|Light Novel||Chapter 229 – Xiao Yu|
Xiao Yu is a youth that Xiao Ning'er meets while separated from the rest of the group by the Fog of Misleading on the first layer of the Nine-Layered Deathlands in the Nether Realm. Even though she is actually a girl, she appears and talks as a guy, leading to some misunderstandings. She was raised by her foster father, Lord of Nether, Ming Fei.
Though she does not know her own origin, she is aware that there are two mysterious auras within her that have always been helping and protecting her. She can also feel that these auras are connected to the mysterious space-time artifact ring that she has always had.
Unbeknownst to her, Nie Li talks with her birth father and learns that millions of years ago, after being defeated by the Sage Emperor, he sealed his and his wife's cultivation inside Xiao Yu's blood with the Void Spiritual Array. He then used a secret technique to send her to this time period.
Appearance and Personality
She appears to have a friendly and easygoing nature. Though dressed as a man, She has a very graceful and pure atmosphere which Nie Li makes fun of. She is described as having thin, long brows, gentle eyes, and a long nose. Her skin is the color of white jade and as smooth as water. Her eyes were elegant and full of spirit, without a hint of impurity. Her lips seem to be arched in a smile, yet at the same time it isn’t a smile.
Her chest appears to be flat, with a very complex inscription pattern (the Void Spiritual Array) tattooed on it. Later on, despite the fact that Nie Li discovers that she is a woman, she still continues to wear male clothes.
Nothing is known about Xiao Yu's life in the previous timeline.
Exploring the Nine-Layered Deathlands Arc
- After meeting back up with Nie Li and Ye Ziyun, Xiao Ning'er introduces Xiao Yu to them. Xiao Ning'er believes she is trustworthy as she helped her out when some other men hassled her.
- Nie Li is almost immediately on guard against her. She seemed too perfect. Xiao Yu suggests traveling together for awhile, which Nie Li finds even more suspicious, but since Nie Li is unsure what she will do if refused, therefore he had no choice but to agree. While they are walking together they come across a Spiritual Origin Fruit. When asked if she has any interest in it, Xiao Yu replies that she has a special physique that would get no benefit from it.
- After talking with Nie Li a bit more, she suddenly brings up the fact that Nie Li is a Senior Inscriptionist, increasing the suspicion he had for her. This made Nie Li raise his guard against Xiao Yu further, as he suspected that Xiao Yu had investigated him. After warning her that he would not allow her to harm his friends, Nie Li answered her question by comparing inscription patterns to the Power of Law. Xiao Yu then revealed that she also knew that Nie Li had two types of Law energy. She then stated that she meant no harm and was only a little interested in Nie Li. After she said that she had some interest towards Xiao Ning'er as well, Nie Li again threatened him if he hurt her. However, Xiao Yu just called Nie Li out on the fact that he had already chosen Ye Ziyun and should give Xiao Ning'er over to her.
- As they travel together, Xiao Yu continues to tease and provoke Nie Li. When Nie Li questions Xiao Yu's sometimes odd behavior, such as being unconformable with being close to or touching Nie Li, she claims that she has mysophobia, a fear of being dirty. 
The Zombie Jiao-dragon:
- When the continuing battle between the Zombie Jiao-dragon and Cang Ming draws near. Xiao Yu unexpectedly pulls out a jade hair pin a shoots it towards them, knocking the overwhelmingly powerful lightning spear out of Cang Ming's hands like it was nothing. This frightens Cang Ming and he abandons his battle and leaves. Xiao Yu then creates several water dragons to hold the Zombie Jiao-dragon in place and removes the Scarlet Pearl from its forehead. After letting the Zombie Jiao-dragon go, she offers the pearl to Xiao Ning'er, but is immediately refused. Nie Li then shamelessly insists on taking it.
