Lau Khan is the father of Ken Khan.
He believed no conflict could not be resolved through communication and reason and was concerned about his son's attitude and rough-housing habits. His ideals as a pacifist were exploited by Julian Kintobor during the Great War as he captured the entire village without a fight. Lau and all the inhabitants of Leung West were then subjected to Julian's cybernetics experiments which resulted in his death as well as all the others, except for his son Ken Khan, who became the cyborg Monkey Khan.
