Ryoshi Dawson (born Ryoshi Tenzo in 1978) is a main character in Clockwork and The IT Files. Originally with the Japanese Public Security Intelligence Agency (PSIA), Ryoshi was later recruited by her future husband Scott Dawson to work for the Paradise Foundation. Eventually the two helped bring the entire Foundation down and retired in Brazil, marrying and creating Utopia Holdings. Ryoshi is also a member of the Chrono Alliance.
Ryoshi Tenzo was born in Tokyo, Japan. Her father and mother were both executive for a metal works company and traveled often for buisness. This left Ryoshi in the care of her loving aunt who was her mother's sister. Her aunt, never having children of he own, raised Ryoshi as if she was her own child. When she was seventeen Ryoshi's beloved aunt was killed in the 1995 Sarin Gas attack. This devastated her as she had spent most of her childhood with the woman. From that point on Ryoshi's relationship with her parents was rocky at best, though both her parents were home for the remainder of her senior year, Ryoshi never really bonded with them. Upon graduating high school Ryoshi was accepted into the National Defense Academy of Japan in Yokosuka, Kanagawa. It was an unlikely route of study for beautiful smart young woman like herself but she felt it was something she needed to do for the aunt that raised her. It'll be nearly five years before Ryoshi would return to Tokyo.
She graduated the National Defense Academy with the rank of lieutenant and served in Japan's Army intelligence division for two years achieving the rank of captain before retiring. Ryoshi was only out of the military for two weeks before she was recruited by the PSIA where she was assigned to the anti-terrorist unit. There she worked night and day hunting the people similar as to those who had murdered her aunt. Ryoshi often worked eighteen hour days only taking a break when she was ordered to by her superiors. Her personal life was non-existent as work was everything to her, she went through several boyfriends before she decided to try her hand with the same sex, where she went through several girlfriends as well. The biggest factor being her work life. Eventually Ryoshi's work caught up to her and she began to feel burned out and saw the battle that she was fighting everyday was a losing and never ending one thanks to government bureaucrats.
Fade to Black
Eventually Ryoshi switched to the private sector taking a job with her friend and crush Scott Dawson. Scott and Ryoshi had arranged it so that she would be killed in the line duty, severing any ties that she had to her home country. She served secretly as Scott's right hand woman during the Paradise Foundation's operation to kidnap and chip world class super models in order to turn them to ideal lovers for the rich. Though Alexis Sutherland was recruited to lead the team that performed the kidnappings it was actually Ryoshi who planned out the operations and made sure they went down without a hitch. In the end Alexis, her teammates and Ashley Tisdale were all chipped for their failures. Ryoshi was promoted and now was second to only Scott Dawson.
Ryoshi found herself running all of the Foundation's field operations in their quest to take over the world, Erika Stone's ability to stop time being her ace in the hole. The Foundation would not succeed and though it was believed that the Interpol task force had successfully stopped them it was indeed Scott and Ryoshi who really took the evil organization down. Shortly afterward Scott and Ryoshi would marry and relocate to Utopia Towers in Caxias Do Sul, Brazil. There the couple owned Utopia Holdings and made millions. This is on top of the millions that the couple already acquired. Like Scott Dawson, Ryoshi Tenzo is very rich and powerful. Though married Ryoshi still tends to look out for her husband's best interest as she had down when they worked together.
When Ashley Tisdale escaped Ryoshi was back running a field team to stop the mad woman. With the help of her nephew, her and Scott were able to re-capture the now mad scientist. During this time she made a close bond to Chloe Noi who lacked a mother figure for most of her life. She and Chloe got a long well together in their short time, Ryoshi seeing potential in the girl and Chloe seeing herself in the older woman.
As 2009 moved on Ryoshi got reacquainted with her old friend Parker Reich, who ended helping Utopia Holdings perform a hostile takeover of Talon Protection, the company she'd been working for and gotten jaded with. Ryoshi was injured in the event and Scott became more protective, assigning Ryoshi to recruit possible administration staff in Newark next. Ryoshi managed to recruit several women to Utopia as well as collecting Anastasia Stephanos, whom she gave to her nephew Tucker Holmes as a birthday present.
Deciding to investigate rumors of lost magical artifacts in Hamunaptra, Ryoshi and Scott traveled to the city with Angel Jenly, using the movie star as a cover. During the operation Ryoshi experienced a hint of jealousy when they encountered Mandy Mahina, one of Scott's former lovers, though she quickly got over it after learning how minor the relationship was. During the tactical part of the mission Ryoshi ended up in hand to hand combat with Yeardley Luxby and nearly ended up with a broken arm if not for a Qin Disc freezing both of them. The incident left Ryoshi a bit less sure of herself and her husband worried about her continued well-being in the field.
When Sandy Vanholt used the Durga Hourglass and the Stillsville Camera to freeze time on a global scale Ryoshi was downstairs in Utopia Towers, and thus frozen. Scott used a Peacemaker to unfreeze Ryoshi and they began to head for Malibu, though Scott was acting more protective than before. Ryoshi met with Erika Stone for the first time since using her as a field operative at Victoria Towers. While preparing to attack Sandy Ryoshi and Erika ended up at first tense before giving into the lust they had for one another. After Sandy was taken down Ryoshi and Erika slept together, making peace. To be fair to Chloe when she was asked to give up Aisha Reynolds Ryoshi suggested Alexis as a replacement, having grown tired of her former ally.
