Fifty Years of Terry Pratchett

Lu-Tze

Lu-Tze is a senior History Monk, but its unclear what his actual position is at Oi Dong Monastery. He is clearly the most accomplished of the History Monks, but is also known as Sweeper. Because he is a…well, sweeper.

Although he is generally acknowledged to be 800 years old, there are some who claim he is 6000 years old, because for history MONKS time is a resource to manipulate rather than an amber in which they are imprisoned.

Lu-Tze is a little, bald, yellow-toothed man with a wispy beard and a fairly amiable grim as if he is constantly waiting for something amusing to happen.

In his life he has done just about everything, and his past deeds are legend among the History Monks. He is a master of every martial art ever conceived; indeed, he conceived most of them himself.
