Mei-Ling (Shao Lin-Lin in Japan and in all versions of Vampire Savior) is a minor character in the Darkstalkers series.
She and Hsien-Ko were born as twin sisters in the eighteenth century. During this time, spirits of the dead arose from their graves and attacked her village. After her mother was killed by a demon, she and her sister decided to use Tensei-no-Jutsu to save her soul, but they used a prohibited sub-division of the technique, Igyo Tenshin-no-Jutsu. This turned the twins into a jiāngshī (僵屍 "stiff corpse"), a type of Chinese zombie/vampire. However, it also gave Mei-Ling and her sister unusual abilities.
Mei-Ling is actually the ward-paper (fú) on Hsien-Ko's hat. Hsien-Ko's powers cannot be fully controlled, unless Mei-Ling does so herself when she becomes the ward-paper. If she separates from Hsien-Ko, many of her sister's abilities no longer work, so they essentially fight as one. Hsien-Ko is the "body", and Mei-Ling the "mind".
Powers and abilitiesEdit
Outside from being able to transform into a spirit ward and control Hsien-Ko's body, Mei-Ling's abilities are not fully known but in the Darkstalkers OVA, she seems to be a skilled sword wielder.
