Where exactly did Syndi-Jean come from? You’ve written in your blog that she’s been with you, in a sense, for a long time.
She was born in my mind back in the late 90s actually. Her mother was a character I wrote stories about as early as 1983, so, yeah, there’s a lot of history there. An issue that comes up in the books is concerning her father, supposedly a notorious Vietnamese warlord whose connection with Syndi-Jean’s mother is a whole other story by itself. That doesn’t actually come up, but it ties into the idea if a person would be the sum of her DNA or her upbringing, not that Syndi-Jean had a conventional upbringing.
The idea of identity also comes up in the character of Helen… or is it Hank?
