Hollis Wordsworth MasonEdit
He was a conservative and religious person, distrustful of the city folk, considering it a cesspool of immorality and crime (indicating that he was blind to the dark side of rural life marked by drunk husbands and domestic violence). When Hollis Jr. was born, he was honored to see him given his own name and had a special concern for his moral upbringing.
Hollis had his own dreams for his son and had prepared for him a future on his farm. However, because of the amount of guilt, pressure, and recrimination, his son decided to move with his family to New York. They had a lot of arguments because of this decision and predicted poverty and moral ruination for his son.
These warnings gave passion to his son and he was proud that he managed to keep his family above the poverty line. The moral legacy marked young Hollis's character and sense of right and justice, enabling him to be a cop.
Ingrid Renata VeidtEdit
Ingrid Renata Veidt is the mother of the superhero turned supervillain Adrian Alexander Veidt.
Mr. Gorsky was a neighbor of Neil Armstrong when he was little. When he landed on the moon he mumbled to himself, wished Mr. Gorsky good luck.

On his landing on the moon, Armstrong allegedly remembered that event and said "Good luck Mr. Gorsky". For more information on this joke, see here
This legend is referenced in the movie introduction.
