Within the context of the stories, Abe Brown, along with Bob Diamond and Lin Sun, is one of the most skilled students attending the martial arts school run by sensei Master Kee. Kee gives each of the three students a jade talisman in the shape of a tiger's head and forepaws when he sustains mortal injuries due to an attack by a group of ninja terrorists. As the Sons of the Tiger, the three martial artists avenge their master's death, and become a group of adventurers.
