Wuwei Shan is a playable hero in the fighting game Paradigm. He is available as a paid character, and is the 53th character in the roster.
Wuwei Shan (Born in Hong Kong) was a scientist and one of the original discoverers of the Paradigm. The reason why he now looks like a Jiangshi is because his former colleague Yihamah shot him in the chest, then his body was dragged into the graveyard, where he is reborn into a chinese vampire. To avenge his former scientists, he entered the Paradigm to defeat Yihamah.
Wuwei Shan is a green skinny jiangshi wearing a green coat-like robe and green and purple round-top tall rimmed hat. The symbol in chest reads 黃金, in Cantonese means Gold.
