Like most people there are multiple elements to the psyche of Goro, first and foremost Goro considers himself a Patriot of the Earth Kingdom. His father and grandmother were both agents of the Dai Li. As an agent of the Dai Li he carries himself like most others do, stern, uncompromising, discreet and of course very professional. It should be noted that Goro is loyal to the Earth Kingdom before anything else, this loyalty does not necessary extend to the individual currently ruling the Earth Kingdom.
When operating in Republic City however (which is the vast majority of the time, as he is currently involved in a long term deep cover operation) Inspector Yamamoto is an entirely different specimen. As a citizen of Republic City Goro is approachable, friendly and enjoys banter. He competes with his social and professional peers in a manner that is sporting but not aggressive. As an Inspector he has an attention to detail and displays impressive deductive skills.
On a more personal level, since coming to Republic City Goro has started to question some of his beliefs in service to the Earth Kingdom and the legitimacy of his mission, though he generally tells himself this is just a result of long exposure to a foreign life style and keeping his mission in mind is top priority.Background ||
Goro was born and raised in Ba Sing Se, his family enjoying a position of some relevance after generations of military service. One can go back as far as their are records and the Yamamoto's have been military people, in more recent generations however the Yamamoto family have served in the feared and respected Dai Li. Goro's father served, as did his Grandmother. From a young age it was made clear that Goro's parents intended for him to do the same. Goro was hardly a model student in his younger years, always more interested in his next meal or throwing people into a nearby river as opposed to learning how to do something like...math. How life would change.
At thirteen years old Goro was enlisted for training with the Dai Li. The young Mr. Yamamoto was a diamond in the rough so to speak, oozing potential but lacking any of the drive to see it fulfilled. As it would turn out, Ba Sing Se's secret police have ways of motivating a young man. What entered the Dai Li training program and what emerged were two entirely different creatures. The boy had been frivolous and rowdy, the graduated Dai Li agent was focused and dedicated. He was sculpted into the ideal operative of the Earth Kingdom.
Goro took part in standard service for the Dai Li until he was twenty one, by then he was both an accomplished Earth Bender and Metal Bender, though he had significantly more Earth Bending training. It brought up an interesting opportunity for the Dai Li. As the Earth Kingdom still considered Republic City to be built upon Earth Kingdom territory and rightfully within the borders of the Kingdom, they were curious as to what level of support there would be within the City if the Kingdom attempted to annex Republic City. Not to mention it would be valuable to have an agent inside the City in a position that would potentially give him information and insight.
The Dai Li developed a fresh background for Goro which established him as having spent his youth as a member of a gang who underwent a successful rehabilitation while in prison before turning his life around and becoming a member of the Ba Sing Se Police, using his insight into Gang Activities to assist in their arrest. He was even given numerous tattoos to fully sell the story. With everything set up Goro traveled to Republic City with fresh credentials and a letter of recommendation from the Ba Sing Se Police Chief. He enlisted in the Republic City Police where his Dai Li training quickly made him an invaluable officer. It has been seven years since then, he has since made Inspector and while he still regularly reports back to Ba Sing Se (via coded letters written to his 'sister') he has recently started having a few...doubts
. Appearance ||
If on display the most obvious part of his appearance would be the extensive tattoos. They do not tend to be on display however unless he's at his favourite sauna or the beach. Beyond that there's the shock of red hair normally worn back tied back. He has a lithe-athletic frame and its noticeably toned. Pet ||
Goro keeps his mind sharp with books, his body strong with exercise and rewards his soul with a long session in a sauna. O/O ||Theme Song ||
