He is known as the Mad Monk because he’s a former Taoist priest and he’s crazier than a drunken horny toad. Although he has a rep as a people’s outlaw. He cloaks himself in the mantle of “the people’s bandit,” it’s reasonable to conclude his righteousness leaves something to be desired.
In contrast to the God of Bandits, Zui and his associates are awful quick on the trigger when they go raiding. They gun down guards and marshals who aren’t threatening them, just on general principles. They’re also none too cautious about keeping innocent citizens out of the crossfire.
No one knows much about Zui’s past, except for the oft-repeated story that he was (or is) a Taoist priest who was banished from China by powerful spirits or demons. What I do know is that he’s a savvy bandit leader who really makes life miserable for some of our clients, he’s elusive as all Hell, and he know more than a little kung fu.
