Complications

  • Motivation—Responsibility: Zhang trained for decades to attain the knowledge that allowed him to achieve immortality. Having done so, he feels it is his responsibility to use the knowledge he has gained to aid his fellow man.
  • Honor: Zhang, as an ascetic monk, has a personal code of honor, and while he realizes he cannot enforce it on others, he will let them know of his disapproval of their actions should they conflict with his beliefs.
  • Secret: Zhang is dedicated to keeping Alchemy, and his own prowess with it, a secret from the world, deigning only to reveal his elemental magics instead. He fears the chaos that could be unleashed should others learn the secret of immortality.
