Not named
father, deceased
X-character.jpg
a former South Vietnamese soldier who had been wounded gravely during the war; his health was shaky throughout Shan's childhood. Because he was anti-Communist during the war, it was difficult for him to get the help he needed to deal with his badly-injured leg, as well as the post-traumatic stress disorder he developed after the Communists' takeover of the south in 1975. He died in a hotel fire, caused by his brother and son, in 1998.

PB: None.


Not named

A quiet, gentle woman under great stress. She also died in the 1998 hotel fire.

PB: None.


General Nguyen Coy
uncle
General nguyen coy.jpg
Brother to Shan's father, Nguyen was a general in the Vietnam war, who turned to criminal activity as a way of sustaining the family. What started as a way of supporting his family became an end of itself, as he found he enjoyed the power he amassed as a petty gangster. It was at his behest that the family relocated to America, in 1989. His activities came to the attention of the FBI and in in an act of retributive arson against a hotel owner, he accidentally killed his brother and sister in law, among others. He fled with his nephew, Shan's twin, and has not been seen since.

PB: Truc "Charlie" Nguyen


Tranh Coy Manh
twin brother

With a tendency to get into trouble as a boy, Tranh eagerly joined his uncle in crime when approached. The manifestation of his powers, identical to his sister's, only increased his waywardness. By the time his parents were killed by the fire he and his uncle set, he was already largely estranged from them and his sister, and he has not made contact with her since.

History

Shan's father was a former South Vietnamese soldier who had been wounded gravely during the war; his health was shaky throughout Shan's childhood. Because he was anti-Communist during the war, it was difficult for him to get the help he needed to deal with his badly-injured leg, as well as the post-traumatic stress disorder he developed after the Communists' takeover of the south in 1975. Her mother was a gentle, quiet woman under great stress. Shan is the eldest of the twins, being born two minutes before Tranh.

Nguyen, her mother's brother, was a general during the war and lived with the family in Hanoi. He helped support them with a series of minor criminal activities, unknown to his sister and her husband. He encouraged his nephew Tranh, already a troublemaker, into crime. It was at his behest that the family moved to the US in 1989. Nguyen continued his criminal activities, eventually coming to the attention of the FBI.

The younger twins, Nga and Leong, were born in 1995. When they were three years old, their parents were accidentally killed in a fire started by Nguyen and Tranh, who fled in the confusion. After this, Shan took on sole responsibility for her siblings, raising them as best she could. In August 2004 she took a job at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, and enrolled the twins as students there.

She has had no contact with her brother or uncle since that time. In August 2010, with the twins still showing no signs of manifesting, Shan decided to move to Salem Center in order for them to have a wider social circle and to allow her the chance to pursue her own academic career.
