Leader of Zaofu

Suyin Beifong is the current leader of Zaofu and Lin Beifong's younger half-sister. Although once in rough tiffs before, Lin and Suyin now get along rather fairly with each other.

Book Five: Memory

After the events with Kuvira, Suyin stayed around in order to help expand Republic City, as per request of Raiko himself. While she was helping finish off another building alongside the rest of her family, Suyin found the pregnant Zhu Li and Wu coming over to them. While talking, Suyin assured Zhu Li that, despite the troubles, it was just a part of the pregnancy, knowing very well through her own experiences. When she was told about Korra's departure, Suyin went to say goodbye to Opal before she went off.

During the time they were gone, Suyin went back to Zaofu.

Book Six: Shadow

While the group was off fighting more of the Voronon, Suyin managed to hear about the events happening at Kuvira's prison cell and went right to Republic City to see what she could do. While talking to Lin about the issue, she suggested to go to the Foggy Swamp and have their mother watch over Kuvira while a new prison cell was being built. When they arrived at the swamp, they were confronted by Whoii, whom they tried to fight. Sadly, she became witness to her mother, Toph Beifong, being brutally murdered by Whoii's blast. After Whoii was defeated though and after seeing Lin brutally blame Kuvira for Toph dying, Suyin scolded Lin before going after Kuvira. Eventually she found Kuvira and revealed that she still cared deeply about her and was worried about her, despite her betrayal. She tried to comfort her and get her to come back. While she did succeed in comforting her, she wasn't able to bring her back. In fact, she allowed Kuvira to go, saying she had stayed with them for long enough and she was allowed to go and set things right.

Afterwards, she explained to Lin Beifong the issue and decided to head back to Zaofu.


Suyin Beifong is a calm woman who cares deeply for her family, willing to do whatever it takes to keep them safe from any harm. Her care isn't limited to the past, as she shows compassion towards Kuvira, despite her past betrayal.
