Fang has olive skin and wavy dark hair with a braid behind her left ear. Fang has green eyes, a beauty mark beneath her right eye, and wears purple claw-shaped earrings. She has scars on her right arm and shoulder, and wears a blue garb resembling a traditional Indian sari adorned with tribal accessories. Fang wears a black bra top, black sleeves over her forearms, tan leather open-toed knee high boots, and two fur pelts hanging from a cord beneath the belt that holds her spear. Fang has the l'Cie brand on her right shoulder and a large tattoo on the other that somewhat resembles the two-pronged tip of her weapon, the Bladed Lance. Unlike the other l'Cie whose brands are black and progress, Fang's brand is white and static.
Fang is cocky, confident, and stubborn, and like Lightning, is sarcastic, determined, and independent, but insecure whenever talking about her past. She has a quick wit and a dry sense of humor and can be strict. Although she comes across as cocky and confident, Fang has a caring and compassionate side, especially towards Vanille, whom she would protect by any means. She cares greatly about her friends, willing to take extreme measures to protect them. In Final Fantasy XIII Episode Zero -Promise-, Lightning comments on Fang having a "wild fearlessness to her", and indeed, Fang never backs down from a fight regardless of her opponent. She also has a belief in Lady Luck.
In Final Fantasy XIII-2, Fang doesn't undergo any big change and remains largely the same. In Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Fang still greatly cares about Vanille but seems to have become detached and resigned towards the world's condition and the new status quo. She now also comes across as hesitant at times as she looks unsure of what to do, not as sure of things as she used to be.
