Eric Slaughter was once a timid, overweight, non-violent office worker, employed by MI-6, who was fascinated by "the art of strife", and the great warriors of the past. MI-6 subjected him to experimental treatments to create "the perfect optimum-danger operative", but the brainwashing methods drove him insane. Having lost his own identity, he "became" the many warriors he had been fascinated with, including St. George, Robin of Locksley, the Red Baron, Attila the Hun, and the Black Ninja. Dubbing him "War-Yore", MI-6 soon found the perfect assignment for him, recently, four MI-6 agents (Shang-Chi, Leiko Wu, Clive Reston and Black Jack Tarr) had quit the agency, and MI-6 felt they could no longer be trusted to keep their secrets. Because War-Yore was insane, he was chosen to eliminate them, so that even if something went wrong, his actions could be safely disavowed.
