  • The Atoner: In her childhood she mistakenly kills a young Taoist trainee trying to free her and Rongrong due to mistrust of humans. The trainee forgives her, noting that trusting the wrong humans can cost spirits their lives.

As such, she has never claimed the lives of any Taoist that attacks Tushan, even healing them and letting them go after defeating them.
  • Debt Detestor: Hates owing anything, be it favours or money.
  • Close-Range Combatant: A Lightning Bruiser with {Super Strength}}.
