Kindred of the East: Crimson Empires
Mortal, Kang Lau
Kang Lau is a revered blacksmith who lived in his historical home on the outskirts of Lu Yang City. His family was attacked by bakamono from the hills intent on forcing him into making weapons for a war they were predicting. Once rescued, he agreed to finish the contract for weapons and gold retooling.
However, once faced with the true nature of his benefactors, he elected to leave. The horrors of working for monsters appeared to be too much for him.
