Then Mongolian adventurer Ja Lama (real name: Dambijatsan) is your man.
Said to be both immortal and invulnerable; the son of a demon; the reincarnation of an 18th Century hero; and able to rip the beating heart from the chest of prisoners, Ja Lama operated in and around Tibet and Mongolia in the early 20th Century at the head of his own army.
Even after his death, it was believed his angry ghost rode the winds, seeking vengeance on those who slain him.
