BackstoryEdit

Kazuo Kiriyama was considered a prodigy when he was very young, even his father would call him the chosen one. Kazuo was a very happy child and would always look on the positive side of things and always laughed. Even when baby Ryubi broke one of Kazuo's toys, Kazuo didn't get angry and made Ryubi a toy made out of legos. He also helped out Chef Toutaku who was feeling sick one day, so Kazuo helped out with the meal he was supposed to make. He used to enjoy watching the Action Rangers and wanted to be a hero just like them. {C}

The accident.

{C}This all changed one night, when Kazuo, his mother, and the driver were involved in a car accident. Kazuo lost his mother that night and the ability to feel emotion, the doctors said he suffered from brain damage and cerebral trauma. The doctors tried to get him to recover but they never found a way. Gone was the happy and cheerful Kazuo, now taken over by his new sociopathic personality and inability to feel emotional attachment or remorse of any kind.

Up until he was a freshmen, not much about Kazuo's life was known so it can be assumed that he simply didn't do anything that was too important.

Shortly after becoming a freshmen, Kazuo was studying in the library when he overheard several boys fighting. Kazuo walked over to tell them to keep it down which angered the older boys. They now wanted to fight with him but Kazuo easily defeated all four boys thanks to reading a book on the human anatomy. As he was leaving, the boy who was beaten, Mitsuru Numai stopped him and wanted to know how he beat them. Mitsuru was in awe of Kazuo and told him that he was in debt to him. Mitsuru would later start calling Kazuo "boss" and they formed a small gang. Kazuo didn't bother getting into small fights like the rest of his gang, but still jumped in time to time when he felt like it.

Friends and EnemiesEdit

Kazuo didn't have any real friends nor any real enemies due to his lack of emotion. The closest thing he does have to friends is his gang known as the Kiriyama Family.

In the ProgramEdit

The First VictimsEdit

The first victims Kazuo had were his gang, Mitsuru Numai, Ryuhei Sasagawa and Hiroshi Kuronaga. He meets his gang at the southern most tip of the island. They meet him there, with Izumi Kanai as a captive. They decide to flip a coin, heads that they would rape her and go against the Program, tails they would play to win. Since the coin came up tails, Kazuo killed them all with his MAC-10. Mitsuru Numai came just minutes after the killing, and Kazuo tells the story to him. He then turns his gun on him, and guns him down.

Adding to the Body countEdit

His next victims were Yukiko Kitano and Yumiko Kusaka, who were trying to rally the students to not fight and negotiate. And then while he was resting, he began to suspect Sho was following him. He led him to a danger zone and his collar exploded. A while later, he saw Yutaka Seto and Shinji Mimura reconciling after he killed Keita Iijima. Kazuo ambushed them and killed Yutaka in one shot. Shinji tried to blow him up, but he died from his wounds, not after blowing up the warehouse they were hiding out in. He then found Toshinori and Hiroki fighting and he killed Toshinori after he tried to trick him and took his gun and bullet proof vest.Then, he followed Hiroki and Kayoko Kotohiki, and he and Hiroki fought. Eventually, Kazuo got the upper hand and killed them both.

Battle with MitsukoEdit

Kazuo was repairing himself after the fight with Hiroki in the more civilized area of the island. He stitched up his wounds and got dressed and headed out. Unaware that Mitsuko was in the house right across the street, he walked out in search of victims. Mitsuko saw her chance and shot at him, but he quickly rolled out of the way. His bullet wound in his arm caused by Hiroki opened and he dropped his gun in pain. Mitsuko, believing that she shot him, continued to attack. Kazuo rolled to cover as another of Mitsuko's shots destroyed his bag, scattering his guns out of reach. As Mitsuko angled herself to kill him, he grabbed his bag of glass which he got from a broken picture, and threw it at her, lacerating her face and temporarily blinding her. He then shot her in the arm, and Mitsuko tried to seduce him, and although he was confused but a little intrigued, he continued to shoot at her in her shoulder, stomach and shot all her fingers on her left hand off. Eventually, naked and in pain, she crawled to her bag and brought out a Magical Emily ring, a gift from her real father. Kazuo began to get more confused. She then began to say that her father never left her, and was watching. Kazuo, mesmerized with the ring and hurting from his wound, dropped his gun in the process. Eventually, he got out of his trance and grabbed his pistol in mid-air with his other unharmed arm and blew Mitsuko's face off with a shot through her nose. He then cut his arm open and took the tendon that controlled his pointer finger out and taped it to his arm. He tested it out and decided to go find the rest of the students.

Final BattleEdit

When it came down to the last four, Kazuo didn't hesitate to try and kill them. He followed them for a while, and when they drove away, Kazuo eventually found a sports vehicle and began to drive after them. After a while, his MAC-10 was running out of bullets, he began using his pistol he picked up. Kazuo then followed Shuya and the rest into a field, where his car blew up and rolled into a deep field. Thinking they had won, Shogo and the others decided to walk away. But, Kazuo still kept going. He began to shoot at them, while moving his body like a puppet, and he lost sight in his right eye. He finally stopped shooting, and fell down into the brush. He began to remember bits and pieces of his life, up until the accident. Before he finally died, he said to Shuya that he could finally feel again, meaning he could feel emotions again, and finally drew his last breath and died.
