Synthsilk armor (4d armor; unlike most armor, this can be worn under an energy shield. Tsingtao’s synthsilk comes from an old Second Republic automatic factory, and is an unfortunate and shocking color; it is not suitable for formal occasions, but it’s what his family could afford.)
Dueling Shield (5/15 damage resistance. Damage under five points will not activate the shield, but 6-15 points of damage will trigger it and be absorbed. Hits over 15 points of damage, which would be rare, may burn out the shield. The shield can normally abosrb 15 hits before it needs to be recharged. Many dueling shields are very concealable, but Tsingtao’s is a older, bulkier model in the shape of a Jumpgate Cross.)

Changchen is the seventh son of a minor noble and a knight in the service of House Li Halan. Young, idealistic and unready, Changchen is eager to prove himself worthy of his father’s name, and to win a holding for himself.

Changchen pines for the Lady Xiangrun, his elder cousin betrothed to the scion of a rival House.

Changchen sometimes sings while riding or fencing.

“Sidera errantia: quibus procella tenebrarum servata est in æternum.”
