Name: Gangting of Duoshang
Special Characteristics: Gangting is a giant of a man, his muscled arms as thick as logs and his body is littered with scars from hundreds of battles.
“A friend of mine, Gangting an Earth Demon Slayer, with each step of his, the very ground below would tremble at his sheer might.” ~Johann on Gangting and Slayers.
Gangting was born as farmer and warrior, bearing the name Qiang. This history of his made him a peculiar king, as he was everything except pampered and mannered at all. He was a warrior through and through, and any vanity he has come from his achievements, not by his ancestors. He treats his friends as equals, without regard to rank or social status. The giant hates demons and is embroiled into a life-long war against them, guided by Tudigong; the chief-god among the pantheon of gods he worships. Gangting is a religious fanatic, who believes that he is the champion of Tudigong upon earth. It was Tudigong who gifted Gangting his powers and by the mandate of Tudigong he ascertained his kingdom and began cleansing the world of demons.
ΩStubborn – Gangting is as stubborn as a mountain, you won’t change his mind easily and requires as much dedication as to climb the zenith of a mountain.
ΩHotblooded – Gangting is quick to anger, erupting like a volcano.
ΩWarrior – Gangting is born in a society where he was raised as a warrior, he has not the discipline of a soldier and does not always listen to orders but charges headlong into the fray.
ΩCommander – A thousand battles have been won under Gangting’s command, he is seasoned by his experience and knows how to win wars. Although he is a commander, he is certainly not the greatest that has ever lived as he mostly won the wars through his magic and the blessing of Tudigong. He nearly commands as he fights himself, simple intimidate the enemy and smash their resistance to smithereens.
ΩRoyalty – Gangting is a king, although exiled, he still expects certain respect. However, he is not fond of all the fancy etiquettes the monarchs of the current era seem to insist on.
ΩStone – Gangting has a love for stone and minerals, perhaps something to do with his earth slayer magic.
ΩEating – Gangting is quite glutenous, he consumes tonnes of food and drinks.
ΩFighting – There is nothing better in the world than to feel the high of adrenaline kick in when fighting; Gangting is an innate warrior.
ΩDemons – A dislike for demons is put to mildly, every fibre within Gangting hates and despises these wretched beings.
ΩWater – Gangting doesn’t like water.
ΩVegetables – Prey animals eat green stuff, predators eat meat; that says enough.
ΩLiberation of Duoshang – To reconquer the ancient city of Duoshang, the capital of Gangting’s fast empire, is Gangting’s goal. It is not only his wish but also Tudigong’s wish, to see Duoshang and its empire flourish once more.
ΩTo serve Tudigong – Gangting is a fanatic follower of Tudigong, particularly after his transgression which he seeks to rectify by acting out Tudigong’s will.
ΩRegaining strength – Gangting has been severely weakened by his entombment for thousands of years, after his war against Tudigong, and his failed crusade to reconquer Duoshang; he seeks to regain his former strength, or to surpass it.
ΩWraith of Tudigong – Gangting has once, in a state of madness, waged a war against Tudigong and was punished for his actions; never again.
ΩDemonic desolation – It is Tudigong’s and Gangting’s shared fear that demons will one day bring about a desolation that will wipe out much of life, all that remains will suffer slavery under the demonic throngs from pits of Hell.
ΩAway from earth – Gangting has a fear of travelling by boat, land vehicle or anything with flight. He cannot use his magic far away from soil and rock and he will get sick when travelling by those means. Only his trusty chariot and his horse are valid means of transportation, besides his own two legs.
