The Magi World is a High World, meaning that his laws are extremely completed and the amount of natural energy it generates is immense. It can be considered one of the principal world of the multiverse, with the existence of Magis know to everybody as cruel and warmonger beings that are the dooms of most medium and low worlds and planes.
The more complete a World is, the ease it his to produce strong life forms that not only protects it against invaders but also attack other world and planes.
The Magi World is incredibly huge, with hundreds of continent and the Magi are the dominant force of this world. There exist hundreds of organizations in the world but there are 3 that are the most powerful ones and divide the continents between themself.
One of these 3 is the Aeternum Empire, an organization made of hundreds of Magi clans of all sizes that occupies the center of the Magic World.
The Zanabi Tower that Zatiel was previously a part of was own by the Zanabi family, a small clan part of the Aeternum Empire that was positioned at the periphery of this one.
When Zatiel left the Grey Swamp, he didn't for a second thought of going back, if he were to do that, being questioned for the Magis that run the tower was a certainty after all it has been less than 3 months since he departed the tower as a rank 1 apprentice magi and now he was as strong as a rank 3 apprentice, they may even just extract his memories and dissect his body to found out how he did it. As for the consequences, nobody will question a rank 1 Magi if he kills an apprentice not matter how strong he is.
Luckily he doesn't need to worry about being searched for, those apprentices that brought him to the swamp and throw him to die will invent a story and say he died due to some magical creature and covert their tracks.
So the destination Zatiel was going was the Sinux Magic Tower that was controlled directly by the Aeternum Empire, this magic tower was a strategic point because it was close to the entrance to the Underground Zone but also was bordering the Endless Forest. This last one was an uncivilized zone that was full of magical creatures, a few of them equally powerful as some of the strongest Magi that you could find in the Magi World.
Although it was dangerous, it was also a place full of opportunities and those that were powerful enough could obtain great wealth, so a lot of unaffiliated Magi and apprentices go to that zone, as for if they could survive or not it depend in their ability and luck.
According to the information Zatiel has, the Grey Swamp was around 10 thousand kilometers from the Sinux Magic Tower, luckily for them, most of the path was through some human kingdoms and danger zones that did not generate a threat to them.
They run during the day and improve their efficiency in their agility spells, and in the night they rested and if they were close to a place with magical creatures, they kill it and eat them to improve their strength.
The cultivation of the Chaotic Core can be done in several ways, the most common one will be attracting the natural energies of the world to the body and letting the core absorb them improving himself and the amount of abyss aura in the body. Another way is eating something with a high concentration of energy like magical creatures, so hunting serves to improve their battle skills and overall power.
Zatiel let Ezequiel take care of the magical creature to let the boy familiarize himself with magical fight and battling powerful creatures. Of course, Zatiel was always ready to intervene if something were to happen.
Righ now Ezequiel was fighting a Metalic-Bear, that was a bear-like magical creature with hair that looks like metal, although the beast was stronger than Ezequiel the moment the boy activates Lightning Armor the fight was decided.
Ezequiel weapon was a double-edged dagger that he picked in the bandit camp, he chose it because it was perfect for his battle style. From time to time you could see how the weapon was cover with lightning enhancing the damage that generates in the creature
´Impressive, his proficiency in the spell reached the level that allows him to cover other objects surpassing the original limitation of only covering his body. Lightning is suitable for him.´ Zatiel though as he looked at the boy fight.
During the fight, Ezequiel only attacked when the time was right and he could damage the vital organs of the beast, demonstrating his training as an assassin.
As the fight was ending Ezequiel's lightning was starting to vanish so he hurries up and takes the opportunity the beast was hurt to make an opening and attack in the back of the head and burying the dagger all the way to the handle killing the creature.
"Well done little EZ but you have to remember to always have control over the amount of abyss aura you have left and never let it deplete entirely, because if you do that you will be too weak to react to an unexpected situation," Zariel says as he judged the boy's battle power.
´With his abilities, fighting rank 3 apprentices should be ease, and if take them by surprise he could even kill a pseudo-Magi, not bad´.
Ezequiel nodded and start to reflect over the fight trying to see what can be improved from his fighting style.
Zatiel and Ezequiel continue their journey, constantly training their spells and killing magical creatures to either eat them or harvest their organs.
After a little more than 3 months, Zatiel and Ezequiel arrived at the area controlled by the Sinux Magic Tower, both of them carrying huge bags made of animal skin full with parts of magical creatures.
As they got closer more and more buildings began to appear in their surroundings, you could see inns and weapon shops and even some brothels in their surroundings.
When they were about to enter the city a wave of energy goes through their bodies scanning them, to disappear just a second later.
Although most of the apprentices that enter the city won't be able to know what happens, it could not scape Zatiel detection.
´A spell that detects the power of the individuals, the moment it saw that our strength was inferior to a rank 1 Magi it retreated immediately. It's understandable after all even the strongest rank 3 apprentice pose no threat to the magic tower´.
