Kwan Yung was a Shou monk from the Standing Tree Monastery and the father of Kwan Shang-Li. He was considered to be a great scholar.[1]


Kwan Yung was short, standing only as high as his son's shoulder.[1]


As a young man he traveled 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 traveled around the Sea of Fallen Stars on various missions for his monastery.[1]

In 1479 DR, he helped his son to recover two rare and dangerous tomes from Caelynna.[1]
