Gender: Male
Likes: Minette, Ms. Fortune, His restaurant
Dislikes: The Medici Mafia
Voiced by: Kaiji Tang

Yu-Wan (JP: ユーワン) is a Dagonian from the Dragon Empire who moved his business to the Canopy Kingdom, more specifically Little Innsmouth. Outside helping Ms. Fortune get back on her feet, he was hoping to sit back and run a regular business. But with the whole community in a crisis, it might be time to dust off his old skills and teach some young punks some manners.

Ms. Fortune's Story

Yu-Wan appears at the beginning and end of Ms. Fortune's story, where he is shown to be a good friend to Nadia and Minette. He is first seen thanking Nadia for chasing off Riccardo and Lawrence. He reappears at the end of her story and informs her that the Medici mafia has kidnapped many Dagonian women, including Minette. It is inferred that he intends on joining Nadia and Irvin in the pursuit of the Medici's and the rescue of Minette.

Playstyle Speculation

He’s a walking fish with cleavers! Rushdown with a side of Player 2, chop chop.

Short, squat, and a manic. With a style true to the spirit of cooking, he delivers plenty of expert cuts while vivid depictions of ornate dishes appear behind the characters. His supers may result in excessive drooling, as he prepares top shelf cuisine in the heat of battle. He’s also an avid Mahjong player, so some of this may come up in his style as well.

Rated “E” for Edible!
