Wen Qing was described as a beautiful maiden with darker skin and sweet features despite an arrogant expression. She wore the glowing red sun robes of the Qishan Wen Sect, with flames dancing around her sleeves and collar to indicate her high position. 
Wen Qing was initially proud of her status as a favorite of Wen Ruohan's. She maintained that the crueler actions of the Qishan Wen Sect had nothing to do with her, insisting that she was a healer and had never killed anyone. In fact, before the start of the Sunshot Campaign, many cultivators had hoped that she would take over the Qishan Wen Sect. 
Wen Qing had a no-nonsense attune, frequently 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 extended to the point that she helped hide the two fugitives from the Yunmeng Jiang Sect until Jiang Cheng had healed. 
After the end of the Sunshot Campaign and resulting the downfall of Qishan Wen Sect, Wen Qing showed a more vulnerable side as she frantically begged Wei Wuxian to save her brother.  Nevertheless, she maintained her no-nonsense attitude, frequently scolding Wei Wuxian for the money he spent  and the injuries he obtained.