Death God's Tomb:
- After traveling into the depths of the first layer of the Nine-Layered Deathlands, the group followed some Demigod rank experts to a floating tomb guarded by a large skeleton that appears to hold a piece of the shattered Divine Spark of the Death God. The large skeleton viciously protected the entrance to the tomb as in simultaneously fought off the 40 - 50 Demigods rank experts. Xiao Yu and Nie Li decide to explore the tomb and leave Xiao Ning'er and Ye Ziyun hidden outside. To make sure that they are safe, Xiao Yu gives them a Golden Scroll.
- In order to sneak inside Xiao Yu covered herself and Nie Li in a two meter square piece of cloth with the Shadow Misleading inscription pattern. This allowed them to get close to the door, but was very awkward, as Xiao Yu would get angry every time Nie Li touched her. The door itself was sealed by over 300 complex inscription patterns, only adding to their frustration and bickering. After a while Nie Li felt that Xiao Yu was taking too much time breaking the patterns and wanted to took over. He took over and broke five foundational patterns, which are the focus and all the rest were just there to hide the answer. Xiao Yu is furious at Nie Li's much high knowledge of inscription patterns. She then used a set of Nether Realm stone keys to open the door and quickly enter.
- Xiao Yu leads them down the narrow staircase into the tomb while avoiding the many inscription pattern traps. At one point they are attacked by Ghouls, which he quickly destroys with a lightning Divine Guardian Rock. While the shield was activated they decided to quickly run ahead and let it protect them from the traps, however they were dragged into a space distortion. Using the power of his Yin Yang Blast x10, Nie Li was able to break the distortion and they reappeared within the tomb, but this time in a flowing river.
- After freeing themselves from the river, Xiao Yu asked Nie Li if was interested in participating in the test to become a disciple of the Lord of Nether. She tried to entice him with information about the benefits, such as visiting the Divine Feathers Sect.
- Suddenly the walls themselves turned into large stone hands and began to attack them. Xiao Yu was able to defend against them with her palm strikes, but the law of death was slowly overwhelming her. Having discovered that the tomb itself was the body of the Death God, Nie Li took this opportunity to start attacking the walls with his Yin Yang Blast until he able to break through. They were able to escape the stone hands only to find themselves in a vast area with the large black heart of the Death God and many of the already captured experts being drained of their energy. However, Xiao Yu was able to use her Frost Chaos Sword to cut the tethers and free them.
- While Xiao Yu was freeing the experts, Nie Li defended against the Death God's law energy with his own laws of light and darkness. When Xiao Yu and the experts watched the giant scarlet hands slam into Nie Li they believed that he was dead. Though their own powers of law were being suppressed, they worked together in an attempt to fight back against the Death God. However, they were quickly recaptured. The only thing able to fight against him was Xiao Yu's Frost Chaos Sword. The Death God realized that the only way Xiao Yu would be able to have that sword is if she is close to the Lord of Nether, most likely his child, and saw his chance to get revenge.
- As the tomb was suppressing his law energy, the Death God was eventually able to break through Xiao Yu's defenses and grab hold of her. Now that she was bound, like the other experts, her energy was being quickly absorbed. On top of that the Death God continued to viciously whip her in an attempt to satisfy his hatred. When Xiao Yu refused to submit to the Death God, she was continuously tortured, being stabbed several times and having a rib shattered.
- Nie Li suddenly reappeared, now controlling a third law, the law of death. Since the Death God's attacks were formed from death energy, they could no longer harm him. Nie Li simple touched the black heart and the Death God, his tethers, and the tomb all faded away.
- After saving them the demigod experts gratefully thanked Xiao Yu and Nie Li and asked if there was anything Nie Li wanted in return. Nie Li only stated that he had some difficulties with the Wugui Family and the Dark Guild and they immediately offered to deal with them for him. Two of the experts, members of the powerful Dragonchant Family and Fiery Elf Clan, also asked him to visit their families in the future.
- After confirming the Nie Li would participate in the Lord of Nether's new disciple selection, Xiao Yu told him that he would see him there. He then said goodbye and left, telling Nie Li to be sure to bring the golden scroll.
