The robes worn by cultivators of the Qishan Wen Clan are white with red hems and sun motifs. High-ranking cultivators wear these "sun robes" with flames around the sleeves and collar.
The Qishan Wen Clan was defined by grandeur. They used the sun as their motif, signifying that they could "compete with the sun for radiance, match the sun in longevity."
Its clan residence was enormous, almost comparable to a city. Their residence was named Nightless Sky, because it was said that there was no nightfall in their city. They had more magical tools, power, land, and disciples than any others.
Like all cultivation clans, the Wen Clan taught unique sword techniques.
Among the cultivation world, there was a countless number of sects and clans, exceeding even the number of stars in the sky. And, among these, there was a titan which stood above the others without a doubt—the Qishan Wen Clan.
The Qishan Wen Clan was founded by Wen Mao, the first cultivator to switch from the school-based system of cultivation to a bloodline-based system. This was the beginning of the current Cultivation Clan system, built around extended clan families.
At the height of its power, there were no clans that could compare to the Wen Clan's number of disciples, power, land, or magical tools. Many cultivators took supreme honor in being a foreign disciple to the Qishan Wen Clan.
However, under Wen Ruohan, the Qishan Wen Clan becomes tyrannical, committing atrocities such as the burning of the Cloud Recesses and massacre of Lotus Pier. This prompts the four other great clans to unite in the Sunshot Campaign to overthrow the Qishan Wen Clan. After Qishan Wen Clan's defeat, Nightless Sky becomes deserted almost overnight. Most of the few surviving members are abused and eventually killed.
