After the attack on the Capital and escaping a prison transport. He had stopped at a nearby offworld planet by the name of Shook. Planet Shook was a diseased wasteland planet that didn't have any life force that was edible and more dangerous in terms of appearance and digesting. Yangcong was clearly down for the count and with little fuel left and not having enough to make it to Earth. He clearly was struggling as he was running out of food. It had been four days since his departure from Plant and now he was in a temple like setting and sitting on a long and forgotten throne room that was covered in dust and cobwebs. Bandaged up from his left shoulder, all the way down to his left hand. It was clearly evident that the wound he had sustained was more serious than what he had initially thought. The pain was still ongoing and the tuffle soldiers he did have with him were two grunts that wore futuristic type of armor and weapons that it made them look more intimidating than they actually were. One of them spoke to Yangcong looking worried.
"Sir... we don't have enough fuel to get off this planet and from the looks of it, anyone who stays long on this planet would die from the fumes..."
It was apparent that this planet was nothing more than a graveyard for anyone who didn't grow up on this planet. He sighed to himself and shook his head.
"Go search for any ships. In my condition, there is nothing I can do..."
They left and started there search, meanwhile, he sat in frustration and clenching his right hand.

Thread's PL: 56,000 A few days after being crowned Emperor of Arcose, Azoth had made his duty to do some exploring of the 'lost sectors' of space, those that had been left there, or abandoned by their first species, to find if there were any that could be transformed into proper habitat for aliens that had lost their homes. It was all part of the secret 'Sadala' plan he had with Cheri, the technology had to be tested after all. One of his drones brought back news of a planet named Shook, one that had been destroyed in similar ways to Sadala, the perfect world for a trial.
So Azoth made his way there personally, a little run outside of Arcose for a while would do him some good, especially now that the riots had mostly stopped, and life began to resume. His reign, after the initial riots, had been accepted well by the arcosians. He was beginning to take down the hyper-corporation that had been taking over too much of Arcose's power, as well as the private military being integrated into the main army under his command.
The silence of the desert planet would be broken by the Freezing Horizon breaching the atmosphere and landing near what had been a Capitol building, where the seat of power had probably been. The reason why he landed there was that the last signal from his drone came from here, it had stopped responding a few hours ago or so.
When he arrived, he felt a presence... Yangcong. That bastard had managed to escape Plant after what he had done there... Azoth had been told in the numerous messages he received from Zuqetta by scouter.
The old gates of the Capitol would break open, leaving the figure of the Arcosian, with his finer details hidden by the star shining through the door. Azoth figured that one of Yangcong's men, or the Tuffle himself, broke his drone, probably because they thought they were being tracked.
'' Yangcong, you devil. What are you doing in this piece of trash of a planet? Almost blew you up from orbit by terraforming it, you got lucky!''
Azoth decided to approach him with care. He knew matters that Yangcong could only wonder if he knew or not. It would also be good practice for the New Emperor to try his hand at hiding his emotions. His desire to punch Yangcong all across these ruins had to remain hidden... for now.
Time to prove to the world that it can be a better place, we need heroes.
Yangcong simply sat on the throne and much to his surprise, Azoth had shown up. He had widen his glare at the man and a smirk had appeared on his face. Even though he had been sometime since their last meet up, Yangcong had heard the news of General Hibernal's death and stared at Azoth with a glare of seriousness, wondering if he was the one behind it.
"I suppose you heard the news of the attack on the Capital that I did."
He slightly squinted his eyes before continuing, holding the cane that he held with his right hand. The injured tuffle was sadly too injured to even pose a threat to the arcosian. A dying man, a shell of his former self.
"I heard your news as well. I take it you got your throne at last. I am very impressed by your merits. You truly are someone I admire from afar and I knew you would obtain your throne title eventually. Sadly, I wasn't able to hold up my end. Trying to push the saiyans off the Capital through means of negotiation didn't happen. The destruction was made however to the Capital but not by me. The saiyans were controlled by a demon who used her magic to help them transform into their ape form without the moon. The destruction of the city came from them alone. Sadly, people won't listen to reason anymore and only want to take down an individual they don't understand."
About that time, he would pull out a photo and showed it too Azoth.
"I understand our last meeting we were stuck in an illusionary world together. I never got to explaining what I saw in that world. I saw my former wife and son. Being a father and having a peaceful world. Sadly, it isn't the reality since there are saiyans who wish to continue the war through fighting rather than having a peaceful discussion."
