"No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can't choose what stays and what fades away

Plot Hooks

You scour these Chinatowns of the mind, translating them like sutras Xuan Zhang fetched from India, testing ways return might be possible against these homesick inventions, trace the traveler's alien steps across borders, and in between discover how transit has a way of lasting, the way these Chinatowns grew out of not knowing whether to return or to stay, and then became home.

The Wing Kong Exchange is one of, if not THE, oldest of businesses in Chinatown. Rumors persist that the owner has ties that can be traced back all the way to the founding of Imperial China.

Mao Shan Sorcery is intended to be practiced to benefit the public but there will always be some bad eggs that abuse their knowledge by casting spells and commanding ghosts/spirits/demons to harm people. Keeping ghosts/spirits is what Taoist Masters are taught and can do. Ghosts Keeping is a way to seek them as spiritual servants to help out during Taoist Sorcery. Whether Mao Shan sorcery is considered White Magic or Black Magic will depend on the intentions of the Mao Shan master.

A good act does not wash out the bad, nor a bad act the good. Each should have its own reward.

The Wing Kong triad is one of, if not THE, most powerful triad organizations in Chinatown, with their fingers in many pies. Rumors persist that the dragon master has ties that can be traced back all the way to the founding of Imperial China.

The Middle Kingdom

Demon "Never trust a Yama King. He has a hundred motives for anything he does ... Ninety-nine of them, at least, are malevolent."
Hsien "Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit."
Kuei-Jin "There are 12,800 hells located under the earth – eight dark hells, eight cold hells and 84,000 miscellaneous hells located at the edge of the universe. The Kuei-Jin bring a piece of each hell back to the Middle Kingdom with them."
Beast Courts "Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit."
Chi'n Ta "They have no gods. They work magic, and think they are gods themselves. But they are not. And when they die, they become dust and bone, and their ghosts whine on the wind a little while till the wind blows them away. They do not have immortal souls."
The Yellow Springs "The souls of the deceased endure after death and must be kept happy by offerings and honor. If a spirit is not kept happy, perhaps because it had a bad death, an improper burial or has no descendants to perform the proper rituals, it becomes a hungry ghost."

He handles - well, whatever he wants to handle for the Wing Kong. He IS a dragon, after all. But surely he's just an urban legend, right? It is said that he is the avatar of the triad's Yin cult, and that he consumes the souls of the cult's unworthy and defeated.
The Wing Kong (NETERU)
The Wing Kong Triad is more than just a legitimate business front and a criminal enterprise - they have grown to become one of the largest and most powerful Yin cults in Chinatown, with hundreds or perhaps even thousands of devoted worshippers, various holdings of land throughout Chinatown, along with money, influence and a full-time clergy, led by Cassie Wing, in the service of the Immortal Ebon Dragon.
