After being injured, Ziyu starts to use Jingzhou, the shadow he’s trained since childhood, in the court and on the battlefield. Meanwhile, Pei Liang, the king of Pei and Ziyu scheme against each other. Jingzhou, as the shadow, struggles to survive the power games of the nobles, going through all kinds of difficulties and struggles.
