Tora No Shi's name means Tiger of Death. He likes his hits be as colorful and destructive as possible, he often uses high-explosives and his spectacular swordplay.
Tora was first seen in New York when he was hired by Yakuza, to hit police department. Next job on the list was Italians, specifically Jackie Estacado. Then he was needed to hit Yakuza, closing the circle. In a fight orchestrated by Bruce Wilder, Tora dies by Ian Nottingham hands.
Next time he's seen resurrected by Sonatine. Then he is recruited by Yakuza to hit Italians. He again clashes with Ian Nottingham, and this time Tora kills him. But Ian is soon resurrected by Excalibur. During the battle between himself and Nottingham they are described as two different people. Tora No Shi is someone who kills and murders anyone including innocents to get the job done while Ian is more of a mercenary only harming those who need to be and maintaining a moral code and honor. Ian has Tora No Shi defeated during their second fight by relents and shows Tora No Shi some mercy. In return, Tora attacks Ian from behind and stabs him in the stomach.
Tora No Shi goes to murder Kenneth Irons at Cautly Towers in NYC. While visiting Kenneth Irons, Nottingham attacks him again. Badly beaten he is taken in by Irons. He works as Kenneth's Personal guard and servant. He now have received transfusions, chemical baths, incantations, and Ta Moko…all this to make him better. Still he is no match for Ian Nottingham, when he comes to exact revenge on Kenneth Irons, and is defeated quite easily.