After showing the photo of his wife and son, he placed it back into his robe pocket. Staring at the man through the single hole of his mask.

Well, it seemed the old tuffle had no intentions of hiding what he had done... what was his plan here? Did he expect Azoth to simply accept that he had done that and act like it was nothing? Surely, Yangcong knew better than just admitting to a horrible crime right in front of him... or perhaps that's exactly what he was looking for, to be punished in some way. Either that, or he had drawn his last card, and it was not exactly a good one, so he was just throwing his all and hoping something would happen from it all.
While Azoth was not buying for a second that his attack on the capitol was a 'means of negotiation to push the Saiyans out of their capital', especially since well... if he ended up 'taking' the city, Saiyans would just be rendered homeless, at best. The emperor had no idea what could have been Yangcong's plan in acting this way... other than an attempt at destroying the heart of the Saiyans on Plant.
Following that, the arcosian was subject to a photo of Yangcong's wife and kid, which he lost. That was the sad part of Yangcong's story, the fact that he, at one point, had just been a broken man looking for redemption, vengeance, or something of the sort.
'' I will share sympathy for your loss Yangcong and shed a tear for your family. But you cannot be justified in attacking the Saiyan capital, my friend. But what would your family ever think of this?''
Azoth reached into his communicator, where a small compartment would open. From it, the Arcosian would take a shattered necklace, the one Yangcong would have given to Zuqetta. He would then threw it to the ground, in front of Yangcong.
'' Answer me Yangcong. At what part did you realize you had no morals? When you enslaved the mind of a young Saiyan to follow your command, or is it when you decided to attack a heavily populated city? ''
Azoth's anger was boiling, but he was keeping it under control for now... he shook his fist at the man in front of him.
'' You know what's worst? I would take you back to Arcose and imprison you forever... but with your current power, no current prison would hold you... So I warn you. Do not set a single foot in my kingdom, because I just warned you I cannot take you prisoner.''
The Emperor closed his eyes, took a deep breath in, then out, and opened them again, seeming calmer.
'' So... what say you?''
Time to prove to the world that it can be a better place, we need heroes.
When he mentioned what his family would think of this, Yangcong had gripped his cane lightly now that he held with his right hand and simply stood up to his feet as he walked off to the side and stared at an old remnant statue which had no meaning at all.
"Believe it or not. There was a time where I didn't have the strength to rival that of a saiyan. So much so that I was seen as a second class citizen in their eyes. To have a hybrid that served as a spy for the saiyan military, it was the only position that I could get without it leading to my early death since I wouldn't have survived the frontlines. But I will tell you how my wife felt...."
Flashback - IC Content
Yangcong was in the capital within his home. Back then, the city didn't look as great and marvelous than it did now. The technology for it wasn't there and there was very few jobs one could get considering that they needed people in the military to serve and protect the community. As Yangcong got back from his mission, his now 8 month pregnant wife was sitting out on the porch in a rocking chair. She looked at him and smiled with joy on her face as both her eyes closed in excitement.
"Finally you're home. Did Commander Garrick approved of your vacation days?"
He stood beside her and folded his arms across his chest with a cocky like demeanor.
"Yea he did. I was actually surprise considering that not even frontline soldiers get that break."
As she sat there knitting a sweater, she looked at him a bit worried now, looking at his arm that was now bandaged up.
"What is that?"
He looked at his bandaged arm and then back at her, trying to make light out of a dangerous incident that had taken place during his mission.
"It's nothing, a scratch that a tuffle soldier had given me while on the mission. I'm going to go change the bandage."
Using the excuse to get out of dodge, she lightly grabbed his hand before he walked off.
"We need to talk."
He had known this was coming, so he lightly came back and brushed against the ledge that was in front of her and sat on it somewhat as he folded his arms across his chest. He continued to stand there in silence, allowing her to talk.
"I know you are helping the saiyan military with your work. But its very dangerous Yangcong. If something were to happen to you..."
He knew where this was going and the sad look on her face spelt worried and fear of having to raise a son all by herself. Before the pregnancy she was a food supplier runner that provided the saiyan military with food. A civilian job that paid for the food for the month but not enough to even cover the bills. That was something that Yangcong's job had provided and more.
"I know it's tough Koshina. But this is the only job that i'm good at. By far it isn't like a soldiers wage. But its enough to help us get by..."
