Long Haochen is the protagonist of Shen Ying Wang Zuo.
As a little boy, he appeared malnourished and extremely thin, but as he grew up, he began to be more sturdy despite being slender. He is extremely handsome and considered to be even prettier than girls and thus sometimes is mistaken for a girl. He has black hair, naturally supple eyebrows, big eyes, long eyelashes, a straight nose, white skin, and bright red colored lips. His eyes were originally dark blue in color but they became golden following his awakening. He is said to be "carved" from Bai Yue's (His Mother) appearance.
After receiving Eternal Heart, his hair colour changed to golden blonde.

Long Haochen has a personality that makes him ideally suited to be a Knight. He is kind and compassionate. He deeply cares about the ones he loves and will not hesitate to protect them, even at the cost of his life. He has a strong sense of justice. He is modest and fair. He does not disregard the promises he has made and tries his utmost to keep them. He is very determined and perseveres through many obstacles, no matter how difficult they are.
Long Haochen lived with his mother a weaver, who earned a meager income barely able to sustain them. But Long Haochen never complained and worked harder in order to take care of her frail body. He joined Odin Hall to become a Knight in order to receive Elemental Training Liquid which he thought improved the condition of his mother. He was very determinate and worked harder than anyone else, always arriving to train one hour earlier and leaving one hour later, from the training time.
Town of Odin
Long Haochen arrives at the Squire Knight examination determined to pass the examination so he could keep obtaining the Elemental Training Liquid which he secretly puts in his mother's food in order to strengthen her.
He unleashes his full strength but ends up with a level of 9 thus failing the test. He then asks Balza to allow him to retake the test but Balza declines stating that it would be unfair to others who had failed. So he turns to all the apprentice Knights and kneels down begging them to allow him to retake the test. The youths who always had a good opinion of him asks Balza to let him take the test. Thus Balza allows him to retake it given the condition that he beat Jiang Hu in a one on one battle who had already passed. Long Haochen then battles against Jiang Hu and manages to win against him and thus retakes the test and manages to obtain a Spiritual Energy level of 11 which allows him to pass.
Having received the Elemental Training Liquid he goes into the forest west of Odin in order to pick up some vegetables to mix with the Elemental Training Liquid to mask its taste.
There he happens to encounter a young girl covered in bruises, dirt and blood who happens to be Cai'er. As she is mute, she converses with Long Haochen by writing lines on the ground and seeks his help.
Long Haochen then immediately carries her to a spot covered by bushes and covers her smell with herbs, thus masking her scent which is used to track her down. The pursuers lost her scent and then a white-clothed assassin arrives to take Cai'er. Thinking that he means to do her harm, Long Haochen tries to protect but is knocked out.
When he comes to, he finds the people had disappeared and he is left with the 'Forget-Me-Not' ring. He also feels much stronger than he had been before. Then he returns home to his mother while praying for the safety of the girl he met.
The following day he meets his new teacher, Long Xing Yu who takes him to the summit of the Odin Mountain where he has a house. For the following year, Long Haochen learns various things including sword styles, abilities, history and returns home to his mother only on the weekends. Every weekend as he returns home he encounters magical beast, who he fights against. He is at all time put in a pitch black cave and made to battle to battle thousands of owl ants until he passes out from exhaustion, upon which he is soaked in a medicinal tub and afterward was made to meditate rather than sleep. After one year, he is sent to Hao Yue City to receive the Standard Knight examination and to complete a 2nd Step mission in the Adventurer's Guild.
Hao Yue City
After he arrives at the Hao Yue Hall he is stopped by the guards but is taken in by Li Xin to meet Nalan Shu. After meeting with him and handing over the letter given to him by Xingyu, he is taken to undergo the Standard Knight Examination where he achieves a Spiritual Energy of 107, thus becoming a Standard Knight. He then as per instructions of his teacher battles against Li Xin who is a Genuine Knight. Using his abilities he obstructs all her attacks and withstands them thus managing to fulfill the wishes of Xingyu. He receives a Standard Knight Insignia and an Awakening Stone from Nalan Shu and then departs to the Adventurer's Guild.
