Gong Gong and Chi You to actually be under the Flame Emperors lineage!
The people of China in his previous world were referred to as descendants of the Flame Emperor and Yellow Emperor.
In ancient times, the Flame Emperor and Yellow Emperors largest tribes had merged together and continued to propagate, ultimately forming the ancient Chinese civilization.
He couldnt help but ask, “The Gong Gong youre speaking of, is he the one whose anger on Buzhou Mountain caused the heavens to collapse, releasing the great flood on the world That Gong Gong And Chi You… Is that the Demon Lord Chi You, who fought a great battle against the emperor”
Huan Dou and Gun were one thing, because they werent that famous in history.
Gun was the antagonist in Yu the Greats story of taming the floods, so he was a bit more memorable.
Compared to Gong Gong and Chi You, however, he wasnt anyone special at all.
Gog Gong had made the heavens split open and drowned the entire world in a great flood, forcing the great Goddess Nuwa to appear and repair the heavens.
Chi You had fought a great battle against the Yellow Emperor, forcing even someone of his stature into a desperate situation several times.
He was a vicious individual who had only been taken down in the end by the Yellow Emperor with assistance.
There were many movies, shows, and web novels that made him out to be one of the greatest antagonists in history.
“Hm You seem to know quite a bit about the events of our age,” the voice said, sounding a bit surprised.
He explained, “The Gong Gong youre talking about isnt the same one as the one Im talking about.
Gong Gong was a title, and every single generation had a new Gong Gong.
The one who expressed his fury on Buzhou Mountain was the first-generation Gong Gong.
The cause of that event was his defeat in a competition over the throne against the Black Emperor, Zhuan Xu.”
The three women found that easier to understand.
Just like the Fiend Emperor, even though every single generations leader was called the Fiend Emperor, they were actually completely different.
The voice continued, “The Gong Gong Im talking about is the one from Emperor Yaos reign.
In the battle between the Flame and Yellow Emperors, the Flame Emperor was defeated.
However, his bloodlines faction was still strong, which was why they were never willing to bow down to the Yellow Emperor.
That was why they fought several battles against the Yellow Emperors side.
“The most famous were the Battle of Banquan between the Flame and Yellow Emperors, the Battle of Zhuolu between the Yellow Emperor and Chi You, and the battle between the Black Emperor and Zhuan Xu.
“As for the Gong Gong of Emperor Yaos time, he was a later-generation Gong Gong.
That Chi You wasnt the first Chi You either, but rather the title of the tribe leader of San Miao.”
“So that was what happened,” Zu An said.
He was curious as to who those people were, as the voice knew about those events so well, almost as if he had been there.
“Back then, the entire world was in chaos.
Yao was also hard-pressed, but he was quite capable and good at appointing people, so he raised a large group of capable generals.
He sent Yi to kill the Zaochi Giant in the Field of Splendor, the Nine Infants above the fearful waters, Grandgale in Bluemound Pond, and nine of the ten suns.
Yi also killed the Yayu, then the Xiushe in Dongting, and lastly the Fengxi Boar in the Mulberry Forest.”
Zu An was shocked.
This Yi really was quite an outstanding individual.
He had been able to conquer Change in the arts, while his martial might could slay demons.
The voice continued, “The reason Im telling you all this in such detail is because I need you to repeat Yis heroic path.
Only then can you obtain the acknowledgment of his divine weapon and have a hope of defeating that powerful being.”
