Xian was born in China in 1982, on the first day of the year of the dog. Her mother died in childbirth, and her father, a Triad underboss at the time, largely ignored her. She trained extensively in martial arts as a child, and would later save her father's life from an assassin. At the age of 18 she began working for her father doing minor jobs, and over the years worked her way up to become one of his most trusted underlings. During an assassination of a rival she was infected by a pair of werewolf body guards. She's been a werewolf for 7 years now, and has relocated to Chicago with the intent of establishing a major Triad presence in the city.
