Here are the profiles for the main characters...I've written more detailed bios myself(or used official bios from other sources)as the ones in the book don't seem to be all that in-depth...

Image
Ryo Hazuki
Birth Date: 29th November, 1968
Age: 18
Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius
Blood Type: O
Gender: Male
Height: 176 cm
Weight: 65 kg
Where: Everywhere

Ryo is the main character and hero of this story. He was born and raised at the Hazuki(Bukan)Dojo in Yokosuka by his father after his mother died of an illness when he was three years old. Although Ine-san, the live-in housekeeper, and Fuku-san, his father's student, also live there, his father Iwao was Ryo's only living relation-until of course, Lan Di murdered him. Ryo began training in the Hazuki Style of jujitsu when he was very young. This training enabled him to grow very strong, both physically and mentally. Although he harbors a strong love and devotion to the martial arts, he hasn't expressed much interest in succeeding his father as master of the Dojo. Ryo is well behaved and knows how to handle himself in a fight. Consequently, he's well known in the neighborhood of Yokosuka. Rather stubborn and competitive to a fault, he tends to act impulsively rather than think through a situation logically. A good example of this is the fact that despite knowing how Nozomi Harasaki feels about him, he hides his feelings and acts indifferently towards her. Ryo's quest to avenge his father's death now brings him to Hong Kong, China. What awaits him there..?


Image
Hong Xiu Ying
Birth Date: 24th March, 1960
Age: 26
Zodiac Sign: Gemini
Blood Type: A
Gender: Female
Height: 168 cm
Weight: 52 kg
Where: Man Mo Temple/Da Yuan Apartments

Xiu Ying is fond of Chinese tradition and culture. She is well versed in Taoism, history and martial arts, specialising in liteary and martial arts. Xiu Ying is a very thoughtful person and always thinks ahead before taking action. She does not speak much, nor does she show much expression, but it seems she hides a great deal of sorrow in her beautiful eyes...

*Xiu Ying lives in Room 207 of the Da Yuan Apartments in the Wise Men’s Qr.


Image
Joy
Birth Date: 16th August, 1968
Age: 18
Zodiac Sign: Leo
Blood Type: B
Gender: Female
Height: 162 cm
Weight: 50 kg
Where: Aberdeen/Wan Chai/Kowloon

Joy loves to ride motorcycles. She is a very spirited woman who speaks her mind, but tends to be misunderstood by everyone because of her bluntness. The real Joy is gentle and honest. Her father runs a big trading company in Hong Kong, who do business with Master Chen(which is how her and Gui Zhang know each other), and Zhu Yuan Da's Five Stars Corp. This is why everyone in Hong Kong is so nice to Joy.


Image
Xun Fang Mei
Birth Date: 3rd March, 1972
Age: 14
Zodiac Sign: Pisces
Blood Type: B
Gender: Female
Height: 156 cm
Weight: 42 kg
Where: Man Mo Temple/Da Yuan Apartments/Lucky Charm Qr

A fourteen year old girl(fifteen if you get to March 3rd, where you can then do the "Fang Mei's Birthday" event),Fang Mei is cheerful and likes to help everyone, and because of this, she is loved by everyone. Fang Mei was adopted by the temple people of Taoism, so she works there to repay their kindess for adopting her. She is respectful of her elders, but will also speak her mind if she sees that something is wrong, although she is neither arrogant nor spiteful. Fang Mei likes to keep herself busy, taking care of people but goes overboard if someone catches her fancy.


Image
Ren Wu Ying
Birth Date: 4th December, 1967
Age: 19
Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius
Blood Type: AB
Gender: Male
Height: 175 cm
Weight: 65 kg
Where: Aberdeen/Kowloon

Ren is the leader of the Heavens, a street gang which has it's own territory in the Beverly Hills Wharf. He is charismatic and both his words and actions lead the way. Ren doesn't trust anyone, and is obsessed with money. He is also quick-witted and good at gambling.


Image
Wong(Ni Xian Weng)
Birth Date: 21st August, 1973
Age: 13
Zodiac Sign: Leo
Blood Type: B
Gender: Male
Height: 150 cm
Weight: 35 kg
Where: Aberdeen/Kowloon

Wong adores Ren as an older brother and admires his masculinity. He has a strong sense of duty even though he is a young boy, and never forgets to return a favour. He is also good with his hands and is particularly good at opening locks. Wong often joins Sam, Larry, and Cool J in mischief and petty crimes around the Pier area, but he is a good boy at heart. His real name is Ni Xian Weng.

*Wong lives on a boat out on the waters of the Beverly Hills Wharf.

The past got us here and leaving it alone was the only way I could be sure we'd never have to live through this nightmare again.

Yeah, Ryo to Wong is just the first page from the book lol. The second page continues the main characters with Zhu and others. Lan Di is in the Chi You Men section(with all the black suited guys) rather than with the other main characters, and Dou Niu and Yuan are in the Yellow Head section. I'm gonna post them in the same order as the book.
If anyone wants their profiles really badly though I guess I can post them early lol.
Expect the rest of the main characters later today ^^

Oh and LanDC, it's gonna be a while yet unfortuantely...probably not until next year :(
