- Chinese healer and investigator of the Unusual
Sai-fon Richard Shen was born in 1896 to one of the wealthiest families in Hong Kong. For generations the Shen family ran one of the largest import/export businesses of Chinese herbs and spices. The family traces it’s lineage back healers and alchemists who worked for the earliest emperors.
However, as with most families of this time, Richard’s older brother is the heir to the family business. So from an early age Richard was taught by his uncle the ways of the secret family legacy: Chinese medicine, sorcery, and the occult.
After years of training Richard began to adventure with his uncle. They saw many things across China. Eventually his uncle left to find his own way. He traveled with many investigators across China, until meeting the Wardens. Through them he has begun to travel further, using his abilities to assist the cause.
