"To Live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering"
Karasu Hotsuin is a native Japanese-American of Prospect, his family, who immigrated during the late thirties to America, managed to settle in within Prospect and secure themselves a place of business within Chinatown before the onset of World War II occurred. Despite the events of the Second Great War, the Hotsuin managed to survive the events and thrived after the war by using their connections to export needed supplies to Japan and import exotic goods for the American consumer.
Karasu was born in the early eighties and grew up part of Prospect Chinatown, his family grooming him from his early age to take over the family Business. After High School, Karasu went on to earn his BA in Business, then went back to Japan to solidify the ties between his family in America and the extended Hotsuin family in Japan. While away in Japan, his parents were killed in an unfortunate car accident which has left Karasu as the new head of the family in America. Of course, six months after Karasu's Mother and Father were killed in a car accident, Karasu himself nearly met the same fate in Japan, but due to some unknown force, Karasu survived the crash, but suffers from Amnesia of his life before the wreck. Its now six months since the wreck and some details of his life before has come back to him, but he is still trying to re-construct who he was, while now, taking the mantle of the Hotsuin family in Prospect.
