“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 a peasant, under the name Qiang, and was a warrior of profession. This made him rather manner less and rough even thoughts he became a king. But his status has given him a new sense of himself, he grew less patient and some things are above his standards to do. He isn’t fast insulted but when angered, he will go berserk. He doesn’t see himself standing above his friends and thus, he treats them as equals to him except that he does stand higher in command. The commoners didn’t have to bow to him or any of that but were required to show immense respect to him. Gangting did saw himself more and more equal to the gods them self. Which was his downfall but restored his mind after being defeated by the god Tudigong and from that point he was buried in stone. Gangting lost most of his arrogance after his downfall but still, some see himself as (a lesser) god. He does still want to reclaim his kingdom and save everyone from demons and other monsters. He did try to retake his kingdom, alone and that was his mistake. He died at steps of his palace, so close to victory. It was Johann learned of his death and found a way to bring him back from Hell. Death had taught Gangting a lesson and it changed him. He knows he is not invincible and needs others to retake his kingdom. He will henceforth make more allies and even joined a guild.
Gangting was from a young age a very capable warrior and commander. Thus, he had not a lot of people who gave him commands, therefore he doesn’t listen to other’s that well except when people give him advise, then he might follow up on it. A second reason for not following others is because he studied under a war god of strategy and tactics. This gave him the feeling that none other on earth would be as a good commander as him.
Gangting has fought many battles, on his own, with a small army fighting skirmishes or with a massive armies’ in epic battles and long sieges. Gangting is large and fast with kicking but he is very cumbersome. So, he won’t always hit his target. He mostly goes on a rampage against the enemy destroying anything in his path if he can hit them. Gangting can get blinded by his berserker rage and then lose the difference between his foes and friends. This can lead to massive loses on his own side.
That doesn’t really sound like the type that can lead an army effectively. But he does. He uses his Earth Demon Sense’s to feel the vibrations in the ground to make a visual sketch of the surrounding from miles of his position. Thus, he is able to know what the best position for his army is and he can feel where the enemy army is and roughly the size of it. This gives him a huge advantage. Of course, he has also studied under the war god of strategy and tactics which has given him the knowledge on of the art of war. Of course, he grew too arrogant to realise that there some who are better as him and that is one of his weaknesses.
