Kit is a loving father who wants to do everything in his power to provide a better future for his son, and America represents just that. Kit is serious, stoic, strict, desperate and at times somewhat oppressive. He loves his homeland and all it has to offer, but as a lower class man, he is unable to provide the means to raise his child and to provide him with the best future possible. But at the end of the day, he has good intentions in his heart, or at least what he deems to be good. ** ROLE CALLS FOR AN ACTOR THAT IS FLUENT IN CANTONESE, NO EXCEPTIONS AS ROLE WILL BE DONE IN CANTONESE!!!***

He embraces his new home - evident in his eagle tattoo and his combining of English into his native language. He stands as a contrast to the father, with his down to earth attitude and his ability to connect with children. ** ROLE CALLS FOR AN ACTOR THAT IS FLUENT IN CANTONESE, NO EXCEPTIONS AS ROLE WILL BE DONE IN BOTH CANTONESE AND ENGLISH!!!***
