Character Story Entries
Funeral ceremonies allow mortals to leave this world with dignity.
And Liyue’s Wangsheng Funeral Parlor is said to be painting the last strokes on the scrolls of people’s lives in the most respectful way.
Traditional funerals include multiple steps such as holding a wake, burial, putting up a memorial plaque… All of which are subject to strict rules.
Regardless of their social standing and level of wealth, all who depart deserve a ceremony that would do them honor. This is the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor’s client service philosophy.
One would think that such a reputable organization ought to be led only by an individual of utmost learning and sagacity.
Yet the heavy mantle of the 77th Director has fallen on the shoulders of a young lady like Hu Tao.
She has got quite a reputation in Liyue. Whenever someone mentions Hu Tao, their neighbors find it extremely hard to navigate the conversation.
Although she is widely praised for her wit and shrewdness, her eccentric notions are not as welcome, as she often lets her imagination run wild.
As a three-year-old, she would read through volumes of classic texts while doing handstands. At six, she would cut classes and fall asleep in coffins. When she was eight, she started living in the parlor and learning the etiquette of funeral ceremonies…
One would never use the word “measured” to describe her behavior.
During her teenage years, Hu Tao was tasked with conducting a funeral ceremony for the first time.
The parlor’s undertakers and consultants were anticipating her debut with their stomachs in knots as if they were suspended over the peaks of Jueyun Karst.
Fortunately, Hu Tao treats the parlor’s operations with the utmost importance and is always looking to grow her business.
“At the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, the living give us Mora to see the dead on their way. We have a responsibility to both parties, so we gotta make sure both sides are happy.”
When it comes to the parlor’s rules, Hu Tao knows them all like the back of her hand.
Each day when the parlor closes its doors, Hu Tao invites consultants from different walks of life to pass their teachings on to the undertakers.
“The funeral tradition is like science. It cannot be performed based on impressions and personal habits.”
Of all the lecturers, Zhongli is the most revered one. As such, his lessons have proven to be the most effective in cultivating the competence of Wangsheng Funeral Parlor’s undertakers.
Despite often being teased by Hu Tao due to his old-fashioned style, he is also the person that she trusts the most.
Apart from that, Hu Tao always instructs her undertakers to respect their clients’ wishes and not insist on any particular form of funeral.
“Some clients want nothing more than a peaceful ceremony, some opt for a more lively style of event. There are also wealthier clients who would request a funeral arrangement of the most pompous kind. The services we provide have to be tailor-made according to the clients’ needs.”
Ever since Hu Tao took over, the parlor’s operations have been solid and reliable, with ceremonies conducted so tactfully that quite a few superstitious people in Liyue have changed their attitudes towards funerals.
Even so, Hu Tao still has a tendency to wander off, disappearing as soon as her undertakers are busy listening to lectures.
The hobbies and interests of this young director are just as eccentric as her personality, and yet it is difficult to say with certainty if those activities are of a purely leisurely nature.
Hu Tao’s shadow can be seen in the moonlit docks or at the highest, most precarious viewpoints in the mountains, where she’s likely to take in the scenery and shape her thoughts into beautiful poetry.
She loves to roam freely at night, looking for inspiration. When it strikes her, no matter where she is, she cannot help but compose a poem on the spot.
If they are particularly lucky, the traveling merchants taking respite around the Huaguang Stone Forest can spot a mysterious girl keeping herself amused in solitude.
Hu Tao can play a four-player card game accompanied by no one for hours on end.
That said, the joys of engaging in such activities remain a mystery to all but Hu Tao herself.
The Ministry of Civil Affairs is guarded by two life-like stone lions, a symbol of power and authority.
However, Hu Tao, who happened to be passing by the ministry building one day, saw them in a different light. At first, she examined the lions with a thoughtful look, but soon enough, her pensive face gave way to a wide smile, as she slapped them on the fore-paws.
From that moment on, Hu Tao often visited and petted the stone statues. Not only would she talk to them, but also give them pet names — Whiskers for the one on the left and Mittens for the one on the right.
On occasion, she would even bring a bucket of water and a big brush to bathe them, each move so careful and deliberate that one might think that they were her actual pets.
As it happened, another feline, a living and breathing calico cat, could be found enjoying the local delicacies in front of Xinyue Kiosk, not too far from the ministry building. One day, some city folk came to play with the restaurant’s favorite, providing an interesting foil for Hu Tao’s peculiarities. Met with befuddled gazes of the bystanders, Hu Tao showed unwavering confidence.
“Sure, your kitty’s cute, but the same can be said about my Whiskers and Mittens. Their fur might be harder, but they’re still just as fluffy! Any animal that brings people joy may become a pet. And when it comes to majestic looks, your little fur-ball simply can’t measure up to my lions!”
