Li is Robin Saint Sinclair's manservant, or even butler, but perhaps he is something else altogether?
Li is a third generation American. His Chinese name is Li Yu, and Li is his family or surname. His American name is Wayne Li. He doesn't care to use it. His parents were second generation, and his family were first in American in 1849 during the Gold Rush. Li was raised in San Francisco's China Town. His parents are merchants there. He meet Robin Saint Sinclair in San Francisco before WWI, when he was just a teenager, and after WWI accepted an invitation to join Robin in New York.
Being a third generation American Li is taller than recent immigrants at 5' 11". He knows Robin is sensitive about his height so Li doesn't often stand next to Robin for long, but also he often plays the part of obsequious and inscrutable servant because it allows him to be invisible to the 'white ghosts'.
Li is a bit of a mystery at this point.
Li's avatar is Hollywood Silent Movie Star Sessue Hayakawa, a man considered so threatening because of his animal sexuality that he was pretty much drummed out of Hollywood. No Asian man has been a sex symbol in Hollywood since.
