The story is about Yang Jian's journey from a young man to savior of the three realms tasked with the investiture of the gods. During the Shang Dynasty, demons wreak havoc and the people live in fear. A young man named Yang Jian (Luo Jin) encounters a fox demon, which triggers his third eye, starting him on a path to becoming a hero. Xiao E (Wang Li Kun) enters the palace for the sake of her loved ones yet the fox demon takes advantage of her beauty and position to commit horrifying atrocities through the hands of the king. The Heavenly Senior sends three of his disciples Jiang Zi Ya, Shen Gong Bao and Yu Ding Zhen Ren to help but Shen Gong Bao turns on Jiang Zi Ya out of jealousy while Yu Ding Zhen Ren becomes a teacher to Yang Jian to help him achieve immortality.
