Zuka is a fighter who has mastered the essence of the Chinese Kung-Fu and can boost his attack damage using the chi. Although he appears a bit chubby, Mobility is his greatest strength since all of Zuka abilities can charge a distance he can shuttle back and forth in battles while blocking damage using his shield. Don’t overlook Zuka’s control abilities once a squishy target is locked down by Zuka he has no hope of escape.


“A true warrior defends the weak and punishes the evil.”

Zuka was born in a beautiful and prosperous village. It was a hive of activity during the day, but quiet and tranquil during the night. It was a place where people were sheltered from the hardship and misery of the world. However, the one thing the inhabitants of this serene place valued above all else was martial arts. Despite being a young cub, Zuka had to study all manner of combat styles and ascend through the grades by passing the examinations set by his teacher.

The young Zuka could not understand why he needed to do this. After all, why should he spend so much time and effort learning martial arts that he would never need to use? Surely it would be better to help work the fields or engage in scholarly pursuits. In response to Zuka’s question, the teacher responded, “It is not enough to simply wish for peace, one must have ability to defend peace!”

Those words left a deep impression on him. When the fallen souls that emerged from the demon abyss spread plague and chaos across the land, the once peaceful village was mercilessly engulfed in the flames of war. In an effort to flee, the young Zuka embarked on a long journey with his family, crossing treacherous mountains as they made their way to legendary Forest of Shadows.

Zuka had heard about the Forest of Shadows in the stories told by the older villagers. Not only was it home to the legendary Elven Queen, Tel’Annas, but there were also countless elemental and orc warriors. They were the Queen’s valiant army, charged with defending the land from evil.

During the journey, Zuka witnessed all manner of depraved acts perpetrated by the fallen souls. The material arts that he had practiced for so many years finally had a use. Wearing armor symbolizing his coming of age, and wielding a staff he made with his own two hands, he fought countless battles against evil and saved those who had suffered at their hands.

Tales of Zuka’s heroic exploits spread far and wide. From the noble and proud Temple of Light, to the Castle of Inception, which has long been suspicious of animal races, all factions publicly commanded Zuka’s heroism. Even Queen Tel’Annas herself prepared a lavish welcome ceremony in his honor. Then, at the invitation of Earth Elemental Lumburr, Zuka formally joined the resistance army, becoming a warrior with a duty to eradicate evil and protect peace.

No matter where Zuka may be, he is an undisputed symbol of peace!
