(Bio by Scott )
Real Name: Sir Edmund Dorrance
Base Of Operations: Gotham City
Weight: 220 IBS.
Edmund Dorrance went from the London slums to a captaincy in the Royal Artillery of the British army by his twenty-fourth birthday. His rise through the ranks was suspect, and charges of blackmail were rumored but never formally made. It was as a soldier of the Queen that he came to Hong Kong, where he used his rank as a means of smuggling illegal goods from Asia to the ports of Europe. He took up residence in Kowloon upon leaving the army and began a ruthless campaign to make himself a major player in the Asian crime world.
King Snake's power lies in his mastery of several lethal martial arts forms and his total disregard for the value of human life. These qualities have earned him the title of "the most dangerous man alive" and allowed him to build a crime organization welded together by fear.
His blindness is an asset rather than a handicap, as he has honed all of his other senses to an uncanny degree. He uses the dark as his weapon. King Snake controls the Ghost Dragons, a powerful street gang made up of Chinese and Indochinese youths.
