    3. What's up with Yunsung...
    a. Profile
    Hong Yunsung
    Age: 18
    Birthplace: Chili-san, Lee Dynasty Korea
    Height: 5' 9"
    Weight: 150 lbs.
    Birth Date: April 16
    Blood Type: O
    Weapon: Chinese Sword
    Weapon Name: White Storm
    Discipline: Seung Style Long Sword + Natural Footwork
    Family: Father/Died from illness
            Mother/whereabouts unknown
            Master/Seung Han Myong
    Yunsung was well-known in the dojo for his swordmanship, even by his seniors.
    Hwang Sung Kyung, whom Yunsung had idolized as a child, was no longer his hero,
    but a goal to surpass.  Yunsung wished to challenge Hwang to a deul.
    One day, news reached the Seung Dojo that Hwang was returning from his long 
    journey.  Yunsung saw his oppurtunity to force Hwang to acknoledge his fighting
    skills.  He may even prove to be actually stronger than Hwang.
    Hwang, however, did not take Yunsung's challenge, for he had other priorities
    such as rejoining the military to help defend the country from the impending 
    invasion by Japan.
    Seung Mina, the master's daughter, saw the brooding young man and handed him a
    single-handed sword.  The weapon she handed to Yunsung was a Seung family 
    heirloom.  According to legend, it possessed the ability to reflect the deepest
    thoughts of those who held the blade.
    That night, Yunsung studied the image of himself in the sword and reflected.
    He eventually understood the foolishness of challenging someone for personal
    reason when the country was in such peril.  But what could Yunsung do to make
    Hwang acknoledge him?  He then relized that if he could obtain the Sword of 
    Salvation that Hwang failed to find, Hwang would be forced to recognize
    Yunsung's talents and respect him.  A challenge against Hwang would have to
    Once Yunsung made his decision, he could not stay put for long.  He immediately
    packed his belongings and left the dojo.
    b. Stage
    Imperial Capital Ayuthaya
    The Ayuthaya dynasty witnessed the height of prosperity of the Indonesian 
    Peninsula.  This imperial villa is one of the many used by the dynasty to
    entertain honored guests.
    The beautiful white walls of the villa and the abundant nature that can be seen
    across the river from the garden make visitors feel as though time stands
    Talim came to this place some time after the start of her journey.  Yunsung
    passed through this place on his way to India a few days before she arrived.
    Ayuthaya is the place Talim first came to learn that there were others 
    searching for the evil sword.
    c. Ending
    "I don't care if the sword is evil... I will protect my country with this
    Thus he convinced throughout his battles, but as he reached for Soul Edge, he
    Returning quickly to his home, Yunsung toiled feverishly to protect his
    He no longer needed the Sword of Salvation, for he believed in himself.

    4. Weapons/Costumes
    1. White Storm
    Most familiar and well-balanced weapon for him

    handles are colored gold.
    Background: A sword passed down as a family treasure in the Korean Seung 
    family, famous for its martial arts.  It is said that its blade shows the
    reflection of the deepest parts of the wielder's heart.  After re-examining his
    own heart, Yunsung decided to go out in search of the Soul Edge.  As 
    appropriate for a Seung family treasure, it is an exceedingly well-balanced 
    How to get it: Default weapon

    gold handle.
    Background: Originally created in twelfth century Turkey, it is now widly used

    5. Giant Butcher Knife
    Good offense, but has a short reach

    knife but pretty small compared to Yunsung's other blades.  The knifes handle
    is red, bronze, and it is squared with a small tail on it.

    expressely for soldiers and was used on the battlefield.  It was given the name
    'Giant Butcher Knife' by the soldiers, but ofcourse it was not use for cooking.

    6. Cheng Ying
    Easy to SC, but lacks offense and defense
    Description: The Cheng Ying has a spiky blade but its invisible.  The handle is
    unique likes its blade.  It has three horns that look like a W at the top of 
    the handle.  It has a red and blue middle and a small rigid, gold ball at the 
    Background: One of the three Shang dynasty swords.  It is said the its blade
    can only be seen, barely, at dusk and dawn, and even only if the sword is 
    pointed northward.  The blade's very existence is unstable, making it difficult
    for an enemy to block, but likewise, it is difficult to use it to guard against
    the opponent's attacks as well.
    How to get it:  Chapter 6, 7, and Subchapter 3/2200 Gold
    7. Ramdao
    Long reach and absorbs health, but guard is penetrable

