Smith was Britain's police commissioner in Burma when he first came across Fu Manchu. Along with his friend Dr. Petrie, Smith repeatedly thwarted Fu Manchu's schemes in the years that followed and joined MI-6. For his work against Fu Manchu Smith was knighted. Eventually Fu Manchu took vengeance on Smith by having his legs crushed, crippling him. Years later Smith met Fu Manchu's son Shang-Chi after he had seemingly slain Dr. Petrie. Smith reveals to Shang-Chi the truth about his father setting him against him. When next they meet Shang-Chi convinces Smith that his paralysis is psychosamatic and he is able to walk again.
Smith and Shang-Chi would go on to stop many of Fu Manchu's schemes picking up various allies along the way. Smith eventually becomes frustrated with the corruption of MI-6 and resigns. He then forms Freelance Restorations Ltd. with some of the allies he acquired in his struggle against Fu Manchu. When it seemed that Fu Manchu had died a truly final death Smith finally retired.
