SInce 2062, the Octagon has been struggling to stay afloat. Traditionally the Octagon triad has been deeply affiliated with the Red Dragon Association in Hong Kong. The Red Dragon Association went to war with the Yellow Lotus triad, and obliterated them from Hong Kong. Around the same time, the Octagon went on the offensive against the Yellow Lotus triad in Seattle.
However, the Octagon failed where the Red Dragon Association succeeded. As a result, the Red Dragon Association sent Chen Kwan-Ti to assist the Octagon in their offensive. However, it was too little and too late. David Gao, the Octagon’s Lodgemaster, began to get sick and has slowly receded from the spotlight and conducts more and more of his business via Matrix meetings. The Incense Master, Chen Kwan-Ti, has been relied upon more and more heavily as a result, and now manages almost all the day-to-day affairs of the triad.
