Appearance: Ma’s noodles might be thin, but he isn’t. He’s your basic tower of flesh and fat, fueled by an appetite for food, rice wine, and women. It is hard to guess his age but most think he is in his forties or fifties. He keeps his greasy black hair pulled back in a tight pony tail and it is hard to tell where his chins and neck fat end and his shoulders start. He enjoys wearing expensive flowing robes that billow over his massive body.
He controls most of the brothels in town, even those located in other Big Brothers’ turf. If you mistreat one of Shan Fan’s professional ladies, Thin Noodles’ rascals are going to want to have a not-so-gentle word with you. Ma likes to be seen in public, spending his money, but if you don’t know the etiquette, he’s no more approachable than any other triad leader.
Underneath Big Ears Tam Thin Noodle Ma is the most powerful Shan Fan Triad Member with the exception of Rat Skinner Hou. Rat Skinner and Thin Noodle are roughly equal in strength and are in constant competition in Shan Fan for more power and respect.
