A man of few words, Xue Ming is the type of person nobody really wants to get along with. His reputation as the cause of a massacre that took the lives of over 122 civilians precedes him in his faction, and he is viewed as a example of what happens when magus cannot contain his ambition and crosses the line that keeps obsession snapping into insanity. Xue Ming, who had sacrificed all those civilians just to gain more power, is currently on OLYMPUS to serve his time. The punishment put upon him is being integrated back into normal life, while the rest of the faction keeps a close watch on him so that he will not go on another murderous rampage. However, during his time in OLYMPUS, many questions have begun to arise: like, for what reason did he murder those civilians? The man who inhabits the floating city is not the crazed mass-murderer spoken of by those who witnessed the event, but a silent teenager with a grim stare and little to no ambition whatsoever. Whether this is simply an act to throw off those watching him, or a hint of something else remains to be seen.
Xue Ming is known for being a prodigy with spear, and his skills as a warrior are legendary. He was, at one point, taught by Li Hong's father over ten years ago, but after the incident, he was left to learn on his own. It is maybe because of this that Li Hong seems to feel an odd sense of responsibility towards the boy, acting as his surrogate older sister... who is ready to snap his neck the moment he does something wrong. Because of what happened, the magecraft practiced by Xue Ming is heavily regulated, but apparently it has something to do with blood itself, and derives power from the wounds caused by his spear. That is why he unconsciously aims only to wound, not to kill, with is spear-attacks.
Where to Find: he rarely leaves the China Dormitory, but when he does, he tends to stop by a certain fitting part of the Persephone Gardens...
