Chan Jaoming is a character in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.



Chan is mentioned in the LCPD information database in GTA IV. He is the 41-year-old son of Hsin Jaoming, leader of the Jaoming Family set of the Algonquin Triads. He is one of three possible contenders (the other two being Wu Lee and Zhou Ming) to inherit his father's position. He is believed to be the underboss of the Jaoming Family and has a group of men loyal to him. Chan has been arrested on three occasions: once in 1999 for possession of heroin, again in 2003 for extortion and 2005 for possession of stolen property.

GTA Chinatown Wars

Chan plays a major role in the events of the game's events. He is a playboy (he mentions having sex with twins and a transsexual prostitute), drug addict, and is comically idiotic - he seems to be constantly oblivious to Huang's mocking and sarcastic remarks.

Huang's investigation into the theft of Yu Jian and the murder of his father reveals two possible FIB informants who have been reporting on the Triads - incorrectly inferred to be Chan and Zhou. Chan is killed in Clear the Pier after being falsely accused of being the informant who was selling out the Triads.
