Doctor Mohinder Suresh is was a well-respected genetics professor at Chennai University in Madras, India. Chasing after his father's dream, he became that which he studied, and then his dreams fell apart. Cursed with continued mutation, he became little more than a monster, banished to the pit of his lab and desperate for a cure. After several years of living hell, he finally found one. Now he tries to understand where he fits in this new world, and just how much of his ragged morality followed him through his transformation.
