Hak, Black Chrysanthemum from Shadowrun Sourcebook, Ghost Cartels.png

Hak is the Guardian of the Black Chrysanthemum Triad.

Hak is the Sin Fung (Guardian) of the Black Chrysanthemum Triad. Only he knows the identities of the secret leaders of the Black Chrysanthemum. He's in his 30s and is a veteran of the brothel gangs of Macao. His face became scarred due to a toxic razorback boar, that he killed using only a knife. The only individual whom can walk the streets of the Kowloon Walled City safely, few are that suicidal. In Cantonese, his name means "carve" or "cruel". Hak's job is to orchestrated the takeover and absorption of the smaller gangs into the Triad.[1]

Hak's scarred face is the public face of the most feared and hated Triad in Hong Kong. All their rival Triads and gangs have failed to defeat the man, whom is also feared by the enemies of the Black Chrysanthemum. He knows how to use that fear to the advantage of the Triad. Part of what makes Hak so dangerous is that he is a physical adept.[2]

It was Hak who led the forces of the Black Chrysanthemum during the Smoke Circle-Black Chrysanthemum War in 2071 which resulted in the deaths of 10s of thousands and greatly weakened both Triads.[3][4]
