Bai Xiaochun is the main protagonist of A Will Eternal, chinese web novel.


Appearance

At the start of the novel, he was seemingly thin and weak, but had a healthy, fair complexion, and an overall charming appearance. He wore an ordinary green robe that had apparently been washed so many times it was nearly worn through. Something about the way he was dressed, plus the innocent look in his eyes, made him seem exceptionally quick-witted.

During his stay at The Ovens, he gained quite a lot of weight, adopting the same body figure as the "Fatties" of The Ovens. However, he quickly lost weight once he joined the outer Sect.[1]

He grew permanently taller after reaching the mid Celestial realm.

Personality

Bai Xiaochun at first has a cowardly personality, so much so that he put off becoming an Immortal for three years just because he was afraid that the lightning that the incense conjured would strike and kill him. Even though he is a cultivator, he is a pacifist and tries to not fight as much as possible. His main pursuit in life is to live forever.[1] His Fear of death was first sparked when he was a child and witnessed his parents lying sickly on their deathbed, and how he had watched their body's slowly grow colder in death.

Bai Xiaochun also has an obsessive personality; he tries to be a perfectionist. When he was learning the records of spirit creatures and plants, he would devote himself fully to memorize each volume one by one until he could remember everything, before attempting to advance a stage and pick up the next volume. When he concocts medicine he tends to forget about his surroundings, which leads to him not knowing of all the chaos he is causing.

However he has his principles and would rather die than abandon them. When his friends or loved ones are being threatened, he becomes a "steel veined" demon and even resorts to being ruthless towards himself if it means killing his enemies. During his first life or death battle, his companions were in trouble and he went into this type of 'zone' where he din't care for his own life or death, and didn't wake up until he had already killed everyone. After coming back to himself he started regretting his actions and shivering in fear.[2] Later on while they were being pursued by the companions of the people he just killed he chose to become the bait as he was faster and to allow his companions a chance to escape so they could notify the sect. He was so ruthless that in order to kill the last person, Chen Heng, he broke his own left arm just so he could use the broken bone as a knife to stab him in the neck, while also taking a blade to the chest.[3]

He also seems to be very annoying to other people, this could be seen when he decided to leave the village he was at, everyone was celebrating like they avoided a calamity.

He is also very shameless and loves to show off, but usually fails in doing so. This can be seen when he tried to announce that he was Little Turtle and nobody believed him or when he sacrificed his life for his companions and everyone thought he was dead and they held a funeral service for him and he ended up becoming the disciple of the Sect Master of the Spirit Stream Sect, for a period of time he went around the entire sect just so he could hear people call him 'Senior Uncle Bai'.[4] He only stopped when everyone avoided him to the point he would not meet anyone even after walking around all day.

Even as a Patriarch-level expert in the Heavenspan World (with a cultivation base of Nascent Soul, Deva or even Demigod), his shameless ways didn't change and he was still as boastful as before. He would take pride in tricking a Demigod while being a Core Formation junior, being the master of the (second generation) Hell-Emperor while at Nascent Soul, and patting the head of a Quasi-Celestial as a Deva.

Bai Xiaochun is a big pacifist, his dao is the dao of eternal life and he sees no point in fighting others while searching for immortality. Most of the time he will try to intervene and stop a war before it scales. This happened first when the Great Sects in the Downstream region of the Heavenspan Continent decided to wage war against each other. As Xiaochun was a disciple in both Spirit Stream Sect and Blood Stream Sect he didn't want them to fight and was able to stop them in the end. Later these two sects and the other two Great Sects from the Downstream region merged together and became the River-Defying Sect, with Xiaochun as one of the sect's Patriarchs (even though he was just a Foundation Establishment cultivator).

He is the type of person who tends to get used to new environments easily.[5] Bai Xiaochun is also a very quick learner, something that had benefited him a lot in his life. Whenever he encountered someone who was more outstanding than him in some way, he would imitate that facet of their personality or behavior.[6]

Cultivation

Background

Bai Xiochun is from a small village that lay at the base of Mount Hood. Before his parents death they gave him an incense stick. In the past three years before the start of the story Bai Xiaochun lit the incense stick twelve times, but put it out because he was afraid of the lightning the incense conjured while lit. After witnessing his parents' death, Bai Xiaochun started pursuing immortality.

