Once a humble potter, Freeman saw something he should not have seen. As a result he was stripped of his name and his freedom, forced to work as an assassin for the Chinese Mafia known as the 108 Dragons. Due to his flexible body and quick reflexes he quickly rose to be the top assassin of the syndicate. Each time he kills, he cries - earning him the name Crying Freeman.
