Actually, Star-Crossed is one of my favorite stories, and I had no experience with anything it was based on -- no Mass Effect, no Halo, no whatever else was in there. I knew Gryphon, Kei, and Vision, and that was all I needed. I can't say I pictured the characters exactly as they look on the Wikipedia page, but I had enough of an idea to enjoy in the story. So I think you do a pretty good job with giving background.
