An outworlder who ended up residing on the Xianzhou by accident. She is now a passionate and vivacious street performer.
With her real name being Guinevere, Guinaifen is the Xianzhou name given to her by her good friend Sushang.
Faced with a whole new life on the Luofu and relying on her adoration of Xianzhou culture, Guinaifen quickly learned skills that would keep her clothed and fed — such as slurping noodles in a handstand, smashing slabs without harming the people it was placed upon,catching bullets with bare hands, and so on.
