Touru Hirose is a character featured in Yakuza 6, portrayed by Takeshi Kitano.
Hirose's past is a dark one. He lost his parents during the war, and started his own gang at a very young age of 14 years old. He was later adopted by Heizo and became a hitman.
Yakuza 6 Edit
Hirose is first introduced after Kiryu beats Yakumo in battle as he enjoys a sundae after leaving the hospital. Welcoming him to the Hirose family, he builds a relationship with Kiryu to ensure his cooperation while staying in Onomichi.
He has a somewhat stocky build. In his first encounter, he wears a white T-shirt with a belly warmer, and a pair of slacks. During the boss fight, he wears a windbreaker jacket and a pair of leather shoes.
He's a jovial senior and takes things in a laid-back fashion. He treats his subordinates like his own children. Despite this, he's also a professional assassin and particularly skillful with knives and fights practically in battle. He is also a known schemer, ranging from scamming a hospital for insurance fraud after an accident and later manipulating Yuuta to killing Big Roh claiming that he will come after Haruto when Kiryu goads him to facing his own fears.
Fighting Style Edit
His weapon of choice is a kitchen knife. His knife attacks mainly consist of slashes and throws. Further into the fight, he also shows his knack for stealth by tossing a knife to a nearby steam pipe to create a makeshift smokescreen.
