Keiko Shotozumi has led an interesting life. She was born to Hanzo Shotozumi, the leader of the Shotozumi-gumi in Seattle. Being a woman, she had no place within the yakuza organization. She instead leveraged her criminal connections to jump head-long into the shadows of Seattle, becoming a shadow runner under the name Kiku.

Most of her time spent a Kiku is unknown, speaking highly to her professionalism. However, about 5 years ago she returned to her father, who welcomed her with open arms. This has led many to wonder how she managed to reconcile with him. People have speculated that she was training all these years, others have said that she sold out her team to him, and there are odder theories that are better left unsaid.

In the years since, she has managed to show her father the value of “non-traditional” assets such as women, metahumans, and shadow runners. Despite her father’s strongly conservative values, he has begun to see the wisdom in his daughter’s perspectives. She is the only person that has ever been able to crack his tough outer shell, and that has some of the Shotozumi-gumi worried.
