Monako. Monako is a stage magician with real magical powers. Years ago a missionary couple were proselytizing in India. The couple is attacked by a hostile tribe, who kills the couple and wipes out the entire village they are living in. The couple’s child was the only survivor of the attack. He was adopted by the chief of the attacking tribe, who pass on their “black magic” to him. As an adult Monako emigrates to England and then returns to India. He lives there for "quite some time" and begins to correct some of the injustices caused by his adoptive tribe. Then, later, he either moves to America or simply buys a house/opens an office there. He still spends time traveling, however, and in at least one story fights against a "student of the black arts." He is aided by Pere, his super-strong magician’s assistant.
