- Due to a manic prank from Scipio, Yono’s right eye was rendered blind. As the scar began to heal, Yono was surprised that he began to regain sight in his eye; although "sight" wasn’t the exact word. Yono’s vision was now split between reality and an alternate, parallel-like version of reality—it’s twisted and macabre, and washed in a straining spectrum of pinks, blues, and purples that shimmers like the surface of water. This "shimmering" fluid effect can also be seen from an external viewer. He keeps it covered almost all of the time.
- Migrant habits, considering he's an orphan by the time he's 16
- Huge and burly, but is calm and slow to work up emotionally—reminiscent of Iron Tager (© BlazBlue)
- Oversized gauntlets were also inspired by Tager from imagining Yono in Arc System Works' BlazBlue art style
- Original name was "Yonokatsu" when I thought I was cool and made up names... and then I found out that "katsu" is Japanese for "cutlet"

After having served as a bodyguard for Saari Pradana, Yono eventually settled into a more quiet suburban town in Siteria3. A short while after gaining employment as a bouncer at a local nightclub, he joined Rin Kimura and Midori Akamatsu as part of their "girl gang", acting as the backup and brawns for their schemes.
[ Krav Maga ]
Given that Yono's always been a larger individual, he's been approached by many military recruiters. However, the only one who got through to him was a loose acquaintance of his mother's—and he ended up enrolling Yono in Krav Maga classes. This, coupled with his calm voice and demeanor, made him the perfect candidate for his eventual profession as a bodyguard. Yono prefers to try and diffuse tension by talking aggressors down, but he's more than capable of handling himself with just his bare hands in any fight (his only match is Alan Paxton).
[ Iron Fists ]
Despite being a calm individual who relies on force as a last resort, Yono possesses a pair of oversized, mechanical gauntlets that he wears at all times. These carbon fiber gloves are more so for show than anything else, but they're as equally effective as they are showy—coupled with his Krav Maga skills, Yono's punches land with the power of a speeding freight train.
After turning eighteen, Saari Pradana (heiress to the fashion moguls Natalia and Christian Pradana) was told by her parents that she was in need of her own, personal bodyguard. On a bit of a whim, Yono applied for the job—and was eventually hired. Not realizing exactly what he was signing up for, Yono found the fame, spotlight, and paparazzi to be overwhelming. After about a year of service, Yono resigned—and was only able to do so with Saari supporting his decision. Their professional relationship ended amicably and civilly; however, the two haven't kept in close contact with one another.
Rin Kimura is the founding member [and only other female member] of her self-proclaimed "girl gang", which is comprised of her and Midori Akamatsu. Although Yono himself hasn't taken on the title of being a "girl gang member", both Midori and Rin value him as an addition to their team. Stubborn and headstrong, Yono has had to get Rin out of a handful of risky situations, and he acts primarily as her bodyguard.
Midori Akamatsu is the [only] other female member of Rin Kimura's "girl gang". Although Yono himself hasn't taken on the title of being a "girl gang member", both Midori and Rin value him as an addition to their team. Although Midori is more capable of holding her own, Yono still acts as her bodyguard.
