Katsuo Iwashima is a character in Cyberpunk 2020.


Early Life[]

Katsuo Iwashima was born in Osaka, Japan in 1997. At some point, he began working for the Arasaka Corporation.


Prior to 2020, Katsuo became the weapons expert and second in command of security of the Arasaka Family Compound. He was one of Saburo's youngest bodyguards, and became consumed with his job and duty to the Arasaka Family. He considered Shintaro Takayama, the chief of security, a hopeless anachronism and had his heart set on Shintro's position. Katsuo was, however, smart enough to treat Shintaro with open respect and deference when needed. He was also responsible for escorting or accompanying Hanako Arasaka, Saburo's daughter, around Tokyo whenever she left the compound.

Katsuo, while loyal to Saburo and his family, developed a an interest for Hanako. He never revealed his feelings for her due to the possibility of Saburo firing him. He also feared Shintaro, who saw Hanako like a daughter, might also hurt him if his feelings became public. He kept his love for Hanako a secret to protect his future.[1]
