Monsoon (季節風), the Wind of Southeast Asia, was a member of Desperado Enforcement LLC and one of the Winds of Destruction, alongside Sundowner and Mistral. He was named for the seasonal wind systems that occur in West Africa and Asia-Australia. A survivor of the Khmer Rouge's control over Cambodia, his experiences as a child caused him to grow fatalistic and misanthropic, seeing the world as a place where the weak falling to the strong was inevitable. A former gang member, Monsoon became a cyborg following a shootout that gravely wounded him. He was capable of magnetically dislocating the different parts of his body to attack from a distance and dodge attacks. He wielded dual Sai named "Dystopia".
