Financial struggles eventually led to a career change for Daniel Delgado. He decided to use his street smarts and martial arts training to make quite a name for himself as a hired hand in the trading business by getting people whatever they needed. He found out quickly that bigger game brought in bigger paychecks. After several close calls with the authorities and hardcore criminals, he decided that he needed to keep his identity safe if he wanted to try and live a somewhat normal life. He later took on a more professional role and became the man known as Repo: Thief for Hire. Whatever the item, there was never a job too big… for the right price. Repo was the one to call.
He began to work with the criminal leader known as Zuna who used deadly tactics along with Repo’s special talents to take control of the East Coast. Zuna is also trying to take control of the rest of the US by obtaining dirt on political runners in every state. By doing this, he would have full control of his illegal operations without interference of any law enforcement agency. Repo also worked with El Flaco who controls all of the illegal operations in the West Coast. By working for both crime lords, Repo was caught in the middle of the feud between the two and began to put himself in risky situations and decided to cut ties with El Flaco.
One night, El Flaco caught up with Repo when precious and rare jewels went missing. Repo had shown interest in the jewels after learning of its rare qualities, and this made El Flaco suspicious. He personally paid Repo a visit and demanded that he give back the jewel but Repo knew nothing of it. El Flaco always gets what he wants and this time he was not going to leave empty handed. Having had enough, El Flaco took Repo’s life…or so he thought. Lying there on the verge of death, Repo was found just outside his shop by his right hand man Jax who quickly took Repo to the hospital.
After a night at the hospital the doctors gave Repo and Jax the news that he had a very rare form of heart disease, but the doctors could not tell him how much time he had. Knowing that the best medical attention could not save him, Repo decided that his only chance of living would be to find a cure using something that he came across while obtaining some very rare stem cell’s for the lab that is controlled by the very man that tried to take his life…El Flaco.
