The teenaged boy known only as "Mangpong" fell in with the wrong crowds early in life and thus became an asset to the scummy underworlds of Thailand.
"Mangpong" was born with no mouth - no lips, tongue, teeth, or anything that constituted of the area by this name. Mangpong never had a rough life, growing up with the warm support of his mother and friends, but in his teenage years he began to hang with gang members in and around Chiengmai. It was at this point that he discovered his healing powers, and he was kept around as the "medic" for whatever gangs would pay him most. Mangpong held no loyalty; only the baht held his allegiance. Thus, he made enemies easily, betraying his "friends" any time someone else would pay him a higher rate.
In the early 80s, Mangpong found himself traveling the world to rent out his services to the highest bidders.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Mangpong has the ability to heal most non-fatal wounds by touching the affected area. The heavier the damage, the longer he must hold on. His hands glow light blue when this ability is utilized.
Mangpong is capable of healing his own body to the point where he can temporarily cause injured parts of his body to function far beyond normal human capabilities; if he breaks his arm and heals it completely, for example, he will gain super strength in that arm for a brief time. This side-effect does not seem to be applicable when he heals others.
Mangpong possesses all of the downsides one would expect for a person who has no mouth: lack of ability to eat or drink normally, as well as communication issues. He has learned many forms of non-verbal communication but as he is not in the service of any particular group for very long, they normally do not become accustomed to his attempts at communicating.
Mangpong is also very young and unskilled. He has no combat training at all and must rely on others, or on his powers to scrape out of tight spots.
Mangpong is very protective of his mother and will lose his temper if anything ill is said of her.
