Jon "Deuce" Spade

Yakuza Assassin


The bulky 200lb dark figure before you stands 6’2" tall, black hair with a hint of silver streaks frames his face and ties back into a small pony tail. Green emerald eyes glisten and almost glow from certain angles. A subtle scar runs from his forehead down through his right eye to his jawline. His nationality looks one of European. He wears a black duster that hides the fact that his right arm is entirely chrome if it wasn’t for the glint visible from his wrist and hand. His left hand is gloved and a tiny tattoo though indistinguishable on his wrist. A bulky dark maroon jacket underneath. Grey cargo pants and black combat boots finish up his ensemble. A flap of material cut out of the cargo pants barely covers a rectangular patch on his right thigh, where in certain light a glint of metal can be seen underneath.

Jon has been a critical “Asset” to the Yakuza over the last 10 years. They utilize him in many clandestine ultra secret wetwork operations, given his extensive modifications. It is unusual for a gaijin to raise to such ranks within the organization, but the natural Italian has a special place among the Yakuza Bosses in Japan for why is unknown. Prior to that there is little known about Jon and his whereabouts. He refuses to talk of any of it, and actually remembers little himself. There actually is zero record of his existence anywhere on the data nets or hard copy. For all intents and purposes Jon is a ghost in the system. His Yakuza caretakers call him “Asset”, though his friends (what few he has) call him ‘Deuce’. Some think this is because of his cold blooded style of leaving two bullets to the front temporal lobe of each of his targets. His so called ‘calling card’ If you need to make sure someone disappears call Deuce, and he’ll make sure to put two bullets in their head. The first one will cost you, the second one is free of charge.

Deuce is battle-hardened. He has seen the worst and darkest places this world has to offer. He is generally very quiet, though this is not a result of shyness, but he is continuously observing and calculating his next moves with a sharp killer instinct. Observing every individual, every tactical situation, determining exit points, weapon firing positions, and ultimately individual threat levels. Do not let your level rise in his eyes, for he will have no qualms about sending you to an early and probably well deserved grave. The severe pain he suffers from causes these tendencies to get even worse. Though when on his medication, he loosens up and has even been known to smile.

Recently Deuce has been forced to flee Japan as a job went horribly wrong. He left most of his possessions behind and fled to Seattle. His Yakuza Overlords telling him to lay low in North America. Thus the few contacts he was able to scrap up within the Seattle have helped him get by. Especially to cope with his addiction to pain meds. Deuce frequently has severe pain and immuno deficiency as a result of his extensive high-grade modifications. This along with years of unknown trauma, have caused him to be a bit of an enigma in social situations. He has been known to kill individuals for no cause other than ‘they were bothering me.’ This has caused Deuce trouble in the past and his coping with his mental instability still gets the best of him from time to time.
