Sentinel: promo trailers

4) Vendetta

Dor Bo exposes his vengeance against Dowager Empress Xiao Zhuang for having his whole family executed.  Emperor KangXi says the execution was his idea. The power struggle for the throne between Emperor Kangxi and his 2nd brother, 2nd Lord Prince.

2nd Prince vows to re-gain what should have been his as the 'decreed' emperor.
Dor Bo vows to exact vengeance against his family's executors.

Per personal agenda, Dor Bo unites with 2nd Lord Prince to fight against Emperor Kangxi and Empress Dowager Xiao Zhuang.

TN:  Incidentally, in Domd 1989, Steven was Emperor Kangxi while Ching Ho Wai was Empress Dowager Xiao Zhuang.  In WTLB, Steven was Cao Ji with Ching Ho Wai as his mother. In On the track or off, Steven was Gam Yuen with Ching Ho Wai as his mother, again.  Of course, they played mother and son again in A Watchdog's Tale. 

Narrator: "Unraveling the intricate secrets within the Forbidden City." 
3) A mysterious minor character changes the destiny of the Qing Dynasty.

Gist: In the 60 odd years of Kangxi's rule, the person who contributed the most was not the Qing emperor or the Empress Dowager XiaoZhung, but an obscure minor character.  Steven: You can't even beat me, how can you be an imperial guard?

1) The mystery of Kangxi's succession to the throne.
