Izo “Lucky” Hanzo – Male Human Street Samurai

Shadowrun Backstory:

As a child, Izo was always in trouble. Every school he attended he was constantly getting into fights. Most people thought of him as a thug and a hoodlum. He didn’t disagree with the description. Then one day he was saved by a group of samurais. They took him in and trained him as a samurai. Now he uses that training to keep his head up and stay out of trouble.

Personality:

Izo’s philosophy is that trouble will eventually find you, so it’s best to make it find you by not causing it in the first place. He’s friendly toward those who deserve it and wise enough to know when someone doesn’t.

Appearance:

Izo has a mean build, with a buzzed head and a scary scar running from the top of his forehead to his nose. He’s never without his samurai robes.

Start of Character:

In Seattle, Izo still seeks more training. He wants to learn the way of the samurai. He hopes that the “spirit” of his ancestors will guide him to learn their ways.

A product of Aztechnology’s elite education, Daedalus grew up in one of Seattle’s nicer neighbourhoods. Everything she ever wanted was at her fingertips.
