Yun Mei. Yun Mei was created by the Chinese creator Wen Yimin and appeared in the film serial Hong Xia (1929).

Yun Mei is a Nüxia/Wüxia. Yun Mei, a beautiful young Chinese peasant, is terrified when a bandit army destroys her village, kills her grandmother, and kidnaps her. The chief of the bandits intends to use Yun as a sex slave, but before she is raped she is rescued by White Monkey, a mysterious Daoist hermit. Monkey takes Yun to his cave headquarters in the sacred Emei mountain and teaches her various martial skills as well as magical powers, including teleporting in a puff of smoke. She uses her abilities to avenge her grandmother’s death and rescue other women threatened with rape.
