Micah is a savage, ruthless, and powerful warrior. He is approximately 6'6", possessing near peak human strength, speed, and endurance. He is also shrewd, able to manipulate the press and others to allow him to get away with his savage behaviour.
In 1775, a party of British explorers went to Africa hoping to start a trading post there. However, Great Britain got involved in the American Revolution at that time and apparently forgot about them. A series of natural disasters cut off their path back to civilization. Having been attacked by neighbouring tribes, animals, etc., they eventually reverted to savagery. They remained in Mount Suruba until being discovered by a party of Belgian geologists in the modern era. They referred to themselves as the Kinjorge, an obvious bastardization of King George.
Six months later, Micah, the Chief of the Kinjorge, and his wives were brought to America under the direction of Professor Horatio Piper, an anthropologist who was studying their behaviour. Piper hired the law offices of Nelson and Murdoch to represent the Kinjorge, who had become a media sensation. Immediately the savage nature of Micah and the Kinjorge drew them into conflict with the modern world.
