21/50 fictional female challenge

Yu Shu Lien is the part played by Michelle Yeoh in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. I love Michelle Yeoh in everything she does, but her character, with her impossible love, and her brave death as she adheres with honor to a code that dooms her in every way made me weep for a week after I saw this film the first time. 

The name "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" is a literal translation of the Chinese proverb "卧虎藏龙" which refers to the mysteries that lie below the surface of an otherwise normal-looking individual.
