Luduan - Wai Lin (213)

Wai Lin, a Luduan

A Luduan is a Light Fae species that seeks and demands the truth.

Character arc

Wai Lin, an old friend of Trick, is a Luduan, along with her sister Dao-Ming.

Although Luduan do not seem to "feed" on humans or other Fae, they do have an insatiable desire to know the truth. If a Luduan asks a question and it is not answered truthfully, they will do whatever they can to discover the truthful answer.

In Barometz. Trick. Pressure, Wai Lin gave Trick a Barometz bone he sought in return for his answering four questions pertaining to his past.

Dao-Ming (Luduan) (409)

Dao-Ming, a Luduan

In Destiny’s Child, Dao-Ming agreed to help Trick remember what had been blocked from his memory on the condition that he spoke the truth in response to her questions.

Not only do Luduan have the ability to detect what is truth versus lie, they are able to force humans and Fae to tell the truth (even what they are not consciously aware of) with the clicking of their long nails and a hand gesture.

Trivia

In Chinese mythology, a "luduan" was a beast which could detect truth. Rulers such as the Qianlong Emperor would surround his throne with luduan in order to properly subdue his subjects. The luduan were incense burners.[1]
