An Asian man from Ogre Street who joins Robert E. O. Speedwagon's gang at some point. He ambushes Jonathan with Speedwagon and Tattoo during Jonathan's journey to find a cure for his father's illness. Although he is prideful of his oriental techniques, Jonathan quickly defeats him with a backhand punch to the face. Noting his heritage, Jonathan asks if he knows of an oriental shop nearby that sells poisons.[1]

Later, he drives a steam car for Speedwagon to go visit Jonathan in the hospital. Tattoo and another friend of theirs joins along. While walking toward the hospital entrance, Speedwagon falls down because he forgot to take his cane which he needed due to his injuries. Speedwagon yells for the Kempo Master to quickly hand over his cane.[2]
