Yuno Sykk is a character role-played by Sykkuno.
"I'm just a hacker for fun."
Yuno Sykk is a famous criminal and bank hacker in Los Santos. Arriving to the city with few goals in mind, he has grown to be one of the most popular individuals in the city among criminals, civilians and law enforcers alike. Because of his amicable and sweet behavior, people enjoy his presence and are eager to spend time with him regardless of what he has in mind.
Beyond general crime, through his time in the city, Yuno has busied himself with a variety of endeavors such as getting himself involved with almost every criminal faction in the city, getting various positions in a plethora of workplaces (that he doesn’t attend), and more recently, teach other people the ways of criminal life the same way he was taught. Down to hang out with just about anyone, Yuno spends his time in the city making new friends and reinforcing previous relationships through fun (and often illegal) activities.
"I'm a bit self-conscious."
Yuno mainly sports grey pants, a green suit jacket, and an armor-vest replica over a white collared shirt. He is also infamous for a black bike helmet (which he wears due to his insecurities about his lack of eyebrows), a black undermask, and white, glow-in-the-dark shoes with lights of varying colors, which he pairs with all his outfits. While this style choice is not particularly appreciated by most of his criminal associates (especially the ones that have found themselves running away from the cops during a getaway with him), it has become his trademark and Yuno now has a line of shoes, named the Air Force Yunos, in his honor.
Originally leaning towards colorful clothing, Yuno slowly started wearing darker/muted clothes during jobs, while still almost always keeping his helmet and trademark shoes on. His reasoning behind this would often come back to the fact that he “didn’t look like himself”.
Recently, Yuno started showing interest in tattoos and eventually got one in order to encourage his twin, Ray Mond, to get one herself.

"I just want to be friends with everyone. I'm even friends with the cops. They're super nice. Everyone is... You just have to show them that they are. Sometimes people just need someone who believes in them. Everyone in this city just hates each other. The cops, the criminals... I think I’m the only one who can make a difference."
Eventually returning to Los Santos, and despite still feeling slightly out of place, Yuno tried his best to once again find activities he enjoyed around the city. Rekindling some old relationships and continuously spending time with various members of the Cleanbois and their common associates, Yuno slowly started having fun again and established a handful of loose goals for himself to keep himself focused, the idea of owning a car from the Tuner Shop being his main long-term objective.
Having always enjoyed the thrill of the chase and his usually friendly conversations with cops, Yuno seeked to continue such interactions and was increasingly disappointed when no officers would show up to any illegal activities he did —even the more severe ones, like the Bobcat Security heist he performed—. Slowly realizing that such a pattern continued throughout the days, the desperate for action criminal would become more and more reckless in his behavior during heists and even stopped changing his clothes for crime as he didn’t think cops would ever show up. Because of this, and knowing that he wanted to have fun, his friends would constantly indulge Yuno’s requests to drive in front of MRPD during boosts and heists, and Tony took it upon himself to force the situation by kidnapping the Mayor in the middle of their infamous Burger Shot heist. Regardless, the pattern of cops ignoring Yuno during crime would continue much to the disappointment of the young criminal.
Upon his return, Yuno struggled with a —occasionally recurring— gambling addiction, the money he’d saved before his departure rapidly dwindling to the point that he fell into a genuine need for money. As his primary source of income had always been banks, and he wasn’t able to perform as many heists as before, Yuno would slowly seek for alternative ways to earn money to fuel his insane heists and everyday necessities.
Outside of Los Santos, Yuno has many friends he met online with whom he sometimes hangs out whenever he needs to recharge his energy and motivation. Some of them live in Block City, reason why he once planned a long trip to such city. When he left Los Santos to take a break, Yuno decided to take a long trip to visit all his friends and explore different places and activities with them.
Being a very goal-oriented person, Yuno’s activities in the city are often driven by his efforts to achieve very specific tasks. Below are some of the most relevant desires, objectives and accomplishments he’s had:
|Paleto Bay, Procopio Drive 23||Purchased for Yuno by Lang Buddha for $244,400 as a birthday present and registered under Dreah Johnson's name. The house was picked by Raymond Romanov, as he remembered Yuno liked it from their house hunting trip, and it is close to Tony Corleone's house.|
|Vinewood Hills, Ace Jones Drive||Renovated for them under Dean Watson's supervision and sold for $3,000,000, the grand and homey Clean Manor is meant to be a hub for the Cleanbois to plan their many (illegal) activities around the city, as well as provide a safe place for the members to rest and spend time together.
