Character history

San Fierro

Wu Zi Mu, at an unknown time, joined the Triads and became the leader of the Mountain Cloud Boys, a sub-group that sometime prior to 1992 established itself in Chinatown. There he bought an apartment and opened a betting shop, while also preparing to open The Four Dragons Casino on The Strip in Las Venturas. Wu Zi Mu also began to race on the illegal street race circuit and proved to be a good driver, despite losing to Carl Johnson on their first meeting. He quickly left the scene, shortly before the police arrive, telling Carl to contact him if he ever goes to San Fierro.

Carl, remembering Wu Zi Mu, contacts him shortly after getting the deed to a garage in Doherty, San Fierro during another street race. Carl and his sister's boyfriend, having heard of drug shipments back to their hometown, spy on a meeting at a fast-food restaurant in Angel Pine, taking photographs of those involved. The two then meet Wu Zi and his assistant Guppy in their garage, where they learn about the Loco Syndicate, club owner Jizzy B. and San Fierro Rifa leader T-Bone Mendez, although no-one knows the identity of the 'boss'. Carl quickly leaves to meet Jizzy, viewing him as the easiest way into the Loco Syndicate, with Wu Zi telling him not to 'be a stranger'.

Carl later meets Wu Zi at his betting shop, where he is told of Wu Zi's 'curse' (blindness). Wu Zi re-introduces himself, telling Carl that he is the leader of the Mountain Cloud Boys and asks Carl to accompany him to a meeting with a fellow Triad, who failed to attend their last meeting, wanting to talk about the threat of the newly arrived Da Nang Boys. The two drive around the block and walk down an alleyway, with Wu Zi running into the wall at the end of the alleyway. The two discover the corpses of the Blood Feather Triad sub-sect and are told by the last remaining Triad, who had hidden in a garage, that the Da Nang Boys had surprised and killed them. A number of Da Nang Boys then attack the alley, with Carl killing the attackers and driving back to Wu Zi's betting shop, while Wu Zi shoots at the pursuing Da Nang Boys.

Carl returns to Wu Zi's betting shop and meets the Shuk Foo Ran Fa Li, the leader of the Red Gecko Tong on the west coast, who wants a package retrieved from the airport. Carl requests the job and Wu Zi wisely states that he is less likely to draw the attention of the Da Nang Boys, although upon retrieving the package he is attacked, managaing to escape with the package. Carl returns to Wu Zi's betting shop once again and is asked to provide a decoy to lure the Da Nang Boys away from the shop. Carl then drives to Angel Pine and then around Whetstone, with the Da Nang Boys falling for the bait and Ran Fa Li escaping.

Wu Zi then decides to step up the attack on the Da Nang Boys, asking Carl to plant a bug on freighter in the harbor after swimming undetected and later to attack a ship being used by the Da Nang Boys to smuggle Vietnamese immigrants into the country. Wu Zi says that if all goes well, he would call a week later about from his new place. Carl accompanies Little Lion and attacks the ship using a minigun placement in a helicopter, which is shot down, killing Little Lion. Carl, however, sneaks on board and makes his way to the ship's hull, freeing the people being held in a container, and later making his way to the control room and killing the Da Nang Boys leader The Snakehead.

Wu Zi later phones Carl to tell him that one of his men has discovered that Mike Toreno, the boss of the Loco Syndicate, is about to leave by helicopter from a helipad in Downtown. Carl then goes to the location and follows the helicopter after it takes off, destroying the helicopter and killing those on board. Wu Zi later suggests that Carl destroy the Syndicate's factory and provides a car rigged with explosives, which Carl uses to blow up the factory.

Wu Zi then moves to Las Venturas to continue the preparations for the opening of The Four Dragons Casino and meets Carl there, telling him of his problems opening the casino in a mob run town and his problems with smashed up slot machines and workers who have been scared off. Wu Zi offers Carl a share in the casino if he is prepared to help in the casinos opening. Guppy then interupts the two and says that some thugs were seen attacking one of their deliveries but that they had caught one of them. Wu Zi tells Guppy to 'get rid of him' but Carl tells him to have the man tied to the front of a car. Carl then drives the car recklessly around Las Venturas with the man saying that the Sindacco Family will make him pay.

Carl and Wu Zi, believing that all three mafia families are attacking the casino, decide to pull of a heist at their casino and Carl heads to Hunter Quarry and steals some dynamite, believing it a necessity to pull off a heist. Carl and Wu Zi continue to meet at the casino and in one meeting are interupted by Guppy who presents two casino chips, one of which is a fake made by the Sindacco Family. Wu Zi is infuriated by the design of the chip, with the casinos dragon wearing sunglasses and holding a white walking stick, an obvious reference to Wu Zi's blindness and threatens to the blow the factory up, although Carl tells him to calm down before heading off to the factory, destroying all of the machines inside the plastics factory.

Carl and Wu Zi's plans to pull a heist at the mob run casino continue to gather pace as Carl is introduced to Ken Rosenberg, the man running the casino, by Kent Paul and Maccer who he rescued for his friend The Truth. Carl and Wu Zi begin to plan the heist, with Wu Zi telling Carl to steal the plans for the casino from the Las Venturas City Planning Department. Carl, after looking at the plans, tells Wu Zi of the casinos vast protection schemes, including CCTV cameras and a swipe card system. Guppy interupts to give Carl a package and, after seeing their plans, becomes the first recruit to help them in the heist. The package is a security card reader from electronics expert Zero. Carl then leaves and begins to follow a female employee of the casino around the city and back to her house. Realising that she is also a prostitute, he kills the man who she was about to meet and takes his place, becoming her boyfriend. Carl continues to date her and obtains her security card.

