Character Summary


who broke down crying in white gymnasiums naked and trembling before the machinery of other skeletons,
who bit detectives in the neck and shrieked with delight in policecars for committing no crime but their own wild cooking pederasty and intoxication,
who howled on their knees in the subway and were dragged off the roof waving genitals and manuscripts,
who let themselves be fucked in the ass by saintly motorcyclists, and screamed with joy,
who blew and were blown by those human seraphim, the sailors, caresses of Atlantic and Caribbean love

— HOWL, by Allen Ginsberg

Taiga has an addictive personality that he turns to drinking, gambling, and sometimes opiates. He’s shrewd; a good businessman, you might call him. Arrogant as fuck, you might also call him. Both are equally true. Whether he has a right to be arrogant remains to be seen, though he is by all rights an intellectual. He is not a milquetoast; anyone who buys into the idea of him as a fop has never seen his cunning, never been on the wrong end of his ambition. He's not a bully—it's too sophisticated. He is not in a habit of making enemies, either. He knows the value of friendly thoughts.

Abilities: Familiarity with weapons and instruments of torture. He could tell you a gun’s make and model by hearing it fire. Give him a gun or a bomb and he can take it apart or put it back together, no exceptions

Character In-Depth

• How I Became Who I Am •

Taiga was born into a rural, middle-class Japanese family. His mother and father are Kazuo (Father) and Shouko (Mother) Hisoka. He has four elder brothers (Kenta, Daiki, Shotaro, and Makoto), all grown. Each has wives and families and white collar jobs, the youngest, Daiki, still a salaryman. Taiga was invited to his wedding, but he declined. Taiga often says if he had their lives he would kill himself.

By the age of sixteen he was dabbling in serious gambling. He remembers many scenes from that life with a great deal of fondness. He remembers how his life seemed so linear then, a straight path to the top.

She was glaring at him from across the table, fingers itching at the cards's edge. He found something perversely erotic about the light in her hazel eyes as they gleamed with fear. He was at home in this, more than he'd ever felt before: the tobacco smoke and alcohol burn of nighttime, the cards laid down under a bare bulb, coy women and secret smiles, the ever rising stakes. She was something different.

He put down his cards and smiled, too late to pay for his tell.

But it was not the straight path he imagined as a teen. Thinking he was being recruited as a card shark for Invidia, on the day that was to be his debut, he was instead enslaved by Gula, Kairos’s prostitution ring.

That’s when he met him.

Cortez was a demon, and like his namesake he upset the balance of power in Taiga’s conquered mind. He humbled the young man and taught him lessons everyone should learn, and lessons no one should teach. Love is not a word they exchange often, but perhaps it’s an emotion they can feel—and if they do feel it, they feel it for each other.

While he was Cortez’s number one escort and right-hand man, Taiga became increasingly aware of his maturation. He’s too smart not to know that one day, he’ll no longer be a charming young man, just as he realized he was no longer a fresh-faced boy, ripe for the defiling. What happens on the day aging shows on his young skin is anyone’s guess, but it made him jealous and exacting of younger talent.

But none of that matters now. Taiga made an error that cost Cortez millions of dollars. Cortez imprisoned Taiga and pushed him out of his lap.

By the time Cortez realized what he was doing to the man he loved, and freed Taiga, the damage was done. Taiga left Cortez, who disappeared, heartbroken. Now single, bitter, and Vice Lord of Gula in his own right, Taiga no longer marches to any fife but his own internal compass. What will he do as Vice Lord?

Demon Information

Sakyo (he/him) is young for a demon—only just passed his two hundredth year—but he enjoys his current host. The demon and his host have bonded over cards, cigarettes, and bloodshed, and they work as an interesting team. Sakyo is blasé, apathetic and power-hungry, determined to learn new and better dominions, to increase his dominions’s masteries. He’s taking the form and name of a minor villain from the anime Yu Yu Hakusho, which was on primetime when Taiga was a boy. Taiga is the first human he’s worked with he’s genuinely enjoyed.
