Li Ying was the master of the Li Family Village near Dulong Ridge. His appearance was quite unique as he had eyes like those of a hawk and a head like a tiger's, arms like an ape's and a waist like that of a wolf's. He was friendly and willing to help those in need. He wore a red-coloured robe, loved riding his white horse and was excellent in using his flying daggers and bronze spear in combat. He was nicknamed the 'Striking Hawk' (扑天雕) due to his excellent martial skills.
