- "Fantastic! As a Triad, all my troubles will be over!"
- ―Triad Rookie
The Triad Rookie is a character appearing in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.
He is first seen during the mission Recruitment Drive, where Huang Lee is sent by his Uncle to hire several newly arrived immigrants to work for his gang. Huang arrives to find the man under attack by local street punks, and manages to save his life. The recruit is grateful and accompanies Huang in the search for more gang members. After recruiting two other immigrants the group drives back to a tattoo parlor, where Huang draws the Triad symbol on the recruit's arm, thus initiating him into the gang.
He's seen again during Clear the Pier. Wu Lee sends him and another Triad to assist Huang in killing Chan Jaoming. Upon recognizing Huang the recruit informs him that his wife highly disapproved of his tattoo and thanks him sarcastically. The three then engage in a gunfight with Chan's goons. The Triad recruit can be killed during the battle, but if he survives he will follow Huang all the way to Chan and then remain behind.