The Master of Nether's Disciple Arc
Lord of Nether:
- During the Lord of Nether's Disciple Selection Xiao Yu was with Ming Fei and the other six ambassadors from the Draconic Ruins Realm on the ninth layer of the Nine-Layered Deathlands. While observing those that were participating in the test, Xiao Yu pointed out Nie Li's amazing knowledge of inscription patterns to his father after they witnessed the incident with the Celestial Qilin.
Nie Li and Xiao Ning'er:
- Xiao Yu greeted Nie Li and Xiao Ning'er after the test ended and they were brought to the ninth layer of the Nine-Layered Deathlands. She explained to them that she is the adopted child of the Lord of Nether and will be traveling with them to the Draconic Ruins Realm in three months, when they return.
Leaving for the Draconic Ruins Realm Arc
- After three months, Xiao Yu is there to welcome them back and lead them to the Divine Feathers Sect in the Draconic Ruins Realm.Guan Yi was the third student chosen by the the Nether Master. Xiao Yu could see that he held some arrogance in his talent and tried to warn him that his current level was only the very lowest in the Draconic Ruins Realm.
- Xiao Yu then explained about the Spiritual Root that they will have to take to determine the district of the Skysoul Institute they will study in. This really worried Lu Piao, as he was afraid he would not do well. After seeing how worried Lu Piao was about the test, Nie Li tried to reassure him, however Guan Yi found Lu Piao's fear pathetic and looked down on him. This provoked Nie Li, but Xiao Yu warned them that the Skysoul Institution doesn’t allow any fights to happen within its territory, aside from challenges in tournaments. There are strict punishments for those who don’t abide by those rules.
- While they were waiting, Hua Ling arrived with his large group of new students from the Little Heaven Realm and tried to provoke her. His father is up for the same position as Ming Fei, Chief Enforcer of the Outer Division, but Xiao Yu just ignored him. However, when Enforcer Gu allowed Hua Ling to cut in line, Xiao Yu could not stand idly by. Enforcer Gu offered to move Xiao Yu in front as well, but she refused. Hua Ling instead, to smooth out the situation, said his students would be tested along with Xiao Yu's.
- While watching the students being tested, Hua Ling took every opportunity to poke fun at the fact that despite Xiao Yu's 7 grade Heaven spiritual root, as he had yet to break through to the Heavenly Fate Realm and form his first Fate Soul. Nie Li defended Xiao Yu by spouting off that a person with a heaven spiritual root will only reach greater heights if they struggle to break through to the Heavenly Fate Realm. He later tells Xiao Yu that he made that up though.
- When one of Hua Ling's students has only an 8 grade Man spiritual root, he rebukes him as trash and demands that he return to their realm. Rather then face the humiliation of returning a failure, the student instead commits suicide. The lack of any sign of regret greatly angers Xiao Yu and the other watching.
Nie Li and Lu Piao:
- Xiao Yu was surprised when Lu Piao and Nie Li were tested and found to have a 5 grade and 8 grade heavenly roots respectively. She made an off-handed comment to Hua Ling, who had now been taken down a notch. She next directly warned Nie Li, Lu Piao, and Guan Yi that Hua Ling is the type to seek revenge when humiliated and to be cautious of him.
- After separating with Guan Yi, who was placed in the south district, Xiao Yu tells Nie Li and Lu Piao that they may stay with her in the courtyard that she is renting in the private section of the west district. She showed them the student market where Artifacts and high level demon spirits are traded for Spiritual Stones. She also warns them again to be careful to not provoke others and tells them not to leave the courtyard without her or go into her room. Before leaving to complete their registration, she gifts them each two spiritual stones so they can start cultivation Heavenly Energy.
Huang Ying and Yan Hao:
- When Xiao Yu returns he finds Huang Ying and Yan Hao in her courtyard. She largely ignores the infatuated looks of Huang Ying and the jealous provocations from Yan Han while asking them both to leave. The situation just escalates though, as two other girls that like her (unaware that she is a girl) arrive, so Nie Li and Lu Piao head to their rooms to cultivate in private.
