Character Info

◎ Character's Name: Hong Meiling (Meiling Hong in western order)
◎ Character's Canon: Touhou Project
◎ Character's Age: Several Hundred years old, Looks to be about 20-25
◎ Canon Point: Post Hisoutensoku (What she has been in) and the end of Animus
◎ Background/History: CANON 1, CANON 2
◎ Is the character a hacker and/or do they have a sixth-sense? She has the ability to manipulate Qi/Ki so there is a possibility she can sense other people's Qi/Ki but this is not stated in canon as fact. (I don't use this unless asked to/needed and it is more of a life sense then anything. If not okay, I will not use ti.)

◎ Personality:

Meiling isn't much different from a normal human on a physical level, even though she is a youkai. The only things that would set her apart for the most part is the fact she has no weak points and she seems to be an expert on controlling her Ki. While everyone throws out spell cards and magic, she would rather fall back on her Hand-to-Hand and Ki attacks. Due to this, many view her as weak, due to the fact that Gensokyo is won and lost due to the spell card system. Due to her preference of the more physical type of battles, she had very few spell cards for normal battles.

She is very honest and one of the more friendly youkai known. She will chat with just about anyone if they let her. The only time that friendly nature disappears is when someone is trying to intrude into the Mansion or show that they are a major threat to anyone she cares about. If she has an opinion on something or someone, she will state it outright. She isn't meaning to be rude, she just feels like it isn't right to hide it. She is horrible at lying at the same time. If it is to boost someone’s confidence or to cheer them up though, she will attempt to bend the truth enough to make them happy. If it is to protect someone, she will try even harder at this, even if she can be easily found out.

Meiling is dedicated to her Primary duties of being the Gatekeeper of the Scarlet Devil Mansion. Very few people can get past her, due to her being very versatile. Although the job can be engaging at times, Most of the time is quiet, letting her practice her Tai Chi Chuan at times or even, take a nap. Some make her out to be lazy, but it is only because they had caught her in the middle of her afternoon nap. Another part of her job is dedicated to the gardens, which she takes much pride in. There have been times she has trouble with them, when the 'crop circles' appeared in the flowers. But other than that, she loves her job. Even with the high level of dedication that Meiling shows in these positions, there is a laid back attitude hiding behind it all. This tends to get her into trouble as when things happen she can not explain, she can get rather frantic in trying to fix it.

She is also fiercely loyal to her employer, Remilia, her sister, Flandre, and the others who are also employed at the mansion, Sakuya, Patchouli and Koakuma. When it comes to their safety, she will do anything to keep them from harm if they let her. She hasn't had to do this seriously, nor kill anyone in a very long time and hopes to keep it that way. There is a comradere that keeps them close, in different forms. Sparring matches between her and the Head Maid, Sakuya to even sharing and discussing manga with Remilia from time to time. It brings her idea of them being her family even closer to the truth.

Although a lot of this has been hidden or broken from her time in Animus. Even a hopeful and bright outlook can be ended with what transpired there. During her time there, many experiments and horrific moments chipped at her positivity until it shattered under the pressure. It ended up turning the laid back and cheerful woman into a broken and untrusting being. Fear for her family and the friends she had made either became true to lie or worse. It even brought the idea of resigning her position as protector and leaving to keep them safer then they would be with her so close.

With all of that, a little bit of herself that had been long sense locked away has shown itself once again. The feral being that she was before coming into the service of Remilia Scarlet has slowly been showing up. Once during an experiment that had messed with the passage of time to those affected and again when they fought against Riki.

◎ Powers/Abilities:

Danmaku- Very non lethal. Magical bullets that will sting those used to them or could knock the breath out of someone. Meiling has very few spell cards and probably will not use them. BUT just for the record, her spell cards are Here. The ones she MIGHT use often are Here and Here as they are more Hand-to-Hand with Ki mixed in.

