Tomi Shishido said his first words when he was two weeks old. He was able to walk at three months old, and could read and write by his first birthday. By the time he had reached the age of four, he had established himself as one of the five greatest painters in Japan. By his sixth birthday, he had composed his first opera and attempted suicide for the second time. Around thirteen, Tomi created a mathematical formula that proved, without a doubt, the existence of God.
When Tomi discovered he could turn people into stone by looking at them, he was dubbed 'the Gorgon' by the Japanese media. For four years, Gorgon ran a death cult called 'The Dawn of the White Light', and subjected Japan to a series of terrorist attacks. At 18 years old, Gorgon killed all of his friends and family and defeated the Hand's guards to prove to the Hand that he was worthy of their membership. He killed himself to fully initiate himself.
