Lee:She's not my GF! We're just... friends.
Biffy:Argh! Are you really one of those people who can't admit that they like someone?!

—Biffy and Lee (From The Camdidate)

This article features the relationship between Lee Ping and Tina Kwee.


Tina and Lee had always had a generally positive relationship as they were good friends since they met and picked their friendship up after the Prank. Tina was eager to find out how exactly Lee pulled it, but once she herself got deeper into the whole conspiracy she had become an active member of Lee's gang, helping him to find information about Coral Grove, explore the tunnels and other related mysteries. Lee appreciated the help Tina offered, as it also gave him a chance to spend more time with her: sometimes he was even willing to put his investigations aside and go out with Tina.
