Su is with her family in the gallery of the courtroom watching Kuvira stand trial for her crimes against peace, wars of aggression, inhumane prison camps, invasion and wielding weapons of mass destruction. Kuvira pleads not guilty. Su confronts her after outside the courtroom as she is being led out by security.

We see a flashback where Kuviras parents give her up to Suyin Beifong. They can't handle Kuvira, expressing how they can’t get though to her and that she is just to difficult. They hope Su can knock some sense into her. Su is friendly and gentle, she offers her a safe home and, in a sense, becomes her adoptive mother.
Kuvira, now on the run from Gaun, is desperate and needs help. She calls out to Su for aid. Su is hesitant at first but decides to help.

She ops against her sons requests and does not to keep her restrained aboard, feeling Kuvira is not a flight risk.
