Mistress of the Spear. The Mistress of the Spear was created by the Chinese creator Ren Pengnian (Black Peony, Flying Tiger, Fong Sai Yuk, Rural Swordsman, Sam-neung, Yi Zhimei) and appeared in four film serials from 1931 to 1949, beginning with Nu Biaoshi.

The Mistress of the Spear is a Nüxia/Wüxia. She is a martial artist with various supernatural abilities who is supremely skilled with “flying darts” and with her spear. She hires herself out as an escort for those in need and uses her job to wander around the Chinese countryside dispensing justice and fighting bandits and corrupt government officials. In her final appearance she fights three duels with Kwan Ah Hing.
