Wan Li (better known as Short Round or Shorty) is a young street urchin whose family was killed in a Japanese bombing raid. Indiana Jones recruited him as a personal assistant, and Short Round accompanied his new friend on the quest to find the Sankara Stones.
Like Indiana Jones and Willie Scott, Shorty is named after a pet dog: Short Round was the dog of film writers, Gloria Katz and Willard Huyck.