- Later that night Xiao Yu came to Nie Li's room to ask for help with breaking through to the Heavenly Fate Realm. After Nie Li explained that his Myriad Dragonroars cultivation technique is incomplete, he offered to use Acupuncture to assist Xiao Yu in breaking through. The atmosphere was a little awkward as Xiao Yu was self conscious and embarrassed in front of Nie Li.
- The acupuncture immediately was effective, as Xiao Yu moved directly to 3 Fate Heavenly Fate Realm. He was extremely grateful and thanked Nie Li, who requested some spiritual stones in payment. However, when he heard Xiao Yu only had ten, he took five and called them even.
Joining the Skysoul Institute Arc
Nie Li and Lu Piao:
- When Nie Li and Lu Piao did not return to her courtyard directly after class, Xiao Yu had become worried about them. Then, when they did show up they casually remarked that they had gone for a walk and had acquired five hundred Spiritual Stones. Though she tried to refuse, they pushed about fifty of these on to Xiao Yu in thanks for all the help and support he has given them.
- The next day she took them to visit the Saint Soul Grounds, one of the three training grounds and the Skysoul Institute. She then explained about how the ranking in the training ground worked and the possible rewards for placing high.
- As they climbed the steps of the alter in the training grounds, Nie Li was approached by this mysterious girl named Ying Yueru. Xiao Yu was worried and made a point of warning Nie Li about her. However, Nie Li had a unconcerned and unusually trusting faith in this girl, which annoyed Xiao Yu.
Xiao Yu's Cultivation:
- The previous times that Xiao Yu had tried to cultivate in the Saint Soul Grounds she was only able to make it up to the fifth step, despite her 7 Grade Heaven Root. This is most likely related to her incomplete Myriad Dragonroars cultivation technique and the fact she was unable to reach the Heavenly Fate Realm for so long. Now that she had finally broken through, the Myraid Dragonroars technique was showing its true strength. This progress surprised Xiao Yu most of all, as she easily progressed up to the 120th step of the alter. This placed her as rank eleven on the Saint Soul Board.
- Xiao Yu was shocked when Long Yuyin showed up to put down Nie Li and he completely lost his cool. Xiao Yu had yet to see Nie Li react in such a way and recklessly accept a bet against her in the Saint Soul Board rankings. Xiao Yu was very worried about him and was afraid that he would not survive three lashes from Long Yuyin if he lost. She was shocked by Nie Li's overwhelming aura of Heavenly Energy, and stared in amazement as he thoroughly won the bet and crushed Long Yuyin's pride by ascending to the 136th step. Xiao Yu also witnessed the three vicious lashes that Nie Li gave Long Yuyin. Once again, she was puzzled at why Nie Li held such enmity towards Yuxin and what master he was referring to.
- After cultivating for two more days, Nie Li, Lu Paio, and Xiao Yu left the Saint Soul Grounds only to be confronted by Hu Yong and nine Heavenly Fate Realm experts. When he declared that he was Long Yuyin's fiance and that he would get revenge for her, Nie Li assumed that she sent them.
- Even though Hu Yong tried to threaten him, Nie Li dared him to actually follow through. Because of the Skysoul Institute's rules Hu Yong ordered Hu Tian, to take Nie Li, Lu Piao, and Xiao Yu to an isolated place to beat them. Just then two of the elders of the Skysoul institute arrived. Nanmen Tianhai and Huang Yu warned Hu Yong that the institute would take action if he harmed Nie Li. Since he was unable to take action today, Hu Yong then took his people and left.
Nanmen Tianhai and Huang Yu:
- They warned Nie Li, Lu Piao, and Xiao Yu to avoid causing trouble and focus on cultivating. Though Lu Piao thought this was unfair as they did not start the conflict, Nie Li and Xiao Yu agreed with him and said that they would not back down if others caused trouble with them. The elders ended up agreeing that they would protect them if required.
