Wayne Lai and Raymond Cho were sold into the palace and became eunuchs at a young age. The two were very close with each other and their mentor, Chung King-fei. Eventually, both gained the trust of Empress Dowager Cixi (Michelle Yim). Regrettably, Raymond is overcome by greed, causing his friendship with Wayne to gradually fade. The Head of Eunuch, Elliot Ngok, feels threatened by Wayne and Raymond’s rise to prominence. He plots against them, but Wayne is saved by two other palace servants, Nancy Wu and Raymond Wong.
