In 1966 during the Vietnam War, an American recon patrol in Cambodia stumbled upon the ancient, hidden temple of a cult known as the Dragon's Breadth, which had remained hidden for centuries. It had been built upon a well-spring of raw, primal energy called the "Well of All Things". The inhabitants decided to breed a superior race that would one day unite with the ways of the west. They believed that this union would produce children capable of harnessing the power of the Well. The members of the recon patrol were to be the fathers of these children, one of these men was Andrew Chord; the man who would become Midnight Fire's father.
Midnight's Fire and his sister Silhouette were the only children of Andrew Chord, former guardian of Dwayne Taylor and his wife Miyami (daughter of Tai). Silhouette and Midnight's Fire were operating as independent vigilantes in the streets of New York City when they met Dwayne, before he became the vigilante Night Thrasher. The three began an organized effort to take down various New York City street gangs. Their partnership ended when Silhouette was shot and paralyzed from the legs down in a sting gone bad. Midnight's Fire blamed Dwayne and became a cop killer and a drug lord in order to lure Dwayne into a physical confrontation he could not possibly win.
