Crane does not remember much of his childhood, or his parents for the matter. He can't even remember what his name is, only evers remember going by Crane. He named his younger sister Zelda because of a name he saw on TV, pretty weather lady. He does remember Renraku and their Red Samurai, and what they did to his family.
First, they were the cause of the entire branch of his father's family after the slaughter in the Seattle Archology. Second, they exiled his family to the SINless and stole his mother and brother. Leaving his father, younger sister, and himself left in the slums. Third, they killed his father in front of him. They gunned him down along with a group of others when shadowrunners attempted to escape through their neighborhood. Then when he tried to avenge his father, the samurai looked at him and in a translator software says, "There is no reason to kill you. You have no honor, people like you can never have honor."
From that moment of mercy that the samurai gave on, Crane changed. Renraku had destroyed his family and Red Samurai had just come to finish the job. They had even removed his personhood, with Crane being raised to believe that everyone had honor and those without honor were not people. That moment he grew enraged and swore that he would show Renraku and Red Samurai true honor. Crane swore over his father that he would destroy Renraku, he would kill samurai.
Crane was now in charge of himself and his sister, and if he were to get back on his enemies he would need to do as much work as he can. He would start with working with local gangs as a messenger. Crane eventually met a group of Neo-Anarchist shadowrunners who taught him the lessons on how to fight the corps. With him working with the shadorwrun community of Hong Kong from a young age.
Crane during this started to read and from this adopted the Way of the Samurai. Slowly over time Crane learned everything he could about Renraku. Eventually attempting to lean their philosophy, their religion, and even their language. Crane couldn't pick up the Japanese language but he did learn English after watching enough samurai trids that were only dubbed in English.
Crane probably would have never left Hong Kong until he got a piece of info after hitting a Renraku facility, a picture of his mother in Seattle. So Crane left Hong Kong, smuggling himself and his sister in a large carrier ship.
When he first arrived in Seattle Crane began to brand himself to look for others in the fight against Renraku. He began to leave cards and flyers with his symbol, a red circle with a golden crane in the center, wherever he went with “Geek the Samurai” in English and the contact info for a metalink he picked up. Crane stopped with the flyers when the metalink blew up in his pocket and his car blew up when some thieves thought they could steal his car and found quite the explosive surprise, Crane knew who that bomb originally was for. Now he just paints the symbol wherever he goes, with the symbol still showing that it’s him without giving his matrix contact to the people he’s fighting.
Crane understands that he is fighting an impossible battle, but just because something is impossible doesn’t mean that it is improbable. Shadowrunners have fought and beat AI gods, dragons, and whatever the hell bug spirits are. So now Crane walks a path of vengeance, holding the code to show his honor with the golden crane as his flag.
