The Blood Bond

Synopsis: A world-renowned spiritual leader arrives in the Asian nation of Purma to give a teaching to the faithful. Accompanying him is a retinue of monks and attendants, including his personal bodyguard, Deva, a beautiful Eurasian girl with extraordinary physical prowess. As soon as Bagwun and his party reach their hotel, they are attacked by assassins from a rebel terrorist group. Wounded, Bagwun needs to undergo a life-saving operation within twelve hours. However, his blood type is so rare that only a few donors can be found who can reach the capital in time to help. Rebel leader Lompoc obtains the same information, and has his agents kill off the donors one-by-one. Deva gets information about a possible 7th donor in a remote village in the North, and she decides to brave the dangerous journey alone into the guerrilla-held badlands. There, she finds the last possible donor whose blood can save Bagwun: a drunken, embittered former Special Forces operative named John Tremayne.

My dear, devoted Deva.

Your skills have become


I've been blessed

by your teachings, master.

Come, sit with this old man

for a moment.

You have passed

every physical challenge...

endured the hardship of our ways.

But for you to be fully realised as

a Bharmaja a protector,

I must know if your mind...

and heart and spirit

are also forged anew.

Please recite for me

the 3rd lesson of the Bharmaja.

To stop rather than injure...

injure rather than maim...

maim rather than kill...

and only take a life

when the needs of the spirit...

outweigh the needs of the body...

You have walked far

into the sunlight, Deva...

but I sense a shadow on you yet.

I would know of the road...

that brought you to our temple gate.

It was four years ago...

my first task as a Bharmaja:

to protect my teacher

The Bagwun?


Purma was a nation torn apart

by civil war.

The rebel forces, the PLM,

controlled the North of the country...

the government forces the South

Rebel leader Kin Lompoc's men

detained and executed...

anyone believed to support

the existing regime.

Executions were carried out daily,

brutally and without trial.

The only hope lay with the Bagwun...

a spiritual leader revered

by the people of Purma...

a man bringing a message

of peace to a land at war.

A man I was sworn to protect...

The Purmese government

had provided us...

with rooms at a 5-star hotel...

and a full security detail

around the clock.

Even so,

I sensed danger that night...

What is it?

I don't know.

Something wrong?

I'm not sure.

Deva, why must you always...

look for shadows on a sun-filled day?

The brighter the sun,

the darker the shadow.

That sounds very wise.

It should, you said it.


very wise indeed.

Is there anything else before bed?

No, I feel very content and safe

Alright! Well, I'll leave you then.

The Bagwun is alone.

Copy! Stand by.

We have a very serious problem here.

What kind of problem?

The Bagwun,

he needs a blood transfusion.

So do it.

It's his blood type.

It's AB Rh negative.

It's a very rare blood type.

How rare?

Here is the donor list

with addresses...

and contact numbers, doctor.

Thank you.

We've called all the other hospitals

in the area...

and could only find five donors

on record.

Four in the metro area...

and one man we were treating

for a liver disorder.

He lives up north.

His name is Tremayne.

We still have the address

of the clinic...

where we used to send him

his medicine.


we go with one of the four donors

here in town.

What if you can't find them.

Shouldn't you...

look for this Tremayne as well?

I'm not sending one of my men

up north.

It's a suicide mission.

I'll go.

The PLM own that part of the country

They don't take kindly to outsiders

Unlike your men,

it's possible I can slip in and out

of area quietly...

I can take care of myself.

Yeah, I've noticed

If you want to go, I won't stop you

But you're on your own

Thank you

Here's the information

Long live the liberation

What are you doing here?

Bad news

Did you contact our operators in the city?

They are in process.


Did you see who's name is on this list?

Small world.

Go back to the city.

Kill the other four donors.

And what about Tremayne?

I'll send Logan to keep an eye on him.


I really appreciate this.

But, is there any way

you can make it a round trip?

I'd like to help you.

But I've got medical supplies to deliver.

Where you're going is a real hot zone.

I can drop you, but that's it.

Good enough. Let's go.

So how long have you been flying this route.
