Though Fang is of ferali descent, Chang’an took him in with open arms. Though a bit of an oddball, he’s also smart and agile and has the ability to sniff out all kinds of secrets.
Once, by chance, he came to Empress Wu Zetian’s aid against the Sanctifier, but he also saw some things he shouldn’t have. In the face of questioning by the Chang’an judge, Fang was able to use the secret he had chanced upon to save his life. When he got a job as Di Renjie’s assistant, the prospect of a salary made him more than happy to help maintain the peace in Chang’an.
Private Ear, popular by another name, Fang, is a marksman hero in HoK who can deal significant damage if he can land his 1st skill and hit the target continuously. He has mobility and is slow in his kit. A good player can dominate the battle without being targeted in team fights.
