Yen, more famously known as The Amazing Yen, is a Chinese acrobat who is the second of two newbies in the group. He is brought in for his flexibility and short stature as the grease man.
Yen performed with a traveling circus before he was recruited by Danny and Rusty. They met with him after watching his performance at Barnum's Kaleideoscape.

After being recruited, Yen arrived at Reuben's manor simultaneous with his fellow candidates for a presentation about the Benedict Job.
He is the first to actually enter the heavily guarded and secured casino-vault, brought into the underground backstage tunnels while confined in a money-cart cunningly delivered by the Malloy brothers, while being watched by Saul’s Lyman Zerga character.
Once inside, Yen places the explosives from Zerga’s briefcase on the vault door, waiting for Danny and Linus to trigger it from the outside. His newfound wealth after the heist results in him inhabiting a huge Florida mansion, dressing up with a lot of bling. His specific skills are much less necessary in the subsequent heists, though in Thirteen he is responsible for climbing up an elevator shaft.
