Kuto led a life full of disdain. He was always teased and ridiculed by others, and he never felt like he fit in anywhere. When he was 18, he decided to leave his hometown in Mexico and start fresh somewhere new. He ended up in the small town of Tepoztlan, where he found a job as a janitor at the local school.

Something about the cap spoke to Kuto, and he decided to keep it as a reminder that there were other places in the world where people might accept him for who he is.
