(This is more of how he got his powers, than a actual Origins)

As a young man, Sheng Mathaino worked on a cargo ship. This cargo ship shipped thing from all over the world. From art, literature, cars, sculptures, they shipped it from every continent. One night after dropping off a shipment Sheng checking through the cargo containers and he found one with a small crate in it. The ship, returning home, exploded somewhere over the Pacific Ocean as he investigated the crate. Pieces of the ship as well as cargo containers were flying everywhere. Sheng along with the crate was still in the container as it flowed through the ocean. The crate was thrown against a wall, by the rapid rocking of the container, finally breaking.

As the crate broke apart, a stone box fell out. The box opened, releasing a ray of light, as Sheng fell in a corner. He watched as two huge rays: one blue and green, the other red and yellow, and Flew around the container. They looked clear enough for him to make out one was a dragons and the other was a phoenixes. Glowing their individual colors, they flew around the container, intertwining with one another before stopping. He was frozen in shock and disbelief as these four dragons froze in midair. They turned to him and immediately flew straight into his chest. His body started glowing and he felt himself filling with energy. It was hot and stiff. It was so strong, he couldn’t do anything. Under all the pressure, he passed out.

When he awoken, the container was still, the sound of flowing water was no longer echoing through the container. He still felt hot and light headed but the overall pressure had stopped. As he stood up he noticed the door was open and daylight was shining through. He walked towards the door and swung it open as he stepped out. To his amazement he was on a beach facing an incredible view of a jungle. Trees as tall as two or three story buildings, sat right in front of him. Leaves as health green as a leaf could be while the fresh air blew mist through them. The mist eventually faded away revealing mountains that stretch beyond his view.

Sheng jaw fell in awe while he looked on before stepping forward. He stepped on the stone box which was half buried in the sand. After noticing the box, lying on its side with the lid a few inches from it, he kneeled down to pick up the box. He grabbed the scrolls deep in the box. There were three scrolls inside: 戰士滾動 (Zhànshì gǔndòng: meaning Warriors Scroll) & πολεμιστής κύλισης (polemistí̱s kýlisi̱s: meaning Warriors Scroll). These two scrolls were lying open while the third was still closed. As he kneeled down and lifted the scroll, he opened it.The scroll, old and battered, told about the other two scrolls. It said that the box held the knowledge of all art of war. All of this information was collected by the best of their styles since ham learned the art. One with the western ways and the other with the eastern ways, both held in the form of magical energy.

d^.^b I apologize for if this is a bad undone summary. I'm new to writing long for stories for my characters. I usually just keep them in my head, so yeah......I'm thinking of the rest. d^_^b

Powers & Abilities

The Warrior Scrolls gave him the knowledge of Martial Arts. The energy of the scrolls shot into him immediately giving him the knowledge and power of thousands of years of masters, each great in their style. He knows and understands thousands of fighting styles, combat techniques, and practices. From the many styles of Kung Fu, to the deadliest techniques of Ninjutsu and Krav Maga, thousands and thousands of holds, lock, blocks of Wrestling and Jujitsu, to the lightning fast, ever-moving movements of Tae Kwon Do and Capoeira; He knows them all.

Since the Scroll energy fused itself in him, he is now the embodiment of the Scroll magic. His presence holds the link to the warrior spirit. As well, he is forever linked to the energy and the home of the energy.

Strength:

The scroll energy gives Sheng a very high amount of strength. On his average, he could lift 300-450 lbs. While channeling enough energy, he could lift 500-600 lbs, easily. Using the ancient techniques of Kung Fu gives him the ability to punch/kick through brick (of any average size), crack stone or rock, and break metal. With the training of ancient wrestlers and pankrationist, he could channel enough strength to man-handle fully grown bears, lions, sharks, and other large animals; Or shatter bones as the practitioners of Muay Boran could. The training of Tiger Style Kung Fu, as well as Bare Knuckle Boxing, hardened his hands and fingers to the point of being able to break thick objects with his them.

His strength shows most in the heat of the moment. Being well trained, he knows how to sway momentum in his favor. When momentum is high on his side, he could do much more to very strong/heavy entities. His max, so far, has been a little over half a ton.

Speed and Agility:

The scrolls gave Sheng great speed. Like the ancient Ninjas, who developed extremely high speeding ability, he could run as fast as speeding animals: such as a Horse, Wolf, Felines ect. He can run an average of 20/28mph. However, when sprinting, he can reach 30/40mph. He could also teleport, as the ancient Ninjas did; Either in a puff of misty smoke, or fast enough to look like he fades in thin air.

He could deliver very powerful attacks at speeds that the human eye could barely see. With the training of the Snake style Kung Fu as well as the Mantis Claw Kung Fu, he is able of doing these attacks at lightning speeds. Tae Kwon Do gives him the ability to move on his feet at near unnoticeable speeds. He could deliver dozens of punches and kicks in the matter of a second.

The scrolls give him the techniques of the European Assassins. They studied the way of nature as well as the body to gain full control over their body. Using these techniques, Sheng could control his breathing, body temperature, and how much energy he puts into any move he does. He can generate enough power to leap across large gaps of space, run for great distances, and fight for hours on end without exhausting himself.

Durability:

Chi energy is Sheng's primary source of protecting himself (Defensively). Using the art of Iron Shirk Kung Fu, Sheng can channel inner Chi. The Chi energy can be focused to a certain spot of his body to protect him from many heavy attacks. Having a very muscularly toned body, his strong muscles also soften attacks. The Scroll energy also gives him peak human healing. As well, Un-tensing his body, like that of a Drunken Fist practitioner, helps him take very high levels of pain because of his body being loose enough to absorb the shock.

