The Guardians: Wong Fei Hung

I want Wong Fei Hung in this group so he’s the first Guardian. The way Jet Li portrayed him in Once Upon A Time In China was so inspiring I would have it no other way. I’ll admit bringing him from the past to the future is a tad Captain Americaesqe but I think he’s a strong enough character to stand on his own.

The next Guardian I’ll work on is Sun Wukong, the Monkey King. His story is linked to the new Wong Fei Hung’s and I hope to play Monkey off this character during the Phantasam game.

As I add new characters I’ll update the previous ones with each character’s thoughts/feelings on their teammates.

History

Project Chimera is a Chinese program to clone the great people of the past. It’s met with little success. Bodies can be rebuilt but not spirits or minds.  However, a year ago the project was vindicated. Chimera had secured a DNA sample of the folk hero Wong Fei Hung and using an experimental process they reconstituted his body in a mere three days. Much to their delight they also replicated the mind, personality and skills of the great hero.

Disaster nearly struck when Hydra attacked Chimera’s facilities in Beijing. The guards were ill equipped. Wong Fie Hung however, not so much. With nothing but his Hung Gar he single-handedly drove the terrorists back. His struggle was caught and went viral on You Tube. Rather than hide who he was the Government revealed the project and its greatest success; holding up the newly resurrected Wong Fei Hung as a shining example of Chinese ingenuity.

A few months later he was assigned leadership of the Guardians, China’s answer to the Avengers.

It’s funny though, Project Chimera has yet to duplicate their success with Wong Fie Hung. Even their attempts to copy  just the improved body have failed.

Personality and Appearance

On the outside Fie Hung exudes confidence, selflessness and reason. Inwardly he has his doubts. This is not his China, this is not his time and he may not even be himself. Fei Hung is antiquated but he’s not stupid, he’s picked up what cloning means and is disturbed by its connotations. Despite that he’s accepted his country’s call and strives to serve as a worthy hero.

Fie Hung prefers the old ways but is willing to adapt to the new. He’s accepts his all of his teammates as truly worthy to fight for China. He studies the ‘new’ medicine avidly. However at times his ‘age’ shows when he gets flummoxed with modern gadgets or culture.

Fie Hung is above all a reasonable man. He’ll try diplomacy before violence (time willing). He holds his own beliefs dear but will accept differences in opinion. He’s loyal to his country but he holds no hatred for others.

Wong Fie Hung is an attractive, athletic young man with fierce brown eyes. He wears his long black hair in a tight, traditional braid. He dresses as a 1800’s style, wearing a white marshal outfit while on Guardian missions.

Abilities and Resources

Fei Hung’s body was built to last. His strength and endurance are beyond the peak of human achievement. He’ll never get sick and his life expectancy’s double your average man’s. The modern Wong Fei Hung has kicked through Hydra armor and took on entire enemy squads without tiring.

Fei Hung is the undisputed master of Hung Gar. He’s not as ‘mystical’ as Iron Fist but his style holds a terrifying efficiency.

Wong Fei Hung is a very skilled doctor however his Guardian duties prevent him from utilizing this to the full benefit of mankind.

As a popular hero and the leader of the Guardians Wong Fie Hung holds considerable clout. He refuses to use such for politics but has managed to bring considerable attention to charitable causes across China an the world.

Party Integration

Sun Wukong: You don’t believe in fairy tails but Wukong seems real enough, perhaps he’s an alien like that Thor character? He’s rambunctious, undisciplined and very very powerful. Quite frankly at times he scares you. On the other hand his desire to protect human life seems earnest enough. Why he chose to serve you, you have no idea. However, it’s best that he’s on your side rather than against it.

Yi the Archer: She wields the Celestial Bow, a powerful alien artifact, this makes her a force to be reckoned with. She’s suffered in the name of protecting others, this makes her a hero. All she needs is a little more training and confidence.

Summoner: You honestly don’t know who terrifies you more, Wukong or her. Summoner has a brilliant scientific mind but also a manic curiosity that makes her unpredictable and dangerous. On the other hand her tech and talents are indispensable.

Thunder:  The science of Evolution fascinates you and to witness it in action in your fellow man is exhilarating. Thunder’s a good man. You’re glad to have him on the team.
