- "Oh, no. The master and his wife were kind enough to adopt me when my father died a year ago."
- —Xing, to Miaka.
Appearance and Personality
Xing has a beautiful face and appears with deep, blue, braided hair, wearing a dress with multiple colors. She also wears a necklace similar to what Miaka wore at the Suzaku's Summoning Ceremony. She appears to be charming, gentle, and friendly, and she feels indebted to her adoptive parents enough to obey Tokaki's request to separate Tamahome from Miaka whether she actually wants it or not.
PlotShe first appears when Subaru and Tokaki tend to the exhausted Suzaku warriors. Tokaki tells Tamahome to forget all about Miaka, and he also tells Xi Fang to help Tamahome forget about Miaka. She tells Miaka about a legend if two lovers kiss the exact moment the sun sets at the nearby tower, nothing can ever separate them, but not a single couple returned alive, for they were monsters in that tower.
Miaka then helps Xi Fang prepare dinner. Miaka's cooking was putrid, and Tasuki denies the fact and then on the same phrase he literally said that it was really horrible. Miaka, all offended because of the food and confused about Tamahome 's reaction, leaves the room, and then Tamahome eats all of Miaka's terrible cooking since he had promised to do so.
Xi Fang and Tamahome are soon alone in the room. When the two of them were about to kiss, Miaka enters the room. She then tells Tamahome that she will be waiting for him on the tower Xing told her about, then heads there. Tokaki then says that he needs to crush the relationship between Miaka and Tamahome because when Suzaku is summoned, they will be separated.
All of the measures taken by Tokaki fail, plus Tamahome eventually learns about Suzuno and Tatara's tragic love and declares that even if he and Miaka are separated, he won't give up on her. Tokaki gives up and stops having Xi Fang interfere.
- Miaka, there's a legend that if a couple kisses exactly when the sun sets, nothing will ever separate them. On that tower, you see that one? But not a single couple returned alive. That tower is full of monsters.
