It was named by Immortal Emperor Min Ren's generals to memorialize his master, Dark Crow. They left a legend for the Sect, which states that before Min Ren became Immortal Emperor, the heavens sent a godly crow to teach him, and it happened exactly on this mountain.
Close to the end of the Emperors Era Mu Shaohuang was punished and chained at the Heavenly Crow Peak. However, his identity was hidden from future generations and no one knew who he was or why he was chained.
Due to Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect's decline, the Heavenly Crow Peak is essential for its survival, and thus it is heavily fortified with patrols every three steps and a defense post every five. It is protected by elite disciples and two Elders. Without permission from the Sect Master or the Elders, no disciple could enter the Heavenly Crow Peak.
