Prince of Lan Ling - Help!

posts: 36 United States
Hi everyone, I don't read Chinese at all, and Google isn't helping me very much. I would love it if someone could assist with the character names for the upcoming performance The Prince of Lan Ling. Here's all I have so far:

Storyteller | Kyou Misa
Hulu Guang | Yuuma Rin
Prince of Guangning's Wife | Hanano Juria
Town Elder / Emperor | Wataru Hibiki
芍妃 / 鄭氏 (Zheng?) | Mihana Rino
Duan Shao | Maizuki Nagisa
Bandit / 趙雷 | Sumizuki Naoto
蘭妃 (Princess Lan?) | Wakakusa Moeka
逍遥君 | Hozumi Mahiro
General of Northern Qi / 李水 | Kazu Reisa
孫雨 | Tsubasa Anju
銭風 | Naoto Akira
丹妃 | Ouzuki Noa
桃妃 | Shiki Sumire
呉雪 | Hayami Shiosa
周雲 | Hakuto Seira
桂妃 | Misato Reina

Any insight is very much appreciated!

Your are welcome!

In the past, there were many ranks for imperial consorts (the Emperor's wife/concubines), and the terms get very confusing and difficult to translate. I agree with you that for our purpose, "Lady" should be a good term to use. Luckily, it seems that there isn't the confusion of different ranked consorts in this story.

Another potential point of confusion is that the word 妃, I think, can also be used in a name (though this is probably not so common). I hope that all the 妃s in this story are referring to the consorts!

This is great!! Thank you so much, I never could have done this on my own. I really appreciate your help!!

I get what you mean about 妃, as similar words in Japanese can be difficult to translate. Do you think "Lady" would suffice, since "Consort" isn't really a way you address someone in English?

Not sure if this is what you wanted, but I have tried to put in the pronunciation (in Hanyu Pinyin) of the Chinese names below.

One thing to note is that the word 妃 means consort, but I am not familiar with the story at all, so I'm not sure if it's more appropriate to translate all the names with 妃 as Consort XX instead. E.g. 芍妃 as Consort Shao instead of merely Shao Fei, 蘭妃 as Consort Lan etc.
