Jing Lian is a month away from turning sixteen, an age by Emei Sect mandate, when the student must put her skills to the test in the “Peach Blossom Trials”, a key consideration factor on whether she will receive the “Maiden’s Five Flowing Methods” manual and be held in contention to become the future sect leader of Emei Sect.

Of course, the young and fun loving Jing Lian has no desire for such an ambition. When pushed to work by sister Fan Hua, (her appointed guardian and fierce protector), Jing Lian would often dismiss the necessity of the trials by declaring her vote to Fan Hua on becoming Emei Sect’s future leader, only to receive a light knock on the head from an agitated but blushing Fan Hua. Jing Lian is elated at the prospect of Fan Hua becoming their sect leader but cringes at the thought of herself having to take on such a burden. In truth, her real passion is to see the sights of Jianghu, go in search of adventures and experience exciting new thrills.

While neither the strongest nor wisest fighter, Jing Lian makes up for it with her speed and agility. When traveling the Jianghu, the distance she could cover in a day is unmatched and her ability to leap from rooftop to rooftop and from branch to branch is a sight to behold. When traveling at her full speed, it even seems that she is able to travel on air and water!
