— Li Qiye about Cassia Lotus Tree
When the Evil Infested Ridge opened at the start of the Current Era, Li Qiye brought the group from the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect inside and led them to the Cassia Lotus Tree. Li Qiye asked the Tree to protect his fellow disciples, and after it agreed he left them under Tree's protection to hunt down Heavenly Beasts and Longevity Spirits and gather precious materials.
It was incredibly huge tree beyond human imagination. Its base penetrated the horizon while the dragon-like branches broadened to all directions. This giant tree was like a giant umbrella that encompassed the mountains thousands of miles away. Just a single tiny branch was as big as a small mountain. Where was even a waterfall on top of the tree.
