Namba first comes across Ichiban Kasuga having been dumped and left for dead in Isezaki Ijincho. As a former nurse, he stitches up Kasuga's gunshot wound inflicted by Masumi Arakawa.

Fighting Style

Namba is able to fight using special attacks like breathing fire using strong alcohol and throwing beans at enemies to entice pigeons to attack them. The developers described the former move as being the embodiment of the term "Like a Dragon," as the Yakuza series is known in Japan.[1]
