Though Leixia's father was a general in the armies of the Ming Dynasty, it was her mother, Xianghua, who gave her a taste for adventure. Xianghua entranced her daughter with tales of her quest to find the Hero's Sword, and the boy she fell in love with along the way. Leixia never learned what happened to the boy, but the stories filled her with excitement and wanderlust.

"When I grow up, we'll see the world together, mother!"

Leixia never forgot the promise she made her mother, and she spent her youth practicing sword fighting in anticipation of their travels.

But on her 15th birthday, everything changed. Leixia's younger brother gifted her a pendant set with a blue stone; when she showed it to her mother, Xianghua grew frantic and immediately ran to her husband. "I don't want Leixia exposed to the outside world. I want her to become one of the emperor's wives!"

Leixia was sure it was the sight of the pendant that caused this dramatic change in her mother. She escaped the family mansion and set out to discover why.

"I don't have much to go on, but I'll figure it out," she resolved to herself. "After all, this is my destiny!"

At last, the time had come to venture out into the world of clashing swords and sweeping romance that she'd dreamed about for so long...
