Prasert was the grandfather of Chan
and was among the villages forced into slave labor in General
Narai's Burmese opium fields. His old age made the forced
labor hard on him and a constant frustration for Truang.
After MacGyver chanced Truang
out of the village Prasert willingly joined the other villages in
preparing to fight against Narai's men by helped build a trap
which would remotely trigger
rifles to fire at the tires of Narai's jeeps and was pleased to
see the change MacGyver's guidance had brought to Ming,
allowing him to move from a slave to a leader.
