Background

The Black Tigers were secretly trained members of the Tamil Tigers whose mission was to carry out suicide bombings. It is thought that Karuna Vasanthan was once trained as a Black Tiger and that his suicide mission ended with a successful detonation but not his death. He managed to evade capture and returned to his cadre just prior to an aggressive move by India. Everyone knew that India would move against Sri Lanka, but when it happened, the death toll still took the world by surprise.

When the Assembly invaded Sri Lanka many, many people were killed. It suddenly didn't make much difference whether a person was a Sri Lankan or a Tamil. The Tamil Tigers (officially known as Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam were almost completely wiped out. The remaining members either went underground or fled the country. For several years the Tamil Tigers were thought to be extinct, but in 2006 the White Tiger appeared in the Maldives and killed a small Indian delegation. He declared that the Tamil Tigers were still active and that they were now hunting The Assembly and the Indian oppressors.

He has since been seen in India, Sri Lanka and Europe while the Tamil Tigers have once again become active in Sri Lanka (although with a much less public profile).

 

Personality

The White Tiger exists to destroy India. Whereas he was primarily concerned with liberating Sri Lanka for the Tamil people, he has now realised that such an outcome cannot be achieved while Sri Lanka is considered a protectorate of India. He works with ruthless precision and knows his capabilities. He will not enter into combat with unbeatable odds. He plays safe and deadly. He is determined to wreak havoc on the Assembly and constantly plans to find ways to kill one of their members. He has come close on one occasion when he detonated a large bomb in Pondicherry during a visit from Charm and Zone. Charm was hospitalised by unharmed thanks to her husband's quick thinking (and temporal powers).

Recently he has taken a personal rivalry, bordering on obsession, with the Director.  The two martial artists have clashed many times and the White Tiger has extensive plans to kill the Director in a very public place.  For his part, the Director is not concerned and believes the White Tiger will make a mistake and allow himself to be captured.

The White Tiger has appeared in Europe where he undertakes mercenary work or assassinations in order to raise money for his campaign against India. He has shown a chilling willingness to do other people's dirty work for the right sum of money. He has worked for Dirty Deeds once and has shown some interest in continuing the relationship.

Powers

An accomplished and deadly hand to hand combatant, the White Tiger is a dangerous opponent. His martial arts skills are supported by a high-tech bodysuit and armour which enables him to 'phase' through walls and disappear from sight. The White Tiger Armour was originally developed by Unger Munitions but has had modifications made by Mastermind and Arctic Fox. Both sets of modifications were paid for by White Tiger and there is no lasting friendship or affiliation between him and Mastermind or Arctic Fox.

While he is capable of using many weapons, White Tiger maintains that his martial prowess is enough to slay his enemies. He makes it a point of honour to kill without the need for explosives and weaponry - unless his assignment or plan involves large scale destruction.

 

Appearance

Karuna Vasanthan is an unassuming man in his thirties who appears to be like many other subjugated citizens of Sri Lanka. He is not overly optimistic or excited about anything, but neither does he appear to be completely downtrodden. His eyes betray the death that he has dealt, and people have said that since his first assignment as a Black Tiger he has changed, hardened. He has a trimmed beard and his brown hair is greying slightly.

As the White Tiger he appears sleek and deadly. The armour is thick but malleable. It is white and covers his entire body with a roaring tiger symbol on his shoulders. He wears a bandana which covers his head and shades protect his eyes and his identity.
