Chen is a character from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984).

History[]

Chen was one of the sons of Chinese crime-lord Lao Che and a lieutenant in his criminal-empire. Chen was quiet, cold and calculating and assisted his father by expanding his legitimate business to Lao Che Air-Freight.

In 1935, Chen accompanied his father and two half-brothers in his father's nightclub Club Obi Wan for business. Lao Che had made a deal with his enemy, adventurer Indiana Jones and the two had arranged to trade the ashes of Nurhachi, the first emperor of the Manchu Dynasty for a diamond known as the Peacock's Eye; Lao possessing the diamond and Jones the ashes. Sao Feng's family however planned on killing Jones to dispose of their enemy and keep both precious artifacts.

After exchanging items, Lao poisoned Jones' drink and held the antidote ransom for the peacock's eye. When Jones' ally Wu Han pulled a gun on the gangsters, Chen shot him in the chest with the gunshot disguised amongst the popping of champagne bottles. A fight ensued within Club Obi Wan where Indy grabbed a skewer of pigeon flambé that he threw at Chen, impaling and killing him.
