Hint Hint #1

As a writer I really want to tell a unique story for every character, especially the main characters in Mutagen. For one of the main characters I have been doing some heavy research into Japanese culture and decided to post a couple of hints about his family's background.

Note: This is his family's background, not his own...or maybe it is, you will just have to see ;)

Basically I wanted to explore with this main character the dynamics of shame and the effects of a crisis of faith as well as radical groups and their member's children.

Here is a link to the wikipedia page that describes the uyoku dantai, the Japanese term for Japan's radical imperial nationalist groups.

I am doing a lot of research so I can correctly capture the Japanese culture and the mindset of these groups and what their effect would be on this character. I try to be as accurate as possible in the portrayal of any culture or background when I write.