He is the inheritor of the full Undying Live-Forever Technique, thus receiving the title of Arch-Ancestor and ruling over the Arch-Emperor Dynasty of the Heavenspan World. After reaching the Eternal Continent, he joined the Sacred-Emperor Dynasty and later on became the Eternal Continent's Eleventh Celestial, titled Heavenspan King, as the first Celestial from the Heavenspan World.

After leaving the Sacred-Emperor Dynasty he officially created his own faction at the Eternal Continent. This faction became the home of most people that came from Heavenspan World, Heavenspan Continent's people and Wildlands' people alike. This faction was named Arch-Emperor Dynasty, as a reminder of the original name of the Heavenspan World (Arch-Emperor World), with him taking the title of Arch-Emperor.

Using the last remaining Immortal World will's approval, he became an Archaean in the ruined Starry Sky, and the third Archaean of Eternal Continent.

History

Book 1 I'm Bai Xiaochun

Bai Xiaochun decided to leave the village to become an Immortal. He made his way to Mount Hood to light the incense stick his parents left him to summon the Immortal. There he meet up with Li Qinghou, who brought him to Spirit Stream Sect and arranged for him to work in The Ovens. [1]

Initially disgruntled at having to be a cook for the sect, Bai Xiaochun was quickly convinced of the situation being otherwise. Every member of the Ovens traditionally carried around a wok with them, and he was instructed to do so as well. On heading to the storage room, Bai Xiaochun picked up the Mysterious Turtle Wok. Taught by his senior brother Fatties, he quickly learned how to embezzle resources meant for the Inner Sect, using these to cultivate. He himself suggested some opinions, which was even added to their Code.

Bai Xiaochun found out that he can use his mysterious turtle wok to do spirit enhancement. However it needed colored-flames, one more color for each additional upgrade. During the second enhancement of his wooden sword, as if angering the heavens, thunders were rumbling in rage but it was soon gone when the enhancement was done. However the wok sucked lifespans out of Bai Xiaochun that scared him out of his mind.

Due to his obsession toward his longevity he had come up with countless ideas on how to restore the lost longevity but still failed until he notices a sect mission that reward a Age-Prolonging Longevity-Enhancing Pill that can add a whole year of longevity however it needs several medicinal plants to complete the mission. Each medicinal plants' price are out of Bai Xiaochun's reach.

Several days later he comes up with a idea to sell the top 3 spots with Big Fatty Zhang and Third Fatty Hei in the nearing trials by fire whose reward the top 3 a spot as a disciple in the outer sect.

After successfully selling the outer sect disciples' spots to several disciples, including the rich Hou Xiaomei, the first time. Bai Xiaochun and co continued for a few months winning the top 3 spots each times. One day, the Supervisor Department stole their idea since it didn't broke any rules and Bai Xiaochun used this chance to get rid of the annoying Chen Fei and his two henchmen once for all by pushing them into the finishing line with Big Fatty Zhang and Third Fatty Hei. Angered Li Qinghou sent Bai Xiaochun and co into various peak as outer sect members. [7]

As Newly promoted disciple they can take a copy of the first eight levels of the Violet Qi Cauldron Control Art and also select a technique of their choosing. Bai Xiaochun took the Undying Live Forever Technique, an incomplete and difficult technique. Upon practicing it he end up quickly hungry. To satiate his hunger he started to steal Spirit Tail Chickens in the farms, earning the nickname of Chicken-Thieving Fiend. In same time, he starts to reveal an outstanding talent in the medicinal plants field due to his incredible memory and hard work, earning another nickname : Little Turtle. Both identities unknown to all besides a few ones.

As punishment for stealing his Spirit Tail Chickens, Li Qinghou forced Bai Xiaochun to reach the top 5 in a little competition. Due to his impressive protective shields and his three fold enhanced wooden sword he reached the top 5 easily after two battles. Thanks to his amazing luck he drawed two blank tickets successively and reached the final against an exhausted Du Lingfei. Unhappy with her unfair defeat, Du Lingfei challenged Bai Xiaochun to compete in Plants and Vegetation but Bai Xiaochun completely crushed her.

Sometimes later, he took the first place in all the ten steles outclassing completely Zhou Xinqi, a renowned Chosen in the Plants and Vegetation field. Not long after he took the promotion test for Journeyman Apothecary and ranked first shocking everyone with his concocting talents.

