Concept

A culturally Japanese but ethnically white Yakuza flunky. Born inside a Japanacorp, but left adrift when his family was downsized, Ice Hawk fell in with Yakuza, who see him as a valuable deniable asset. They wiped his sin and paid for his 'ware, and use him as a catspaw. In between work for the Yakuza, Ice Hawk has to support himself, and instead uses his talents for shadowrunning.

Tropes

Duty Above All Things Ice Hawk defines himself by his loyalty to his Kobun.

I Just Want To Fit In As a member of one of the few white families in a Japanacorp, Hawk puts considerable effort into adhering to the codes and techniques of what he percieves to be his culture. Martial arts, fancy swords and assorted Japanese tack. Such fun.

Bushido Isn't Dead Ice Hawk is a professional runner, and will do almost anything provided that it is a part of the assignment given to him by his superiors... But outside of those restrictions, Ice Hawk will act with honour, integrity and compassion where possible. The Context outweighs the Act.

Hooks

Notable Qualities

Graceful, Like a Dancer: Ice Hawk is catlike and a natural athlete.

I've got Special Eyes: Ice Hawk has natural night vision, which is handy for low light, but does poorly in glare.

Terrified and Prejudiced: Ice Hawk is disdainful of wageslaves, rotting away as corporate playthings, and he is terrified of ghouls. They're freaky.

Pretty Samurai, For a White Guy: Ice Hawk is for all intents and purposes culturally Japanese, he was raised speaking the language, has a deep, abiding love of his Katana, and reveres his Yakuza family. Unfortunately, being Caucasian marks him forever as an outsider to his Yakuza family, and it makes almost everyone around him think he's some weird Weeb poser.

Too Stubborn to be Magic'd: A rough encounter with a powerful mind-magic using spirit has left him inherently resistant to magic

Backstory

Born Andrew Parker, Ice Hawk was a former corporate kid, his father worked in Mitsuhama, until he didn't, and the whole family pursued other options, like poverty. Ice Hawk had a passion for martial arts, but when his father lost his job, they couldn't afford the fancy Dojo he'd been learning at. Or any Dojo.

So he spent a lot of his time spying on his former Dojo,trying to learn, and then practicing what he'd seen. He was caught, several times, and chased off, until one day he stood his ground and fought, and was beaten to a bloody pulp. But he impressed the master at the Dojo, and was allowed to continue learning there, in exchange for manual labor (cleaning the dojo, washing the uniforms, general maintenance).

Ice Hawk's family life continued to deteriorate, and so he began to spend more and more time at the dojo, which happened to be Yakuza affiliated. As he grew more distant from his blood family, he got closer to the Yakuza family, until finally his mother killed herself, and he gave himself to the Yakuza entirely.

It was the Yakuza who then burned his SIN and paid for his cyber, with the notion that he would work as an operative for them, doing the jobs that they could not be seen to do. They don't need him often, but when they do, they expect him to obey their every command, and he is more than willing to do so. Ice Hawk is not actually Yakuza, they do not consider him a member of their organization, because he's white. They would also be insulted if he ever claimed to be. They don't pay for his lifestyle or provide him with any kind of salary, so he runs in the shadows. For Ice Hawk it kills two birds with one stone, he earns money to support himself, and pay for upgrades and equipment, while at the same time honing the skills he'd use in the service of the Yakuza.

For Ice Hawk, being a member of the Yakuza is his greatest aspiration, but that's exceptionally unlikely to happen. Despite that he's fiercely loyal to his Kobun (Yakuza family) in the face of the open disdain many in the Kobun have for him. He sees the Yakuza as having saved him either from poverty or following in his father's footsteps to being a disposable wage slave. He does not realize the irony in instead being a disposable asset for the Yakuza.