Hand-to-Hand and Ki control- She is a expert in her own right of the art of Tai Chi Chuan and the manipulation of Ki. This is all on her own doing and will practice it if given the chance, keeping her skills up to par.

Youkai body- She is a bit more sturdy and resistant to pain and injuries. It would take a lot more to bring her down then a normal human. There is speculation on what type of Youkai she is. Many fans say she is a dragon, due to the many hints in her name and the way she is. (Unless I get ZUNed, This should not be a problem. I head canon her to be a dragon as well and she is able to return to her dragon form, A Chinese dragon. But she will not show this unless she ABSOLUTELY has to, which would take a while anyways because she has not done this is a VERY long time. Dragons are rare you know!) Also, due to this she doesn't age, although she is fairly old.

◎ Weapons & Other Special Inventory:
A knife (One of Sakuya's. Given to her while in the tower)
A change of clothing
A black journal she kept while in the tower

CEREALIA-Specific

◎ Element: Earth

◎ Seven Character Traits: ( Strong, Kind, Loyal) | ( Persistant, Stubborn, Over Protective ) + Mentally broken

Samples

◎ First-Person Sample:

http://towerofanimus.dreamwidth.org/768000.html?thread=78220032#cmt78220032 - From her previous game

◎ Third-Person Sample:

There was a small part of the tall youkai that was trying to get Meiling to relax, and listen to what was being told. Things would be just fine if she were to trust what she was being told. That wouldn't be the case as the Tower had taught her that normally what the people started this type of thing were lying or not telling the whole truth. After being a soul in a wire frame and put through the torments that could be dreamed up? Anything calm and seemingly helpful was to be doubted.

With this in mind, Meiling decided to wander about for the time being. It was best to learn the area. Best to know where one can escape and defend easily when things went sour. All the technology had her a bit nervous but at the same time, at least she knew how some of it was used. A cautious curiosity peeks in her as she came across the Game Center, watching a few of the games as others played. After a bit, she found a game that looked fairly interesting. Once she figure out how to get it started, it didn't take long for her to start playing and forgetting the world around her. It was simple yet intriguing to her letting the strangeness of everything pass her by for a time.

After a while though, even the games couldn't keep her in once place and she wandered off once more, ending up in the gardens. It actually made her stop and stare. The plants and water actually got her to relax for the moment. It was amazing to her, seeing plants that she had never seen before. Out of everything she had seen since arriving, this was the most peaceful and normal thing that the youkai had seen.

"...Maybe I can stay here. It reminds me of home a little bit."

She spoke softly to herself. If others were here, maybe she could stay with them and learn. For now though, until she knew of that, the Garden was a good spot to think about. Also would be a nice place if something went wrong and when she wanted to just run. It would be good for her mind and maybe...just maybe the feral instincts that were coming back would calm if let lose in a safe place like this. An odd thought occurred to Meiling at this point. Maybe it was safe here. That she could trust these people...but for now, the mistrust would stay. Until proven otherwise, this thought would not change.

◎ Is your character retaining any previous game memories? YES! From [community profile] towerofanimus! She's been trough about a year and a half If I remember right. of torture and mental games. They won and were freed and given back their physical forms but Meiling won't get the chance to go home and rest.

If one was to really look at her mental state, One would say she's broken mentally. The torments that the tower threw at her kept chipping away at her normally happy outlook. She's a bit more somber and less likely to believe things when told. Also that protective nature of hers? Bump that up about 100 times. She's tired of seeing her family and friends die just to be resurrected in that horrible way.

Also, due to the fact that everything got figured out...mostly? She's still terrified that everything she's seeing is a dirty trick. Also she's not completely innocent to torture or mental anguish..or mind control. Very nervous when it come to that. There is also the minor fact that she's let the feral youkai mindset out a few times. That couldn't be any issue RIGHT?

Although I will try and remember to keep one torment quiet due to cannibalism and how trigggery it could be for others.
