This is one of the main aspects that I felt was really missing from the first version of the comic - Cane's family history. As I developed the original more and more, I felt that it should have been at least acknowledged earlier in the story. So I'm amending that now. Even if it's just a taste :P

There is one more thing I want to acknowledge, while I'm here. Maya is a homeless person. She is also lazy and floats through life and is too cowardly to change. But please understand that I'm not trying to make some kind of statement against homeless people.

Maya's experience, though longer-lived, is based on my own. I spent a year and a half in the homeless shelter system in Baltimore MD. Maya's unwillingness to try to better herself is based almost entirely on my experience. Actually, Maya is actually better than I was in a lot of ways.

During my time in shelters, most of the people I met were either working hard to get out of their situation, or were unable to due to a various array of disabilities. Everyone is homeless for a different reason, so the last thing I want to do is make you think it's okay to look down on these people.

Got it? Good. See you next week!