Senses:

His senses are peak humanly heightened. The most useful of these is his ability to react almost instantly. He could read body movements; noticing the slight twitch of the body, Sheng reacts within small fractions of a second. His hearing is heightened as well; Being able to hear a single sound and immediately sense the exact location of the sound.

Because of heavy training and practice, Sheng’s body is naturally set to react as if it was second nature. Knowing thousands of attacks/moves, he delivers them without giving much thought at all.

Also, through heavy training and practicing, Sheng has a extremely high sense of awareness. He could quickly use his sight, hearing, feeling, and smell to know its full surroundings. With his long amount of wilderness training, he has highly trained tuned his regular senses. His eyes have the ability to catch the slightest movements. From the jerk of the body, to the hurling bullet, his eyes can catch them. Because of his free mind, Sheng's hearing is capable of hearing a whistle load and clear. Like animals, his sense of smell is also heightened. He could smell someone for many many yards away. As well, his sense of feeling is extremely high. He could feel the slightest breeze, pressure, and climate change. Furthermore, all of his senses grow higher as he becomes more in tune with his mind.

Flexibility and Balancing:

Sheng is very good at keeping balance. Holding enough power in his center of gravity, as studied in the art of Drunken Fist, helps him take very powerful blows and maintain balance. Like Crane style Kung Fu or Ninjutsu, he could hold himself on the smallest fragment in his foot. Like Monkey Fist or Capoeira, his upper body is strong enough to balance his center of gravity.

He is also extremely flexible and limber; Because of training in the study of Yoga, as well as other body loosening exercises. Using his limberness, he could catch himself in any position and regain control over his center of gravity.

Weapon Mastery:

Though Sheng avoids using weapons, and would far rather just use his body as his only weapon, he is highly trained in using them. He is a master in using nearly all forms of weapons: swords, knifes, sticks, spears, arrows, clubs, ect. Being at one with any weapon he uses, Sheng can make easily make any weapon an extension of himself. As well, he is an expert marksmen, being able to hit precised shots, from any distance. However, though he might use weapons, he strongly refrain from the use of guns.

The Mystic Powers

As Sheng became an excellent martial artist, the High Monks chose to reveal their secret art of Mystic Fighting to the young man. A style of channeling Chi Energy and Scroll Magic into one’s body, this art is a way of making someone more in tune with the ways of nature.

  • Fire

Also known as the way of Kasai no ken (火災の拳), or Ken o moeru (拳を燃える), this style is the mystic style of fire control. Using the brash and dangerous styles of combat, its practitioners could channel engulfing flames.

  • Water

Also known as the way of Shuǐ quán (水拳), or Shī quántóu (濕拳頭), this style is the mystic style of water control. Using the more fluid and loose styles of fighting, its practitioners could manipulate nearby water, or create water out of their internal Scroll energy. As well, they can channel ice and moister.

  • Lightning

Also known as the way of Kerav̱nó grothiá (κεραυνό γροθιά), this style is the mystic style of lightning and electricity control. Using more strong and quick forms of fighting, its practitioners could channel lightning and electricity. They are able to hone in on electricity through their rapid moves.

  • Wind

Also known as the way of Veter kulak (ветер кулак), this style is the mystic style of wind control. Using the speedy and light styles of conflict, its practitioners could gain control of hefty burst of wind. Through this, they could control smoke, as well.

  • Rock

Also known as the way of Rocs pesnicu (Роцк песницу), this style is the mystic style of rock control. Using very hard and strengthful techniques of battle, its practitioners could control rock and stone based objects. They are also give a light, but firm, strength boost.

‘Polemikí̱ Téchni̱ Wǔshù (or simply known as Martial realm) is a magical land that’s hidden in the mist of the world. Hidden away from the outside world, the land is not bothered by worldly problems like war, global warming, economy, or even time. Filled with strong trees, stretching up as far as the eye can see from ground level, cover the land from coast to coast. The ocean, so blue it’s hard to tell where it ends and the sky begins, shines from the sun/moon shining over it. The land is huge, holding many valleys, rivers, and mountains all over its surface. The mountains covered with mist painted in the background of the land. So tall they block out the sun as it rises, the mountains rival the Himalayas.

Many of the valleys home temples and training grounds. These building are different in appearance depending on the Martial Art style/culture its tribe/clan practices. They’re no actual living people on this island. All of the humans on this island (excluding Sheng) are just the magic of the scrolls representing the different cultures that have been documented in them. From ancient styles like Boxing, Wrestling, Pankration, Wushu to more modern styles like Jeet Kune Do, Zen Do Kai, Krav Maga,..They’re all practiced and lived on Martial realm. They never age or die, or do anything besides imitate what the people of their cultures did at their times. They as well as the world around them are still in the ancient world.

Wushu/Kung Fu is practiced by the Shàolín Monks (少林) in the mountains to the north of the island. Wrestling and Pankration in the central western planes by the Elli̱niká (ελληνικά) people who call that area home. Krav Maga, Muay Thai, Muay Boran by the P̣hās̄ʹā thịy (ภาษาไทย) in central valleys of the southern mountain. To the southeast islands off the coast of Martial realm have their own styles as well. Karate and Jujitsu practiced by the Nihonjin (日本人) of the island of Nihon (日本), and Ninjutsu by the ninjas (忍者); Tae Kwon Do for the Hangug-ui (한국의) people, who on the slightly smaller island Hangug (한국). Deep in the thick swamps to the south, the Brasileiros have Capoeira. And many more different tribes spread all over the land.
