Xian Mei is one of four heroes in Dead Island. She is one of the special survivors who is immune to the mysterious zombie virus, Kuru, that has claimed the lives of hundreds of others on the island of Banoi. She is currently a receptionist for the Royal Palms Resort, when in reality, she is actually an undercover police officer from Hong Kong sent to spy on the wealthy tourists on Banoi. Unfortunately, she found herself stuck on the island as a result of the outbreak, and must fight to stay alive and figure out what happened.
Her skills and fighting style is described as one of a rogue's expertise, being quick with the knives.  Her skill tree has three categories - Bloodrage, Combat, and Survival.  She has been confirmed to be the Assassin class, being an expert with knives and blades.
The night before the zombie plague seemingly takes over the island, Xian Mei can be found in the hotel bathroom assisting an injured woman who is lying on the floor, presumably infected with the zombie virus.
After a nightmarish journey on Banoi Island, Xian Mei is able to escape the island and continues the story in Dead Island Riptide.
In October 1999, Xian as twelve. She was home with her mother Jiao Mei in their six floor apartment in Beijing. Her grandmother and Li was planning to visit. Her father's partner Detective Sergeant Paul Ho arrived and told his mother that his father had been killed apprehending a gang of drug smugglers. During the funeral preparation Xian vowed she would honor her father's name by following in his footsteps.
She became the foremost martial artist for her age and gender in the world. She was inducted into China's first all-female Special Forces squad, but she quickly realized the squad was little more than a glorified public relations stunt. As soon as the induction ceremony was over, the squad was broken up and its members distributed around the globe on ‘special assignments’. Xian Mei’s assignment was to go to the Royal Palm Hotel in Banoi, and to spy on the decadent rich, using her receptionist’s job as cover. What Xian Mei found particularly insulting was that her superiors didn’t even bother to pretend she was doing vital work. It was abundantly clear to her that she had been shunted aside simply for the sake of convenience – a case of out of sight, out of mind.
Her government had paid for everything to her trip - her flights, her expenses – and she could not leave without their say-so. Even resigning from the Special Forces squad and flying home by scraping together her own meager savings was out of the question. She would be ostracized and labeled a trouble-maker, and it would bring great shame on her family.
- NOTE: Canonically, the other heroes accompany Xian Mei with her journey on Banoi though they only appear in cutscenes. The follow story below is written to only include hero though the other heroes all go through the same experiences
Xian Mei woke up after partying at the concert located outside the Royal Palms Resort. After making her way through a seemingly-abandoned and ransacked hotel, she found herself being chased by zombies. After being attacked and bitten, she awoke in a bungalow on the beach. The terrified survivors inside informed her that her savior, John Sinamoi the lifeguard, was under attack by the undead outside. Xian Mei is able to save Sinamoi and work with the survivors to secure the Lifeguard Tower. From there, Xian Mei helps Sinamoi with his tasks, as well as the quests belonging to the various survivors throughout the Banoi Holiday Resort. The goal of Sinamoi’s group is to stay put and await rescue. Xian Mei is tasked with getting an amplifier from the Lighthouse so Sinamoi can try and radio the mysterious Voice they spoke with earlier from the beach bungalow. At the lighthouse is another group of survivors who want to get off the island. Xian Mei is then forced to help the lighthouse survivors, including turning on the power generator so the beacon can be activated to get the attention of rescue crews. The amplifier is no good in creating a strong enough strength to contact the Voice. Xian Mei’s next task is to get food supplies for the Lifeguard Tower survivors. Sinamoi finds the food runs out just as fast as they find them and requests Xian Mei to go into the city to find food, medicine, and supplies for his group. In order to get through the vehicle-clogged roadways, Xian Mei must retrieve an armored truck from the hotel parking garage and reinforce it with the help of a local mechanic. Xian Mei is successful in completing his mission and recruits Jin, the mechanic’s daughter into her group, as the mechanic is infected and does not want Jin in harm’s way.
