Liam sent him to the meeting room as soon as he arrived at the Insurgent Trifecta. There were already quite a number of top-level personnel at the scene who were discussing something in all seriousness.
“It’s Sergeant Larson. Welcome, welcome.”
Noticing Zayn’s arrival, Liam cracked a smile and waved at Zayn to signal him to sit next to him.
Zayn replied with a grin. His gaze swept across the room in a simple manner and he quickly noticed that there were unfamiliar faces that he had never seen before in the meeting room other than Liam, Dick, and other the Insurgent Trifecta’s top-level personnel.
In the call earlier, Liam had roughly briefed him on the Aeon Karpos case which immediately piqued his interest.
After making arrangements for Faye, he came rushing over at once so that he could find out about the situation in detail.
Everyone in the meeting room looked at Zayn upon his arrival. The few new faces were especially interested in him, and there was astonishment in their gazes that could not be concealed. It was as if they did not expect him to be so young.
Zayn made his way to Liam and sat down next to him. Liam pointed to a middle-aged man sitting at the main seat and said, “Sergeant Larson, this is Joe Pennywise, the director of the Insurgent Trifecta.”
Zayn was not surprised to learn about the man’s identity. In reality, he had already figured out who he was when he first entered the room. Speaking of which, it was his first time meeting the director of the Insurgent Trifecta.
Zayn had only taken one glance to discern that the man’s capabilities were outstanding. The man was a fourth-tier master fighter who was more powerful than Dick Cheney.
Moreover, the man was very graceful, unlike Dick and Liam who were tough and unyielding. On the contrary, he looked more like a university professor, the type whose mind was filled with boundless knowledge.
Joe took the initiative to stand up and shake hands with Zayn. He said with a smile, “So, you’re the man whose name is known far and wide, Sergeant Larson. I’ve heard so much about you.”
Zayn shook his hand and said smilingly, “Pleased to meet you, Sir Pennywise.”
Both of them shook hands peacefully and loosened their grip after a gentle handshake. Zayn could sense that Joe admired him very much.
“Sergeant Larson, you’ve achieved so much in life at such a young age. It’s our organization’s blessing that you’re willing to join us!” Joe did not bother to be stingy with his admiration for Zayn.
Zayn smiled and said, “You’re too courteous, Sir Pennywise. I’ve only been lucky, and I only managed to train myself to become a fourth-tier master fighter by chance.”
Next, Joe praised Zayn a little more and treated him with enthusiasm followed by the rest of the new faces greeting Zayn politely.
It was apparent that they had learned about his capabilities as a ferocious fourth-tier master fighter who had beaten The Fool, Satan, and the Scarlet Witch to death in a single move.
The Insurgent Trifecta was an organization that prioritized one’s capabilities over anything else. Therefore, Zayn was well-respected naturally due to his outstanding capabilities.
What drew Zayn’s attention was the burly man seated on the opposite side. He was the instructor of the Dragon’s Blood squad.
The man had a flushed complexion, especially around his neck. It was as if his neck was engorged with blood at all times.
In Zayn’s perception, Byleth’s capabilities were a little more formidable than Dick’s, and he was almost the most powerful third-tier master fighter around.
In this meeting room, the top powerful forces in the Insurgent Trifecta were gathered with the most dominant being the director, Joe, followed by Byleth, Dick, then Liam, and Holden.
Of course, Zayn did not include himself. If he were to compare himself, he was no less powerful than Joe.
After engaging in a series of simple small talk, they began to enter a formal discussion.
Joe said in a deep voice, “It’s less than half a month away from the maturation of the ambrosia fruit. The order from above is that we must get our hands on the ambrosia fruit! Ambrosia is an extremely rare, precious treasure in this world currently, and it possesses research values that are beyond one’s imagination!”
“If we can seize the ambrosia for ourselves and hand it over to the country for research, we will be able to clone the fruit if we can discover the secrets hidden within it. Then, our country will be able to achieve a massive leap in power.”
