Virtually nothing is known about Timothy Lee, but once he began expanding his business operations outside of Chinatown, he was quickly noticed by the Kingpin
. An associate of the Kingpin's, Mr. Soames, sought to frame Lee for the murder of a prostitute, while the actual killer, Pig Malone
, acted as a star witness for the District Attorney's office. Lee summoned his servants, the Four Winds
, to leave China and journey to New York to kill Malone, but the police hired Elektra
to serve as Malone's bodyguard. The Four Winds were defeated, but Lee never went to trial because both Malone and the Assistant District Attorney were killed.
