Bu xing. I hoped that after 200 years, we could forget past hatred.”
The Captain of a Yangtze-class submarine stranded in the harbor is a surprisingly welcoming man, especially towards an American soldier. Perhaps the guilt over nuking the Commonwealth using the missiles on board his submarine did, in fact, change him. And so did the isolation, after his Yangtze struck a sea mine not long after the Great War, the radiation from the damaged reactor ghoulified the captain and his crew. For two centuries, he eked out an existence scavenging what he could from the destroyed city and fighting off raiders, gathering intelligence and information that would, one day, help him repair the vessel and return it to Zhongguo, his home. There, he will rebuild or die. Whatever his fate, he wants to see his home, one last time. Trouble is, the Forged and other raider gangs might be a little too much to tackle for the ancient ghoul - submariner or not.
His only companions during these two centuries were his crew mates. Unlike their captain, they have succumbed to radiation poisoning and turned feral. Zao couldn't bring himself to put them out of their misery.
