Artist's Description

Original character, Farrar/Jung-Su © Drecnitha

Farrar originates from Korea. Father is Thai, mother is Korean. Both parents have Japanese family background, beginning from their ancestors.

Farrar’s real name is Jung-Su, Farrar being a nickname because of his grey rimmed eyes (“Farrar” being a British name for a boy meaning “Grey”).

Because having Japanese ancestory, both parents know the mythology of the Kitsune (Japanese for “fox” and the name given to the fox demons in Japanese mythology).

The Jung family have a story passed from generation to generation of Kitsune blood being in their make-up chemistry due to an old folk legend of a Kitsune taking human form and mating with an ancestor. Over time, the gene of the Kitsune has been watered down by human blood, making the Kitsune blood almost vanish.

But over the years, there have been ancestorial markings known to be from the fox demon in the story, despite Farrar’s parents having moved away from Japan to come to Thailand and Korea.

Farrar (or Jung-Su) being the most recent to have evidence of the Kitsune gene (markings etc). However, what makes him different from his past ancestors is his markings being more distance than others, stronger in appearance. But depending on his mood.

Farrar, or Jung-Su is friends with a little girl who is known to be weird or creepy looking to those of her peers. She is a Korean-American, and he has made himself out to be only a person of her imagination (an imaginary friend) to give her company when in actual fact he is real as any other human being.

She knows him as Jung-Su, so that her familiarity with her family background is there to comfort her. She lives with her father’s grandparents and is a foster child because both parents are dead. She writes in her diary in fluent Korean and Japanese.

She is also a mute (or dumb – as the old phrase used to be, where someone cannot speak).

Over the years, Farrar has deliberately stimulated the fragments of his Kitsune gene to stimulate his powers and show off to her to make her smile.
