Chapter 3: The Connection

ZKX Yakuza - Komon

The last time we met, we introduced you to the Oyabun and the Saiko-Komon.

The Saiko-Komon, once exiled and forced into hiding, have been waiting in the shadows for the right moment to make their move. They knew the road ahead would be perilous, but they joined forces with the Oyabun in the fight for freedom.

But they can't do it alone. Enter our next character, the Komon.

Character Biography

In every story, a character binds the story, and in this one, it's the Komon.

Once known for their memes and engaging content, the Komons' were an interesting group. Before 2029, they made crypto accessible to all; but then they were banished from society and never heard from again.

It was almost like being eviscerated, as though their lives had ended. They could no longer talk about their work, reach out to people, or find a safety net in any job.

One of the things that kept them alive during those last ten years was their ability to keep their ears to the ground and find out what was happening. This led them on the path to finding Hatsunode. To their surprise, they found remnants of the old CT and connected with some Saiko Komons.

Meanwhile, the Saiko-Komon had been approached by the Oyabun to find the lost nodes—and bring back the decentralized world. They had been in touch with the Komons for a few years through Hatsunode and reached out to them to enlist their help for a special task.

As the Komon and Saiko-Komon join forces, there is a lot hanging on them. Do you think they make it till the end?
