In the book, Kara Chan's boyfriend is Eden Malone, a Harvard graduated African-American attorney working in Hong Kong and fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese. Intelligent and articulate, he is always the voice of reason and logic in the midst of chaos and drama. He is also a former linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers. He is the founder and CEO of an urban youth center that helps inner city children in Los Angeles. He cares for Kara Chan deeply. When I was developing his character, I was thinking of him resembling the American actor, Shemar Moore. Currently portraying Derek Morgan, FBI special agent on 'Criminal Minds'.
