his youth, Chipp was addicted to drugs and worked for the Mafia as a buyer.
Eventually, his drug dependency worsened to the point where he could no
longer perform his job. No longer needed by the Mafia, Chipp was to be
disposed of when a ninja, who later became his teacher, rescued him. Chipp
began to open up to the man who saved his life, and became his apprentice.
But, that peace was short-lived. Eventually, the Mafia killed the ninja.
Trembling in anger, he vowed to take revenge on the Mafia. Unable to reach
the final rounds in the tournament, he learned that his heart, skills and
strength were still lacking, and devoted himself even more to his training.
Upon seeing Justice's death, he realized that even the monster that massacred
countless people was searching for help. This made him think about what
a true helping hand was. It was then that he heard of a Gear that was not
a threat to mankind.
