|“||In this world, if you do not have enough strength, you are nothing. You won’t even be able to control your own life.||”|
Jian Chen is the main protagonist of the novel. He's renowned for his impeccable swordsmanship from his former life of Jianghu, as well as his sharp features.
He was reincarnated in the Tian Yuan Continent as "Changyang Xiang Tian".
A youth that was no older than 20 years old. This youth was incredibly handsome with a flawless facial appearance. It could be said that his appearances was simply unrivaled throughout the world and was a natural lady killer. His rather ordinary-looking eyes contained a unique amount aof ttractiveness and fascination to them and seemed as if it could steal the soul of whomever.
The youth had long black hair with a length that reached his waist without being tied up in any way, allowing it to float freely in the fierce wind as if it was dancing. On his back was a single long sword that was wrapped up in a thick white layer of cloth. On the exquisite sword hilt that stuck out from the cloth, one could make out the two words “Light Wind”. What was most puzzling about the sword however was the fact that there had been no ropes binding it to the youth at all. It seemed as if it was stuck to the back of the youth without any chance of falling–clearly a very hard display to explain.
This youth’s name was Jian Chen, the number one expert with a name that shook the Heavens and the Jianghu with the moniker of “Sword God”. His quick sword techniques had long since reached perfection and could be considered the sword master of the generation. Despite being only 20 or so years old, he had already reached a realm of great heights.
A handsome and determined youth that is the envy of all men and women.
His handsome appearance was among the top of pretty boys and he had a perfectly balanced face that no one could complain about.
All this was combined with his pale white skin that suited his appearance and caused many females to be jealous—Jian Chen was practically a walking killer of women.
With his handsome and determined face, Jian Chen looked like a person that could not be trifled with.
He was the quintessence of a dragon among men, domineering and unrivaled.
In the manhua, he has violet hair that accentuates his mother's side of the family.
After becoming a teen, he had his hair slicked back.
He noticeably has a single protruding lock of hair that stands out.
Much like an "Ahoge" (foolish hair) where an anime character has a single lock of hair sticking on top of the head.
He is also described as being a little shorter in his group and is always reminded of that.
From his former life of Jianghu, he is very stoic in-contrast to his delicate features and is known to be quite sharp and decisive when it comes to killing.
He will not forgive anyone that dares harm his friends and family. He would find and chase you until the ends of the world once you harm his wife and family.
He has also stated that hates playboys
He has a very comical personality in the manhua, in contrast with his serious and sharp novel counterpart.
However, his brave and resolute personality from his previous life is still present and he would not stand by if anyone dares harms his family and friends.
After leaving the clan, he left his arrogant side and became rather docile compared to his former wild-side. Because of this, he is often teased by his mercenary group.
Main article: Jian Chen/Biography
Jian Chen, the publicly recognized number one expert of the Jianghu. His skill with the sword went beyond perfection and was undefeatable in battle, After a battle with the exceptional expert Dugu Qiubai who had gone missing over a hundred years ago, which ended with Dugu Qiubai dying moments before Jian Chen succumbed to his injuries and died.
After death, Jian Chen’s spirit was preserved by the Purple Azure Sword Spirits, and transmigrated into a Higher Realm; the Tian Yuan Realm.
From the very beginning, he practiced the Azulet Sword Law, and he absorbed the energy from the world to strengthen his body. As a result, his body developed at an inconceivably rapid rate, such that, in a single year he would already reach a height of 1.2 meters, closer to that of a 5-year-old boy.
When he became 3 years old, he took the traditional Saint Force Test to determine his potential as a Cultivator. Surprisingly, the stone did not react at all, misleading people into thinking he was crippled. In fact, all Saint Force he would have acquired had been refined into fleshly body strength. This piece of news spread across the entire clan very quickly, revealing that the talented young master was actually a cripple. He fell from heaven to hell in a single stroke. His father Changyang Ba rarely visited him after that. In fact, one could count the number of times Changyang Ba saw Jian Chen with one's own fingers during those years. Only his mother, sister, second aunt, and uncle Chang still cared for him like before.
However, 6 months later, he had completed the basic strengthening of his body to no one's knowledge. 4 years later, he had reached the 4th Step of Saint Force. He revealed his strength by fighting some insolent servants of the clan, as well as beating his 3rd brother in a sparring match. His father heard of this and his progress was confirmed by his taking the test again.
Then, he was sent to the greatest cultivating academy in the surrounding region, Kargath Academy, which would be the starting point of his adventures.

- (To You Yue) "To live in this world is to live without any feelings of pity. The only thing you should look at is the road you walk on underneath your feet. I gave them a chance to surrender, but they didn’t cherish it. In this world, there is no such thing as cruel or uncruel. There is only strength. Strength is what is needed in order to survive." 
- (To the Heavenly Enchantress) “I know I owe Xiao Bao a lot for all the years I have been gone. I haven’t taken up the role of a father. I’m not a responsible one, but I will make up for what I have done as much as I can. Xiao Bao is my second chance at life!” Chapter 1408: Shangguan Aojian's Transformation (Two)
- (To Shangguan Mu) "Although I was a young master of the Changyang clan, son of the current patriarch Changyang Ba, there were people who would come and bully me in the clan. They would make fun of me and harrass me, and my father never helped me at all, maybe because he forgot that he had me as a son. However, even though that happened, I do not resent my father, nor do I blame him because he is my father by blood. He gave me my life." Chapter 1508: Thinking Things Through
- (Reflections) In this world, if you do not have enough strength, you are nothing. You won’t even be able to control your own life. 
- (To Xiao Ling) "Xiao Ling, back when I was very weak, it was you who protected me. From today on, let me protect you. Once I possess strength that exceeds Returnance, no one will be able to harm or hurt you at all..." Chapter 1473: Saving Xiao Ling
- (To the people who came from Tian Yuan Continent) "As long as you all can live a peaceful life, everything I do is worth it.”
- Jian Chen is someone that has experienced two lives. His former life was that of a commoner compared to the background of his second life.
- The Azulet Sword Law was something that Jian Chen had stumbled upon when he was a child. He had accidentally fallen off of a cliff while playing in the mountains, and somehow managed to survive the fall by landing in a pool of water. When he had awoken, he had found himself trapped in a cavern with fish as his only source of food. After finding the manual, he had dedicated himself to learning it, and finally succeeded after 10 years. With his breakthrough, he was able to jump out of the cavern and return to the lands above.
- Jian Chen in his previous life was a war orphan who had been taken in by his great grandfather and grandmother. After 10 years had past while he was trapped in a cave, his great grandparents had already passed away from old age a long time ago. After paying his respects to them, the now alone Jian Chen left his little mountainside village to travel the world by himself.
