This unnamed assassin was a Lung Li operative who worked with the Elgen Corporation.
In the book, he was one of the guards who captured Michael and the Electroclan at the hotel. At the Taiwan Starxource Plant, he calmly started to torture Michael, while claiming it is "acupuncture". He intended to stick at least 360 needles into Michael's electric body, and possibly kill him in the process. As he was about to shock Michael, "Carl Vey" arrived and furiously ordered the man to leave. However, Carl was actually the man's boss Dr. Hatch in
It is unknown where the assassin is now, but it is possible that he was killed in Tuvalu when chasing Michael to the top of the ladder, where he would have been disintegrated.
