He was once a deformed mute named Chenglei, given as payment to the cruel governor Zheng Li. Zheng ruled and heavily taxed a Shansi province in Japan near the end of the Southern Sung Dynasty.
Because of his high intolerance for pain, Chenglei was kept in the governor’s palace, where he was humiliated by Zheng Li and the amusement of his court. On his deathbed, the demon Mykoto visited him, who offered him a deal on behalf of Malebolgia, which he accepted.
He was reborn as a Hellspawn and returned to take revenge on those who tormented and abused him, killing them all. Sparing the court storyteller who showed him kindness, the Mandarin Spawn cursed Zheng Li and disappeared supposedly to rule a small corner of Hell.
