Born in Japan, Takuya developed communistic ideals that came in conflict with the government of 1939. He left Japan as soon as he could to study medicine in Moscow, where he came to the attention of Leonid Barofsky. Barofsky, impressed with the sincerity and fundamental communistic views of Shiraiwa, gave him the Embrace, ensuring that Shiraiwa could work forever for the Revolution and the final victory of the proletariat.
He resisted and fought Boris Yeltsin's rise to power and even schemed to assassinate him when he found his sire dead and torn into pieces. Shiraiwa fled to Sweden, where he contacted other Brujah idealists. He was chosen for an expedition into the Anarch Free State, which was regarded with favor from Shiraiwa, feeling that a true regime of the people could still arise from the chaos. His future fate is lost in the chaos of the collapse of the Free State.
