For many years he traveled the world, filling the consciousness of people with his faith, but at the same time filling their souls with fear and sowing horror around him. He was all feared and hated. As a result, the earthly life of the Master ended with the fact that one of his close comrades betrayed him and gave him to the mercy of the clan, who had long wanted to get rid of him …
It takes 13 long years. One day, one of the spellcasters, expelled by his own clan, calls upon Wei Wuxian from from another world, offering his own body to his soul. Instead, he asks to fulfill the request – to avenge his family for the fact that they turned away from the unfortunate. The sacrificial ritual to reincarnate souls was successful, but then something went wrong …
Now Wei Wuxian travels around the world again, but with a more serious mission. On the evil fate of fate, his once-worst enemy, who betrayed him many years ago, became his ally.
Wei Wuxian now have to go through a lot of scrapes in the company with an enemy … So why should such a close partnership of two people lead? Will the Great Teacher be able to find answers to his most important question? ..
- Wei Wuxian – the main character. Once upon a time he was a spellcaster who showed great promise. But in the end, fate pushed him on a crooked path, because of which he became a follower of darkness and got the nickname “Elder Lee”, which scared the fear and horror at all. He rose from the dead 13 years after several clans joined together for a brutal massacre of him.
- Lan Wangji – the second protagonist of Manhua. A very secretive person, comes from an ancient, famous kind of spellcasters. He is the beloved of Wei Wuxian, although in the past they have had very difficult, complicated relationships that turn into enmity.
- The series “The Founder of Diabolism” was filmed on Manhua – Chinese comics, derived from the Japanese manga.

In the list of her works are not only the “The Founder of Diabolism”, but also “Tianguan Cifu”, “Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System”. These manhua are widely loved by the public on the Chinese portal weibo, where web comics are published.
