These three Tian pirate lords make up the current Wise Council of Three of Shenchu Bay, a usually functional form of government that has proven tumultuous with this combination of councilors. The warm wisdom of elderly Jieh Hui often finds itself at odds with the cold cunning of raven-haired Lo Shei Wen during debates. Chan Ai-Huao has proven to be the only real voice for the laity of the island, but her support has dwindled in recent years, thanks in no small part to Shei Wen’s public beratings of Ai-Huao as a “half-blooded mongrel.”
