Qiang Zhang was a Chinese nobleman and ally of the Assassin Brotherhood. Though not a member of the vigilantes of China, Qiang still used a cryptonym: The Eagle.
Born and raised in Chinese nobility, Qiang made strong contacts as a young man. Many women saw themselves by his side, but he preferred the company of a man's. One of his lovers took good use of Qiang's desires, and made him fall in love with him. Presenting Qiang for the Brotherhood, he began funding their actions. As a noble, he owned areas all over China. This made sure the Assassins could operate in all corners of the mainland. When his lover died on a mission for the Assassins, he kept his necklace as a memory.
As a trophy, Qiang's necklace was taken to the Grand Master.
