The first
of the plot revolves around. [[spoiler: She's Taiga Saejima's younger stepsister who has gone through hell three new playable characters starting from ''Yakuza 4''. A moneylender known as Katsuragi's pet assassin to see her brother one last time before "The Lifeline of Kamurocho." He's famous for helping those nobody else will, and uses strange tests for applicants in lieu of charging interest or collateral. Once an up-and-coming financier, he was betrayed by his intended execution. She was bank and left homeless, until he got caught in a literal rain of money related to the events of the first game. After some clever investing, he opened Sky Finance and became the man he is today. He's also sought out by Tanimura for friendly with the last 25 years, believing she was Tojo family and generally just a nice guy. He returns in ''[[VideoGame/YakuzaDeadSouls Dead Souls]]'' to witness and take part in fighting the last person who saw his father alive]].zombie outbreak, and in ''Yakuza 5'', where he opens a new branch of Sky Finance in Sotenbori only to discover the death of a colleague, and helps Haruka discover the truth behind it.



* TheAtoner: [[spoiler: She takes a bullet for Taiga in the climax, and since he never actually killed anyone and his hands were free of blood, she makes one last stand to kill Katsuragi herself since she had already gone off the deep end and killed many others at this point]].
* BigBrotherWorship: [[spoiler: To her stepbrother Saejima, to the point where she visited the prison where he was being held every day for 25 years, and was willing to take out a loan of ''100 million yen'' and kill members of the Shibata family in order to have a chance at freeing him/seeing him again]]. See IOweYouMyLife below.
* BreakTheCutie: Happened long before the game even started. She takes it better than most, but there's still something a little off about her.
* ChristmasCake: She's well into her thirties, but has never married.
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler: To be precise, in her brother's]].
* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler: After she's shot by Katsuragi, she stands defiant against him to let him know he's no longer in control of her, which suddenly triggers his VillainousBreakdown. He's left desperately pleading for his life before she ends it]].
* DudeMagnet: Wins the affection of Akiyama, and many men are drawn to her looks.
* FatalFlaw: She's told that she lets her raw emotions get the better of her, causing her to make poor choices and irrational decisions. [[spoiler: Naturally, after Kiryu tells her this, this is the reason she's captured shortly afterward]].
* FauxActionGirl: Despite being revealed as [[spoiler: an assassin for Katsuragi after killing members of the Shibata family]], she's a very demure woman who's constantly on the run and need of protection. [[spoiler: She gets herself captured at the end in spite of Kiryu's advice, and aside from killing Katsuragi herself, anything that shows she's a dangerous person [[OffstageVillainy happens entirely off-screen]]]].
* FemmeFatale: She plays up this angle to [[spoiler: murder Katsuragi's targets]]. Countless characters also comment on her beauty.
* IdenticalStranger: What catches Akiyama's attention at first is her resemblance to his ex-girlfriend Eri.
* InksuitActor: Looks like an older version of her voice actress.
* IOweYouMyLife: This is the reason why she's so desperate to find [[spoiler: her brother Taiga. She needed a kidney transplant when she was younger, and a fifteen-year old Taiga sought out her lowlife biological father, who was a yakuza and wanted 30 million yen for it. Taiga gave up his dream of being a schoolteacher and fought thugs on the streets to get the money. It was then that Sasai found him and agreed to pay it off under the condition that Taiga join his family, which ultimately saved her life]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: Butterfly City, the opening song for the Japanese version.

* {{Protectorate}}: The bad guys are all out to get her, while all of the good guys are out to protect her.

* SatelliteCharacter: Almost everything about her character and her motives revolve around [[spoiler: her stepbrother]].
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler: For Taiga when Katsuragi tries to shoot him.]]
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler: With Katsuragi's men after her, Kiryu informs her of her FatalFlaw and tells her to stay put in New Serena while he goes on the streets to find her brother for her. He comes back shortly after to find that she ran off anyway, and is she shortly captured by Katsuragi's men. Granted, she went along with Akiyama and Tanimura but still separated from them. She doesn't live much longer after that]].
* WomanInWhite: Her outfit for most of her appearances is a white trenchcoat.
* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler:She's the step-sister of Taiga Saejima.]]

* TheAtoner: ArbitrarilyLargeBankAccount: It's not said exactly how much Akiyama made of his initial million, but it's enough for him to casually loan out tens of millions of yen to perfect strangers without charging interest or even usually bothering to collect.

