A proud member of the Tu Yuansu Branch of her clan, Ying takes great pride in both her fierce combat prowess and the fellow members of her branch. While starkly different from her siblings and even father, Ying seems to have inherited Impero's undeniable ambition. However, hers is not one that deals with ethical issues, her fiery ambition is driven by her desire to become the greatest Tu Yuansu grand-master of all time, surpassing even Lian Yuansu. Born with the mind of a fighting genius and the heart of an unyielding warrior, Ying is a bold, confrontational, and courageous individual who hardly if ever hesitates to accept a challenge. This has unfortunately rendered her vulnerable to being goaded into fights. She is an individual who is governed by her own independence, often refusing help unless she believes it necessary. A tough and fearless girl, Ying despite her young age has fought against and defeated adult Tu Yuansu practitioners in her quest to become the greatest fighter that her branch has ever seen. Fiercely loyal to both her clan and family, Ying holds her siblings and father in high regard, never hesitating to rush to their verbal even physical defense. While young, she has claimed to being willing to lose her life if it means the safety of her family, clan and those she cares for. Though clearly confident in her abilities, Ying is somewhat of a realist, often aware when she is disadvantaged, however, due to her warrior's heart, she refuses to concede regardless of the odds stacked against her. While socially dominant like her father and sister, Ying does not possess their regal demeanor, but she does have an extensive knowledge in portraying herself as a sophisticated well-mannered individual. Due to her rough, unyielding, and steadfast personality, Ying does not concern herself with the royalty of being a princess and much rather prefers to remain in the monastery where she can continue her training with her friends and fellow clansmen. Ruthless on the field of battle, Ying is merciless, having no qualms with brutally beating her opponents. She has however, never killed, but has once brought an opponent to the brink of death. Due to being from the Tu Yuansu Branch, Ying shares a very deep connection with the Earth and enjoys being surrounded by nature. While admiring her father and sister's skill with Huo Yuansu, she prides herself with being a Tu Yuansu fighter, preferring the underlying force and physically demanding nature of her branch. Despite her rough exterior, Ying is very loving towards her family and seems to have a strong bond with her sister, Rubina. Interestingly enough, Ying idolizes Lian Yuansu and hopes to one day surpass her. She has been made aware of the existence of Kratesis and Lionel, and while eager to meet both, she isn't particularly overcome by this desire.
Born into the legendary Yuansu Clan to enigmatic Impero and an unknown woman who sadly died during childbirth, Ying was quickly nurtured by her father and the Elders with undeniable warmth and love. But as a daughter of Impero, bold Ying was born with abnormally high inner chi reserves which placed a colossal amount of expectation on her shoulders regarding her future Yuansu prowess. Hoping that his daughter would either train under the Huo Yuansu Branch or the Feng Yuansu Branch for proper development of her monstrous inner chi, Impero was soon disappointed when informed that his four year old daughter's meditation had revealed her innate affiliation to the element of earth, Tu Yuansu. Skeptical that one with such an enormous amount of inner chi would be able to cope with the emphasis on external chi that Tu Yuansu presented, Impero nonetheless placed his daughter in the Tu Yuansu Branch. Quickly however, the poised grandmaster was caught by surprise at the rapid development of Ying's Tu Yuansu skill as she displayed uncanny dexterity and creativity, not unlike that of her older sister, Rubina. While training under different branches, both Ying and Rubina grew very close to one another, often sparring with each other when not restrained by the training obligations of their respective branches. At the age of seven, Ying entered an under-thirteen Tu Yuansu tournament, driven by the desire to prove herself one of her branch's most feared fighters. It was during the tournament that Ying's latent desire to become the greatest Tu Yuansu fighter of all time emerged. Making short work of all her opponents in a dazzling display of skill and undeniable technique, Ying put forth a memorable performance as she emerged the tournament's eventual victor and champion. Unfortunately, she remained unsatisfied and through relentless insistence and begging, was allowed entrance into the adult Tu Yuansu tournament by a reluctant Impero. Fully confident in her skills, the now nine year old Ying defeated a plethora of opponents with a surprise showcase of a previously unseen unorthodox Tu Yuansu fighting style combining the tiger-like ferocity of Yuansu Fennu with the raw technique and control-based elements of Yuansu de Naixin. This allowed the appropriately nicknamed Yuansu Tigress to compensate for her lack of mastery and expertise in her individual fighting styles. Unfortunately, upon reaching the quarter-finals, Ying was defeated by an adult Tu Yuansu expert who lost to the tournament's eventual winner.
