Synopsis[edit]

The legend of the team Pi Li MIT secretly protecting Sheng Ying School was never publicly acknowledged but nonetheless spread wildly among the student body. But for some reason, the team was disbanded and evil began to wreak havoc in the school after years of peace. Students targeted are those who received an anonymous CD, containing a PC-game, from someone called Hei Gui (Black Ghost). The last remaining member of the secret team, Teacher Cherry, decides to recruit the best students, "007" (Zhan Shi De), "187" (Qian Fu Hao), "747" (Huang Hui Hong) and "Tian Mo Xing" (Li Xiao Xing), to form a new generation of Pi Li MIT to solve the crimes and restore the school to its former glory. The new generation of Pi Li MIT must not only find out who the "Black Ghost" is, but also work together and resolve their differences while unlocking the secrets of the school, the students, and themselves.

Character Profiles[edit]

  • Tao Mei Ren (陶美人) – Miss Cherry (Cherry 老師)
Daughter of Sheng Ying School's principal, and the leader and founder of Pi Li MIT. She acts as counselor in the school. Cherry is very good at observing people around her, and so finds the four students; Zhan Shi De (007), Li Xiao Xing (Tian Mo Xing), Huang Hui Hong (747) and Qian Fu Hao (187), her best choices in making members of her team.
She hopes to be the guiding light of students, and never fails to spot those who are feeling guilty. One of her other skills include acting.
It was later revealed that she lied about being part of the last Pi Li MIT, and that she was the one who caused the last Pi Li MIT to split up; with the leader breaking his leg when trying to help her. She has felt guilty ever since then.
She is later found out to be the half-sister of Lu Ke Ying and Li Xiao Xing.
After the games were over, she became the substitute principal of Sheng Ying College while her father is in America with Teacher Angel and Lu Ke Ying.
  • Zhan Shi De (詹士德) – 007
The male protagonist of Mysterious Incredible Terminator. He is the son of a famous international detective named Dr. James, and an unofficial member of Pi Li MIT. Zhan Shi De aimed to enter the police academy as their best intern, but because he suffered from Ménière's disease, a disease he has had since childhood, his place in the academy was dismissed. He was later sent to Sheng Ying School and was immediately appointed by Teacher Cherry to join Pi Li MIT under the codename "007", as their most intelligent member. Though he did not want to be a member of the group at first, he eventually finds the interest of being a part of it.
His intelligence goes beyond most people, but his cold personality shields away his feelings, which makes it difficult for him to let his teammate, Tian Mo Xing, know how he feels about her. His love life becomes more complicated when he finds out that his other teammate, 747, is in love with Tian Mo Xing. He always seems to smile whenever something is related to Tian Mo Xing.
Eventually, he accepts Tian Mo Xing just before he finds out that she is one of the culprits behind the dangerous games, but also finds her unwilling to continue and decides to solve the mystery to free her from the ties.
  • Li Xiao Xing (李曉星) – Tian Mo Xing (天魔星)
The female protagonist of Mysterious Incredible Terminator. She is the adopted daughter of a fortune teller named "Fan Lian Xin". Her innocence and acting skills make her the perfect secret agent. Her potential skills include following her own instincts, which always leads her to trouble. Her codename in Pi Li MIT is "Tian Mo Xing", meaning "Heaven Devil Star"; a name mixed with "Sirius" and "Voldemort". She wants to publish a horror novel, but since she lacks the inspiration, she decides to make use of everything that happens within the school as inspiration.
Tian Mo Xing is very fond of 007, who also has feelings for her, though he tries to hide it. Her love life becomes more complicated when she finds out 747 also has feelings for her. But it eventually decreases when 747 decides to walk away and 007 finally decides to accept her.
It was later found out that Li Xiao Xing is actually Teacher's Angel's abandoned daughter and Lu Ke Ying's twin sister. In addition, she is the half-sister of Teacher Cherry. She has been helping her brother with the games from the beginning, but truthfully, she didn't want to play the games or hurt anyone. In the end, she decides to truly join Pi Li MIT to stop her brother.
  • Huang Hui Hong (黃輝宏) – 747
Very masculine and filled with justice senses. Aims to be the hero whenever something happens. He has been predicted to not be able to live to the age of twenty, which is why he finds joining Pi Li MIT a great opportunity to do something extraordinary before he dies. His codename in the team is "747". Though he lacks intelligence, his speed and hearing goes beyond most people.
He is very fond of the team's girl member, Tian Mo Xing, but his feelings become shrouded when he finds out that she likes 007. After getting provoked by 007 and finding out that he might have a chance to change his fate after all, he decides to reveal his feelings to Tian Mo Xing and declares a rivalry with 007. But in the end, he sees the strong bond between Tian Mo Xin and 007 and decides to give up. After he finds out Tian Mo Xing is one of the game culprits, he still trusts her wholeheartedly.
Since Huang Hui Hong has an overwhelming sense of justice, it is possible that he is the first to join Pi Li MIT.
  • Qian Fu Hao (錢富豪) – 187
Son of a rich family with an elegant personality and the looks of an idol. He has electrifying eyes, and gathers information from the girls who chase after him. Because of this, Fu Hao is appointed to Pi Li MIT as the most resourceful member under the codename "187". He was kidnapped once as a child, and almost drowned. Somehow, he received a necklace noting "MIT" from the kidnapping, which comes from Pi Li MIT of 1993. Because he almost drowned that time, he had been afraid of fish and the ocean ever since. When one of the game players made him relive the experience, he is reminded that he was kidnapped along with a childhood best friend and lost touch with him after the kidnappers separated them. And the game player was actually his long-lost friend.
A running joke is that he always nicknames his girls "Bao Bei" ("Precious"). And though he is somewhat of a pervert, he is also chivalric.
187 often teases 007, Tian Mo Xing and 747 for their triangle relationship before 007 and Tian Mo Xing became a couple.
  • Lu Ya Qi (陸雅琪) – Teacher Angel (天使老師)
Known as "the God of Death teacher" and "Teacher Angel" for her strict personality. She accepts no mistake in her work. Because she never seems to get any older, people describe her as the devil.
She is very protective of her son Lu Ke Ying and looks up to people with power and order. And so despises Pi Li MIT because it is gathered with blacklisted students.
Turns out, she was a member of Pi Li MIT between 1989 and 1993. Because she accidentally got pregnant with the principal's children, she was paid by his wife to secretly give birth to her children in America, and has kept their father's identity a secret over the years.
She is trying to create a group called the "Genius Revolution Project" gathered with students that have gone against Pi Li MIT.
Lu Ya Qi gave Li Xiao Xing (Her daughter) to her best friend, Fang Lian Xin, when she was just a baby.
She went to America with her son and ex-lover (the principal) after everything was over to treat her son's illness.
  • Lu Ke Ying (陸克英)
The son of Lu Ya Qi. He was often bullied by his classmates for being protected by his mother and for having no father. Ke Ying grew up without a real family, and had lived with a mental illness since childhood.
For some reason, he is always involved in Pi Li MIT's cases.
It is later found out that he is Li Xiao Xing's twin brother and that he is also the one behind all of the dangerous games. In addition, he is half-siblings with Teacher Cherry. He is using the games to see if his mother truly loves the school or him and his twin sister Li Xiao Xing, and at the same time get back at the principal, who is actually his father.
When his sister falls in love with Pi Li MIT's member, 007, and tells him she wants to stop the games, he becomes more than determined to play to the end.
