Joe "Ace" WuAge:
Ace joined the Marines as soon as he was out of high school. After completing basic recruit and infantry training, Ace was deployed overseas and assigned to a unit whose commanding officer had been committing various forms of war crimes. The marines under this CO had also participated in some of these crimes, including the rape of several women from local villages. While serving under this CO, Ace learned various new techniques including torture and interrogation. These crimes went on for years before an investigation was conducted and even then only the CO was arrested for all charges. Everyone else under his command were either transferred or discharged due to lack of sufficient evidence that pointed specifically to each individual. Ace, more specifically, was dishonourably discharged from the Marines due to violent behaviour and insubordination.
After getting back home, Ace worked for a few years as a bouncer / bartender at his uncle's strip club. His uncle was good friends with Mark Mason and his strip club was a part of M.M. Industries (part-ownership). Not content with his current work, Ace did a few side-jobs for Mason. After Ace's uncle passed away, Ace became the strip club's newest owner.
