"The White and Black Guards had their souls imbued into an umbrella where they are bound together, forever."
|Alias:||Black and White|
Background[edit | edit source]
Xie Bi'an and Fan Wujiu (the White and Black Guards) have always been like brothers. As they traveled to Nantai Bridge one day, they noticed it was going to rain. Xie told Fan to wait under the bridge while he returned home to get an umbrella. After Xie left, the rain began to pour and the river rose, but Fan, reluctant to break his promise, stayed under the bridge. Shortly after, Xie returned with the umbrella only to find that the bridge was now submerged and Fan nowhere to be seen... He had drowned.
Xie was so grieved that he had no choice but to live without Fan. No matter whether it was rain or shine, he carried the black umbrella during the day and wore white mourning clothes. He eventually committed suicide by hanging himself under the Nantai Bridge and left the black umbrella where Fan had stayed.
The umbrella was found by a merchant and placed as a hallway centerpiece in his home. Since then, his family has had strange things happen to them. The black umbrella in the room was often unsupervised. In the middle of the night, the sounds of men sighing fill the hall. Everyone said that White Guard's soul was in the umbrella. Merchants invited a Taoist to get rid of the umbrella to lift the spell on the town. Since then, the house has been calm and quiet. Soon after, the merchants went out, but on the way, they found that the country was in chaos, and that the umbrella was missing.
External Traits[edit | edit source]
The White and Black Guards had their souls imbued into an umbrella and their souls can be switched by using Summon. The White Guard excels at patrol and pursuit and moves swiftly but has slow stun recovery and attack speed; the Black Guard excels at melee combat and has fast stun recovery and attack speed, but moves slowly.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Wu Chang sacrifices proficiency in either melee or movement to increase the proficiency in one of the two. Their three unique Abilities are:
|Infinite Nirvana||Throws the Umbrella at the target location, where it will stay for 5 seconds. Outlines of Survivors in the area covered by the Umbrella will be shown, with their movement speed and vaulting speed slightly decreased, and other interaction speeds significantly decreased. Outlines of these Survivors will still be shown for 5 seconds after they move outside the area. For the duration where the Umbrella is active, Wu Chang can choose to teleport to where the Umbrella is and switch to Dual Soul mode, or retrieve the Umbrella to recover skill countdown. Without the Umbrella, Wu Chang's movement speed and window vaulting speed is increased. The Umbrella will return to Wu Chang when the 5 seconds are up.|
Use the skill to switch into Dual Soul mode, or hold down the skill button to charge up and toss the soul umbrella forward and then switch to Dual Soul mode and teleport to where the umbrella lands. The longer you charge the skill the further you can toss the umbrella.
|Siphon Soul & Wavering Soul||The White Guard's body moves with ease, and when it fully enters the spiritual realm it won't be able to interact with anything for 5 seconds. However, its movement speed is greatly increased and it will siphon the souls of nearby Survivors. If it manages to fully siphon a Survivor's soul, their soul will be lost.
Bedazzled and unable to interact with the environment.
When the Black Guard rings thr bell and casts Wavering Soul, all Survivors that hear the ringing have to steel their resolve and calibrate with precision. Should they fail the calibration, the will become horrified for 60 seconds; if they fail another calibration during that time, their soul will waver.
Movement directions will be reversed.
|Summon - Enhanced||
Reduces the time it takes to switch souls in Dual Soul mode and you will immediately perform a powerful Siphon Soul or Wavering Soul upon switching.
