    Default Who is the most high-profile character who NEVER showed up?

    Who in Jin Yong universe was given a high reputation, either through the narrator or through other characters, but ultimately never EXPLICITLY showed up in the novel?

    (Characters from the past who are known to be dead, do not count.)

    Is there such a character?

    Here are some candidates. Although I don't think any of them are really that high-profile, they are the ones I can think of now.

    -OTG: Abbot Miaodi; was mentioned several times, held in high regards. NOTE: he might have been present in Gallant Island at the end, but it was never explicitly stated (I think?)

    -DGSD: Murong Fu's mother; was mentioned by Wang Yuyan and Madam Wang and Ah Zhu and others; seemed to be a righteous person.

    -Liancheng Jue (ADS): The Four Freaks of the North; were mentioned to be among the most powerful fighters in Mainland China.

    Here is another extremely magnificent character who was alive, who was mentioned several times in the novel, but whose magnificence failed to showed up in the novel!

    Bao Butong's daughter Bao Bujing!

    Unlike Xie Xun's deceased son Xie Wuji, Bao Bujing was still alive, and well. It's too bad that she lost her father at such a young age. One can't help but wonder what life was like before, and after, the death was her father. But we'll never know--we can only exercise our imagination--because Jin Yong never told us!
