The Spirit of the Monkey King
As the latest Monkey King, Tao is extremely gifted in agility, running at speeds exceeding 80 mph with relative ease and maxing out at 150. He is capable of performing acrobatic feats far exceeding that of any human and most meta humans, doing flips and tricks in midair without a care in the world. As a Monkey King, Tao retains the generations of experience that the past Monkey Kings were willing to pass down to him, making him wise beyond his years, even if he isn't willing to show it. Lastly, Tao is capable of using his tail to hang from most any structure it can wrap around. As such it is strong enough to lift other humans up to 200 lbs, disarm enemies, and even aid him in combat. It's more like his third arm.
Martial Arts Mastery
Tao carries the memories of every monkey king that came before him and while most are hazy, there are a specific set that stand out. Combat. Tao's muscle memory is flawless and as such he is proficient in several different fighting styles, but none as fluid as his preferred monkey style Kung Fu. He also has several generations of experience with his Gunchaku, a bo staff, nunchaku, and firearm combination created by the second Monkey King. As such, he is an expert in the use of all of the weapon's forms, and any normal staff, nunchaku, or firearm.
The second Monkey King spent much of his life learning Alchemy, and as such Tao retains his memories. Alchemy is the magical art of matter conversion, changing something's state of being or its magical properties. Through direct physical contact, Tao can transform the object's size, shape, and magical properties. Alchemy cannot be performed on sentient beings or on other magical items.Skills:
Near Photographic MemoryWeaknesses:
Tao doesn't have some form of Kryptonite, but he does have a very short attention span. If you can't maintain his attention for very long, he will flat out leave the fight. He of course can be bested in combat, but given the experience level he has, this can prove to be difficult. Your best bet is to surprise him and catch him off guard. Or perhaps use his generous nature against him?Equipment:
The fabled weapon of the monkey king of Chinese mythology and a mixture of a firearm and bo staff. These weapons are held together through alchemy to avoid warping the barrel and use advanced technology (for the era) to meld a staff, nunchaku and firearms into one weapon. The resulting weapon is the Ryu-Jingu-Bang, a remarkably sturdy weapon perfect for any aspiring Monkey King. Tao reloads his Ryu-Jingu-Bang using his skill of alchemy, effectively making the weapon have unlimited ammunition. HOWEVER, because of the crude making of the ammunition, they are almost never of any lethal power and are typically only used for long range harassment. If he plans to punish, he gets in close.
