In a world of swords and magic, two vengeful individuals form an unlikely alliance to achieve their ultimate goals.
Ophiuchus has fallen. The clan lost its honor and status when the seventh-generation leader was executed for treason. Shu Yue, the scion of a declining, once-powerful clan, conceals her true identity in pursuit of power and revenge.
Armed with her clan's secret martial art, a sharp wit, and a faithful fox-human servant, the ambitious heiress seeks to regain their former glory, even if it means making herself an enemy of the entire empire.
An old rivalry resurfaces, and the battle for honor and glory begins. Another player emerges, a spirit beast named Liwei, whose presence changes the whole game. Whether he's a predator, prey, or companion, Shu Yue has yet to determine.
One after another, players appear on the board, each with their own agenda to pursue.
