The Kenran-kai are a goon squad. They boost their members with a lot of implants and enhancement technology to compliment their skills at head-bashing and thuggery, as they manage “community services” in Puyallup. Their primary activities involve chip-dealing and hijackings, when they’re not trying to push some small-fry gangs into following their orders. A bunch of them were adopted from a Japanese clan that the Watada-rengo wiped out a few years back. Shotozumi keeps them on a short leash. They specialize in dealing with the troublesome low-life gangs that infest their territory, and have also been called on whenever a direct confrontation has been needed with the Yakuza’s Mafia rivals.
For a short while, someone was claiming in ShadowSea posts that the core membership of the Kenran-kai were actually practitioners of the old ninjitsu ways. Whoever was spreading that rumor shut up quick just a few days later.
