Summary
Qin, the King of the northern province, is constantly being threatened by assassination attempts from all over the country. "Broken Sword", "Flying Snow" and "Sky" were the most dangerous. One day, swordsman "Nameless" claims that he has killed all three of the emperor's enemies and explains how he used their weakness to attack them. However, the King refuses this story and claims this swordsman is actually the most dangerous assassin of all
