Song is a very short girl and appears only slightly older than the Four Fallen summoners. She has black hair and brown eyes, and wears green silk.
In The Dragon's Eye, however, it is revealed that Song had a difficult past and was hiding her true nature throughout the series. She was at odds with her father, the Emperor, especially when she summoned her spirit animal, who the Emperor thought was useless. Song also dealt with disappointment from her other peers, and because of those experiences she grew to hate her spirit animal and became desperate to prove herself. She resented her father for restraining her just because she was a girl, and so she plotted to kill him, which she thinks took "great confidence"; though it weighed greatly on her mental state, and she was continuously haunted by images of him.
Kana was Song's only friend throughout her struggles, and it was because of their friendship that the Zhongese princess allied with The Oathbound. Song also mentions that she had Kana had been planning the Emperor's death for many years. Later, as several characters had predicted, Song's own crazed ambition results in her defeat.
In the books
Song stops Brunhild from attacking the Four Fallen at the entrance of the Citadel, telling her to treat the Heroes like guests. She later befriends Meilin, and is revealed to be the Emperor of Zhong's daughter. When her father is killed, she is noted to look horrified.
Song first appears at the Emperor's Summer Palace in Xin Kao Dai while the Four Fallen are imprisoned by the Oathbound. She tells Kana to release them, and reveals that her father's murder was her own doing. She also releases her spirit animal, a Zhongese water dragon, and informs the Heroes that she wants The Dragon's Eye in order to make her spirit animal "great".
