In his early life, Trang had black hair. When he served in the Vietnamese army, he wore a uniform of a green button up shirt, and matching colored pants and cap. After he retired, his hair grayed and he gained a bald patch.
During the Vietnam war, Trang raised a boy named Rako.
- General Trang was a relatively minor player in the comics, only appearing (and dying) in Captain Atom #26. That Trang was named Hu Trang, was Viet Cong instead of a North Vietnamese, and not responsible for the upbringing of Rako/The Cambodian.
