Jim San Fu
-Jimmy(few dare call him this)
-Generally known as Mr. Fu
Tall, handsome, with a knack for good first impressions, and a very intuitive mind. If you only met him once or twice, or never seen him in action, or reacting to something with anger, you would wonder what this pleasant man is doing in a Triad organization. However, exposure to him in any of the aforementioned events, and a few others, would quickly show why. He has a tattoo of Medusa on his back, along with some scars along his legs, arms, and torso. His face is amazingly untouched, however, and his eyes have a very odd far off look when you can see them.
Position in Triad:
Officially a security consultant for a front company Owned by grandfather Wu.
On the surface, a very pleasant character, with an easy, suave, even witty personality. He can crack jokes, capable of making any person feel comfortable in his presence. Except, of course, the ones that know what he is capable of. Diagnosed with psychopathy, with hints of sociopathy, he is known for being quite terrifying when he wants to be, with a calm collected exterior, his eyes the only true vision of what he was. Loyalty is one of the man's few redeeming qualities, meaning that if he took money for something, nothing, save death itself would keep him from fulfilling that role. He is comparatively low-born, and while not treated as such, he is paranoid, and feels like he is being talked down to at all times when it comes to business, and is therefore very confrontational, in that cold, slick manner that he takes after.
When it comes to stuff that he is good at,, he is very patient, very rarely, if ever, allowing emotion to take over for him. He treats his life in a very irritating 'it's only business' attitude, something that, while greatly appreciated in his line of work, ends up putting up a barrier between him and everyone else, making him something of a cold, calculating machine. People keep him around because he is needed, and good at what he does, but not for love or loyalty to him. A person in power feeling threatened by him is not out of the question, although he deals with betrayal in a very gruesome and vicious manner. It is, after all, all business.

(At least two paragraphs)
Born in L.A., to a family of Chinese Immigrants. Not very well off, and with five children to feed, the life that they led was, while durable, not the high road at all. The parents worked extremely hard, and required that the older children work as well, either taking care of the house, the younger siblings, or, in Jim's case, as he was the oldest, actually getting a job. But he was an ambitious young man, and saw very quickly that remaining in this side of life would get him nowhere, fast. So, as soon as he was able, he ran away from home, leaving his parents a letter to explain why he left. They would understand. If they didn't there wasn't much they could do anyway. They would just get the next oldest a job, and things would be peachy.
He moved from dingy job to dingy job for a while scraping together a living, barely subsisting in the lower dregs of society. As a couple years passed, and he started to have second thoughts about leaving, he saw the armed Forces to be a way out. He joined, and, with the skills(not the nice set) that he earned on the streets, he caught the eye of a particular gentleman in a grey suit. Next thing he knew, he was in a new training camp, with men of equally rough, or rougher, backgrounds. They were being trained to be a specialized force, working officially as a liaison to the DEA, but really taking orders, and intel, from the CIA. They were set to work to fight drugs at the source. They were sent all over the world, centering their efforts in South and Central America, and Southeastern Asia.
Unlike the other squads put together for similar purposes, this team, called the Medusa Squad, was sent in when delicate jobs were needed, especially ones that needed some things that were against hundreds of Human Rights laws to be done quietly and effectively. They were also paid extraordinarily well, to ensure their loyalty. Despite that, Medusa had a record high in MIAs and KIAs, as well as topping out in successful missions. On one such mission, Jim was very near to an explosion, leaving him relatively intact, but requiring a plastic surgery on his face, and that left him with very weak eyes.
However, Medusa got leaked to the press, an enormous scandal being raised as to the hundreds of international laws broken by the team. The survivors, less than 10% of the original Medusa team members, were quietly stowed away back into society to keep them from being torn to pieces by the forces of Law and Order. Jim returned to his own home, finding his family deep in debt with the Triads. He negotiated with them, paying off his family's debt with the money earned to him during his long years working for the government, and, as his skill set became clear, h was offered a position in Grandfather Wu's establishment. He agreed, working his way slowly, patiently, and sometimes even viciously up to the top, standing as Vanguard now. His family was killed in retribution for something that he had done, and he was noted for having a very limited emotional response to the news, even though the men reported as to having done it were found, their bodies mutilated horribly.
Recently,however, he finds himself being rather attracted to Wu's 'goddaughter', although, he ignores it as best he can, trying not to look her way when she enters the room, and other such indicators. He shrugs it off, refusing to be drawn into feeling anything, due to the obvious fact that she has seen the nasty shit that he can produce.
His eyes are weak in bright lights, although they can see exceptionally well in the dark. His hearing is slightly impaired, however. The glasses that he wears grow dark in bright light, but go back to regular prescription glasses when he is in dark places.
