    PURPOSE
    ==========
    
    I have written this FAQ to outline the fighter Li Mei. She is one of 
    my favourite characters in the entire series and is very powerful 
    when you know how to use her correctly. Li Mei had an interesting 
    look in MK:DA and a new direction in MK:D with the armour and all. 
    Once you start playing as her, you'll notice her quickness, her array 
    of special moves and especially her big, fat, juicy...COMBOS. This 
    gives every possible piece of information about Li Mei you could ever 
    want. Enjoy.

    If you want to get your hands on Li Mei's chest (pun intended) here 
    is what you have to do:

    -Play through the story until you get to Outworld for a second time
    -Go to the living forest and talk to Kano
    -He orders you to work in Li Mei's village where the palace is being  
     built

    BACKSTORY
    ============
    
    Status: Student
    Alignment: Good
    Weight: 120 lbs
    Height: 5'8
    Styles: Baji Quan and Lui He Ba Fa
    Weapon: Sais
    
    
    The Deadly Alliance commanded Kano and his troops to force a
    small population of people to construct a palace fortress. One
    of those enslaved was Li Mei, who rebelled against the invaders
    and attacked Kano himself. Recognizing the warrior spirit she
    possessed, the sorcerer Quan Chi offered to free her people if
    she could win the Deadly Alliance Tournament. If she did not
    win, however, she would be forced to serve the Alliance and her
    people would remain slaves forever. Li Mei had no choice but to
    accept the offer.
    
    Li Mei had been promised that her people would be freed from
    enslavement if she could win the tournament held by the Deadly
    Alliance. Now that she had emerged victorious, the true purpose
    behind the tournament was finally revealed to her. Her soul would
    be the last one Shang Tsung needed to completely revive the
    Dragon King's lost army. Her people would never be freed and Li
    Mei herself would remain trapped inside the mummified remains of
    a dead soldier... cursed to serve the Deadly Alliance... forever.

    STORY
    =========
    
    -------
    BIO
    -------
    
    Place of Origin: Outworld
    Alignment:       Good
    Allies:          Bo' Rai Cho
    Foes:            Shang Tsung, Quan Chi, Kano
    
    Emerging as the victor of Shang Tsung and Quan Chi's fake tournament, 
    Li Mei fell victim to their evil plans and her soul was transplanted 
    into the mummified remains of an ancient soldier. Although rescued 
    from this fate by master Bo' Rai Cho, Li Mei has been tainted by the 
    warrior corpse her soul temporarily inhabited.
    
    -------------------
    FIRST PERSON BIO
    -------------------
    
    I had entered the tournament held by the Deadly Alliance in hopes of 
    winning the freedom of my enslaved town -- I was a naive fool. Shang 
    Tsung and Quan Chi had no intention of rewarding a victor. Instead 
    they prepared to transplant my soul into the last remaining corpse of 
    Onaga's ancient army. Had it not been for the surprise intervention 
    of Master Bo' Rai Cho, I would have become a servant of evil.  
    Master Bo' Rai Cho brought me back to health, and for this I am 
    forever in his debt. The brief moment my soul occupied the warrior 
    corpse changed me in ways I may never fully understand. Master Bo' 
    Rai Cho has trained me well during the time I have spent with him, 
    and I feel a sense of duty to Outworld like never before. But I 
    cannot deny that I feel strangely drawn to a new power taking hold in 
    this realm...
    
    ---------
    ENDING
    ---------
    
    An alliance had been formed of warriors from vastly different 
    origins, but with a similar goal: to defeat Onaga. Li Mei marched 
    uneasily into battle against the Dragon King. The closer she got to 
    him, the more she came to understand which side was truly deserving 
    of victory. Li Mei turned on her former allies and gave her emperor 
    the time he needed to finish merging the Kamidogu. The Dragon King 
    was now all-powerful. He had the means to control the universe, to 
    make and unmake as he saw fit. Li Mei watched in delight as the Elder 
    Gods fled before his might. Onaga then transformed her into his 
    queen, to be forever at his side. He had given her power beyond 
    anything she had ever imagined. Together, they will rule the One 
    Realm and slay the last of the Elder Gods.
    
    ===============
    EARLY LI MEI
    =============== 
    
    Li Mei started out very different in earlier deception. At the E3 
    playable demo, she had her alternate costume as her primary and also 
    gave her the Melon as a weapon (which later became Havik's). One 
    thing which I'm very annoyed at is that the dropped her old Baji Quan 
    fighting style, which was awesome, and gave her the much less 
    desirable Mi Zong fighting style which used to be one of Bo' Rai 
    Cho's fighting styles from MK:DA. Also, for an unknown reason, she is 
    seen in an earlyish screenshot holding Kitana's steel fans.

    SPECIAL MOVES
    ----------------
    
    Nova Blast- D,B+1
    
    She stands back and lets out a flying ball of energy towards the 
    opponent. This is basically her sparkler move from MK:DA.
    
    Carnival Spin- F,D+3
    
    She spins on one leg in a circular motion, kicking the opponent with 
    the other. This is basically her klock kick move from MK:DA.
    
    Flying Furry- F,F+2
    
    She almost flies forward at the opponent, repeatedly punching the 
    opponent the face. This is basically her flying fists move from 
    MK:DA. 
    
    Flipping Heel Kick- D,B+4
    
    She flips forwards in a circular motion, bringing her feet over her 
    head and kicking the opponent and then landing on her feet. This is 
    basically her kartwheel move from MK:DA. 
    
    -------------------------
    FATALITIES & HARA-KIRI
    -------------------------
    
    Brutality- F,F,F,F,1 (sweep)
    
    Li Mei makes quick punches up and down the opponents
    body then walks away. The opponent begins to shake 
    violently and then explodes.
     
    At The Bat- U,B,F,F,4 (sweep)
    
    Li Mei uppercuts the opponents head off then takes 
    a few steps back. She then kicks the falling head 
    forwards into the opponents lifeless body and they 
    explode.
    
    Flying Sword - U,D,U,D,3
    
    She takes out her Kun Lun Dao and throws it into the
    air. She then pokes her head out and the falling 
    sword decapitates her. She falls to the ground in 
    a slouched position.
    
    --------------
    GET UP MOVE
    --------------
    
    Not so much a move but its cool anyway. If you are defeated in a 
    match Li Mei lifts her two legs up, forces herself up on one toe, and 
    rubs off some "dust" off of her.

    LI MEI IN KONQUEST
    =====================
    
    (Interesting side note: This is the only training in which Shujinko
                            trains somebody else)
    
    After entering the village once Kano arrests you, go to the glowing 
    green aura at location G-8 to find Li Mei. Talk to her and she will 
    explain to you that her village called Sun Do was the first village 
    to be enslaved by the Deadly Alliance, and the only way to free it
    is to enter a tournament they are holding and win. Shujinko tells her 
    that he is worried about her going alone, and offers to teach her 
    some fighting styles he has picked up over the years.  She accepts 
    your offer and this is what Li Mei must do to pass your training:
    
    Shujinko: "Li Mei, I will begin your training with Lui He Ba
               Fa high attacks, which I learned while training with  
               Master Bo'Rai Cho in Earthrealm."
