Zhu Yuxian is the head of the Phoenix Clan, one of the Great Four Families Of Cloud.



Ask which dress is both elegant and luxurious, and the people of the Cloud Empire will think of South Kingdom Empress Zhu Yuxian's golden coral silk gown. The plain white gown is accented with shiny red plums. A bright red satin belt is layered upon the waist.

He is truly royalty.

— Zhu Yuxian's description in the Time Diary

Zhu Yuxian has straight waist-length brown hair that is pulled into a ponytail, which hangs over his left shoulder with bangs falling onto his face, light brown or dark brown eyes and he wears a long white gown with red and gold trim.


Zhu Yuxian has a smug and confident demeanor as he replied "Heh, I don’t need you to tell me about what I already intended to do. Trust me this once." to Bai Yongxi when Bai Yongxi asked him to remove his troops from Jinlin Palace.

Xiao Zong believed he was a complex man with simple feelings, making him unique and interesting. Ming Shuiyuan once thought of him as a warm, smiling boy, but after he turned on her and attacked her, her image of him was shattered. [3]


Year 677 Edit

During this year, Zhu Yuxian and Bai Yongxi played a game of Go together on the eastern coast. Zhu Yuxian hid his true identity as the king of South Cloud, so Bai Yongxi assumed he was just a ranger.[4]

Year 680 Edit

During this year, Zhu Yuxian assisted Nidhogg with his takeover of Cloud City by intercepting intelligence for him, which resulted in destruction and the death of the chief designer Lunar.[5]

Zhu Yuxian invited Bai Yongxi to play a game of Go on Mount Tai Chi.[6] He was surprised to see Bai Yongxi actually turn up, but regardless, they began a game of Go in the ruined temple.[7] There, they discussed the future of Cloud,[8] the Blood Curse,[5] and their encounter three years previously.[4] 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.[8][4]

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 left the mountain, the sky cleared up and the sun appeared again.[9]

While Zhu Yuxian and Bai Yongxi were on the mountain, thirteen cities along the southern border of Cloud rebelled.[1] 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.[10]

They 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.[11]

Art of WarEdit

Swift WindEdit

Zhu Yuxian yearned to learn the art of erasing his own memories, or "forgetting and sealing". He met Xiao Zong, who attempted to teach him how. After learning this art, Zhu Yuxian tried to kill the girl he once loved, Ming Shuiyuan, but she was saved by Xiao Zong.[12]


Zhu Ruosheng Edit

Zhu Ruosheng is a member of the Phoenix clan and a relative of Zhu Yuxian.

Xiao ZongEdit

Xiao Zong believed Zhu Yuxian was unique and interesting, and had "the most complex mind and the simplest feelings at the same time". Zhu Yuxian exceeded all of his expectations. They formed a friendship which caused Xiao Zong to leave the Flower Field. Xiao Zong taught him how to erase his own memories.[12]

Ming ShuiyuanEdit

Zhu Yuxian was said to once love Ming Shuiyuan, and she reciprocated his feelings. It is implied that he learned to erase his feelings, removing his love for her, and stabbed her.[3]
