Three years ago, the Tanaka gang ruled in the small town of Rosedale. And the strangest thing about them, was that barely any of them have graduated highschool. Yet, they wielded weapons, used lethal force against rivals/anyone that'd be foolish enough to get in their way. But, during a week where highschool was off for break, they caught wind of a new rival gang causing trouble. And while they knew of the rival, they didn't know of the soon to be threat to their lifestyle. But that was nothing, compared to what they were going to encounter next. An elite police team, known as "Taskforce 24". Called in by Rosedale's police department, in hopes that the team would be able to stomp out the gangs in Rosedale. Said team would the architect of the downfall of the Tanaka gang. After calling a truce in order to deal with the rival gang, who were starting to become a bigger threat than the Tanaka gang. Even bordering on terrorism. Needless to say, they were doomed. Since they not only had a powerful gang, but one of the most skilled police's task force working with said gang. With the threat of the rival gang gone, the Tanaka gang hoped that the truce would help them with being excused for some of the crimes that several members committed. But, these hopes were stomped out, when a large number of police arrived at the front door of their main hideout. In order to escape, some of the members stayed behind, so that the leader and small escort could get away. Their fates unknown. Escaped, arrested, or worse. Fleeing from safehouse to safehouse, they were soon corned. The leader of the gang, Natsume Tanaka, asked one of the members, Ryder Rowe to enact a plan that had been talked about a few months ago while on the topic of the future. The plan was known as the "Lonesome Road." Where one of the members, known as Ryder, would distract the police, while the gang fled the town. By any means necessary, even if it meant death... Before telling the rest of the members to enact the plan, "For pastures over yonder." Basically telling them to escape, and go their separate ways, into hiding. With a sufficient amount of firepower, The gang member went to battle with the police. Starting with opening fire upon the police department, not wanting to actually kill any, but enough to catch their attention. Using his knowledge of the city, and his driving skills. He led the police on a wild goose chase while the gang fled. Taking a few hits from the police's pistols. After receiving the all clear from Natsume. Ryder changed his route from all over the city, to an abandoned warehouse. Where he limped inside. The police were about to storm in, with the taskforce taking the lead. When Ryder detonated enough explosives to set the building alight, and keeping police at bay. Using the secret access tunnel that led to the outskirts of the city, Ryder made his escape. But not before detonating the last of the explosives. Effectively making it look like he had gone out with a bang, than a whimper. Unfortunately, as part of the plan. He cut all communications with the gang. Traveling as far as he could away from the town. He went into hiding. Using a fake name, and taking small jobs to make end's meet. Which ended three years after the event, as Ryder received a text from an anonymous source. One that told him to head to where the ashes of the Tanaka gang had settled.
