Biography for Lin Beifong
Lin Beifong

Affiliation: Republic City
Voiced by: Mindy Sterling

Backstory: Raised by a forceful, sarcastic, and powerful mother, it's only natural that Lin became a leader in Republic City as the Chief of the Metalbending Police. Lin Beifong doesn't take garbage from anyone, and she has always maintained an iron hand when dolling out justice to any criminals or rebellious teenagers that have put her city in peril. Lin has worked hard to uphold her mother's legacy as a force to be reckoned with, and she doesn't appreciate chaos of any kind. Needless to say, her first meeting with Korra is NOT a happy reunion of transcending friendships. This is revealed not to be a transgression on the part of Korra, but rather, a past failed relationship with Tenzin. Since the burning of the Pro-Bending Arena, Lin resigned as Chief and is looking to battle against Amon, outside the law. Teaming up with Korra and her friends, Lin devoted herself to sabotaging Amon's efforts to seize the city. Willing to sacrifice herself in order to save Tenzin and his family, Lin's bending was taken in her quest to maintain a moral high ground. Lin's strength and character were greatly influential to the eventual fall of the Equalist revolution. And as retribution and just reward, Avatar Korra returned her Earthbending to her after the struggle was won.

Powers: Earthbending, Metalbending, Tremor-vision (Amon removed her bending, but fortunately Avatar Korra was able to restore it)

Personality: Strong and stubborn, Lin Beifong has little tolerance towards those who break the law. She doesn't stand on formalities nor is she impressed by them. She takes her job as Chief very seriously and will not let anyone interfere.