Of course, Zatiel never worried about his abyss aura or Chaotic Core been revealed.
His abyss aura was created from his Chaotic Core using spirit force as a base so everyone will just fell this last one when they detect his energy, and as for the core, it was designed so no external force could detect it, so unless someone incredible stronger than him were to scan him, find it out was almost impossible.
As they go deeper into the city they started to see a mind-blowing 300-meter tall tower, Its exterior was made of obsidian metal and you could see inscriptions surrounding the tower that emitted a mystic glow from time to time. The tower emetic a majestic pressure that makes most people not dare to look at it directly.
It was the first time that Ezequiel saw something so impressive, and thanks to his high affinity he could feel the immense amount of energy that was concentrated in the tower.
Zatiel saw the look in the boy's face but say nothing after all even he was impressed, of course, what impressed him was not the size of the tower or the amount of energy this one has but the runes that were inscribed in his surface.
´Whoever inscribed those runes certainly has a high level of proficiency in them, they are strong enough to augment the strength of whoever controls the tower to defeat someone a rank above them´. Zatiel thought as he continues to walk.
They headed directly to the tower to speak with whoever manages it, and decide their next step.
As they got closer and closer to the city the number of apprentices grow exponentially, and by the time they arrive at the tower the sigh of rank 3 apprentices was pretty common.
As Zatiel and Ezequiel get closer to the tower more and more apprentices started to take attention to them, after all, two new people with a concentration of energy in their body corresponding to rank 3 apprentices and with a bag full of precious part of magical creatures are something you don't see every day.
Although you could see greed in the eyes of most apprentices, none of them acted, it was like if they were waiting for something.
I didn't take long an apprentice to interrupt their path, he was a man of 2 and a half meter with a brawny figure an according to the energy he generates he was a rank 3 apprentice that follow the path of body refinement.
In his square face, you could see a vicious smile as he comes closer to Zatiel.
"Stop there little brats, you are new so I will do you a favor and explain how things are done here, I am Nick and am in charge of revising any type of material that comes to the tower. Now give me the bags so I can assess if there is anything wrong with what you have. If you resist I will be forced to consider that you are hiding something and will have to take them by force."
This was a fragrant robbery in broad daylight, but none of the other apprentices say nothing, like if this was completely normal thing to happen.
"The newcomer got bad luck"
"Hmph, is their fault for showing their wealth so openly"
"Nick always does this type of things"
"What can be done after all he has his brother as backer"
Nick just stand there and didn't say nothing more, he was very used to this type of thing, and it always ends up in one of two ways, either the newcomers resign themselves to their bad luck or they argue and tried to resist, in either case, he always got what he wanted.
But contrary to his assumptions what he got was something completely different.
"Ha ha ha, I'm sorry, it is just that I never think that such a cliche situation will happen just as I arrive here. But luckily, you arrive just at the right time, I was looking for a guide and you are perfect for the job". Zatiel spoke as he laughed.
Nick was furious, not just because of the reply of the boy in front of him but because of how the rest of the apprentice starts to look at him, he knows that if he doesn't show him a lesson he will become the laughing stock of everyone in the tower.
"You little shit, I will show you the price of insulting me."
As soon as he finished speaking Nick throws a punch with all his strength directly at Zatiel head, if this attack connected it will be enough to kill any apprentice magi.
But before he could even get close to connecting his hit, a lightning covered figure show up by his side and throw a kick directly at his head.
It was so fast that Nick could barely react and raise his arm to block the attack. The lightning exploded in his arm throwing his body 5 meters before he could stabilize himself.
"You barst.." Nick was furious and was cursing at his enemy, but before he could even stop speaking the lightning figure show again.
This time it appears right in front of him and launched a punch directly at his stomach.
Nick didn't have time to react as the punch buried itself in his body making him spit blood, but this was not the end. The lightning figure starts to attack from all direction treating Nick like a punching bag.
Nick was feeling like his bones craked under the hits and his body was burning from the electricity that was running through it.
Finally, the figure grab Nicks's head and crushed against the ground making some teeth fly away.
As Ezequiel retracted his lightning he could be seen standing by the side of the now badly wounded Nick as if nothing has happened.
The rest of the apprentices were shocked, one of the reasons Nick could bully newcomers beside his backer was his great strength. But who would have thought that of the two new ones, the youngest one that looks like a kid will be so powerful that was able to onesided defeat a rank 3 body-refinement apprentice and more so, using his body as the main weapon.

"He is too strong"
"That boy is terrifying"
"Nick is badly wounded, his brother won't let this slide"
Zatiel didn't care for what the other was speaking as he started to walk to the now wounded apprentice. Although he knows getting attention could get some trouble, some degree of dominance has to be displayed or else it will be very difficult to establish a foothold in this place.
Once he arrives in front of Nick, he picks him up from the neck and speaks to him.
"Now be a good guide and tell us where is the register center".
