Dokgo Ryong (독고 롱, Dokgo Long), known formerly as the "Heavenly Destroyer" (파괴자국 Pagoejagug), was the former supreme overlord of the chaotic murim and the former leader of the Heavenly Destruction Sect.
Appearance & PersonalityEdit
In his old age Dokgo had a slightly unkempt look about him. He had long wild grey hair, a grey flowing beard with Fu Manchu moustache and long grey eyebrows. His nails were long and uncut and he had a generally absent-minded expression on his face. He wore simple garbs and covered himself with a brown cloak.
Dokgo had gone senile in his old age and the only thing he could focus on was training his disciple to be able to exact revenge on the ones who betrayed him. He often forgot things and would constantly re-tell his story to Gang Ryong.
Dokgo Ryong was once the supreme overlord of the chaotic murim. He and his followers, the Heavenly Destruction Sect, terrorised the entire murim and once ruled much of the land. But, he suddenly disappeared without a trace and the Heavenly Destruction Sect disbanded as a result. What actually happened was that four of his followers betrayed him and attempted to assassinate him. However he survived and found a disciple to inherit his supreme martial arts.
Several other details of Dokgo Ryong's past are revealed in "Wild Dogs"; Sa Paecheon claimed that it was because he crippled Dokgo in the past that his four subordinates turned against him. However, Dokgo denied this when he visited Gang Ryong as a spirit, saying that he had never lost a battle. Gang Ryong also implied that he made an agreement with his master not to kill (he apologised, saying that he would have to kill Sa Paecheon).
He was introduced telling the story of his history and how he was betrayed by four of his followers to Gang Ryong. Gang feigned interest, having heard the story countless times before. Dokgo then asked Gang what he'd do once he'd killed them and, after saying the 'wrong' answer, Gang said he'd rebuild the Heavenly Destruction Sect.
At some point afterwards, Dokgo finally passed away.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
He was once known as the supreme overlord and was referred to as the Heavenly Destroyer, a title which boasted fearsome power. Having created and mastered the twelve Divine Heavenly Destruction Techniques, he was unmatched and it took the efforts of four of his followers trying to assassinate him to take him down.
