Pai Mei

Pai Mei (translated to White Eyebrows) is said to have been one of the legendary Five Elders — survivors of the destruction of the Shaolin Temple by the Qing Dynasty imperial regime (1644–1912) — who, according to some accounts, betrayed Shaolin to the imperial government.

Pak Mei has been fictionalized in Hong Kong films such as Executioners from Shaolin (1977), Abbot of Shaolin (1979), and Clan of the White Lotus (1980). In these movies, Pak Mei was played by Lo Lieh, in 2004 Gordon Liu played Pak Mei in the film Kill Bill: Volume 2.
