Seeing those young crooks really gives me hope for the future.
~ Shady Shin.
Shady Shin is a minor villain in the animated series, The Legend of Korra, and a recruiter based in Republic City, affiliated with the Triple Threat Triad. Lately, he has been recruiting members for Lightning Bolt Zolt, the triad's leader.
Shady Shin approached Bolin, who was attempting to earn money for pro-bending fees by having Pabu perform tricks at Central City Station. He convinced Bolin to be "security" for an unknown event. However, he and Bolin were captured by the Equalists at the Triple Threat Triad headquarters. The two of them were taken to an Equalist rally where Shady Shin was given a chance to protect his bending, but he was ultimately defeated by Amon and his bending was taken away.
