Qin Shihuang was the first Emperor of China and had previously stabbed the Dagger of Xian into his heart to become a Dragon and lead his armies into many conquests. They battled the Tibetan monks at the Great Wall of China. In that battle, one of the monks removed the Dagger from the Emperor and the Emperor's body fell to the ground and melted down to the bones.
