Jing Ke not only made a living out of assassinations, but also was a hedonist individual who loved reading, swordsmanship, chats with her wise friend and - more than anything - alcohol.

Having a present to offer the First Emperor, obtaining a knife dipped in poison meant for assassinations, but just before the time for implementing the plan came, Prince Dan began to doubt whatever Jing Ke - who was awaiting for a friend that would throw his life away as an assistant in the assassination - ｢had not lost her nerve｣.
Being under suspicion, Jing Ke had no choice but to depart to Qin with a man that the Crown Prince had recommended as her assistant. However, during the assassination attempt, the man who was supposed to support her became unable to move out of fear and Jing Ke had to pursuit the assassination all alone; but maybe due to the Emperor's good luck, she failed to catch him by a narrow margin.
It has been said that, having made her mind, Jing Ke was killed while scorning the First Emperor. Despite being an assassin, Jing Ke returned to dust without being able to accomplish her kill.
