    Wang addresses Wei Dan respectfully. "Mistress, do you know this mastermind Tien?"

    While each of the warriors inside the weapon master’s house were talking, Ban Lu’s staff began to glow.
    Each of you (with the exception of Ban Lu, who knew exactly what was going to happen) felt this in your minds, a strange chi emanating from Ban Lu, something you had never felt before. In a flash of a green stone in the holyman’s staff, the spirit of an old man, in similar robes manifested before the priest.
    “Greetings again my student. I see you have accomplished your task. I am very proud of you.” Kin Wu spoke to Ban Lu.

    "By the Jade Emperor's dangling bo... uh, belt pouch! What is that?" Leng exclaims, leaping into a defensive crouch.

    Koryo instantly moves his hands to the swords, but does not unsheate them. As surprising as it is, the manifestation doesn't seem hostile or dangerous. He had heard stories about grand masters being able to project their chi outside of their bodies, some said, even at great distances. Truly fascinating. The hands, however, stay on the grips.

    Kaoru

    Kaoru privately apologized for the damage the brothers had done to her home, and offered to help with the clean up whenever that got started. Meanwhile, Kaoru stayed close to Master Jiem, ready to help when called. Otherwise, the young man was staring intently at one particular weapon on the wall, his mind elsewhere.

    Shen sits in the corner of the room, his back placed firmly against the wall. He couldn't stand to watch what was going on.

    Koryo

    Now that you can watch Master Jiem more closely and more calmly, you notice something odd about him. You could swear you've seen his face, but in another body, or in another time in your life. As you wondered that, you experience a Memory Flashback.
    Flashback

    You stood proudly, young, and full of expectations. Your friend Daejo was there, blinking an eye at you. At your right, and at Daejo's left, there were another dozen men, dressed in the black robes of the Black Veil. Walking along the line, examining each of you, two of the four Imperial Brothers were approaching your position.
    Lu Ian Tien and Lu Ian Sin. One was the master strategist at the service of the emperor, and the other was his personal bodyguard, a true martial master.
    The great moment. The two figures stood before you.
    "Do you swear to serve the Emperor and the people of The Great Empire?" asked Mastermind Tien. His severe eyes were hard to stare at, but you manage to tell your speech, and hold his glance while you did so. Those eyes...


    You were certain now, that man, that "Master Jiem" is Lu Ian Tien

    Koryo seems to suddenly snap out of a suspended state of mind, and he finds himself staring at Master Jiem, unable to close his mouth for the surprise. He kneels beside the old man: Master Lu Ian Tien!!

    Wang's eyes widen for a moment, but then he smiles. "One question answered, my friends. Now to solve the problem of this wandering spirit..."

    Little History quote that everyone should know about, just in case
    Empire History


    “Since history is written with ink, there were four nations, which fought each other, for the control of the huge land they shared. Countless skirmishes, countless battles, but no obvious winner.
    Peace was nowhere to be found, until a hero rouse among the common people. His use of the jian, and his straight and clear mind, his focus in battle and his honorable behavior lead him to the throne of his nation.
    Hear his name my students, he was Lu Ian Su, a wise ruler, a great strategist and also, a great warrior. Through smart political moves, he convinced three of the nations to join and create the Great Empire. But the forth nation, the people of the north, brave and proud, didn’t hear reasons; most of them were hunters and nomads, lead by a ferocious ruler, To Mi Fan, the Horse. Lu Ian Su was forced to bring war to the north tribesman. The war extended more than he had thought, because, even in technological disadvantage, and outnumbered, the north people fought for their culture and independence.
    But after 10 years of conflict, with their leader fallen in battle, the north people surrendered, and there was peace for the first time in history.
    The rule of Tenacious Su lasted many years, full of prosperity and peace. Only the heavens could break the harmony of the new empire.
    Some said it was because of the Emperors vanity, or because of his limitless proud, but the heavens were certainly angry with Tenacious Su, and sent The Great Drought to struck the empire. The crops started to wither, the cattle to starve. Eventually, the people starve to death. All that Tenacious Su had built started to crumble and fall apart in his hands. The peasant’s corpses started to pile outside the cities, the land devastated by the drought, converted into an endless wasteland, where no crop could grow.
    Consternated by the situation of his empire, the old Tenacious Su died of a mysterious illness, and his elder son ascended to the throne. Some people think he was poisoned, or even killed by his son, Lu Ian Li, Sagacious Li, the elder of his sons, the actual emperor, who had the political strength of his father.
    Tenacious Su had three more children: Lu Ian Tien, Mastermind Tien, the general of the imperial forces, who had the strategist mind of his father; Lu Ian Sin, Sin Dancing Swords, commander of the elite guard of the emperor, who heir the physical strength and martial arts of his father; and Lu Ian To, Glorious To, High priest of the monastic Order of the Yellow Veil.
    Emperor Li had one great deal of troubles when he took the crown from his dying father. The empire was at the edge of chaos and anarchy, and worst of all, there was no enemy to blame for it, only the merciless will of some forgotten god.
    No one knows exactly how, but after a strange military campaign to the northern wastes, the old homeland of the nomads, the drought was over. The sages predicted 4 more years of drought, but Sagacious Li ended it in just 6 months.
    Some vague tales of this campaign were, eventually, told. Bards sing about the great deeds of the Emperor and his three brothers, who ventured into the wild north, and fought monsters and evil creatures, opening they way to the temple of the Unnamed god. This terrible entity, summoned dire creatures, which killed most of the emperor forces. Mastermind Tien, and Glorious To were murdered in the battlefield, fighting to save their Emperor.
    Sagacious Li prevailed after the Epic Battle, and destroyed the temple for good. It is told that once the temple was destroyed, the waters came back, the rivers ran and the rain fell. In few months, prosperity and balance were restored, bringing the empire to a new golden age
