A cop murdered in Hong Kong by his partner, condemned to haunt the spot of his death seeking vengeance on his murderers (as shown in Issue 3). His presence is seemingly controlled by an extra dimensional device located underground at the site of his murder. Its' origins and abilities are unknown, though The Drummer described it as an information junction box, or a big stack of hard drives. It may be responsible for preventing Shek Chi-Wai from going to a normal afterlife; the device seems rooted to that location, and Shek is the third officer to be murdered there only to return in ghostly form. Ellis has confirmed that the character Shek Chi-Wai borrows in spirit, if you'll pardon the pun,from DC's angel of vengeance, The Spectre (the golden-age, Jim Corrigan incarnation, not Hal Jordan).