After he arrives at the Adventurer's Guild Luo Saihu insults him and his mother causing him to be infuriated and thus he issues a challenge to fight to the death which Luo Saihu accepts. Luo Saihu is then killed by Long Haochen and following his death, his friends try to attack him but they are dispersed by the Li Xin's arrival.
Li Xin then accompanies Haochen while he finishes his 2nd Step mission, protecting but not interfering with it. The two of them bond very quickly and Li Xin takes him back to the Town of Odin.
When Haochen returns a day early from his assignment, he sees his mother sitting on Xingyu's lap causing Haochen to become enraged and attack him due to the misunderstanding that he is bullying her. Xingyu meets Haochen's charge and easily subdue him and then reveals that he is Haochen's father. The three of them, then move to the house in the Odin Mountain since there doesn't need to be any secrets anymore.
Using the Awakening Stone, Xingyu helps Haochen to undergo the Sacred Awakening. Haochen achieves an Innate Spiritual Energy of 97, which changes the color of his eyes to golden. This shocks Xingyu and he forbids him from revealing it to anyone, although he is ecstatic of the outcome. Haochen is given the choice to choose to be either a Guardian Knight or a Retribution Knight, of which he picks Guardian Knight. However, since he wishes to fight the 72 Demon Gods as well, Xingyu wishes to teach him both Guardian Knight and Retribution Knight skills since he has the physique of the Scion of Light.
A year and a half pass by with Haochen strenuously practicing the abilities of a Retribution Knight. One day Xingyu senses an attack on the town of Odin by the Demon Race and go with Haochen to witness it. Haochen wishes to go fight them but is stopped by Xingyu who reveals his true might as the Divine Knight Adjudicator revealing the Divine Throne of Doom and Slaughter and utterly annihilates the Werewolves who attacked the town of Odin.
Long Xingyu bestows Haochen the Saint Spiritual Stove and an Inheritance Ring and tells him to enroll in the Hao Yue Hall to train as a Guardian Knight. While Haochen is binding with the Saint Spiritual Stove, he leaves along with Bai Yue and when Haochen comes to having finished with the binding he sees a letter left by his father telling him not to look for him until he becomes a 7th Step Knight and having received a Silver Foundation Warrior Armor.
Haochen arrives at Hao Yue Hall meets with Li Xin and hugs her on their reunion, as he feels Li Xin was truly like an older sister to him. He then meets with Nalan Shu who excitedly inquires whether it was Xingyu who annihilated the Demon Race who invaded the other day. After giving the letter that Xingyu left for Nalan Shu, he is enrolled in Hao Yue Hall awaiting to receive his training as a Guardian Knight. After testing his spiritual energy which turns out to be 268, Li Xin takes Haochen for dinner.
At the restaurant, he meets Lin Jialu who immediately gets into a fight with Li Xin. Li Xin makes a bet with her by pitting him against one of Lin Jialu's attendants. However, Haochen having never fought a Mage before requests Lin Jialu to fight against him which she accepts. He manages to defeat Lin Jialu, which causes Li Xin to be ecstatic and kiss him on the cheek, making Haochen blush. She then states that she made such a bet in order to give it to Haochen which elevates his love for Li Xin as a sister.
The following day he attends the class and meets Ye Hua. As the whole class is made to run 50 laps, Ye Hua allows Haochen to challenge him and if he is able to push him back, he will be exempted from running as is the rule of newcomers. Thus Haochen comes at Ye Hua and attacks him, but is easily thrown back the first two times. However, on his third attempt he ingeniously makes Ye Hua retreat half a step and thus Ye Hua admits his defeat. Ye Hua then takes him to Nalan Shu and states that Haochen will be his disciple from then and he will be trained in secret away from all the other Knights.
