The first Living Circle temple in the Circle Universe is located in Gyongxe. It heads the Living Circle religion, and is where the religion began. Jangbu Dokyi is the first Dedicate of the Temple, and is entrusted in guarding the Treasures — ancient artifacts of the Living Circle religion. The Treasures are magically protected in the Temple, so that only a few practitioners of the religion know that they are there.
When Yanjing threatens to invade Gyongxe for the material items that the temples and the people possess, Dokyi decides to remove the treasures from their place in the First Temple to a safer place: Temple of the Sealed Eye. He enlists the help of Dedicate Rosethorn for this task.
