Kwan Yung was short, standing only as high as his son's shoulder.
As a young man he travelled all over Faerûn. He fell in love with an elven ranger and married her against his family's wishes. After his wife was killed by pirates, Kwan Yung travelled around the Sea of Fallen Stars on various missions for his monastery. In 1479 DR he helped his son to recover two rare and dangerous tomes from Caelynna.
