    Default What was Central Divinity Wong Chung Yeung really like as an individual?

    Central Divinity Wong Chung Yeung only ever appeared in flashback, having died before the main events of L/ROCH. Therefore, all that we know about Wong Chung Yeung is what his seven disciples, his younger sect brother Chow Bak Tung, and what the Ancient Tomb Sect followers said about him. WCY's Cheun Jen Sect disciples and brother praised him to high heavens as a great, flawless man, while the Ancient Tomb Sect members, based on what they were told by their founder Lam Chiu Ying, had hardly a nice thing to say about him. Both views are rather extreme, and the truth likely lies somewhere in between. What was the personality of Wong Chung Yeung actually like?

    A capable man who was always taking on more than he could cope with. Yang Guo was right, Wang Chongyang was an admirable man and a fool at the same time.

    Following the Tao way diligently. Great planner - able to foresee OYF coming to steal the manual.

    Why couldn't both views be true at once, as they don't really conflict? WCY was a upstanding man when it came to the big picture, but dropped the ball when it came to personal relationships. His behaviour after LCY's death (for which there is physical evidence) shows signs of a large ego and pettiness - in that sense, he was no different from the other greats and LCY.

    WCY is a sore loser. If he is any good he would end up with LCY.
