Always in search of a good fight, Monkey King travels atop the trees aiming to spring from leafy cover and surprise his enemies. Calling upon an army of monkey soldiers to overwhelm opponents, this agile trickster revels in the chaos of battle, ready to slam his legendary staff down on any hopes of escape.
For 500 years the mountain pressed down upon him, a stonewrought prison summoned by the elder gods to halt his childish rebellion. But, as the stories go, the Monkey King cannot die. So he waited. Until the gods came to offer a chance at absolution, he endured, and accepted their charge to protect a young mortal on an arduous journey as the price of his freedom. Released from confinement, Wukong fulfilled his oaths with honor, and came to sit amongst the gods in good favor. Soon they would find, however, that not all souls warm to divine meditation—the Monkey King craves adventure and glory, and it's time some new stories were told.

The oldest tales say he hatched from a magic stone, bursting one day from a massive boulder that had borne silent witness to the entirety of creation. But only children and fools put stock in such things.
To seek a weapon worthy of his talents, Sun Wukong called upon the King of the Eastern Seas, known hoarder of many great treasures lost to the lands above. He found a gold-banded staff of remarkable dimensions shining in the blackest depths.