While heavily commended for her brilliance and unique fighting techniques by her father and sister, Ying remained frustrated with her defeat. And as many continued to praise her memorable displays in the tournament, she began to question her own skill due to defeat and experienced periodic bouts with her confidence which affected her subsequent training and led to an eventual drop of form. While struggling with her usually unbreakable confidence and self-certainty, the still nine year old Ying was warmly comforted and given advice by her father as well as her sister. Impero himself pointed out that his own skill was not even half as impressive and dynamic even into his fifteenth year with the Yuansu Clan. While Rubina admitted that had Ying been put into the Huo Yuansu Branch, she would have surpassed her due to her latent yet abnormally massive inner chi. Their advice and comfort proved useful as Ying's relationship with her confidence improved which led to the eventual retaining of her characteristic self-confidence and assertiveness. Resuming her training, the Yuansu Tigress soon found her form and proceeded with the heavy improvement and refinement of her Tu Yuansu skill while at the same time evolving the training methods of her intense physical conditioning. At the age of eleven she was informed by her father of an upcoming adult tournament involving competitors from all the Yuansu Branches. Driven by the desire for victory and seeking to redeem her past defeat, Ying and the few younger Yuansu Clan members that qualified for the adult tournament, began to train with one another. It was at this time that Ying bonded with a fourteen year old girl from the Shui Yuansu Branch. The girl, named Ai became very close friends with Ying as the two trained together with the others. The strong friendship led to their becoming of best friends. And while Ying focused on perfecting her Tu Yuansu skill rather than improving her skill in both its sub-branches, Ai focused on developing the Shui Yuansu sub-branch, Hongse Yuansu. Upon the tournament's inevitable commencement, both Ying and Ai impressed by artistically outfighting their powerful opponents.
Heading far into the tournament, both Ying and Ai looked to be promising competitors who would undoubtedly reach the quarter-finals. However, upon reaching the quarter-finals, the eleven-year old Ying was pitted against an eighteen year old misogynist who made several disrespectful comments and insults due to Ying being a girl. This served as the foundation for her feminist ideals. While outperforming her opponent, anger was soon instilled in Ying by a particular misogynistic insult to which Ying responded to by executing a thunderous uppercut that brutally shot a large pillar of rock into her opponent's groin with devastating force. This led to Ying's disqualification for striking her opponent in an illegal area. The tournament's eventual winner was her sister, Rubina. Failing to win the tournament yet again, an angered Ying later approached her opponent after the tournament's conclusion and severely beat him with a series of unrestrained attacks. Stopped by her sister from proceeding any further, Ying was soon taken to her father who opted to teach her the art of composure and clear-thinking so that she may never be goaded into situations as easily. And while his teachings did improve her behavior, Ying forever remained a somewhat hotheaded, headstrong girl. At the age of thirteen, yet another adult tournament had been announced (Rubina opted not to enter). Both Ai and Ying decided to enter the tournament, this time promising to meet each other in the final to face one another. After extensive training, the two entered the tournament, and to their surprise, they were pitted against one another for the tournament's opening match. Opting to put forth the most memorable opening match in the history of Yuansu tournaments, both Ying and Ai made outstanding displays of skill and technical ability. As the eventful opening match proceeded, Ying's immense inner chi enabled her to resist the powerful blood manipulation of Ai's Hongse Yuansu as she attempted to violently contort Ying's body. Eventually defeating Ai by shooting her out the platform with a rock pillar, through heart and great skill, Ying finally managed to win the adult Yuansu tournament at the age of thirteen. Having achieved a long-sought objective, the Yuansu Tigress has recently voiced her desire to do battle her sister, Rubina in a Yuansu tournament, placing no importance in her role as one of Iberia's princesses.
