The meteor strike of 1908 was an event that a sorcerer of Lo Chan Fu's ability could not ignore. Gathering a cadre of Brotherhood thugs he went to the site of the crater seeking the meteorite, but he was not the first there. Already scouring the countryside was a the Mad Monk, Rasputin, leading a band of Russian acolytes. As the two groups squared off a group of British, French and American agents appeared and a running battle ensued. The Chinese and Russians were driven off but, finding common ground, they united into a force that would plague all the civilized countries of the globe - the League of Occultists, Subversives and Terrorists or L.O.S.T.
Dr Lo Chan Fu
Very much the manipulator, Lo Chan Fu is older than any would suspect. His longevity is achieved by a tonic that only he knows the recipe for and an aptitude for having others do his dirty work. He is averse to physical confrontation and will do all he can to avoid enemy agents getting too close. If pressed he will often resort to the magics of his ancestors and cross to the spirit plane where he cannot be touched.

Weaver of FatesThe Sinister Mystic seems to be able to influence the very destinies of the cosmos. You may draw an extra 2 event cards at the start of the game, and can influence event card die rolls by either +1 or –1 if you wish. In addition, a tied initiative roll grants the Mystic’s side one audience appreciation marker as the cosmic energies favour the Mystic’s cast.
Expect to see the sinister Lo Chan Fu coming to an episode of 7TV soon. The script writers have also hinted at the possibility of seeing his rise to power charted in a spin off using In Her Majesty's Name!
