"This woman. Bloomed from the most beautiful garden, but....her growth is shrouded in mystery."

0 · 44 views · located in Huang Kingdom

a character in “Chi and the Four Kingdoms”, originally authored by Jaybt9, as played by RolePlayGateway


Name: Lady Butterfly

Chinese Name: Ying-Tai is her given name. No one knows her family name.

Role: The Dancer

Age: 18

Fighting Style: Her fighting style is unnamed. Much of her fighting is influenced by her dancing abilities, as well as acrobatics, and flexibility. She also knows a secret technique that no one else knows about. No one even knows of the technique even existing, except very few, because Ying-Tai has never used it. She has a great memory of her ability as well. Her weapon style is Tai Ji Jian; swiftness in speed, while fluid in style. Her "sword dancing" is described to many as if she was "cutting through an army".

Weapon: Also being influenced by her fighting style, her weapon is the Tai Ji Jian, or Straight Sword. It's white in appearance, and the words "A wing can split through any path" are engraved, in Chinese, onto the sword. Her sword was engraved by a Ning Kingdom native, yet it was intended for her to be used as "sword dancing", but it was really for its literal term.

Appearance: Standing at an average height of 5'7", her figure is quite slim, yet athletic because of her active abilities. Her skin is slightly pale, but what makes her stand is her blush pink lips, along with her dark brown eyes. Her clothing style is described as "provocative" and "tempting" for its time. She much prefer light shades of clothing than darks.

-Rumors has it that she smells of lavender once she enters a room.

Personality: To men, they don't know of her personality; no emotions, no motives, no feelings. All they know is her status, and being one of the most well known dancers in all of China. Besides, they focus more on her unique beauty and entertainment than her, in person. They just want her to dance, and satisfy their fantasies. In person, her essence is very serene and calm. People would think that a butterfly had taken her soul, morphing her into this maiden raising from a cocoon. She isn't very outgoing and flamboyant. Instead, she tends to be silent while she is with a crowd of people. She has experienced war, and bloodshed before Her first experience was not a pretty sight to witness. She barely fights, yet when the time is right, she will do so. She also has an extreme hate for one Kingdom, in particular, yet she isn't familiar with the kingdom as far as appearance goes, so she doesn't know the name of it, nor the ruler.

Her past is shrouded in mystery. No one knows where she was born, and no one knows how she lived as a little girl. The story of Lady Butterfly started when she was mid way between a caterpillar and a cocoon. She knocked on a woman's door, standing at the wooden steps with a dirty and disassembled appearance. Her hair was in disarray, and she looked as though her face had been flooded in tears. She was 9 at the time.

The next years of her life became a rather developmental one, as she was trained rigorously by her adoptive mother in dancing, singing, and the sword style of Tai Ji Jian, and she spent most of her life training instead of anything else, waiting for her time to break away from that cocoon. Eventually she did, at age 16, performing her first dance to a crowd. Even though she was nervous, she was given a standing ovation, and became quite recognized in China.

At age 18, she has quite the reputation for her beautiful talents, but as the Chi arrives unnoticed and unexpectedly, she has no choice, but to fight.

So begins...
