Dresden Files - London
|Name: Tommy Chang Tsien|
|High Concept: Dragon-Souled Martial Artist|
|Template: Emissary of Power|
|Trouble: Trouble with the Triad
Tommy fell into bad company in his younger days, becoming a “Blue Lantern” (innitiate) of the Sun Yee On, a local Triad. Though he broke with them, he still tussles with their members on a regular basis.
|Background: Chinese Heritage
Tommy spent his formative years in Hong Kong. Since his mother was the house keeper for a wealthy British businessman, he was afforded a comfortable enough childhood, along with his brother and two sisters. This would have ended if they had stayed when the Chinese Government took control of Hong Kong. However, his mother’s patron offered them a new life in a new country, if they would have it. The entire family, including two cousins and Tommy’s grandfather, moved to London.
|Rising Conflict: Don’t Know my Own Strength
After settling in London’s Chinatown, life got a little rougher for the family. Their businessman patron, after losing hold of some of his interests in Hong Kong, wasn’t able to pay as much for housekeeping. But the family got by. Eventually, his family became centers of the community, with his father opening a grocery store, and his grandfather opening a curio shop. As such, this brought them into conflict with the local criminal interests. While stopping his father’s store from being robbed, he puts a up and coming gang member in the hospital with one punch, scaring the hell out of him until his grandfather explains the truth about his heritage.