- After the elders left, Nie Li and his friends where then approached by Gu Heng, the current person inline to become the next head of the Gu Clan. Just like other major families, he invited Nie Li and Lu Piao to join his clan, but Nie Li directly rejected the offer. Nie Li once again told Lu Piao that they should not join any of the factions in the Divine Feathers Sect. Xiao Yu agreed that this was the best policy for them.
Acquiring Cultivation Resources Arc
- The next day Xiao Yu again warned Nie Li to be careful, as after his defeat of Long Yuyin in class he has attracted a lot of attention. She then took Nie Li and Lu Paio to the second testing ground, the Ghastly Ruins. Upon entering the training ground she was separated from Nie Li and Lu Piao, so she started to kill Ghouls on his own to collect Soul Scales.
- While inside the training grounds Hua Ling's people constantly attacked and interfered with Xiao Yu. Though with her strength they were unable to defeat her, they did hinder her ability to collect soul scales. In the end, she was only able to gather five thousand of them for a total of 160 soul stones. After leaving the training ground, he asked why Nie Li exited early and heard about his run in with Murong Yu.
- She went with Nie Li to the student market to sell a large batch of god level growth rate demon spirits and saw Nie Li sell the majority of them to Li Xingyun. She was very curious were Nie Li could have gathered so many rare demon spirits, but Nie Li refused to tell her.
Xiao Yu's Cultivation:
- Nie Li later provides her with a god level dragon bloodline demon spirit. Though at first she refuses, Nie Li was able to eventually convince her to take it.
The Heavenly Note and Skyblaze Sects Visit Arc
Xiao Yu's Cultivation:
- At some point before this Xiao Yu was able to raise her cultivation to 4 Fate Heavenly Fate Realm.
Supporting Allies Arc
- When Xiao Yu returns Nie Li immediately notices that she has dropped a rank down and can guess what happened. After Xiao Yu confirms that he was killed by Hua Ling, Nie Li was enraged and quickly decided to seek revenge. Even though Xiao Yu thought it was too dangerous.
- Xiao Yu went with Nie Li and Xiao Ning'er to visit Li Xingyun in order to borrow his forces to deal with Hua Ling. She felt touched that Nie Li was willing to go so far for her.
- They then met up with Gu Bei followed him to the martial field where the sparring matches were taking place. He watched as Gu Bei revealed his true strength for the first time and defeated Gu Kuan, Gu Yan, and Gu Bing.
- She was also there when the clan elders announced that Gu Bei would now be the first in-line successor for the Gu Clan Patriarch. Nie Li suspected that the elders had some knowledge about Gu Heng poisoning Gu Lan and wanted to cause him a set back.
- She was also there to watch Nie Li and Xiao Ning'er say goodbye, as she had to return to her sect.
- The next day Xiao Yu went with Nie Li and Lu Piao, as well as two hundred of Li Xingyun's men from the Heavenly Path League, to kill Hua Ling. Xiao Yu was quiet as Lu Piao and Nie Li loudly demanded compensation for her death. When Hua Ling refused, Li Hu easily wiped him and his people out.
Gathering Deity's Lakes Arc
- Xiao Yu spotted Long Yuyin entering Nie Li's room in the middle of the night and assumed they were up to no good. When Nie Li came out of the room, she told him that he should feel guilty for betraying Xiao Ning'er before storming off.
Entering the East District Arc
- Now that a year has passed, Nie Li, Lu Paio, Long Yuyin, and Gu Bei are able to move to the east district from their class. Xiao Yu was also able to move to the east district from her class. She was there with everyone else to witness Nie Li's fight with Murong Yu. Due to his extremely expensive and rare artifacts, the fight was a humiliation that was completely one sided against Murong Yu.
- She watched as Nie Li fought the even more powerful Ye Chong at the request of the elders. Though she grew very nervous for Nie Li's safety, as it was obvious that Ye Chong was aiming to kill him, there was little he could do. Fortunately, Nie Li was finally able to defeat Ye Chong, however he was forced to reveal his god level growth rate Bloodwing Saint Jiao-dragon.
