From the Book of Miao Elders


Background:
Jiuxun's Mutter
My name is Gu Jiuxun. I’ve lived for 5844 days. All those days were just the preparation for today.
In our village, people believed that three Hun and seven Po made a person complete. If one had been invaded by Evil Gu, he would gradually lose all the seven Po and became a horrible Spirit Loser. Once all seven Po had been consumed, a new Malicious Ghost was born. And it meant new disasters. Luckily, Gu Ladies, including mom, had ways to purify the poor souls
My mom, Wang Anru, was the last Gu Lady in the village. But she was missing ten years ago all of a sudden. For the past ten years, villagers lived without the protection of Gu Lady. On the land, people suffered a lot from plague and ghosts.
My sister Gu Jiuyue and I never stopped missing mom. From when I could remember things, villagers always looked at us with a mixed emotion. It was anger, fear, pity and hatred… until today, my birthday, my 16th birthday.
I would take the place my mother had left for me… I would become the new Gu Lady… to protect… yes, protect, these, villagers.
Everything required for the ritual had been well prepared long time ago, but no one had expected Viper Gu, one of the Spirit Channeling Gu materials, played dead and sought a chance to escape from the ritual. To help me catch it, Jiuyue rashly headed to General’s Grave, the forbidden site of the clan.
There was no time for me and grandpa Wang Shengli to think carefully. We just followed Jiuyue to enter the General’s Grave and watched something really, really horrible. A giant insect leg quickly stretched out and pulled Jiuyue into the Grave!
Oh my! Sister… Jiuyue!!!
No! If misfortunes must happen, I’d like to take it myself without getting you involved!
Grandpa worried about Jiuyue so much, he rushed into the grave. Though he was once the hunter leader in the clan, a trap triggered once he entered the grave.
Grandpa, Jiuyue. Hold on! I'll get you out! I'll save everyone! Because, because I'm the fated -
Gu Lady!
