Haixing is the name of the planet on which the drama takes place.

Over 10,000 years ago, a spaceship landed on it. (ep01) Half of its passengers were Dixingren, the other half Yashou. (ep34)

The Yashous' genes mixed with those of plants and animals and they evolved to possess the same characteristics as those plants and animals. They were also able to shift forms at will. (ep01)

The Dixingren chose to stay underground, which is how they received their name. The underground climate caused them to experience a chemical reaction that led to genetic mutations. So while they looked like the inhabitants of Haixing, they developed powers that gave them various abilities such as controlling water, thunder and lightning, decomposing natural materials, and controlling human will. Their numbers were far less than those of the Haixingren. (ep01)

The three groups lived peacefully until a meteor crashed and destroyed the ecosystem of the planet. The resources of Dixing started to deplete, so the Dixing people started escaping above ground. Some of them started to invade Haixing and Yashou lands for resources and war broke out. (ep01)

The allied forces of Haixing, Yashou, and a small group of Dixingren won the war against the rebel Dixingren. The four Hallows were the deciding factor. They were created with the powers from the meteorite.

A peace treaty (the Guardian Treaty) was signed in which the Dixingren agreed to return underground to Dixing.

The Haixingren stayed on Haixing.

The Yashou tribes were led by Fu You to find a "faraway retreat filled with poetry and dreams." (ep01, ep34)

Dragon City[]

Dragon City (龙城, Lóng Chéng) is where most of the drama takes place. It was built over the hollow in the ground that was created by the "aerolite" (?), so the connection between Haixing and Dixing is there. (ep34)

It contains Dragon City University, which is where Shen Wei has obtained his PhD and now teaches. The SID is also located here, at No. 4 Bright Avenue. (ep01)
