Campaign of the Month: November 2012
THE EMERALD CITY
HORSE FACE AND OX-HEAD
- Ox Head’s Human Guise (Fan Gang) : Fan is a fanatic. His religious and aggressive zeal fill his every move, word and thought. He is very tall and broad for one of Asian Heritage. He is always prepared to snap into action. Most fear and avoid him instinctively and wisely. He wastes little words and only speaks when he finds it necessary. When he does, more of his zealous dedication become fearsomely appearant. He kneels for all older deities, and ignores any who have not earned his honor, unless instructed to do otherwise. Although he seems to obey mindlessly in his duty, he has a coldly intelligent, calculating glare in his eyes. Fan is a walking tool of annihilation, and only the Underworld may wield him.
ASPECT: Relentless Zeal
ASPECT: I hate Monkeys!!!!!! (if you know the story you will get this one)
- Horse-Face (Jian Ju-long) : Decadent style and dark insight are reflected in every aspect of Jian. This powerful Guardian knows and acts with an almost noble grace. Wearing black suits, and never forgetting his Stallion headed cane, his upright walk and captivating eyes leave his appearance difficult to forget. His aristocratic and noble face are reminders of the ancient power of the Asian mystics.
Speaking with this enigmatic man is no less than feeling the presence of ancient knowledge. Still, Jian will perfectly ignore the unspeakable secrets he must know to direct his full attention to whom he converses with. Eloquent, graceful and attentive to the last detail, he still invokes a feeling of insufficiency and caution, invoking everyone’s survival instincts.
ASPECT: Comprehend what is Incomprehensible
ASPECT: There is always a next time
Ox-Head and Horse-Face are two guardians or types of guardians of the Underworld in Chinese mythology. As indicated by their names, both have the bodies of men, but Ox-Head has the head of an ox while Horse-Face has the face of a horse. They are the first beings a dead soul encounters upon entering the Underworld; in many stories they directly escort the newly dead to the Underworld.
They are the current owners of the The Gate Bar & Grill in PIONEER SQUARE.
