— Li Qiye about Hong Tian
Hong Tian was born during the Emperors Era in a big and prosperous city in the Hundred Cities region of the Mortal Emperor World. As a little girl she met Dark Crow who took her as his disciple.
Path to the Immortal Emperor
As she swept through the heaven and earth to reach the apex, Dark Crow always accompanied her in the shadow. Together they travelled to far and far away places. They were always together and shared many experiences.
According to Li Qiye, Hong Tian was not the most talented in her generation, and she was weaker than many other geniuses, but she had a stronger Dao Heart. Thanks to it she eventually suppressed everyone and became one of the greatest Immortal Emperors in history.
Thousand Emperors Gate
One of her opponents for the Heaven's Will was a member of the Thousand Emperors Gate, one sect with four Emperors in a row, who wanted to become their fifth Immortal Emperor in row. Unfortunately, Hong Tian not only killed him, but she also destroyed Thousand Emperors Gate entirely.
Divine Beast Realm
Her third opponent was Mo Peng, a disciple of the Divine Beast Realm. He was eventually defeated by Hong Tian. Unconvinced by his defeat, the Divine Beast Realm encouraged all the sects in the Stone Medicine World to ambush Hong Tian who had yet to ascend to Immortal Emperor. All the most powerful lineages in this world were involved in this terrible ambush, including the Alchemy Kingdom, the Jianlong Clan, and the Beastmaster Citadel as well as other imperial sects.
This ambush enraged Dark Crow, who sent his army to the Stone Medicine World. The army swept through the Stone Medicine World and besieged the Divine Beast Realm. Hong Tian took the vanguard to attack the Divine Beast Realm. Eventually she forcefully dragged the Divine Beast Realm from the sky and completely destroyed it.
The surviving sects made a Blood Oath to the Dark Crow and promised to never show up in the world again.
Mysterious Bamboo Mountain
A fourth opponent was South Emperor, the most brilliant genious from the Mysterious Bamboo Mountain. However, unlike the rest of the opponents, he chose to withdraw himself from the competition for the Heavens Will and sealed himself waiting for a more opportune generation.
Imperial Lineages Suppression
After Hong Tian formally ascended to Immortal Emperor she laid her suppression on all lineages that participated in the ambush, including the Alchemy Kingdom, the Jianlong Clan, and the Beastmaster Citadel as well as other imperial sects.
Parting with Dark Crow
After she became an Immortal Emperor and separated from Dark Crow, Hong Tian visited the Prime Ominous Grave's Divine Dragon Mountain again. She gazed at the Stone At The Peak for a long time, but eventually went away, believing that only Dark Crow is worthy of such a peerless Destiny Stone.
Hong Tian was one of the many Immortal Emperors who reached the center of the Drystone Courtyard. All of them were tempted by the thing there; they all wished to obtain it. However, even Emperors were not able to do so. The ultimate force of petrification forced the Emperors to retreat with great haste. However, their shadows were frozen to forever be buried in this place.
Hong Tian gave a fragment of the Emperor Suppression Art she created to the Allpine Treefather when he was just a pine tree with only a sliver of awareness. It was studying this law that allowed the Allpine Treefather to become a demon with sentience.
In the Current Era, after Li Qiye regained his original body, he traveled to the Hundred Cities and visited the place where he met Hong Tian for the first time. Unfortunately the once great city had turned into a wilderness with towering trees.
Li Qiye met the intent Hong Tian left in the Stone Medicine World's Alchemy Kingdom. Her intent alone was enough to suppress the avatars left behind by the three emperors from the Alchemy Kingdom.
During Li Qiye's battle with one of the giants of the Darkness, someone intervenes in the critical moment using the Emperor Suppressing Art to help prevent his enemy from escaping. Li Qiye sighs since she doesn't show herself but is happy to have news that she still exists.
- Emperor Suppression Art: Is is her signature move, a technique made to suppress even other Immortal Emperors.
- Hong Tian is the only female Immortal Emperor that calls herself Empress (女帝).
- Hong Tian was the most exceptional Immortal Emperor developed by Dark Crow.
- Hong Tian is one of the few beings who know that Li Qiye is the legendary Dark Crow.
