Richard Dragon grew up poor and neglected in the slums of St. Louis, Missouri. However, a chance meeting with Ben Turner - the martial artist known as "Bronze Tiger", turned Dragon's life around. Under Turner's tutelage, Richard Dragon became a kung-fu fighter in his own right, as well as a trainer of several costumed vigilantes, including Barbara Gordon (Oracle), Vic Sage (The Question), and Helena Bertinelli (Huntress) amongst many others. Unfortunately, Dragon fell under the sway of the notorious Lady Shiva, who drew him into the world of underground fighting competitions. Now Dragon is redeeming his past sins by tracking down the many criminals he encountered while immersed in the deadly world he indulged in.
