History: When a government conspiracy plotted a coup, they sought to recruit assassins with the unusual genetic structure that would allow them to undergo the Morituri process which had recently been developed to create supersoldiers during a war with the alien Horde. One of the world's greatest assassins, Tam Van Ok fitted the bill perfectly. Informed that a cure had recently been found for the fatal side effects of the Morituri process, he agreed to take the commission, both for the money and the powers it would provide. He was sent to kill Dr.Tuolema, the scientist who had developed the process, but learned that he had been lied to by his employers, and that the cure might not work. By undergoing the Morituri process, he might have signed his own death sentence. Ghost took revenge, briefly allying with the surviving Morituri soldiers to eliminate his former employers...then he vanished, never to be seen again.
