Thaddeus is an American emancipated slave and blacksmith with a deep history of martial conflict in 19th century China. After having already toppled one overreaching warlord with the help of several warriors and his custom iron gauntlet, Thaddeus has relegated himself to the life of a hermit in a humble village. Li Kung, one of the village's miners shelters Thaddeus, who seeks a new calling after having sworn off making weapons of war. However, his plans are derailed as the village's nefarious Master Ho, his henchmen the Beetle Clan and mysterious Lord Pi threaten the village with abuse and oppression.