|Rockford Hills, Portola Drive||Purchased by Marlo Stanfield and Fiona Stewart after a long time of saving up, the grand Bean Manor provides a cozy space for their ever-growing family to hang out and enjoy a variety of indoor and outdoor activities together.|
|Sultan Mk III||After finally saving up enough money for his first legally owned vehicle, Yuno was able to purchase a Sultan Mk III for $143,750, which he got as a nod to X's Sultan Mk II.|
Currently, “The Sooltan” is painted pearlescent Nautical Blue with a black undercoat, and is fully upgraded.
|Sultan Mk II||A wondrous Sultan acquired by Tony Corleone during a boosting job. Knowing how much Yuno liked the car in general, Tony decided to gift it to the hacker once he had retrieved it with the help of Bjorn Corleone and Mickey S. Yuno plans to use it during heists with the group.|
Originally emerald green, his car is currently painted Salmon Pink with a green pearlescent. Because of the color, April Fooze has named the car “The Watermelon”.
|Vagrant||A small off-road buggy Yuno acquired for 54 GNE during a boosting job. Although hesitant to VIN-scratch it at first, Raymond Romanov’s encouragement drove the hacker to accept the contract and after driving it for a bit, he slowly grew to like the vehicle.|
Because of its shape and size, Yuno plans on painting the car in some shade of green to match the name he gave it: “The Streetle”.
|Reliant Robin||A VIN-scratched vehicle acquired by Fiona Stewart during a boosting job. Believing the small car to be hilarious, she decided to make it her own and took it to Bean Manor with the purpose of letting any of her adoptive children borrow it. She would later collect a handful more to use them in the Scamily Race Event, where Yuno would eventually win the small car as a consolation prize.
|Ninja ZX10R||A reliable motorcycle acquired for 151 GNE by Raymond Romanov with the help of La Flare Davis and Shivvy. Knowing how much Yuno wanted a VIN-scratched bike, Raymond secured the vehicle, added a harness and NOS and gifted it to Yuno the next day.
|Seashark||In the spirit of setting heists faster and hoping to reduce the possibility of scuff, Yuno decided to follow Mickey S’ steps and purchased a $15,000 dark blue jetski to use during his illegal endeavors.
|BMX Bike||Originally purchased for $500 with a hilarious Fleeca heist in mind, as soon as the adventure was over and Yuno had parted ways with Mickey S (who also bought a bike), the hacker determined that it’d be an useful tool for future endeavors whenever he felt like playing around with the police.
|Stratum||A fully upgraded vehicle purchased by Lang Buddha following the Cleanbois's increased need for a reliable four door to commit crime in. Originally shared by Lang, Yuno, Tony and Raymond, the car slowly fell into disuse and was eventually gifted to Mickey S for his birthday, in hopes that their new member would use it during exciting fun heists.
|Sandking XL||Adventuring into the world of VIN scratching boosted vehicles, Yuno decided to try his hand at it with a large Sandking with which he’d be able to perform stunts. Purchasing the contract for 16 GNE and assisted by Lang Buddha, Bjorn Corleone and Lando Stormborn, Yuno successfully acquired his vehicle and immediately started searching for tricks.
Originally refusing to join a group or organization, through time Yuno has joined certain crews for his usual criminal endeavors. Despite this, Yuno has made friends with several members of various gangs, businesses and departments, who he will often interact and associate with.

Operations of a Vehicle
Throughout his time in the city, Yuno has demonstrated a variety of abilities that aid to his criminal activities.
Despite originally being stubborn in his resolution to not shoot anyone unless absolutely necessary, Yuno sparingly demonstrated that he never necessarily lacked the skills, instead only needed practice. This became evident during his first Bobcat Security heist, where he single-handedly took down ten guards by one-tapping them in the head, rarely stopping as he went down the hallways and getting grazed by bullets only a couple times, all while wearing no armor.
Continuing to display similar skills during more Bobcat heists and even outside of them, Yuno has slowly grown more comfortable with the idea of shooting at others, particularly when he or his crewmates are holding valuable items. In tense moments like these, Yuno is often the first one to draw his gun out, presumably because of his tendency to space out during conversations and pay attention to his surroundings instead. After his break from the city, Yuno became much more comfortable with shooting and would often fire his gun at the air and locals in an attempt to draw out the cops.
With most of his friends being excellent drivers, Yuno is their passenger more often than not, a position that allows him to share information whenever they’re in the middle of a chase. Having improved over the months, Yuno has demonstrated on multiple occasions how assertive his indications are, easily spotting all the police cruisers behind them, whether or not they have visibility, and if they’re trying to make some kind of obstructive maneuver.
