Mandarin (Armor)

The Mandarin (equipped in Makluan armor)

Gene Khan, known by his formal title of the Mandarin, is the leader of the Ten Rings, a terrorist organization bent on world domination. Years ago, Gene, then a simple archaeologist on loan from the Chinese government, uncovered a ship belonging to a troop of Makluan terrorists, and in that ship, he discovered 10 ancient rings, imbued with cut pieces of the mystical Soul Stone, that possessed great power.
