Cixi is Zixin's wife or the Empress of the Red Kingdom.
Cixi is a beautiful gem and a legendary beauty born from poverty and of wedlock. Her father, who hated how his daughter reminded him of her mother, sold her to the House of Geishas in exchange for money to get out of debt.
However once the girl grew up in an cultured environment, she garned much attention from the wealthy class men. Other women in the Red Kingdom Agana despised and felt envy towards her. Many men rich or poor fell in love with her appearance rather than her personality or her true self. But to Cixi, it didn't matter, as long as they sent her gifts and wealth. She never wanted to live in poverty ever again. But she disliked being mistreated as an object of desire.
She soon became one of the richest ladies of her trade but unmarried and not willing to. Until she met Kyren and Zixin who were related to the noble families of the Red Kingdom. It wasn't until then she set her sights higher, wanted to be untouchable to men except to the best and most poweful man. And maybe as the most powerful woman be able to change the world around her.
She told all of the men who longed for her hand in marriage that she'd only accept the most powerful man to be her husband. Despite knowing his retainer Kyren was smitten over the beauty, Zixin soon became the most powerful man claiming the most powerful oni and Cixi to be his wife once he became the Red Emperor.

Zixin is Miyu's older brother, Cixi's husband and the head of the Red Kingdom Clan.
Zixin lived a sheltered life in the castle walls of Agana. However he was taught by the best teachers and protected by the greatest men as he was the prince of the Kingdom. His best friend and retainer was Kyren, who was his contact to the outside world when they were young children.
It wasn't until Kyren told Zixin of his failure proposal to Cixi the most beautiful lady in their generation. However Cixi didn't have the heart to choose which of the men in the Red Kingdom who were her favorite, rather she was a complicated woman who wanted the best man, and thus stated she'd only marry the most powerful man.
As a prince, Zixin was considered a prodigy. His strong bloodline enabled him to summon powerful oni and win the hearts of his people as he proved himself to be a powerful leader and general. Once his father the emperor died, Zixin became the most powerful ruler in the kingdom due to the strongest oni in his possession.
Zixin then married Cixi despite knowing his friend Kyren loving her. However even if the man had it all, he wanted more power. The Emperor Zixin felt that the Red Kingdom was belittled by their allies the Black Kingdom and wished to take over the lands of the Black King to show their superiority. However his retainers did not follow his commands and instead betrayed him and the main family as they wanted his power and security that the Black Kingdom offered.
The clan rebelled and wanted to overthrow Zixin and his outrageous plans. But more importantly his friend Kyren, once thought to be his greatest ally betrayed his trust. He was stuck in a situation where he decided to commit suicide to keep his oni passed down within the bloodline and have his oni protect Miyu.
