    I have always found him the more interesting for it.


For being half English? What does it add to him? I was thinking maybe I missed an important story where his English heritage was a driving plot element. Did I? I definitely may have. Some sort of "Woe is me for I am accepted by neither side - but I shall have my comeuppance" type of tale?

In this thread I'm mostly concerned with the Mandarin as an archetype. I don't know how to think of a Chinese/English amalgamation in archetypal terms. Is there a way to do it? Has any writer done it?
