Cao Cao is a recurring antagonist in the Guardian Collective and Justice Horizon series. He is an extremely elderly (over 100 years old) assassin who has extensive training as an acupuncturist, which he uses as his cover vocation.
Not much is known about Cao Cao's past. It is known that he is not the historical Cao Cao, and it is assumed that Cao Cao is not his real name, but instead that he took the historical character's name for his own. He is well over 100 years old and is rumored to have found the secrets behind the human body to prolong his life as well as enhance his natural abilities.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Cao Cao has somehow been able to unlock peak human performance in himself as well as extend his own lifespan. The most popular hypothesis is that he somehow found out how to do so with acupuncture, but he has flat out retorted this with "Acupuncture doesn't work that way."
Cao Cao is proficient at multiple forms of armed and unarmed combat. He is also an expert strategist and has excellent memory. He favors weapons from ancient China, even though many of them have fallen out of use long before even his assumed birth.
Over the decades, Cao Cao has learned to not underestimate his enemies. However, since he has a long track record of victory, he often overestimates his own abilities, and is caught off-guard more times than he is willing to admit.
