Yao Lu Li grew up in London in a Sino-British household, a culturally diverse upbringing that sparked a life-long interest for the world around her. Ambitious and focused, Yao pursued a brilliant career in Law and International Relations, building a wealth of connections across the world. When Chinese law allowed the creation of private security companies, Yao seized the chance to create her own global business, using her contacts to acquire the best agents and assignments. Responding to rising domestic threats, Yao founded Bai Hu Zhao, a special unit handling complex hostage rescue operations across China, further increasing her reputation.
It was only a matter of time until Yao crossed paths with Elite Squad. When its leader, Max Claymore, suggested combining forces with Bai Hu Zhao, she knew she had found the perfect partnership.
