Bender type: Earthbender
Chung Lok Kong has a tall, athletic frame. He has striking physical features such as his white hair and vibrant turquoise eyes that shine in the darkness. Chung downplays his attire and dresses casually, wearing whatever he can find on the streets.
Despite his tough childhood on the street, Chung Lok is still a laid-back and fun-loving person and possesses a good sense of humor. He is also expressive, naive, high-spirited, enthusiastic, and comfortable in his own skin. At the same time, he is not without insecurities, and has sensitivity with his sexuality. He is typically an optimist and enjoys the attention he receives, though he is a novice in the world of dating. Lok affirms that he is strong, fun, and attractive, though readily admits he is not good at reading other people. Lok is also not the best at keeping secrets or connecting with people socially. He is rather naively blunt about sensitive topics although he might not mean to at times.
Before he was born, Chung Lok Kong’s parents were major political leaders in the city of Tain Tang near Republic City. His father was the city’s accountant and his mother was given title of Mayor of Tain Tang and held the position as a Supreme Judge over the city’s Council. The two were ultimately corrupted by greed and built a vast empire of wealth. They worked in harmony with Tain Tang’s crime bosses until the city’s economic collapse. After realizing that the city would no longer be a safe to raise her child, Chung Lok Kong’s mother sent him away to live with her older brother in Republic city when he was only three-years-old. Four months later, mob gang members killed both his parents
Despite Chung Lok Kong’s misfortunes, he continued to live out a comfortable lifestyle. He was completely ignorant of his parent’s demise and thought that his uncle was his father. By the time Lok was seven, his uncle was slowly dying of a terminal illness. On his deathbed, his uncle told Lok the truth about his real parents and how they had both been murdered. Lok was furious and ran away from home just before his uncle died.
Although he knew that both his uncle and his parent’s fortune were in his name, he voluntarily lived on the streets so that he could be nothing like his greedy parents; however, he did make annual donations to orphanages and other charities. He adapted quickly to slum life and meet many people who sheltered him until he could take care of himself. When he turned nine, Chung Lok discovered he was an earthbender, but he wasn’t eager to explore that part of himself. Instead, he learned to steal from others with ease for survival, jump over rooftops and climb buildings to escape, and learned to defend himself with makeshift weapons.
For a time, Chung Lok Kong did join a gang at the age of twelve, but refused to murder anyone. He did however steal valuables and break into mansions and banks. He gave large sums of what he earned to people who lived in the slums. Once the gang leader determined his true identity about his heritage (did a background check), she plotted to capture and torture him. However, Lok learned what she was up to and fled the scene before she could capture him.
Chung Lok Kong continued to hide and live a life of secrecy for four years (sixteen-years-old) and continuously stole from people to survive. When he turned seventeen, he ran into an innocent. A gang who smuggle homeless children disguised themselves as members of a Homeless Outreach Program organization. He witnessed the gang member’s drug a group of innocent homeless children. He followed them to a warehouse where they mustered the kids onto a cargo compartment. Chung Lok Kong ended up freeing the children by running a crane truck into the ship before the cargo compartment with the children was docked onboard.
Chung Lok Kong continued to be a vigilante for the homeless and needy and gave himself the street name King Tang after the city his parent’s founded.
