Personality & Traits

General Overview Mei emulates her ancestors, having a direct line back to the Three Kingdoms era Sun family, tracing a direct line back to the warlord Sun Ce. Highly knowledgeable about the Era, she strives to be liken too Sun Shang Xiang (for who she is named), the sister of Sun Ce who had an energy, determination, and even training like her brothers.

She believes in martial preparedness, and takes great pride in the practice of her cultures martial arts. As such, she adheres strictly to the morality originally attached to the arts (Humility, Loyalty, Politeness, Righteousness, and Trust in deed; Courage, Endurance, Patience, Perseverance, and Willpower in mind.)

She does, also, have a strange view on the world. She sees herself in a very archaic fashion, somehow instinctively submissive to those in authority (rather than traditional gender roles). She has a notably rebellious streak as well, proud and happy to act against the flow if the situation calls for it, possibly drawn from the same ideology.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths
- Mei has a brilliant mind, delicately precise in many aspects. She has studied Tactics, Strategy, and Combat with an uncanny love since she was very young. As such, she has an incredibly vast knowledge of ancient, classic, old world, contemporary, and alien strategists and strategies.
- She has trained in martial arts since she was very young, and almost exclusively in her ancestral styles. Notably her mastery of Wing Chun, Tai Chi Chuan, Fujian White Crane, and Hung Gar styles overtakes the practice of some others. She is also very well trained, practiced, and committed to the use of a Jian (sword).
- Impressively trained reflexes, endurance, strength (relative to size) and mental faculties.
- An exquisite pilot, who refers to her ability to fly as her 'true kung fu'. She practices this, perhaps as much as anything, if not more - honing her abilities as best she can. She knows shuttles, fighters, and their operation and the engineering behind them.
- Morally, and ethically, Mei is a tremendously good person. Loyal, humble, and dedicated to her cause, whatever it may be. She finds friends easy, and when in a good mood, she definitely has a contagious type of good mood.
- Due to her extensive martial arts trainings, she is also a capable gymnast and acrobat.

Weaknesses
- Though she seems tough at times, Mei is still limited by her less than impressive size. Her strength, though decent, could not be described as good. She is not built terribly sturdy, not able to take much damage, and in a word - frail. In a fight, she must rely on her reflexes, strategy, and training over strength.
- Mei takes everything personally. She feels that her actions are a reflection of herself. When she fails to do something well, she is at fault. If one of her wing mates is shot down, she takes it personally. She finds herself at odds with her own shortcomings more than most, and concentrates on them, perhaps, a bit too much.
- Though appearing proud, confident, and sure of herself, in some aspects the girl is not. She does not believe she is capable of being a real 'woman'. She doubts her looks, abilities in romance, and all such things. However, part of her, though a warrior and proud woman, desperately wants to be accepted as a woman, to be seen as (for lack of a better term) a princess.
- Sometimes, as a perfectionist in her respective arts, she tries to hard sometimes, and can become distant, withdrawn in her practice or studies.
- Emulates others perhaps a bit too much. She strives to be liken to her ancestors and various heroes throughout the ages. She sometimes forgets herself.
- Often appears to 'not think' before acting. Though not true, she does make decisions quick, and rarely changes her mind.

Ambitions - Mei hopes to become a fighter Ace, and though not nearly there, she believes one day she will be one.
- Mei wishes to become a noted strategist, and a respected commanding officer (even if just of a fighter wing).
- She wishes someday to be referred to as Lady Sun. Though somewhat silly, she believes that bringing the name to her will honor both her ancestors who bore the name.
- She has a desire, like most, to some day find love; but never wants to lose her name.
Hobbies & Interests Mei is incredibly interested in classic Chinese literature, culture, and history. She spends much of her free time, delving deeply into her own past. She tries to stay connected to her own culture, but enjoys learning of others (especially of common ground). She often is quick to learn of other cultures.

She enjoys classic Chinese games such as Xiangqi or what is commonly known as Go. She also actively practices martial arts, and does do contests when possible. She enjoys dance, both traditional forms and more modern forms.

She enjoys music, but has no talent for it, as well as cooking, but again, no talent. She enjoys almost any physical activity, the more strenuous the better.
Languages Federation Standard, Mandarin Chinese, Yue (Cantonese), a little Japanese due to her brother-in-law.
