Background

Sipho Unathi, as a teen, found that he was more powerful and quicker than others. By the time that he was sixteen, he was the best hunter of the tribe, surpassing even the older men who had both strength and skill. He quickly came under the favor of the chief and he relished his role as first hunter. He gained the choicest pieces of meat and the most flavorful fruits, nuts, and tubers.

After a few years of this, he tired of hunting for game animals and was given the task of bringing breakers of the tribal law to justice. His prowess at battle made all the neighboring tribes sue for peace with his tribe and he was the enforcer of all pacts.

The large peaceful region within the Congo jungle did not escape notice. A team of other powerful men and women approached Sipho and he joined them. After all, he could be the leader of a weak pack or the leader of a strong pack. There was not choice. Then, he learned that this team did not operate with a leader. Or more accurately, sometimes one led, sometimes another. More often than not, it was a superhuman known as Eland - until Eland was severely wounded.

After Eland announced his retirement, Sipho, who used the name Congo the Hunter, thought that surely he would be allowed to take the helm of leader. That was not to be the case. Eland's son, known as Kilimanjaro joined, was quickly embraced as leader of the group. Over the next two years, Congo became more frustrated. And that continued to grow until the team decided to become part of Africa Force.

Even though Congo voted against joining up with the Tsholofelo organization, he went along rather than quit. He began to talk to the others, trying to convince them that he would fit in as leader of the new team. But, again Kilimanjaro was chosen instead.

Even before the team got its uniforms, Africa Force One had enemies. There were those that did not want a powerful organized team. And one of them found out that Congo was not happy. Fatwa struck Dar Es Salaam simultaneously with a crisis in Cameroon. Congo took the offer that the Egyptian woman made. And he made prey of two of the most powerful beings in the world.

Who needs a pack to hunt? Not Congo. Not anymore.

Personality

Sipho is a man who is easily slighted and who will take out his aggressions on whomever slights him. It need not be today, but can be several months away. Eventually, he will hunt and vanquish his enemies. He makes a living now as a mercenary, but it is not really money that drives him. He is selective with his contracts and gives huge discounts if the target is someone whom he despises.

Quote

"In this world, there are the hunters and the hunted. I am the hunter."

Powers

Congo is an uberman with superhuman strength, agility, and toughness. He is accomplished at stalking prey and has senses similar to many animals of the jungle. Just before the mission in which he killed Kilimanjaro and Ibex, he purchased cybernetic claws that allow him to climb efficiently or slash at his prey.

Appearance

As a member of Africa Force One, he briefly wore an Africa Force suit, but doesn't any longer. Shortly after he slew Kilimanjaro and Ibex, he threw off his uniform, placed it in a hole and urinated on it before burying it. He has alternated between two costumes since then. The first consists of khaki shorts and a safari shirt with a hat and boots to match. The second is a simple leopardskin loincloth and leather sandals. There really is no reason for him choosing to wear one or the other, though. He also has a pair of short retractable metal claws that he likes to unsheath and sheath, just for effect.
