She who came to be known as the source of the Tang Dynasty’s downfall and the rebellion that set the empire ablaze, Guifei. From a cute town girl of childhood to a beautiful bewitching spoiled princess, a foreigner of changing appearances and personalities. Hidden inside are the blinding flames of a malignant god who resides within a star….?
"My beauty is for the Empire, my love is for the Emperor, and my heart for my relatives. Though as that may be, the sound of my lute, the happiness from my songs and dance are only mine, and not for others."
Within the 300 years of history that the Tang Dynasty lived, she became the consort of Emperor Xuanzong who ruled during its peak period. Xuanzong was the grandson of Wu Zetian. As this is the case, we can say that Wu Zetian is her grandmother-in-law, but they seem to have some issues.
From a young age, as a result of her beauty she became withdrawn because of all the scum and monsters she attracted to her. However, on the other hand, when she and her siblings lost their parents and were wandering the streets, they were able to be saved due to her beautiful appearance. Since then, she decided to proactively use her beauty as a tool to become a source of happiness for others and gained a newfound sense of confidence and pride in herself.
A high maintenance childhood friend type beauty (bishoujo)? Due to her relatives entering her into a national beauty contest and her suddenly becoming famous, she doesn’t have much self-awareness. Exceptionally talented at singing, dancing, and the lute (biwa). She loves lychee and has an unparalleled love for hot springs. She is up-front with her feelings and has an optimistic personality. From working hard to help those around her she feels a sense of happiness.
Yang Guifei makes use of her instruments in conjunction with the powers of the Outer God connected to her to fight her enemies. She can play them to summon apparitions that she refers to as "Fire Vampires", which assault the enemy with blue flame and make use of these blue flames to empower her on physical attacks or engulf her biwa in them to use as a melee weapon. As she gets closer to the Outer God, she is able to fire laser beams from her flutes and also link them together to use as a whip. She can also play her biwa to rain down blue flame upon her enemies, as well as manifest a miniature blue sun to launch at her enemies.
