Following the events of "High Noon", Coldstone travelled to Tibet in an attempt to protect his family from his "Iago" personality. While there, he encountered an order of Buddhist monks whose head, Master Dawa, helped Coldstone control the "Iago" persona.
Goliath, Elisa Maza, Angela, and Bronx visited Tibet on June 18, 1996 as part of the Avalon World Tour. They encountered Coldstone, but he still refused to endanger his family by returning to Avalon with them and, pretending to be under the control of "Iago", he rendered them unconscious. The Avalon travelers were then sent by unknown means to Shambahla. ("Reunion")
Three months later, David Xanatos tracked Coldstone down in the Himalayas and captured him using Steel Clan robots. ("Possession") Coldstone and Coldfire eventually returned to the monastery, until Coldfire picked up Coldsteel's signal (courtesy of Xanatos), on November 13, 1996. ("Rock of Ages")
Real World Background
Today, Tibet is a part of the People's Republic of China, although the Tibetan Government-in-Exile (headed by the Dalai Lama) considers this Chinese administration as an illegitimate military occupation.
Tibet is the center of Tibetan Buddhism.
