Sun Ruowei is one of the female protagonists in the online novel “Tomb Robbing Notes”. The entire image is described as a quiet, beautiful, intelligent, and witty woman. She, along with Wu Xie, Zhang Qiling, and others, takes risks to decipher the truth, strives to uphold fairness, constantly advances, and ultimately achieves success, winning a large number of fans. Today we are going to talk about who is the historical character prototype of Sun Ruowei?
Firstly, we need to understand the background and creative process of the novel written by Nan Pai San Shu, the creator of “Tomb Robbing Notes”. Nan Pai San Shu is a pen name, but his true identity is still unknown. According to the narrative in the novel, Sun Ruowei’s prototype is a real female archaeologist who, along with other characters in the novel, has conducted many archaeological explorations and achieved excellent results, becoming a recognized excellent archaeologist in the industry.
From the personal experience and background analysis of the Third Uncle of the Southern School, it is not difficult to find that he is very interested in ancient culture and history, and has also participated in certain research and exploration. Therefore, the Third Uncle of the Southern School may have cited the experiences and images of some historical characters as character prototypes in his novel creation, thereby enriching the plot and character images of the novel.
Based on this, we infer that the identity of Sun Ruowei’s prototype is the late famous Chinese female archaeologist Zhao Puchu. Zhao Puchu was born in Huaxian, Shaanxi Province in 1907. Later, he was admitted to the Chinese History Museum and studied archaeology, becoming a professor at Renmin University of China and Central University for Nationalities. Her research subjects are very extensive, and one of her important tasks is to excavate the famous treasure house – the Ming and Qing Palace Collection, which has better protected China’s palace cultural relics and become a part of the government collection institute.
In addition, Zhao Puchu also participated in many important archaeological projects, such as the Huashan Longquanyi Site, Qinghai Sandland Site, the former Xi’an Zhouzhuang Shang Dynasty Site, and the Huainan Uprising Site, all of which achieved good results. She has also won multiple honorary titles and awards for her outstanding performance, becoming a highly respected academic authority and renowned female scholar.
Overall, Zhao Puchu, the prototype of Sun Ruowei, is a brave, intelligent, and determined female scholar who has made significant contributions to the study and protection of Chinese cultural heritage. She and Sun Ruowei have certain similarities in appearance and certain personality traits, which means that the novel author may have made some creative applications in character “shaping”. Although there is no absolute connection between the two, Sun Ruowei’s existence still reflects a respect and respect for outstanding female scholars in China.
