Kosuke Tomizawa was handed a pretty terrible hand the day he began oyabun of the Kenran-kai. However, like any good yakuza oyabun, he has made the best of things. He takes his responsibility to reform and expand the Kenran-kai very seriously, and works hard to win the trust of the residents of Puyallup.

Kosuke allows metahumans and women to join his ranks, ostensibly as an effort to show that the Kenran-kai aren’t in Puyallup to dominate the district but rather to represent its interests. As a result, Kosuke has one of the largest clans in the city under his thumb. However, the majority of these people are outsiders, untrained and unprepared in the event of a major coup.

So Kosuke sits tight, expanding his holdings and biding his time for the moment to bring the Kenran-kai to a position of power. Many believe that Kosuke could be convinced to represent the “New Way” – a movement within the Yakuza to embrace magic and metahumans, and to purge the traditional yakuza prejudices and practices. Tomizawa is still very traditional, and very hardline, but he can’t be picky. It is possible that one of his kobun may attempt to take power from him if he won’t espouse the “New Way” philosophies.
