In several occasions, Hector Voorhees will refer to the player as "china". I didn't play as Xianyong Bai so why would he call me that? Is it a nickname or slang for something?


Voorhees is South African, has a thick accent and uses a lot of SA slang. China/chine is SA slang for "friend", likely from the Cockney rhyming slang "china plate" = "mate":

china/chine – a friend; as in the greeting howzit my china (likely origin: Cockney rhyming slang "China plate" (meaning "my mate"); from early British immigrants.

So it's equivalent to calling you "mate", "bro" or "dude".
