Nangong Wan[]

However, it was an aphrodisiac and caused both of them to make passionate love with each other. After both awakened to realized what happened. Nangong wanted to pretend nothing had happened and only an accident, however, both had feelings for each other since that encounter. Nangong was in denial of her feelings for Han, but Han would try to be extra nice to her whenever they meet. Unable to admit her feelings towards Han, she would keep him guessing for centuries.

Love Interest[]

Violet Spirit[]

Han Li's close confidant, they are mutually attracted to one another.


Chen Qiaoqian[]

Qiaoqian was part of the Yellow Maple Valley sect as Han Li; she is Han's senior sister. When they first entered the sect, she was betrothed to the scrupulous Lu but he was later killed by Han. Lu drugged Qiaoqian and planned to rape and kill her before going after Dong Xuan but Han saved her, defeated Lu, and got rid of his body. Because of her drugged state, Qiaoqian grabbed Han and kissed him; he resisted her advances and fed her a memory erasing pill to forget his involvement. However, the memory erasure wasn't full-proof and she had lingering feelings about Han. Since then, Qiaoqian became romantically interested in Han. During The Great Tianan Zhengmo War, the two would be involved in a covert mission with the Seven Sects Alliance. Han was involved in the deaths of two advanced cultivators of the alliance: Lu Tian Meng (Spirit Beast Sect) and Xuan Yue (Masked Moon Sect). To avoid suspicion, he erased Qiaoqian's memories to remove his involvement again. Despite multiple memory erasures, Qiaoqian continues to have a strong attraction to Han and tries to spark a romance between each other. Although Han is attracted to Qiaoqian, he always kept his distance and kept things platonic. In a private place in the mountains, Qiaoqian told Han her family has made arrangements for her to marry off the Qin Family. Qiaoqian saw how her own mother lived an unhappy life from her marriage into the Chen family and Qiaoqian doesn't want that to happen to herself. Qiaoqian wants to choose to be with the man she loves and be free of all family obligations; she made it clear she wants to run away with Han and build a life together. However, Han saw her desperate plea as a desire for freedom and not him. Han never directly rejected her, but Qiaoqian can feel Han unable to reciprocate her feelings and presumed he had someone else in his heart. She gifted him a new uniform and the two would part ways after the fall of their sect. Many years later, Han was able to reconnect with surviving members of his sect and they told him Qiaoqian died. After they parted ways, Qiaoqian never married into the Qin family and died a single woman. News of her demise shocked Han and mourned for her. Despite being attracted to Qiaoqian, Han never explored a relationship with her.

Mo Caihuan[]

After Han killed Mo Juren (his master) for trying to take his body, he met his wife and daughter (Caihuan). Juren poisoned Han in his final moments fighting him and his wife had the cure, but it would be at the price of marrying Caihuan. Han convinced Lady Mo to abandon this idea and accept his living doll as their body guard as a trade. Despite being her father's killer, Caihuan never harbored any ill feelings towards Han and was attracted to him due to his kind nature. After the destruction of her family house, she restarted life in another city and encountered Han again. After they managed to escape from danger, Caihuan couldn't hold her feelings back and held him with tearful affection. However, Han never reciprocated her feelings. As a cultivator, he couldn't get himself involved with a mortal. However, Caihuan did her best to be involved in his life over years of sporadic encounters. Eventually, Caihuan realized Han will outlive her and gave up pursuing him. Han did care for Caihuan and left her with face-setting pills to extend her life, but she never took them and kept them as a memento of Han. Despite being a medic, Caihuan developed an incurable condition that eventually took her life. Caihuan would be one of those women Han would lament in his memories from time-to-time.

Dong Xuan[]

Originally, Xuan'er disliked Han for not falling into her manipulative charms, irritated at his cautious nature, and boring attitude when he escorted her.

Although Han can sense her attraction, he never reciprocated due to her immature attitude; he always kept things platonic and courteous.

Fourth Level Gang[]

Qing Wen's Group[]

Yellow Maple Valley[]

He is eventually betrayed by the sect and left as a scapegoat for higher level cultivators during the devil dao invasion.

Drifting Cloud Sect[]

Reincarnation Hall[]

Han Li first joins the reincarnation hall after obtaining a reincarnation hall mask in the Northern Cold Immortal Domain. The reincarnation hall is said to be directly against the Heavenly Court and is said to have ties to the Grey Immortal Realm. Han Li uses the Reincarnation Hall for its major benefits in trading items with a transmission disk that allows items and information to be easily traded.


Heavenly South Region[]

Han Li became famous for the first time among the lower grade cultivators for killing 8 Devil Dao Foundation Establishment cultivators while being at the same stage.

Later on, during the war against the Moulans, his fame began to spread after he managed to escape from a Divine Sage (Late Nascent Soul) using the Bloodshadow Evasion Technique even though he was still at the early Nascent Soul Stage. Furthermore, during the climax of the war he accomplished multiple achievements like neutralizing the Moulan’s Sacred Bird by stealing its ancient lamp and reversing the tide of the battle by releasing his Weeping Soul Beast that destroyed all the Copper-armored Corpses. During the skirmish, Han Li also saved the Great Heavenly South Cultivators (Mid Nascent Soul) from the blood cages and killed the Yin Sifting Sect Master's wife. His feats were then revealed by Long Han at the end of the battle.

His trip to Devilfall Valley only confirmed his abilities to be on par with the three Late Stage Nascent Soul Cultivators who rule Heavenly South Region. These old eccentrics clearly recognized him as an equal as he managed to stall the Elder Devil alone for quite some time.

Scattered Star Seas[]

Han Li was known there for being the Exquisite Sound Sect's Guest Elder and the one who stole the Heavenvoid Cauldron, the top treasure of this region.

Afterwards, he had to flee from the Nascent Soul Eccentrics that wanted to get back the Cauldron while escaping from the war that raged between the Star Palace and the Starfall Coalition. He therefore decided to hide in the Outer Seas for some decades. It is during this period that he obtained his first title Insect Devil, after killing numerous Core Formation Cultivators that were trying to steal the beast he was hunting.
