* In the storyline accompanying the ''Franchise/BattleTech'' game, [[MeaningfulName Kitsune]] [[LukeYouAreMyFatherKurita ]] is a gender inversion of this; mother dies, father lives on. He was secretly born to [[YamatoNadeshiko Omiko Kurita]], fathered by [[WarriorPrince Victor Davion]]. Both their families and realms they ruled were [[StarCrossedLovers traditionally enemies]] but found a [[EnemyMine mutual greater enemy]] in the [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Clans]] at the time. During a summit to discuss the Clan threat, the two took a shine to each other, and it blossomed into an illicit romance over time. Omi was later killed by an assassin hired by Victor's treacherous sister, and he thought her gone forever... until Kitsune came back years later, already a man and making a name for himself, and declaring to the whole Inner Sphere his true parentage. A cabal of reactionary Draconis hardliners were disgusted to learn their prospective PuppetKing was "tainted" with Davion blood, and [=FedSun=] hardliners painted Omiko as some Kurita harlot who seduced and corrupted gallant Victor. Victor himself? He was just elated to see ''some'' legacy of his romance with Omi survive. Omi chose "Kitsune" for the boy's name, in honor of his paternal grandfather, First Prince Hanse "[[MagnificentBastard The Fox]]" Davion.[[note]]"Kitsune" is japanese for "Fox"[[/note]]
