Lieutenant Colonel (Korean Peoples Army)
Li-Na was born in North Korea, although the exact location within the country is never mentioned. When she was a young teenager, she was removed from her family and taken to an academy run by the Korean People's Army, where she was trained and moulded by senior members of Office 39 into becoming a sleeper agent to be deployed to the West.
In her mid 20's, using the alias of Mei, she was deployed away from North Korea and sent to Bangkok, Thailand in order to try and insert herself into the lives of members of influential Western governments.
By her mid thirties she had entered into a relationship with Robin Foster, a widowed diplomat who would later become the British Ambassador to Thailand. They were married for ten years, with Li-Na becoming the stepmother of his daughter, Chloe.
