Dong Xuan was a Yellow Maple Valley cultivator, and disciple of Hong Fu.[1]



The daughter of Hong Fu and Yun Lu, Xuān Er was defaulted into the Yellow Maple Valley sect because of her mother. Hong Fu raised her alone and never revealed to Yun Lu about Xuān Er. Although she's the daughter of Hong Fu, their mother-daughter relationship is kept as an open secret. Officially, their relationship is master and disciple within the sect, but there are those that know of their true relationship and kept it private for their sake. Xuān Er had a spoiled princess attitude as she used her beauty and charming abilities (ex: flirting, eye charming technique, and suggestive bantering) to get men to pay attention to her and admire her. She revels in the attention and finds it offensive that any man wouldn't give her the attention she deserves. As such, she found Han Li offensive as she couldn't charm him and give her attention. Even when she tried to have fun, Han would always ruin her designs in the name of safety. However, her attitude changed when he saved her life and she became attracted to him. Xuān Er stopped charming men around her and began approaching life more seriously during the The Great Tianan Zhengmo War. Things would dramatically change for her when she was captured by the opposing side and learned that her father is Yun Lu. Xuān Er's father was powerful and forced her to reject all of her cultivation and utilize her father's cultivation methods instead. While her reasons for staying on the opposing side wasn't 100% clear, she tried to intervene to protect her friends whenever she could. Because Han Li never judged Xuān Er for staying at the opposing side with her father, she couldn't help but continue to love Han Li because of it. With the fall of the Yellow Maple Valley, Xuān Er's personality became more reserve and serious, she's no longer the playful, flirtatious, and charming girl she used to be. With her father, she approaches her words carefully to avoid offending him. As the daughter of Yun Lu, nobody dares to approach her inappropriately as they recognize Yun Lu's strength and influence.


She is the only living descendant of Hong Fu. Known for her flirtatious attitude with other male disciples and the reason for why Chen Qiaoqian was almost raped and killed due to the promise of being a dao-companion with martial brother Lu.

When rumors of her dubious affairs with other male disciples came out, her great aunt Hong Fu confined her. Two Core Formation cultivators of Yellow Maple Valley, Hong Fu and Li Huayuan, met to discuss marrying their disciples. Dong Xuan was arranged to be Dao-Companions with Han Li, who had no interest in her.

When the betrayal of the Yan sect happened she was unseen but later reappeared as a member of the Ghost Spirit Sect in a confrontation with Wang Chen and Harmonious Bond Sect Young Master Tian against Nangong Bing.

When confronted by Han Li she showed no affection for him and attempted to stop him from saving Nangong Bing.

Back when [Dong Xuan] was at the Yan Clan fortress, [she] was abducted by Tian Buque, and forcibly taken back to the Harmonious Bond Sect. Only then did [she] discover [her] true lineage. It turns out that [she is] a directly lineal descendant of the Harmonious Bond Sect's Old Devil Cloudpart.

It was only through an accident that [she] ended up becoming a disciple of the Yellow Maple Valley. Before [she] was even born, Old Devil Cloudpart used a secret technique known as the Graceful Dream Art on [her], which is a cultivation art related to cultivation and bewitching charming techniques.

The cultivation art would significantly enhance [her] rate of cultivation, yet the easiest, but also the most difficult obstacle for cultivators using this cultivation art would be the trial of the inner demons. If it turned out to be easy, then the obstacle would be virtually non-existent and [she'd] progress as easily as eating food or drinking water. However, if it proved to be difficult, then [she] could be impeded by my inner demons for the rest of [her] life, in which case [her] cultivation base would never progress. In fact, there have even been precedents in other cultivators using this cultivation art, where their inner demons have been too strong and their cultivation base had even been forced to regress as a result.[3]

Asked Old Devil Cloudpart about this, and he told me that the reason you became my inner demon was most likely because you used some kind of special cultivation arts in the past, and was immune to my bewitching charming techniques as a result. After that, when I was abducted and suffered backlash from my own bewitching charming technique, you left too strong of an impression in my heart, thereby becoming my inner demon.[3]
