Bio:

The man known as Detective Joel Jackson has led an interesting life. Unfortunately Joel does not remember passed the previous six years of his life. Washing ashore near the Mexican border in Southern California, he had no memory of who he was, or why he was there. His wallet contained $150 a few credit cards and a driver’s licence with his name.
Upon returning to the address on his driver’s licence, he found a small two bedroom apartment, bereft of furniture save for a mattress, a katana, and a set of throwing stars.
Although unable to remember his life, Joel was able to recall skills, could understand Japanese, and intuitively knew martial arts.

Being a pragmatist, he found a job as a janitor at a nearby school to earn some cash. One night he was ambushed by five black-clad ninja warriors. He fought them off with a mop, after driving them away, he noticed one of them had dropped a white lotus flower. He realised that by himself, he would be an easy target to whoever was behind the attack, and so he joined the San Angelisco Police Department. THrough the SAPD network, he learned that the White Lotus is the symbol for an asian gang from Japan who specialise in assassination. He has since embraced the ideals of his job and feels compelled to do the right thing. Oddly enough, he does not feel compelled to investigate his past.

Suggestions for Joel Jackson’s past:
-Ex-CIA operative/Possible Sleeper Agent
-Former Assassin of the White Lotus Clan.
-Ex-special forces soldier given experimental psychedelics.
-Washout from the US Government Psychic Soldier programme: Project Jedi
-Delusional
-All of the above.

The White Lotus Clan could be a front for a CIA Black Ops squad/US Military/drug smugglers, specialist criminals for hire, real ninjas or just completely imaginary.