Raymond Romanov, Ramee El-Rahman and Irwin Dundee have mentioned in the past how useful the information he shares is, often not bothering to double-check the data relayed to them as they trust Yuno. While riding with more inexperienced drivers, Yuno is also good at keeping them calm and focused on their driving.
Despite preferring to leave the planning process to his crewmates whenever they’re preparing for a heist, and oftentimes having no objections towards the strategies used by his friends no matter how crazy a plan might be (in fact, he leans towards the absurd and insane), Yuno has demonstrated in multiple occasions to have good awareness of potential weaknesses to plans. As such, he’ll often point out ways the police officers might catch up to them, constantly providing solutions to small issues and frequently proposing back-up plans in case they need them. He tends to prefer creativity over the much safer “rat plans”, but he acknowledges that sometimes those are the only ones that work; however, he’ll always try to add “spice” so that all parties involved can have more fun.
Inspired by Jean Paul and Randy Bullet, Yuno joined an online class to learn how to hack, earning a degree shortly before hacking his first bank. Discovering that he had a natural prowess for it, Yuno continued hacking and quickly became one of the top hackers in the entire city, earning his title as the best after successfully hacking the Vault by himself in more than one occasion, each time faster than the last. Despite being quicker than average, he tends to focus more on taking things slowly and getting the answers right, his philosophy being that it doesn’t matter how fast a hacker is or how many tries they need, all that matters is that they can successfully hack the bank.
After successfully one-shot hacking the Lower Vault —being the first one to do so—, Yuno realized he barely struggled at all during any of the “easier” hacks, the answers coming to him naturally without having to repeat the numeric sequences aloud. When the security systems were enhanced, Yuno struggled slightly to get adjusted to the new mechanism, yet he managed to successfully hack a Fleeca bank after less than fifteen minutes of practice. Similarly, after his break and despite not practicing whatsoever for over a month, he was able to get it done on the second try.
Adventuring into the Vault for the first time, Yuno shyly requested for Lang Buddha’s permission to try the thermite at least once, being as surprised as his crewmates when he got it first try, without any errors. Holding the record for fastest thermiter in the city, Yuno seldom fails to deploy the explosive device, mastering the skill with ease thanks to his almost photographic memory. During his birthday party at the Vault, Yuno further demonstrated his skill when he deployed some thermite to the sound of almost a hundred people singing happy birthday to him.
As time went by, the hacker showed that he no longer struggled with it in the slightest, even after long periods of not practicing at all. When Carmella Corset and her crew were preparing to hit the Vault, she asked for advice on the matter and Yuno explained that his technique had evolved from merely looking at the after-image of the pattern to a mixture of that, and memorizing certain recognizable shapes (as if playing Tetris). Months later, in order to challenge himself, he changed his technique again and would often try to memorize the shapes as odd, abstract illustrations.
Diving head first into the unknown, the first time Yuno attempted the difficult hack he was unable to crack it, even if he came incredibly close to it on his last try. Demoralized at first, the hacker made it his personal mission to succeed the next time he came face to face with the hack, taking Dean Watson’s statement about the hack being for more than one person as a personal challenge to succeed on his own. Failing for a second time and feeling even worse than the first time, Yuno spent a couple days practicing the nearly impossible task and eventually developed a technique he felt comfortable with, surprising his crewmates with his confidence when he mentioned that he could do it without back-ups.
On their third attempt, and with two USBs in his pockets, Yuno approached the computer that had caused him such a headache and easily one shot the hack, then used the second USB —which he also one-shot— just to prove to himself that he had conquered the obstacle. Calling himself the Cheat Code (a name he’d always been hesitant to accept), Yuno announced that everyone could rely on him anew.
Although not the best driver in the city, Yuno is good enough to lose cops by himself on most occasions, so long as there aren’t more than a couple cruisers behind him. Inspired by Irwin Dundee, Yuno’s driving style tends to lean towards intricate turns and clever tricks, as opposed to relying on a car’s specific attributes such as speed. Due to his inexperience, however, he struggles to use these aforementioned tricks as he is still relatively new to the city and lacks the street knowledge to find all these “cool” spots; when coached by someone, however, he’s demonstrated in more than one occasion to be a much better driver than he used to be when he first arrived to Los Santos.
