The Ting Tang Too project that has been sitting on the back burner for 4 years has finally returned. Here, I have updated character designs and bios for the Ancient Hunshu characters. These characters are part of an epilogue to the story which occurred 500 years in the past.
~EMPEROR XAIO of KOBAN~
Emperor Xaio was the last to rule of the Koban Dynasty five hundred years ago in Hunshu. He was greedy, egotistical, and neglectful of the well-being of his people. He was extremely envious of his highest royal advisor, Suchow Too of Sakoro. His envy and lust for power eventually brought Xaio to his own demise and loss of his life to the Legendary Storm. Upon his death, the the emperor's violent spirit returned in the form of a demon and took over the Sakoro shrine before Suchow could get to it. From that point on, no one could enter the shrine and come out alive. Hunshuians have been looking for a way to exercise the shrine since....and everyone who has tried met an ill fate.
In order to survive the next Legendary Storm, the shrine must be exercised and Suchow's spirit must return. But only the great Suchow himself in living form had the ability to perform such a task. However; he is dead....or is he?
~LADY HSAIO of KOBAN~
Sister of the Emperor. She is under the complete control of her brother, Xaio. However, she is mostly in disagreement with his intentions and eventually chooses to rebel against him. Upon the pilgrimage of the Emperorís advisors, Hsaio falls in love with her brotherís biggest adversary, Suchow. Although it was attempted to conceal their relationship, the Emperor discovered the truth and declared the execution of Suchow. After Suchow and the Emperorís death, Hsaio reveals she will bear the next heir to the throne....thus the beginning of what became the Too Family Tree.
~THE GREAT SUCHOW TOO of SAKORO~
No one is sure where Suchow attained his extraordinary telekinetic powers. All that is known of his past is of his birth place on the nearby Hunshuian island of Sakoro that no longer exists due to a massive volcanic eruption. The Emperor of Hunshu hired him as his highest royal advisor but eventually lead Suchow into trouble. Becoming secretly involved with the Emperorís sister, Hsaio, promised his execution, but not before he could save Hunshu from itís ultimate demise: the Legendary Storm.
Some Hunshuians today believe the spirit of The Great Suchow still wanders the island waiting for a chance to return to the Sakoro Shrine.