Suffice to say that this explanation was met with even greater consternation from the onlookers.
Yet the group of people shocked the most and most often by Hu Tao’s antics were the ministry guards. Soft footsteps could often be heard in front of the building at around midnight. Initially, the guards suspected that it had been a thief preparing to rob officials. To their unceasing surprise, it would turn out to just be a young lady playing with the stone lions.
The guards were faced with an even bigger conundrum when, once everyone had reluctantly got used to her presence, Hu Tao discontinued her visits.
That meant that the responsibility for cleaning the statues fell on the guards’ shoulders once again.
Subsequently, they decided to keep guard by the lions for many days, anticipating Hu Tao’s return. Once they finally had the opportunity to ask her why she would not visit anymore, they received the most absurd of answers.
“Whiskers and Mittens are adults now and can take care of themselves! Excuse me, I’m running late for my heart-to-heart with a Statue of the Seven regarding the meaning of life!”
Not long after her initial meeting with the little zombie, Hu Tao decided that, as her self-proclaimed true friend, she should grant Qiqi eternal peace.
Hu Tao would go on to kidnap Qiqi several times following much deliberation in every instance, including calculating the most auspicious time for the ceremony, aiming to follow the standard procedure of cremation, after which she would place Qiqi in a tomb on the outskirts of the city.
In fact, she would have succeeded already if not for Baizhu’s timely interventions.
Each time the Bubu Pharmacy’s owner managed to catch up with them, Hu Tao had already had Qiqi packed in a bag, with only her head sticking out, staring in utter confusion as Hu Tao was vigorously digging a hole for the pyre.
Afterwards, Hu Tao sent Qiqi an apology letter, in which she expressed deep regret that she had not been able to lay Qiqi to rest fast enough.
In Hu Tao’s eyes, Qiqi passed away a long time ago, but has been trapped in this world and cannot free herself of her eternal suffering.
Baizhu, for his part, had grown ever more relentless in his pursuit of eternal life after meeting Qiqi. This act of defiance against the cycle of life and death was unacceptable to Hu Tao.
She wanted to bury Qiqi not only out of consideration for her friend but also to restore the natural order.
But Qiqi could not disagree more, as she was afraid of death and disliked Hu Tao for her attempts.
Because the struggle between Hu Tao and her had been going on for so long, Qiqi has experienced a breakthrough. She has started to remember places where she might hide to avoid being captured by Hu Tao.
Perhaps it was due to those desperate survival efforts that Hu Tao decided to do something unusual and dig deeper into Qiqi’s past.
The story of her accident and the mystery of the adepti… That series of coincidences filled Hu Tao’s heart with hesitation.
Since Qiqi’s will to live is so strong, she should not be forced to move on. Given the circumstances, she could only be treated as a rare exception that eludes the natural laws.
Ever since, Hu Tao’s attitude towards Qiqi has changed drastically, to the point that she would pamper her.
Unfortunately, the damage has been done and Hu Tao has become Qiqi’s bugbear. The little zombie may need several years more to let go of her grievances.
Hu Tao is not, in fact, best known for her role as Director, but for her other great accomplishment: the creation of poetry.
She dubs herself the “versemonger of the darkest alleys,” and free verse flows forth untamed from her mouth whenever she has free time to be out on the streets.
The “Hilitune” is Hu Tao’s most famous work, well-loved not only by the people of the harbor, but ever on the lips of children as far as Qingce Village as well.
Hobbyists and critics alike were greatly surprised by the simple but profound originality of the “Hilitune” and its creation, and went to Wanwen Bookhouse in droves to search for the works of this great poet. Unfortunately, Hu Tao’s anthologies, named “Fiddlesticks” and “Of Common Lives” respectively, have yet to be published.
Xingqiu, ever immersed in books, also wanted to meet this strange person, and so chose an auspicious date to visit, bringing a gift with him.
The two hit it off immediately, and they exchanged pointers and impromptu poetry in Wangsheng’s main hall — and when faced with the poetry of Xingqiu’s traditional, artistic bent, Hu Tao could always return in kind with some strange and marvelous verse.
And there was meaning in the chaos, indeed, a rhythm to the bizarre that anyone could perceive, and it was catchy, too.
Thus did she “beat the old master with untrained fists,” leaving Xingqiu at a loss for words.
At length, the poetic spar ended amiably, and they have been friends ever since, reading and composing poetry with one another when they have the time to meet.
Over time, Chongyun, too, was pulled in to serve as an umpire, their laughter filling the streets.
The poems born from these sessions would also be recorded by bystanders.
If ever you should hear a pair of matched verses, one strict and the other playful, you are most likely to have heard one created jointly by Hu Tao and Xingqiu.
