The Jaoming Family is one of the three triads family associated with the Algonquin Triads in the GTA IV Era rendition of Liberty City. During the events of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the Jaoming Family is 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 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. Later, Huang finds out that the FIB gave Wade Heston a fake file, Zhou and Chan were innocent, and the real rat was Kenny. In the Salt in the Wound mission, Wu, in an act of betrayal, says "You still want the sword old man?, Well, then take it". Wu stabs Hsin to take the leadership of the Triads in for himself and Huang kills him afterwards. Wade Heston, who accompanied Huang, had Hsin arrested as his fellow police officers raided the facility. Hsin told Huang that he was willing to make him his successor if he performed a test, similar to the deal he made with Wu Lee previously.



  • Chinese last names only consist of one character; therefore, "Jaoming" is not a real surname.
