This article is about the Primal Earth NPC. For his Praetorian counterpart, see Wu Yin (Praetorian).
Mr. Yin


Mr. Yin is a hero contact in Faultline at coordinates (-857, -519.75, -424.5). Mr. Yin is a Store contact. Unlike other store contacts in City of Heroes, he is unlocked by running a regular contact's missions (Penelope Yin) rather than a mission of his own.

Mr. Yin first appears as a captive in the Rescue Mr. Yin mission from Penelope Yin, which is the mission which unlocks him. During that mission, he must be freed from his Lost kidnappers and escorted to the mission exit. Mr. Yin as a captive has the hit points of a Lieutenant of the same level and no attacks of his own.


Small Business Owner

Born in Hong Kong in the 1960s, Wu Yin left his native country as a young man to find his fortune as a sailor. He came to Paragon City in the 1980s with a deed to a small grocery store that he had won in a card game while at sea. Mr. Yin ran his store for many years, until the destruction of Overbrook in the Faultline Incident. He recently returned to reopen his store now that the city has begun to rebuild, but was kidnapped by the Lost. Though Wu Yin never married, he does have a daughter, Penelope Yin. The identity of Penelope's absent mother is a subject he tends to avoid, and he has simply raised his daughter on his own.


Mr. Yin sells a very small selection of level 13, 17, and 21 Single Origin Enhancements. He will only sell to characters who have the Rescuer badge.

  • In Praetoria, Wu Yin's ex-wife happens to be Vanessa DeVore, the Praetorian counterpart of Primal Earth's Vanessa DeVore. She is the mother of the Praetorian Penelope Yin (again, with the Primal Earth counterpart sharing the same name). If events happen to be similar on Primal Earth, this may explain why Mr. Yin is hesitant on revealing any details of Penelope's mother.
