Events of GTA Chinatown Wars

Wu is the uncle of Huang Lee, the protagonist of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and is suspected to be the second most powerful Triad in Liberty City. With current Liberty City Triad boss Hsin Jaoming's retirement quickly approaching, Lee is one of the main contenders for the position as his successor. As it turns out he killed Huang's father in order to get the Yu Jian Sword and he was also the FBI informant that the Triads were looking for, but this isn't revealed until later in the game.

When Huang first arrives in Liberty City, he is attacked and left for dead by gangsters who stole the sword. Huang escapes and tells his uncle what happened. It turned out Wu wanted to give the Yu Jian to Hsin to cement his position as successor. Because of the loss, Wu was dishonored and he and Huang struggle to keep business afloat. 

Later, Hsin and Huang try to find the FIB informant causing trouble for the Triads. Hsin suspects Huang and attempts to kill him, but is stopped by Wu. Wu convinces Hsin to give Huang time to find the real informant, bringing haste to the mission. During the search, Wu places "evidence" that narrow the search down to Hsin's son Chan, and Zhou Ming. Disgraced that his own son is an informant, Hsin steps into retirement, appoints Wu as the new head of the Triads, and Huang kills the two suspects.

Near the end of the game, Huang's own police connection, Wade Heston, who reveals the rat is still out there, and holding a meeting with his allies. Haung and Heston drop in on the meeting and Wu is revealed to be behind everything. Wu tries to explain himself, but Huang won't listen, and Heston tries to arrest Wu, but Wu orders his men to kill them. Haung and Weston fight their way out, while Wu flees. Haung and Heston chase Wu across the city, by boat and by car before Wu stops at Hsin's house. In a confrontation, Hsin demands Wu hand over the sword, and Wu responds by stabbing him. Huang arrives and kills Wu, and Hsin appoints Haung as head of the Triads. 

He has an entry in the LCPD Database in Grand Theft Auto IV.
