Synopsis and Plot Summary

It follows a young lad from the secluded Wu Meng Village whose life is turned upside down after assassins kill everyone that he knew and loved. He grows up under a new identity as Baili Tusu, thus igniting a legendary adventure.

Baili Tusu (Li Yi Feng) is the disciple of Zi Yin Zhen Ren (Ken Chang), the greatest swordsman under the heavens. He is afflicted with a demonic spirit that also grows in strength as he matures, which is why he has always had to live a life of solitude and was misunderstood and discriminated against by his peers in Tian Yong City.

Even so, his martial arts senior Ling Yue (William Chan) treats him like a real brother along with their martial arts junior Fu Qu (Dilraba Dilmurat) who has constantly showers him with kindness. He also becomes fast friends with Ouyang Shao Gong (Qiao Zhenyu) and Feng Qing Xue (Yang Mi), two people who have come under the tutelage of Tian Yong City for their own reasons.

After being accused of a crime he didn't commit, Bailu Tusu is forced to leave his home behind and it opens doors to an adventure with his newfound friends that also include a fox demon (Zheng Shuang) and her admirer (Ma Tianyu).
