Qian Xunji was the Supreme Pontiff during Tang Xiao and Tang Hao's generation. When he learnt about the incident between his people and Tang Hao, and especially when he learnt of Ah Yin's status, he sent down order that demanded the Clear Sky School to turn over both Tang Hao and Ah Yin.
Together with his troops, Qian Xunji chased the two until a confrontation that lead to Ah Yin's sacrifice to protect her husband and her child. Qian Xunji then battled Tang Hao, who only recently reached the realm of Titled Douluos, only to retreat with grave injuries. When he came back to the Spirit Hall, he was secretly killed by Bibi Dong, while his death has been contributed to his battle injuries. His father, Qian Daoliu, was furious and vowed to kill Tang Hao in retribution.
- Despite that he was mentioned in chapter 144 when Tang Hao mentioned his past to Tang San, Qian Xunji's real name was only mentioned in chapter 285.
