Elsa first fell in love with silk researcher and flute master Ma Rong in Chengdu, and later developed feelings with tattoo artist Jianmin in Paris.
Ma Rong provided her with a sense of belonging in life, while Jianmin tattooed a night peacock on her body, leaving an unforgettable imprint.
The former found a type of silk that met his ideals - the Night Peacock, while the latter forever marked the butterfly-turned Night Peacock on Elsa's skin.
