Pre History
Blast was one of the first special forces agents to perform gun and weapon running to Vietnam. At this time, the U.S. was only involved in supporting the French effort to hold their influence over Vietnam. Blast, a chopper pilot, was tasked with the duty of making clandestine drops of weapons over the enemy lines.

Blast made many of his runs with a man named Redux. During his final run before being scheduled for service back in the States, he ran into trouble. His final drop went fine and he was about to take off for base when Redux surprised him. It seems that Redux was a double agent for Vietnam. Redux pulled the pin on a grenade and ran from the helicopter that was about to lift-off. Because Blast was strapped in for take-off, he was unable to remove his harness in time and was blown up in the resulting explosion.

If Blast was given a second chance he would take out Redux before he could be double-crossed.

Fun Facts
Not enough room for everyone
According to Michael Latham (EP and designer of the Eternal Champions series), the character Dawson from Eternal Champions: Challenge From the Dark Side, was originally planned to appear in the first EC, but didn't make the first cut. Chin Wo and Blast, secret characters from Challenge From the Dark Side, were also planned for the original game as well. These characters were scrapped due to memory limitations.
