Guy Flynn, born in the polluted slums of Neo Tokyo , climbed his way up as a shrewd businessman by laundering money for crime boss Takeda Katsu. He currently administers a nightclub that entertains important businessmen and government officials who are seeking the company of ladies - the kind that are costly, but never deliver on what's really being paid for. He dreams of leaving the decay of Neo Tokyo behind in exchange for the freedom of a beach paradise. But he knows the system is built to keep people like him from ever making enough money, so that they HAVE TO stay under the control of the elites.
His only confidant is the nightclub's lead hostess, Aiko. He doesn't tell her everything, but she usually figures it out. She is very affectionate with him, in an unusually friendly way. Some would say there's a spark between them. But business and pleasure don't mix. She doesn't know about his laundering activities; but she can tell Guy isn't running a regular Nightclub. Still, she knows her place well enough to not ask.
