The proprietor of the House of Blossoms brothel is the larger-than-life Madam Xiao Xiao, a curious character in both looks and personality. Xiao Xiao is a woman that many firmly believe to be hiding much more than first meets the eye. It is widely held that she's actually a man although none would ever mention it to her face and none certainly would ever look below-skirts to test how far that theory goes.

For Madam Xiao Xiao, this suits her just fine. Secrets and irreverent gossip are her mainstay livelihood and something she prides herself on knowing inside and out. Behind the gilt walls and polished wood of the House of Blossoms, the Madam prowls, peeks and pries into all the secrets of the rich and famous without their knowledge, amassing a wealth of knowledge that rivals the riches of her coffers.

As one of the main minds of the criminal underworld, Xiao Xiao's outrageous costumes and glitzy exterior covers a well-organized outfit that deals in various rackets from opium smuggling to blackmail extortion. She runs it all with extravagant aplomb.

Although quite ruthless, Xiao Xiao does genuinely care for her working girls, the Blossoms and Petals. She will not take any nonsense or abuse when it comes to her staff and is constantly in a measured war with the Thief-Taker General's attempts to squeeze her for more and more black tax.
