The juniper flower symbolizes protection, referring to Juniper's role as the Ze Te Xuan Ze , protecting others. She wishes to go to astronaut camp, but cannot because she can't leave Orchid Bay City while she is the Te Xuan Ze until another member of her family is chosen. She's also hoping for a breathtaking romance with her close friend Marcus Conner. She is voiced by Lara Jill Miller , who voiced Kari Kamiya in the Saban English dub of Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02, Lambie from Doc McStuffins, and Lisa Loud from The Loud House. She has a brother named Ray Ray Lee.
June is a pre-teen Asian-American girl, with a tall build and long black straight hair which almost reaches her waist, complemented by a pink wisp running down the rest of her hair from the left side of where her hairline starts.
As mentioned by her grandmother and Monroe, it is historically known as the Mark of the Te Xuan Ze.
It is unknown whether it naturally changed color or whether it was colored by June herself, but it's been shown that other Te Xuan Ze either had the same color, a different color (Jasmine) or lacked one entirely. According to Ray Ray and various monsters, she has very long legs, excellent for out-running almost any big monster. She has three freckles above her nose forming almost a triangle. She is apparently also known for having fairly large feet for a kid her age, even though she wears only size 3 shoes. She has said about herself as having hair too straight and a flat nose.
June's every-day clothes are a pair of brown boots; a pair of deep blue jeans which flare slightly and have three crossing strings at opposite sides where the jeans split; a green T-shirt with short sleeves and dark-red edges as well as a stylized dragonfly logo of the same color. Juniper wore this same logo as hair pins on either side of her bangs before she got her powers as a grade-schooler.
Powers and Abilities
Being Te Xuan Ze, June possesses many magical and superhuman abilities that help her deal with the different creatures of the magical world, such as:
Superhuman Strength: June is super-humanly strong and is typically able to lift and take down a giant monster with little to no effort. She is strong enough to literally punch her way out of 200 feet of concrete and easily lift a 3.716-pound monster. This places her strength level slightly over 2 tons.
Superhuman Durability: The tissues of her body are considerably harder and more resistant to physical injury than those of an ordinary human. Juniper is capable of withstanding great impact forces, falls from great heights, exposure to temperature and pressure extremes, and powerful energy blasts without sustaining any serious injury.
Superhuman Speed: She is capable of running and accelerating to high speeds which a normal human could never achieve. She is fast enough to run down a building from its' roof and catch a falling person as well as fast enough to dodge attacks from demons, various monsters, and demi-gods, but not fully-powered gods.
Superhuman Reflexes: Her reflexes are heightened in a similar manner and are superior to those of the finest human athlete.
Superhuman Stamina: June's musculature produces considerably fewer fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human. She can physically exert herself at peak capacity for hours before fatigue begins to impair her.
Superhuman Agility: June's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of even the finest human athlete.
Magic: June can also use a wide array of magical artifacts (stones, scepters, wands, etc.) to aid her in battle. The spell she uses the most is the banishing spell.
Magic Vision: The basic ability of seeing through the magical barrier keeping the worlds of magic and humanity separate.
Magic Immunity: She has some degree of immunity to some magical effects, I.E. Sandman's sleeping spell.
Magical Energy Absorption: As a Te Xuan Ze she can tap into the magical energy that empowers her when she is in the elder's realm in order to enhance her powers. After absorbing magic from the source of her powers, she was able to defeat Kai Yee.
Proficiency in Sorcery: June is trained in sorcery and witchcraft. She can use spells, magical artifacts, summon portals and make potions. This combined with her own resourcefulness also makes her knowledgeable in improvising spells for completely different outcomes, such as when she used a goblin transportation item to save someone from being in an irreversible monster body forever. Her training is part of the responsibilities she takes on as Te Xuan Ze.
Experienced Combatant: June has no formal knowledge of hand-to-hand combat. However, her powers enable her to execute fighting moves with superhuman force at an opponent. Additionally, her short career as the current Te Xuan Ze has given her plenty of combat experience. According to Ah-Mah, in very little time she has become an extremely adept warrior. Many of her techniques and moves come from fiction and video-games.
Weapons Mastery: June has some mastery in the use of weapons such a swords, axes, flails and mallets despite preferring to use her own fists. Her extensive training and resourcefulness also make her very good at improvising weapons out of anything. She was also a capable user of the Wushu staff, a traditional weapon of all Te Xuan Ze.
Guitar Player: She is a proficient guitar player. Singer: She is a proficient singer.
Sports: Juniper has taken on many hobbies and is adept at most of them. Her favorite hobby sports seem to be skate-boarding, surf-boarding, basketball and volleyball.
Acting: Juniper has been cast as an actor many times before, particularly by Ophelia.
