There are two ways we can do this, dragon! And you're only conscious in one of them!
- Neera, arresting a severely injured Lilac


Lady Neera Li is the Royal Magister's advisor, the chief of the STPD and a playable character in Freedom Planet 2.

Appearance

Neera is a Panda with black hair and dark pink eyes.

In Freedom Planet, her fur is a peach tone she wears purple and black robes with a white godet, purple fingerless gloves and black knee high boots.

In Freedom Planet 2, her fur is no longer a peach tone and has now been altered to a natural white. Her purple robes now have black and white straps, and she also wears a black Obi sash with a brocade knot in the shape of a six-sided flower tied around it. She also wears purple and white cuffs and a black skirt underneath her robe. Her boots now have small purple accents above the knee and at the toe. In both games, she also wears silver shoulder pads, with purple accents being incorporated on her second design.

Personality

Neera is a strict law enforcer who enforces the Magister's will throughout Shang Tu, accompanying General Gong a majority of the time. She is very proactive in her work, growing skeptical when Lilac & Carol knew more about the theft plot on the Kingdom Stone, and going as far as doing a background check on them. However, she is not a machine obsessed with duty; as she recognizes Milla as a child who was only guilty for being a criminal accomplice. Neera also has a sense of honor, declaring it dishonorable to harm (or even kill) a child.

Relationships

Royal Magister

Neera is the Magister's trusted advisor. She inforces his will throughout Avalice, and always advises him whenever she can. It is also likely that it was the Magister who appointed Neera to be the chief of the STPD.

General Gong

Neera often works alongside the General with certain tasks, such as protecting the ancient temple and the Kingdom Stone within. When she stated that something doesn't smell right, Gong thinks she's referring to his body odor, making her answer that he never smells right.

Team Lilac

At first, Neera was very distrusting of Lilac and her friends, due to their criminal past and affiliations with the Red Scarves. After the suspicions were cleared up, she became less doubtful of them and aids them in the fight against Lord Brevon, even treating their injuries before and after the Final Battle. In the 3 years after, Neera joins Team Lilac, oversees their training and guides them on the Magister's missions, making sure they stay out of trouble. She also reminds them to follow the laws of Shang Tu, stating that their good deeds to Shang Tu and their services to the Magister will not erase any of their past misconducts.

Powers and Abilities

Neera is a very powerful martial artist with good skills weapon and energy manipulation. While being slower than the other members of Team Lilac, she certainly is athletic and durable, even being a nearly unstoppable force in combat.

Neera has a variety of Elemental Weapons to use, but her Weapon of Choice is a Cryo Staff, which she uses to utilize her Frost Arts by manipulating the crystal energy stored in (or charged into) the Staff to create ice. Neera's fighting style when fighting with the Cryo Staff resembles Naginatajutsu. She is also capable of summoning an Elemental Shield for extra protection.

Frost Arts

With her Frost Arts, Neera can fight and capture her opponents easily and non-lethally with ice, even though ice has the potential to be deadly. She can also use Frost Arts as a means of transportation by creating a floor of ice for her to skate on.

Neera's known Frost Arts are listed as the following:

  • Neera's Energy Meter has the slowest recharge rate compared to the other Playable Characters in Freedom Planet 2.
