Baby Kanak hung-on for "his" life as the nefarious Doctor prepared the tools he needed for the procedure.
DR. MENDEL - The sluggish creature known as Dr. Maka Mendel may look sinister and mindless at first sight, but in fact he is a tortured soul destined to work for the all powerful Gang Lord known as The Fixer. An extremely intelligent and masterful surgeon, Mendel relies on machinery to carry around his weight for him. His horrible birth defect has made him a freak of nature that only a mother could love.
Kanak Gadea - son of Bhima Gadea became very ill as a child due to an outbreak of a deadly disease that hit his neighbourhood. The disease killed many around him and Bhima feared for his son’s life. In order to keep his son alive he made a deal with a gang lord called Fixer, leader of The Island Gang. Kanak was to be given to The Island Gang and in return they would heal him from his ailments. Bhima proceeded to hand the boy over to Fixer knowing that he would probably never see his son again.
Fixer's Wives - Kanak had become Fixer's new wife, he openly practiced polyamory. Fixer's other three wives had every reason to hate Kanak, she had “climbed” over them in order to become his number one priority. Kanak had made enemies out of all of them. Because the wives were forced to spend most of their time together they knew and understood each other well - they could tell what other wives where up to just by reading into each others' mannerisms and subtleties of their actions.
