Relationship to other characters[]


Michael receives a wedgie by Geoffrey. This marks him as the inferior twin, or as Liquid Snake would say

"Yes, twins, but we're not ordinary twins... we're twins linked by cursed genes. Les enfants terribles. You're fine. You got all the old man's dominant genes. I got all the flawed, recessive genes. Everything was done so that you would be the greatest of his children. The only reason I exist is so they could create you."
