Background

Tiger was contacted and recruited by the Chinese government even before the Immortals were reorganised in 1997. He had shown himself to be a dangerous and intelligent circus brat, who had become cruel towards the towns people who came to watch him perform. He would sneak out at night and exact revenge upon their homes and families because he felt that they treated him like a freak.

The government made Shaoqiang see that it was his own family, the circus, who was perpetuating his torturous life. They took him away from the circus and began to train him in the use of his uber abilities, although progress was minimal because he was so unstable. The government brought in a handler, Liang Ah Kum, who achieved immediate effects, pacifying his temper. Shaoqiang was reminded of his childhood, vague memories of a mother who sang to him, but it was only faint and quite fractured.

His training improved and he began to experiment with his malleable body, surprising even his supervisors. When the Immortals were reorganised, the young Shaoqiang was brought in as the new Tiger. He has proven himself a fierce combatant, and at times, and almost untenable member of the team. Only through Ah Kum's influence is he still allowed to exist in public. Many in the government feel he is too much of a liability, while others see his fierceness as an asset to be used against potential enemies.

Personality

Tiger is fierce and unreliable. He is a young man of instincts, and will lash out at enemies rather than talk. He is the most unstable of the Immortals, but is able to control his emotions when he is in the presence of his handler. Although young, Tiger is barely in his twenties, he possesses a coldness that seems to make him more beast than human. It is this bestial nature which defines him. The quieter Tiger, under the influence of Ah Kum, is definitely the artificial Tiger.

Powers

Tiger is a metamorph, able to manipulate his orange skin and body in a variety of forms, from the formation of deadly spines and claws, which were his first method of dealing with those who treated him like a monster; to the ability to expand his mass and grow to over 8m tall. In addition to his ever-changing body, Tiger also possesses enhanced senses and physical abilities.

Appearance

Tiger can change his appearance, but generally looks like an orange-skinned humanoid with black markings which resemble a tiger. He wears the standard Immortals uniform which grows as he grows. Out of uniform he wears casual fashion, but always looks somewhat out of place because of his physical appearance.
