Entry Requirement:

What do you mean entry? What a stupid question. There is no G-G.

The G-G Coin:
As a sign of your loyalty to the clan, every member is given a small gold coin with a cockroach emblem and two holes in it, one in the center and another in the upper right. Flipping this coin in the air causes the wind to whistle through it in a very particular manner, which summons G-G members to your side. It is also used for identification purposes so you're not the victim of an 'accidental' dismemberment. Clan members are wise to keep this possession on their person at all times, as you are considered just another plebeian without it.

The Gokiburi-gumi is infamous not so much for their technical skill or prowess as a band of fighters, as much as an unwieldy, unstoppable horde of insatiable human locusts. Brutal brawls, high-stakes gambling and women (or men, there are quite a few Gokiburi women as well..) fuel their desire.
Their numbers are rumored to be endless (which is where the clan name originated from), which is a good thing, as one of the major credentials for entering seems to be recognizing life as enormously expendable if you aren't tough enough to keep yourself standing.
Despite their unruly behavior and underhanded methods, their loyalty to the leader of the clan is as thick as their heads. The oyabun, Ree, is not to be disrespected unless an individual fancies seeing how far their thumbs can be thrown for distance.
If you have ever seen a shady figure in a village alleyway selling ill-gotten goods, you've likely witnessed an enterprising Gokiburi hard at work, keeping the organization thriving. They take business very seriously, and trust you to do the same.

Of course, as with all things.. the clan is not entirely what it seems. Rumor has it they are a front for something far more sinister, and much, much bigger..

Join the Gokiburi-gumi today. >8D We keep you alive for less.

I'm a complete retard, so please bear with me:

If I got into SDL, there would be no requirement for me to join the Gokiburi-gumi, is that correct? Just state that I'm a part of it in the character profile, and if I pass the audition, I'm in?
