They came out of nowhere.
A horde of Mongolians leapt through
the air and landed all around the compound: some on the roof and others
inside the actual courtyard. The Chinese workers scurried away in
all directions but were cut off by more of the archers. Lightning
streaked through the sky, crackling in the air. The Minggan killed
everyone in sight: soldier, worker, child. And then they were gone
just as quickly.
When news reached Beijing, the Gang of Five were
informed. They dispatched spies to Mongolia in search of the men
who were responsible for the murders. When no news was
forthcoming, Snake was sent to personally investigate. She
discovered that the horde of ubers were actually a single, troubled man
and that he had the ability to multiply into hundreds of equally berserk
warriors. Snake reported back to the Gang of Five and they came up
with several plans. One of the plans was to capture the 'Minggan'
and to turn his powers into a weapon for China. Another was to
Snake led a team of Rong Yu Jing Wei in Ulan Bator.
They moved in secret to avoid an international scandal, but their
purpose was clear. Snake discovered the Minggan's family and had
them tortured and killed. No information was found, though, and
Snake was forced to move on to family friends. While Snake and her
team pursued answers in the city, Minggan was razing villages in
northern India. News of his appearance reached Snake and she
ordered her team to travel to the Indian border as quickly as possible.
As he retreated from the Assembly, which had eventually forced him away
from his target, Snake and the Rong Yu Jing Wei attacked him. At
Snake's orders, they were merciless. Minggan suffered many
casualties and his bodies lay strewn across the steppes. But no
matter how many they killed, there always seemed to be more of them.
During the battle, Minggan sent one of his 'brothers' to safety, so that
when Snake eventually succeeded in eradicating all of the warriors,
Minggan was still able to survive although Snake and the Chinese
government had assumed he was neutralised.
Minggan discovered his
parents had been murdered and his fury was white-hot. He travelled
towards Beijing: a horde of warriors capable of throwing lightning and
leaping through the air. The Immortals stood between the hordes of
Minggan and the Chinese Parliament. There was a massive battle
which lasted for nearly a full 24 hours, after which Minggan was beaten
senseless and incarcerated at the secretive Camp Zero.
The Chinese scientists attempted to
discover the secret of his duplication, and the hero Pig was able to
locate the specific ubergene responsible. However, before the
scientists could attempt to replicate the gene, Minggan committed
suicide in an electrical explosion.
Years passed and everyone assumed
Minggan had perished, however, in the past few years he has been spotted
in India again. His tactics seem to remain the same. He
attacks outlying settlements which he feels encroach upon the land of
Mongolians. He doesn't seem to accept boundaries, though, and has
been influenced by the legendary exploits of the Khans. He may
even consider the continent of Asia to be the rightful territory of his
Minggan means 'the thousand'. Although no exact number
of duplicates has been counted, it is doubtful he could produce that
number. Eyewitness accounts list the number of Minggan to be in
excess of eighty at one time. Indeed, the battle in Beijing
resulted in the bloody deaths of seventy-five Minggans over the
twenty-four hour period.
