The Kenran-kai are the worst parts of the Seattle Yakuza. During Crash 2.0, a former Yakuza oyabun named Isao Nishidon attempted to take control of the Seattle Yakuza. His attempt failed miserably, and rather than submit to punishment, he decided to commit seppuku. Those that were left of Nishidon’s gumi were allows to live with the stain of their leader’s dishonor. Some of the Shigeda-gumi members were also brought in, and the Kenran-kai was born.
Despite their ramshackle origin, and being stuck with Puyallup as their turf, oyabun Tomizawa takes his responsibility very seriously. The Kenran-kai are working very hard to win the trust of the Puyallup peoples, because their support will be critical to the overall success of the Kenran-kai.
Because of their location and lack of numbers, the Kenran-kai recruit heavily from those people most yakuza organizations would ignore: specifically women and metahumans. This has made the organization the most diverse and modern of the yakuza clans.
