Mei-Lin Fei is originally from rural China. She came to America at a young age along with most of her family. She clawed her way out of the dredges of forced labor and into the Octagons. Once a member she quickly moved up the ranks until she became one of its most important members.
She runs their only territory not inside Little Asia, the Li-Ran Shipyards, which see hundreds of crates of cargo a day. Through this booming port of entry the Octagons smuggle tons of cheap weapons every year.
