Biography Edit

Background Edit

At some point, after gaining his abilities from his father, Yuen hired Kuo to work for him as a hitman.

Battle with The Darkness Edit

Kuo first appears, when Cheng return from New York, bearing a message to Yuen from Jackie Estacado. He then kills him using his supernatural powers.

After Jackie comes to Hong Kong, Kuo captures him and brings him to Yuen. Yuen gives Jackie an offer, give the control of Franchetti family and all his holdings to him and Yuen will leave him alive and while also giving Jackie a job in the organization. Jackie turns down the offer and lets out the darklings, but Yuen opens curtains, revealing that its morning. Kuo then attacks Jackie by summoning spectral dragons. Jackie powerless, jumps out through the window.

As Jackie falls to the ground, darklings appear and carry him away to safety. Yuen sends his men with Kuo to find and execute Jackie before nightfall. Kuo later encounters Jackie in a gunfight at a market. He summons his spectral dragons and sets loose them on Jackie. Jackie manages to reach a dark alleyway and escapes.

Fate Edit

After returning to mansion, Kuo informs Yuen that over a hundred men have come to defend him in his secret mansion. Yuen is annoyed by the fact that Kuo failed to kill Jackie until nightfall. Kuo apologises and goes to inspect the grounds.

Jackie appears and begins his attack. His darklings break open the gates and attack the guards inside. As Jackie enters through the gates, he's confronted by Kuo and his spectral dragons. The two engage in battle and Jackie manages to overtake Kuo and grab him by the throat. Kuo then releases a small dragon, which cuts through his arm. Jackie falls over and Kuo aims his gun at him, but at the last second gets the upper hand and kills Kuo.

Kuo is highly devoted to Yuen, showing a lot of respect to him. When Jackie escaped, he took the blame upon himself for letting him get away. He's ruthless to his enemies, saying that he will enjoy breaking Jackie.
