Name: Meili Zhang (Properly: 張美李 or zhāng měilǐ
Species: Approximately human
Personality: Meili, sometimes Mei or even May depending on her company, is an easy going person, calm and usually impossible to disturb under normal circumstances. She gets along with most people, and is usually eager to please with those who win her friendship, an easy task if one puts their mind to it. Even with her enemies she tends to be gentler than most, without much of a drive for extracting punitive punishment, and with her professional rivals even going out of her way to lend assistance in times of need. This all changes when she feels personally physically threatened, where she on occasion has been to known to lose her nerve with startling speed, and much of her resolve vanishes in service of avoiding whatever it is threatening to do her harm.
Brief Bio: The offspring of a highly placed member of the influential and potent Singapore Triads and one of his mistresses, Meili was brought into the world almost entirely artificially. Nurtured in a uterine replicator, she underwent extensive genetic therapy, skirting the boundery of legality under Sudham-Wolcott, and continuing into her childhood. She had equally extensive cyberisation, growing up thinking in stacks and queues as much as she did through neural nets, all under the careful eye of her father, turning her into a perfect agent of the Triad he served.
And so she was raised, although not to become a super soldier, but into something far more valuable. A talented mathematician, graphics designer, and economist, she was the driving creative force behind a resurgence in the counterfeiting, IP violation, economic manipulation, and cyber-espionage programmes the Triad undertook. Even during her 9 month incarceration for industrial espionage she continued to operate, sequestered in a de facto Triad controlled prison.
Her fortunes have shifted since an unfortunate turn saw her implicated in money laundering connected with a radical isolationist terror group. She was guilty of course, but was not fully aware of who she was connected to. Public outrage and intervention from interstellar groups put her out of reach—for the moment—of her allies within the Triads, and saw her convicted and shuttled off to a secure facility where it was hoped she would remain unable to worm her way out and back into the arms of her criminal family.
List of crimes committed: Numerous counts of fraud, including forgery, counterfeiting, and by electronic communication; industrial espionage; infringement of patent, copyright, and trademark; money laundering, including for the purposes of terrorism; and others.
Question 1: A prisoner approaches you asking for some smokes. You have some, but think this inmate is just a snitch. What do you do?
Cigarettes are valuable. Hell, I'm pretty sure I could start an actual economy going using them as a currency, given enough time. I read a paper on it years ago, and it didn't seem too hard, just hard to manage the monetary policy for. With that kind of market, why take the risk selling to someone unreliable? There are plenty more buyers that would be happy to take them. As far as I'm concerned, I don't have any right now.
Question 2: The cafeteria is overcrowded again. You see a seat open up, but it's with a group of Selarians. What do you do?
Ahh, racial gangs. Yes, let's avoid that. I'm sure there's someone who would be more than happy to let me share their lap while I eat.
Question 3: A guard tells you to get on your knees and give him a blowjob. You don't want to, but he's been known to beat prisoners. What do you do?
A blowjob lasts for a few minutes. A broken jaw can last for months. My choice is clear. And maybe I can get something out of it, besides.
