NPC ~Played by Yule
Zelo is a quiet type of person. He tends to give people the silent treatment and tends to only speak out when it deals with his younger sister. He is very protective over his sister because she’s all he has left. After going through the military he has seen many things, death being a lot of the things he has seen. This is why he is so quiet. He thinks about many things and is a mystery to many people. After being hired by Asami Takahashi he has changed the way he thinks about some stuff. Such as the Yakuza, he never thought that he would end up there but his skills are suitable for the Yakuza life style and he tends to use those abilities to his advantage. Due to the issues that Zelo had growing up with his family he learned to be self-sufficient in many ways. He also learned how to take care of his sister. Zelo also learned to fight thanks to his parents history. Zelo tends to play strong, though he is physically, his mental strength is sub-par compared to his physical. He lost most of what he had when he went into the military and he is trying very hard to get it all back.

Ally: Hayi Lee
When Zelo was a small boy his parents were always busy. He was also busy taking care of his younger sister. Ever since they were little they had stuck together like glue. Their parents were too busy to even tuck them into bed at night. So Zelo grew up for the both of them and took care of Hayi. By the time Zelo was ten he realized why his parents were so busy. His father was a drug dealer and his mother was a human trafficker. This would explain why the kids were never allowed to hang out with their parents. It would also explain why there were many young crying women getting pushed into the basement. Zelo decided to keep him knowing about this a secret from his parents and his sister. By that time the parents realized the kids were getting bigger and decided to have them take fighting classes so they would be out of their hair. Zelo took boxing, kendo, and karate classes while Hayi took jui jitsu and kendo. Zelo excelled in his classes and soon grew to love fighting. He also watched as his little sister took her classes, and saw she was very good at what she was taking. They had their Kendo class together but they were in different sections based on age. He enjoyed the time he spent with his sister. Soon they were taking adult classes in these fighting styles because they excelled. After a year they were some of the strongest kids in their area. Zelo taught Hayi to use her strength only when needed though, as Zelo only used his to fight for his sister, though she never knew about that. One night their father was having a tough time getting all the money he need for the drugs he had. At this point in time Zelo was eleven and he was the quiet kid most knew him to be. Zelo was getting some water for Hayi late at night because she was thirsty. As he went downstairs he passed his father in the kitchen and his father was so stressed that he needed to his frustration out. Zelo’s father struck out at him but do to Zelo’s training he blocked his father’s hit and then grabbed his right arm and twisted it behind his father. “You will not hit me because of your failing drug business father. I suggest you spend this time trying to find your extra money.” With that Zelo let go of his father and returned to his task of getting his sister water. After getting the cup Zelo headed back upstairs, climbing the spiral stair case, their house was huge due to their parents’ businesses. After that his father hardly came around him. The years passed and Zelo had decided to go into the military. When he was 17 he sat his sister down and told her he was going to go to base training. His sister hated this idea but a week later he left for base. After that Zelo lost contact with his sister. He sent her letters every week but he never got a reply. Zelo lost all hope of seeing his sister again, she probably hated him for leaving. Zelo spent two years with the military and entered the navy seals and the green berets. After his first year Zelo had an accident and they had to preform brain surgery. While the militant surgeons were working on him they put a chip in his brain, this chip caused him to preform greater in physical and mental/intellectual challenges. After another year he was released. One night he was wondering around the town and saw a girl with the same face as Hayi. He was surprised and ran after the girl. It was weird because the girl had pinkish, purple hair and she was so grown up. Once he grabbed her shoulder he saw it really was her and pulled her into a hug. They never separated after that. Months later they even got a job under the same woman, Asami Takahashi. Zelo was hired as her assistant but on the clan side. At first he was confused but then he realized she was a Chairman in the Yakuza. He honestly didn’t mind being part of this business as long as he had Hayi by his side.
