Character history

Kazuki Kasen was born and raised in Japan with his younger siblings, Asuka and Kenji, later meeting his future wife Toshiko. He, at some point, moved to Liberty City in America and becoming the leader of the Yakuza. Kazuki began to lead the Yakuza in their attempts to increase their standing in the city, in particular due to the actions of Massimo Torini and the Sicilian Mafia, and bought a casino in Torrington, Staunton Island.

Kazuki, who married Toshiko in a pre-arranged marriage, neglects his wife and spends the majority of his time with his men. Toshiko, after hearing of Toni Cipriani destroying a Yakuza tank, hires him to destroy and humiliate Kazuki, first by having Toni steal a Yakuza munitions delivery and then destroy Kazuki's casino takings whilst being transferred. Toni later accompanies Toshiko to the opera before meeting Kazuki face to face on the top of his casino, killing him. After learning of her husbands death Toshiko, feeling remorse, commits suicide.


  • During the mission A Date With Death, Toshiko states that Kazuki is a samurai. Kazuki is likely to either be a descendent of a samurai or to follow the Bushido code practiced by the Yakuza, becoming a samurai by way of practice and nickname. The official title as a military nobleman was abolished during the Meiji Restoration during the nineteenth century.
