The newest headliner in the Silken Wings Circus, silk dancer Bian Meiling was recruited in the Hidden City, where she comes from an Ivory trade house. She organized the circus performers to get higher salaries; this arrangement has also resulted in their being willing to sometimes assist with missions or teach shticks.
