Exalted: Tales of the Nighted City
Night Caste Solar Exaulted
At 5’8" Yingzi Xie (Shadow Scorpion) is the tallest member of the party. He is handsome but not stunning, social but not outgoing, and deadly but not menacing. In short he is the perfect assassin. Shadow Scorpion is equally at home among nobility and street urchins.
Yingzi Xie grew up the middle child child in a family of lesser nobles. His parent’s insensate thirst for power and influence robbed Yingzi and his brothers of their childhoods and perhaps their lives. Yingzi’s older brother was bred and raised to marry into a family well above his social standing. Yingzi in turn was raised to support his brother from the shadows, influencing the proper people and eliminating others.
