Ming grew up in Hong Kong, his parents were fairly successful business-people and had made a decent living for themselves. They had a nice family apartment in a fancy high rise building, however Ming's parents did not wish to see Ming become a lay about, good for nothing slob. They demanded and enforced that Ming would have to make his own way in life for the most part. He would have to get himself a job, and make his own money, not just living off of their previous successes. Ming was furious but had no choice, so he became a delivery driver. His parents were not pleased. Especially because ‘driver’ is a loose term. He was a courier, on foot. Also it wasn’t food he was delivering day to day, it was hard drugs. Coke, heroin and occasionally meth.. Mings parents were aware of the situation, and threatened to turn him over to the police, however Ming knew this would never happen, they would not stain their family name by outing him as a drug mule, no, this was not what they wanted to be known for. So they let him continue, biding their time until they could force him out of the country through blackmail and threats. They took his phone one night whilst he slept, and threatened to ruin his business with it, this would mean the death of Ming if his suppliers got word of it.. So he agreed to leave the country. After a few meetings, Ming set himself up as a Continental drug mule, he learnt the best ways to conceal, smuggle and transport drugs on a fairly large scale to different countries. It was through this that Ming found himself on a fairly large Crab fishing trawler, it was the perfect disguise to sneak right past coast guards, and dock at a random beach in Chernarus, however, Ming never made it to Chernarus, or atleast, the trawler didn’t. Several of the crew members became infected after sick coast guard officials boarded the boat and brought the infection with them. When they turned Ming was forced to grab all the drugs he could, get in the brightest and tightest little yellow dinghy, and float his way to the shores of Chernarus.
Ming quickly realised that this infection had taken over, and if he was to continue to survive in this world, he’d need to make a move quick. He began to offer his courier services to several of the early settlements and camps, and stayed safe for the most part due to his slender asian frame and moped riding skills. Ming soon found his way to the Saviors, where he found himself somewhat at home with this ragtag family, and he begun to make a new name for the Tau family.
