Ancestor Xuan Wu

Ancestor of the New Promise Mandarinate


Xuan Wu is the presently ruling Ancestor of the New Promise Mandarinate. He is a formerly high ranking member of the Blood Court of Beijing (within the Quincunx), and a Resplendent Crane.

Cold, just, and logical, Xuan Wu is known as a Confucian scholar and judge, often called upon to settle disputes with a dispassionate eye, and a ruthless hunter of criminals. He has six close supporters and dresses exclusively in exquisitely tailored black.

Although few have seen it in the modern age, he has a quiet reputation for martial arts – that is – they say he’s the best.