Xian Mei arrives in the city to find it overrun and the church under attack. After securing it, she works with Mother Helen, who is leading the refugees inside the church, to restore the church’s water supply in return for help finding food. After the water is restored, Helen informs that the city has been looted and food is gone, except in the Wealthy District across the river, in which the bridges leading to it have been destroyed. After helping various survivors at the church and across the city, Joseph agrees to lead Xian Mei through the sewers to the other side. Xian Mei makes it to the City Hall, packed with survivors and police officers, only to be declined assistance by the mayor. Ready to give up, Jin demands Xian Mei to find food to help everyone or she takes the truck and leaves her behind. Xian Mei makes her way to the supermarket, defeats the gang of bandits inhabiting the store, and secures food in which Jin and Joseph drive back to the church. Xian Mei arrives at the church to find an injured Joseph, who informs that Jin tried to give supplies to the police station only to be kidnapped by the thugs who took it over. Xian Mei makes her way to the station, defeats the gang and its leader, and rescues an injured Jin. The food is given to the church and brought back to the Lifeguard Tower. Sinamoi informs that Dominic went to the hotel to try and use the antenna to contact the Voice. The attempt is successful and the Voice reveals himself to be Colonel Ryder White, on the prison island off-shore. In order for Xian Mei to reach it, she must enlist the help of Mowen, a jungle smuggler, who knows his way around the minefield that surrounds the island.
Jin accompanies Xian Mei into the jungle and helps the residents of an ambushed village, getting revenge by killing the jungle warlord Afran and his army who attacked the village after zombies swarmed it. After revenge is served, Xian Mei rides in a boat and meets Mowen, who claims he does not know how to get to the island, but instead brings her to a secret government laboratory in the jungle. Xian Mei arrives at the Geo Pharm Laboratory and meets a group of surviving scientists. They explain that they think they know what caused the outbreak, a mysterious strain of the Kuru virus found in the Kuruni tribe, a group of natives living in the jungle. Xian Mei meets with the tribe’s shaman, Ope, who agrees to bring her to his now-abandoned village after completing a challenge proving her to be a worthy warrior. The shaman explains that his village was overrun when his tribesmen ate the flesh of the deceased, stating that they came back as zombies. At the catacombs atop of the mountain overlooking the village, they find Yerema, Ope’s daughter. Ope is killed just before he can harm his daughter, who he believed to be infected. Yerema is in fact infected, but immune to the virus. She is brought back to the laboratory so she can be examined and the leading researcher, Dr. West, hopes to find a cure with her blood. Xian Mei returns to the city and resort to get supplies and allow Jin to complete unfinished business before Mowen takes them to the prison island. Just before they depart, they alerted that something has gone wrong at the lab. They find it overrun with everyone dead and Yerema locked in a cage. She explained that Dr. West was taking too much blood from her and she tried to escape by locking herself in a cage. Dr. West accidentally released captive zombies by unlocking the wrong cages and he, along with his surviving staff, was killed.
Yerema is brought to the prison where they find roughly fifty prisoners have survived the carnage. Xian Mei is forced in completing several tasks for the lead prisoner in order to be given access to where Ryder White is situated. Unfortunately, a riot breaks out against the lead prisoner and zombies, lured by the sounds of the riot, attack, killing everyone. Mowen was able to help Jin and Yerema escape into a vent but he was killed. The women meet up with Xian Mei and the ascend upwards to the elevator, but are gassed by Ryder White, who steals the antidote retrieved from the lab. They are greeted by a prisoner, Charon who uses the alias Kevin. Charon explains what happened and they all head for the rooftop where Ryder is about to escape with his infected wife. After a shootout against a squad of BIDF soldiers, Xian Mei and the others confront Ryder. Jin tries to explain that it is too late for Emily, Ryder’s wife, as she is fully infected. She releases Emily from her constraints and she attacks Ryder. Ryder is bitten and kills his wife and out of rage, shoots Jin twice, who falls off the helipad and is killed. Ryder then mutates into a special Infected only to be defeated and killed. Xian Mei, along with Charon and Yerema, boards the helicopter and flies off the island.

