“It is a simple exchange. Chief Zhao Yunlan for the Hallows.”
A year after the war with Ye Zun, there is contention between Haixing and Dixing. In an effort to gain the upper hand against Haixing, a Dixingren is hired to kidnap Zhao Yunlan and exchange him for the Hallows. An exchange that the SID cannot and will not make.
Zhao Yunlan brings a Dixingren into the SID for questioning. It goes poorly.
