Huo Yuhao was born as the son of the Duke of the White Tiger Clan and his personal maid. Following the Duke's departure to the on-going war, the Duchess took over the reins of the manor and, being jealous and seeing Huo Yuhao as a threat to her children, secluded him and his mother in a shack making up stories that she contracted an infectious disease. This plus the malnourishment caused Huo Yuhao's mother, who already had a weak constitution, to fall sick and die when Huo Yuhao was 10 years old. He vowed to become a great Spirit Master and take revenge.
At the age of 6 he awakened his spirit, an extremely rare variant body spirit known as Spirit Eyes. However at the time of awakening his Spirit Power was only at rank 1 and it took him 5 years to get to rank 10 which is 2 years more than what people usually take.
