Visitors from the west will be fascinated in visiting Hunan and the Shaolin School, where the ancient traditions are carried on by the monks. Accomodations are available nearby, and training is available to aspirants fromt the West who wish to learn the many Shaolin forms.
Grandmaster Te has heard of the great problems in America with crime and invasions, and he has come to Paragon City in a goodwill tour to promote and demonstrate the Shaolin arts.
The Private Story: The Communist Chinese thought the Shaolin temples and order would be a superb tourist attraction. Unfortunately, they had burned down the temples and killed or exiled most of the monks during the Revolution. The temples have been rebuilt, but there were no Masters of the Forms to populate them.
So they recruited several promising young Buddhists with enthusiasm for Communism and sent them to America for training, including Te. On his arrival in America, Grandmaster Te knew some of the spiritual side of martial arts, but none of the physical forms. He's trying to learn as fast as he can, and hoping no one questions too closely what "Grandmaster" really means.
