* SupportingProtagonist: In Yu Qian's quest in ''Caravans'', he's ostensibly a monk on the quest to get a book of holy sutras back to Chang'an, and Su Min is a monk from a more martial order assigned to support and guard him, as well as (seemingly) a test of his VowOfCelibacy. [[spoiler: Actually, the misogynistic Yu Qian is Su Min's final test on the road to Nirvana, and her death in the FinalBattle and subsequent return to battle Mara is the culmination of ''her'' story. Of course, discovering this fact is still a priceless lesson for Yu Qian's own CharacterDevelopment.]]
