Tales From the Yellow City
Ni Lan i
Master of Opium
Ni Lan i always walks on tiptoe, as if she wears invisible heels on her bare feet.
Ni Lan i is the Lady of Opium along the God River. She knows how to consume each and every variety of poppy, she knows which Oligarchy produces which type, and she knows the going prices of each type. She does not actually trade in Opium, herself – she believes that the information trade is enough. Perhaps this lack of ambition is an effect of her addiction. But either way, she is one of the most casually-powerful people in the Lamarakhi tribes.
She is Mu’s second cousin.
