Synopsis

Dān Fěi and her brother Dān Héng are guardians of a mystical sword known as Tiān Xíng Jiàn and are being pursued by henchmen from the Xuán Guǐ Zōng who have orders from their lord, Miè Tiān Hái, to obtain the sword on his behalf. When the pair are ambushed, Fěi manages to escape with the sword’s crossguard, eventually running into itinerant swordsman Shāng Bù Huàn and a mysterious man calling himself Lǐn Xuě Yā who later become her allies against the Xuán Guǐ Zōng.

In season 2, Shāng Bù Huàn continues his journey. Having travelled far, he assumes he can rest easy but is once again surrounded by danger. Just when all seems lost, a mysterious minstrel in bright red robes suddenly appears before him…
