Baek Ju is a member of Bi Yeong Pal Mu until its eventual dissolution.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Baek Ju is quite confident in her skills and has quite an appetite for direct combats, usually opting for head-on attacks towards her enemies and deviating plans of attack within her unit if she can. Nevertheless, she obeys her superior's methodical schemes during operations.
She is also quite boisterous, blunt, and tends to voice out her opinions without reservation, even in front of the king himself. As she once stated, she does not want to die or be killed early similar to her former subordinate Baek Ryung, despite being affiliated with an organization that deals with danger. Moreover, she seems to be close with her subordinate Baek Ah, who is usually seen with her during Bi Yeong Pal Mu operations.
Plot[edit | edit source]
Compact Heist Arc[edit | edit source]
One midnight, Baek Ju alongside Baek Ah tails the Crimson Moon and Yi Jeok as the two have stolen the compact hidden in the Chief State Councilor's residence. While in pursuit, she curls the Crimson Moon's ankle with her lasso and exclaims in catching him. The Crimson Moon then removes the lasso and pulls it towards him then kicks Baek Ju in the face. He then throws a smoke bomb and eventually escapes. As Heuk Rang throws a poisoned dagger into the Crimson Moon, she and Baek Ah are ordered to search for him everywhere.
Rebel Army Suppression: Setting in Motion[edit | edit source]
Following King Jin Won's incident at Moon's End Village that almost cost him his life, Baek Ju is assigned to guard the king per Heuk Rang's strict orders. As Won heads to Yoo Dan Ah's residence to check on her condition, Baek Ju, Baek Lin, and Baek Sa follow the king quite obviously nearby, much to Won's annoyance. As Baek Ju remarks how she does not want to end up killed like Baek Ryung, Baek Lin immediately shuts her mouth. Won then orders them to follow him from the shadows, which they do, and Baek Lin reprimands Baek Ju, hitting her on the head.
Rebel Army Suppression: Execution[edit | edit source]
Bi Yeong Pal Mu split into two units in eradicating the rebel army. Baek Ju is assigned to the unit led by Heuk Rang, which razed Bi Hwa Rim, the rebel army's headquarters, utilizing a strategy that trapped the rebels in escaping a fire. As the rebels fled from the mountain engulfed in an inferno towards a safer area behind the mountain, Bi Yeong Pal Mu forces await and corner them at that area, urging them to surrender or killing them if they resisted.
In the midst of the operation, Baek Ju grows uninterested with capturing the rebels at the mountains in a rather slow-mannered process, regretting that she was not assigned with Baek Ah's unit at Yu Hyang Ru. She tries to go up the mountain to personally fight the rebels, but Heuk Rang stops her and tells her not to underestimate the enemies, claiming that they were trained by an ex-royal guard.
Minister Retrieval Arc[edit | edit source]
Baek Ju takes part in cornering the Crimson Moon at the king's chambers by using the ex-Left Minister Seo In Seon Woo. After coming face-to-face with the rebels, Heuk Rang wafts through the smoke bomb that Gil Mu Jin released. To his dismay, the captain faces the rest of the Bi Yeong Pal Mu outside the king's chambers waiting for their ambush. They all wonder where the rebels have disappeared to.
Eventually, as the captain and his subordinates escape the flooded tunnel caused by the rebels, Heuk Rang angrily orders to locate the rebels immediately. After turning the lights on, the rebels are found. Baek Ah instructs Baek Ju to chase after the rebel who carries the ex-minister, but Baek Ju reasons out that, as they split up, each of them appears to be carrying the ex-minister. In any case, Heuk Rang orders the two of them to merely chase all three of them.
Crimson Moon Rebellion[edit | edit source]
As the rebel army's revolt commences, Baek Ju assists Bi Yeong Pal Mu in defending the palace. At some point, Baek Ju and Baek Lin notify Heuk Rang that Hyun Bin and her daughter are not in their quarters, suggesting that someone else might have gotten to them first. Heuk Rang then assigns Baek Ju to locate them, while he tasks Baek Lin to accompany him to the Queen Mother's quarters.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Her name in Hanja (白珠) means "white pearl". Like the other members of Bi Yeong Pal Mu, her alias was formed out of an adjectival color and a noun.