Suspecting that Bai Xiaochun is the Little Turtle, Qian Dajin the older cousin of Chen Fei sent a mission for Bai Xiaochun forcing him to go outside along with Du Lingfei and Feng Yan in order to investigate the missing disciple Hou Yunfei.

While traveling Bai Xiaochun quickly noticed that Feng Yan was sent to kill him but waited the right moment to make his move. A few months later, hints lead to Luochen Clan. Despite Bai Xiaochun's cautious warning they are still moving on until they notice Luochen Clan's Betrayal. After rescuing the badly weakened Hou Yunfei, while trying to escape Feng Yan decided to kill Bai Xiaochun but failed and Bai Xiaochun dragged him back to their enemies while himself successfully escaped along with Feng Yan's bag of holding.

Despite being hunted down by Luochen Clan members, Bai Xiaochun didn't abandon Du Lingfei and Hou Yunfei. Seeing how courageous he is despite his fear of death, Du Lingfei was deeply moved by him. Knowing how hard it will be for all to survive, Bai Xiaochun attracted all their pursuers away, killing his enemies while running away from them. After Bai Xiaochun successfully killed all his enemies he was left exhausted and lost consciousness. Meanwhile Spirit Stream Sect's reinforcement arrived after receiving the report from Du Lingfei and rescued both her and Hou Yunfei while exterminating the Luochen Clan. However Bai Xiaochun was left missing and was then left supposed dead. A funeral was organized and Bai Xiaochun received the title of Prestige Disciple, an honor on par with the Legacy Echelon but only reserved to the dead and was also named as Sect Leader's Junior Brother.

A mysterious man [8] appeared before Bai Xiaochun upon Bai Xiaochun awakened, the mysterious man presented himself as Gravekeeper gave him a pill that allow him to reach the Undying Bronze Skin level and the second volume of the Undying Codex before disappearing. After making a three fold enhancement on the pill and ate it, Bai Xiaochun reached the Undying Silver Skin level and totally skipped the Undying Bronze Skin level.

Upon returning to the sect he was at first disappointed he didn't received any rewards beside some titles but he soon start to enjoy the disciples calling him Sect Uncle leaving many disciples helpless.

As Prestige Disciple, their descendants are protected and nurtured by the sect. That attracted many clans, all wishing to marry their daughter to Bai Xiaochun. Using this chance Bai Xiaochun received many gifts every time he opens the door with more and more clans gathering each time giving an headache to the Sect Leader and the elders until one day a new rule was given and forbid to Bai Xiaochun to marry for a hundred years much to Bai Xiaochun's grief.

Thanks to all his gifts, he started to concoct tier-2 pills. One day he unexpectedly concocted an red pill. He wanted to use a tail chickens as a guinea pig but the pill was stolen by Elder Zhou's Phoenix. The effect of the pill was soon found out. It turns out it has an aphrodisiac effects. After what he successfully recreated the red pill that he named Aphrodisiac Pill and another pill he named Pheromone Pill [9]. In same time Elder Zhou finally found out the culprit and went to give a beating to Bai Xiaochun in order to save his own reputation in the sect because of all kinds of rumor. Albeit he restrained most of his strenght, he along with Sect Leader and Elders are surprised by Bai Xiaochun's strengh and potential. Finally the Sect Leader stepped in and saved both Bai Xiaochun and Elder Zhou's reputation.

Due to the circumstances he was forced to participate in the qualifying round to compete against the Spirit Stream Sect's north bank and unexpectedly outclassing all his opponents including the south bank's Chosen, stunning everyone. During the competition, he mindbroken Beihan Lie with his Pheromone Pill and Aphrodisiac Pill, scaring others from using their battle beasts, getting a blank vote, causing despair to Gongsun Wan'Er with his amazing defense, threatening Gongsun Yun with spectators' battle beasts. Bai Xiaochun successfully advanced to the top 3. Enraged by Shangguan Tianyou's insults, Bai Xiaochun completely crushed him stunning everyone once again [10]. Igniting Ghostfang's fighting spirit, both start the battle before the referee conclude the result on the previous battle. After theh exchanged a number of blows, Bai Xiaochun finally come up on the top thanks to his numerous enhanced magical treasures and advertised to all that Big Fatty Zhang is a prodigy in spirit enhancement. After the competition, the north bank's Peak Lords went to request the pill formula for the Aphrodisiac Pill and in exchange Bai Xiaochun obtained the Protomagnetic Pearl and the north bank's legacy, the secret magic : Waterswamp Kingdom.

