Bloody-Handed Shen

Concept: Itinerant Physician
Caste: Twilight
Supernal Ability: Medicine
Intention: Bloody-Handed Shen was wandering through the frontier treating injuries and illnesses when Nellens Herren's troops drafted the good doctor to patch up injuries sustained during their patrols. Shen quietly performs their duty, but also asks difficult questions about the Realm, religion, and the nature of the world. This is passed off as "idle curiosity," but it vexes true believers such as Kyushin. That said, Shen is careful not to stir up too much trouble. Shen has a secret related to the Realm that could result in some difficulty if it were ever revealed, so they discourage inquiries into their past. Shen is focused on Medicine and uses Craft to compound treatments, but also has some expertise in Lore and Occult. Shen uses Snake Style martial arts and Dodge for personal defense, while relying on Integrity and Socialize for a strong social defense. Presence is used to reflect Shen's bedside manner. Shen is also surprisingly Athletic.
