Okay I know that Jade Empire has no established canon and probably never will but I'm wondering, if it did have a canon what do you think it would be and why? for instance which romance would you say is canon? or would the spirit monk be open palm or closed fist? etc.
My head-canon is an Open Palm and Sagacious Zu's "behind the scene" romance for a female Monk and Silk Fox for a male (though maybe Sky, not sure yet), also Open Palm. Closed Fist is still too evil-stupid in this game, and not that satisfying. Playing it now, and it's a struggle, and the game gilt-trips you too. So, my Male is probably be going end up not defining his Path, as much as I don't like the gray RP.
I'd say that my headcanon companions for the first one would be Zu and Wild Flower, and for the second one would be Zu--> Silk Fox or Sky depending on romance and Hu/Whirlwind depending on the day.
Overall, I headcanon my F!SM to be dead-determined and eager, while the M!SM to be more of an accidental hero forced to do what has to be done.
