Kousuke Yamada. Kyodai. Samurai. Business Owner. Family man. Fixer. There are many worlds Kousuke lives in, and all of them are dear to his heart in some manner. His sworn brothers in blood hold his soul and provide him a camaderie and allow him a jocularity he cannot show anywhere else but in the world of Men amongst Men. He is a sworn follower of his Oyabun, another oath sworn in the ceremony of Sakazuki, and thus his Oyabun holds his life. Through his Family he has been graced the chance to be a businessman, and he runs the hostess club in Fairmount he has been assigned with a keen eye and a shrewd mind. This club holds his pride. He is a loving and proud father to two fine young boys, and his wife is a rare beauty in his eyes, and together they hold his heart. And, most importantly to the various runners that frequent Seattle, Kousuke Yamada is a pipeline to the strict, scowling hall of the Kanaga-gumi. It is he (and a few others, but none as often as he) who dispenses out jobs the Gumi cannot handle themselves without losing giri, and thus must abide (his brothers would say suffer) the presence of runners. And to them, he gives his charm and skill.
