Background/History: We know almost nothing about the origins of Park Chang-Yi, other than he’s from Korea and has been in Manchuria for some time. At some point in his past he ran afoul of Yoon Tae-Goo (a.k.a. the “Finger Chopper”) and lost the forefinger of his right hand. Later, he was found stumbling around drunk and brought into the care of a Korean business man, who sobered him up and made Chang-Yi into the most feared assassin in Manchuria.
Personality/Motivation: Chang-Yi is, in a word, ruthless. He kills without a second thought, and guns down a number of people for crime of simply being in his way. He can also be cruel, as is scene to toy with an opponent, dodging their strikes while slowly slashing them to bits with his knife. While he demands loyalty from his men, he shows little care for them, and goes through followers at an alarming rate. In addition, he can be quite single-minded once he has his eyes set on a goal, and will pursue his quarry across all of Manchuria if needed to get at what he wants.
By-the-way—make no mistake, Chang-Yi hates Yoon Tae-Goo. Not only did Tae-Goo chop off one of Chang-Yi’s fingers, he also humiliated Chang-Yi. Chang-Yi has looked for a rematch ever since and wants nothing more than to see Tae-Goo dead. Even mention Tae-Goo’s name is enough to set Chang-Yi off.
Quote: “Does it hurt?”
"Funny ain’t it? People must know they’ll all die some day.But they live as if they never will."
Powers/Tactics: Skilled with both gun and knife, Chang-Yi is quite lethal in a fight. In battle he’ll use whatever seems best, and switches freely between a rifle, pistol, and blade as needed. He’s good enough with a gun to drop a half-dozen men with a rapid burst of shots, while his knife-throwing skills allow him to pin a centipede to a wall (he also pounds the knife home with a few well-paced pistol shots.) In a knife flight he seems unstoppable, and as mentioned, cuts Yoon Tae-Goo’s friend Man-Gil almost to pieces, laughing all the time.
Appearance: Tall, with nary any body fat, Chang-Yi’s once-handsome face is marred with several scars. He wears his hair down over his face, usually covering one eye, has rings in one ear, and is almost never seen without his gloves on (as he’s missing the right index finger.) He normally dresses in a black suit with a white shirt.
Designer’s Notes: Park Chang-Yi, played by Byung-hun Lee, is the “bad” in Jee-woon Kim’s “kimchee western” film The Good, the Bad, the Weird. An obvious take on The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, TGTBTW is a pulp-era romp though the deserts of northern Manchuria. This character sheet is (IMO) a little sparse, but only because the characterization in the film is a little sparse. Game Masters wishing to use the Bad in their games can easily expand on his martial arts and gun skills, as well as his list of Skills (Lockpicking, for example.)
