Zenith Yin (极阴祖师jí yīn zǔshī),[1] also referred to by the old monster title (极阴老怪, Jíyīn lǎoguài),[2] is the founder of the Zenith Yin Island sect residing in the Inner Star Seas. He was formerly a disciple of the Bone Sage, until he betrayed and sealed his master. With his newfound power and freedom,[3] he was able to form his Nascent Soul and became renowned as one of the "Old Devils" of the Devil Dao in the Scattered Star Seas.[1]


Zenith Yin was a pale faced, slender eyed, middle-aged man.[4]



Zenith Yin was one of disciples of the Bone Sage, Xiao Cha. While the was in Core Formation stage, he and Zenith Brilliance betrayed their Master and sealed him within an ancient formation.[5]


First Meeting[]

After Wu Chou's scheme of setting up Exquisite Sound Sect and Hidden Fiend Sect against each other, Zenith Yin used Greater Possession Technique on his grandson to face his traitorous disciple, the Sect Master of Hidden Fiend Sect, to get the Heavenvoid Map he stole.[6] During the fight against forces of Exquisite Sound Sect and Hidden Fiend Sect, Eccentric Scarletflame suddenly changed sides and attacked the Sect Master too.[7] As others were escaping, Zenith Yin sent Heavenwide Corpses after them. Grandmaster Zenith Yin wanted to give Wang Ning to Scarletflame as a furnace cauldron, but Scarletflame decided to instead pass her on to Zenith Yin's grandson, Wu Chou. After Scarletflame showed worry about the Star Palace, Zenith Yin dispelled it saying Heavenly Star Sages were not going act.[8] He was pleasantly surprised the by skills of one of the escapees. As they captured his traitorous disciple, they left. Zenith Yin was also surprised by the presence of the Bloodjade Spider.[9]

Heavenvoid Hall[]

Later, Grandmaster Zenith Yin went to the Heavenvoid Hall, with his grandson, Wu Chou. There he met his old acquaintance, Qing Yi.[4] When Righteous Dao cultivators arrived, Zenith Yin couldn't help, but exchanged few spiteful words with them. Then he and Qing Yi were joined by Man Huzi.[10] They discussed about the plans concerning Heavenvoid Cauldron and how to deal with Wan Tianming.[11]

Before the second trial, Zenith Yin approached Han Li to see his Bloodjade Spider and invited him to the Inner Halls.[12] Wu Chou couldn't accept Han Li's refusal. Then Qing Yi appeared, foiling Zenith Yin's plans to keep it a secret.[13] After a bit of coercion, Han Li agreed to become Zenith Yin's disciple.[14]

When everyone arrived before the Inner Halls, cultivators of Righteous and Devil Daos agreed to not fight until one side acquired Heavenvoid Cauldron.[15] At the platform with the treasure, they clashed.[16] After the Righteous Dao cultivators left, Zenith Yin made Han Li use his Bloodjade Spider to seize the Heavenvoid Cauldron.[17] At that time, Righteous Dao cultivators came back to fight.[18] When the Heavenvoid Cauldron was emerging, projections of two Star Palace Elders appeared. After they killed the Bloodjade Spider, the cauldron began to disappear, but then a Heavenmend Pill fell out from it.[19] As Man Huzi snatched the pill, others gave chase after him.[20]

After a while, all six Nascent Soul cultivators reached an agreement. When they returned to the platform, the Cauldron, Wu Chou, Han Li, and the Bone Sage went all missing. Zenith Yin sensed his grandson was dead. They quarrelled and wondered what happened.[21]

After several years, Zenith Yin was still looking for Han Li. In the Outer Star Seas he searched for him with help of the Jade Cloud Sect.[22]

Revisiting Scattered Star Seas[]

One day, Zenith Yin ran into injured Man Huzi. 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 tortured him for about 100 years for knowledge and his collection.[23]

Zenith Yin acted as the Starfall Coalition's Elder. He was one of the mine-guarding elders deployed to Green Spirit Island by the coalition. After using a soul search technique on Daoist Swift Crane, Han Li learned of Zenith Yin's location and couldn't pass on that opportunity to exact his revenge.[24]

When Zenith Yin was in the stone chamber underground torturing a Nascent Soul, Han Li suddenly broke in after destroying restrictions. Zenith Yin was surprised by this, but also happy, because he yearned for the Heavenvoid Cauldron.[25] Once Han Li easily block two of his attacks, Zenith Yin was flabbergasted after realizing Youngster Han was at late Nascent Soul stage. His 18 Heavenwide Corpses were frozen with Celestial Ice Flames and the Heavenwide Corpsefire was extinguished. Before he managed to flee, he was frozen in a block of blue ice. When he was about to end his life, the Nascent Soul that belonged to Man Huzi stated that he wanted to do it instead.[26] Man Huzi explained Han Li what happened to him. He wanted to devour other Nascent Soul to have a chance for reincarnation.[23] After Han Li agreed to that, Man Huzi's Nascent Soul consumed Zenith Yin's Nascent Soul and passed away into the afterlife. Han Li then destroyed his body.[27]
