|“||You do look like me with long hair. Ha ha... glad to meet you, I'm Bai Jinjin from the Cloud Empire. This must be fate.||”|
Bai Jinjin is a girl very similar to Nikki with the same hair, skin, and eye color. However, her hair is worn in a short bob and straightened bangs held by a black barrette with a yellow star on it. She is a little shorter than Nikki herself. Her attire is modern and mainly blue in color, accent by floral designs, feminine accessories and shoes, and lace fabrics.
Normally she wears a dull blue plaid dress with matching pumps that have ribbons on the ankle adorned by a star, matching her clip and bracelet. Lace fabric is sewn over her dress, with sleeves beneath the shoulder and a black collar on her neck. Another casual outfit consists of a white blouse with sheer, long sleeves, and a pale blue floral skirt with a lace layer over it. This is paired with a pair of slip-ons and a pearl clip.
At one point she is also shown wearing a flowing white daxiushan (大袖衫) with a flower hair accessory.
Besides looks, Bai Jinjin is also shown to share a few personality traits with Nikki as well. She is a gentle and calm girl who shows hesitation and concern. But she is also shown having an amount of trust issues with others if they act strangely or withdrawn; if she discovers that someone she cares for has lied to her or hidden something important from her, she tends to react very badly.
Bai Jinjin is the daughter of a very rich and powerful family from the Cloud Empire. She is also the cousin of Bai Yongxi, the royal mentor of the Empress of Cloud and the head of one of the Great Four Families Of Cloud. When she and a middle-class stylist/designer named Zhong Lizi fell in love, her clan and especially her father opposed to their relationship due to their social differences. The stubborn and gentle Bai Jinjin does not let this deter her, however, and willingly left her family to be with him. Even when they have sent more than one fighter and assassin to force her back into the clan, she refuses to return, working with her lover as a stylist and running away from her overprotective relatives.
Bai Jinjin met Nikki at the Designer's Tea Party, when she noticed Nikki and her friends staring at her. She and Nikki share a strong resemblance, except for hair length, which caused Lunar to exclaim that they look like twins. Bai Jinjin introduced her boyfriend, Zhong Lizi, whose designs she was promoting, trying to raise bride money since he did not want her to have to live in poverty with him.
Bai Jinjin left to buy desserts for her new friends, but returned to the booth for money, only to see Zhong Lizi secretly putting Mira in a bunny suit costume of his design since he believed Jinjin would not want to put it on.She was very upset and ran away in tears.
Zhong Lizi, Nikki, and her friends searched for Bai Jinjin, eventually meeting a waitress at a nearby restaurant who saw her run into the kitchen's back alley with a friend. When they managed to sneak into the alley, they found only Neva, who questioned their relationship with Bai Jinjin. Once Nikki defeated her in styling, she led them to Bai Jinjin, who explained why she got so upset: she was not jealous of Mira, but was upset because Zhong Lizi did not trust her judgement and kept secrets from her. Jinjin and Lizi tearfully reconciled, promising to always trust each other.
Dansu attempted to get Bai Jinjin to return home, but was beaten by Nikki, and had to leave. Bai Jinjin revealed that she and Zhong Lizi had already eloped, which is why Dansu had followed them. Zhong Lizi had originally planned to leave alone and return only when he was successful and rich, but that day he found Bai Jinjin waiting for him with her bags packed.
Bai Jinjin and Zhong Lizi then left in a hurry before Dansu could change her mind about letting them go, promising to one day treat Nikki and her friends to the best restaurant in Cloud Empire.
After the tea party, Bai Jinjin and Zhong Lizi tried to head north, but the further north they got, the worse Bai Jinjin's health became, possibly because of the freezing weather. They finally decided to simply return to the Cloud Empire, since it is their homeland and to hide in plain sight. They reunited with Nikki and her friends at an inn run by Lu Yinian, but people from the Bai family (led by a beautiful but cold woman named Qiong, who turns out to have been the waitress from the Tea Party) were pursuing them in order to reclaim some "precious treasure". Nikki managed to impersonate Bai Jinjin long enough to allow her to escape, but Qiong referred to Bai Jinjin as the "treasure" and decided to take Nikki instead. Luckily, Lu Yinian was able to defeat them in styling and prevent Nikki's kidnapping.
It's strongly implied that Bai Jinjin not only ran away from the Bai Clan, but took at least two very valuable items belonging to them when she eloped with Zhong Lizi. She can be seen wearing parts of the suit Stunning Beauty in the styling battle of 7-6 Quick-witted Nikki, as pictured below in the gallery, so it is possible that the dress is one of the treasures.
When Nikki and her group meet up with Zhong Lizi as they try to return to the Cloud Empire, Zhong Lizi says that she's back with her family, but not due to their efforts: she willingly returned to the Cloud Capital to use her clan's influence on the Cloud authorities to try stopping the war between Cloud and the North Kingdom.
Nikki and her friends find out that Bai Jinjin is being kept at home in order to keep her in line, so she has requested her cousin Bai Yongxi visit Apple in order to purchase clothes for her. This is iseful later, since Yongxi is dismissive to the group at first but when Lu Yinian (who now has a business in Apple) tells him that they're friends of Bai Jinjin, he warms up to them.
It is often noted by others how much they look alike, although they are not related. Nikki cares a lot for her and, when she's almost kidnapped in the Moon Inn, Nikki decides to take her place and helps fend off her attackers.
Zhong Lizi is her fiancé. They work together and are very loving, but she initially appeared untrusting and worried over him out of concerns he may have been keeping a secret from her.
Being middle-class, Zhong Lizi is seen by Bai Jinjin's extremely noble and rich family as not good enough for her, and he desires to become a famous stylist so they'll accept him. Jinjin already loves him, however, and supports their shared dreams via running away from her rich home and becoming his model and partner. She willingly returns to her family later, hoping to use her influence to help end the war, whereas Zhong Lizi joins the Cloud Empire's military and rises very fast among their ranks.
Bai Yongxi, the tutor of the Cloud Empress and one of the most powerful people in the Cloud Empire, is Bai Jinjin's cousin. They're quite close and he seems to view her as a younger sister. When Lu Yinian tells Yonxi in Chapter 17 that Nikki and her group rescued Jinjin from danger, his initially cold and snippy attitude becomes much friendlier.
