  • Jaoming Family - the most powerful Triad family. Hsin Jaoming is the leader of the Triads. Seeing as Hsin's death is drawing near, his son Chan, Zhou Ming and Wu "Kenny" Lee are in a competition to replace him as the leader. After there is a suspected rat and Huang Lee finds evidence against Chan and Zhou, Huang kills them and leaves his uncle Wu Lee as the sole successor to Triad leadership. Members can be seen driving purple and red Comets around their turf.
