Faction Information

Summary

The Yellow Lotus is a Triad based in the Seattle sprawl in the UCAS and they are now Seattle's most powerful Triad. One of their main sources of revenue is the smuggling of illegal immigrants who are forced to work in factories and sweatshops in the Barrens which manufacture knock-offs or in the sex trade until they pay off their debt, and some are even sold to organleggers. The primary business of the Yellow Lotus is the smuggling and dealing of BTL chips from Hong Kong, they dominate the market in the sprawl. In downtown Vashon, the Yellow Lotus operates various entertainment centers where one can enjoy chips, joytoys, and drugs. It is one of the Triads providing the soldiers of Ft. Lewis with prostitutes.

Recently it has expanded to the Boston sprawl where it is battling the Black Orchid Triad. The Yellow Lotus also recently became a significant player in Thailand, moving drugs from the Golden Triangle to Bangkok and from there to the world. When the Triads recently lost their stranglehold on the Golden Triangle drug trade due to the rise of the Yakuza in Thailand, the Yellow Lotus were one of the syndicates negatively impacted and are attempting to force the Yakuza out of the drug trade. They also have a branch in the city of Beijing.
