Lixue Kang is the second daughter of Fire/Thunder God Liu Kang from Earthrealm and Princess Kitana, now Kahn and Elder Goddess, from Edenia/Outworld. Both from the game franchise Mortal Kombat.
Lixue has chinese features, deep black straight hair, deep brown eyes and fair skin. Since she doesn't like to fight, she tends to wear a cheongsam style blue dress with platinum colored designs and low heels. While using this type of outfit she wears her hair in a half-ponytail style with a chopsticks as a type hair ornament. This outfit includes two ruby earrings that were given to her by her father and platinum bracelets. She does have a fighting outfit that resembles her mothers outfit (the one show in MK 11), her hair is tied up in a high ponytail, she carries both a Guan Dao with her and a Fukiya just in case.
She is most of the times a happy and cheerful girl, being born as the daughter of both Liu Kang and Kitana they tried to make her childhood as calm as possible. She didn't face the same things her parents had faced, so she grew up without the need of making a cold or tough facade. She's normally described as a girl that will always try to make you smile even on your darkest days.
Even with this at hand, she sometimes feel unpleased with herself since she's not a fighter like her older brother, plus he is way more recognized for being the first born.
After the time-line was finally restored and Liu Kang basically became a god, he decided to have Kitana and his other friends by his side while he perfomed his duties. Of course they could not be together all the time for both of the had duties (one as a god and the other as Kahn of outworld). Outworld was not accepting their relationship, it was outrageous, they managed to convince the population of Outworld with the help of others and were finally left alone. Time after this their first born, prince of Outworld, was presented to the kingdom Kitana realized they were both expecting a second child and thus Lixue was born. Raised as the princess of Outworld and the second daughter of Earthrealm's protector, she was expected to greatness and she did not let anyone down.
Lixue's relationship with her parents and brother is really nice, they love eachother a lot but it is a little distant. Liu Kang had to take care of the realms, specially earthrealm, and Kitana had to take care of her duties as Kahn of Outworld (plus performing some Elder Goddess duties too). Kuan-Yin was the one who basically took care of Lixue when their parents could not, and even with that care she still felt a little bit distant with her brother. Anyway, when the family managed to be all together they were all loving and caring for one another. She also considers Jade and Kotal to be her family, since Jade was her mother's best friend and Kotal is Jade's husband. Jade and Kotal along with Kung Lao are considered, by both Lixue and Kuan-Yin, as their aunt and uncles.
Lixue is friends with most of the MK offspring that is aligned to the good side, although she can get along with anyone that is nice to her. Huan and Mik are two of her closest friends since they are more like family (due to Jade being seen as Kitana's sister and Kung Lao having the same ancestor as Liu Kang). Huan and Lixue are like really close brothers, they protect eachother and love eachother a lot. Mik is more like her bodyguard sometimes, but they treat eachother as cousins. Another one of her most precious friends is Ashuka, who is her bodyguard. Lixue is really grateful to Ashuka due to her always taking care of her safety.
Even if she tries to have the less enemies as possible, sometimes you can't avoid having them. One of the most prominent is Kanna-Chi, as the daughter of the necromancer Quan-Chi, she carries his legacy. Lixue knows perfectly about what Quan-Chi had done prior to his death, and she knows that her mother and father were once revived as revenants. Even if she wants to forgive Kanna, she can't for the simple fact that she is proud of being her father's daughter. Her true enemy is Maika, who is always trying to take everything she has and wants to kill her basically. Lixue wants to help Maika, since those ideas of being princess weren't hers, but she thinks it's a lost cause.
Li has never been someone really interesting to people, but after a while she managed to find who she thinks is the one. Him being Apollo Clark, who she thinks loves her as much as she loves him.
