Origin

Born the daughter of criminal mastermind, Zheng Zu, Zheng Bao Yu,[1] then known as Fah Lo Suee, daughter of "Fu Manchu".[5]

Criminal

She originally followed in her father's footsteps. Initially, she sought to subvert Fu Manchu's control of the dreaded Si-Fan assassins, but eventually, she led her own criminal organization, the Oriental Expeditors, who were a front for the Golden Daggers sect.[5]

MI-6 agent

After collaborating with British Intelligence, Fah Loh Suee was eventually placed as a director of MI-6. Her endeavors perpetually placed her at odds with her estranged brother, Shang-Chi, and his fellow MI-6 agents.[citation needed]

Back to crime

Over a decade later, she was once again involved in the criminal underworld. Fah Lo Suee headed a narcotics empire supplying the highly addictive drug, Wild Tiger. Representing her in Hong Kong was the Wild Tiger Mob led by Deng Ling-Xiao. It was brought down by Shang-Chi whom never learned that she was behind it all.[6]

Later, she joined Caroline LeFay's Doom Maidens (Midgard) (Earth-616), being promised protection and allies in her activities. Now going by Zheng Bao Yu, she led the Celestial Order of the Hai Dai to set up a lab under Chinatown, in New York City, where they continued a long-forgotten experiment of Zheng Zu by bio-engineering Brood (or rather "genetic mutations spawned from tainted Brood DNA"), which they used for assassinations, until the Defenders Valkyrie and Misty Knight recruited Elsa Bloodstone in their inquiry about monsters in Chinatown, and tracked down the lab. During the fight against the Brood, Hai Dai and Zheng Bao Yu, the Defenders were joined by No-Name of Brood.[1]

Powers

Like many associated with Fu Manchu, the Cursed Lotus is a beneficiary of the Elixir of Life, and as such, possesses the youth and vitality of a woman half her age.

Abilities

The Cursed Lotus is every bit as devious and cunning as her father. Driven by high ambition, Fah Lo Suee is never reluctant to shift alliances so long as it aides in achieving her goals. She is also a fair hand-to-hand combatant.

Fah Lo Suee is hypnotically seductive. Her voice and movements command attention, and her eyes can entrance a man in moments. She has easily manipulated a variety of men into falling in love with her, devoted to serving her wishes. She occasionally uses scented vapors or hypnotic rubies to further enhance her skills.

Strength level

The Cursed Lotus possesses the strength level of a woman her age, size and weight who engages in moderate regular exercise.[citation needed]
