I grew up in the Renraku arcology in Calcutta. Born among corporate Kshatriyas (warriors), I was made by my father to serve the Renraku corporation. I and my brother was made the perfect human, gifted with superhuman prowess, at par with the Red Samurai of Renraku, Japan. But, as puberty hit, something changed and I turned into this, horned demon. This physical form, mighty though it was, the people at Renraku hated me, simply for my appearance I was labelled as an Asura, an anathema of humans and the discarded creation of the god, Brahma. Despite my sheltered life, I lived a damned life, having to prove myself under crippling peer pressure that I was worth it.

Yet my brother, born just as human as me, was transformed into image of a deity and with divine powers by the holy river Ganges. But why was I not bestowed such a gift? I too bathed in her glory and yet all I received was goblinization. My father spewed the seeds of competition among us, at a young age. Thus me and Krishna sparred often. His blade vs my mace. I was stronger and bigger, yet how come I lost all the time? Perhaps my technique was wrong. My father was a corporate warrior through and through and every time I lost, he pushed me further. Not by encouragement or love, but by punishment. Slowly replacing parts of my body with used cybernetics. In time, I was more machine than man and I developed a deep seated belief that only through augmentation can I reach divinity and hope to match Krishna's prowess.

And when I thought the day finally came that I have gained enough power to best my brother, my father was found murdered in his office, his skull crushed by something heavy. They had no evidence yet they blamed me for my inability to protect my father and superior. I was deemed a disgrace and ordered to take my life. But I wasn't responsible and thus I refused, instead choosing shame and running way to prove my innocence another day.

I trudged though slums and scum, living a wretched life, trying to outrun the gaze of my brother. I ran and ran till I left the country and shipped myself to the UCAS, with no money and nowhere to live. A few weeks down the line I find myself with a company most foul. I have become a shadowrunner, living in a shitty apartment near the Tacoma docks. I don't know what lies in my future, but I will not give in to fate's hands. I will redeem myself. But for now I live in the shadows, like a wretched demon, an Asura.