Then, she had outright said it. The bottle up emotion that she had kept all this time. She just couldn't hold it any longer....
"I heard about the recent spy that lead the assault in one of the outpost in the wastelands near Hatchi City. I am worried that since you are the strongest spy, that they may force you to infiltrate Hatchi City and destroy it."
He looked at her with sorrow in his eyes. To fight for ones country or for ones family. This was a difficult pill to swallow since Koshina's family lived in Hatchi City and they were of old age and they had retired. He had no words to tell her or rather, he couldn't answer to something like that....
"Promise me! That if they gave you the order... that yo-"
He would grab both her hands to keep her mind at ease.
"Don't be crazy. Family will always come first."
He would look over his shoulder at Azoth.
"I use to be like the common man. Wanting a family to settle down. The moment I loss my family, I became a changed man due to the product of my environment. It's not an excuse that i'm trying to make. I just wished I had gotten out early... and your right, no prison can hold me. But every day I live in the prison of my mind. Asking myself if I made the right choice and wanting to go back to a normal life that won't ever happen. Like I had told you before...
my wife worried that I would attack Hatchi City some day and her own parents would be killed because of it. You look at me and see a monster Azoth. When I gave Zuqetta that necklace... I'm going to be honest with you. I didn't know how deep the amulet's power had. When I had received it long ago.
The person who had given it to me, stated that it will grant power to those that want it. At the time I didn't know what that had meant. For you see, I had wore that amulet and I wasn't given any power or command from it... Though when I wore it... I started to be lucky when it came to my fortune in fighting people. I didn't notice it at the time, but it was giving me passive power unbeknownst to me. I gave it to Zuqetta because deep down. I saw her as a daughter that wanted to protect her from this cruel world.
I know I am no saint, but I heard what you had done. You killed Hibernal. Whether it was justified or not, I had seen the man before. He isn't even a fraction of your power and he could have easily went to prison. But the worst part of it all, Ise loss her father because of you. Something that my wife had feared that I could have one day done.....
Also during the Capital attack, I didn't attack no one. I merely went there to speak. Because I was given an assignment that you probably wouldn't ever understand."

A few months back, Azoth would have believed what the Tuffle was telling him right now, about the fact that he did not know of the amulet's power and all of that talk trying to put the 'monster' blame on him. The fact was, Yangcong could not manipulate Azoth anymore, and as far as Hibernal was concerned, he knew nothing but his power level, which just told even more to Azoth about how the Tuffle saw the world around him. The old man was trying to justify himself while 'humbly' claiming that was not what he was doing... such a fool.
'' You know nothing Yangcong. Hibernal died on his own terms, I gave him countless chances to just leave, go with his daughter, but he insisted that he wanted me to kill him to prove that I was worthy of the Empire. It saddened me that Ise will have to go on without her father, and I am ready to take full responsibility for what happens, unlike you who are fleeing the responsibility of bringing an armed force to a fully populated capital, trying to invade it.''
Azoth would step closer to Yangcong if the guards tried to put themselves between him and the Tuffle, he would simply pick them up and throw them safely away.
'' You use to be able to fool me Yangcong, but I see through it now. As they say, fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. ''
He stood close to the Tuffle now, looking at him in the eyes intensely.
'' You have no trust on my part. Not anymore. As such, you are not welcomed on Arcosian soil, and I will inform of every civilization I cross path with that you are a danger to be dealt with. Consider the fact that I don't eliminate you right here, right now, as mercy for a friendship I believed in at one point.''
Time to prove to the world that it can be a better place, we need heroes.
Sadly, his world was crumbling all around him before his very eyes. The day would come where no one believed him. He would simply stare at Azoth and briefly shook his head in disbelief after he stated that he would let other nations and planets know about Yangcong and how evil he truly was. Yangcong wouldn't allow it and he had no choice but to take care of Azoth here and now.
Given his injured state, he couldn't fight effectively as before, but he would hope it would be more than enough to take him down. From there last meeting, Yangcong had assessed that his power level was simply in rival with his own. The former stories of the saiyans and the arcosians being in somewhat in the same league as one another was somewhat true when it came to power. Yangcong had that power as a saiyan and that is why he was confident in his ability to take down Azoth here and now.
"If you can't be my ally, then you will be my enemy!"
