Bio:

Baljeet Darwish was born in southern India 30 years ago. He is a devout Hindi. Unfortunately, his bizarre appearance led to his castigation from the Hindu caste system. Adherence to one’s caste is the main path toward reincarnation in a higher form, so without a caste, Darwish was without a path in his life. He lived a rough life in a rough sprawl. Awakening attracted the attention of local organized crime, who recruited him and taught him the skills he needed to survive.

Darwish spent a few years working for the local syndicate, using his impressive skills as an assassin. He still longed to find his place in society, a central tenet of his religion known as dharma or “upholding the order of the universe.”

Eventually, he found work with Evo, working on patching software for them. He left his old life behind and became a proud corporate citizen.

While he worked for Evo, he met the love of his life, Shauna Brandanowitz. In short order they were married. For a time, Baljeet was happy.

Then, the unthinkable happened.

Long story short, Shauna was gone. Everything became a haze for Darwish. He set out to track down everyone responsible and take them out one by one. He vanished for a time and ran from end to end of the world. His memory of this time is incredibly hazy.

That is how the legend of Hit Monkey was born.

Some months later, Darwish found himself home. He resumed his job, trying to find solace in dharma. He became a very valued employee for Evo, an infamous code monkey.

He couldn’t fully go back to the way things were. He knew he was an excellent assassin, and it seemed foolish to waste the skills he was blessed with. The principle of artha taught that the objective and virtuous pursuit of wealth for livelihood is a virtue. What could be more virtuous than serving as an agent of kharma, ushering lost souls into their next rebirth before they wandered any further from brahman, the universal spirit?
