Day 16: The Hyena

| November 16, 2011 | 0 Comments

The identity or identities of the assasin known as The Hyena is shrouded in mystery.  Stories of the trail of blood and murder of this almost urban legend character go back to the early 40’s in Ethiopia.  Where villages that had been attacked by invading Italian facist forces and sacked were said to have been visited by what was described as an almost ghost like figure who would massacre entire groups of up to 50 men single handedly in a ritualistically bloody manner.  This persisted on until the end of the war.  From there things were quiet for a few years .  Then other tales began around the beginings of the cold war of an assasin who also fit the physical description of the Hyena, who was contracted by everyone from The CIA, The FBI, The KGB, various organized crime groups, corporate intrest, MI5 and anyone who could afford his price.  No known photos were known to exist.  Then in 1972, for reasons yet unknown, but again unsubstantiated claims point to an organization known as ICE contracted him to take out several masked crimefighters.  He is said to have killed the original Juryman, and to have perminently crippled the silver age Jack of Hades along with up to 5 other heroes, before disapearing again into shadow and hushed murmurs.  Some said he was involved in everything from the Iranian Revolution to several high profile assasinations.  It is not even known that if he is the same man who has operated the same 70 years, or a series of killers? Recently he has been seen in several hotzones accross the globe again under the contract of ICE (International Covert Espionage).  He lives in shadows and few have ever lived to tell the tale.  Fewer still are bold enough to tell it!..