Playing as Xian Mei
Xian Mei's speciality is bladed weapons which can be found early on in the game in the form of short-range knives and cleavers. These are fine to begin with although they require players to get very close to use them - take the quests Family Matters and House Full of Surprises early on to get hold of some machetes; they have decent range and power to compliment Xian Mei's skills well. When the player reaches Moresby City, they should go east from the Church and find the merchant behind the broken-fence-and-dumpster barricade under a makeshift awning (Cahaya Dian)- he generally sells some powerful military machetes, so when story progress is made, make a return visit to upgrade Xian Mei's inventory. These blades will be effective until the player can find some wakazashis and katanas in the jungle; these take full advantage of Xian Mei's sharp weapons expertise.
Xian Mei Players will spend most of their time in the thick of combat and up to their shoulders in zombies - try to make use of Xian Mei's various talents in her skill trees to enhance her staying power (such as skills that enhance her stamina and weapon durabilities) and allow her to remain in close combat for longer. MedKits are available in merchant inventories frequently from Moresby city onwards so players should keep their inventory topped up with them in case of emergencies.
Xian Mei's Bloodrage fury skill suffers from a very short range and although it also boosts her speed, players have to be close to make use of it. Against strong enemies like Thugs and Floaters there is also the danger that the player will be knocked down and a large chunk of rage wasted while they get to their feet - any skills that can overcome these setbacks are recommended and thankfully two are available early on. Assassin's Guile increases Xian Mei's maximum health while on fury, which helps if enemies get glancing blows when you close in for the kill. Lightning Moves will enhance her speed to such a degree that it makes enemies look like they're standing still. Bloodrage can be effective, but time and investments have to be made into it first.
Xian Mei's combat skills are centered around her expertise with a blade and she soon becomes a deadly force in melee range. Try out Backstab; it increases melee damage when you strike enemies from behind and - for seasoned melee players - dodging and evading to strike enemies from their blind spots should be common practise, especially when using Xian Mei. Backstab will also completely destroy Rams and help with tactics against Floaters.
Xian Mei has some great skills to cause lasting damage to enemies and if players invest some time in developing them, it's easy to see why she has the title 'assassin'. Deep Wounds gives players a decent chance to cause bleeding damage with sharp weapons; the duration of which can be extended to impressive degrees by the Serrated Blade skill. By the time players have access to Poisonous - a skill on the fifth tier - they should also have some decent poison-inflicting modifications to take advantage of it. All these talents gel together with Xian Mei's penultimate skill, Master Assassin. The effects of poison AND bleeding damage will be increased by a large amount with every rank taken, turning Xian Mei into a walking blender that virtually nothing will awalk away from.
A truly awesome weapon to give to Xian Mei is the Zed's Demise katana, a sword that is given as a reward when you complete Banoi Butcher sidequest in the Prison. Although it can only be found late in the game, modify it with a Deathstalker mod and with the above combination of skills, Xian Mei players will be whirlwinds of death.
Players should try to get hold of Life Insurance early on which decreases the cash penalty they recieve when he/she dies; combine this with Merchant (a skill available on tier 5 of the skill tree which decreases the cost of bought items) and Xian Mei makes large monetary savings that can be used to buy MedKits keeping Xian Mei alive for longer in the middle of a zombie horde. These skills balance out well with her single-rank skills - Medic, Field Medicine and her ultimate survival skill, Surgeon General - which increase the amount of health players get from MedKits. This will not only make Xian Mei players the berserkers of the game, she can also become a very effective field medic in co-op games.
Players should consider investing in the skills Vampire and Endurance. Both of these talents give impressive boosts to Xian Mei's stamina; when ploughing through crowds of zombies they will make a big difference (and if the worst comes to the worst, at least the player will have enough stamina to run away!).
- The following is the official description taken from the Dead Island website:
- Xian Mei is an employee at the Royal Palm Resort, born and raised in China, she chose an occupation that allowed her to leave her country of birth in order to experience different people and cultures - Banoii is her first placement outside of her homeland.
