    Yasha's Ire: Between the drifts of snow, a shadowy figure can be seen, slowly coming closer... whenever you spend more than 30 minutes in a snowy environment a cold chill will run down your spine and looking around you'll eventually notice a seven foot cloaked and hooded figure following you around, saying 100 to 200 feet back at all times, hiding behind trees or other obstacles, or blending into crowds whenever possible, visible to you or anyone else. -It will never follow you inside a building. -If you or anyone else approaches it with the intent of inspecting it, it'll melt into a black mist whenever that person gets within 30 feet of it, to reappear 100 to 200 feet away minutes later. -It'll stop following you after you get out of the snowy climate.

    Backstory

    Somm was born in Southern China sometime during the late 90s, he was born to a family of strict and staunch CCP-backed modernists who believed in a "Modern Spirituality": they were exorcists and priests. They believed that the old way was wrong, and that the new state-funded way was the right path to go: which is why when Somm was born and discovered to be a latent vessel / "Tangki" for the spirit king Zhong Kui they were outraged. The CCP ordered the family to either kill the child, as he was already against the one-child policy, or give them up to the state as a weapon.

    Somm was killed, however, he wasn't actaully. The Triad simply smuggled him out of the country and to the United States where he was raised right. Somm was raised at a local temple / monastery and instructed on how to do the things, how to connect with his background, etc etc. It was there that Somm learned most of what he knew, and where Somm began to realize his importance to the community. Somm soon joined the Triad in his later teenage years, as he came unto an artifact he dubbed "The Mandarin" (A ghost gun), and soon discovered some other latent abilities of his that served the community well.

    Triad

    Somm's a somewhat-senior member of the Chinatown Triad in San Francisco, he does a lot of work around the community mediating and connecting people back to their ancestors. A lot of what he does is commune with the dead-homies, tie up generational griefs and traumas, and figure out who-killed-whos and where to organize hits and drives.

    Somm moonlights at a Noodleshop in the Chinatown's downtown, where he works as a server during most of the week. When hes not working as a server, he's partaking in triad activities including staking, organizing hits, information-gathering, and other wholesome OPP activities. The owner of the Noodleshop is also a senior Triad member.
