  • Zhu Li Moon is one of the supporting characters of The Legend of Korra, although in season 4 serving as a secondary antagonist. She is Varrick's assistant, helping him with any task he asks of her. A calm and serious woman, Zhu Li regularly deals with her boss' eccentric demands with stoic efficiency. Zhu Li shifted from antagonist to protagonist along with Varick when the two saw the extent that Varrick's research could be abused to kill people. Like Varrick Zhu Li was deeply impressed by the research but could not use the technological achievement justify the harm it would do. While attempting to get away from Kuvira and subvert her plans for the spirit-vine weapons Varrick, Zhu Li and Bolin are caught and brought before Kuvira to pay for their attempted subversion of her plans. Varrick assurs Kuvira that even he has limits and will never help her complete the weapon, however Zhu Li, having been pushed around once too often during the attempted escape renounces her service to Varrick and to Kuvira instead. Zhu Li claims her loyalty was misplaced and if given another chance she would continue Varrick's research for Kuvira. Kuvira spares Zhu Li's life and with no incentive to keeping Varrick around has him taken away to be "re-educated". Varick's machine begins suffering a variety of malfunctions which eventually provoke Kuvira's suspension and she searches Zhu Li to find she was the one sabotaging her own project. Once confronted Zhu Li admits she had feigned loyalty to Kuvira to keep Varrick's machines out of the wrong hands. Though Kuvira attempts to test the weapons out on Zhu Li instead she is saved by Bolin and reunited with Varrick. Varrick immediately forgives Zhu Li's false betrayal and is happy to welcome her back as his assistant, however Zhu Li insists if she is to get back to helping Varrick she refuses to be his gofer any longer. Varrick is confused at first to the notion of treating someone as an equal manages to make right with Zhu Li and brings her on, no longer as his assistant but his colleague. In the final episode of the series Varrick asks Zhu Li to be his wife once the fight with Kuvira is finished, Zhu Li gladly accepts his proposal.
  • She and Varrick were placed in Republic City's jailhouse when it was discovered that the latter had hired a waterbending gang to abduct President Raiko. However, when a merged Vaatu and Unalaq began attacking Republic City, the wall to their cell was obliterated by one of Vaatu's vines, which Zhu Li and Varrick used as an opportunity to escape. She then took refuge in Zaofu with Varrick in book 3. Three years later, she joins Kuvira's army with Varrick, and assists him with collecting and experimenting with spirit vines. After the energy from the vines destroys the machinery and almost blows her off the moving train, Varrick saves her, although only to have someone to clean up the resulting mess. After Bolin helped she and Varrick escape via mecha tanks, Zhu Li helped them fend off Baatar Jr. and two other soldiers, only to be captured and sentenced to a correctional facility. At this point, she turns on Varrick because of his lack of gratitude and openly pledges herself to Kuvira's cause. She is later appointed as Baatar Jr.'s assistant in construction a new superweapon after the spirit vine research is destroyed. When the testing for the new superweapon began, Kuvira intended to test it on an abandoned town, and Zhu Li began sabotaging the machinery without Kuvira's knowledge. However, as Baatar Jr. continually noticed that parts of the machine were either damaged or missing, Kuvira began suspecting Zhu Li. When she was discovered, she told the warlord that she regretted nothing, and that she was a monster. Kuvira ordered her guards to chain her in the abandoned town so she would be destroyed along with it. She was rescued when the Beifongs interfered, and after escaping, she informed them that Kuvira planned to attack Republic City in two weeks' time. Upon returning to Republic City, she warned the president about Kuvira's attack plan and reunited with Varrick. She apologized for what she said during her apparent betrayal and confessed possible romantic feelings for him, and Varrick forgave her, only to tell her to get to work on the assembly line, while remaining oblivious to her confession. This caused Zhu Li to grow angry and demand that she be treated as an equal instead of an assistant. Zhu Li assists Varrick in the battle against the Earth Empire in Republic City, helping him use an electromagnetic pulse to stall the giant mecha suit carrying the spirit energy cannon (though it ultimately fails). Varrick proposes to her before they depart for their final plan against Kuvira, which Zhu Li gleefully accepts. After Kuvira surrenders and the Earth Empire is dissolved, Varrick and Zhu Li are married on Air Temple Island.