- She is a fast learner, intelligent, and also - as a passionate sportswoman - quick on her feet. Having just arrived at the island, Xian Mei was responsible for a myriad of menial tasks at the hotel, before starting work as a receptionist. This opportunity to meet and greet all the different nationalities that visited the hotel was ideal for Xian Mei, as it provided a perfect source of inspiration for her dreams of travelling the globe.
- That is of course, before suddenly the world around her begins to crumble...
- Promotional artwork of Xian Mei seems to differ than her actual in-game character model.
- The Game Text files have the following scrapped closing dialogue for Xian Mei:
- "No one can deny who I am. What I've done. What I'm capable of. I thought I needed to prove my worth to my superiors. But now I know they are not and never were my superiors. It doesn't matter what they believe. It matters what I believe. I found the source of this. I found the conspiracy of greed that would sacrifice millions to make billions. They operated unmolested with the tacit approval of those who I thought were protecting us. Well now everyone will know the truth. Will it matter? Will it make a difference in the end. It will to me. For I am Xian Mei and I have honored my father's memory."
- Dialogue of the survivor in the game files. Often portions of this text has changed or is not used in the final version of the game.
Stay still. Let me help you.
I'll help you up!
You're okay! Come on!
You're dead now!
I am tiring!
Help me! Please!
They are killing me!
I need help!!
Aaah! Get it off me! Get it off!
I think I lost a button.
I'm so tired…
Don't give up.
They nearly killed us!
You must pay attention!
Don't let me down again.
They could have killed us.
You are a warrior!
You honor us with your bravery.
I don't hit like a girl!
I set you free!
It's killing me!
No, no, don't, DON'T!
I will honor your memory!
Here they are.
They come again!
It is time for these devils to die!
We will die with honor!
I kill you!
Why don't you die!
Just what I needed!
Oh, my God…
I can't feel my legs…
My time has come…
At least I will have died with honor…
Finally, I have honored my father.
It is nothing.
It barely broke the skin.
Do not concern yourself…
I am fine.
A minor injury.
I'm am hurt.
I think I need a doctor…
I'll try to keep up.
Something is broken inside.
I think I lost a button.
Stay together. I kill your faster.
There is no end to them…
I pray for you…
Finally, at peace…
Anything will help.
What's in here?
What do we have here?
Out of ammo!
Need more bullets!
Who has some ammo?
I need a weapon!
There's no airport around here…
No thank you.
Thank you no.
Go! Go! Go!
The bigger they are…
Oh, my God!
Get up, I kill you!
Beautiful… For a moment, you can almost forget…
Why do you wait?
No time to rest!
Out of ammunition!
I need more ammunition!
I am out of bullets!
I need more bullets!
I used my last bullet!
My weapon is damaged…
I need a new weapon!
I will use my feet and my fists!
This weapon is useless!
I am a warrior without a sword.
How can these people be so selfish?
Only a matter of time before the poor riot and break down the gates.
So many bugs…
I am not dressed for this…
What do they do in this place?
The poor animals…
It is like stepping back into time…
They’ve lived like this for centuries…
They keep the worst of the worst here…
I don't like the way their looking at me...
What could this possibly be?
My superiors will not be happy…
For a moment, you can almost forget.
The world can be so beautiful...and so ugly.
The poor always suffer the most…
Where's the military? Why aren't they here.

Dead Island Riptide
Xian Mei and her fellow survivors from Banoi land on the HMAS Avenger in hopes of finding rescue. Instead, they are detained and quarantined by Colonel Hardy and Frank Serpo. Serpo and his medic do tests on the four immune survivors and lock them in the brig. However, that night an outbreak triggers on the ship, turning much of the crew into zombies. The ship has also found itself trapped in a monsoon. Xian Mei eventually reaches the brig and puts down the zombified captain so Hardy may gain control of the ship, but it slams into the rocks sending the survivors overboard.
