By her own accounts, when Lotus was six her father, Jerome, moved their family from Los Angeles to Hong Kong, working as an importer. When a runaway taxi cab killed his wife while he rescued his daughter, Jerome blamed Lotus for his loss and descended into Alcoholism and gambling. Local crime lord Li Fong, allegedly responsible for the taxi collision, told Jerome he could pay his large debts with his daughter, or with two of his fingers. Jerome surrendered Lotus to Fong, who trained her in academics and martial arts, as she aged, Fong demanded her sexual favours in return. Coping by learning to separate her mind from her body, Lotus claimed her payment was fair, though her stories vary between affection and abuse. Offered a parting gift by Fong at age 21, she acquired her fatherís address and killed him. She then began a campaign to take over Californiaís illegal drug trade.
