Tae'guk is one of the playable Hypers in Hyper Universe.

Introduction[edit | edit source]

This hyper has impressive disruptive skills dependent on linking his skills together. He is a major threat in every battle thanks to ignoring enemy obstacles and doing huge damage through skill chains. However, his skills depend on a limited resource that's hard to build and must be maintained to remain effective.

Story[edit | edit source]

The ancient master was unmatched in the martial arts. He was courted by kings and warlords, but he desired neither money nor honor. People still suspected that he harbored desires and were fearful of his great power, so they tried to kill him. Though he survived the attacks, the master's son and wife were killed. This enraged him, and he took terrible revenge on every single person connected to the plot. Afterwards he took to the mountains, living like a hermit and refusing to come down for anything.

One day when he was hiking through the mountains, he found two babies in a tiger cave. They were twins, both healthy and smiling even as the lions toyed with them. He took them in and trained them in his ways. As they grew they began to grow apart in personality. Tae'guk was always selfish and greedy, and Tae'bak was kind and thoughtful. Tae'guk considered Tae'bak his rival, which made his greed and jealousy all the worse. Tae'guk always wanted more than Tae'bak, taking his things even when he didn't need them. Tae'bak, on the other hand, was so kind-hearted that he gave what he had to Tae'guk, and would pretend to lose when they sparred to make Tae'guk feel better. The grand master was deeply troubled by this.

"One is too greedy, and the other too selfless. If only I could make one child from the two."

The master took extra care around Tae'bak, and that only made Tae'guk resent them even more. Tae'guk also didn't believe that the master found him and his brother in a tiger cave. A guest had once stayed with them, and told Tae'guk that one of them was the grandson of the master. Tae'guk didn't think that could be him, since the master favored Tae'bak so much more. Even though Tae'guk was growing more talented he still went to Tae'bak for help, because in his heart he was lazy and wanted his hard-working brother to solve his problems.

When the master made Tae'bak his successor, Tae'guk became enraged. Effort aside, Tae'guk was more talented than Tae'bak and could beat him regularly, which made the decision all the more baffling. He felt betrayed, and fully grasped at the idea that Tae'bak was secretly the master's grandson. And so he acted, poisoning both of them and taking the secrets of their art for himself.

The secret that will never be revealed is that Tae'guk was the master's grandson. His greater talent came from that fact, and the master chose Tae'bak over Tae'guk to free his own kin from the burdens of carrying on their art. However, it is doubtful that Tae'guk would even regret his actions if he knew the truth. He was born greedy, and his actions have always been entirely self-serving. He's moved on to Hyper Universe where he can do as he pleases and take what he wants, as long as he bears the power to do so.
