ZEN : The Return



Storyline

ZEN is the child of Zhi Jun, the Commander of the Hongwu Troupe. Having great expertise in the martial arts, Commander Zhi Jun was responsible for protecting the safety of the Sunyao Emperor.

The story begins from an ordinary training day for ZEN. ZEN was training very hard, hoping that one day he would be as powerful as his father. Zhi Zun assigned his trusty assistant, Suha, to train ZEN.

After a long period of training, ZEN returned home thinking that his skills had improved significantly. However, he could not find any signs of Suha nor the Commander at home. At that instant moment of his panic, Suha appeared with serious injuries.

Suha did not tell ZEN what had happened but asked him to hide immediately, but all ZEN could think about was his father and rushed out to look for him. Once outside, he discovered that the Palace was in total chaos. Suddenly, he heard sounds of a huge fight in the distance, and ran toward the source, thinking that his father would be there.

Upon reaching the scene of combat, ZEN saw his father fighting a figure that looked like the Emperor. The Emperor seemed like he was being controlled by an unknown dark force. Realizing that Commander Zhi Jun was too powerful for him, the Emperor thought that ZEN would be a better target instead. Seeing that his son’s life was in danger, Zhi Jun used himself to shield ZEN from the Emperor’s attack.

Commander Zhi Jun was severely injured from the attack and could not continue with the battle. Sensing that his son was in a grave situation, Zhi Jun ordered Suha to escape with ZEN. Knowing that ZEN was unwilling to leave without his father, Suha had to lie to ZEN saying that the Commander will join them later.

When they reached the boat, Suha confessed to ZEN that his father had died during the battle and tasked her to give a chest to ZEN. Suha said that within the chest, ZEN will be able to obtain the power needed for revenge and that it was up to him to keep it safe.

As the boat sailed away, they encountered a horrible storm in the sea and the boat almost sunk. Luckily, they ran into Kyrin and she rescued ZEN and Suha.

Surviving the fate of death on the sea, ZEN’s journey to avenge his father’s death begins….
