Xu Shang-Chi is the son of Xu Wenwu, the founder of the Ten Rings.
Since his childhood, Shang-Chi underwent a brutal training that turned him into a formidable martial artist, however, his father's actions made him to escape the Ten Rings.
Seeking to start a new life outside of his father's shadow, Shang-Chi fled to the United States of America, maintaining a peaceful life under the name with his friend Katy Chen.
Eventually, the Ten Rings targeted Shang-Chi once again, so he joined forces with Chen and his sister Xu Xialing to oppose Wenwu in his quest to attack Ta Lo.
The fierce battle between Ta Lo villagers and the Ten Rings was interrupted by the Soul Eaters, so Shang-Chi had to defeat the Dweller-in-Darkness using the rings inherited from Wenwu.
