Little happens in this town that I do not know about. Of course, you must know the right question to ask, yes?

Lao Chou is the Chinese proprietor of the Flying Dragon 8, not sharing the xenophobia of his fellow Shi in 2241.


Jovial and knowledgeable, he sells equipment of the highest quality, as well as information. He is also extremely honorable, holding people up to their word and not giving them any slack, especially if they try to weasel out of it.

Behind the scenesEdit

His name appears to be a pun on the Chinese word for dark soy sauce, "lǎochōu".