Powers & Abilities
Expert Tu Yuansu Practitioner
(Translation "The Element of Earth"): An expert Tu Yuansu fighter, this chi-based martial art grants Ying the geokinetic ability to manipulate earth and rock. The core principle of Tu Yuansu is patiently waiting for the precise moment to counterstrike. Ying relies heavily on her uncanny ability to sense vibrations in the ground to employ this fighting style in the field of battle. This fighting style places an equal amount of emphasis on both defense and offense. This is also one of the most diverse of the Yuansus fighting styles, ranging from the most commonly used Tu Yuansu styles which involve waiting to strike with underlying force, the other rigid and merciless styles, as well as more fluid ones. Generally placing heavy focus on strength, Tu Yuansu practitioners are relatively muscular, and while young, Ying herself is an undeniably physically-conditioned fighter. Certain rarer styles require the user to be mobile when required and not traditionally rooted to the ground. While not yet a master, Ying has somehow managed to perfect the ability to seismically sense vibrations in the ground with her feet, granting her a flawless image of her surroundings. Due to the very nature of Tu Yuansu, Ying is incapable of using this martial arts style when not in close proximity to earth or rock. The development of one's physical attributes is also important due to the level of endurance needed for effective use of this fighting style. Tu Yuansu places greater importance on the development of external chi which is the ambient chi in one's environment, while placing minimal important on inner chi due to a connection to earth and nature being required to succeed. Ying herself utilizes an unorthodox combination of Tu Yuansu's primary fighting style and its two sub-branches in order to compensate for her lack of mastery in the three separate fighting styles which renders her one of the most creative and skilled Tu Yuansu experts in the entire clan despite her young age. The following are sub-branches of Tu Yuansu that Ying herself is exceptionally skilled in:
- Yuansu de Naixin (Element of Patience): While the basic elements of Tu Yuansu involve a degree of patience and sharp perception due to waiting for the correct moment to strike, no matter how minuscule the moment may be, Yuansu de Naixin further elevates these basic principles. Yuansu de Naixin places great emphasis on rooting one's stance as a strong chi-based connection to the earth is required. One's feet must firmly establish themselves with the earth, and while mobility is to an extent encouraged, the greatest aspect of Yuansu de Naixin lies in perception and patience. This fighting style is available only to very few elite Tu Yuansu masters, however, due to her immense dexterity and control, Ying is capable of utilizing a very effective but incomplete version of this style. This fighting style involves using the characteristic Tu Yuansu ability to seismically sense vibrations in the ground. Every grounded movement and step generates subtle vibrations in the ground which can be sensed by a Yuansu de Naixin practitioner. Upon sensing a vibration which indicates that defense has been forsaken for offense by a fighter, Yuansu de Naixin practitioners counter with an attack that boasts underlying force and exploits the opponent's temporary lack of defense. The movements of Yuansu de Naxin are distinct from Tu Yuansu as it is not rigid and militaristic. Its movements are precise, technical, and raw, placing importance on both technique and simplicity as counter-striking requires as much time as possible. As a result, this is a very difficult fighting style to use effectively, let alone master. This also indicates that Yuansu de Naixin is completely useless when one's feet are not in contact with the ground due to its reliance on the sensing of ground vibrations. Ying has claimed to wanting to fully perfect this fighting style and improve it even further.
- Yuansu Fennu (Element of Fury): This is one of the most aggressive and intense fighting styles in the entire clan. Putting undeniable importance in the development of one's physical attributes due to the excessive physicality of the style, an equal balance between speed, stamina, agility and strength is required. The style is purely offensive and greatly lacks in defense which is only supported by fast dodging. Yuansu Fennu is characterized by tiger-like ferocity and animalistic aggression. Designed to overwhelm opponents with intense barrages of rock and earth supported by relentless speed and raw power, this fighting style lacks grace and finesse, while makes speed, technique and power very prominent aspects. Mobility is very important and Yuansu Fennu practitioners do not require direct contact with the earth for effective use of this style as it consists of artistic areal dodging and speedy countering and dodging. However, like Tu Yuansu, close proximity to the earth is still required. This is Ying's most preferred fighting style to rely on in the field of battle. Her extensive skilled use of this fighting style has resulted in the nickname "Yuansu Tigress". While not yet a master, she is quite skilled in this sub-branch, but is only capable of using an incomplete version.
Being Impero's daughter, Ying was born with an enhanced mutant physiology which elevates all of her physical attributes far beyond those of even the finest Olympic athlete. Capable of enduring high caliber bullet shots with even greater resistance than her sister Rubina, while smaller, she is more physically effective than her sister due to the rigorous physical training of Tu Yuansu. This has made her somewhat more durable than Rubina as well as physically stronger, capable of lifting a maximum of fifteen tons. She however, is not as fast as her sister, incapable of dodging lightning bolts with the same amount of ease and precision. Her combat prowess extends beyond her Tu Yuansu skill as she possesses a reasonable amount of skill in Muay Thai and has had grappling lessons from her father and sister. While young, her 'fighting genius' has enabled her to fully understand and comprehend combat elements at frightening rates.