Carl later returns to the back room where he and Wu Zi are planning the heist but can not believe the number of people who now know of their plans, telling some to 'fuck off'. Carl, annoyed at the lack of privacy the room affords, leaves and tells Wu Zi to continue the meeting. Carl then heads to the Sherman Dam and plants bugs on the four hydro-electric turbines and escapes, despite being trapped by the dams security. Carl, Wu Zi and Guppy meet again, being joined by Zero who asks how the money is moved to and from the casino. Carl and Guppy leave, with Carl stealing four police motorocycles and drives them on to a vehicle transporter driven by Guppy.

The conspirators meet again in the back room, this time discussing their need for an armored van to move the money. Wu Zi suggests stealing one on its rounds, that way making more money, but Carl says that would only attract attention and end badly. Zero suggests stealing a 'sky crane' and Carl, a qualified pilot, is left to steal one from the K.A.C.C. Military Aviation Fuel Depot. Carl manages to steal the 'sky crane' from the military site and flies away, using the helicopters magnetic winch to lift an armored van, flying to his abandoned air strip. There Carl asks Guppy where Wu Zi is but is told he insisted on driving himself, meaning he could be anywhere. The helicopter is then sprayed by the Triads to look like one of the armored vans. Wu Zi, satisfied with Carl's work in helping establish the casino and his work for the planned casino heist, schedules a meeting where the two, joined by Ran Fa Li, sign a contract giving them each a share of the casino.

Carl, Wu Zi, Guppy and Zero, confident with that their plans will work, decide to pull off the heist. Carl enters the casino and accesses the employees only part of the casino. He immediately goes to the generator room, throwing a tear gas grenade down an air vent, which lands in the room holding the casinos vault, rendering the guards unconscious. Zero then activates the charges at the dam, knocking out the citys power supply, allowing Carl to open the garage door from inside the service bay. Wu Zi, Gupy and the rest of the team enter the casino and head to the safe, with Carl briefly having to return to the upper levels to stop the emergency power from being switched on. The Triads then use explosives to blow the safe door off, alerting the various mobsters in the building who attack the room but are killed. The gang collects the money in the safe and navigate their way back to the service bay, where everyone except Carl enters the van or hops on to the police bikes and drives away. Carl also escapes, drawing attention by getting on to the roof and parachuting to the roof of The Clown's Pocket hotel before using a police helicopter to fly to his air strip, where he meets Wu Zi and his fellow conspirators, punching Zero who had made the heist harder by telling his arch rival Berkley of their plans.

Wu Zi, satisfied that the mafia will no longer attack their casino, continues in the day-to-day running of the casino. He, Carl and Carl's sister Kendl later begin to judge people auditioning to join the casinos entertainment staff. Madd Dogg, a rapper who was saved by Carl, enters the room and announces that he wants his mansion in Los Santos back, explaining that he traded it for drugs with Los Santos Vagos drug dealer Big Poppa. Carl agrees to help and is assisted by Guppy and a number of Wu Zi's men, parachuting on to the mansions roof and working their way through the mansion, killing the various Los Santos Vagos gangsters inside before Carl chases and kills Big Poppa.

Carl returns to Las Venturas but continues to make contact with Wu Zi in regards to the running of the casino. Kendl, after the deaths of Big Smoke and Frank Tenpenny, and the destruction of Smoke's drugs manufacturing factory, suggests that they go to The Four Dragons Casino to 'roll some dice with Woozie'. Wu Zi continues to run the casino, which by 1998 has become renowned around the country, hosting many entertainment and important events.

Personality

Wu Zi Mu is a calm natured man who prefers to settle his business without resorting to unnecessary violence, although when angered he becomes as foul-mouthed and violent as any street gangster. He is an honorable man who remains loyal to Carl Johnson throughout the storyline of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, acting as his boss, business partner, accomplice and informant.

Trivia

  • Wu Zi Mu owns a pink Fortune, as seen during the mission Wu Zi Mu.
  • His favourite radio station is Master Sounds 98.3.
  • Wu Zi Mu can briefly be seen during the mission Farewell, My Love... inside the pink Elegy and can be seen sitting next to Catalina. Wu Zi, during the cutscene, is taking the place of Catalina's new boyfriend Claude.
  • Wu Zi Mu, despite being blind, proves to be an experienced driver (as seen during Wu Zi Mu) and experienced with guns (as seen during Mountain Cloud Boys).
  • He is scared of swimming in deep water, eels, seaweed and squids, as revealed in the mission Amphibious Assault. Wu Zi explains that his fear of swimming in deep water is due to not being able to rely on his other senses.
  • Wu Zi Mu is known amongst the Triads as the "Lucky Mole" due to his incredible luck, such as when racing cars despite his blindness. Guppy and the other Triads often allow Wu Zi to win. An example is when Wu Zi and Carl are playing miniature golf, with Guppy moving the cup acting as the hole so Wu Zi's shot was successful but then moving it again so that Carl misses his shot.
  • Wu Zi Mu calls Carl Johnson 'bad luck' as he never wins when playing cards against him, despite always winning against his Triad friends, who allow Wu Zi to win.
  • Triads in GTA IV can be heard to say "My cousin owns a casino in Las Venturas; maybe we should go sometime", which is a likely reference to Wu Zi Mu and his casino.
