Blacksmith of the Apocalypse

Chapter 514: Elemental's New Body

, it was a simple notion.

Make something with a strong connection or semantic similarity to something that should already be in the underworld, or shares a myth or connection with Hades and hope for the best. It was different this time.

The eagle of Prometheus, that would regularly come to eat the titans liver. In some accounts, the eagle was an automaton created by the god of blacksmiths and it would later be slain by Herakles. This meant it was his connection with Hephaestus, or technically both of the Olympian Gods that had come into play this time.

His choice back then in the treasury, to bring the elemental with him had really paid off. He did not just get good info on his skills and was able to aim for the golem forge. He also had a new companion comparable to Python.

Watching the bird happily fly just below the ceiling of his workshop, he finally managed to gather his thoughts. A wave of relief and happiness flooded over him. Those hours and hours of vexing detail work had really paid off. But he couldnt look uncool now. Hiding his own euphoria behind a smug smile

“I-I guess this means you like your new body?” he asked confidently.

“Yes, I do! You cant imagine how it feels to finally have a true body without fear of crumbling away and losing oneself at any moment of time.” it cawed in happy relief.

“Whoah,” he thought. Seth reeled for a moment. Didnt the elemental just say something really dark in a way too happy voice? He cleared his throat to get some time to find his composure again. This was not how the elemental had described it before.

Now the blacksmith couldnt but feel a little pity for it. He had no idea how the elemental had behaved for Forgebrand to fight it and show it such cruel “mercy”. But he was sure the last millennia as a spear must have done a number on Ceres.

“See, I told you I can give you a fitting body. Im really glad you like it.” while he was still trying to brag in the first part, he really meant it when he said that he was glad. This was not just about the fact that he got another powerful ally, but that the ally was truly happy about its new lease on life.

He would never say it out loud, but this was the best part about this ability. He still remembered the reaction of the Faer, the people that had begged him on the battlefield to save them. Their reaction when they moved their fingers and touched their faces for the first time.

It was a gratification that made Seth understand why there were people out there that would help others without expecting a gain or something in return. It didnt mean that he had any interest in becoming one of them, but it was always the best when he was able to help and gain something.

“Now, what should I do?” Ceres suddenly asked.

He didnt notice when, but the bird had landed on the table in front of him. This was a problem. The same he had with Asterion. Seth had not actually planned a specific task for them. Unlike Python, which was a golem with an ego, the Minotaur counted as a living being and couldnt be put in his inventory.

As for Ceres, Seth didnt know whether it was possible or if he even wanted to store the happy bird in his inventory.

“How about you go out and enjoy your new…corporeal existence or something? I will contact you if I have something for you.” Seth suggested.

He thought of bringing Ceres along on his quest, but he wanted to give it some freedom for now. After all, he had roughly 200 golems to make and almost as many rings to finish before he could think of starting the journey.

The bird nodded and Seth watched it shoot off into the hallway.
