Chapter 565: God Like You
This is a chapter I didn’t really see coming. But it was interesting enough. A part of the origin of Juha Bach. The King of the Quincy.
He has been quite a unique being from the moment he was conceived. Apart from a soul being in a body the baby had nothing. No sight, no hearing, no sense of touch… nothing.
Yet somehow it knew it had a way to survive. Oddly enough the people around him knew he had something special aswell. By a simple touch it would heal any trouble it had.
So whenever someone touched him a piece of his soul slipped into that other person. Also during the healing process all that the healed person experiences is absorbed into the shard of the soul present in that person.
At the moment of death of that individual the shard of the infants soul goes back to the main body. It seems however that anyone who touched the child did not have long to live. Regardless everybody flocked to the infant for its healing powers.
slowly overtime the child’s body healed until eventually his body was fully healed and he took the name the town’s people were calling him. The name of a God they worshipped. Yhwach.
The chapter switches to Ishida approaching the King’s private chambers.
Hachwalt is already there acting as a guard it seems. apparently he has been suspicious of Ishida from the start and gives him a little verbal push basically telling him Ishida has already been marked as the chapter explains better that I would.
It is nice to have confirmed why Ishida is their. He wanted to exact revenge for his mother’s death, but Ishida has been pushed into a corner without realizing it. He is now bound to the King via his soul.
Haschwalt continues to explain that the only way for the King to continue to live on as he does now is to spread his soul to as many ppl as possible and then for those people to die so his body will not fall back into its lifeless form.
So the death of anybody within the dome will fuel the life and strength of the king. What a guy….
