Yasuo is an extremely quiet person, he is often considered aloof and cold by those around him. Usually only speaking a few curt words in most conversations. Yasuo is in reality, incredibly shy, he tries to mask his shyness as merely disdain for other people when in reality he wants nothing more than to talk to anyone who would be willing to listen.
His sense of right and wrong is not as absolute as most other people. For instance, he views violence as wrong but petty theft as perfectly acceptable. Yasuo’s childhood living in the streets shaped his moral compass to display an attitude that favours survival over all else. Yasuo will try to stop a mugger not because they are stealing from someone, but that they may hurt the victim.
This emphasis on stopping crimes that endanger another’s life has often gotten Yasuo into dangerous situations himself, once he feels that he is in mortal danger he will run however. Yasuo has no experience in intimacy whatsoever as all his efforts thus far have been to prolonging his impoverished life. He does not really know whether he likes males, females or both. As such, Yasuo is very uncomfortable around ‘beautiful’ people, he thinks that he may like them and he promptly freaks out and flees or goes as quiet as a dead mouse.
Omashu born, Yasuo was abandoned by his parents, Raiko and Hama at the age of 9. Raiko was involved in a local triad as the manager of the city bordello and as such had no time for his young son or the common prostitute who bore him. As Yasuo grew he was hated more and more by his father and the drunken beatings he gave the child grew more and more fierce. His mother, Hana, was more focused on her ‘work’ than she was him. Often bringing men home with her so she could buy the latest fashion items and whatnot, Yasuo grew up to the sound of sex and as such grew to hate, even fear it. Such a childhood was not to last…
Hana abandoned Yasuo when he was aged 6, she met a rich young playboy from Zaofu and had gone with him when he asked her to be his extra-marital mistress. This meant he had to move in to his abusive father’s whorehouse. Yasuo found some solace during his three years with his father. He rarely had to see his father due to his work, though when he did Yasuo was always beaten bloody after a half hour or so.
The day his father abandoned him to the slums of Omashu (Yasuo’s 9th birthday) with nothing more than 2000 yuans and the clothes on his back was perhaps the happiest day of Yasuo’s short life. He was no longer to be a punching bag for his father, he was no longer to be a symbol of the failures of his mother, Yasuo was finally free to pursue his own path. What he did not realise was the hardships one must endure to survive. One month after Yasuo was abandoned by his father he ran out of money, it was illegal for a minor of his age to work in the city and thus he became a petty thief in order to stop himself from starving.
The turning point in this downward spiral that was Yasuo’s life came when he was 14. During a robbery gone wrong yasuo met his father once more, only now he was a high ranking lieutenant in the triad he worked for. His father had grown to hate everything from his early life even more now that he had attained a position of respect in his ‘career’ and so he tried to kill his son, for nothing more than trying to steal 2000 Yuans, the very same amount of money he had given the boy not 5 years prior.
Yasuo fled Omashu and began journeying throughout the Earth Republic. During his travels he met a great many people, most of them bad, but some of them helped him a great deal. During his 17th year Yasuo met a young man by the name of Tamir in Ba Sing Se, Tamir was the owner of a very prestigious bending school and though Yasuo had not learned more than the basics of Earthbending Tamir hired him on the spot to teach youngsters.
Yasuo’s life was finally looking up, he had a well-paying job, a roof over his head and a friend he could rely on. But sadly, it was not to last. Tamir had not told Yasuo, but he was heavily involved in the dealings of various triads and crime organisations throughout the Earth Republic, including Yasuo’s father’s particular group. It wasn’t long before Tamir was paid to kill Yasuo by the Omashu triad and though he regretted his actions, Tamir was not one to turn away money. The night of Yasuo’s 18th birthday Tamir made his move. Yasuo barely escaped with his life, Tamir was a master Earthbender and he was but a street rat who taught the 6 year olds how to lift rocks properly. Escaping Ba Sing Se Yasuo once again began his journey throughout the Republic, only this time he had a definite goal in mind, Republic City.
Yasuo travelled for several years (mostly on foot) trying to get to Republic City. He had many struggles along the way, encountering bandits, murderers and even his father along the way. But finally, in his 4th year of travel he finally arrived the outskirts or the city. The real adventure begins now...
