As long as I don't have these eyes, I can't possibly lose.
~ Yakuza

Yakuza is a player killer of New ALO and member of the player killing guild, The League of Darkness Knights.


His race is Spriggan. He has dark black hair, and his eyes are covered by a long white bandanna with two stars from temple to temple and two white marks where his eyes should be. The two extremes of the bandanna are loosen in the back of his head, and generally dance while the wind blows.

He wears a white hakama, with forearm and leg grey protects. His body wears a black and grey armor, which is united to a forearm protector, which bears the symbol of his guild. On his chest, he armor, the symbol of the Yamabishi is inscribed. He carries his daishō slung on the left side of his belt.


Prideful and arrogant, Yakuza trusts a lot on his fighting skills, and boasts overconfidence on them. He's a fighting lover, enjoying every single fight he has with a strong opponent. But he also mercilessly slaughters or plays with those that aren't a match for him. 

Still, he seems to have certain level of honor and respect towards those who earn it. Yakuza is searching for a great battle, and to become the best swordsman on New ALO.


His real name is Shinji Katou. he was an old Kendo rival of Galant, until  the latter defeated him. Shinji then continued training, and sometime between 2025 and 2026, he joined New ALO.

He gained this ability by sealing away his sense of sight, sewing his eyes.  After hard training, he gained his unique skill Shingantsu. He joined the League of Darkness Knights after he saw Mordread on the game, and noticed they had and objective in common.



Before SAO, Miya and Shinji were enemies, result of Galant's rivalry with him. Afterwards, when they meet on ALO and after discovering they had a mutual enemy, they became uneasy allies. Yakuza was the last of the three right-hand men to join the guild.


He and Jack are long term rivals, and they want to defeat each other.


Galant and Shinji were long term rivals since they were in middle school. After Galant defeated him, he always sought vengeance on him. Standing with Mordread, he seeks to kill Galant, or at least, see him die.


His skill on combat is fearsome and this results on his overconfident personality. But this is totally justified, as he possess great precision, quick reflexes and great skill in several Japanese sword martial arts, including: iaido, Kenjustsu, Battojustu, Kendo, and others. Furthermore, he can wield both his katana and a wakizashi (long dagger) at the same time. Wielding both blades, he stands as powerful as a dual-wielding player.

Even with his skill on katana, his ace card is definitely his unique skill, Shingantsu, what allows him to sense the area aground of him with his powered-up senses and with a sixth radar-like sense in replacement of the one he doesn't have, the sight. With this unique skill, he can almost predict his opponent's moves by sensing the area around him, defeating them easily. Furthermore, he has several Shingantsu unique sword skills.

The combination of his unique skill plus his usage of a katana makes Yakuza one of his guild, rivaling even Mordread himself.