- When Venerable Flameless insisted that Nie Li needed to fight another directly after the difficult battle, it became obvious to everyone that he was trying to kill Nie Li. Li Xingyun did his best dissuade Venerable Flameless, but with his position there was very little he could do. After Nie Li refused to fight, Venerable Flameless even went so far as to publicly accuse Nie Li of being a spy of the Demon God Sect. This enraged Xiao Yu and Nie Li's other friends who shouted out in his defense.
- To everyone's surprise, Nie Li suddenly changed his mind and agreed to the match. When Long Yuyin showed concern for Nie Li and asked him not to fight, Xiao Yu became even for convinced that Nie Li had betrayed Xiao Ning'er.
- There was little Xiao Yu could do besides anxiously watch as Nie Li fought against Guo Huai. Even though she was confident in his ability, Guo Huai is five Heavenly Fate ranks higher then him. When it did not seem like Nie Li would be able to win, Xiao Yu and the others where about to intervene in the fight when Li Xingyun stopped them. Nie Li was suddenly able to break through to 5 fate and use his renewed strength to ruthless ram the exhausted Guo Huai until he won.
Xiao Yu's Cultivation:
- Xiao Yu presumably fought her own sparring matches and preformed well, but was completely over shadowed by Nie Li's fights.
Striking Back at Gu Heng Arc
- That night Xiao Yu heard a female voice coming from Nie Li's room and barged in only to find him in a rather ambiguous position. He was strung up in the air with and a strange unknown woman asked if she had served him well. Xiao Yu was now further convinced of his shameless nature and angrily stormed out while mentioning his relationship with Long Yuyin.
- Xiao Yu was also headed out with Nie Li, Lu Piao, Gu Bei, Li Xingyun, and about three thousand of their troops to capture his Deity's Lakes and steal their Deity Roots.
- After easily ambushing the few hundred members of the Blood Moon League guarding Gu Heng's Heiyun Deity’s Lake, Nie Li extracted the Deity Root. They then headed to his Guyu Deity’s Lake and did the same. It wasn't until they reached the final Lightning Deity’s Lake that they ran into some difficulty. However, Nie Li was not worried about losses, as long as he extracted the Deity Root then they will have won.
- Despite the fact that she was still angry at him for what she saw the previous night, Xiao Yu stayed by Nie Li's side to help protect him during the battle. After Gu Heng arrived, he focused his attacks and troops on trying to kill Nie Li. At one point he was completely surrounded by Heavenly Axis Realm experts and was about to be killed, but Xiao Yu suddenly grabbed Nie Li and activated her Time-Space Artifact ring.
Visiting the Void Illusionary Divine Palace Arc
- The time space ring has been with her since her birth and is the only hint to her origins. When they reappeared, Xiao Yu and Nie Li found themselves in an isolated valley somewhere in the outside world. Xiao Yu was seriously wounded, but refused Nie Li's attempts to heal her. Since she was embarrassed and wished to still conceal the fact that she is actually female, she asked Nie Li to kill her so she can reform back in the Soul Hall. Despite her wishes, Nie Li decided to heal her anyways, and sealed her meridians so that she couldn't move or protest. After applying an ointment, Nie Li injected his Heavenly Energy into Xiao Yu, slowly healing the injuries that covered all over her body. She was completely embarrassed, but could do nothing to stop him.
- When Nie Li placed his hand on the inscription pattern tattooed on her chest he suddenly seemed to lose consciousness and sat their for two hours. After awhile the seal on her meridians wore off and she promptly smacked Nie Li and asked him to pretend that this never happened. Nie Li then grabbed and closely held Xiao Yu in order to hide from some powerful demon beasts, making Xiao Yu even more uncomfortable.
- To their surprise, they are quickly found by a young demon beast named Wu Yazi. Because he is far stronger then them, he does not see them as a threat and does not bother killing them. Instead he is curious if they were also there for the Void Illusionary Divine Palace.
