Death was an old companion for him.

He grew up in uncertain and violent times. Even with the return of the British after the Japanese Occupation, a peaceful life was still non-existent in suffering an uprooting from his home to barbed-wire New Village as a government's strategy to contain a Communist insurgency.

Having watched his father's cold-blooded murder as ordered by an over-zealous British army officer, he knew he had to survive in order to seek vengeance. Young as he was, he also knew he couldn't do it all on his own but had to learn from those who were able to teach him.

It was his destiny to meet the sifu - teacher or master - who would initiate him in the deadly craft of a professional assassin. But unlike many others, he wouldn't kill indiscriminately. He killed only those who deserved to die until death came too close to him.
