----Toddler Ku (5 yrs old):
Raised in an orphanage until he was adopted at age 4. Quiet, with an uncanny ability to blend into the backdrop, he followed his father around quite religiously, and was incredibly obedient.Child Ku (10 yrs old):
Once he starts attending school, he begins to get bullied - both for his small, weaker body frame, and the fact that he's an exploitable rich kid. Not for long, however, as it's around this age that Ku begins to adopt his desire to be stronger mentality - training, fighting and studying with the same ferocity - "Fight hard. Study hard. Study hard to fight hard." Though Ling was knowledgeable about Ku's twist in personality in these years, it is debatable whether Ku's father knew of this change, as he made no effort to change Ku's behavior, despite media leakage and compromising publicity.Teenage Ku (15 yrs old):
An incident lands him in Japan, and he begins to find himself rethinking his values of strength, trust, friendship, and love, thanks to all the friends he meets and makes. He is still actively in pursuit of his desire to become stronger, and still very much enjoys fighting. Adult Ku (25 yrs old):
Choosing to follow a separate path from his father, Ku would have started his own small business a few years out of college, eventually making enough to substantially repay his father for his school fees and then some. His fighting habits have significantly lessened, though he still stays in shape and continues to learn martial arts. For the most part, he becomes a workaholic in this time frame, but he will always make time for his significant other.Middle-aged Ku (50 yrs old):
Would have sustained a permanent limp in a car accident that killed his father. But despite his physical limitations, he's believes he is the strongest he had ever been, due to his experiences that have helped shape him the way he is today. His quest for strength would end with the passing of his father, and he would spend the rest of his years running a casual side business and guest-teaching a few classes, but mostly just devoting his time to his loved ones.