He would proceed to drop his cane and leap a bit away from Azoth. With his right arm, it would turn into a giant anaconda snake which would proceed to attempt to bite down on Azoth's entire torso with its giant mouth.

The look on Yangcong's face when he realized that Azoth was not falling for his stupid manipulation anymore was disregarded immediately by the Arcosian. The simple fact that this Tuffle believed he could fight him in this state was annoying, to say the least. Azoth stared down at Yangcong as his attack was coming for him in the form of a snake coming out of his arm. Something quite interesting, a technique he had never quite seen as far as style was concerned, but futile all the same. With a swift movement, Azoth's arm would manifest his energy arm blade and clash with the snake.
'' Yangcong, you cannot win against me. You might have become strong, stronger than I would believe you could get, but if I transform, you won't be able to defeat me. For one time in your life, accept your error, admit your defeat and stand down. I am giving you an out.''
There was definitively a motive... people who were stubborn in fighting him while they had no chance of winning, Azoth offering them to just leave him and his plan alone and those very people refusing all logic and forcing his hand into ending them... he hoped it would end differently this time.
'' I will not ally myself with someone who manipulates the mind of a young woman. I will not ally myself with someone who leads a charge against a fully populated capital by surprise. I am the Emperor of Arcose, a proper Emperor, and I will not lower myself to your level.''

Whether the man spoke the truth or not, Yangcong couldn't risk his reputation being tainted by the arcosian. With a slight squint of his eyes, he retracted his right arm back to his side as the attacks had both fizzle and the anaconda arm that was once a snake had reverted back to his normal arm. With his left arm still being injured and bandaged up, he had to thread lightly when it came to Azoth and so he would.
He would leap back away from Azoth once again, muttering underneath his breath in a matter of seconds as the spell he spoke was of the ancient arts of the Demon Realm. As he landed on the ground and cuffed his right hand close to his mouth, he spat out a stream of fire that had looped in a circle like fashion and being contained. The face of the fire resembled that of a dragon and as he hurled it straight at Azoth, the flames made a roaring sound of that of a dragon as it went straight for Azoth in hopes of burning him alive to a crisp.
After it was sent his way, Yangcong had dropped his arm to his side and stood up in an upright position with his head slightly cocked upward with a slight smirk.
"You have no idea what it's like being a war child. You have no idea what Ise is like. Me and her are one of the same. She will grow up to be just like me and so will Zuqetta. No one is born bad, we are a product of our own environment and if you can't see that we tuffles need to drive the saiyans off our planet in order to end this war. Then you my friend shouldn't be an emperor if you aren't willing to protect your own people from the villains that are the saiyans. They are invaders, just like Hibernal was to all those other countless planets. Don't forget that he was seen as a villain and an invader. The saiyans are no different and I simply want to protect my people."

As Yangcong retreated, Azoth felt a surge in the man's power. He was not done, and his next attack would be much less of a weak diversion. The arcosian looked at the Tuffle as he formed a dragon out of the fire and hurled it at him. Azoth started down at the mythical creature and shrugged. There was no point in fighting Yangcong on equal ground now, this was not a tournament match or a friendly spar. With a stomp on the ground, his body grew almost twice its usual size in an instant, and his energy surged from his greatened power.
'' Nova Shockwave!''
A wave of energy came out of his body, flinging away the magical fire dragon and steadily aiming towards the Tuffle still. Azoth was not toying around, and while he hoped Yangcong would accept his offer, he did not think he would, since most villains of this damn universe refused to yield.
Then, he began to speak, and Azoth's eyes filled up with anger. So that was his plan uh, speaking about Saiyans like they were monsters, and then pretending he could tame both Ise and Zuqetta... Azoth had to defend them from his manipulation, the Tuffle could not be allowed to leave this planet.
'' You know nothing of Ise and Zuqetta. Your pathetic attempt at manipulating them will only result in your demise. They are strong, stronger than you, and your weak will that sold out to demons for more!''
Azoth would dash towards the old Tuffle and attempt to strike at his head with fury.
'' And you are wrong about Saiyans! Granted, you might have been right a few generations ago, but the Saiyans who are now on Plant grew up there, was born and raised there! Plant is their home, as much as it is the Tuffle's. It is you who are like Hibernal, a relic of a past that refuses to change. The future will forget you Yangcong and will go on without your contribution.''
