Alternate Title



Eight hundred years ago, Xie Lian was the Crown Prince of the Kingdom of Xianle who was beloved by the citizens for being kind, selfless, and wanting to save the common people. Due to this, he ascended to the Heavenly Court at the young age of 17 as a martial god. However, after unfortunate events lead him to get banished twice, he is left in disgrace and regarded as a laughingstock. In a turn of events, he is able to ascend a third time, though he is lacking in both merits and worshippers. Because of this, he is tasked with missions in the mortal world to exorcise ghosts in order to sustain his divinity. Soon, he meets a Ghost King named Hua Cheng who is very fond of him. As he goes about trying to clear his debts and serve the Heavenly Court, he begins to uncover events about his past and the many goings-on of the Heavenly Court.
