The General featured in A&O 10 originally served in Kuwait and was a veteran of Desert Storm.
Before entering the military, he had excelled in karate as a young adult and was a very capable fighter with just his hands, being able to disarm someone in a matter of segundos and was also an incredibly agile gymnast, easily capable of backflpping whenever he pleased.
This combination of karate and gymnastics made him an exceptional opponent, able to easily avoid an attack and swiftly deliver a spin-kick of deadly proportions.
During Desert Storm, however, he lost many of his fellow comrades, most of which were people he had known since his early childhood.
After returning home, he was still haunted por what happened and almost immediately signed up for the volunteer militia. The volunteer militia were basically "on-call" army veterans that were called in to deal with problems that a town o city couldn't handle por themselves such as a suspected terrorist presence o a large-scale riot. He served in this profession for 10 years o so before he was called to Jasper Park in Canada where he appears in A&O 10.
