The Registration Act 619 had been a necessity – mutants had to be registered and examined by a federal board, and if found potentially dangerous for humans, tested.
Hanzo had no idea what happened to those who didn’t pass the test, but Goldberg concern with some citizens disappearing after the procedure made his sixth sense tickle in the wrong way.
Genji was another story. Of course, no one would have publicly held his existence against their father, but there would have been rumors. Gossips, cracks in the foundations of the empire Sojiro Shimada and his father before him had built in the years.
A mutant son was a dishonor that would have destroyed the good name of the family.
One mutant son was more than enough.

Back in the leader seat after 3 years of imprisonment Shiro struggles to maintain his focus pursuing the end of the Galra empire while fighting a war with himself. He is the alpha, the leader, but he doesn’t feel that way any longer. He had prayed that Keith would be able to pull him back from the brink, but his mate is distant, hostile even. They have both suffered but they’ll suffer more if they don’t mend their bond. It’s a solution that sounds easy in theory, but not so much so when Shiro realizes his mate has picked up some unsavory past times in his absence.
Tasked with finding and teaching fifty students with the potential to reach his caliber as a pilot, Shiro instead finds one who has the potential to surpass him. But first, he's got to get the scrawny delinquent to shape up and fly right.
On impulse Shiro shoved the low table out of the way, and drew his chair closer to Keith. He bent forward, elbows on his knees, and held out his hands, palm-up. Keith was already cornered—literally and figuratively, on so many levels—and Shiro wasn't about to make that sensation worse. But he could show he came unarmed.
After months on Central Command, Keith finds himself in a new prison: the home planet of the Galra. In a palace of intrigue, amid a strange race whose lives he's only beginning to understand, can Keith escape back to the Paladins? Or will the twisted, growing bond between him and the Galra he's met trap him in the palace walls?
