Nobody knows Edge
Master's real name, when or where he was born or how he became the great
master of the Ling Sheng Su Temple. Each new chief of the temple simply
knows that he is well versed in almost every weapon known to man. He descends
from the mountains to initiate the successors of the three treasures and
teach them the secret arts of the temple. These facts show that Edge Master
had lived an extremely long time, but none of the previous chiefs or successors
of the treasures know the truth about him because he never talks about
himself. The person who probably knew the most about him was Kilik.
After the destruction of the temple, Edge Master took Kilik in and taught
him to suppress the Evil Seed which had inhabited his body. He trained
Kilik for three years, and the bright young man mastered most of the secret
arts of the Ling Sheng Su Style rod. As a final trial to test Kilik's skill
and to help him resist the Evil Seed, Edge Master sent Kilik west to find
Soul Edge. After Kilik left, the master devoted his mind to deep meditation.
He had always believed in destiny, but something stirred in him. It might
be worth challenging the stream of history again, he thought, to cut his
own path through destiny and create the future. But, for reasons known
only to himself, Edge Master knew this was not his place and awaited Kilik's
Once the Soul Edge was destroyed, he would finally be able to rest.
Kilik returned after Soul Edge was destroyed. Edge Master was glad to see
that the warrior had been up to the challenge, but he still had one test
left for him. Edge Master attacked Kilik using evil energy to teach Kilik
how to master evil by using it. Kilik successfully defended himself, and
thus passed Edge Master's final test. Was there some connection between
Edge Master and the Soul Edge? We may never really know.