Afterwhat he start to do hunting mission to earn merit point to exchange for medicine concoction's ingredients. Making use of his Aphrodisiac Pills, wherever he hunt, chaos ensues. Finally hundreds of Inner Sect disciples from the south bank's three mountain peaks signed a petition to the Sect requesting that Bai Xiaochun be exempted from mission service [11].

Not long after he starts to concoct medicinal pills but his furnaces keep exploding for a few months causing many disciples to go crazy. Finally one day he successfully concocted the tier-3 medicines but ended up with a few strange pills. He decided to them on animals. The results were a talking rabbit, a monkey with a vacant expression on his face, elephant-sized chickens, nibbling rabbits, twitching monkeys, loyal looking geese, legged fish, nine-headed tiger, etc.. [12]

After a jailbreak caused by the monkey, animals start to cause chaos in the sect. Mostly due to the talking rabbit that repeat everything he hears including many embarrassing secrets.. Fortunately Bai Xiaochun quickly caught them all back excluding the talking rabbit and released them outside the sect.

The high level of toxicity in the pills made Bai Xiaochun unhappy, he decided to invent a detoxify magic by using the lightning : Lightning Detox Grand Magic. At first the upper echelon were happy and encouraged him making many disciples helpless due to the damage and noice caused by Bai Xiaochun. However as if maddened he called more and more lightning until the numbers reach a thousand of lightning bolts enough to destroy Fragrant Cloud Peak. Fortunately Li Qinghou protected the peak and prevented any further damage. He banned Bai Xiaochun from concocting in the Fragrant Cloud Peak. Having no choice Bai Xiaochun went to ask help fromBig Fatty Zhang and statt to concoct in the Violet Cauldron Peak. After a few months of secretly concocting in the Violet Cauldron Peak with Bai Xiaochun waving everytime the black smoke out into the sky, it finally caused a rain that can dissolve the clothes to fall only in the Violet Cauldron Peak and spreaded out to Green Crest Peak. After getting hunted down by all the disciples, he ran back to Fragrant Cloud Peak and got exiled to the 10000 Snakes Valley. Annoyed by the hissing noice, Bai Xiaochun invented a contagious pill that prevent them to hiss. In turn it caused them to mutate, their weak fleshly body got strengthened and reveal a shocking aura. After trying to make a remedy, that remedy caused all the snakes to grow a horn out on their head. Their violent nature exploded and burrowed out of the cave, heading towards the three peaks. Knowing the outcome, he ran to the safest place which is his dead Master's Cave however he unintentionally revealed his location to the talking. Using his master's portrait he tried to solve the issue but ended up angering the Sect Leader. As punishment Bai Xiaochun was sent to Spirit Stream Sect's north bank.

Officially he was send to the north bank to observe a host of beasts and improve his Waterswamp Kingdom. He was arranged to serve as the honor guard of the Beast Conservatory. In the north bank he planted the Beastbirth Seed obtained from Luochen Clan [13].

It doesn't take long for Bai Xiaochun to rule over all the battle beasts in the Beast Conservatory shocking the previous honor guard and that news added up to his past deeds become common topics in the north bank. Beihan Lie and other Chosens, excluding Ghostfang, all challenged Bai Xiaochun in a battle and thousands of disciples followed up. Angered, Bai Xiaochun beat half of them in a single punch and a few punches for the Chosens, earning respect from the north bank disciples.

After he observed all the battle beasts in the north bank, feeling that something is missing he found himself attract to the scales of a status. Sitting down next to it and used five times as long as Ghostfang to enter into an enlightenment state and spent five times as long inside. Due to his lack of cultivation, he couldn't fully summoned his life essence beast from the Waterswamp Kingdom Technique but simply the bone spur was still enough to shock yet again the north bank disciples, the north bank's Peak lords and Li Qinghou. [14]

Not long after he makes all the best battle beasts to contribute the Beastbirth Flower, including the four spirit beast guardians, beasts from Peak Lord and the holy beast guardian Heavenhorn ink dragon. Making the ranting Peak Lords and north bank disciples speechless. The Beastbirth Flower gave birth to Bruiser, a sixth bloodline order battle beasts surpassing the Heavenhorn ink dragon's fifth bloodline order with even the chance to increase its bloodline order. [15].

