Founding member of the African superhero team “The Kingdom” . He was their financial backer, inventor and technical support man who created their costumes, armor, weapons and even their headquarters. When the team chose the lesser of two evils on their finale mission and allowed thousands of people to be killed he vowed revenge in the name of Africa.  Years later he would find a willing soldier in Issac Zavimbe who was living in the jungles of Africa nearly feral. He honed the boys skills and supplied him the tech necessary to hunt down his former teammates and enact revenge. He almost succeeded but when Batwing traced his remote control signal back to his location in Gotham. He confessed everything to Batwing hoping to be granted a warrior’s death, Batwing spared him thanks to Batman and he’s facing extradition back to Africa.