If his punch landed, Azoth would attempt to grab and hold the Tuffle in the air by the face, squeezing at the man's skull before smashing him into the ground with force.

Yangcong could visibly tell that Azoth had grown stronger just by his looks alone. Clearly he wasn't going to hold back either and he didn't expect it to be a cake walk. He also had performed an attack on his own, quickly destroying the dragon as quickly as it was formed and shattering it to nothing but smoke and particles of light fires the size of a pebble. His eyes had slightly squinted as he analyzed the attack that was coming his way. Yangcong had also began to transform, however his demonic power wouldn't be helping him this time. He had to rely on his own power this time. The attack had struck him, but as far as the bleed through was concerned, it had no effect on him since he was stronger than before. Standing still like a feeble old man, he had placed both his hands in his pocket as he started to hear Azoth speak to him.
"You know nothing in which you speak. How would you feel if a war came to your planet and those invaders wanted to take your throne?! You preach like you have lived the life I have! I will agree, the next generation cannot be faulted for what the previous generation has done. But the fact still remains that those next generation who is content with this war and doesn't want it to end. I haven't seen a single one of them even act on it! I am an old soul this is true! Time may forget about me, but I will continue the path of justice! My father had died to the tuffles and I could have acted on revenge against them! But I decided to do what was right and not blame the tuffles for wanting to protect their homes! But to go against the saiyans that started it all!"
Azoth had blitz straight for him and this was a fatal mistake on his part. Yangcong was much faster than before. Before Azoth could attempt a grabble, Yangcong was quick to step back from it and immediately send a barrage of fist straight towards Azoth in hopes of gaining the upper hand!
"YOU MAY NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY I HAVE DONE THE THINGS THAT I HAVE DONE FOR THIS WORLD! BUT I AM NOT THE VILLAIN YOU CLAIM THAT I AM! AHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Kid Yangcong laying on his bed on his father's ship just moments away from arriving to Planet Plant for the first time for the invasion. As he sat there depressed and worried, he truly didn't want to leave the previous planet he had known and loved for a few years. His father had stepped forth from the pilot station to Yangcong's room. His father could easily feel the uneasiness that Yangcong was going through. He sat on his bed and stared at him with his right eye since he had a big scar across his face which had stolen his left eye.
"Yangcong I know you didn't want to leave the other planet. But the resources and the technology that, that planet had wasn't enough to sustain our entire race."
As much as he didn't want to talk to his father, he looked at his direction and was willing to hear him out.
"Why do we have to go to this planet...this planet is a war zone from what mother has told me. She says its not safe for us..."
"The last thing I wanted to do, was to bring you to this planet Yangcong. I didn't want to leave you behind and run the risk of the herans attacking the planet or any other outside source. As long as I am near you. No one will hurt my family. You and your mother will be living in the capital we had just claimed. 24/7 security, so you won't have to worry..."
He looked down for a second, now he was happy as he was given reinsurance of safety. Still, it bothered him that his father was fighting in this war.
"Can't you guys just make peace with the tuffles?"
His father didn't know how to tell him this. Since invaders asking for a peace treaty would literally spell out, "get off our planet and that's the peace you will get." The war was early at this point and any talking of negotiations of ending the war, was spoken in private among their own and nothing was ever said to the public. When it came to bloodshed on both sides, nobody wanted it, since it effected those who weren't even involved in the war to begin with and weren't soldiers at all.

So this was Yangcong's true power. Azoth's attack with his Knight Form broke against the Tuffle's form without dealing much damage, which was frustrating for the Arcosian, to say the least. But his power, while great, was not yet to the same level as Azoth's own. But at this moment, Azoth had been exposed and took the barrage of punches without being able to defend much. He eventually found a window of opportunity to dash away from the Tuffle. The arcosian quickly gathered his energy back, he would need to step up his game if he did not want to risk too much in this fight.
'' You would have been justified to defend your planet against invaders at first, but they are settled now. The Saiyans who invaded your land are dead, only the children remain. You lost a war, and territory on your planet came at a price. I have seen Saiyans working to stop this war, you are blinded by your own hate. ''
Azoth's power began to surge once again, this time going up and beyond even his own memories of his power. He was still improving, and this was the power he would need right now.
'' You've done nothing for this world Yangcong. You attacked a Capital with the obvious goal of destroying homes and booting Saiyans from your planet by force. Your righteous facade is gone, all that's left is the pathetic being behind it.''
