Characters: Jet Set Radio
It should be noted that characters in Jet Set Radio are given little-to-no-backstory, and when they are, it's usually just implicit. Any backstory you hear about should be taken with a grain of salt, unless it's given a source from the games or manuals.It's also noteworthy that despite what people think, neither game really has a "main character." There might be characters a bit more integral to the plot, but each one is given just as much importance depending on how much you play as them.
