BiographyEdit

Life up to 2001Edit

Kenji Kasen was born in Japan and moved with his older siblings Asuka and Kazuki to the United States joining the Yakuza.

2001Edit

In 2001 Kenji opened his casino, Kenji's Casino, in Torrington, the same place his brother Kazuki had owned his casino. Kenji joins his sister in becoming the co-leader of the Yakuza and begins to employ Claude on advice from his sister. He has Claude prove himself, despite Asuka's assurances, and, due to his fierce belief in loyalty, has him break Kanbu out of prison.

Kenji, impressed with Claude's ability, has him collect three sports cars and deposit them in a garage, ambush a deal between the Colombian Cartel and the Uptown Yardies, collect briefcases of protection money and kill many members of the Uptown Yardies who were selling the drug SPANK.

Claude later begins to work for media mogul Donald Love who employs him to kill Kenji whilst posing as a member of the Colombian Cartel, driving a Cartel Cruiser, in order to drive down property prices.
