My Children Swarm the Cosmos – Chapter 121

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟏𝟐𝟏: 𝐀𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐛𝐥𝐞 (2)

March 23, 2621.

4th planet of the Hecartra star system.

Upper level of colony.

The neatly finished room had a ceiling supported by skeletal pillars made of black mineral.

The windows made of crystal and the curtains made of some kind of membrane showed the twilight outside, and the ceiling was lit by serene Gloworms emitting white light.

In the center of the space, there were several tables made of black mineral supported by many spines, and in front of each race’s seat was a creature shaped like the head of an Elite.

This place was a space prepared out of necessity when the upper level of the colony was being rebuilt.

It was the conference room of the Chimeraz.

“I was surprised when I heard the news after the recovery of the wave network. The victories of Hyraguroa and the leaders of each star system. Victory in Hecartra as well. And the extinction of the Vehlpciaarct.”

The creature resembling the head of an Elite was connected to the Ririm, and spoke in a voice that everyone could understand.

“Kreukkarakakakak.”

“Can we be sure that the Vehlpciaarct are extinct?”

The Hyraguroa queen, who had the queen’s guard behind her, also spoke, and the creature resembling the head of an Elite in front of the queen translated her words.

“If the Chimeraz say so, then it is so.”

The Parahtoria were directly attached to the creature resembling the head of an Elite like mycelium.

Kreion, sitting with Ludwig and Gats behind him, answered firmly.

“That is the reasonable assumption. We have confirmed that the Vehlpciaarct in each star system’s territory have been annihilated, and that the Nanozator fleet that invaded Hecartra has also been annihilated. And the Believer claimed that they completely emptied the Sculptor Dwarf Constellation.”

The queen seemed inwardly anxious, and Kreion, realizing this, bowed his head slightly and spoke again.

“If it weren’t for Your Majesty’s decision, the Vehlpciaarct of other star systems might not have been annihilated and might have survived. We cannot thank Your Majesty enough.”

“Oh, no.”

In fact, the Hyraguroa would not have come forward if it hadn’t been for the Ririm’s instigation. So it was difficult for the queen to accept Kreion’s gratitude as it was.

However, when the absolute powerhouse, Kreion, the ruler of the Chimeraz, took such an attitude, the queen’s heart could not help but bow its head as well.

That was the law of humility. Intelligent beings can instinctively sense that a powerhouse who bows their head is the real powerhouse.

“What we have done for the Chimeraz is not that great. At best, it was only about 200 fleets of support. . . . Even without us, the Chimeraz would have been able to defeat the Vehlpciaarct. It was just a matter of when.”

The queen humbled herself.

“You are right, but my gratitude remains unchanged.”

Kreion affirmed that the queen had humbled herself, and at the same time, he expressed in that one reply that he had come to favor the Hyraguroa.

Then the Parahtoria asked.

“What happened to the Believer after that?”

“You can tell by the fact that they are not here. . . . They disappeared with the disappearance of the black hole without saying anything.”

“the Believer left without saying anything? Didn’t they try to help the Chimeraz?”

“I don’t think so. It seems that they simply could not tolerate their sacred black hole being used as a weapon by someone.”

“Why do they hold the black hole sacred?”

“It’s hard to explain, but they seem to think that the last moment of the universe is the end of all existence, and that black holes are celestial bodies that help such an end. It’s something with the intention of a creator. . . . Such a celestial body.”

“Even with our Ririm’s sense of time, that is not an event in the near future, is it? The intelligent beings of that time will be very different from what we know now.”

“That’s why I said it’s hard to explain.”

“At first glance, it seems that the Believer have no interest in the present world. We, the Hyraguroa, first learned of their existence this time when they manipulated the black hole. If the Chimeraz first encountered the Believer in the Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy, did the Parahtoria, who were in that galaxy from the beginning, know of the Believer’ existence?”

“We didn’t know either. That there were such beings in this universe.”

