|Yang - ヤン|
|D.O.B.||15th June 1931|
|Appears in||Shenmue II|
Yang (ヤン) owns the Great View Herbs in the Great View Building, Thousand White Quarter, Kowloon. He used to work for Yuanda Zhu, and Ren describes him as a part-time pharmacist, part-time snitch. He prepares many kinds of medicines in the back of his shop, and gets some of his ingredients from the black market. This is also where he gets his information.
Ryo comes into contact with Yang when he and Ren go to visit him to try and get information on Yuanda Zhu. He agrees to set up a meeting and gives them the time and place, however the meeting was a set-up and the two of them were played straight into the hands of Dou Niu, the leader of the Yellow Heads gang that operates in Kowloon.
Once Ryo and Ren escape this ordeal they go back to visit Yang again to see what they can turn up from him, and express their discontent at being set-up. He explains that he had no choice and was threatened by Dou Niu, and that he genuinely has no idea where Yuanda Zhu is. However he does leave them with a new lead, to go and find Huang, a known wiretapper, as he may have some information.
