	(Very Common, Strong) 
	Notes:  Jones's characters spend far too much time posing when they should be punching.

	Notes:  Jones's characters keep fighting long after they should back down, and seek high 
	risk jobs for the joy of violence.
5	Rivalry:  Professional (Gunslinger Complex; Rival is As Powerful; Seek to Outdo, 
	Embarrass, or Humiliate Rival; Rival Aware of Rivalry) 
	Notes:  Nathan Jones's characters seem to have the classic need to prove that he's tougher 
	than rival fighters.

Background/History: TK is the huge muscle man that defeats Tony Jaa in their first match up in Tom Yum Goong. We learn nothing of his history, and all we see of his personality is that he's a strutting thug. However, we are treated to the idea of TK as a "Human Elephant," who can only be defeated by cutting his tendons (in game terms, disabling killing attacks).

In real life, Nathan B. Jones is an Australian actor, body builder, ex-strongman competitor, and ex-wrestler. His strongman career was cut short when he suffered a forearm fracture during a wrestling match. He has since made a second career for himself as a villain in Asian martial arts films. He has also appeared in a number of Western films, including Troy.

Personality/Motivation: Jones's characters strut, pose, shout, and take obvious joy in abusing the much shorter and lighter Asian heroes they face. Their showboating inevitably gets them into trouble, as they gloat and delay their finishing moves just a bit too long, giving the Hero a chance to figure out how to defeat them.

I am told that Jones's character in Huo Yuan Jia is a racist and coward, but I have not yet seen that film.

Quote: "Yeah!" "[Insert wrestling trash talk here]"

Powers/Tactics: Jones's characters will often open with a Tough Man Block, sucking up a number of blows from a faster target and performing a PRE attack. As he's almost impossible to hurt without a placed shot or weapons, this strategy is less risky than it seems. He will then try to Stun his foe and finish him with a Grab & Crush or Choke Hold.

Jones's characters are generally almost invulnerable until the Hero finds the key to defeating them, usually with a weapon or through special attacks.

Appearance: 6'11", 360 Pounds, bald as an egg white guy. Bodybuilder/wrestler type. Seems to be having a pretty good time until he's defeated.

Campaign Use: Major combat threat to the Hero, model for a Dark Champions brick.
