Zhu Tong - Background

Background

Zhu Tong is a constable from Yuncheng County, Shandong. He stands at eight chi and four or five cun, and sports a beard a chi and five cun long. His sparkling eyes and his beard make him resemble Guan Yu in appearance, thus earning him the nickname "Lord of the Beautiful Beard". Zhu Tong is known to be gallant and chivalrous, thus he is often held in high regard by the magistrate. Besides, he comes from a rich family but he is generous and always willing to use his wealth to help the less privileged. In his spare time, Zhu Tong befriends other men of virtue and practises martial arts.

Zhu Tong and his colleague Lei Heng maintain a close friendship with Chao Gai. After Chao Gai and his six companions have been revealed to be the ones responsible for robbing a convoy of birthday gifts meant for the Imperial Tutor Cai Jing, the authorities send Zhu Tong and Lei Heng to arrest them. However, Zhu Tong and Lei Heng respect Chao Gai, and are thus unwilling to arrest him and hand him over to the authorities. They work out a plan to help Chao Gai and his friends escape. Shortly after, Song Jiang kills Yan Poxi after she discovered his connections with the outlaws. The magistrate sends Zhu Tong to arrest Song Jiang but once again Zhu Tong and Lei Heng release Song and help him escape. Since then, Zhu Tong's civil career has undertaken a slight deviation as he is inclined to side with the outlaws instead of performing his duties as a law enforcer.

Famous quotes containing the word background:

    ... every experience in life enriches one’s background and should teach valuable lessons.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)

    Silence is the universal refuge, the sequel to all dull discourses and all foolish acts, a balm to our every chagrin, as welcome after satiety as after disappointment; that background which the painter may not daub, be he master or bungler, and which, however awkward a figure we may have made in the foreground, remains ever our inviolable asylum, where no indignity can assail, no personality can disturb us.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In the true sense one’s native land, with its background of tradition, early impressions, reminiscences and other things dear to one, is not enough to make sensitive human beings feel at home.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)
