The Chen Family were from Hong Kong, Mr Chen, the leader of the family was an accountant for the local Triad, and Mrs Chen running the fish market that was a safe house for the local Triad leaders. The Triad Mr Chen was the accountant was one of the biggest in Hong Kong, and other Chinese Triads didn’t take a liking to this, therefore making them a big target.
1991, Mrs Chen (Who is pregnant at the time) is asleep, when she suddenly hears a loud bang, and then silence. Upon walking down the stairs to investigate, she sees Mr Chen, bloodied, not moving, and arms dangling on the sides. Mr Chen was taken out by a rival Triad. The leadership of Mr Chens Triad, decided to re-home Mrs Chen and her unborn baby to Donegal Ireland, where the was a small Chinese Population.
Declan Chen was born on September 12th. The Chens had protection from the Triads, and therefore allowed Declan to have massive prestige within the Irish Triad. His mother suddenly passed away when he was 15, the boss of the Irish Triad brought him in under his protection, and began training him and instated him into the Triad. He was the personal messenger for the Boss, and slowly ranked up his prestige. Declan attended Donegal Primary and Secondary school and then left when he was 17.
When he turned 22, he was fully instated within the Triad, and had the backing of the boss to do what he wanted. The Triad were lacking weapons, and ammunition to fend off Local Irish Mobsters, and some remnants of the rebel groups. While in the Triad, Declan made it clear that he did not want to bring harm to any Irish civilians, as he sees himself as Irish. Therefore he only started trouble with the people who started things with his boys.
The Boss offered him a new job, he was now in Charge in the smuggling of Weapons into the country. With the Chinese Government taking control of the South China Sea, the Triad couldn’t smuggle weapons from Hong Kong. Therefore, Declan found a new route, the war-torn country of Chernarus, with local warlords wanting to make money to gain prestige of NATO/Chernarussian Government.
The Triad setup on the outskirts Berezino, and that was their base of operations, the smuggling was going well, business was booming. Then one day, the boats stopped arriving, the warlords stopped delivering the product. With the realisation of the epidemic that was happening, the Triad began to panic, and some of Declans men began to run, Declan realising he lost support of his men, packed up and went into hiding in the surrounding forests.
Although Declan's heritage is Hong Kongese, he sees himself as Irish, is proud to be Irish and will do anything to protect fellow Irishmen and protect Ireland
