Takuya became a hard-line Communist while a young man in Tokyo. This was not a healthy thing to be in 1939 Japan, so he was very relieved when he was offered an opportunity to study medicine at the University of Moscow. There he came to the attention of Leonid Barofsky, a well-known Brujah who had taken part in the Glorious Revolution. Barofsky was taken with the evident sincerity and aggressiveness of the young medical student, and offered him a chance to continue working for the Revolution forever. Takuya accepted, and continued to study at night while serving the Party.

He fought against Gorbachev’s rise to power, and schemed with the other hard-line Brujah in Moscow. One night, he returned to his haven to find bits of Barofsky strewn everywhere. Takuya fled west to Sweden, where he met up with Prof. Habesohn, who put him in touch with Sir Ralph. Takuya is on this expedition because the European Idealists have a hgh opinion of his intellectual abilities and understanding of the political process
