Sa Zhenren was a legendarily powerful sorcerer from the City of Spires, the only sorcerer in history known to have had control over lightning. Authorities on magic have debated for many years about the nature of lightning; in a sorcerous context it only seems to appear as awryage when there is an enormous excess of Yang, which makes it difficult to understand how Sa Zhenren was able to manipulate it as if it were an element.

It is said that thanks to many very potent herbal elixirs Master Sa lived a full Great Cycle, and it is also said that as his pallbearers carried his coffin it gradually got lighter and lighter, and by the time they reached the grave that had been prepared, they found that his body had vanished.
