Hey Space Monkeys!
We came up with this hybrid panda’s backstory, but maybe he inspires something else for you? Share with us how you see this character’s life story in the comments below!
Many religious pilgrims to System 3 used the hybrid descendants of the sacred giant panda to help build and maintain their temples and gardens.
Hsing-Hsing (pronounced shing-shing) just didn’t fit in… More Yin than Yang, more Yang than Yin? Hsing-Hsing wasn’t sure, but he would never find out if he stayed put…
One night, Hsing snuck out of the sacred gardens to wander the planet in search of his destiny, only to be captured by scavengers and sold for scraps at some Corporate recycling center. Lucky for Hsing, a temperamental Scottish pirate with no love for scavengers, and even less for the Corpses and their slaver acolytes, came along and saved Hsing’s hide.
Hsing joined Captain Kerr’s crew and proved to be a pretty good cook, and an even better partier. He was loved by all for his wicked sense of humor, and his ability to keep the peace on a ship of rowdy pirates.
Eventually, Hsing accumulated enough loot to open up a tea shop in the Ganesha underground, specializing in Scottish smoked white tea (the “Best in the Milky Way”) and the hardest rockin’ karaoke in town. If you go round the YinYang Tea House after hours, you can catch Hsing-Hsing belting out his favorite Kiss single: “I was made for loving you.”
So, more Yang than Yin? You’ll have to ask Hsing yourself.