- Since Xiao Yu knows that they can not possible survive if Wu Yazi decides to kill them, she lets Nie Li do the talking and just follows along. Even though he is powerful, Wu Yazi proves himself to be rather simple minded and easily manipulated by Nie Li. After showing off his knowledge of treasures by identifying Wu Yazi's Scarlet Mist Rock, Nie Li was able to convince him that he could open the Thousand Illusionary Array protecting the Void Illusionary Divine Palace's treasures.
- Nie Li then told him that they would only go if he did the Demon Blood Sacrifice with them, so that they could fool others into thinking they are also demon beasts. After awhile, Wu Yazi agreed and they completed the Sacrifice, though Xiao Yu could tell that there was more to it then what Nie li had said.
Xiao Yu's Cultivation:
- Afterward she activated the blood and let it flow through her body to change physical appearance and aura to that of a Divine Blooded Raccoon. Since Nie Li used his free time to cultivate, Xiao Yu took the hint that she should has well.
- When they reached outside the barrier, Xiao Yu recognized a group of thirty or so Heavenly Axis Realm experts as Long Tianming and his people. Nie Li surprised her by purposely provoking a conflict between Wu Yazi and them. Though she didn't understand what Nie Li had against Long Tianming she trusted his judgment and watched as Wu Yazi violently killed nine of them.
- After Long Tianming himself came forward to stop the battle, Wu Yazi's demanded that they leave. However, Long Tianming surprisingly backed down and moved a short distance away. When Nie Li found the entrance and they started to enter the barrier, Long Tianming and his men moved to follow them. Once inside, Nie Li kept them from getting disoriented and allow Wu Yazi to use the Thousand Illusionary Array to make hit and run attacks.
- Though he was able to kill all of Long Tianming's men this way, he could not kill him as he is a 9 Heavenly Axis Realm expert. Wu Yazi was also able to detect some demon beast aura from him, making him think that Long Tianming has also completed something similar to the Demon Blood Sacrifice. Nie Li also made a point of warning Xiao Yu to keep her distance from Long Tianming, though he wouldn't explain why she especially should be wary of him, she still agreed.
- Nie Li then lead Wu Yazi and Xiao Yu to the center of the Thousand Illusionary Array and the entrance to the Void Illusionary Divine Palace's outer hall. After braking the outer array and leading them through the inner barrier, they were immediately attacked by powerful Dao of Dragon rank Thunder Beasts. However, Nie Li proved them only to be extremely realistic illusions. This lead Xiao Yu to further realize how knowledgeable Nie Li was and closely follow his directions.
- After entering a side room, Nie Li warned them about the Celestial Bound Array, he then directed Wu Yazi and Xiao Yu on how to safely walk to the treasure chests. Even though Wu Yazi's chest held a Heavenly Axis Realm puppet, Xiao Yu trusted Nie Li's decisions and followed his directions. In the end, Nie Li and her received many treasures while Wu Yazi only got puppets and a small amount of items. It was obvious that Nie Li was doing it on purpose. After all was said and done, she received dozens of gold spiritual essences, a Grade 7 armour set, as well as several other treasures like Divine Scarlet Bloodstones. She gives all of her items to Nie Li for safe keeping.
- After closing the chests back up, they move on to find many more small treasures in the surrounding halls. Then, after studying the layout for a bit, Nie Li directs them through the door to the main hall, the life gate.
Through the Life Gate Arc
- The long, dark, corridor to the main hall, was infested with Heavenly Star or stronger Blackwater Venom Spiders. Xiao Yu watched while Wu Yazi was occupied with fighting the endless spiders and Nie Li started used a mysterious green pearl to attack the spiders with a frightening poison. She was also surprised when he broke through to 8 Fate. His cultivation rate has been beyond anything she thought possible.
- Inside the hall was a crystal jade wall with a mysterious and powerful cultivation technique inscribed on it. Among the hundred or so experts cultivation around the wall was another demon beast from the Demon God Sect, Zhen Yuan. Xiao Yu sat down and listened as he told Wu Yazi what he had discovered about the technique and how his cultivation had grown so fast.
