In 7th century China, the Tang Dynasty is in decline. The Imperial Court seeks to protect itself by establishing garrisons at the frontiers of its empire. Two centuries later, the militarized provinces waver
in their loyalty to the Court. Some move to distance themselves from the Emperor's control. At that time, Weibo asserts itself as the strongest of those provinces.
... Since then, the Court is the Court and Weibo is Weibo. The Princess implemented that decisive break. When her son Tian Ji'an came of age, she divided two matching jades: One to her son, one to you. She wished the two of you to maintain the imperial edict. To be resolute in preserving the peace between the Imperial Court and Weibo.
The King of Kophen's bluebird failed to sing for three years. One day the Queen remarked: Birds sing only to their own kind, set the bird before a mirror! The King heeded her advice. The bluebird saw its own image, it sang of its sadness, it danced, until it expired.
Princess Jiacheng taught me the zither. She told me a story about a bluebird's dance. She herself was the bluebird. She left the Court for Weibo all by herself. There was no one like her in Weibo.
You have mastered the sword but your heart lacks resolve. I shall return you to Weibo to kill your cousin. Tian Ji'an.
The Assassin's mind:
The way of the sword is pitiless. Saintly virtues play no part in it. Your skills are matchless, but your mind is hostage to human sentiments.