Xian Mei awakens on the beach on Palanai Island by Harlow Jordan. The woman instructs Xian Mei to head for the Paradise Survival Camp, where other survivors have gathered. When Xian Mei arrives at the camp, she finds it being attacked, so she helps defend it. It is at the camp that Xian Mei finds her teammates from Banoi and Harlow returns from the beach with Colonel Hardy. After a fight is prevented, the survivors agree on a plan to reach Henderson for evacuation. In order to do so, Xian Mei is sent out to find the road that leads to the city, only to discover the bridge has been washed out from the monsoon. She is tasked with getting help from the town of Halai and she comes across a missionary, Marcus Villa, who says he is able to help. However, it is revealed that he is slightly sadistic and believes that by eating the flesh of the immune, the zombie plague will be vanquished. When no one reveals themselves as one of the immune, he sets the Paradise camp on fire. After defending themselves from a zombie horde, Harlow eventually rescues the survivors from the burning camp and they regroup in Halai. With no help from Marcus, the survivors turn to Dr. Kessler, a researcher living at the laboratory in the jungle. He is able to provide help and a map to the tunnels that eventually lead to the city. With a plan in tow, Xian Mei and the survivors leave Halai and arrive at the ruins of the Santa Maria Mission. The passageway beneath the old church is flooded, so the loud pump must be used to drain the water. While the pump is on, dozens of zombies attack the ruins, but the survivors are successful in defending themselves and make their way through the tunnels. After battling against zombies, obstacles, and a group of smugglers, they reach the Pinai Ferry Station.
However, as soon as the survivors emerge from the tunnels, Wayne complains of feeling sick. It is revealed that he was bitten and was abandoned in the tunnels by Harlow. He had come into contact with some of the chemicals stored in the tunnels and he mutated into a Wrestler. Xian Mei the immune eventually put down the hulking, disfigured Wayne, and continue to the ferry terminal. A group of prisoners who escaped their transport are found at the terminal and after they threaten Xian Mei for weapons, money, and supplies, they are killed as Xian Mei becomes enraged with Fury, an effect of being the Kuru virus being exposed to the mutagens from the tunnels. With the prisoners dead and their captive, Marvin, rescued, they board the ferry and cross the bay to the city.
Docking in Henderson, they find it overrun with the dead. After clearing the harbor, they reside in a shop and make plans to evacuate to the Old Town Cinema. Xian Mei leads the way and clears the streets and the theater itself to allow her group to safely reach the theater. In the journey to the theater, Harlow is lost though the group meets Jacqueline Phantom, the theater owner who was rescued from the zombies in the cinema. In return, Jacqueline allows the survivors to stay at the cinema and she gives them food. She explains what happened in the city and how the military started shooting civilians. Despite tensions between the immune and the non-immune, Hardy remains optimistic that the military at the Palanai Military Outpost will help them. Xian Mei heads out for the base to find it completely overrun, but is able to contact Frank Serpo in the telecommunications room. He informs Xian Mei that a rescue chopper is being sent to pick her up. Back at the theater, the survivors gather on the roof and await the helicopter. However, Serpo demands for the immune to board first and the survivors object. In an attempt to gain command, Hardy begins to climb the helicopter's ladder, only to be gunned down. The helicopter is shot down and the survivors are left to defend themselves as a zombie horde attacks. Xian Mei locates the ruins of the helicopter at the Fort of Henderson and the cellars of the fort are cleared, in which Serpo is located after he escaped the crash site. With Serpo secured, the survivors relocate to the secured fort. With rumors of a boat at the Docks District, Xian Mei sets for the docks, which is in the established quarantine zone. While at the docks, Xian Mei comes across an underground field laboratory and Harlow herself. She has gone seemingly insane, having been captured and experimented on with the mutagen. She declares that the infection must not spread beyond Palanai and the only way is to kill everyone, including the immune. Xian Mei tries to calm Harlow down, but she injects herself with the mutagen and attacks the hero. Xian Mei, in an attempt to defend herself, injects herself with the mutagen to gain strength in order to put down the crazed Harlow. She is successful and Harlow is killed. She also finds a boat, in which she brings to the fort and leaves Serpo, who followed Xian Mei at the docks, behind. The survivors board the boat and finally escape Palanai.
