|“||To know that you are superior, in mind, in body, in spirit, that is everything! To know that power is your birthright, to know that untold thousands exist on this world for no reason but to serve you, to channel their power through your empire, be it of land or of business, channeling it upward to fuel you, to fuel your glory!||„|
|~ The Mandarin|
The Mandarin was born the child of Mongolian and British aristocrats, both of whom died shortly after his birth. He was raised by his aunt, who was bitter about not being the inheritor of the family fortune and decided to twist his mind, raising him to be vain and bloodthirsty.
Every bit of wealth he had inherited was squandered training him into a twisted super-soldier. As a result, he was too broke to pay his taxes, resulting in the government foreclosing on his bankrupt estate. Blaming civilization for his downfall rather than his own vanity and shortsightedness, the Mandarin then began a life of wandering and exploring as he sought some new source of wealth and power.
During one of these explorations, he discovered an alien ship containing priceless technological treasures, including ten golden rings. He claimed these rings as his personal weapons and looted the ship's technology. He then conquered the native villages surrounding this alien treasure and exploited them for slave labor. This would become the base of operations for numerous attempts to either conquer the world or plunge it into war and chaos.
