Huang Lee is the protagonist and playable character of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.

Background

A spoiled rich kid from Hong Kong, Huang owes his status as a Triad member to his father, a Triad boss from Kowloon. After the murder of his father, his uncle, Wu Lee to deliver a family ‘heirloom', the Yu Jian Sword, to secure his family’s claim to the leadership of the Triad gangs, calls Huang to Liberty City. However, what was supposed to be a weekend of table service and strippers turns into a dangerous adventure after arriving at Francis International Airport only to be hijacked, robbed of his sword, and left for dead. Huang will have to dig deep into the rotten core of Liberty City - and deep within himself -- to avenge his father's murder and reclaim his family's honor.

Personality

Throughout the course of the game, Huang is been shown to be very cocky and quick-witted. He appears to much more intelligent then other characters in the game. For example, Chan Jaoming is oblivious to Huang's constant mocking and sarcastic remarks.

Huang does not value honor and tradition in the same vein as his Uncle, claiming that "this is 2009 not 1403." However, he is very loyal to his family and his gang, following their orders with little hesitation, even to the point he'd murder other Triads. Huang acknowledges the fact that he is a "pampered little snot" in the opening cutscene, and he reveals that he has visited Liberty City before where he "caught crabs from a Swiss tourist."

He seems to dislike the characters he gets missions from but he does show the occasional respect for his Uncle Wu Lee.

Appearance in GTA IV

Huang has a record on the LCPD Database in Grand Theft Auto IV. It states that he is a 25 year-old Chinese native and known associate of Wu "Kenny" Lee's Liberty City Triad Gang. His record also states that he is been believed to be working freelance for other organizations in addition to his uncle's.

Name

The correct pronunciation for the name Huang is Hoo-ong. People mistakenly pronounce the name Hoo-ang, which is incorrect. Huang commonly translates to yellow (porn) but can be translated to anything that uses the same pronunciation.

Another area of confusion is the mixed use of Mandarin and Cantonese spellings in his name. Huang Lee hails from Hong Kong, where the Cantonese dialect is more commonly used, but "Huang" is written in a Romanized Mandarin spelling when "Wong" or "Wang" should be used; "Lee" is correctly Cantonese, while the Mandarin equivalent is "Li". This means Huang Lee's name may also been purely referred to as "Wong Lee" or "Wang Lee" in Cantonese and "Huang Li" in Mandarin. His early background in Hong Kong remains largely unexplained.

  • Zhou Ming - Killed as a suspect of being the rat.
  • Chan Jaoming - Killed as a suspect of being the rat.
  • Wu Lee - Killed for betraying the Triads and being the rat.

Trivia

  • In The Ballad of Gay Tony, two of Lee's safehouses are drop off points for Armando and Henrique's drug empire in the Drug Wars side mission.
  • Surprisingly, Huang does not show any remorse for killing Chan and Zhou after finding out that they weren't informants. He generally showed signs of resentment towards them both, presumably explaining his lack of concern over their deaths.
  • Huang Lee is only GTA protagonist who comes from Asia.
  • Huang seems not to mind killing other Triads in many missions.
  • As mentioned in Yu Jian mission, Huang has only been to Liberty City once before where he got Crabs off a swiss tourist, but how will the LCPD have his two records from a long range of time? The only possibility is that he's been there for a long time before the gameline.
