That’s when the group meets the group meets the White Witch, who would be considered “the Tyrant” villain archetype.

Road of Trials
The White Witch
“the Tyrant” villain archetype
The Magic flight
Jason and his group began to retreat on their horse, because there were to many of the Jade army soldiers. The White Witch doesn’t try to chase the group, but instead shoots an arrow into the sky. Jason realizes that Lu has stopped and asks if something is wrong, suddenly Lu falls off his horse with an arrow in his back.
Rescue from Without
They get help from a village full of monks and put Lu into a dojo to rest and get better. Jason afraid that Lu is going to die, Lu admits that he isn’t immortal to Jason. The only way to save Lu is the elixir of immortality held by the Jade Warlord. Jason requests to go fight the Jade army for the elixir that night, but the Silent Monk denies it and says they will leave in two nights when it is dark. Jason disobeys the Silent Monk and leaves to the Jade Empire on his horse with the staff to save Lu Yan’s life before he dies. Minutes later, the Silent Monk notices the staff is gone when he checks up on Lu and Jason has left alone.
The Supreme Ordeal
Since the Jade Warlord already promised it to the White Witch, so Jason and her must fight for the elixir. Jason loses the battle and the Jade Warlord orders his soldiers to execute him, but is saved by the Silent Monk, Golden Sparrow, and the monks from the village. While the Silent Monk distracts the Jade Warlord, Sparrow distracts the White Witch, and the monks distract the soldiers, Jason gets ahold of the elixir and tosses it back. The elixir lands in the hand of Lu Yan who is carried by the monks. Lu is revived and becomes immortal after drinking the elixir.
The Silent Monk tries to resurrect the Monkey King, but the Jade Warlord won’t let him. The Jade Warlord stabs and cuts the Silent Monk and the Monk throws the staff to Jason. Jason uses the staff to resurrect the Monkey King from being trapped in stone for 500 years. The Silent Monk lays down in front of the Monkey King, then suddenly turns into a piece of hair of the Monkey King. At that moment that’s when Jason figures out the Silent Monk was just one of the Monkey King’s clones. The Monkey King began to get his revenge on the Jade Warlord.
As they are fighting Sparrow wanted to get her revenge on the Jade Warlord, she throws a poisonous dart that can kill any immortal, at the Warlord. He counter attacks her with his chi magic, which slowly kills her. She would be known as the failed hero, who wasn’t successful at killing the Jade Warlord.
Jason got Golden Sparrow’s poisonous dart and struck it into Jade Warlord’s stomach, and watches him die slowly. Finally, the Jade Warlord died falling into a pit of lava.
After, the Jade Emperor and his wife, who would be considered a goddess, returned and granted Jason anything he would want. Jason wanted Golden Sparrow back to life, but there was nothing the Emperor could do. Next day, Jason said goodbye and he would never forget them. The Monkey King thanked Jason for rescuing him. Jason then went through the gate and fell off the rooftop.
Crossing the Return Threshold
Jason woke up in an alley, where Lupo and the thugs found him. Lupo pushed him against the wall telling Jason he better he better stay quiet about the shooting and robbery. Lupo constantly beat Jason until he couldn’t get up. Finally, Jason slowly got up to defend himself. He beat Lupo and scared the other thugs off.
Later, that night, he found Hop going into an ambulance. Realizing Hop was going to live and letting him know he returned the staff. As Jason walks away, he notices a girl in the crowd around the ambulance who looked exactly like Golden Sparrow. She asks if Hop was going to be okay and tells Jason he was very brave. They said bye to each other, and she left into a shop called the Golden Sparrow”, that she works at. After, Jason began to practice his kung-fu and became a changed man.
