The story is set a hundred years after a war between the Empire of Snow (Ice Tribe) and the Fire Tribe, where the Fire Tribe was defeated. However, the war was fatal, leaving Prince Ka Suo and his younger half-brother Ying Kong Shi the only royal heirs left in the Ice Tribe. Conflict ensues after Ka Suo reluctantly ascends to the throne as his lover, Li Luo, and his brother go missing.
Ka Suo also accidentally discovers an evil presence lurking in the Ice Tribe's holy shrine. He and his companions enter the mysterious shrine, and defeat head of the shrine, Lady Yuan Ji, only to find out that she has been plotting a conspiracy against him. Ka Suo also experiences hardships in trying to find his lover and brother, not knowing that his brother has lost all of his memories and has become the Fire Prince under his mother's command. A war between the two tribes commences once again, with the two brothers pitted against each other.
I have nothing to wish for except for you to live far away from all sadness and only in happiness.
You make me want to become a better person.
All these illusions that the mortals fail to see through are merely the mist I play with fingers. A thousand years for them are just a split second for me.
One dream for one life/One tune for one lyre/One season for one day/One love for one eternity
Do you ever know how cold it is in the depth of the frozen ocean? I lie in the deepest lightless abyss, missing your smile and that sadness of yours which so much resemble graceful mist. Missing, so painfully. If you can hear me, I want you to know that I miss you. Can you take me home?