Time passed and it was time to participate in the Foundation Establishment Holy Lands in order to reach the Foundation Establishment realm. In the Fallen Sword Abyss, he successfully harvested enough earthstrings by using his newly made Aphrodisiac pills, however he also made a few strange pills that attracted all banebeasts and banesouls. A white dressed girl managed to eat a pill and got awakened. After completing his Ninth Tideflow, Bai Xiaochun went on a revenge rampage and made a oath to make all the surviving Spirit Stream disciples to reach the earthstring foundation realm. After successfully disturbed Song Que's Ninth Tideflow, Bai Xiaochun found a Heavenstring energy. Chaos ensues, everyone are fighting for it including Ghostfang, Shangguang Tianyou and Beihan Lie besides Spirit Stream Disciples. After successfully seized the heavenstring energy he reached the Heaven-Dao Foundation Establishment Realm, the Fallen Sword Abyss starts to crumble and everyone were teleported out in a random location. Bai Xiaochun landed on a location near the Eastwood City managed by Du Lingfei. Du Lingfei explained to Bai Xiaochun that her commission was almost over, and there would be no harm in returning to the sect early. As such, she would accompany him on his way back. While Bai Xiaochun was sleeping, this is revealed that her identity was a sham and all was fake besides the Luochen Clan events. She disappeared soon after she kissed Bai Xiaochun on the lips. [16]

Bai Xiaochun was left traumatized for sometime after her disappearance. According to the sect investigation Sect Leader Zhang hinted him that she was a spy causing a tremor to run throughout Bai Xiaochun. After encouraged and motivated Bai Xiaochun by revealing the world structure, the sect's aim in replacing the weakened Middle Reaches Sect's Sky River Court, Bai Xiaochun put the Du Lingfei's matter in the back of his mind and start to think about his future and his desire to live forever.

As reward for reaching the foundation establishment, he can select a light up legacy shaft but when he entered the Ancestral Darktunnel, each and every one of the hundred shafts lit up making available for him and even began to pulse with gravitational force. At the end the only hidden legacy of the sect Violet Qi Heavenspan Incantation whisked him away shocking all the observing prime elders.

Not long after he remembered a certain mask that he obtained during the battle to seize the heavenstring energy. Afterwhat he learned from the soul inside the mask that he was a spy sent by a mysterious organization to infiltrate the Blood Stream Sect in order to steal the relic of eternal indestructibility and the mask can let him disguise into Nightcrypt, a disciple of Blood Stream Sect, without anyone below Mahayana Realm able to found out. Enticed by the word 'eternal' and 'indestructibility' he was tempted to infiltrate Blood Stream Sect but gave up after considering the danger.

However later due to the circumstances, he decided to infiltrate Blood Stream Sect. The time that Spirit Stream Sect's disciples, elders, Sect Leader and Prime Elders' anger calm down...

In same time he found that the original Nightcrypt was a womanizer with strange tastes and Nightcrypt explained to him that he was desperate for medicinal pills.

Bai Xiaochun quickly found that he can cultivate the Undying Codex in a stunning speed, making great progress everyday. In his identity of great circle of the tenth level of Qi Condensation, he was invited by Zhao Wuchang to participate in a gathering. In there, he learned a few things such as a bounty was put on Bai Xiaochun's head and a trial by fire will be organized to compete for Mortal-Dao Foundation Establishment pills.

To qualify for the trial by fire, they had to accomplish a mission set forth by the sect. Each person received a different mission, and Bai Xiaochun’s was to go to Corpse Peak and refine a corpse. The requirement was to grow white hair on the corpse. After concocting a pill and feed it to the corpse, the corpse grew red hair. Afterwhat Bai Xiaochun feed him various pills, continously changing his hair color. From red to violet, violet to pink, then from pink to orange. At one point it even turned blue. But never white. Simultaneously, the zombie’s murderous aura grew stronger and stronger, and its claws became even sharper.
