Doctor Litchi Faye-Ling (ライチ=フェイ=リン) is a revered medical practitioner in the district of Orient Town, in the 13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi. She formerly worked with Kokonoe under Sector Seven, and had been hunting down Arakune after its appearance, desperate to save Lotte Carmine. Litchi is well known in Kagutsuchi, becoming close to the Kaka and her assistant, Linhua.

Litchi is one of the original twelve playable characters who debuted in BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. She is also the host of the Teach Me, Miss Litchi! miniseries in the main games.

Appearance

Litchi is a tall, houglass-shape Asian woman with purple eyes, black semi-rimless framed glasses, and very long black hair that is often in various updos all notably including her pet panda Lao Jiu. There are multiple jokes throughout the series at her expense about her large breasts.

Litchi has three main outfits she's seen in throughout the series. the first being what she wears in combat: A stylish red and gold dress with long black sleeves that's unbuttoned at her chest area, showing her black bra. Along with the dress she wears white and red heeled boots. The second outfit she is shown in is her doctor uniform, where she's wearing a red dress with white sleeves and a yin-yang brooch, along with white shoes with gold accents. Lastly while she worked at sector seven she wore a red dress a little bit similar to her combat dress with a white labcoat and at this time her glasses were red.

Personality

Lacking a hidden side, one who is loved by everyone. Knowledgeable and familiar with the martial arts. Although normally very kind and feminine, alcohol causes her to act like a middle-aged man.[1][2]

Outwardly warm and caring towards any of her patients and friends. Litchi is honest and straightforward, getting straight to the points of subjects but has been known to teeter around one depending on its sensitivity. It is her affable personality that has led to her warm reception in Orient Town and Lost Town, being one of the few humans who is openly loved by the Kaka. To this end, her willingness to help residents of both districts has made her a beloved figure who is admired by Linhua and Taokaka - Linhua's admiration is so strong that she wants to become a doctor like Litchi and has even begun growing her hair out to imitate her.[3]

Underneath her maternal and kind figure, Litchi is haunted by her time in Sector Seven and her inability to save Lotte "Roy" Carmine from his fall into the Boundary. For a long time, she was under the impression that he had become Arakune, not knowing that the creature was preventing the man's soul from corrupting. To save him, Litchi abandoned her lucrative position at Sector Seven and chose to live in Kagutsuchi, a city known for its criminal activities.[4] The wounds she tends to concerning the Kaka are mainly caused by Arakune's activity in the area, only making her guilt increase. To save him, she would do anything, including seeking out the Azure and Azure Grimoire. Her attachment to Roy is heavily implied to be romantic; Litchi, however, is seemingly oblivious to the advances of Bang Shishigami.

There is a darker side to Litchi, which mainly stems from her dedication to Roy. She willingly joined Relius Clover in order to reset the world just to save Roy, even though she was fighting with someone she hates. Litchi has a complicated relationship with Kokonoe, her former mentor, as the two do not sometimes see eye-to-eye; this is mainly because of Litchi's disdain with Kokonoe's hubris and questionable scientific ethic. Owing to her former profession as a scientist, Litchi is much smarter than she will often let others know, and is knowledgeable in the world around her, particularly seithr and theories surrounding it and the Boundary.

In her free time, Litchi plays mahjong, becoming something of a local legend as she remains undefeated by any Orient Town residents. This streak earned her the moniker "Mahjong Empress". After drinking too much alcohol, her favourite being shochu liquor, Litchi's behaviour changes to become sleazy and perverted; she does not seem to drink much for this to happen.

Powers & Techniques

Though her professions as a doctor and scientist would suggest that Litchi is not suited for combat, she can hold her own in a fight. In battle, she switches between her fists and her staff, Mantenbo. Litchi's acrobatic ability is unmatched, being able to effortlessly somersault across a battlefield and jump onto Mantenbo while demonstrating exceptional balance and martial prowess. To keep up with other powerful entities and individuals, Litchi uses Lao Jiu to directly stream power from the Boundary, seemingly amplifying her Ars Magus.

In gameplay, Litchi's Drive is Mantenbo, which allows her to switch stances between using Mantenbo and her fists. Each has their own benefits with the staff stance giving her longer reach while her other stance gives her more combo potential and overall moves at the cost of shorter reach. When activated in her staff stance, Litchi plants Mantenbo in the ground, and activating it again will swing the staff as a weak projectile.

Outside of combat, Litchi is medically trained, being able to use both traditional medicine and Ars Magus, although she prefers administrating the former. Her knowledge on traditional herbal remedies and their usage helped with her acceptance into Sector Seven, and she is no stranger to the usage of alchemy as she was taught some of it by Roy.[5] Litchi's most impressive scientific feat, however, is her liquid theory of seithr, a theory which could ultimately lead to the creation of a Black Beast or Nox Nyctores; this has been applauded by both Relius and Kokonoe, who see it as her magnum opus. In her quest to save Roy, Litchi became an Observer, but her abilities as one are weak, meaning that she has to amplify her ability using both machinery and an Overdrive.[6]

Ultimately, Litchi is not as strong as others in the cast, having lost to Makoto Nanaya and Bang in battle. By herself, Litchi was not able to qualify as one of the chosen and only managed to become one thanks to Lao Jiu, the latter of which is slowly killing her each time she chooses to employ the power of the Boundary. The more Litchi continues to use Lao Jiu's power, the closer she leans to becoming like Arakune.

BlazBlue: Central Fiction Library Entry

Litchi Faye-Ling

Formerly a member of Sector Seven's research team, she was also Kokonoe's apprentice.

With her abundance of knowledge, she opens a clinic in the lower levels of the 13th Hierarchical City Kagutsuchi to help those who need treatment, as well as collect information about her former colleague, Arakune. It is her life-mission to save him.

A sophisticated woman, whose personality and sense of humor is loved by everyone she meets. Even the Kaka Clan, known for their distaste of humans, trusts her deeply. However, when it comes to matters surrounding Arakune, she becomes so focused, she ignores everything else.

She's also an avid and rather good gambler, and isn't afraid to pound the drinks hard. Although, when the drinks start flowing, she tends to dispense life advice to anyone around.

After discovering the secret to saving Arakune lies within the Azure, she decides to work in conjunction with the NOL… the organization she once opposed.[11]
