Okay that sounds like it will work. Let me pitch my plan to you and see what you think.
His mother was the one with psionic abilities, which she kept a secert,
and after having her son , Saeren (pronounced sair-in, like from mass effect.)
she left him with his father. once his father relized his gift he decided to keep it
a secert in hopes of keeping his son safe. Thus no chip. Think it works?
I change it a bit if it doesn't like maybe he did get chipped, on his
upper arm, and he just always wore something over it.
