Wen Qing was a Late Nascent Soul cultivator residing within the Scattered Star Seas. She along with her Dao Companion Ling Xiaofeng were the Heavenly Star Sages of the Star Palace. She was deviously cunning and did not hesitate to plot and scheme to obtain advantages.
Starfall Coalition assault
Over almost 200 years after the Starfall Coalition emerged, they won over 20 islands in the Inner Star Seas. However, the Star Palace has won most of the battles between the two powers. When even the two Late-Nascent Soul leaders, Archsaint Six Paths and Wan Sangu, personally attempted to assault the Heavenly Star City to crush the Star Palace, they were defeated and driven away. After cultivating the Divine Essencefused Light, Wen Qing and Ling Xiaofeng were undefeated as long as they didn't stray far from the Heavenly Star Island, where Divine Essencefused Mountain was located.
The Heavenly Star Sages stopped their cultivation, since they didn't know that a five-elements spiritual root was required to cultivate the Divine Essencefused Light and they had only two-attribute spirit roots. With about 100 years of lifespan left, they stopped their efforts with that cultivation art and decided to focus on helping their daughter Ling Yuling with her cultivation and make her ready to take over the Star Palace.
After Ling Yuling accidentally met Han Li after about 150 years, a person wanted for the Heavenvoid Cauldron, she was greatly suprised he was at Nascent Soul stage. She quickly sent a message to their parents to recruit him. Wen Qing and Ling Xiaofeng considered his recruitment, but also planned to take his Heavenvoid Cauldron for Yuling. Believing Han Li to be at most a Mid-Nascent Soul cultivator, Wen Qing set out to capture him.
Wen Qing observed a disturbance heading towards the teleportation formations within the Heavenly Star City. When she investigated she found a group of Core Formation cultivators bribing members of the Star Palace to teleport them to the Outer Star Seas. She revealed her presence scaring all the cultivators involved. Knowing Han Li was among them, she asked him to reveal himself. When he revealed himself she was shocked to learn that he was at the Late-Nascent Soul stage. She was struck by an indescribable sense of fear upon seeing him that told her that she should avoid conflict. Knowing that she could not capture Han Li on her own, she concealed a voice transmission calling her husband to help. Unfortunately, she was unprepared for Han Li's strong spiritual sense that allowed him to intercept the transmission. In an attempt to diffuse the growing hostilities between herself and Han Li, Wen Qing engaged in idle-talk, invited Han Li to be a guest elder of the Star Palace, and allowed him to use the teleportation formation to travel to the Outer Star Seas. As one of the Core Formation cultivators, Wen Siyue was friend of Han Li, Wen Qing allowed them to freely teleport too.
Binding Han Li to the Star Palace
Unable to ascend to the Deity Transformation stage, Wen Qing and her husband decided that they could not fight Han Li and began devising plans to bind him to the Star Palace to ensure its continued prosperity. To accomplish this they wanted to arrange a marriage between their daughter and Han Li. If the marriage didn't work, they decided to share the cultivation method for the Divine Essencefused Light that would bind him to the Heavenly Star City's mountain without telling that one needed five-elements spiritual roots to cultivate it.
After Han Li returned from the Outer Star Seas, Wen Qing and her husband met him on an island chosen by Han Li to discuss the marriage proposal. Unfortunately, he rejected the proposal because he already had a wife. This led Wen Qing to mistakenly believe Han Li originated from the Great Jin. She revealed that the Star Palace possessed a teleportation formation that allows Late-Nascent Soul cultivators to teleport to an obscure location within the Great Jin. Since the marriage proposal did not work, Wen Qing and her husband settled on helping their daughter on 3 occasions in exchange for their methods in making a breakthrough to the Deity Transformation stage. Given Han Li was not from the Scattered Star Seas they provided him 3 special talismans that would allow their daughter to request favors across any distance. They were hoping Han Li would cultivate the Divine Essencefused Light and was forced to stay in the Heavenly Star City drawing upon the power of the Divine Essencefused Mountain and waste many years with this difficult technique. They weren't afraid that Han Li would see through their scheme, because he was intent on progressing to the Deity Transformation stage anyway.
Assaulting the Starfall Coalition
Few decades later, to ensure the continued prosperity of the Star Palace, Wen Qing and her husband decided to kill all other Late-Nascent Soul cultivators of the Starfall Coalition, after their daughter reached the Mid-Nascent Soul stage. Since they had cultivated the Divine Essencefused Light they were bound to the Divine Essencefused Mountain (Sage Mountain). However, to enact their plans they exploited a one-month period that occurs every century, where the power of the mountain's restriction disappears.
When the restrictions disappeared, Heavenly Star Sages invaded the main base of the Starfall Coalition and used a secret technique to detonate all the power of the Divine Essencefused Light they had accumulated throughout their lifespan. This resulted in a doomsday explosion that raze the entire base and obliterated several Nascent Soul cultivators belonging to the Starfall Coalition, including Archsaint Six Paths and Wan Sangu, and a high number of Core Formation cultivators.
