    Gosh, thanks, I'd have never made it across without this map. I sometime get lost going from one small town to another or even in a large box store. I was going from North to South all the way down to the cattle market Was dreading the trip. Now I can relax and and have a go with no sweat.

    Background


    • Real Name: Lu-Tze
    • Alter Ego: The Sweeper
    • Former Aliases: Lousy
    • Marital Status: Single
    • Known Relatives: None
    • Group Affiliation: The Monks of History (History Monks, the Men in Saffron, No Such Monastery)
    • Base Of Operations: Monastery of Oi Dong
    • Height: ? Weight: ?
    • Eyes: ? Hair: Grey


    Powers and Abilities
    A highly skilled martial artist, Lu-Tze rarely uses his abilities. This leads those who spend any time around him to consider he may be a fraud.

    This is not true. He’s the only known master of Déjà Fu, striking faster even than Time can see (Enhanced Initiative, usually with a Surprise attack). His blows leave the victim feeling like they’ve taken these hits before.

    He’s an expert at moving quietly, and at sneaking into places by looking like he belongs there (usually sweeping up). He’s also talented at manipulating people into serving his needs, especially at using someone’s vanity against them.

    Able to manipulate time to a degree without mechanical aid, Lu-Tze uses slicing to cut down on travel times. It stretches time out, allowing him to move faster (in DC Heroes terms, Running). When he does that the world ahead shades towards violet and the world behind the shade of old blood.

    He’s skilled enough to be able to sustain it for days, with breaks to sleep. He can maintain the effect while standing still, or moving slow, (Time Slow). But since he can’t smoke while slicing, he usually only uses it for running.

    Equipment
    He always carries a broom.

    Lu-Tze prefers to avoid using the equipment created by the History Monks’ chief technologist, Qu. In his experience, they generally involve removing a target’s head in some explosive fashion. Yet he has used a spinner on occasion.

    A portable procrastinator, a spinner is a smaller version of the devices with which the Monks manipulate time. It protects them from local effect of time manipulation by others, and allows them to stretch time to allow them a night’s sleep in a few seconds.

    It’s run, unfortunately, by clockwork. The winding mechanism is on the back, where the wearer cannot reach it while wearing it. Furthermore its effect only last while they’re wearing it. As such, it’s best used when the Monks are partnered up.
