When Li Qiye visited the Nine Saint Demon Gate, at Nan Huairen's request, Zhang led them around the Gate. As many others, he despised Li Qiye for his cultivation level, so he only made conversation with Nan Huairen and treated Li Qiye like an invisible man.
Eventually, they reached the Training Ground of the Gate, where Li Qiye saw Tetra-War Stone Protectors. He tried to climb on top of one of them, but couldn't. Nan Huairen was embarassed by his behavior, while Zhang, didn't want to stand there for a second longer and immediately left without a departing salutation.