Xiao Yu's Cultivation:
- After watching Nie Li and the Demon Lord both enter the jade wall, Xiao Yu focused on cultivating. She was depressed as she felt that she would be left behind by Nie Li. Xiao Yu has always been aware of two auras inside herself, protecting her. Whenever she suffered a setback or encountered a difficulty in her cultivation, they would always appear to her aid. She was very curious about them and if they are connected to her origins. At this moment they rushed into her soul realm and activated the Demon Blood Sacrifice, causing her cultivation to surge. She rapidly formed a Fate Star and reached Heavenly Star Realm.
- The auras also rushed to her eyes and allowed her to comprehend the inscription patterns of the jade wall. She then shared the method of entering the wall with Wu Yazi by transmitting it directly into his mind.
Void Illusionary Divine Palace's Consciousness:
- Wu Yazi is inside the main hall when the Void Illusionary Divine Palace's Consciousness seals all the exits and declares that only the six people with the most Ganges Crystals will be allowed to distribute the treasures amongst themselves and leave the palace alive. After the jade wall crumbles Wu Yazi and Xiao Yu found Nie Li in the depths of the main hall and warned him that hundreds of experts are headed this way. Nie Li had them stand out of the way in a corner as the room erupted in chaos over the Ganges Crystals the appeared form nothing.
Li Huo, Yan Yang, and Venerable Godthunder:
- When Li Huo arrives with his men he orders them to kill everyone. However Wu Yazi reveals his Demon Gods Sect badge, sparing him, Nie Li, and Xiao Yu. Yan Yang then arrives with his own force the battle intensifies. Both of them refuse to back down, however they are almost evenly matched and neither can gain a clear advantage over the other. With the arrival of Venerable Godthunder from the Pentastrike Demon Sect, Li Huo and Yan Yang both back off, forming an uneasy three way balance of power.
- After the Void Illusionary Divine Palace's Consciousness attacks with killing intent and tries to make them leave the room, they only become more curious about the array. Nie Li then takes the chance and steps forward to unlock the array and open the passage to the treasure room.
- Nie Li secretly tells Xiao Yu that the situation is dangerous and she should escape if the opportunity appears, however she insists and staying with him. After Venerable Godthunder, Yan Yang, and Li Huo send equal groups of ten people down the passage until all the traps are disabled and the treasure room is found, she follows behind with Nie Li into the passageway.
- After reaching the vast cavern and seeing the mysterious array protecting the treasure, Nie Li told them that he could break through it given a few months. They then agreed to send their people into the array while Nie Li worked on breaking it. Wu Yazi pointed out that the array doesn't kill and only traps people in an illusion, so they sent everyone in, including him and Xiao Yu. They easily got trapped in the array, but managed to stick together until Xiao Yu was suddenly grabbed by Nie Li.
- She followed him through the array to the treasure in the center and collected more than three hundred gold spiritual stone essences, five hundred over Grade 6 artifacts, and over thirty Grade 7 artifacts. When a Martial Ancestor Realm expert (Hierarch Blacknether) suddenly arrived, Nie Li had her enter the Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting to hide.
Cultivating in the Myriad Miles Rivers and Mountains Painting Arc
Nie Li and Xiao Yu's Cultivation:
- While hiding within the painting, Xiao Yu focused on her cultivation. After Nie Li also entered the painting, she was startled at his quick advancement as he jumped from the peak of the Heavenly Fate Realm to the peak of the Heavenly Star Realm in only a few minutes. He brushed off her worry, and only told her that he had entered a miraculous state for a moment. Even after Nie Li left the painting and returned to the Divine Feathers Sect, Xiao Yu decided to stay within the painting and continued to focus on her cultivation.
Becoming the Sect Master Arc
Xiao Yu's Cultivation:
- Xiao Yu most likely stayed inside the painting for the next six months or so and steadily advanced her cultivation along with Yu Yan, Jindan, and the Sky Origin Divine Clan members. With the aid of Nie Li's Divine Elixirs, her cultivation has most likely reached a level that the Sage Emperor might detect her if she left the painting.
