Like David Zavimbe/Batwing his parents died of AIDS when he was young and he wandered alone from village to village living off scraps. One day he met an old woman who told him he was special like her and taught him how to harness his fear and anger, to own it. Through this method he gained magic abilities which he strengthened by finding the people too afraid to unleash their anger and too guilty when they don’t and how to make their anger his own. Through this he can control the hearts and minds of others [Batwing #15].

With a new lease on life he traveled across Africa creating a cult to keep himself safe and powerful. Along the ay he killed and tortured members of Dawn’s military team this caused her to [Batwing #13]. His cult grew as did his powers while he spread death and violence everywhere. Pursued by Dawn he ran amok of David Zavimbe/Batwing though he managed to seriously wound Dawn in battle [Batwing #14].

David Zavimbe later defeated him after he found a way to sever Lost’s connection to his followers thus severing his power source. Lost was then turned over to the police force [Batwing #15].
