Jackie Chan is an amateur archaeologist living above his uncle's antique shop in San Francisco, California when he comes across a magical artifact on a dig. This brings him to the attention of his old friend, Captain Augustus Black, who is in charge of a secret governmental organization known as Section 13, as well as the criminal organization known as the Dark Hand, led by Valmont.
The artifact he found is a shield, which contains one talisman from a set of twelve. This sets Jackie, his uncle (Uncle), his niece (Jade), and allies on many adventures involving magic, danger, and often the fate of the world itself.
