Austin Cao worked as a translator in the Language Services department at Midas Investments, a multinational brokerage firm. He was hardworking and well liked. He used to show off by identifying where someone was born within 50 miles just by their accent.

On his last day at the firm, he overheard two clients speaking and identified them as Latverians within five sentences and identifying they where talking about Hydra. An hour later he was fired based on made-up allegations of slacking off not three days after being commended in his annual review.

He decided to sue the firm for wrongful termination and contact the law firm of Nelson and Murdock. When Matt Murdock arrived at Austin's apartment to review the case, they were both targeted for assassination.

Both escaped, and Murdock offered Austin to stay at his apartment while he tried to find Austin's boss, Mr. Randall, to know the truth behind the Latveria connection. Immediately, the mercenary Brusier arrived to Randall's boat (where Daredevil was as well) to capture and take him to Roxxon Oil and other terrorist organization. And Austin was captured as well. Daredevil discovered that all had to do with those organizations whose data was stored electronically in a device called the Omegadrive. Daredevil talks his way out of it along Austin and Randall by stating to each group's representatives that one of them would have to kill each other to get the device and would end up starting a gang war, which wouldn't happen if Daredevil was allowed to leave and take all the blame for what happened and make himself a target instead.
