You know, if I were a little less of a good person, I think I could be a pretty jaded, cynical witch. I was born January 15th, 1992 to a pretty traditional Chinese-American family here in New York City. How do the two connect? Well, here's the thing: My biological father is an ancient Chinese god-emperor. My biological mom? Not so much. Apparently she has a little bit of a wild streak in her, otherwise I probably wouldn't have been conceived by her one-night-stand "affair", which was actually her bachelorette party.
Somehow she managed to hide her pregnancy from her fiancee, who works for this local high technology contractor. I think it's pretty cool, he always took me to work and taught me about a lot of the non-classified projects that he worked on over the years. My life to this point has been pretty cool so far, sure, but I'm not particularly popular. Being really smart and otherwise pretty average doesn't really have many upsides socially, even for children of gods.
Now I'm in high school, my last year or so, and my biological dad pops up out of the blue. I guess I always kind of suspected that at least one of my parents wasn't actually my parent, I've always done pretty well in school and, well, I don't have some of the classic Mendelevian traits that my parents display. Thing is I never really gave it much thought. My dad was my dad and he was kinda cool, in a geeky sort of way, plus he knew all sorts of really cool people.
My real dad, Huang Di, is kind of a tool. He's the "Yellow Emperor", which is actually more flattering than it sounds. In Chinese that's actually a really good thing. Unfortunately, he's a priss about rules and rules and stuff, a real rules lawyer if I use the gaming community term. On the other hand, he /IS/ a /GOD/, which is kind of neat I guess. The point remains that he came to Visit one day this fall and, oh, he was a little late. Apparently the gods that are parents of the other folks I'm supposed to be helping to save the world have already Visited their kids.
Yeah, that's right. There's a war for the fate of the world going on, apparently fought between the gods and assorted supposedly mythological creatures and figures, and the gods are using kids as their soldiers. Fantastic, I guess, if your parent happens to be any real use in a fight. Huang Di? Super brilliant and capable of commanding people through sheer force of personality, but he gets into a fight? He's kind of screwed. Fighting isn't his forte and it certainly isn't mine, unless I happen to be playing Street Fighter or D&D, in which case I /ROCK/. My dad though? He can endure some crazy, crazy damage. Not so much for me.
So, yeah. I guess I feel better now that I've vented, but I really need to find these other children of the gods with whom I'm supposed to be fighting the Titans. Oh and I should also go grab some books from the library and figure out what the hell I'm up against here. When in doubt though, I think maybe I can pull a Goku. You know, from Dragon Ball. He's based on Sun Wu Kong, the Handsome Monkey King of Chinese legend. Sun Wu Kong is pretty cool, I met him one time, and he's also a total badass. I think that'll be my tagline, WWSWKD? What Would Sun Wu Kong Do?
Pei-Pei is kind of a nerd. Well, no, she is a nerd, but she's not terribly proud of that fact. For much of her life, Pei-Pei has wished she was different, unique, somehow capable of attracting the attention of her peers so that they would like her. And now her father, Huang Di, has visited her and given her power. Unfortunately for Pei-Pei, her father is kind of a tool and pretty much every bit the nerd that she is.

|Tavio Reyes||Jock 3: Latin Heat||Handsome, out-going, and somehow very present in the moment. Relatively recent transfer student, but in Pei-Pei's social group thanks to Fate.|
|Zack Archer||Jock 2: The BF||Handsome, out-going, and pleasant. In Pei-Pei's circle of friends for a long while, little did either suspect that the other was a Scion.|
