Anmei is intrinsically fierce, but the world was harsh on her. Through her experiences, she has been conditioned to be meek and unable to speak up for herself. Anmei watched her mother cut a piece of her skin and put it in soup, attempting to cure her grandmother. Furthermore, Anmei's mother committed suicide because she wanted Anmei to have a better life. Anmei believes strongly in the maternal bond because of the many sacrifices her mother took for the women around her.
