Burning Suns Wikia

- "Everything is worth what some schmuck with more money than sense will pay for it."

Wai-Mei Xox is a terran mercenary specialising in technology theft affiliated to Shan'Chael's black-market recruitment network. She is hired by Jennifer Bronwen as part of her crew at the beginning of the events of Conflagration.


Little is known of Wai-Mei's origins and background. Her specialist skill set in handling delicate and valuable alien technologies puts her in high demand, and she is able to leverage that interest to keep clear of legal trouble on the rare occasions when she is caught in the act.
