Appearance

After the Destruction of Ruism, Daozi appeared as a scholar with disheveled hair and incomplete clothing, and only one of the shoes he had been wearing was left. He also had a foolish smile on his face.[2]

After the Collapse of the Heavenly Way, Daozi’s appearance changed back to a handsome scholar.[1]

Personality

Cultivation

Ninth Stage Tribulation Immortal

Daozi is a powerful Tribulation Immortal since he managed to survive when the majority of the Thirteen Tribulation Immortals perished in the battles against the Nine Serenities.

Eternal Life Being

During the first meeting of the Heavenly Way Must Step Down Alliance, Daozi has trod his Way and became an Eternal Life Being.[3]

The exact time he became one is unknown. Although Daozi still didn’t have the moon wheel halo when he borrowed a Ruism sutra from Song Shuhang while the later was at the Beast Realm,[4] Shuhang speculated that Daozi already tread his Way of Eternal Life by then.[5]

Heavenly Way Must Step Down Alliance

Daozi joined the Heavenly Way Must Step Down Alliance with the goal to be the next Heavenly Way and rectifies his teacher, Ruism Holy Man’s name.[3][6]

As a member of the alliance, Daozi participated in many covert operations to sabotage the ‘Current Heaven’ plans to patch up itself. The Battle of Ruism was one of the operations he joined.

After the Collapse of the Heavenly Way, Daozi no longer interested to be the next Heavenly Way in favour of Tyrant Song, who was believed as the reincarnation of the really amazing Ruism Holy Man by the practitioners of All Heavens and Myriad Realms and Demons of the Nine Serenities in general, and specifically by the disciples of Ruism.[6]

Battle of Ruism

Daozi fought in the Battle of Ruism against the forces of the Ancient Heavenly Court.

Becoming the 8.5th Heavenly Way

Cheng Lin and Blockhead Song proposed Daozi become the caretaker Heavenly Way, the 8.5th-generation Heavenly Way[6]

As the 8.5th-generation Heavenly Way, Daozi’s jurisdiction and imperishable were severely limited. He can only exercise his jurisdiction before the Ninth Heavenly Way took office. Once the Ninth Heavenly Way proved the Way, Daozi will leave the office independently.[7]

Changing the Fate Against the Heaven

Thirteen Tribulation Immortals

After Daozi successfully became the 8.5th-generation Heavenly Way, the first action he took was to resurrect the rest of the Thirteen Tribulation Immortals.[8]

Resurrection of the Clear Water Pavilion

Pavilion Lord Chu Qiongqiong wanted to personally see the 8.5th-generation Heavenly Way, Daozi regarding the resurrection of the Clear Water Pavilion. However, Song Shuhang offered to go in her stead, since even Eternal Life Beings will fall into dormancy due to the imperishable information.[9]

Moreover, there was no friendship between Pavilion Lord Chu and Daozi, so the latter may not entertain her. Song Shuhang has a good relationship with Daozi, so the Heavenly Way will at least give him face and answer his question.[9]

Daozi then informed Shuhang that it was impossible for the former to resurrect the members of the Clear Water Pavilion. This was due too much time has passed since their death. Moreover, they don’t have any resurrection array or the likes prepared for them beforehand.[10]

Daozi speculated that when a Heavenly Way successfully transcending from the Heavenly Way, the members of the Clear Water Pavilion may be resurrected. If someone truly transcending the time and space, can intercept the members of the Clear Water Pavilion from the river of time, and let them resurrect.[10]

Meeting the Black Sun

In order to shield Tyrant Song’s movement, Daozi blocked the Heavenly Mystery in All Heavens and Myriad Realms.

Leaving Office

Daozi was fully aware that his time as a Heavenly Way was limited. He spent lots of his time preparing Song Shuhang as the next Heavenly Way.

04th February 2020 as the date when he will leave the office.[11]

His retirement came as a surprise to the practitioners of All Heavens and Myriad Realms since it was less than a month since he took office.[12] Moreover, despite being a 0.5 Heavenly Way, Daozi was stable enough to reign for several hundred million years.

Relationships

Ruism

Ruism disciples had tried several times to send people to contact Daozi, but with the state that he was in, they were never able to communicate with him. They had also sent people to follow Daozi, but as he was a powerful expert of Tribulation Immortal Realm, they can only stare whenever Daozi used his Gate of Space to run away.[13]

Just like the rest of the Thirteen Tribulation Immortals, he is addressed as ‘founder’ or ‘ancestor’ by Ruism disciples.

After his really amazing master, Daozi technically has the highest seniority in Ruism.

Daozi have a high opinion on Shuhang since the latter had helped Ruism many times in their darkest hours such during the Battle of White Cloud Academy and Battle of Ruism.[14]

During the Battle of Ruism, for Shuhang’s help, Daozi has promised to teach him Eternal Life Being level’s battle skills.[14]

It doesn’t matter whether Tyrant Song is the reincarnation of my master or not. The more important thing is what All Heavens and Myriad Realms think of him.
