* In the first episode, we see the memory of Caine successfully going through all the [[SecretTestOfCharacter Secret Tests of Character]] to join the Shaolin Monastery and is the last boy standing in front of the head monk. The monk notes that Caine is only half-Chinese and the order has never inducted a child who was not pure Chinese. When he then says, "There's always a first time," you can't help but smile at such wisdom that transcends such prejudice for something better.
