Background: Ghost-buster and part-time healer. He trained in Wing-Chun Kung-Fu since he was 10, after being Jinxed. Through his misfortune, he stole from the wrong man, who caught him and decided to teach him the mystical arts of Kung-Fu, in a Buddhist monastery near Shang-Hai. His Kung-Fu is strong. He is Buddhist, and also values Confucian wisdom like all good Chinese do. Perhaps his Confucianism is paradoxical, when his life is reviewed: he frequently aids the defenseless and oppressed, even if it means upsetting whatever political or religious interests are in the area.
Outsider: He’s Chinese, so he’s an outsider to the West. He tries to fit in by cutting off that ridiculous ponytail-braid (queue) and wearing western clothing. He is also an outsider to some
Chinese from Shan Fran.
Wanted(minor): Wanted for resisting the injustices committed by the Chinese Cartels in Shan Fran, and fighting for the people against Gang Wars and Oppression. Generally wanted for upsetting the peace during his Ghost-busting and healing efforts.
Jinxed(major): Bad Luck. Pissed off an old Chinese medicine woman (at least, he thinks she was a mortal) when he was ten, by stealing her dentures as a practical joke. She sure showed him! He has to try 33% harder now.
Goals: Someday he hopes to carry on the Kung-Fu tradition and teach students in the States what he has learned from his teacher, Master Lian Sheng. His master is dead, killed in a raid by radical dissidents. He escaped, but is unwelcome in Shang-Hai: the citizens view him with suspicion and mistrust, believing he was somehow the cause of strife in the area. In the mean-time, he continues his ghost-busting and healing efforts, to protect the people.
long-term motivation: justice, and sticking up for the little guy.
