    Japan: a peaceful, serene country, or that’s what it seems. In Japan most urban areas are littered with Yakuza, you never know when to feel safe.

    The Yakuza have existed for years, but in this day and age they are becoming much more widespread and popular, taking over the underground scene in Japan. These Yakuza are ruthless gang members, and soon they will spread all across Japan, no one will be safe.

    Ryota Takahashi.
    Age: 23.
    Height: 6’1.
    Physical Appearance: He has black hair similar to that of Shizuo Heiwajima from Durarara. He only has one eye, the lost eyes is covered by a bandage, though he often wears an eyepatch. He has a lean build and is decently tall.
    Defining Feature: His lost eye.
    Personality: He is someone who is not one to let you mess around with him and wouldn’t hesitate to start a fight or even kill. When hanging with his fellow Yakuza he can be pretty chill and laid back though. He is also sees himself as a bit of a womaniser.
    Clothing: He wears an all black suit, apart from his red tie, and as mentioned previously he wears a bandage to cover his lost eye, and sometimes an eyepatch.
    Occupation: Yakuza.
    Backstory: Ryota’s father was an alcoholic, who would often beat his poor mother. One day his dad gets more pissed than usual, going off on one and killing the woman. Ryota witnessed all of this, his dad then approached, getting right in the eye with the blade of the knife.
    Other Details: He is a smoker and drinks quite a lot too. This doesn’t help with his gambling addiction.

    Probably just gonna be chilling out, just to get a good introduction to the characters.
     
  6. Will there be options for other occupations like police(possibly crooked cop) or other,(businessman, politician, lawyer(possibly for yakuza), ect...)

    Yeah that’s why I put it there. It would be really cool to have cops and maybe even an undercover cop. The other ones you mentioned are choices as well.

    Name:
    Age: 21
    Height: 5'7"
    Physical Appearance: Ren has somewhat Pale skin and relatively long, smooth dull dark Blue hair that reaches his chin level. His body build is somewhat fit and fairly slim.
    Defining Features: He has hot Pink eyes and is mostly seen with a friendly smile on his face.
    Personality: Ren is mainly seen as a very kind and friendly individual, always happy to hang out with almost anyone and tries to act a bit like a gentleman, more so toward women. When it comes to business, he displays a more stoic persona and terrifyingly morbid personality, never afraid to get his hands dirty and makes people wonder how he can do all of this with that smile. His cruelty however only goes so far as he isn't above kidnapping or killing innocents just for the pleasure of it. His favorite type of music is the classics, but is happy with other types of the modern age.
    Clothing: His attire is a Black suit under a long white coat that he wears like a cape, a matching White fedora and wears a White turtleneck under his Black suit vest.
    Occupation: Yakuza
    Backstory: Ever since Ren was young, he and his parents lived a happy life, his mother always told him that if he kept smiling, the world would smile back and he took that lesson to heart. Some time after he turned 16, Ren discovered that his parents were murdered by one of the mafias that ran the street he lived in. Ren swore revenge on said mafia and decided to join one of his parents' killers' rivals so that he could climb the ranks and get his revenge, smiling his whole way through... and discovering that he likes the mafia job more than he thought.
    Extra Details: He doesn't smoke and only drinks on special occasions. Because of his friendly and gentlemanly persona, he has a small popularity with women.

    none yet.

  11. Decided to recycle an old OC and tweak them for this with a little more spice.

His favorite type of music is the classics, but is happy with other types of the modern age.

  13. Not that I know of, but if I may ask, will there be rival mafias who tend to go to turf wars with one another?

  14. I hope so. It would make a more interesting story as opposed to simply cops and robbers yakuza...

  15. And as depicted in Ren's backstory, half the reason he joined the mafia was out of something personal that I hope he'll get the chance to accomplish.

    Yeah Yakuza are seperated into families run by different people.

    It reminds me of 91 days, good backstory though.
    Ryota joined the Yakuza to earn a bit of money for him and his little brother and sister, who were dumped on his doorstep by his dad.

  17. I like to think the yakuza may have played a role whether directly or indirectly(doesn't matter which) in helping Hisato's family regain their lost reputation. Hisato joined out of respect and now wishes to climb the ladder.

    So who shall we have as hers of the families, shall I make one of them?

  19. Im not sure who would be heir... it would likely be an older middle-aged gentleman. considering the people who are leaders of the clans/head of the family are always going to be among the oldest respected members of their respective family(old guys). I doubt they would give those positions to a swag lookin twenty year old driving around in his pink lamborghini rockin that sweet purple suit... (I would ,but then again thats why i'm not a Yakuza clan leader...). anywho if someone wanted to create a clan leader I wouldn't object.

    (sorry for that lengthy joke...) though like I said... If someone was to be an heir they would likley be an older gentleman. Maybe a son of the current clan leader or an ambitious rising member. (my point is they can be related ,but they don't have to be)

    on a side note... It would potentially be interesting to see some jealousy. A rising ambitious member gradually earning the attention of the leader. So much so that the leader considers them a more suitable replacement over their own son?! would create some jealousy don't you think? bitter jealous son of former leader betrays clan? i'm not saying that should happen ,but it could make for interesting story...

  24. I don't mind, gives enough time to discuss what's gonna happen in the long run in terms of plots, stories, arcs etc.
