History[edit | edit source]
Heavenvoid Hall[edit | edit source]
Man Huzi intended to only obtain the Life Prolonging Fruit in the Heavenvoid Halls. However, he had acquired information that the Righteous Dao and Zenith Yin had been planning to enter the Inner Halls to obtain the famous Heavenvoid Cauldron magical treasure. His suspicions were confirmed at the entrance of the 2nd trials to enter the Inner Halls, when Qing Yi solicited Man Huzi's assistance in dealing with Wan Tianming.
In order to improve the chances that Han Li would successfully complete the 2nd trials to enter the Inner Halls, Man Huzi gifted a Glacial Ice Pearl that counter-acted the intense heat in the the "Path of Fire" within the 2nd trials. Man Huzi completed the "Path of Ice" within the 2nd trial to enter the Inner Halls. During the trials he discovered that the two Elders sent by the Star Palace sabotaged the trials making them more difficult in the hopes of killing off Devil Dao and Righteous Dao cultivators. He was relieved when Han Li completed the path of fire trial despite the traps laid by the Star Palace elders.
Upon entering the Inner Halls, Man Huzi demonstrated the might of his Heavenbearing Devil Arts by effortlessly demolishing ancient puppets that guarded the treasures in the Inner Halls. During the extraction of the Heavenvoid Cauldron he used the Beserking technique on a Bloodjade Spider providing the spider with a temporary boost of strength to lift the seemingly heavy cauldron. When the Righteous Dao cultivators attacked, Man Huzi fended them off using using his Heavenbearing Devil Arts.
After an all-out brawl broke out for the Heavenmind Pill that emerged from the Heavenvoid Cauldron, he surprised both Devil Dao and Righteous Dao cultivators with his use of Lightning Absorption to nullify a fatal blow by Wan Tianming's Heavenshifting Mines. After acquiring the Heavenmind Pill he led a chase around the Inner Halls until a truce was reached when both Devil Dao and Righteous Dao cultivators realized the Cauldron, Han Li, and the Bone Sage were all missing. Man Huzi knew that the Bone Sage was capable of both stealing the Cauldron and killing the competition. However, instead of shining a light onto the dubious relationship he forged with the Bone Sage, he opted to share thoughts that would spark an all out war to begin in the Scattered Star Seas.
- “Do you think it could be that the Star Palace elders still haven’t left and had actually remained hidden nearby? When they saw us run out, they could’ve taken the chance to slay the three Core Formation cultivators and acquire the Heavenvoid Cauldron.„

Revisiting Scattered Star Seas[edit | edit source]
When Man Huzi was at the end of his lifespan, Archsaint Six Paths visited him and asked to give his body to him after Man Huzi died so he could cultivate his devilish arts with it.

After battling for three days and three nights, Man Huzi lost his body and his Nascent Soul ended up in Zenith Yin's hands. Zenith Yin used a cruel secret technique to completely overexert Man Huzi's Nascent Soul's latent potential to make it survive. He was torturing him for about 100 years for knowledge and his collection. As a price for extending his lifespan, Man Huzi's soul wouldn't be able to reincarnate.
Man Huzi's Nascent Soul was tortured by Zenith Yin. After Han Li froze Zenith Yin in a block of blue ice and was about to end his life, Man Huzi's Nascent Soul spoken that he wanted to do it instead. Youngster Han thought about taking revenge on Man Huzi too, but he didn't because older cultivator gave him Royal Scale Plate, which saved his life once. Man Huzi told him what happened to him. He wanted to devour other Nascent Soul to have a chance for reincarnation. Han Li let him do that for a copy of the Heavenbearing Devil Arts. After consuming Zenith Yin's Nascent Soul, Man Huzi's Nascent Soul passed away into afterlife.
