    TCZ Main - Eastern Scions 

Xing Ling

A scion of the Righteous Way, The Bandit of Bandits

Overview: One of the flagship heroines of the TCZ franchise, Xing Ling's story began in the first volume of the first series as a self-styled "Bandit of Bandits" who goes around helping the victims of bandits recover what was robbed from them with her awesome martial arts skills. Her life would come to an important turning point after a chance encounter brought her face to face with The Celestial Zone.


  • Action Girl: But of course, we all know it by now!
  • Bad Ass: Oh yes!
    • Badass Normal: Even before developing spiritual powers, she single-handedly defeated a Mook from the Evil Way. Granted, it was a Ghost, the lowest-ranked of Mooks, but as Wang Chan had put it, even the lowliest of goons from the Celestial Zone would make short work of normal (that is, those without spiritual powers) people.
    • Took a Level in Badass: Developed spiritual powers.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Had long hair at her debut in TCZ I, but her first major battle saw her getting a Close-Call Haircut, hence giving her the hairstyle that she would keep for the rest of the first series.
  • Break the Cutie: Volume 4 of TCZ I, where Xing Ling had to fight for her very life while being hopelessly outclassed, and spending a good part of the volume nursing a broken arm and an inability to call out for help due to a throat injury, the combined feeling of helplessness and her injuries nearly tipped her past her breaking point. Thankfully she's a tough one to say the least, and she gets better.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Remember when Wang Chan told Xue Wu that he sensed something special about Xing Ling? He was right. She later Took a Level in Badass - more like twenty levels in badass, to become one of The Celestial Zone's top scions, right up there with Chi Xue.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Her "Shooting Stars" technique. It proved instrumental in defeating Moon Monarch in the ultimate battle of the first series, and as of TCZ II, she's even combined it with her considerable spiritual powers to create a whole new set of techniques that capitalizes on her Lightning Bruiser status with devastating effect.
  • Classy Cat-Burglar: The Bandit of Bandits, although she's somewhat more altruistic due to her Robin Hood-esque tendencies to return the loot to their rightful owners.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Has been on the giving and receiving end of several curb stomps; some of her notable instances include:
  • David Versus Goliath: Her first few battles with enemy Mooks during her Badass Normal phase count as such.
  • The Ditz: Has shades of this, what with her tendency to get mixed up between left and right at times.
  • Genki Girl
  • Lightning Bruiser: Post-development of spiritual powers, Xing Ling was noted to be one of - if not the - fastest scions in the East. Combined with the fact that she can really pack a punch and you've essentially got this trope running for her.
  • Super Speed: Is stunningly quick even by the standards of The Celestial Zone's top scions.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: Mentions it outright in volume 1 of TCZ I when a bandit surrenders, begging for mercy, to which she reassuringly replies that she never kills. She carries this trait for the entirety of the series. Only the worst of the worst are exempt.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: One of the most triumphant examples of this trope as far as the TCZ franchise is concerned. Strangely though, is that the initial release of the first volume of TCZ I showed her on the cover (which is the only colored portion of the manhua then) with (depending on whether you got the English or Chinese version) dark brown hair for the former and black (with a tint of dark olive) hair on the latter.

Chi Xue

Overview: One of the top scions of The Celestial Zone, Chi Xue strikes fear in the heart of all followers of the Evil Way; with her distinctive red outfit and icy-cold disposition, Chi Xue earned her title of "Destroyer of Evil" due to her merciless approach to slaughtering any and all followers of the Evil Way with absolutely no pity or remorse. However, there's more to her than meets the eye...


Wang Chan

A disciple from Mount Dream Cloud

Overview: One of the top disciples from a leading school in the Righteous Way, Wang Chan was introduced early in the story as one of the main characters alongside his senior Xue Wu, whom he looks up to as a big brother figure despite the two of them being unrelated by blood. Is shown to be exceptionally talented, wise and knowledgeable for his age, and seems to be extremely knowledgeable about the going-ons in the Celestial Zone.



    TCZ Main - Denizens of Mazakala 

Hippu of Trioculus

King of the Trioculus

Overview: The king and leader of the Trioculus people, Hippu succeeded the throne following the late king's untimely demise, and forged an alliance between the Trioculus and Diabolus as part of the Opus Diaboli. Namuh thinks little of King Hippu however, seeing him as little more than a pretender. Part of the reason was due to him viewing his father, the late King Trioculus as a Worthy Opponent, and felt cheated out of an honorable Duel to the Death when Hippu murdered his own father to claim the throne for himself. Stil, he admits that the Trioculus army had their uses, and for the time being tolerates their alliance.



Namuh of Diabolus

King of the Diabolus, former leader of the Opus Diaboli

Overview: King of the Diabolus tribe, and leader of the alliance known as the Opus Diaboli, Namuh plays the role of the primary antagonist of TCZ-X for much of the series.



    TCZ 21 Characters 

Tai Yi Dao

Overview: A seemingly harmless and innocuous young man who appeared to be highly knowledgeable and profoundly Wise Beyond His Years, despite being shrouded in mystery he quickly endears himself to most of the cast. Little do they know however, is that he is in fact the leader of the primary antagonist faction in the story, the renegade Espers known as Hermes Corps


Lavender

Protagonist, Scion of ESP

Overview: One of the first of the protagonists to be introduced to the story, Lavender was sent to Singapore on a mission by her mysterious Eccentric Mentor WTB in search of the Scion who possesses the legendary White Potential.


  • Action Girl: She's a Wee Tian Beng created heroine, what do you expect?
  • Bad Ass: For the first one-third of the series she's shown to have little to no difficulty handling whatever opposition stands in her way.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted. Got blackmailed by Alice into letting her carve a mark into her face, although the first time around Alice only but managed to make a cut before Kamiya intervened. In what might be a moment of crossing the Moral Event Horizon by Alice, she returns to finish the job after Lavender was rendered immobile by a more potent time stopper than herself.
  • Break the Cutie: See the spoilered trope above.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Has lilac eyes that match her hair.
  • Expy: Of Xing Ling. (See TCZ I, II and X)
  • Genki Girl: Almost to the point that she seems like Xing Ling's Spiritual Successor.
  • Otaku: Loves manga and Cosplay.
  • Time Stands Still: Her main power set basically allows her to freeze time.
  • The Worf Effect: Wee Tian Beng appears to be fond of zig-zagging this trope for Lavender for the first half or so of the series by having Lavender appear to struggle against a newly-introduced antagonist, then inverts the trope by revealing it as a bluff on her part to get them to reveal their openings.
    • Vol. 4 features a Cliff Hanger Ending that introduced Snap Assault Peter who promptly introduces Lavender to the ground via an energy blast equivalent of a "Hey, You!" Haymaker. The next volume reveals that Lavender pretty much did a No Sell on Peter's attack.
    • Vol. 7 had Explosive Blast make his debut by taking a Worf Barrage of Lavender's best hits, then boasting that even if she stopped time she would have no way of defeating him because he can take whatever she can throw at him. Lavender proceeds to go for his eyes and kick him into a river.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has a head of purple hair, though it remains to be seen whether her hair color is the result of dyes or natural.
