Gao grew up in his native China, a crazy punk kid interested in only messing around with sports and the like. His father, Lou Yang was more than a little eccentric and liked going on safariis to Africa, going in the wilds of China, and other places to hunt. Since his mother, Ming Yang, was pretty much the same way, the entire small family went along. An expert hunter, his father made his living doing the big game and making maps for sale. Publishing the maps was easy. At least that was the cover story used by his father.

During the expeditions, Gao was home schooled by his mother as well as his father. During the time, he would hear tales of the Chinese mythological figures. The immortals, the heroes, all of it. His favorite was always the grand marksmanship of Houyi. For some reason, however, his father disappeared on a hunt. Ming and Gao had no idea on where he went, why, or what happened. Instead, they could only get royalty for the maps he had done and continue to update them.

So, Gao's life continued as they settled down in Hong Kong. Venturing out to update the maps every few years, Gao's life was mostly fits of fights, hunting, pranks, and otherwise a wild childhood. His mother couldn't really keep control of him and even his maternal grandparents had no luck either. The same for his aunts and uncles. Gao was quite frankly a trouble maker, but he at least stayed on the right side of the law and often had witnesses to back up his not starting fights.

Then things changed when he reached 18. Considered an adult, he had an odd visit from none other than his father while at a club. Getting into a fight with the man was probably one of the riskiest things that Gao ever did. Especially in the middle of a crowded club. Needless to say, Lou knocked some sense into Gao's head and dragged him outside of the club. There, he explained a few things and shed his mortal guise to reveal himself as Houyi. He gave Gao the two gifts that he could, but found his child to be quite unruly now. Thus, he just gave him the directive to go after the Titanspawn and see what would happen. Basically taking an arrow and loosing it.

Gao, for his part, explored his new abilities with abandon while out updating the maps for a year. Finding a Titanspawn or two, although nothing even remotely "big" so to speak, Gao still realized that these were probably just small fry. With the news of activities going on in New York it seemed a clear path. Not to mention his mother was pressuring Gao to go to college. So, Gao set out to New York and Columbia University. Getting a townhouse was easy and going from there, Gao upped his personal training in martial arts and at a local firing range as practice on his aim. Now he settles into New York as well as hunts Titanspawn when he can. Good thing he has a motorcycle to do so.



Gao has proven himself to be eccentric, a little insane, and thus far an all around "pervert" to the one person that's asked him. He's also rude, crude, and tends to do what he wants, when he wants, and to the underworld with consquences in most cases.


Houyi - Father. Even though Gao decked him when he first saw him again, the two still get along perhaps more than a little.

Gayle - Crazy girl thinks he's a pervert 'cause he took her picture! Eww! Nice chibi griffin, though.
