Biography[edit | edit source]
A former police officer from the year 2030 who was dismissed due to a very short temper, he practises kenpo karate. He then became a bounty hunter back in his home country Syria, and was in deep pursuit of a mad scientist, who threatened to destroy the human race with a lethal virus. Although he came close to killing the scientist on several occasions, he was only ordered to capture, and bring the scientist to justice.
Finally trapping the scientist in an alley, he attempted to retrieve the virus. They were suddenly hit with a stream of lasers, causing the scientist to drop the vial, containing the virus. It is clear that he was set up and killed by his own government. The last image that Blade saw was the broken vial containing the virus.
Fighting Style[edit | edit source]
Kenpo teaches its disciples how to manoeuvre so that opponents unwittingly place themselves in vulnerable positions. It combines linear and circular moves, using intermittent power as needed. Like water, it flows through major and minor moves with fluid continuity. It is as flexible in thought as well as in action.
Ending[edit | edit source]
When Blade returned, he was able to pull the scientist aside before any serious damage was done. Enraged, Blade knocked out over twenty government agents before confronting the one who betrayed him. At this point, Blade realized that he had accomplished nothing. This anger was the force that led him to the brink of death. This world incident led to a number of government reforms. A world peace council was established with Blade as president. This council went on to bring peace and stability to the whole world.
