Shadowrun: Razor's Edge
Jin is of Asian descent, born in lands far to the West of Seattle, though he no longer remembers where. His parents were murdered not long after they arrived in the city, and the trauma has caused him to forget the experience and his past before it. He fled to the streets and has remained hidden there, grabbing food when and where he could and otherwise avoiding people, for he did not know who he could trust.
He learned the streets and how to hide, and he watched the people who lived there. He could see that he was different from them. Smarter, calculating, and there were times when he could… do things. Amazing things, that kept him safe. But he kept his abilities hidden because he knew they would only draw attention to him, attention that could be very dangerous, particularly from the gangs who ran the streets. And so, he continued to hide, hide and survive.
