Mandana Bandana was the new kid in town. His parents fled from their homeland as they were wanted in a series of drug and arms related "incidents". These "incidents" were never spoke of in Mandana's presence, only whispered about behind closed doors when they believed Mandana to be asleep or not listening.
And so now they were here. In suburbia.
Mandana was different from the other kids at school. He had an accent and he dressed differently. He always wore coordinating headbands (bandanas of course) to match his outfits. He knew the importance of style. He knew that money made the world go around. So he looked "money".
