Shen Fang was a Chinese gangster operating in Hong Kong. He was known for leading the gang of assassins known as the Ghost Dragons.
Originally the underworld don of Hong Kong, Shen Fang's supremacy was threatend by Carmine Falcone, who had fled Gotham City from the Batman. Despite their superior technique and initially numbers, the Ghost Dragons were unable to hold their own against Falcone's Mob. After five years of fighting, Falcone approached Fang and bought him out, giving the public the impression that it was Fang who was the victor while Carmine returned to Gotham. It was for this knowledge that the Batman and his Japanese agents attacked Fang for.