* DarkIsNotEvil: Wears primarily black with a mauve blazer but is the nicest and goofiest of the main characters.
* DeadpanSnarker: Comes with being arguably the most lighthearted out of all the ''Yakuza 4'' protagonists.

* InksuitActor: Looks like an older FiveTemperamentEnsemble: Phlegmatic
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Despite being loaded and throwing around millions of yen at the drop of a hat, Akiyama apparently only limits his expendable income to what he gets from side quests and thugs.
* GuestFighter: His ''Dead Souls'' incarnation appeared as a DLC character for the Japanese
version of her voice actress.
''VideoGame/BinaryDomain''.
* IOweYouMyLife: This is GunsAkimbo: His preferred unique weapons in ''Dead Souls''. While lacking in firepower compared to the reason why she's so desperate others' weapons, his pistols have unlimited ammo just like the default sidearms.
* IdiotBall: He keeps his ''entire fortune'' in apparently an ''unlocked vault'' in his ''office'' instead of at a ''bank.'' Unsurprisingly [[spoiler:it ends up getting stolen by the police.]] Granted it's because he doesn't trust banks (he used
to find work for one that fired him after framing him for embezzling all of the stolen money from the first game) but still, it's a remarkably boneheaded thing to do.
** However, with the money he's throwing around for his business, and
[[spoiler: her brother Taiga. She needed a kidney transplant when she was younger, his reaction to said theft, and how he gets rid of it all without a fifteen-year old Taiga sought out her lowlife biological father, who was a yakuza problem in the end]], it's very likely he just doesn't care at all. [[spoiler: He has so much money, and wanted 30 million yen for it. Taiga gave up makes so much money, it's lost all value to him.]]
* InexplicablyAwesome: His martial arts skills are never touched upon. He just happens to be a world-class fighter, despite
his dream of background being a schoolteacher stock trader and fought thugs on the streets to get the money. It was then homeless guy. He can keep up with Kiryu who has spent years fighting and training.
* IShallTauntYou: Specializes in them to a greater degree than the rest of the cast, and has several for different situations, like while he's standing up or gloating over a downed foe.
* JackOfAllStats: With an emphasis on speed, since he's not squishy enough to be a FragileSpeedster. His individuals strikes may not hit very hard, but he does so many of them
that Sasai found him they add up quickly.
* {{Leitmotif}}:
** "Speed Star" in ''4''
** "Affected fight" in ''5''
* LauncherMove: Can perform air combos ''VideoGame/RivalSchools''-style in ''5''.
* LoanShark: A weird subversion: he loans out money with no interest
and agreed to pay it off under no collateral on the condition that Taiga join people pass a SecretTestOfCharacter. However, like regular loan sharks, he is very, very good at beating the crap out of people; in his family, case, though, it's usually either rival loan sharks or muggers looking to fleece ''him.''

* {{Protectorate}}: The bad NiceGuy: With a little shopping, his niceness can get to the point where half of Kamurocho's vendors and homeless guys are all will gladly help him out in a fight.
* PermaStubble: As a sign of how slovenly he can be.
* RagsToRiches: He was living on the streets after losing his job as a banker. Luckily, he was right near Millennium Tower when a bomb was set off on its 60th floor, and he managed

To that end, he sold off his business and returned to shoot him.living on the streets. [[spoiler:By the end of the game, however, he is planning to reopen his office and resume business.]]

* TrashOfTheTitans: He really can't keep an office clean without Hana around.
* UnclePennybags: The real reason he runs his loan business. He wants to give people money for free, he just wants to make sure they deserve it. He even says it himself, as in his page quote.
* WouldntHitAGirl: In one of the fifth game's substories, he encounters a group of schoolgirl bullies who try to pressure a girl into prostitution [[TeensAreMonsters so they can use the money to go party]]. When one of the girls calls
her of her FatalFlaw brother and tells her his gangster friends to stay put take care of him, Akiyama gladly takes his anger out on them instead, saying he has a thing against hitting girls.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He's only 32

His older appearance (despite being just three years older than the [[OlderThanTheyLook youthful looking]] Tanimura) may simply be that the stress of going bankrupt and living on the streets to find her brother for her.

