Leixia is a cute
teenage girl, her facial features resemble her mother Xianghua,
her hairstyle in based on a traditional Chinese hairstyle worn by young women.
She is wearing an elegant outfit inspired by the blue lotus flower. She also
has Kilik's pendant
attached to her collar and some are speculating that Kilik is her father.
Though Leixia's father
was a general in the armies of the Ming Dynasty, it was her mother, Xianghua,
who gave her a taste for adventure. Xianghua entranced her daughter with tales
of her quest to find the Hero's Sword, and the boy she fell in love with along
the way. Leixia never learned what happened to the boy, but the stories filled
her with excitement and wanderlust. "When I grow up, we'll see the world
together, Mother!" She said.
Leixia never forgot
the promise she made her mother, and she spent her youth practicing sword
fighting in anticipation of their travels. But on her 15th birthday,
everything changed. Leixia's younger brother gifted her a pendant set with a
blue stone; when she showed it to her mother, Xianghua grew frantic and
immediately ran to her husband. "I don't want Leixia exposed to the
outside world. I want her to become one of the emperor's wives!" Leixia
was sure it was the sight of the pendant that had caused this dramatic change
in her mother. She escaped the family mansion and set out to discover why.
"I don't have much to go on, but I'll figure it out," she resolved
to herself. "After all, this is my destiny!" At last, the time had
come to venture out into the world of clashing swords and sweeping romance
that she'd dreamed about for so long...

successor in Soul Calibur 5, Leixia uses her mother's trademark fighting
style, but adds her own flair some of Xianghua's classic moves. She's definitely not quite as graceful as her
mother, but she has a good selection of her own unique moves & mannerisms.
Also worth noting, is that she's less annoying than Xianghua (in English)...
AKA: No more "just kidding! just kidding! just kidding!" :)
Naturally, Leixia resembles
Xianghua visually, and her attire is like a hybrid of some of Xianghua's past outfits. The
fact that she wears Kilik's pendant also hints that he may be her father...
which would be pretty cool in terms of storyline. I'm thinking Xianghua & Kilik hooked up between SC4
and SC5.... hahaha, nice going Kilik!
