Wen Qing is described as a beautiful maiden with darker skin and sweet features despite an arrogant expression. She has dark, ink-colored eyes and wears the glowing red sun robes of the Qishan Wen Clan, with flames dancing around her sleeves and collar to indicate her high position.
Wen Qing is initially proud of her status as a favorite of Wen Ruohan's. She maintains that the crueler actions of the Qishan Wen Clan have nothing to do with her, insisting that she is a healer and has never killed anyone. In fact, before the start of the Sunshot Campaign, many cultivators hope that she will take over the Qishan Wen Clan.
Wen Qing has a no-nonsense attitude, scolding her younger brother for his timid nature and the risk he took rescuing Wei Wuxian and Jiang Cheng from Wen Chao. Nevertheless, her compassion extends to the point that she helps hide the two fugitives from the Yunmeng Jiang Clan until Jiang Cheng has healed.
After the end of the Sunshot Campaign results in the downfall of the Qishan Wen Clan, Wen Qing shows a more vulnerable side as she frantically begs Wei Wuxian to save her brother. Nevertheless, she maintains her no-nonsense attitude, frequently scolding Wei Wuxian for the money he spends and the injuries he obtains.
