I’m not cynical. Just experienced.
Carson is the only son of a Sioux shaman and a Gerakian. His mother died not long after his birth and his father raised him alone. Once he hit puberty, his father took him to Sanctuary so that the Peltiers could help him “adjust” to his newfound powers.
The cross mixture of his blood has left him with a few strange tendencies which causes him to spend a lot of time alone. Hoping to better understand himself, he went to med and vet school, and ended up back at Sanctuary where he now helps both Arcadian and Katagaria.
