60. FU SIN FANG Occultist, Scientist, Mastermind
Pulp magazines of the early 20th-century frequently featured brilliant villains from the exotic Orient who bedeviled heroes with ancient sorcery, advanced science, or a combination of both. This popular sub-genre is the inspiration for Fu Sin Fang. Admittedly, these stories feature a degree of xenophobia and ignorance that render them very Politically Incorrect today, but they have retained much of their interest, due to their high escapist value.
Fu Sin Fang is a mad doctor obsessed with the accumulation of knowledge by any means necessary. There is no black magic ritual too bloody, no surgical experiment too gruesome, to deter him from his quest. The fields of learning which he has mastered have allowed him to unnaturally extend his own lifespan by more than a century, but this is not enough to satisfy him: his obsession drives him to conduct ever more horrific research.
The figure would represent a tall Asian man with long hair and beard, dressed in dark green robes with gold trim and a dragon embroidered on the back. He is holding a bottle in one hand, pouring out a stream of liquid that is turning into an eerie yellow-green cloud at his feet. He holds a bloody scalpel in the other hand.
He is a member of the new Golden Claw cabal, an occult secret society that figures prominently in TerrorAsia, the Oriental-themed set that would follow this set, if I were the HorrorClix lead designer. Sigh...
