Renowned for its expansive skyline and deep natural harbour, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas in the world and a leading international financial centre.
Spread across a harbour from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon City, the city is known as one of the most haunted cities on Earth, largely due to being the domain of the Ghost Fox Killer; a member of China's Great Ten superhero group who enslaves the souls of the people she's killed.
The city is also renowned for being the home of the Hong Kong Triads as well as the hero Night-Dragon; a hero influenced by Batman, who operates to keep the balance between the Hong Kong police and the United Triads.
Captured during the First Opium War (1839–42), Hong Kong Island became a colony of the British Empire after the war's end. Originally confined to island, the colony's boundaries were extended in stages to the Kowloon Peninsula and the New Territories by 1898.
During the beginnings of Communism in China in 1949, many of Shanghai's mobsters turned to Hong Kong to continue their business. In an effort to ensure the continued survival of her people, whose dimensional realm required the souls of evil beings to continue its existence, the woman who would become known as the Ghost Fox Killer began operating in Hong Kong at this time and hunted the mobsters to ensure the survival of her home.
During the Second World War, Hong Kong was occupied by Japan, after which the British resumed control until 1997, when China regained sovereignty, however, Hong Kong retained it's independence from China's law system. Part of China and yet seperate, the city now enjoys autonomy in all matters except for foreign relations and military defence.