“That’s right. Their existence would have been almost unknown. Black holes are the most dangerous celestial bodies in this universe. You don’t get close to them unless you have to.”

“Don’t humans know about the Believer?”

Kreion thought back to his time in the human world.

“They are not a race that humans know of. They just assume that such beings exist somewhere.”

“What about Lopez? Lopez, who went to the center of the galaxy where the supermassive black holes are, might have come into contact with them, don’t you think?”

“Lopez hasn’t had any stories about them for the past 20 years.”

“If it’s the center of the galaxy, there’s even less reason to approach a black hole. It’s a tough area just to withstand the gravity of the center of the galaxy. It’s meaningless to approach a black hole in such an environment. Even assuming it’s for experimental purposes, no information can ever be returned.”

“Then the existence of the Believer. . . .”

Kreion nodded.

“Yes. It seems that only a very small number of races, including us, know about them.”

“This could be an opportunity. An opportunity to access advanced science and quantum mechanics.”

“I plan to go and contact them myself after this meeting is over.”

“Didn’t they say that they don’t like other races approaching black holes?”

“As a result, the Chimeraz are in a position to be helped by them. Therefore, we have a reason to go to them. The conversation with them starts from there.”

“Ah, I see.”

In this way, various stories were exchanged about the Believer, the Vehlpciaarct, humans, and others.

They were mostly stories about the past, and now it was time to talk about the present and the future.

With the three trustworthy races gathered here.

Kreion took a look at each of them, who were engaged in earnest conversation.

The dominant race of the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy. The Hyraguroa, a large arthropod-like race.

They are an economic powerhouse with a new material industry, trading and conducting diplomacy with many races.

They have been long-time allies of the Ririm, and this time they chose the Chimeraz, even preparing themselves to become enemies of humanity.

The capital is the Large Magellanic Cloud, but it is believed that they are actually spread throughout the Local Group of Galaxies. The Ririm, a plant race.

There is no race that does not know of the Ririm’s existence, and there is no race that dares to antagonize the Ririm. The Ririm are a race that is evaluated as nature itself.

The Ririm are allies with the Hyraguroa and the Chimeraz. And they were very active in helping the Chimeraz this time.

The Parahtoria, a fungal race that mainly lives in the Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy. The dominant race of that galaxy is the Chimeraz, but that is because the Parahtoria are a subordinate race of the Chimeraz.

The existence of the Parahtoria has only recently become known, and their vitality as a latecomer is so excellent that their potential value can be highly evaluated. Moreover, they are symbiotic and friendly with the Chimeraz, just like the Ririm.

In the Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy, they were notorious for their rivalry with the Teterek and the Mahadto, but in fact they are not belligerent at all, and rather have a tendency to pursue peace and harmony. This is because they are a race that fundamentally cannot live alone.

Such pure beings have been helped by the Chimeraz several times, and they have pledged their loyalty to the Chimeraz with all their hearts. Therefore, it is thought that the Parahtoria will never betray the Chimeraz.

“The Sculptor Dwarf Constellation is empty. Declaring the extinction of the Vehlpciaarct will lead many races to speculate about that fact. If no special measures are taken, there is a possibility that they will come to occupy the empty area in a race.”

The flow of the conversation happened to be about the Sculptor Dwarf Constellation.

“I would like to make a proposal to you all regarding that matter.”

The Ririm, the Hyraguroa, and the Parahtoria focused their attention at the same time.

“What to do with the empty Sculptor Dwarf Constellation. That’s what this is about.”

Kreion continued.

“It is a galaxy that is very unsuitable for living creatures. It is so small and has so many old stars and supernovas that it can be said to be hostile to living creatures. None of us would want to take over that galaxy.”

That’s why it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that a machine race like the Vehlpciaarct ruled such a galaxy.

“But it is a galaxy that would be a waste to just leave unattended. The Vehlpciaarct had made all the races of that galaxy part of themselves. Therefore, at this point when the Vehlpciaarct have become extinct, it can be said that the Sculptor Dwarf Constellation has no intelligent races, even internally.”

