Sun Wukong, also known as the Monkey King, is famed throughout the multiverse as an archetypal adventurer, a troublemaker, and a force for good. Though he is known by many different names across different worlds—including Qitian Dasheng, Seiten Taisei, and Son Goku—his deeds are universally acclaimed, and he is renowned as both a hero and a demigod.
Chaos Born of Order. Sun Wukong was born from a rock on the slopes of Mount Celestia, where he became the leader of a troupe of celestial monkeys and caused much mischief with them. So great was the discord he sewed that the gods themselves took notice, and decided to welcome him into their ranks in order to rein in his chaos.
Journey of Redemption. Eventually, Sun Wukong would be released by a kindly monk, in exchange for helping that monk complete a crucial journey to the west. During this journey the Monkey King protected his new master from countless fiends, becoming an adept demon slayer and earning a reputation as a hero. He also learned a measure of humility and respect, though at his core he remains a boisterous and free-spirited individual.
Purloined Immortality. During his rampage through Mount Celestia, Sun Wukong is said to have stolen and consumed the Peaches of Xi Wangmu, the pills of longevity, and the wine of the Jade Emperor. Any one of these items would be enough to make an ordinary humanoid immortal, and combined they render the Monkey King almost invincible, such that even the gods could not execute him. When the god Laozi locked Sun Wukong in a sacred crucible and tried to distil him into an elixir over 49 days, all this did was give him supernatural vision and a weakness to smoke. When the Monkey King was imprisoned under a mountain, its weight merely restrained him, and he was not actually harmed in any way.
Heavenly Arms and Powers. Sun Wukong wields the Ruyi Jingu Bang, a legendary quarterstaff that can elongate to incredible lengths at his mental command. He wears enchanted boots that allow him to fly by clicking their heels together, which summons a wisp of cloud that he can stand upon and mentally command.
Immortal Nature. Sun Wukong doesn't require air, food, drink, or sleep.
