|“||With close attention to the Azure dragon court robe on Bai Yongxi - majestic and composed, whose extremely intricate details not all make people feel messy. Obviously the technique of its designer has reached perfection. The dragon ring around the waist resonates with the necklace, unveiling the powerful and far reaching background of the clan of Dawn Dragon.
We can only imagine how luxurious the attire Bai designs for the Top of Cloud would be.
— Bai Yongxi's description in the Time Diary
Bai Yongxi has a serious demeanor, with long, straight silver hair and formal dark turquoise clothing. The Empress of Cloud described him as having a "poker face".
Bai Yongxi is not playful or lighthearted like his cousin Bai Jinjin. He believes in hard work and puts a lot of pressure on the Cloud Empress, encouraging her to study hard in order to one day lead the country. In order to simulate how his opponents in the war may act, Bai Yongxi studies chess and plays against himself.
He is a strong proponent of revitalizing Cloud Empire, especially as he believes that the blood curse that brings them peace will be broken one day. They are less technologically advanced as other nations such as Apple and Pigeon, and they still do not have a proper transportation or information system.
The following items were designed by Bai Yongxi:
Bai Yongxi was born to Bai Yuandao, the Prime Minister of Cloud, and the daughter of the noble family Liu. He grew up open-minded, with his uncle Liu Mengteng providing a significant influence on him. It was said that he traveled the world with a fan when he was young.
At the age of 12, Bai Yongxi designed the dress Jade Yard. From this point, he became well-known across the Cloud Empire, and it was the common belief that he would rise to become the leader of the Bai clan. It was also expected that he would continue to design clothing that fit the Cloud style.
At the age of 15, Bai Yongxi traveled abroad, taking up the hobbies of literature, art, and flying planes.
At the age of 16, Bai Yongxi became the heir of the Bai clan by winning first place in the contest Top of Cloud.
As the regent of Cloud, Bai Yongxi took a vow to rule Cloud peacefully, especially with the blood curse in mind. He held egalitarian principles in court, and made an effort to weaken the power of the nobles while helping to lift up new ideas from commoners.
Bai Yongxi sometimes tired of staying in Cloud Capital. He thought it was important to explore the world, and would leave studying and history books to travel Miraland.
Before Bai Yongxi officially became the clan leader, he had been already managing the affairs of the family for a long time. He struck a deal with the elders of the Bai clan, saying that if he could create a design better than theirs, then they would formally give him the position. They agreed, and Bai Yongxi set to work on his design, though he had trouble perfecting it. However, he realized that he could not compare himself to others, and that he could only be himself. With this in mind, he gave his design to the elders, ousted the current head of the family Qian Zhi, and became the head of the Bai clan.
During this year, Bai Yongxi and Zhu Yuxian also played a game of Go together on the eastern coast. Bai Yongxi didn't know Zhu Yuxian's true identity as the king of South Cloud, so he assumed he was just a ranger.
Bai Yongxi attended the White Blossom Banquet in order to buy clothes for his cousin Bai Jinjin. Though he was not invited, he took Jia Yuanbao's invitation after giving him Federal Police Badge. During the auction, he paid 1 million for a cheongsam. He witnessed Reid asking Kimi, disguised as a man, to dance, but this did not faze him. He left the banquet partway through and called somebody on his phone, telling them to "investigate Mercury Group". The light went out almost immediately afterwards, signaling the theft of the White Blossom.
He went to Lu Yinian's restaurant in Welton and provoked Nikki and her friends by questioning Zhong Lizi's ability as a general. However, after finding out they were friends of Bai Jinjin, he warmed up to them and asked if they could have a drink together. He thanked them for helping Bai Jinjin and told them that she was kept at home now due to running away. After talking to them, he left to return to Cloud for the War of Cloud Summit, carrying a new Apple-styled outfit and a secret letter in his suitcase.
Annal of AgesEdit
Zhu Yuxian was surprised to see him there, but regardless, they began a game of Go in the ruined temple. There, they discussed the future of Cloud, the Blood Curse, and their encounter three years previously. Though Zhu Yuxian had criticisms for how Bai Yongxi was running the empire, he believed that he wouldn't let another tragedy like the one that had happened in Cloud City happen again.
During the game, a massive thunderstorm began, but the two men played on. Bai Yongxi was near to losing, but as he set down his last piece, Zhu Yuxian declared him the winner and got up to leave. Right as Zhu Yuxian's figure disappeared, the sky cleared up and the sun appeared again.
While Bai Yongxi and Zhu Yuxian were on the mountain, thirteen cities along the southern border of Cloud rebelled. They managed to advance to the gates of the city in only three days and breached the city walls the night before he returned, emptying the Phoenix Clan's palace. Since he had disappeared, everybody began to look for him, and Yue Qianshuang and Ming Shuiyuan even came to Cloud Capital once they heard about the situation.
When Bai Yongxi got back to the palace, he went to read the reports on the situation as soon as he found out what had happened. However, the Cloud Empress asked him to tell her a bedtime story first, and he chose to tell her the story of his first game of Go with Zhu Yuxian three years previously.
Bai Yongxi and Zhu Yuxian met up again at some point at Wenying Hall to discuss the state of the war. The two disagreed over whose fault the ongoing battle was, and discussed the true identity of the Cloud Empress, suggesting that she was not the actual empress. The encounter ended with a deal and Zhu Yuxian withdrawing his men from the battle.
Though he believes she is naive, Bai Yongxi cares a great deal for Bai Jinjin, going to Welton to bid on Apple-style clothes while she is kept at home by her father. He thanks Nikki and her friends for taking care of Bai Jinjin while she ran away from home.
Bai Yongxi also gave her advice based on his own experience. One piece of advice was sent on a postcard to her while he was traveling, telling her that she could never know the world without experiencing it herself.
Bai Yongxi was the Empress's older brother figure and teacher. He instructed her on how to run the country from a young age, and gave her words to recite. He never spoke to her about the war occurring in Cloud.
He taught the Empress to play chess, leading her to become an excellent chess player, but never played against her directly. One day the Empress had difficulty with a chess game, leading her search all of the books on chess for the answer, but she couldn't find the answer. Only after watching Bai Yongxi play a game of chess against himself did she understand.
Zhu Yuxian is Bai Yongxi's political opponent.
