Backstory

        The realm was once embraced by the power of the Elder Gods. At the time some creatures were enlightened by the elements and started practicing asceticism under their accompany. The Celestial Divinity guided them and brought the talented ascetics with him. Those left behind practiced on their own and opened their eyes to different ways of asceticism. Among all creatures there were beasts, which became Xian if they cultivated their hearts while became Demons if indulged themselves in debauchery. Men, Xian and Demons in the secular world engaged in wars and it was impossible to distinguish the right from the wrong.

Bull King confronted the monkey, yet the winner could not be determined after days. They began to appreciate one another for their strength. Bull King asked the monkey the reason he visited the forest and found out that the monkey departed for the Heavenly Kingdom, looking for the source of a particular flood.
