|The protagonist of the story, Prince’s identity in the real world is that of a nineteen-year-old university student, Feng Lan (风蓝 prn. fēng lán). Following an argument with her brother, Yang Ming, over the advantages that female players have in MMORPGs, Feng Lan decided to play as a male character and wound up being the first and only transgendered character in the world of the virtual reality game, Second Life. In a private conversation with Lolidragon, however, Feng Lan revealed that her true motivation for playing as a male character was not to spite her brother, but to break free of the expectations that society has of women in general. Her character, Prince, is a white-haired elf with red eyes and extremely handsome features.
Prince often finds himself in sticky situations as a result of his looks, which guarantee that he will usually be at the center of female attention. In order to solve this, he initially pretended to be an item with Lolidragon, but after the debacle with Fairsky, the two of them decided to form a team (Odd Squad) to protect Prince’s virtue. Thanks to Lolidragon’s training, Prince has developed a habit of smiling faintly and usually maintains a gentlemanly conduct in the presence of strangers. However, when in private or with Odd Squad, Prince’s quirky nature quickly becomes apparent. He has been shown to be quite practical and, on occasion, money-minded. For instance, he was quick to grind Doll’s skeletons’ bones into powder to sell for money, and he became interested in fighting dragons after finding out that it is a profitable venture. He is also a big eater and impressively lousy with directions.
Following the fight with Perfect Princess Team during the Adventurers’ Tournament, Prince adopted a public image as a bloodthirsty, ruthless fighter, and has become widely known by the nickname “Blood Elf.”
It has been noted by many other players that Prince has a very unique and incredible fighting style. This is because Prince’s moves and techniques are generally inspired by cooking, fighting games, comics, and wuxia novels, such as King of Fighters, Rurouni Kenshin, and Jin Yong’s The Proud, Laughing Wanderer and The Return of the Condor Heroes. For instance, his ultimate move, Nine-Headed Dragon Strike, is a modified version of the skill used by Kenshin from the manga Rurouni Kenshin. Such a fighting style is possible for Prince because he is not familiar with (and hence not restricted by) the conventional way of playing as a warrior in an MMORPG.
As a result of winning the Adventurers’ Tournament, Odd Squad was saddled with a piece of land on which they began to construct their own city, Infinite City. Prince was then tricked by the rest of Odd Squad into assuming leadership of the city, and so became the liege lord of Infinite City.
When Prince ventured out to ask Nan Gong Zui to join Infinite City, he becomes so drunk and lost that he ends up on a ship heading toward the Eastern Continent. Having spent all of his money on the ship ride, he becomes stuck until he can earn enough money for the return trip. PMs across continents do not work, so the rest of Infinite City do not know his whereabouts until Wicked asks offline. While stranded, Prince meets Jing and Yun, who are friends of Feng Lan in real life. Hiding his identity, Prince helps his offline friends train. They take on a dangerous mission to defeat the Demon King, who Prince discovers is an NPC who has gained awareness. With a bout of good guesswork, Prince secures the Demon King’s hair tie and successfully clears the first part of the mission, but Jing and Yun betray him by pushing him down a cliff. At the bottom of the cliff, the Demon King kisses Prince awake. Prince learns of the Demon King’s self awareness and names him Kenshin. Kenshin brings Prince to meet Sunshine, another NPC who has gained self-awareness. Prince helps clear their hidden missions and receives both of them as pets. After reuniting with Jing and Yun, Prince returns to the Central Continent with them on Sunshine’s flying carpet just in time to participate in a battle to defend Infinite City.
Prince has three pets, Meatbun, Kenshin, and Sunshine.
In the real world, Feng Lan is a skilled cook. She is a first year student reading Chinese literature at XXX University. Her best friends are Lü Jing and Gu Yun Fei.
