"I never learned... anything. Then, I was consumed..."
Tetsuo Sakizaki was a tormented man. He was recruited from the life of a street thief into the Striders at a very young age, living to support his poor parents, and became known for his propensity to take ridiculous risks, taking the jobs that nobody would take. He worked closely with Shaun Gilmour, the two being fast friends despite their dissimilarities. It all changed August 23rd, 2209, when a simple mission of information retrieval turned out to be either a trap or was botched - a mystery which remains today. The explosion ruined his body, but Matic retrieved him, rebuilding him into a twisted cyborg, essentially blackmailing him into joining with the Red Dragons. From then on, he despised Shaun Gilmour, until mysteriously vanishing for over a year after the Red and Blue Dragons tore themselves apart. When he reappeared, he seemed to lack direction, searching for a meaning in his life by living as a mercenary, joining with the Black Dragons, and eventually settling into the Yakuza, but nothing made him happy, his life empty up until his death. He sacrificed himself against William Wiggin to save Linnea Blossom, catching his final attack with his own body and detonating the Chaos Cipher to end the monster's life.
