More than that, in another unknown point, Vilain had founded a terrorist mercenary organisation known as The Sangs, and wreaked fear, havoc and violence all over Albania and other countries. Before the events of the film, he had found out there is a huge amount of precious plutonium grade which weights 6 pounds at an abandoned Albanian mine, so, he started to kidnap children and men in Albania so they would work in the mines in order to find the grade. He did found amounts of plutonium, and sought to transform it to nuclear weapons and to sell them to the highest bidders in the globe.

Vilain is the leader of a mercenary group known as the Sangs. and he crosses paths with the Expendables in Albania when he captures their newest and youngest member, Billy "The Kid" Timmons. He then demands that they drop their weapons and give him the case with the coordinates to an abandoned Soviet plutonium mine. After the team drop their guns and give the case to Vilain, he has [[Hector (The Expendables)|Hector]] hold Barney's knife to Billy's chest as he roundhouse kicks it into Billy's chest, killing him as the Expendables watch in horror, powerless to do anything about it. In so doing, Vilain becomes the vengeful group's primary target.
