Brewmaster Mangix, the Brewmaster
Deep in the Wailing Mountains, in a valley beneath the Ruined City, the ancient Order of the Oyo has for centuries practiced its rites of holy reverie, communing with the spirit realm in grand festivals of drink. Born to a mother's flesh by a Celestial father, the youth known as Mangix was the first to grow up with the talents of both lineages. He trained with the greatest aesthetes of the Order, eventually earning, through diligent drunkenness, the right to challenge for the title of Brewmaster, that appellation most honored among the contemplative malt-brewing sect.

As much drinking competition as mortal combat, Mangix for nine days drank and fought the elder master. For nine nights they stumbled and whirled, chugged and struck, until at last the elder warrior collapsed into a drunken stupor, and a new Brewmaster was named. Now the new, young Brewmaster calls upon the strength of his Oyo forebears to speed his staff. When using magic, it is to his spirit ancestors that he turns. Like all Brewmasters before him, he was sent out from his people with a single mission. He wanders the land, striving toward enlightenment through drink, searching for the answer to the ancient spiritual schism. Hoping to think the single thought that will unite the spirit and physical planes again.

Brewmaster is the progeny of his Celestial father, and mortal mother. Like other Celestials, he has an affinity with the natural elements of wind, fire, and earth. Unlike other Celestials, however, Mangix is the only one attuned to more than one element. Because of this, he is able to split into three separate elemental warriors, although he may not be fully aware of this ability, as he is always inebriated when this split occurs.[1] Mangix prefers alcoholic spirits, and disdains rum.[2] He shares the same ancestors as Storm Spirit minimap icon.png Storm Spirit, Ember Spirit minimap icon.png Ember Spirit, and Earth Spirit minimap icon.png Earth Spirit, and regards Storm Spirit as a cousin.[3][4][5] The Ruined City is of particular importance to Mangix, where he hopes to return to one day, and be buried there.[6]
