Choi Yingpei in 1995.

Choi Yingpei is one of the leaders of the New York City criminal underworld. She operates out of a store in Chinatown. She is the aunt of Peter Choy.


Shortly after her nephew, Peter, was honored by the city for rescuing a five-year-old from drowning alongside his girlfriend (and daughter of rival mobster, Huracán Sanchez), Rosaria Sanchez; Yingpei warned him not to associate with her anymore.

Yingpei was present the last time Dino Dracon was active in the city, and was not happy about his release from Sing Sing. She attended a summit with the heads of the other Five Families to discuss how to deal with Dino. ("Miracle Child") But shortly afterwards, Dino abducted her nephew (and Rosie) when they were meeting in Central Park in secret. After receiving photos from Dino of Rosie being forced to pose, taking her nephew hostage, she declared war on the Sanchez Family. ("Render Unto Caesar")

Shortly after surviving an assassination attempt (with help from Lexington and Broadway, Izaak Slaughter called the other crime lords and expressed his suspicions that Dino was playing them; but Yingpei remined suspicious. ("Young At Heart") After her nephew was rescued by the gargoyles, she agreed to Izaak's summit. But when a bomb (planted by Dino) was discovered at the summit, she voiced her favor of tabling things as everybody began pointing fingers before agreeing to proceed with peace talks after Brooklyn reminded her that they rescued her nephew. The talks were disrupted by the arrival of Dino Dracon, who intended to kill everyone in the room... but was soon apparently killed by Dominic Dracon.

With the hostilities ended, Yingpei and the other crime lords chose to recognize Dominic Dracon as the Pater Familias to all six crime families. But unbeknownst to her, she handed influence over her syndicate to Antoinette Dracon and, through her, Demona. ("Cold Comfort")
