  • Arlo’s father ran the most prominent gambling ring in all of Tokyo, with bets ranging from classic table games to gruesome and violent fighting rings that more often than not ended in a hospital visit or a fatality.

    he grew up attached to his fathers waist most of the time, not by any choice of his own, his father was obsessed with him taking over his enterprise when he comes of age, so it was imperative that he learn all he could from watching the workings of this organization.

    but this wasnt the vision Arlo had for his future, the second he turned 18 Arlo fled from his father and moved his way to Osaka to try a life for himself as a corporate man, but his upbringing left a seed in him that he couldnt help but to nurture, so it wasnt long before Arlo found himself in the underground racing scene running from police and crashing cars very frequently.

    until one day his father had one of his goons track him down, this man had a message for Arlo, he had told him that his mother Lilly was sick and it wasnt looking good for her, his hate for his father was only outmatched by his love for his mother, so Arlo naturally moved back home to see her.

    immediately Arlo found himself back under the thumb of his father, after all what was he going to do? he needed to be there for his mother, a few years pass of Arlo doing his fathers bidding once again, before one day his mother’s health took a turn for the worst, while he was on an errand for his father in another city Arlo’s mother was rushed to the ER.

    Arlo with no means of getting back to see her in time tragically missed her last moments, this fueled his hatred for his father even further, and caused him to do something he would like to believe he regrets, but part of him finds solace in this act, while his father was doing his usual counting of his earnings after a weekly gambling night, Arlo had snuck up behind him and plunged a knife into the recess of his shoulder, digging in towards his neck, his father dropped to the floor and unable to speak other than a scarce few grunts just stared up at Arlo bleeding out, Arlo took one look at all the rolls of bills on the table and grabbed at them, knowing that he would need it.

    Arlo immediately after this fled, taking nothing of his own with him outside of some money and identification, he got on the first flight available to San Andreas and has no intention of looking back, although part of him will always be looking over his shoulder, not knowing if he finished the job or not.
