Back in the final year of the Cold War, a famous Chinese military tracker's wife gave birth to their only son, Tu Ah Pan. The father was trained in Chinese stealth tracking with a baseline unique skill in Ninja training. Coupled with superior bow and arrow skills, Tu Ah Pan's father was considered one of the greatest trackers in the Chinese Army. In 2000, Tu's mother died from health ailments due to the increased smog in their city. The father was upset over the way his wife was medically treated before her death and railed against the establishment. Unfortunately for Tu's father, they unleashed several of their secretive military super-powered thugs on him.
Tu's father was beaten within an inch of his life.
As a result of his 'attitude', Tu's father was imprisoned for 2 years for his actions and dishonorably discharged from the Chinese military. Tu was raised by neighbors during those two years until his father was released from prison. Within hours of his release, Tu and his father disappeared from the Chinese government's control and went to a special location Tu's father learned of while he was training in his ninja skills.
Over the next decade, Tu learned every skill his father learned; how to track, how to hide, stealth, hunting, survival and uniquely how to hide in the shadows and in plain sight. In 2012, the Chinese military found Tu and his father in their remote properly in Mongolia. Once again, the government sent out the remaining few super-powered military assets they had to punish Tu's father for hiding all these past years.
The Chinese super-powered military goons killed Tu's father before his eyes.
In a blind, maddening series of attacks, Tu unleashed everything his father taught him and killed three of the four Chinese supers. The remaining super barely made it out of the battle alive. Tu was heartbroken. He'd lost his mother to industrial waste and his father to the Chinese government. After a proper burial in a secret location, Tu left China and Mongolia and started traversing the globe. In his travels, he applied his new skills in tracking, hunting and hiding, as well as a few combat skills now and then against anyone who tried to take advantage of him. If wasn't until he made his way to Germany that Tu would start his career with the Exterminators.
While Tu was in outside of Bonn, Germany, he witnessed a super-powered Polish hero attack a band of black and blue garbed militants (The Exterminators). In that fight, he was impressed at how they worked as a team to subdue and capture the hero, and then mention that the super was 'fated for death' after he was examined. Strangely, Tu was excited for the first time ever in wanting to do something, to him, of value - the extermination of supers anywhere.
After an unusual meeting with the Exterminators (another story for another day), Tu was brought in and assigned to the Hunter unit. Over the next year, Not only did Tu track and hunt over 40 super-powered and alien beings (sometimes simultaneously) in Europe, but Tu also discovered two undercover supers amidst their own Exterminator ranks (of course they were promptly put to death). Director 13, the leader of the Exterminators, impressed with his efforts and dedication, promoted Tu as one of the two Unit Leaders of the Hunter Unit.
Today, with a new squad of over twenty agents he's personally trained in tracking and hunting, Tu, as the 'Stygian Huntsman' has now become a deadly and important member of the Exterminators. He is quiet, reserved and does a lot of 'showing up behind you' stuff. He enjoys unnerving people.

He has no powers.
Stygian Huntsman keeps standard utility body and waist belts of handcuffs, tasers, ammunition, tracking devices, black smoke distractions, various caltrops, and a variety of different arrow heads for smoke, toxins, electronic eavesdropping, short range EMP blasts and electrical shock.
He keeps at least 10-20 highly trained ninja-like minions with and around him at all times while tracking and hunting. They've worked out a complete series of hand, eye and body language gestures to communicate.
