Nair (ナイール, Naīru) is a character in Yakuza 4. She is a foreign detective on the lookout for a suspect in Kamurocho, and is Masayoshi Tanimura's sparring partner.

Background Edit

Nair's parents and brother were killed by GG, and she became a detective in order to track the man down and bring him to justice. She had been staying at a friend's house the night of the incident and was spared.

Marcos - a friend of Nair's brother - helped her join the force, and accompanied her to Japan.

Yakuza 4Edit

Nair is first seen outside of Homeland attempting to converse with a police officer in Tagalog. Tanimura steps in and offers to be her interpreter, and she informs him that she has come to Japan in order to find a suspect that she and her colleagues have been tracking down.


  • Nair is the only cisgender female in the entire Yakuza series that the player physically fights.
  • She is also one of the few female characters who fight alongside the protagonist, the others being Kaoru Sayama, Misuzu Asagi, and the hostesses from Yakuza: Dead Souls.