    an eyeball drawn on it.  The silver handle is not in the middle of the blade
    the left.
    Background: A widely used sacrificial sword from Nepal.  It has a 
    characteristic eye-motif decorating at the end of the blade.  It has the power
    to sap the life away from enemies and heal the body of it's wielder.  As a 
    result of its long reach, the shock when absorbing enemies attacks is 
    increased, making it difficult to guard effectively.
    How to get it: Chapter 8, Subchapter 3/3000 Gold
    8. Blue Thunder
    Powerful single strikes, but lacks offense
    Description: It's the US sword!  On its handle are the colors red, white, and
    blue.  Coincidence?  Anyway, the blade is thin and silver.
    Background: A sword that Korean General Lee Sun Shin received in his younger 
    days from his closest friend, Seung Han Myong.  When the Korean national hero,
    Hwang, went out on his second quest for the Sword of Salvation, the admiral

    its weight breaks the opponents stance.
    How to get it: Chapter 8, 9, 10, and Subchapter 3/4000 Gold
    9. Soul Edge (Complete)
    Fearsome demonic weapon said to absorb life
    Description: This Soul Edge looks just like the other ones, green, pointy, and
    Background: An evil blade with a reputation for devouring souls.  This weapon
    is also known to be a shape shifter -- which form it takes depends on its
    owner.  The forms it has taken are legendary, as are the souls of the renowned
    warriors it has consumed.  Only those with great mental discipline can retain
    their will while wielding this weapon.  It is an evil weapon which saps the
    strength of the enemy it wounds and rends the soul of the one who holds it.
    How to get it: Extra Chapter 1/7800 Gold
    10. Han Guang
    Legendary weapon.  Wield it to discover its true power 
    Description: This legendary weapon has a wavy and T shaped handle and an 
    invisible blade.  Why?  Because this thing is huge.  Its true power is being 
    extremely long.
    Background: One of the three Shang dynasty treasure swords.  Its balde has no 
    physical presence, and it is said that those cut by it do not even relize that 
    they have been hit.  It boasts a suprising lightness and long reach, but it
    saps the life of its wielder with every swing.  It is unlikely that any human
    can handle it.
    How to get it: Extra Chapter 2/9800 Gold
    11. Child's Sword
    And what am I suppose to do with this?
    Description: Cool, a plastic sword.  Hey, atleast its not a broom.  It's plain
    and plastic.
    Background: A sword that Seung Mina once gave to Yunsung.  Upon close 
    examination, the words 'For little kids' have been engraved onto an 
    inconspicous place.  In other words, she'd been treating him like a child when
    she gave it to him.  It is completely ineffective as a sword, but perhaps it
    will cause oponents to let down their guard.
    How to get it: Subchapter 2/12500 
    Costume 1: Yunsung has red hair and is wearing a red, white, blue, and yellow
    halter top.  The top has a circle with three little circles in it on it.  His

    5. Tips for fighting with Yunsung
    -      Yunsung's Meteor Throw is a great throw to get ring outs with.  Have 
    your opponents back toward the and of the stage and execute the throw.  It'll
    throw you opponent straight out of the stage.
    -      If your opponent is next to the end of the stage (he/she has his or her 
    side toward the end of the stage) try the Pinwheel Kick throw.  It'll easily 
    throw your opponent out of the ring.  You can also use the Spine Destroyer but
    getting your opponent in the back is tough.
    -      Using Crane and Crane Swoop combos is essential to kicking your 
    opponents crapper!  Doing moves like Rising Phoenix Kick give you an enourmous
    opportunity to juggle your opponent crazy.  And moves like Rage Fire Blade hurt
    your opponent a lot and it gets them on the ground.
    -      When opponents are on the ground, its time to beet the crap out of your
    opponent without breaking a sweat.  Use strong, and low vertical and kicks.
    -      Yunsung has some awesome kicks.  So use them to your advantage.  Double
    Circular Heaven Fangs inflicts almost 100 damage, gets the opponent on the
    ground, and your evading while you attack.  And you can combine kicks with 
    sword attacks like the Warrior Step.  And inflict quick damage with the Double
    Hawk kick.  Without kicks, Yunsung would be an average character.
    -      There are a lot of vertical and horizonta attacks you can use.  There's
    the Opening Void Thrust which doesn't look to comfortable, there's the Jolting
    Blade or you could use a combination of vertical and horizontal attacks and do
    attacks like the Rage Fire Blade or the Willow Dance.
    -      Yunsung's best signature move is definetly Raging Panther.  Two kicks in
    the face and when your opponent thinks your goin to do another kick, you do
    some horizontal attacks and one of them trips your opponent.  It's a high,
    medium and low attack to die for.
    -      Yunsung's best quick moves are Blade Song for its very quick 
    maneuverings and Vipers Illusion for being quick and deadly.
    -      All of Yunsung's powerful moves are good but they require timing.  For
    Fire Storm, you have to be far away from your opponent and have them standing
    still.  The best time to do Loin Crush(Hold) is right after someone gets up.
    While they're getting up, excecute the move.  Roaring Flame is the same as Loin
    Crush(Hold).  Once they get back on their feet, they'll be off their feet.  And
    for Wall Dance(Hold), just make sure your opponent stands still.
