He was then chased by the hit man that was going to kill him too, so he killed the hit man and was picked up by the police who called his uncle, a wealthy entrepreneur of the weapons manufacturer AWC (Advanced Weapons Corporation). He then proceeded to train himself in every martial arts and learned everything to become a masked vigilante Riptide. His first night (when he was 18) he takes out a drug convoy and kills the dealer who was killing innocents and was recently released from the Enhanced Human and Non-Human Prison Institute aka The Institute. The media viewed him as a hit man for another criminal underworld boss as he kept taking off without anyone noticing without giving a word to the press as most vigilantes do.
