Xu Changqing & Zixuan
Xu Changqing and Zixuan’s romantic relationship is the main backstory to Chinese Paladin III. Their love endured for three lifetimes, lasting approximately 200 years. Destined to become an immortal, Xu Changqing dedicated his life to studying Taoism and becoming a Taoist priest in all three lifetimes. However, in his first two lifetimes as Gu Liufang and Lin Yeping, he failed because of his choice to resume secular life and be together with Zixuan. He was mortal, a human, whereas Zixuan was the descendant of the goddess Nuwa. As Nuwa’s descendant, Zi Xuan is immortal and able to retain her youthful looks. For all three lifetimes, her passionate and undying love for Changqing never wavered; and although Liu Fang had been reincarnated as Lin Yeping and Xu Changqing, his love for Zi Xuan never changed and he was still able to maintain his strong feelings for her. In Changqing’s third and last lifetime, Zixuan gains the courage to sever all ties with him and let him go, so that he can train properly as a priest to attain enlightenment and be forever freed from mortal sufferings.