Azoth's form changed, his true form was revealed in all of its glory in front of Yangcong as he started into the Tuffle's eyes.
'' I rose as Emperor to stop people like you. The fact that you are broken, the fact that you have a tragic past... it's all sad and all, but it does not mean I can let you roam the universe free. ''
Now that they were back on somewhat of an equal footing, Azoth would jump back on the offensive. Throwing a combo of punches, kicks and a few swipes from his tail to the Tuffle, seeing that he was slowing down his own offensive, it probably meant he was preparing something big.
Azoth transforming into True Form(x6) for a new PL of 336,000
The arcosians speed was somewhat greater than Yangcong's and as he started his punches and tail swipes, all Yangcong could do was block them. Which left small bruise marks and lashes from his tail against his forearms and hand. The arcosian race was truly strong and Azoth was a prime example of it.
"If you paid attention to the news and the witness that were there. I did not attack anyone. I had spoken with Amara and Delia who both were on my side. They are the newer generation that you speak of. They believed in me that I did not go over there to cause trouble. I went over there to stop the renegade saiyans that plotted the death of Commander Garrick.
I have worked my entire life as a spy and once I found out this information about the saiyans and who was involved. I went out of my way to get the list of these soldiers and trying to capture them and bring them back to HQ for the tuffles and further interrogate them. As you already know, the old saiyans of the world and those involved with them, weren't going to come down nicely, nor were they going to allow the tuffles the advancement.
Those in emperor positions, don't know what the common soldiers and those below have to deal with in a day to day bases. What I tried to do was the right thing. To allow the criminals of the saiyan renegades to get away with the murder of a commander is truly unacceptable. Though the news will simply paint over it and call me a villain. Speak with Delia or Amara if you want to know the truth."

Yangcong, once again, kept speaking in lies that Azoth just knew too much to be fooled by, or rather, he thought he knew. The fact was, by naming Amara, Yangcong completely spun the table against him. Azoth knew Amara, she was part of the Galactic Frontier... and most of all, she was one of the people who warned him against the Tuffle back when he trusted him. So his words came just in the wrong moment for Azoth to believe them... especially when he followed them with some weak argument about his own person, and the fact that he was now Emperor.
'' Right Yangcong, Amara, the person who is part of the Galactic Frontier, and warned me about your multiple war crimes of the past, sided with you. What else? Are you going to say the Kais are also on your side? You're sure you don't want to make this more unbelievable?''
Azoth crossed his arms, for someone who had first attacked him, Yangcong sure was going soft at it... which was almost disappointed, as right now, Yangcong was the strongest adversary Azoth ever got, someone he would have loved to fight in the finals of the tournament, instead of a Shinjin that did not want to be there at all.
'' As for me being Emperor, Yangcong, I think you forget that I do not come from the soft life of a noble... I was a soldier. Granted, I was in the Imperial Guard, but it also means I was trained harder than the rest. I was in the place of a 'common soldier' not too long before, my ascension as Emperor does not erase that, so stop your moral signaling, desperately trying to find a way in which you are right, and I am wrong.''
With those words, Azoth would swipe at Yangcong with his ki-blade, trying to get some fight out of the Tuffle, who despite his state, still seemed to fight like he always had, with the same kind of power as well.
His blade was enhanced with Azoth's energy, and in this form, it was unlikely Yangcong could simply dismiss it as easily as he did before.

After hearing what he had to say, there was nothing else to say. Amara had told him about his war crimes, someone that he had ultimately trusted in the end. To think that the daughter of Commander Garrick would ultimately betray him and spread his crimes to everyone but mainly, Azoth...He had no time to just sit and think about all this. In front of him was his enemy and now he had no choice but to fight a person he once called friend. As he came to swiping him with his ki blade, Yangcong was quick to step to the side of his attack, while at the same time sending forth his right hand straight towards Azoth's stomach in hopes of doing some serious damage.
The palm strike would appear to be ordinary, however it had enough force mixed with his ki that invisible to the naked eye. He was hoping to break one of his ribs if it had landed successfully! This wouldn't be an easy fight for Azoth, nor would Yangcong expect this to be an easy fight for himself. The two that had known each other since the tournament and made allies with one another in hopes of changing the world for the better, were like a coin with two different sides. They had their own perspective of what was good and evil in this world. Now they were clashing blows that were made to kill the other.
