Summary for GMs

- Legendary Rep: Wuxing
- Rank (3): Wuxing
- Shen Ming holds credentials in Wuxing as a Senior Security Specialist (Grade 3) (Matrix), seconded to Mei Chaofeng's personal security detail. These details are not available to casual search - a special reference code and password are required, but if provided (and Smogg knows these details), they unlock his personnel dossier to show he is a loyal son of the company and in favor with those high up the food chain. If Smogg loses his connection to Mei Chaofeng, this quality goes away
- Erased: The Shen Ming SIN is actively purged for any Shadowrunner trails.
- All traces of illegal activity connected to Shen Ming's Wuxing SIN are erased by a Wuxing matrix ops team, escalating to minor physical actions if necessary, by order of Executive Chaofeng. If (somehow) Smogg loses his connection to Mei Chaofeng, this quality also goes away.

Shen Ming was born in Hong Kong. His family has served Wuxing for generations and is well respected. Shen Ming was taught business skills, but it soon became clear that he had a talent for the Matrix, and he took a track towards Matrix Security. Fully trained he transferred to Seattle of the position as Security Spider. He had a promising life and fell in love with Lìxúe. During his professional life, he prevented a group of hackers on a Wuxing Host from sinking a Wuxing Mega Cargo Carrier. However not without getting bricked and he spend several months in hospital with severe trauma, and the migranes would not seem to fade Slowly he came to realize that his condition was caused by his mind opening to the resonance, and when he finally began to embrace it, the pain disappeared. Unfortunately Technomancy within a Megacorporation is problematic and he soon realized that without a license and the blessing of Wuxing, his days as a brilliant and well paid corp spider were numbered.
Mei Chaofeng, a resourceful executive in the Seattle branch would not let an opportunity slip by easily. She has promised Shen Ming to set him up with a proper license and to let him return to his position. However, first she would need some important work done. Specifically she needs financial data on all rival Megacorporations in relation to the Megacorp Audit. Mei has set up Shen with records of memory loss and a "recovery" arrangement. She further put him in contact with Xiao, a solid fixer. His biggest regret is leaving Lìxúe when he turned to shadowrunning. With a proper runner team and training he will under his new handle "Smogg" eventually penetrate target corporations and retrieve essential data. With his dream link, he is trying to get a better understanding of his own mind and the Resonance.
Turn of Events: Over time and climaxing with the events surrounding Spacewar Coriolis Lunar Archology, Smoggs services to Mei Chaofeng resulted in her offering Smogg a chief spider position within Wuxing as her right hand or to continue as her agent in the shadows (with some SIN upgrades). This was a major choice for Smogg, wanting nothing more than to return to the luxery life put right there in front of him. However with enemies like Adam Bell still on the loose, and events surrounding the spacewar plot unresolved, he decided to support Chaofeng from the shadows a while longer. Knowing the option of returning to corporate life is now within reach, Smoggs thought begin to drift in the prospect of winning back Lìxúe. Should her reach out to her, now where a future is possible? What about Song Lee his childhood friend, they would drift apart if Smogg left the shadows. It was eight in the evening. Smogg called up his friend Song Lee: "Hey Song Lee!! Good to be back in Seattle. You know what? I need a drink, The usual place? See you in 15!"
