So the character might be a “Bronze Rank 3 Fighter” or be working up from “Level One White Mage” to “Level 99 Black Mage”, with the colors designating approximate level of spiritual development.) All cultivated beings have some pool of Qi Points (Magic Points) which they use to enhance their physical abilities and cast magical spells. (Often this is called a “Soul Realm” or “Spiritual Energy”.) Magic and magic items are plentiful in the setting, but are pretty much only used for fighting, healing and levelling up.

(Commonly, to be absorbed by the MC to help further their Leveling.) Often the MC will get one of these monsters as a pet early in the story, which will be his companion and level up with him.