New playable character number two debuting in ''Yakuza 4''. An ex-yakuza who infamously gunned down 18 yakuza in a noodle shop, and has spent 25 years in death row. After he learns he was set up, he breaks out of prison and returns to Kamurocho to find out what happened to his old family and why he was abandoned on that fateful night before the police catch up to him again. [[spoiler: He was set up to take the fall by Katsuragi of the Ueno Seiwa clan, who was the real killer.]] He is the oldest and strongest of the four protagonists, and by the game's end, he's brought back into the Tojo Clan and made the boss of the Saejima Family.

He also returns in ''Yakuza 5'', turning himself in for the events of the previous game, but near the end of his sentence, learns that there are forces out there trying to prolong it, and escapes once again. In ''Yakuza 6'', he returns to jail again to fulfill his previous sentence.

to:

!Kamurocho Residents

[[folder:Hana]]
!!! '''Voiced
* AnimalMotifs: The tiger. [[TigerVersusDragon Naturally, he and Kiryu end up fighting after they've barely spoken.]]
* BadassBaritone: Speaks with a low tone, courtesy of Creator/RikiyaKoyama.
* BadassGrandpa: He's in his fifties by 6, but age has not made him weak, and he's still built like a brick shithouse.
* BadassLongcoat: He's always wearing an beaten old coat.
* BadassInDistress: He's captured in the climax of ''Yakuza 4'' along with [[spoiler: his step-sister Yasuko. They catch up while Kiryu comes to their rescue]].
* BaldOfAwesome: As of ''5'', he's shaved off his hair.
* BarbarianLonghair: In ''4'' and ''5'''s imagination segments.
* TheBigGuy: He's the strongest guy of the bunch and one of the tallest.
* BigShutUp: When the crowd boos at him for not killing his first defeated opponent at a tournament deathmatch, then he gives them a touching speech about how murdering people traumatized him after the 1985 incident, and he sees his victims' dying faces every night in his dreams.
* BloodBrothers: To Goro Majima, stretching back to their early careers in the Sasai Family of the Tojo Clan.
** And seeing what Majima goes through in ''Yakuza 0'' to return to the Tojo Clan in case Saejima would eventually return, Majima is very fond of him.
* BootsOfToughness: When in civilian clothing he always has one. Gotta make sure those stomps to the face hurt.
* CelibateHero: To a degree. Saejima probably would if he could, but he has far more important things to do with what little time he has.
** He has a bit of a freak out when he sees Haruka. This is what tipped Kiryu off that he spent time in prison as, "you had the look of a guy who hadn't seen a woman in a long time".
** In ''Yakuza 5'', while he can win over the voluptuous Kaguya, he finds her to be more of a pain and doesn't express much affection for her. It's pretty much stated that their "private time" wasn't intimate, but rather spent talking about what his dreams and aspirations were. [[NotSoAboveItAll Not that it stops him]] from fantasizing about her in the hot springs and checking her out in air hockey.
* ChargedAttack: He can charge up his Finishing Moves to hit even harder.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: He's had a very long time to work on his natural strength in prison. Most of his fighting style revolves around his sheer muscle, and he's the only playable character outside of Kiryu in ''0'' and ''Kiwami'' to be able to pick up motorcycles and smash people with them.
** It gets even more absurd in ''Yakuza 5'' where one of his HEAT actions has him punch the ground so hard it knocks opponents off their feet by causing a ''MINI-TREMOR.'' [[Videogame/TheKingOfFighters Goro Daimon]] would be proud. There's also a scene where he nearly gets run over and briefly ''stops a moving car'' with his bare hands before rolling out of the way.
* CombatPragmatist: Weapons, walls, enemies in any conceivable position... if it exists, Saejima has a finisher for it.
* TheComicallySerious: His revelations in ''Yakuza 4'' involve him pulling out a small log out of nowhere and chiseling it into a small statue in mere seconds. ''5'' also has him lay the smackdown on some punks while dressed as Santa in a substory.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Black shirt, pale green tailcoat, snowfield camouflage trousers, black military boots and he is on the light side of the characters in the entire series.
* DesperationAttack: Saejima gets more and better finishers at critical health.
* DuelingPlayerCharacters: [[spoiler: He faces off against Kiryu after he broke out of Okinawa Penitentiary No.1. They fight each other again in the fifth game to lure out the game's mastermind. Notably, for their rematch, the player has control of which character they want to use, although it has no effect story-wise]].
