Deen Hampatin is a bit of an oddity at CCC. When he is not in class, he is almost always nowhere to be found. Generally, he spends this time in quiet contemplation and meditation near a small brook that winds through a forested area of the CCC grounds, but is far enough from the campus itself to allow him a great degree of privacy. When Deen is spotted among the students and faculty, he generally appears to be deep in thought, which gives him the appearance of being above the hustle and bustle of the bust campus lifestyle.
Deen Hampatin instructs his students with what can only be described as a “deadpan” style of instruction. He almost never gives praise, though he rarely gives exasperated criticism either. Many students have speculated that Deen simply doesn’t care whether or not they pass his class. This is actually very close to the truth.
Deen’s teaching style focuses on extreme mobility and depriving an opponent of his means to fight effectively. Disarming techniques are taught, as well as methods of parrying aside blows. Mostly, however, Deen’s instruction can be simply boiled down to “Move so you don’t get hit.” The only problem with this motto seems to be that Deen sometimes doesn’t really seem to care that many of his students can’t move and dodge half as effectively as he can.
