"A man's supposed to draw their path with their own blood, not others'. If you need me to show you, then come at me."
As the adopted son of the patriarch of Aizawa-Gumi, Katashi Tairyu effectively grew up as a Yakuza-to-be, getting involved with the family's business and streetside operations in Southside Town from a relatively young age. Reputable within Aizawa-Gumi's territory as a fierce brawler employing techniques learned from his adoptive father's self-fashioned martial style, who nonethless carries himself with a measure of honor, and is expected by many to become the successor of Patriarch Aizawa. Everything changed, however, when an arm of Southside Syndicate that was payrolling The Family from the shadows ordered Patriarch Aizawa to assist them in darker criminal activities. The Patriarch's refusal cost him his own life, and the Family quickly saw a radical change in leadership, with The Syndicate's will being enforced within, and Tairyu himself has been forced to step in and stay in line, under the threat on the life of his sister. Now he begrudgingly follows the order of the new family head instituted by the Syndicate to maintain a measure of Aizawa-Gumi's public face, even as he searches for an opportunity to free his kidnapped sister and retain his adoptive father's honor.
