Ching Shih rose to power after the death of her pirate husband, taking his place and earning the fear and respect of bloodthirsty pirates everywhere. Her fast ships and ruthless reputation quickly caught the interest of Ching's branch leadership. The Lucians soon had her passing information and eliminating enemies up and down the coast of China. And when Ching decided she was ready to give up the seafaring life, the Chinese government forgave her dastardly crimes with a full pardon. Was there Lucian involvement in this strange decision?
