"Knowledge comes by hanging on; wisdom comes through letting go."

One of a handful of survivors of a now-gone history, resurrected in his current body only through a strange technicality during the last Mortal Kombat tournament, in most conventional senses Frei Renard -- now "Rei Hazuki" -- shouldn't even exist. His life since his rebirth has been, and continues to be, a journey to find meaning and purpose in this second chance. A fledgling xian taking his first steps into that sphere of understanding, he has made a deliberate attempt to cast off his old life and embrace the unknowns of this new one. A good-natured and philosophical do-gooder, though eccentric by modern standards. Qigong and chi manipulation come easily to him and form the cornerstone of his personal fighting style, which brings together a patchwork of kung fu styles with manifestations of elemental chi.

Signature Move:Kourengen -- ENERGY
Signature Ability:JUST_DEFENDED -- FORTIFY


[ Relevant OOC Info ]
Frei is a refugee from a previous, alternate timeline where the world ended, something he shares with a handful of other individuals. This means he has knowledge of things that might otherwise not be public, but that knowledge isn't actually about *this* world; it's about the other one, and thus might not be fully accurate here.

[ IC Info ]
The name "Frei Renard" is effectively unknown in the world, among fighters or otherwise. However, after Mortal Kombat, a person named 'Rei Hazuki' suddenly stepped into the public eye. Ostensibly, he is the half-Irish cousin of Hazuki Heavy Industries CEO/heiress Aya Hazuki, more or less ignored by his family because of his foreign ancestry. Because it's a Hazuki Industries-funded project, he serves as the effective chief of operations of the Southtown Young Fighters Initiative, where he can be found on most normal days. Of course, if his life here is anything like his old life, 'normal days' will be few and far between.
