Every culture, every society, has its array of characters & personality types. In the World of Martial Arts, there are many unique characters. Heroes, Villains, Rouges, Monsters, Madmen, Vagabonds, Lay-abouts, Masters, & so many more. One of those types, a type especially popular in the context of Chinese Martial Arts, is known as a You Xia. Typically a lone, wandering hero, these people would right wrongs at their whim, enforcing an unusually individualistic type of justice through overwhelming Martial superiority, as they traveled the land. Here, I present the Virtues & Principles by which many lived their lives.