Knights' Sacred Mountain
Two years go by with Haochen constantly training under the guidance of Ye Hua. After Haochen reaches a 1,000 Spiritual Energy, Ye Hua takes Haochen to the Knights' Sacred Mountain in order to obtain a mount. While on the way Haochen reveals to Ye Hua that his Innate Internal Spiritual Energy is 97 and that he has the Saint Spiritual Stove which shocks Ye Hua extremely and to utterly lose his composure. At the Knights' Sacred Mountain he meets Gui Ying and Gui Wu, whom he instantly takes a disliking to. They arrive at the Elder Guardian who guards the entrance to Knights' Sacred Mountain and after he confirms Haochen's age he is given a tile and advises and is sent off into the Knights' Sacred Mountain.
Haochen travels around the Knights' Sacred Mountain and comes across a Starlight Unicorn. Haochen communicates with him and inquires if he would become his mount but the Starlight Unicorn declines stating he is not qualified to become the mount of the Scion of Light and also that within the Knights' Sacred Mountain there is none who is qualified. He then helps rebuff and attack from Gui Wu and leaves. Although disheartened by the Starlight Unicorn's words, he keeps searching for the allocated 30 days but is unable to find any magical beast to become a mount and thus returns empty-handed.
The Elder Guardian then offers him a choice whether to summon a magical beast from the Transport Array at the summit of the Knights' Sacred Mountain or to look for a magical beast in the future. Haochen decides to try his luck and summon a magical beast and thus goes along with the Elder Guardian and Ye Hua to the summit of the Knights' Sacred Mountain. Within the Transport Array Haochen tries to find a suitable magical beast and even after the time limit is up he perseveres through willpower and finally manages to find a magical beast willing to form a Contract of Equals with him.
However, the magical beast turns out to be a seemingly useless 2nd Step Earthfire Lizard which confuses Haochen and astonishes the Elder Guardian and Ye Hua. Ye Hua tries to kill it but is stopped by Haochen who states that no matter what, he will protect this magical beast who became his mount. hen he is about to heal the injuries of the magical beast he is stopped by the Elder Guardian who states that it is of the Darkness Attribute which would kill it as soon as it steps off the Knights Sacred Mountain. The Elder Guardian seeing Haochen's reluctance to give up the magical beast, he states that the only way to cleanse the Darkness Attribute from its body is by transferring his blood to the magical beast thus changing its physique to that of Light Attribute. Thus Hoachen begins the procedure of cleansing the Darkness Attribute from the magical beast. Slowly the darkness attribute disappears from its body, although it takes many minutes for it to be completely washed away at which point, most of Haochen's blood is lost causing him to tether into the realm of death.
The magical beast stops Ye Hua from helping Haochen, undergoes an evolution and then transfuses its own blood to strengthen Haochen and forms a Blood Contract. And so Haochen regains his strength and names his mount as Hao Yue.
Demon Raid Team Selection Competition
After forming a contract with Hao Yue, Ye Hua prepares Long Haochen to be in his peak condition for the Demon Raid Team Selection Competition for half of a year. However just before the competition Hao Yue encounters a Stone Orb at the auction house in the Holy Union. Lin Jialu buys the stone for Haochen to settle a debt she owed him for saving her life. Hao Chen eats the orb and returns to his home world to evolve. Long Hao Chen and knights from his temple head to the Holy Union Alliance's headquarters where the competition will be held.

|“||As a man, I must protect you.||”|
—Long Hao Chen, to Cai'er when the pursuers tracking her down, gets close.
|“||Teacher, since two years ago, you devotedly taught me all kind of things regarding Guardian Knight knowledge and skills. You were very strict, forcing me into a life full of beating and scolding, but deep inside, I knew that you did all of that for my own good. When I followed Father to train, his guidance was completely different to yours. Without you, I wouldn’t have grown so much. I heard Nalan Hall Master say that I was your sole disciple. You did not hold back any of the knowledge you acquired in your many years when teaching me. How could Haochen be unable to recognize your good intentions? In Haochen’s heart, you are a father as well as a master. To others, my secret will forever remain secret, but to you, I am willing to reveal it, as you are like a father to me.||”|
—Long Haochen, preparing to tell Ye Hua his Innate Spiritual Energy.
