Growing up to a wealthy Hong Kong business man, Nuan Mei had no conscience and was without fear. In life she was a hedonist and sensualist, eager to experience everything. She died in an auto accident and thrust into the underworld. She experienced the chaos of her life and realized she had no idea who she really was. She had no roots.
After she became a Hungry Dead, Angúo Chun of the Righteous Devils of Kowloon found her and worked to introduce her into her new existence. Nuan Mei tried to fit in, but soon experienced the same existential doubts she had while alive.
Nuan Mei declared herself heimin and broke away from her wu. Her new existence is not so different then when she was living. She hopes to find real meaning in her prolonged existence by associating with as much of the supernatural world as possible: nature spirits, hengeyokai, occasional ghosts and the few remaining Kin-jin. She spends little to no time within Kuei-jin society.
Nuan Mei fears for herself and for her spirit friends all over Hong Kong what the changes of Chinas control will bring. She is, however, planning on remaining in Hong Kong and experience whatever the future will bring.
