再生缘: 我的温柔暴君 Love in Another Life: My Gentle Tyrant by 墨舞碧歌 Mo Wu Bi Ge

Characters

  • Nian Xuanji/Zhu Qi/Hang Zisu: FL Zhu Qi, transmigrated to Xi Liang via a mirror in a store owned by a “blue eyed guy” (who turns out to be Xue Liujing). She wakes up as the Nian Xuanji, the “favoured” consort of the emperor Long Fei Li. Zhu Qi is the reincarnation of Hang Zisu, the seventh child of the Celestial Emperor. She was Long Hao’s Empress but was not favoured by him (she believes). In that life she dies saving Long Hao and Mo Cong. When she dies, Long Hao realises he actually loves her and asks for a chance for her to be reborn. He makes a deal with the Buddha(?) to bring her back but in exchange Buddha brings everyone back and gives him a second chance to find and fulfill their fate.
  • Long Fei Li/Long Hao(Dragon King): ML, in both lives he starts out “loving” Mo Cong/Ruyi but eventually he realises (albeit too late in their first life) that he loves the FL. He has his own agenda and often keeps the FL in the dark because he believes that she can’t tell a lie (her emotions are too transparent), which in the end results in a lot of misunderstanding and heartache for the FL. Prior to him realising he loves the FL he does sleep with/acts intimate with other women – his Queen gets pregnant but she loses her baby before its born. After his realisation he is fully dedicated and loyal to the FL, but the FL does not know this and often catches him seemingly acting intimate with other women.
  • Wen Ruyi (Consort of Xuesong Palace)/ Xin Zhuizhui/Mo Cong: Second FL, you will hate her but at the same time when you think about her situation you will feel a bit sorry for her. As Mo Cong she was Long Hao’s favoured concubine before FL came along. As Ruyi she was the girl who grew up with LFL, helping him, being a spy for him and basically dedicated her whole life to him believing that one day when he finally has hold of all power he will marry her and make her his queen. This all fell apart when the FL came into the picture. As Zin Zhuizhui, after she transmigrated and she “remembered” her past she was not a likeable character at all and just needed to wake up from her delusions. She could have lived happily with Long Zijin who was also by her side for all those years LFL was. She was also pregnant but the baby is not LFL’s but instead LZJ. LZJ does not remember that he slept together with WRY (he was drunk) and also believes the baby is LFL’s.
  • Bai Zhanfeng/Bai Zixu/Lin Sheng/Xue Liujing: Second ML. As Xue Liujing, the King of the Snow Wolves, he was rescued by Zisu and loves her from then on. As Bai Zhanfeng, he was the general of the Xi Liang army. He met the FL, loves and admires her. At one point when she lost all her memories he was happily ready to marry her and take care of her forever but LFL showed up right before they got married. When he realise that LFL didn’t abandon her on purpose, he took a step back. He died in battle as a means to “kill” his alternate ego, Bai Zixu. But the FL does not know this and blamed his death on the ML (ML knows but of course he doesn’t tell the FL). As Lin Sheng, he was Zhu Qi’s modern day crush.
  • Long Ziuwen: Prince Yunyang, LFL’s 7th brother. He wanted the crown. He also “loves”/”lusts” after the FL. During the novel he remembers his past life as the God of War, a military commander under the Celestial Emperor. He loved Zisu in that life but she never knew. In this life he knows everyone’s past identities and schemes to win the crown and also FL. Because Ruyi tells him of the ML & FL’s travel plans it ends up with the FL getting raped by LZW. FL falls pregnant while the ML has a “gu” placed in him which if he gets too emotional will kill him. The FL can’t tell the ML that she was raped by his brother as she believes this would kill him. This leads to the opening chapters of the book, where she’s pregnant and is sentenced to death – and where the ML believes the baby is BZF’s.
  • Cui Ya/Jia Yuhuan: As Cui Ya, she was Xuan Ji’s loyal servant. She dies while they were imprisoned. In their past life she was also Zisu’s loyal servant. As Jia Yu Huan she was Zhu Qi’s loyal friend. She ends up travelling back with Zhu Qi in Xin Zhuizhui’s body. She liked the Wolf King in her past and present life.

    • She gets angry because instead of worrying about their state he instead lashes out and thinks that she’s done something with BFZ.
