The old man wore a green Dao robe. He was none other than the Zhen Ling Side Hall’s dean, Core Forging Realm Enlightened Master Xuan-Yong.

Enlightened Master Xuan-Yong had the appearance of a friendly and amiable neighborhood grandfather, and he was highly respected by the master immortals and the disciples. Standing beside him in the center of the arena were two middle-aged cultivators wearing Dao robes.

Enlightened Master Xuan-Yong smiled and said, “Master immortals, your merits are undeniable when it comes to the disciples’ achievements!”

The master immortals quickly bowed and thanked him for the praise.

Then, Xuan-Yong pointed to the two beside him and said, “I assume you must know them. But the disciples don’t know who they are yet, so they should still introduce themselves.”
