Background information


Upon meeting Yoshi-san money was proffered for local guidance, your guidance. Services rendered, and rendered well, he pays you a retainer to show him the frozen wastes. You don't know why, you don't how. You know he pays you. Acting as facilitator, translator (as best you can), guide and bodyguard, he brings easy money.

The more you travel with yoshi-san however, the more apparent it becomes that the localities and certain members of the native populations are of a greater interest than that of tourism to him.

Until you know of GJT's (Generic Japanese Tourist) it should be bemusing but believable that he is simply a rich fellow from the orient looking to see the world before it's entire end.

He will at times disappear from your company to re-appear at a later date.

If you have been to specific places with and without him you will begin to be able to notice the difference that will eventually lead you to clues as to his truer identity.

Using you as an alibi and a cover for his own actions he represents a higher power within the world, acting upon their orders while presenting a naive facade.

Then there is the question do you continue to work to his agenda, attempt to recruit him to your own, or part ways, perhaps in blood.

(Needs expanding: more clarification about purpose, and higher power)
