The Triads are one of many criminal organizations commonly found in Chinese communities. The name "triad" come the interpretation by the English of the symbols of the Hung Sun, a secret society opposed to the English occupiers during the 17th century China. The triangle symbol represented the relationship between Heaven, Earth, and Man.
Triads are heavily reliant on magic. It is rumored that the supreme leader of the Triads is the great eastern dragon Lung.
