As "The Legend of Korra" Book 2 prepares for its premiere September 13, one particular character that has been brought up is the illusive Lin Bei Fong, who is a fan favorite despite playing a smaller role in Book 1.

During a recent "Legend of Korra" art book signing and Q&A panel with Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino, a fan asked about Lin's presence in Book 2, and some were disappointed with the answer.
"Lin's Dad is just a mystery to me," teased Michael DiMartino regarding the identity of Lin's father and Toph's supposed lover. "We've got great stuff planned for Lin and her family. It's not right away, so don't be mad if it doesn't happen right away."
"Book 2, for the Lin fans...she's not very heavily featured in Book 2, BUT, very heavily featured in Book 3," continued Bryan Konietzko.
As fans may or may not know, Book 3 and 4 for "The Legend of Korra" have already been greenlit by Nickelodeon, and appears to be the final two Books of the Korra saga.
During a recent interview with Nerd Reactor, voice actress Janet Varney aka Korra confirmed that with the renewal into Book 3 and 4, Book 4 will indeed be the planned final season with a definitive ending.
"I kind of, in a selfish way, am glad that things get drawn out because I never want this to end," admitted Varney to the long wait for Book 2.
"These guys, they had a beginning, middle, and end, so after [Book 4], it will be gone."
Which begs the question, how will Lin Bei Fong be involved in the future, and will the identity of his father surprise fans?
"I want to say Sokka. I desperately want it to be Sokka. I was a hardcore Tokka shipper in the original series. I've mellowed out, but still support that ship," writes Avatar Spirit contributor Amagoi.
Other fan favorites for Lin's father include Sokka, and even Amon.
"Poor Lin, not only is she overshadowed by her mom's awesomeness, but by her father for simply getting with awesomeness."
