"It's like I'm assisting suicide! Don't hate me. Hate your weakness!"

A descendant of the cursed Yagami bloodline, Iori is hardly what one would call a happy person...or even very nice. He wields flames similar to Kyo Kusanagi's, but a pact made by the Yagamis with the Orochi in ancient history has left their lineage tainted; A Yagami's flames are now purple, and hurt the user when brought forth. Iori subscribes fully to the rivalry between the Kusanagis and Yagamis, and would like nothing more than to kill Kyo. Iori enjoys playing in a band, one of the few things he actually does to relax. The rest of the time, he is a brooding, angry type who will often lash out at those nearby, and he has been known to kill or severely injure his teammates if his team loses in a tournament. His fighting skill and his flames make for an excellent combination that places him amongst the best fighters in the world. Due to his Orochi-tainted blood, Iori may fall into a "Riot of the Blood", and become feral. If anything, this makes him extremely savage, and even more dangerous to most opponents. Regardless, Iori may well be more important to the world than people would think.