There may be some primitive races, but the galaxy is considerably empty due to the extinction of the Vehlpciaarct.

It’s like a new continent.

“Moreover, the heavy element content of that galaxy is very high. So how about we, the Chimeraz, the Ririm, the Hyraguroa, and the Parahtoria, freely use it as a resource mining site and an experimental field?”

Then the Hyraguroa queen asked.

“Kreion. In order to claim control and ownership of an empty galaxy, one ruling force must be established in that galaxy, wouldn’t it?”

That was the key.

The dominant race of the Human Galaxy is the humans.

The dominant race of the Small Magellanic Cloud is the Aooa.

The dominant race of the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy is the Hyraguroa.

The dominant race of the Large Magellanic Cloud is the Chimeraz (the Ririm).

The dominant race of the Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy is also the Chimeraz (the Parahtoria).

In order to claim actual rights over a territory called a galaxy, one must be recognized as the dominant race of that galaxy.

That is why other races who want to do something in the Human Galaxy ask for permission from the humans, the dominant race of the Human Galaxy, not the Chimeraz, and in the case of other galaxies, it is common to follow the will of the dominant race.

“The Chimeraz will declare itself the dominant race of the Sculptor Dwarf Constellation?”

The question of whether to declare the Sculptor Dwarf Constellation to be the Chimeraz’s, following the Large Magellanic Cloud and the Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy.

At that time, Kreion recalled the conversation between Lopez and Rundalt.

➖If you didn’t want to hurt the peace, you should have kept your expansion in check. Didn’t you think that it was too blatant a move?

➖I understand that you want to get many races on your side and occupy more planets. But this time, you’ve gone too far by going to the Canis Major Dwarf Galaxy, a galaxy with immature races, and taking the Parahtoria as your subordinates and occupying that galaxy as well.

➖You’re not putting the Parahtoria in front, you’re hiding them behind you and declaring that galaxy to be the Chimeraz’s. What do you think the races of the Local Group will think when they see that situation?

Interests.

Diplomatic relations.

The situation.

The situation of a great power.

It is too difficult to summarize in a few concepts. The choice of the Chimeraz race would divide the reactions and thoughts of other races, and that would also lead to great changes. That was exactly what Lopez was pointing out to Rundalt.

To borrow Rundalt’s expression, it is called ‘aggro distribution’, but he doesn’t know if that is a technical expression.

‘This and that shouldn’t be said to be the Chimeraz’s.’

Of course, it is actually the Chimeraz’s, but it should be said differently.

That is why Kreion, after much deliberation, came up with the answer to put forward ‘another name’ instead of the name ‘Chimeraz’.

“I would like to create a race alliance with all of you here.”

“An alliance?”

“Oh, that’s what you meant.”

“That’s a wonderful idea.”

“Yes. By declaring an alliance of transcendent races like us, we can maximize our invisible influence. This is a way to protect us from an unspecified number of people and at the same time attract the invisible goodwill of races that are friendly to us.”

Everyone seemed to agree.

It is a proposal that cannot be refused.

The Ririm, who are allies with the Chimeraz, will be doing many things together with the Chimeraz in the future, so there is no reason to refuse.

The Hyraguroa, who are allies with the Ririm and this time chose to side with the Chimeraz. They naturally want to be safe from the various potential threats that come with their choice. Therefore, there is no reason for the Hyraguroa to refuse either.

Finally, the Parahtoria, as the Chimeraz’s loyal subordinate race, unconditionally follows the Chimeraz’s will.

Moreover, from the Parahtoria’s point of view, which is in the midst of growth, they can receive indirect protection from the Ririm and the Hyraguroa in addition to being protected by the Chimeraz.

“That’s a very good idea. So what shall we call our alliance?”

It was something that would become widely known in the future, representing the common values, characteristics, and power of the life transcendents.

“It is the Hive Alliance.”

The Hive Alliance rules the Sculptor Dwarf Constellation.
