Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Fotu is cheerful, kind, compassionate, peaceful, and outgoing. He has a certain calm and wisdom around him. All of this serenity is a strange contrast to his profession, a man who is frequently confronted with violence. Still, he manages to balance his life in all things, practicing tents of both Buddhism and the Bajoran Prophets.
|Strengths||He is calm and collected in the most stressful of situations. Physically, he is an asset to any security team, being an expert in Wing Chun (open hand Kung-Fu) and Tai Chi Chuan.|
|Weaknessess||His unwillingness to do harm, except in the most necessary of circumstances, has caused him to hesitate on occasion. He is, perhaps, too softly-spoken for security work. Lastly, he has often argued with regards to the Prime Directive, that the concept of suffering is universal and should not be bound by the laws of man.|
|Ambitions||To fight for those who cannot defend themselves. To ease suffering in the world. To remain faithful to the Prophets and the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama. To excel in his position by not harming or causing suffering beyond what is absolutely necessary.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Martial arts, painting, ancient Chinese and Bajoran musical forms, meditation.|
|Languages||Federation Standard (English), Mandarin Chinese, Bajoran, a smattering of south China dialects (Cantonese, Wu, etc.)|
|Personal History||Fotu's father, Zhuang Li Bo, retired from Starfleet despite having a prestigious career under Captain Maxwell of the USS Phoenix, to retire to Ronara Prime to help refugee Bajorans rebuild -- and fall in love with one.
From a young age through his early teenage years, Fotu witnessed horrors not unlike what Bajorans experienced on Bajor during the Occupation. He lost his older brother to a Cardassian raid -- they were searching for Maquis, and Jia and his friends attacked the Cardassians out of hatred.
Fotu entered Starfleet Academy after the events of the Cardassian Demilitarized Zone, the Maquis, and the Dominion nearly destroyed his home. Fotu wanted to emulate the compassionate Starfleet soldiers who helped his people be free of war and suffering.
|Medical Record||Fotu has a clean bill of health, being in peak physical condition. He suffers from aches from broken bones, stab scars, and a phaser wound to his side -- all of which are correctable with modern medicine, but has declined each and every time to have them corrected.
Mentally and emotionally, he comes across as centered and well-grounded. He is sociable and well-liked.
