Appearance Edit

Tao is a young woman with green eyes and short light blonde hair. Due to her small size, she is often mistakenly regarded as a child, when in truth she is already 19 years old.

Tao is normally seen wearing a white robe with an embellished jacket.

Personality Edit

Tao is the second Princess of the neighboring country of Xing. She is an animal lover as she is shown to be taking care of many cats in her personal mansion.

Smart and headstrong, Tao was able to head her own faction to go against her own sister. Tao loves peace and is openly against waging war against Kouka and prefers it to become a vassal of Kouka so the citizens will not be victimized by war.

Tao was in a dispute with her older sister, Lady Kouren, who was planning to wage war against Kouka.

Tao was also seen to be very caring and kind to Yona, as seen in Chapter 128 of the manga, Yona suddenly had her period and she helped Yona out by draping a cloth over her, to ensure that nobody sees the blood stains on the leg and possibly dress.