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: During the events of ''4'', he had long hair that reached his shoulders. After going back to prison in ''5'' to make amends for the past, he has his head shaved.
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: A lot has changed in the 25 years since Saejima was put away.
* FiveTemperamentEnsemble: Choleric
* FriendToAllChildren: For a self-admitted bad guy and convicted mass murderer, Saejima sure has a soft spot for kids.
* GentleGiant: He gives this vibe, especially in ''Yakuza 5'', since he softened up quite a bit.
* GoodOldWays: Saejima's general reaction to just about everything, especially the state of the yakuza.
* GrievousHarmWithABody: The man has no issues with picking enemies up and using them to hit other punks.
* HiddenDepths: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxrDT9Egy2s He's a pretty good singer.]]
** When he was a young boy, he wanted to become a school teacher. Needless to say, that didn't end up happening.
* HomelessPigeonPerson: Saejima himself as well as most of his friendly contacts.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: He sports one.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: [[spoiler: Saejima's beatdown/torture of Kugihara in ''5''. It's brutal, bloody, but feels so good.]]
* LargeHam: He holds nothing back when he sings, but have him do "Lively Interjections" on ''Rouge Of Love'' and he takes it UpToEleven.
--> '''Saejima''': '''''EVERYBODY SAY ROUGE OF LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE!'''''
* {{Leitmotif}}:
** "Massive Fire" in ''4''
** "Hailstorm" in ''5''
* LimitBreak: His Tiger Essence Climax HEAT attacks in ''5'':
** Tiger Essence of Bashing: Saejima leaps into the air while taking hold of his opponent and plants them with a [[WrestlerInAllOfUs modified flying Tombstone Piledriver.]]
** Tiger Essence of Blitzing: Saejima charges his way through a group of enemies ala a football player before grabbing the last man, tossing him upwards and slamming him down.
** Tiger Essence of Shockwave: A massive GroundPound which knocks all nearby enemies off their feet.
* LivingLegend: Convicted of killing 18 yakuza in a noodle shop has made him one in the eyes of the underworld. Unfortunately, it also paints a huge target on his back.
* ManlyMenCanHunt: His unique sidequest in ''5'' has him take up hunting, with his ultimate goal being to hunt an extremely dangerous bear.
* ManlyTears: During his speech to the crowd chanting for blood in the Underground Coliseum.
* MightyGlacier: He's the slowest of the main playable characters, but can deal a ton of damage. When Kiryu tries to grab a [[GiantMook heavyset sumo-type enemy]] he gets pushed away instantly, but Saejima can actually grab these guys like any other mook (with a certain upgrade) which is a testament to his monstrous strength.
* PromotionToParent: After his mother died, Saejima had to be responsible both his own and his stepsister Yasuko's welfare, as his father had left the family early on.
* PunnyName: His first name "Taiga" [[CaptainObvious sounds like Tiger]].
* RatedMForManly: Aside from being a hulking giant and stone-cold badass, there's also Saejima's way of capturing Revelations - since he doesn't have a camera, he carves elaborate sculptures out of chunks of wood. With a chisel, in a few seconds, while roaring.
** Unfortunately, this also means he's too manly to try karaoke or woo some hostesses. In ''Yakuza 4'', anyway.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Goh Hamazaki, Kiryu, Yasuko, Shun, Majima and Masayoshi's blue. He changes to blue in ''5''.
* RememberTheNewGuy: He's actually Majima's best friend and they were a huge influence on each other in their early yakuza days. Funny that Majima never mentioned him. Probably due to [[spoiler: Maijima's unwilling role in Saejima's frame up]].
* TheScapegoat: [[spoiler: He didn't actually kill anyone during the hit of 1985. All of the revolvers he was given were loaded with experimental rubber bullets. Isao Katsuragi shot everyone at the shop to pave the way for his own promotion, and had his own blood-brother shoot him to make him look like a survivor.]]
* ShamingTheMob: The mob in this case being [[spoiler: rich and bloodthirsty spectators of a deathmatch tournament he's forced to participate in. He lectures them on what it's really like to kill someone.]] This is combined with WhatMeasureIsAMook and TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
* TattooedCrook: A tiger, [[TigerVersusDragon contrasting with Kiryu's dragon]] when they fight.
* TookALevelInKindness: Compared to his initial personality, he's far more mellow in ''5''.
* UnskilledButStrong: Saejima's fighting style is based around brute force more than finesse. Even his sword style is unrefined, but considering how absurdly strong he is he doesn't NEED to be fancy.
* WrittenInAbsence: In ''Dead Souls'', his absence is explained as being on business for the Tojo Clan in China.
