    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.

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.

  • Antagonistic Offspring: To the late King Trioculus, although based on Namuh's narrative it seemed that the old king Didn't See That Coming.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: While played straight by most of the Opus Diaboli generals, Hippu notably averts this trope, having shown that he possessed no more fighting skill than the average mook; a point that Masaecha brings up, much to his disgust as he comments on the young king's bladework as being "a disgrace to the legendary swordplay skills of the Trioculus people".

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

Big Bad


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?
  • 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 Cliffhanger 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.
