"A saintly women from the east... who defends the weak and vanquishes the wicked.”
In a distant eastern kingdom stood a towering castle named Kirin. One fateful day, the castle’s walls were engulfed by fauna. The noble families discussed this in passing. but then, a shadow eclipsed the moon, and light illuminated a patch of the nearby forest. Meanwhile, a delicate fragrance wafted out from the forest, surrounding and swirling around the castle. Seeing these occurrences as an omen, the kingdom’s noble families started to discuss their nation’s possible fortunes.
During the discussions, a well-reputed scholars declared, “This is the fragrance of an orchid. The noble scent is like having a beloved orchid in the room. Even though 6 days have passed, this fragrance hasn’t vanished from the nearby village. Isn’t this an omen worth a thousand pieces of gold?”
Hearing these words, the King ordered his soldiers to find the fragrance’s source without harming it.
The soldiers searched across several paths, until they discovered an enormous orchid.
The lush fragrance did not disappear after several days. Rumors spread that the baby was a descendent of the orchids, meant to be a blessing for the kingdom. The kingdom’s people rejoiced and even the King, known for his cruelty, vowed to raise the baby as a protector of the kingdom.
The child displayed extraordinary potential, and many of the kingdom's martial artists wished to teach her. However, the King prevented her from receiving lessons in the martial arts.
Instead, she was taught to perform ceremonial sword dances and religious rites. While she performed these with grace and beauty, she was still unable to learn the martial arts. Nevertheless, she was able to strengthen her mind under the tutelage of many great scholars.
As the years went by, the child reached the age of 16, and soon she began to dispense advice regarding the kingdom’s future. Her goal was to put the kingdom back on the right path after many years of rule by the cruel King. The peasants came to love her for her deeds However, as she shone brighter, a dark shadow was cast on the other side. A treacherous man, who rose to his position as an advisor through wicked intrigue and brown-nosing.
The treacherous advisor whispered to the King, “I have always been a loyal subject of the kingdom. But this wildflower, who you raised in pity, now tries to usurp your authority by giving poisonous advice. Isn’t this an act of betrayal?”
Sometime later, the treacherous advisor told the King, “That woman has a snake’s tongue that she is using to confuse the people, so that she may take your throne. You can silence her by ordering her to capture the impregnable enemy castle. If you were to put that Yeong Reung-Hyang alongside her with the vanguard, then wouldn’t all the sparks of the rebellion be extinguished? If you do this, then all your worries will disappear.”
The Kingdom had tried for many years to topple that impregnable castle.
After marching for 6 days, there was still no sign of support.
Eventually, they arrived in a vast field of reeds that swayed in the wind like the waves of the ocean. Then the vanguard turned their weapons upon Yeung Reung-Hyang and his allies.
Only then did Yeong Reung-Hyang realize that this had been a trap.
Yeung Reung-Hyang was ready to accept death as a hundred men rushed towards him.
Yeung Reung-Hyang leaned heavily on his sword. As he struggled to breathe he rasped, “Leave this place and go west. If you were to return to the Kingdom, there would only be meaningless bloodshed. If you keep growing stronger, then maybe you can return home one day?”
“What are you so sad about? My spirit will never leave you, so don’t be afraid.”
With those final words, Yeong Reung-Hyang closed his eyes in her arms. She performed the religious rites she had learned as a child, but it didn’t feel right. After burying him, the guilt she felt prevented her from leaving his grave.
She made a vow.
To travel the world and return once she had obtained the power she needed.
