Bio:
The boy from Taishan, in Guangdong Province, China, never knew his real parents – as a baby he was left in a basket at the house of a poor farmer, Yun Wukong, who along with his wife Lin, raised him as their own child. Sun grew up strong and sturdy, working hard alongside his adopted parents on their farm, but was always shorter than other children his age.

Education was limited for poor villagers like Sun, but he learnt about America and the English language from an American missionary who had travelled to the village, Ashton Purcell.

Sun spent most of his evenings exploring the hills and forest around Taishan. One day in the forest he finds and eventually befriends a mysterious hermit, Guiren, who taught him a unique style of kung fu. The boy quickly becomes adept at his strange martial art.

With his aging parents struggling to make ends meet, Sun decided to leave to for America in the hope to make enough money to support the only family he ever knew. After a month sailing across the Pacific aboard a steamship, Sun arrived in California.

He fell in with a friendly crowd of fellow Chinese immigrants working in gold mines, but making money was difficult. Chinese miners were often subject to robbery and claim-jumping, with no recourse from the law.

After hearing about one particularly brutal robbery, and witnessing the local lawmen neglecting to do anything about it, Sun goes after the robbers himself. He finds the gang and defeats three of the robbers, but is shot by their leader, a man named Samuel McCarthy. As Sun lies bleeding, transformation takes hold. Now in werewolf form, with righteous fury in his claws, Sun savagely strikes down McCarthy. Then, confused and disoriented by his transformation, Sun runs off into the wilderness, his wounds already healing. But McCarthy wasn’t quite dead, but maimed and disfigured. He too escaped, into the mountains. Unbeknownst to Wukong, the unrecognisably scarred McCarthy takes on the name Cyclops, and becomes a servant of the Wyrm.

After many months in the wilderness, Sun is somehow guided to the town where Long Wang resides, where he is taught the ways of Garou. With the help of his new mentor, Wukong gains a few precious insights into his own family past, and of an undead enemy his ancestors had thought defeated, but may be stalking him to this day…

At first daunted by these revelations, Sun soon regains his inner strength, and resolves to seek justice for others, and for himself.
