Melanin (/ˈmɛlənɪn/ (listen); from Greek: μέλας melas, "black, dark") is a broad term for a group of natural pigments found in most organisms.

Melanin is produced through a multistage chemical process known as melanogenesis, where the oxidation of the amino acid tyrosine is followed by polymerization.

The word "tyrosine" is from the Greek tyrós, meaning cheese, as it was first discovered in 1846 in the protein casein.

polymerization is a process of reacting monomer molecules together in a chemical reaction to form polymer chains or three-dimensional networks.

The melanin pigments are produced in a specialized group of cells known as melanocytes.

As a halvsie, I am half white and half Japanese. My white side is a primer base. My blood is French-Welsh, a neutral hue, to which was added Sourthern Honshu Asian. Hiroshima, specifically. Color wise, I tan more than I am tan. It’s olive skin.

The midpoint between two islands, both off the coast of continents, a safe distance from mainlands as to facilitate sniffs and scoffs in peace.

Setting out from each island were emassaries to a clean slate. My moms side of the family arrived 13 generations ago. I’m a yonsei paternally.
