he has an older sister who ran off with a lover when they were young. She visits sometimes to give his kids too much sugar and encourage them to do wild shit like express themselves. Of course you can finger paint on the walls Genji.
He liked sweets he kept a stash in his office.
God damn he loved his wife
it was a kind of business marriage, probably arranged for him, but they were lucky and fell in love. She was super funny?? It surprised him she seemed so quiet and reserved in meetings between their families he was not expecting dick jokes on the first date
They worked wonderfully together, he was a practical businessman and she was ruthlessly clever and charismatic. A perfect team the family had never done better.
She died having Genji. His father never blamed him though.
God damn he loved his kids!
He was always busy but still a damn good dad. He never ignored his kids and tried not to tell them “not now” if he could help it. He took every opportunity he possibly could to go out and do fun kid stuff with them. He’d do Hanzo’s hair for him and help him with his homework. He’d let Genji paint his nails and scribble on papers he didn’t need, just please, not the walls again.(Hanzo’s responsible attitude developed quite early. Think like, 4 years old following Genji while he crawls around, just kinda herding him away from things he shouldn’t touch. Probably making a face and sighing like he’s too old and tired for this, even tho he is doing it completely by his own will.This was helpful for poor busy dad.)
He told his kids stories before bed almost every night. Even when it was just Hanzo. When they were a little older and he pulled that “once there were two dragons who were grounded because they stayed out past curfew” Genji told him he should have ditched the family and written children’s stories. He low key liked the idea.
There’s a picture of his wife on his nightstand and he talks to her sometimes. About things that are stressing him out, about how smart Hanzo is or how Genji looks exactly like her.
He tried not to put excessive pressure on Hanzo, but Hanzo would just make up for it by putting pressure on himself. This is a little bit frustrating, he doesn’t wanna say, “maybe you shouldn’t aim so high”, but he hates to see Hanzo so stressed out trying to reach the bars he set for himself. He appreciates that Genji seems to take care of and support his brother, tho.
He never pushed Genji to accept his role as heir to the family, but he did try to convince his son that there was a nobility in what they did. Even if they dealt in weapons and drugs and death, they provided jobs and second chances to unfortunate people, they were fair with their justice and they protected their city.
He was constantly at odds with his wife’s older and younger brothers, who joined the family’s council of elders when they married into the family. The pair of them were greedy and underhanded and blamed Genji for the death of their sister. They went behind his back and gave the poor kid shit all the time.
He always has been and would still be very proud of his kids.
People be lovin on Dracula and siding with the Vampire Daddy in his endeavor to eradicate the human stench of the planet but, y’all, come on
Even his dhampir child was like dude, just kill the assholes who killed mom goddamn
(and Dracula wounds his own son so much the pretty boy needed a YEAR to recuperate? not #1 Dad material, yikes) (though Dracula’s freak-out was epic and amazing, still murder!)
Wait you expect ordinary common people to stand up to the Church?!?
LOL THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE CHURCH DOESN’T LIKE YOU
You watch your family and your ancestral house burn.
Not even a powerful family like the Belmonts could stand up to the Church. If you’re at odds with the Church, you’re FUCKED. Ordinary people can’t afford that. Hell, great houses like the Belmonts can’t afford that.
So no, the Number One Drama King Dracula is in no way justified in unleashing his potent, ungodly wrath on scared simple humans and deserves only a very specific, very finite sympathy.
(his wrath was awesome, lol, but he’s still gotta pay for it)
I mean, this was freakin awesome. But was it bats? Birds? Bats and birds? Stop killing babies, dude
Maybe it’s just my delusional Yousana shipping self, but I think that the clothing between these two really do mean a lot.
Throughout the season, they wear black and white, sometimes clashing like:
But notice that they are still the black and white colours, symbolizing how they haven’t really connected fully. Sana’s world is still pretty black and white up until this point.
Then there’s Maghrib:
I think what is important in Magribh is that they are both wearing grey, showing that Sana is blending her black and white world.
They are no longer clashing, or being too one sided of black or white, rather, they are mixing the colours. Sana is blending her world views because of Yousef, and him matching her only signifies that he is doing the same thing because her.
Instead of her going to his side of the colour spectrum, or him coming to her side, they met halfway ❤️
I’m hoping that if we (please Julie) get another Sana pov clip in this last episode, we will see more colours, we will see more greys, indicating her shifting and possibly more enlightened (literally and metaphorically) perspective.
