Background/History:A Triad boss from Kowloon, Big Brother Tsien has taken a step up in the world. It seems he’s become an underling of those eunuch sorcerers from AD 69 China— the Eaters of the Lotus—and they’ve given him a great gift. Tsien can unleash his “inner demon” and transform from his regular self into a 3 meter-tall walking nightmare who’s strong enough to dismember a man in his bare hands and has breath strong enough to crack stone. he know uses his new form to get back at those who’ve wronged him (or might wrong him, or may have once thought about wronging him, or...) and intends to set him self up in style once the Lotus fully controls the modern world.
Personality/Motivation:Tsien is a little man wanting to be a big man. He wants power and lots of it. While he has gained some measure of power working for the Lotus he’s not a big fan of rules and wants more for himself. On the other hand, he’s not idiot and respects the magical power the eunuchs control and has no desire to be made an example of. So, he takes out his frustrations on underlines and enemies.
Quote: “Demons are strong... but if you don’t resist your demons, they make you grow stronger. They give you the power you need to make suckers pay, and pay hard.”
Powers/Tactics: While capable enough in human form, Tsien likes the strength and power of his demonic form. He likes to display his supernatural strength in showy ways and will often use such as a display as a Presence Attack in order to intimidate enemies. In combat he tends to be direct and brutal and likes to Grab foes so he can use either his Crush or Rancid Breathe to put them down for good (the latter also makes another nice Presence Attack).
Appearance: In human form, Big Brother Tsien dresses and acts much like any successful Triad boss. As a demon, he stands over 3m high, with mottled purple scaly skin.
Designer's Notes: Big Brother Tsien is from the Feng Shui supplement Back For Seconds. He could be used in any number of settings (just edit him appropriately), ranging from Fantasy, to Ninja, to Urban Fantasy Hero. The Eaters of the Lotus can become any group of evil magicians you might have running around in your campaign.
