Sword Emperor(English) also known as Geum-hwang(검황), real name is Dam Sin Woo(담신우) is the strongest of the Five White Sages. He is the creator of the Jang Baek Style and is the grandfather of Dam Hwa Rin. Said to be the leading figure of White Force.
Appeared to be an old man with a kind expression on his face, in the beginning he has short beard but as the story progress his beard becomes longer.
He's respected by many people, even those of Sinji who came to kill him when he became a "gatekeeper" to prevent Sinji warriors from swarming into Murim. He never killed Sinji warriors the first time they fought him, he just took the weapons and spared their lives
His personality can be said calm and righteous.
He is her grandfather and taught her Jang Baek Sword Style.
It's hinted that they were good friends back in the days (might still are). When Kwang and Hwa Rin was repeating their fight, Yu Mei Jin noted that the fight looks more like good friends having a good talk with each other rather rivalry fighting.
He also seems to have a good relationship with the late Goddess of the East, one of the 4 leaders of the Neutral Force.
It's said that he disbanded the Hyon Mu Guild 10 years ago to retire from Murim and went to Jang Baek Mountain, the people from his guild then followed him to Jang Baek Mountain and has lived there since. He then was saved by Han Bi Kwang after he had a duel with Cheon Ma Sin Gun, he later teached Kwang the Jang Baek Style and Kwang can also be considered his first disciple(unofficial). I think the first disciple is Yu Se Ha but its still unclear whether he have blood relationship with sword emperor or not.
Later in the manga, he was found to be the self-appointed gatekeeper to prevent the Sinji warriors from leaving their territory to attack Murim.
