I will earn my lost pride with my own life! I am not a mere man who wash horses for others, so I don't need to only be prideful in front of women! All I want is to make this whole world bow in front of me!
~ Qi Tongwei's most famous quote
Screw you, God!
~ Qi Tongwei's final words before committing suicide

Qi Tongwei (simplified Chinese: 祁同伟) is the secondary antagonist of the 2017 Chinese TV drama series In the Name of People.

Before his downfall, he held the position of the Sheriff of Police Department in Jingzhou City, Handon Province. He was one of the students of Gao Yuliang and a prefect to Hou Liangping and Chen Hai. He is also one of the three most pivotal figures in Zhao Ruilong's ring of corruption (alongside Gao Xiaoqin and Cheng Du), as well as Hou Liangping's archenemy and rival.

He is portrayed by Xu Yajun.


Qi Tongwei was once a city hero. He won his pride for more than a decade with his own hardworking. He was a mysterious man who was known for disguising himself as well as his non-convetional thinking. In front of the public, he was a man with good publicity, but he had his own hidden dark side behind his good publicity.

Later in the story, Qi Tongwei revealed his darker nature. He was revealed to be the lover of Gao Xiaoqin, the leader of the controversial Shanshui Inc. Desired to become the vice-governer of Handong, Qi did awful crimes behind publicity. His relationship with Liang Lu, his rich yet selfish wife, became intense while he was secretly observed by his wife. It was him who hit Chen Hai with a car in an attempt murder, and it was him who secretly called Ding Yizhen and made him got away with his crime. As the time passes, Qi became more and more reckless, ignoring his master's warning and went on a road of no return. In the end, after his final expose, Qi committed suicide out of sheer remorse.

However, Qi was also a tragic villain, especially about his marriage with Liang Lu. Despite marrying Liang Lu for her father's high places, Qi exchanged with his own self-esteem for the marriage. after Liang Lu humilated him for several times secretly, especially when she dumped the bouquet Qi sent to her into garbage can. Liang even forced Qi to kneel in front of a crowd to propose her, showing just how Qi Tongwei fell in love with her so desperately and how she overpower a male like him. Qi Tongwei once loved with Chen Yang, the elder sister of Chen Hai, but Liang Lu eventually caused them to break up for a so-called reason known as "a test for love", and she indirectly caused Qi Tongwei's ultimate corruption as well as his love affair with Gao Xiaoqin.

Therefore, in this entire story, Qi Tongwei was both a villain and victim.
