Sophie grew up in Philadelphia with a normal household , however it had a twist. Sophie's father “Tony” smuggled drugs and guns from Mexico to the states and supplied them to one of the biggest cartel gangs in Philadelphia. Her mother “Maria” works at jobs making money under the table as she is using a fake alias since she is in hiding. Sophie’s parents met in Mexico as Maria was the point of contact for the drug pickup. Maria caught Tony’s eyes as she was an Italian girl living in Mexico, and after they went on dates and got to know more about each other they both discovered each other’s secrets and began dating. Maria got pregnant and when Sophie’s father found out, he wanted the baby to be born in the U.S so he smuggled a shipment of drugs and Maria over the border hence where we are now in Philadelphia….
Sophie lived a normal life on the outward appearance, she went to school, wore nice clothes never had to struggle for much, she went to a catholic church and participated in sports in high school. On the inside of things in her home, her mom was technically an illegal immigrant staying on the low as not to be found since she was using a fake name because she was hiding from her past from her home in Italy and Sophie’s father smuggling drugs and guns over the border to the biggest gang in Philly meant for a very interesting web of secrets.
Late one night Lucas (Sophie’s Boyfriend) arrived at her house in tears explaining what he had just witnessed, begging for her to leave with him .. earlier Lucas had gotten into an argument with his brother Duncan (Lucas's brother Duncan worked with Sophie's father tony, but Lucas did not know what they did) after fighting with his brother, Lucas gets on his motorcycle and decided to follow Duncan to find out what he is doing to get all this money and takes off after them. Following close behind, he sees them pull into a warehouse where another car is parked, two individuals get out of the parked vehicle waiting. Lucas shuts off his bike, crouching behind a bush viewing what is going on inside the warehouse. His brother Duncan gets out of the vehicle heading to the rear of the truck, where one individual started walking towards him. He sees Duncan opening a bag in the back of the truck. the individual standing there with him pulls out a firearm and shoots Duncan in the head. Lucas then sees Sophie's father Tony jump from the truck and starts firing and ends up killing the man who shot Duncan. There was another individual in the car, and he got out shooting at tony hitting him in the leg before he ran and got away. Cop sirens blazed in the distance and Lucas got scared and took off to Sophie's house, shocked, upset, freaking out after witnessing his brother getting killed and watching Sophie’s father get shot not knowing if he was dead or not.
Sophie’s father Tony was sent to prison for murder of the other individual and the police officers pinned all the drugs and guns on him as well which meant he was serving a life sentence. The man who got away was part of a rival gang in the area, since tony killed their man, it messed up them stealing the merchandise that day, so they had it out for him. Since Tony was in prison, they could not do much with him, so they sent a warning that they were coming after Sophie and Maria.
Sophie’s mother Maria packed up her things and was going back to Mexico, however Sophie did not want to go so Sophie packed whatever she could in a backpack and decided to leave Philadelphia with her boyfriend Lucas and head to the west coast. They jumped on his motorcycle and headed for California across the states, leaving no trace behind. After driving nonstop for 30+ hours they found themselves in California at a rest stop. Sophie went inside to use the restroom and heard all kinds of commotion and gunshots outside, after getting outside she found Lucas’s bike tipped over , blood on the ground , but all his belongings still in the saddlebags on the bike. She screamed his name and ran all over, but he was nowhere to be found.... she walked back to the bike and saw a note she missed the first time, she reads the note : There will be no witnesses, Lucas is dead and you are next: Sophie begins freaking out, they found them and now she is being hunted , she hopped on the bike and started driving into the city Los Santos in search of a place to hide and new identity and new life. She looks forward to the many opportunities she finds as wella s new friends that she can trust.

Yamato Kurosawa (birth name, Hideo Itokawa) was born in the Ikebukuro neighborhood of Tokyo, Japan, on November 12th, 1989. The son of Hitoshi Itokawa and Emily Clark-Itokawa, Yamato's father, worked as a line machinist at a local battery factory. At the same time, his mother, an ex-pat American, taught young children to speak English. Yamato showed academic excellence from a very young age and achieved top marks in his class. When he was not tending to his studies, he enjoyed playing poker and gambling with his friends. Young gangsters in the area noticed his knack for gambling and would often invite him to hang around their businesses, playing various games.
During his high school years, Yamato's mother became gravely ill and was unable to work as a result. His father was put into dire financial straits between bringing in the sole family income and paying his wife's medical bills. Yamato, motivated especially by his sick mother, decided to take up odds and ends jobs for the gangsters he had associated with in order to help provide for his family. Shortly after he graduated high school, his mother succumbed to her illness. Yamato had plans to pursue medical school and become a nephrologist but found himself completely unmotivated in his academic pursuits from the depression of losing his mother. Over time, Yamato became increasingly integrated into the criminal underworld of Tokyo, taking part and doing things he had never imagined doing. His ambition and achievement were noticed by Katsumi Takei, a kyodai in the yakuza Inagawa-kai. Takei offered to take Yamato under his wing as his shatei. Hoping to find meaning and comfort through fraternity, Yamato accepted his proposal and dove further into a life of crime. Sometime after, Yamato's father became aware of his son's criminal lifestyle and disowned him for dishonoring his family.
Yamato spent many years rising through the ranks of Inagawa-kai and began to spearhead many operations as he rose through the ranks, particularly gambling and extortion. One day, Yamato was ordered to carry out the task of murdering a man. The man was his father. His father became financially crippled after his wife's death and his son's exile, as his wife's medical bills were too monumental to pay. His father turned to the Yamaguchi-gumi, a yakuza clan allied with the Inagawa-kai, for a loan to help pay off the debt; however, he was unaware of how tremendous the interest of this loan was and soon found himself in a deeper hole financially than when he started out. Yamaguchi-gumi sent some men to intimidate Yamato's father into paying his loan, and eventually, a fight broke out. Yamato's father was able to fend off the men, mortally wounding one of them. Yamaguchi-gumi then reached out to the Inagawa-kai, asking them to dispatch Yamato's father for mortally wounding one of their own; Yamaguchi-gumi was under heavy watch by the police force at the time and could not risk having a murder investigation on their hands.
Upon the realization that the man in question was his father, Yamoto pleaded to his oyabun to spare his father, but the only mercy to be found was that the order was given to another kyodai. Yamato quickly warned his father of his impending doom, pleading with him to go into hiding and offering him money to do so. Still disgusted by his son's actions, Yamato's father demanded that he leave at once and refused to heed his warning. Shortly after their last encounter, Yamato's father disappeared, never to be seen again. Filled with rage, Yamato plotted to assassinate his oyabun by poisoning his tea. After successfully assassinating his oyabun, Yamato staged his own death and fled to the United States, changing his name from Hideo Itokawa to Yamato Kurosawa, fearing that his plot would be uncovered. Yamato finds himself in a new and strange city, hoping to find new meaning and opportunities, likely in establishing a new criminal enterprise.
