Description

Name: Lugh Chuluunbold
Scottish/Mongolian Name: Left Hand of Iron Stone
Role: The Foreighner
Age:21
Fighting Style: Sumo/Mongolian Archery


Sumo is a competitive full-contact sport where a wrestler attempts to force another wrestler out of a circular ring or to touch the ground with anything other than the soles of the feet. The sport originated in Japan, the only country where it is practiced professionally. It is generally considered to be a gendai budō (a modern Japanese martial art), though this definition is incorrect as the sport has a history spanning many centuries. Many ancient traditions have been preserved in sumo, and even today the sport includes many ritual elements, such as the use of salt purification, from the days when sumo was used in the Shinto religion. Life as a rikishi is highly regimented, with rules laid down by the Sumo Association. Most sumo wrestlers are required to live in communal "sumo training stables" known in Japanese as heya where all aspects of their daily lives—from meals to their manner of dress—are dictated by strict tradition.n addition to its use as a trial of strength in combat, sumo has also been associated with Shinto ritual, and even certain shrines carry out forms of ritual dance where a human is said to wrestle with a kami (a Shinto divine spirit). It was an important ritual at the imperial court. Representatives of each province were ordered to attend the contest at the court and fight. They were required to pay for their travels themselves. The contest was known as sumai no sechie, or "sumai party." Sumo involves heavy open palm strikes that can be delivered in rabid succession as well as a variety of throws and holds.

Mongolian Archery: Ment for combat on foot or from horseback, Mongolian archery utilizes the The Mongolian draw, or thumb draw, uses only the thumb, the strongest single digit, to grasp the string. Around the back of the thumb, the index and/or middle fingers reinforce the grip.
It gives a narrower grip on the string, as only one digit is used, and this may help to avoid "string pinch" with shorter bows such as the composite bows normally used from horseback. Mongol archers would wear a metal thumb ring to protect the thumb. It may also avoid a problem occasionally faced by archers using the Mediterranean release, when the three fingers do not release at exactly the same time and thus foul the draw. This release is normally used with the arrow on the right side of the bow for a right-handed archer, and on the left side of the bow for a left-handed archer.

Weapon: Mongolian Bow/ нударга уул(Fist of the Mountains)

The Mongolian Bow: Handcrafted and standing almost half his height done in a simple compound shape, the core is wooden, with horn on the belly and sinew on the back, bound together with animal glue, a string bridge - an attachment of horn, leather, and wood used to hold the string a little further apart from the bow's limbs at the base of the end. This attachment aids the archer by increasing the draw weight in the early stages of the draw, thus slightly increasing the total energy stored by the draw and available to the arrow.


нударга уул(Fist of the Mountains): A custom made gauntlet forged out of cold iron as a wedding gift from Lugh's Maternal grandfather and presented to his father on the day of Lugh's parents wedding. It is non remarkable save it is entirely fingerless and due to removable interlocking plates, is possible to be worn on either hand(Lugh usually wears it on his right to compensate for shooting left handed and to balance out his strength being primarily left handed.) however what makes it truly unique are the small metal studs scattered evenly across the palm, each peing no bigger then a pencil eraser, they're purpose is to inflict greater damage when preforming an open palm strike(such as in a sumo thrust) and helping the fingers find purchase to make a tighter fist.

Appearance:Lugh is a giant of a man standing near 8ft and weighing almost 500lbs of muscle and good solid fat, His face looks out of place due to it consisting of mostly Celtic-Caucasian feature but with a neutral Mongolian skin tone of light tan. His eyes are a deep forest green matching the predominant color of his kilt.
His hair is a common jet black and is of about shoulder length when not done in a traditional sumo topknot. His body is heavily scarred due to a life of outdoorsmanship. He has a traditional Scottish wode or facial image painted on his face which he reapplys daily in red paint to honor both of his ancestries.

Personality

Other: Lugh is an accomplished horsemen (though its rare he finds one large enough to bear his weight) and despite his size can run at almost olympic level speeds for short bursts though he is able to keep a light jog for the better part of a day. Lugh speaks fluent English, Mandarin Chinese and a passable amount of Mongolian. (Although the latter two with a heavy accent.)

Personality: Lugh hides an emotional soul underneath a gruff visage. Hes fond of children animals and flowers and has a deep rooted sense of honor and will refuse to hit a woman even in the heat of battle. When comfortable with his companions he becomes a joker often playing small pranks or jokes while indulging his seemingly never ending thirst for alcohol. He has a serious side and after falling in love with the Chinese countryside on his way to Mongolia, Lugh swore to seek out those who wish to harm it and end that wish.

History

History: Lugh's Father was the bodyguard of a Chinese trader sent to England to negotiate business deals, unfortunatly he was left behind in a Scottish port were he eventually settled and met Lugh's Mother. After the birth of they're son Lugh's father began instructing the boy in the arts of Sumo and Mongolian archery, while Lughs maternal family instructed him in horseback riding, smithing and other mundane arts. All in preparation for the day Lugh would migrate back to Mongolia to reclaim his Fathers wealth. When en'route to Mongolia Lugh was traveling through China and became honor bound to do his part to end the war before continuing on his way.
