He is based on the traditional Chinese horse models. He is white with gray dapples, a short black mane and docked tail. He is always seen with a saddle and bridle.
A very loyal horse that tends to get scared easily. In the first movie, he is afraid of a loud sound from the burning village, and disappears during the avalanche. In the sequel, he is scared of being grabbed unexpectedly and becomes disgusted after Yao kisses him, then disappears once again for some time. Besides that, he is usually a calm, quiet horse and is very well tamed.
