Loose Immortals (散仙) [San Xian] –
While in the Mortal Realm, Immortals who had attained at least the Yuanying stage in their martial cultivation, and had their physical bodies scattered into pieces during their Six of Nine Heavenly Tribulations or Nine of Nine Heavenly Tribulations, but managed to preserve their Yuanying in the process become Loose Immortals.
These Loose Immortals, in turn, have twelve Heavenly Tribulations. Loose Immortals of the First, Second and Third Tribulation have varying degrees of power. Loose Immortals of the Fourth Tribulation typically have the same capabilities as a First Tier Heavenly Immortal, and respectively, Loose Immortals of the Twelfth Tribulation typically have the same capabilities as a Ninth Tier Heavenly Immortal. When Loose Immortals overcome their Twelfth Tribulation, they will ascend and become Golden Immortals.
