* AmbiguousDisorder: While the game proper never gets into it, the police files on Wei make it pretty clear that contrary to his perfect social functioning he's pretty far gone into something.

* AmbiguousDisorder: While the game proper never gets into it, the police files on Wei make it pretty clear that contrary to his perfect social functioning he's pretty far gone into something. It's still unclear if it's a disorder or a really adaptable personality.

Added DiffLines:

* OldMaster: Younger than normally depicted, perhaps in his fifties. He acts the part to Wei, challenging him with probing questions and teaching him new techniques.

* ByronicHero: Wei at first appears like a generic cop AntiHero, with a heavy aversion to killing anyone except the target of his revenge: [[spoiler:Dogeyes, whom he plans to murder. Then after the warehouse gunfight, where he is forced to kill many people for no reason other than survival, the trauma of it wakes up Wei's dark side and he quickly becomes this. Attractive? Check. Brooding to the point of setting up titanium thick emotional walls? Check. Haunted by both a significant loss AND a past crime? Check. Passionate in his beliefs? Check. Heavy conflict with other's philosophies and especially with authority that results in (temporary) rejection/exile from the police force via Pendrew and social isolation from the surviving Triad members ? Check. His transition to Byronic Hero is exemplified as the takedowns he can use get more and more brutal as the game goes on, starting with simple (if harsh) knockouts when he is still just an upstanding AntiHero and eventually evolving into impaling people on Sword-fish heads or burning them to death as he is more and more convinced that underground HongKong (barring his branch of the [[UndyingLoyalty Sun On Yee]]) deserves to burn.]]

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In the mission where we are introduced to him, Winston has been summoned to meet him and he's completely scared out of his mind, spending the entire trip telling Wei his last wishes. When they finally arrive we see this polite old man gently forgiving Winston's actions (see ReasonableAuthorityFigure below) and praising Wei's recent actions. He then rewards Wei by referring him to Roland Ho, but when Wei tries to politely decline, Uncle Po gives Wei a stern "Don't argue with me", which immediately silences Wei despite Po not even having had raised his voice. A perfect indication that Po can be quite reasonable and polite but you do ''not'' want to defy him.
