Sang Ye - Release Exterior: Wind Cold
(LU,LV) - (4.5-15g)


The Smoking / Boxing silk worm

A little wind heat doesn't bother Jo: the tobacco smoking silkworm who was so tough he ignored his dry cough in the ring. Whenever he stepped into the ring his LYR rising prompted him to punch those bright eyed youngin's hot blooded enough to bleed in the ring. 

When the silk worm fell in love with another type of worm from a Chrysanthemum Flower they decided to get married (note: often paired with Ju Hua).
