When the Sumiyoshi-kai struck back by sending a sniper to assassinate the Yamaguchi-gumi boss, all hell broke loose in the city of Tokyo. Before long, the gloves came off and no one's traditional turf was sacred. The 5 clans were at war. The Tokyo Olympics was supposed to be the Japanese Empire's opportunity to demonstrate its innate superiority to all the nations of the world, including Nazi-controlled Europe and the economically stagnant American backwaters.
So, in the run up to the Olympics, all out gang warfare between the 5 clans was completely unacceptable to the powers that be. Now, the normally untouchable yakuza elders, the oyabun father figures and the wakagashira advisors , are getting hospitalized, arrested, or knocked off right and left.

Yamaguchi-gumi green player : The Yamaguchi-gumi gumi means gang is the largest and most popular of the Japanese yakuza clans. They are growing quickly, like a healthy and expanding grove of bamboo. Yamaguchi-gumi gangsters love to practice fighting with katanas in sacred bamboo groves throughout their territory in the verdant parks of Tokyo. They purport to uphold the samurai spirit and teach the way of the warrior, bushido, to new recruits over a lengthy, year-long training period, during which time the new members study martial arts, perform household chores at the local clan office or main headquarters, and are exposed as little as possible to the ugly realities of drug dealing, pimping, and extortion.
The main business of the Yamaguchi-gumi is operating hostess clubs and sex venues throughout the city the Nightclubs suit. The hostesses pour drinks for clients, light their cigarettes, and tell them how awesome they are and how their wives don't truly understand them in exchange for ruinous sums of yen. The Shinto spirit or kami most sacred to the clan is the kitsune, or mischievous 9-tailed fox.
Finally, the Yamaguchi-gumi color, green, represents the love of nature that is the kokoro heart of the Yamato race. Sumiyoshi-kai purple player : The Sumiyoshi-kai kai means syndicate is the second largest numerically but the number one wealthiest of all the clans. They worship technology and count many tech otaku hackers and fanboys among their ranks. A long-time player in corporate blackmail and the inventor of sokaiya raids of annual corporate shareholders' meetings , the Sumiyoshi-kai uses encryption think Edward Snowden to hide their every move, leaving no trace on security cameras or databases as they move around the city, buying stolen goods from teams of female shoplifters and selling them for a high profit to cognoscenti elsewhere about town.
The specialty of the Sumiyoshi-kai is demanding protection money in exchange for making sure a legitimate business, from konbini convenience stores to major shipping lines, will continue to operate smoothly the Extortion suit. Sumiyoshi-kai yakuza are normally exceedingly well-mannered, educated, and sophisticated but a single word of disrespect can set them off on a loud, destructive rampage that brings powerful dishonor and shame to the targeted victims. Sumiyoshi-kai members are Buddhist; they pray to Kannon, the Bodhisattva of Compassion, and show mercy to their enemies if they display signs of contrition and the possibility of redemption.
Their color, purple, represents high tech, high fashion, and living the high life in general on stolen credit cards. Inagawa-kai black player : The original Tokyo gang, the Inagawa yakuza are now a distinct minority in the city which gave them birth.
Due to their ever dwindling numbers and conscious of their underdog status, the Inagawa-kai has convinced the world they are the fiercest, most brutal, and downright devilish of all the boryokudan violent organizations in the city of Tokyo.
