His name means “wise warrior.” He is, at least, wise. Yongshi Ming is one of the foremost experts on the Shogunate era alive in Lookshy, surpassing a number of his Dragon-Blooded superiors though he is but a mortal himself. He would be held in higher esteem but for his relative disdain for the Immaculate faith and his refusal to play politics with the rest of the General Staff. Still, his discoveries have returned numerous Artifacts to the coffers of Lookshy and broadened their understanding of the Shogunate Era.
When his daughter chose to follow in his footsteps as an archaeologist, he was overjoyed. He pulled strings to have her assigned to his latest dig in Denandsor. When she Exalted as a Solar, he saw the world opening up before her. He burned much of his remaining political capital to ensure her security from Lookshy, convincing the General Staff that she could best serve as a secret asset to the nation. Now, it is he who follows her on her expeditions, watching with pride as she exceeds him and his achievements almost without effort.
