Description: He is a tall, burly Asian man in his late 30’s. He wears a long mustache and his face is criss-crossed with scars likely from epic kung fu duels that he has fought and won. He keeps his black hair close cropped which grows irregularity across his heavily scarred scalp.
Little is known about this man before he started the Iron Dragon Railroad which got a late start to the Great Rail Wars. What is know is his drive to create a new China with him as emperor. He is well connected to nearly every organized criminal outfit from Chicago to Lost Angels.
One eccentric reporter has claimed this:
Kang started as an accountant for the Chinese Hip Sing Tong working in the New York office until he embezzled One million Dollars in gold from them. The Tong tracked him down and cut off both his hands in order to get him to tell ware the gold was hidden. As he would not tell they shot him in the heart, but lucky for him he had a condition called dextrocardia, in which his heart was on the right side of the body.
After he recovered he went to medical school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and a medical degree
With the million dollars from the Tong, he purchased rare stamps in order to preserve his money against inflation; he later purchased the island of Crab Key, off the coast of Jamaica, where he re-started a defunct guano business as a cover for his proposed criminal operations. He employs Jamaican and Cuban laborers on good wages for the guano works, brutally supervised by Jamaican “Chigroes” (a portmanteau of ‘Chinese’ + ‘Negroes’, referring to their mixed ancestry). No one who comes to the island is allowed to leave.
