Background/History: Sun Koh fell from the sky in London one rainy night in 1932. He had no memory of where he came from or who he was, but he was a master of every skill, and he knew the Truth. There is a new Ice Age coming, and only the strongest shall survive. Sun Koh seeks to conquer the lesser races and the hidden lands of Earth, to lead Germany and the Aryan people of the world into that new age. He is the descendant of ancient kings and the rightful heir to Atlantis, the chosen of destiny. Those of impure blood shall never stand against him.

Sun Koh quickly gathered a string of companions, from men who were merely exceptional to Alaska Jim the master explorer and Jan Mayen the inventor and adventurer.

Sun Koh was essentially a Nazi Doc Savage. His adventures were published from 1933 to 1936, written by Paul Alfred Müller-Murnau under the name Lok Myler. He later appeared on and off until 1938 in the Jan Mayen adventures.

Personality/Motivation: Sun Koh is an absolute monster who sees himself as a hero. He will slaughter and enslave the natives of hidden lands, steal sacred artifacts, and generally act much like an American pulp character. He believes that it is his destiny to return glory to Germany, and that the lesser races of humanity are resources to be exploited or enemies to be destroyed in the name of the Aryan people. He is racist, sexist, and casually murderous. He will commit any crime in the certainty that he is morally right, and that those who stand against him are villains or, at best, fools.

If he were alive today, he'd spend his time arguing politics on the Internet. Eventually, he'd get his own talk show.

Quote: A new Ice Age is coming, and only the fittest and strongest will survive.

Powers/Tactics: Sun Koh is a Doc Savage knock off. The above list of skills and powers may be on the conservative side. As things stand, he is fiercely competent and should be able to take on entire groups of lesser men in hand to hand combat, but can be defeated if taken by surprise (difficult with that Danger Sense) or if faced with overwhelming fire power. While he is designed to be profoundly fast and strong, a specialist PC may just be slightly better than Sun Koh in a single area; this was intentional, and fits the Doc Savage pattern.

Used in HtH, his Two Weapon Fighting and Rapid Attack allow him to take a half move and then sweep or MPA with significantly reduced penalties. He should get in at least two or three shots in on most foes in the first phase of combat.

Sun Koh will flee if he's losing, and don't forget his Plot Points. Destiny takes care of her own, and Sun Koh may not be destined to fall at the hands of the PCs.

The easiest way to power up Sun Koh is to stat out his followers. 200+ point characters in their own right, I'd suggest making each one a specialist who looks to Sun Koh for leadership. High tech gadgets, weapons and vehicles are certainly appropriate; google Captain Mors for ideas.

Campaign Use: Paraphrasing Manfred Nagl as quoted by Jess Nevins, “Sun Koh and Jan Mayen have been chosen by fate--and also provided by it with the resources of a sophisticated and extremely powerful technology. It is their vocation to create or capture new and arable territories for the German people and the White races. This they achieve by raising Atlantis out of the ocean and by making Greenland (Thule) arable. The manner in which Sun Koh and Jan Mayen treat the rest of humanity in the pursuit of their aims is distinguished from Nazi methods only insofar as the fictive inferior peoples speedily submit."

Sun Koh should be used a dark mirror for your characters. On the surface, he has high tech gimmicks, fights strange foes, explores the far corners of the globe, and lives the life of a typical Pulp hero. However, he sees all non Aryans, indeed most non-Germans, as lesser races fit only for enslavement or extermination. He might make temporary common cause with the heroes, but in the end he serves the ideals of racial superiority and Germany's national destiny, and he sees tens of millions of non-Aryan corpses as no price at all.

Appearance: A perfect blond-haired blue-eyed Aryan. A map to Atlantis and other hidden lands is tattooed on Sun Koh's back and side, but this is concealed by his clothing.
