Appearance & PersonalityEdit
Mak Sapyeong is an average-sized man with long flowing white hair and pale reddened eyes. His most defining feature is the red Kabuki-esque mask he wears over his face. He wears a red cloak over his attire.
He appears to be a snide person.
Mak Sapyeong was one of the Four Heavenly Kings of the Heavenly Destruction Sect. At some point after the sect's conquering of the murim, he and the other three betrayed the Heavenly Destroyer but then supposedly died due to in-fighting between them.
He appeared mocking Gwi Yeong after the latter had recalled his recent encounter with the Heavenly Destroyer's disciple. Not entirely believing Gwi Yeong's story, he noted that neither Hwan Sa nor First Brother would believe it either. When Gwi Yeong assured that he had told the truth and that they were even, Mak Sapyeong revealed that he knew of Gwi Yeong's exploits in saving Gang Ryong after the young gosu's titanic battle. With an angered Gwi Yeong trying to attack and then getting emotionally crushed further after seeing the Naeseonhyang destroyed, Mak Sapyeong told him it was inevitable these events would have happened given their relationship. With Gwi Yeong trying once more to attack, Mak Sapyeong's subordinates killed him. He then wondered why Gang Ryong left without doing anything but dismissed the thought as he mused that he would find out soon enough.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
Gu Poison Arts: Sapyeong is an adept user of the Gu, poisonous worms that take control over their host's body. The Gu he uses were weaned on his blood and can only be controlled by him; as such, those implanted with these worms turn into complete puppets who live or die on Sapyeong's order, regardless of their own will. His Gu are even strong enough to control a gosu of Garyeong's mother's level. Despite the advantages of the Gu, Sapyeong still cannot control their self-detonation characteristic. Victims who possess particularly powerful inner ki, such as Garyeong's mother, retain their awareness even after implantation; though they retain their awareness, if they disobey Sapyeong's "order" the Gu worms infecting them with deem that their host is about to die and will self-destruct.
- (To Gwi Yeong) "...your tale was going so well there, Second Brother. But what's with that lame ending? You don't expect me to swallow that, do you?"
- (While watching Jin Garyeong fighting her mother) "This is... almost like watching two dragons wildly fighting each other."
