Since I had recently had to create a FWTD character, I also decided to take him to 2nd level, just to see what he would be like.
Also, I asked the GM and he was fine with me taking more Disads than the limit, and he was fine with it. Of course, it helps the GM is me...
Also, I'm using a style from the Tibet corebook for him, but that's because it fits better the backstory. He might be even more terrifying, had I used a style that relies less on Intelligence and more on Strength.
As it is, Li can take on any of the best fighters of the big gangs in the Fates Worse Than Death setting. Of course, he was a former hit-man, so that's kinda to be expected.
I think you can actually read his backstory from his list of advantages and disadvantages. He learned Tai Chi in prison where he was because his father was in maximum security (not from the father). He joined the Triad as soon as he went free. He ran away from a marriage with the Boss's daughter, because he realised she would be unfaithful to him and blackmail him into silence. He took away his bank accounts in an off-shore zone and went to Manahattan where some relatives were supposed to be living.
Turns out, they're VR addicts, so they needed help more often than the other way around, but blood is blood is blood. And since he was into Animal Wars since China, he joined the Animalists.
Of course, he also has to constantly evade the law, and had to deal with hunters from his triad (and one of the gangs in the city wouldn't refuse the money for his head, either). But them's the breaks.
