A combination of government assistance and scholarship programs perhaps?

If the school is well funded, then I'd assume they could afford various scholarships and discounts for students they feel really need the help. We know they gave Misha's parents a break since she was studying sign language.

How much does she get from government assistance then? I believe it shouldn't be THAT much, because there should be many more orphans around, but if it's stated she's not poor... She could even save up to travel around in Lilliy's route. I assume she began saving after Hisao enters Yamaku, because she developed much faster in this period, so this didn't leave much time to save up money.

Hang on...so Hanako's father is actually Sub-Zero and Scorpion killed her family in revenge for Subby killing Scorpion's family pre-MK1?

And how the fuck is Scorpion's angsty?

Maybe Hanako's family was rich, but she only got access to her inheritance when she turned 15?

Hanako's parents were members of an elite group of assassins who, after failing to execute one of their own who attempted to leave the organization, were hunted down and killed by their former colleague. The last words Hanako heard before she blacked out from the pain was the killer saying, "Ten years from now, if you still feel raw about this? Find me. I'll be waiting."
