On February 13th, Team Year Six, Cheshire brought Lian to Red Arrow and told him about one last lead on the original Roy Harper. On February 28th, 23:14 Beijing Time (BT), Lian was brought along by Cheshire and Red Arrow to Tibet in search of the original Roy Harper. She got her parents surrounded by armed monks when she squealed in pleasure at the violence around her. On May 28th, 02:34 EDT, Nguyen picked up Lian from Paula Crock. The budding family eventually settled down Star City but it was short lived. Jade Nguyen ran out on them, telling herself they were better off without her. Artemis Crock and Brucely moved in to help raise her niece. Once Lian learned to talk, she started to call Artemis "Auntie Mouse", due to both a mispronunciation of "Artemis" and knowing her mother's pet name for her.

On September 29th, after 10:00 CDT, Will Harper and Lian arrived at the Allen home in Central City for a play date hosted by Iris West-Allen for the children of Justice League members. All the children loved it when John Smith made them a small tornado to play with. On October 12th, 19:49 PDT, she had ice cream at the kitchen table while Artemis Crock registered Violet for high school. She was had no clue Jade was watching her from outside.

On November 22nd, 13:01 PST, she sang a song with her grandmother before Thanksgiving dinner commenced. Lian claimed she helped her aunt set the table but did not take to being called "baby girl" and stated she was not a baby. Dr. Jace accidentally revealed Tigress was back in action and Paula stormed off. Even Lian noticed it became awkward. On December 7th, after 19:49 PST, Lian was scared by a thunderstorm. Tara Markov comforted her and put her back to bed. On February 14th, 18:03 PST, Team Year Nine, Violet Harper babysat Lian at the Hub in the Premiere Building in Hollywood. She loved her Wonder Woman doll and enjoyed Beast Boy's transformations into various animal forms. Suddenly, Metron boomed into the room. He extended his tube over Lian, Harper, and Victor Stone. They were boomed to the Mobius Dimension. Lian thought it was funny Harper and Stone could only speak in pings and loved being able to fly around. Once Metron was done talking to his "grandchildren," he boomed them back to the Hub and a confused Beast Boy. Lian wanted to do it again. By the time they got back home, Lian was asleep.
On February 28th, 16:16 EST, Will Harper took Lian to a private party at Bibbo's Diner in Metropolis for the original Team members, their significant others, and children.

By then she was assigned the designation A-28. She was in a mood and refused to speak. Forager wished Violet Harper was present to help change her mood. Will Harper assured him he was her favorite larvae sitter. She later engaged in shenanigans with Amistad Ervin, the son of Raquel Ervin. They made the punch bowl overflow with copious amounts of potato salad. Lucas Carr asked Forager if he was watching them. Forager noted he saw them do an interesting science experiment about the displacement of liquid. On March 26th, 07:09 PDT, Lian was happy to see a "Man-in-the-Moon-Cake" but she knocked her orange juice off the table during breakfast, but Artemis Crock's reflexes kicked in and she caught it before it spilled. On April 17th, 07:08 PDT, Lian knocked over her juice again but Crock was so depressed over Conner Kent's death, she didn't even attempt to catch it.
On April 21st, 20:38 PDT, Lian interrupted the video call between her father and Tigress to show off her "mommy mask," a rendition of Cheshire's mask. She had no idea Cheshire was present and was about to come back home. Cheshire was horrified to see her daughter emulating her persona and ran off.

Nguyen-Harper was eager to say hello but Crock told her there was no hurry since they could not say "hi" back. Nguyen-Harper touched Queen's hand and revealed she just wanted to everyone to know they were not alone. She remembered whenever she was sick, her dad told her a story. She wondered if she should tell that kind of story, one where they know what the ending is, to him.
At 12:44 PST, she touched Dinah Lance's hair. Crock told her to it was time to go but she wanted to stay a bit longer so she knew she was not alone. She stated as long as they were family, she was never alone. On November 12, 09:05 PST, Will and Lian Nguyen-Harper were present in the hospital room when everyone regained consciousness.
