Name: Liu Sho
Alignment: True Neutral
Physical Description: Pandaren as a whole look incredibly similar to humanoid pandas, sporting powerful stocky builds and five fingered hands with opposable thumbs and claws. Liu Sho is no exception, standing at five foot five inches and with a wide body with deceptive muscle under his furry form. He weighs one hundred and twenty five kilos, but moves with trained grace and carefree stride. He usually wears the traditional garb of his people (see reference) and carries a large flask on his back.
Personality Description: Pandaren are carefree individuals who enjoy every day as it comes and live their lives carefree and happy. They prefer to avoid conflict, and Liu Sho adheres to this almost religiously hence his neutrality. However, when angered a Pandaren loses themselves in battle which can make them a dangerous foe, and ally.
Natural abilities: Physically as strong as a bear, Liu can lift four times his weight with effort. His claws can rip through flesh and his fangs have enough bite force to tear out a man’s throat with ease. On all fours, he can sprint at thirty five miles per hour, on two feet he can manage twenty. He’s agile for his size, through a life of training in martial arts and spirituality, although his drunkenness usually mars this grace slightly. He can move about as fast as a peak human, and his reflexes are at human peak, despite being drunk most of the time. He is also physically robust, allowing him to take hits but also giving him significantly above human stamina.
His sense of smell is heightened significantly and his hearing, his eye sight is about the same as the average humans but is only half as effected by the dark.
His body is as durable as a panda’s thick fur protects him from the cold and elemental attacks to some degree. Arrows struggle to pierce his hide and sword strikes thrown with the strength of an average human are only capable of minor grazes.
Adapted skills: Liu spent his young life in the ritualistic and spiritual monk training of all Pandaren, developing significant unarmed fighting significant. This accounts for his unnatural grace, even under the influence. He is fond of a style of drunken fighting, where his senses are numbed yet his fluidity in battle becomes completely unpredictable.
He’s also an adept stave fighter, and can use a wide multitude of other weapons at an apprentice level, only modern weapons are completely unusable in his hands, and he’s not a particularly good marksman either.
He has a moderate amount of acrobatic skill and climbing ability, exceptional when considering his build and bulk. He’s also very good at making beer.
Liu is an elementalist. He must manipulate the elements his hands, therefore he can only control two elements at the same time and only with significant concentration. Manipulating the elements takes significant time and effort, which can exhaust him over time.
Fire: Liu can use his ability to spark up a flame in either hand and throw it a moderate distance. He can also manipulate fires already present in a brutish way, such as curling it into a ball and throwing it untidily towards an opponent or spraying it forward as a wave of flame.
Earth: Liu can throw rocks of around half his weight or the earth mass equivalent. He can also shatter the earth or make it unsteady under an opponent’s weight so long as they are less than ten feet away.
Air: Liu can use the air to only a small degree aggressively, using it to fuel his fire or disperse alcohol for the fire. Passively he can hear words spoken from a significant distance away and feel significant breakage of a body of air.
Water: Liu most prefers his manipulation of fire and water. With the water he can manipulate liquids (so long as they are predominantly made of H20) and heal wounds. He can manipulate liquids of a weight up to twenty kilos. The magical healing qualities of water are near boundless, however Liu is currently only capable of healing light grazes and the like in battle, and must work hard for long periods of time and concentration to deal with serious wounds. (After battle)
Character Equipment: Chen’s Flask, a casket carried on his back which fills with any beverage Liu wishes. This could be water, or alcohol of any kind. There are also three magical alcoholic beverages which can be produced in the flask. The Flask was an artefact long lost by an ancient Pandaren adventurer and brew master. Chen adopted the role of its guardian after finding it by what he believed as chance in his wanderings. The cask is incredibly difficult to damage or pierce, but not impossible, any damage done to the flask magically repairs itself after a period of time directly proportional to the severity of the damage. Something like a bullet hole for example would take an hour to repair. The flask only works for Pandaren and is bound to Liu’s soul, which in the strange world he finds himself in is renewable. This allows him to track the flask no matter where it is taken, and it takes enormous power to completely destroy.
(Liu can only have the benefits of one magic spirit at a time, and the flask takes time to refill so swapping instantaneously is impossible)
Xian’s Steadying Ale: Provides Liu with resistance to fear and magic, it also makes him incredibly difficult to unbalance by force.
Lian’s Supple Brew: Provides Liu with an added grace and agility, allowing him to move roughly twice as fluidly and fast as before. It also heightens his to twice human peak.
Warrior’s Spirit: Forces Liu into a beserker rage with doubles his strength and endurance, and allows him to use his magic more forcefully but less gracefully.
Named abilities: Will add more in the future, for now.
Breath of fire: Takes a long drought of ale and uses a mix of air and water magic to spit it out in an arc or cone. After it's launched he sparks into into fire, so it burns intensely for a few moments.
Character History: Liu set out at the age of twenty as was custom. Twenty marks a quarter of one’s life, with the Pandaren’s average lifespan of eighty years. He wandered the world looking for ingredients for brews and experiences, not particularly bound by morale’s and happy to take each day as it comes. His trials lead to a strange occurrence however as he happened upon Chen’s flask, an ancient Pandaren artefact which greatly enhanced his powers while also giving him a sudden insight into his purpose in life. He still wanders, but he is bound to protect the flask at all costs.