To further improve his driving, Yuno became interested in street racing, and often asks for advice from his friend and master driver, Tony Corleone. While not a top racer, Yuno has definitely shown improvement in his driving and has managed to finish a plethora of “open” races despite having a much slower car. Similarly, after a month-long absence, Dundee mentioned how much better the hacker had gotten based on a silly chase they engaged in, where Yuno did some nice tricks and almost escaped on multiple occasions. Watching YouTube “highlight reels” in his apartment, Yuno started learning more and more tricks to aid in his getaways.
With bikes being a common escape vehicle during bank heists, Yuno has on more than one occasion ended up driving motorcycles by himself under extremely stressful situations. Despite being much better on cars, Yuno has proven himself to be quite good at driving motorcycles, showing particular strength when it comes to manipulating the vehicle mid-air during stunts, and has displayed natural prowess with off-roading. However, he still tends to crash a lot and fall down, making it so his escapes are not necessarily clean or they become much more difficult than they need to be.
As of recently, Yuno has become skilled enough to be able to rescue people in precarious circumstances using bikes, despite still disliking them as he is always fearful that he’ll fall down or get tazed.
As he rarely ends up driving a boat, Yuno is quite terrible at it, displaying particular struggle when it comes to turns.
He’s a little better with jet skies, but he’s only ever used them a handful of times.
Having no flying license, Yuno’s piloting leaves lots to be desired, his handling wobbly and his altitude always remaining relatively low. However, he was still able to perform relatively well during the Rainbow Road heist, where he managed to evade bullets, buildings and other obstacles during the escape.
Whether he can still do it after the manufacturer changes remains to be seen, as he hasn’t dared sit on the pilot’s seat since.
With a variety of bike-involving heists under his belt, Yuno has proven to be relatively agile and experienced when using such a vehicle to move around the city and commit crime. After one of these adventures, Yuno reasoned that the fact that he was better than average in controlling bikes mid-air (particularly BMX bikes) was that he had once spent an entire day practicing various stunts with Leyla Nightingale’s assistance, the fact that no one dedicated time to train in the use of bikes making his skills nearly unmatched.
He likes to use bikes for funny escapes, always getting a few extra for the cops so they have a way to follow him and his friends. He’s also started using them when boosting cars on his own, this to prevent himself from getting stranded and so that he can avoid lockpicking other cars. The days he’s not going to be in the city for a long time, he’ll often prefer to use his bike so that he doesn’t damage his car.
Approaching most situations with a “brains over brawn” outlook, Yuno tends to analyze conflict in a very rational and logical way, preferring to avoid unnecessary conflict whenever possible and actively picking certain options (such as never carrying a gun) to reduce the amount of negative consequences he and his crewmates will face. While his opinions are oftentimes overshadowed by bloodlust and violence, the effectiveness of his approach is undeniable as he is often the one person that gets the smallest fines and sentences whenever his crew put themselves in a precarious situation such as shootouts with the police, or potential (useless) gang wars.
During his first time being interrogated, he also displayed deep knowledge of law enforcement, giving enough information to satisfy the officers so they’d get a conviction, while keeping most details secret as to prevent them from using any of his words against him (in the shape of a raid) or his crewmates.
With a network of informants that reaches almost every faction in the entire city, Yuno is often presented with nearly unlimited amounts of information about the various events that happen every day in Los Santos. While most information tends to be relatively harmless and only provide the hacker a good chuckle, people like Riley Carter and Ursula Leichenberg tend to offer him interesting, noteworthy data about heist-related events and clues, which the hacker will easily piece together most of the time as preparation for proper field work.
Constantly visiting points of interest and taking into consideration any slip-ups from other gangs (who tend to tell him everything, even unwillingly so), Yuno is easily one of the best informed individuals in the city when it comes to robberies and illegal activities he can partake in.
One of Yuno’s natural skills and the one that becomes evident almost instantly to anyone who meets him. Despite being relatively shy and awkward, Yuno is quite good at interacting with other people when he needs something from them, be it free food or favors that range from people lying for him, to making people commit violent acts against others or themselves. However, his charisma shines the most whenever he interacts with police officers, who are typically manipulated into thinking that Yuno is innocent, or guilty of less crimes than he really is.
As such, he’s escaped from arrest hundreds of times by just being his charming, sweet self, and he has managed to avoid getting his DNA on file despite multiple officers planning on taking it by merely talking them out of it.
While Yuno is usually considered to be “loose lipped”, he tends to be very good at hiding important secrets from other people, such as the time the Cleanbois got a golden dongle they needed to hide from Chang Gang (who ultimately learned this through a third party). More importantly, Yuno tends to be very discreet in the process of committing crimes, never leaving evidence behind in a manner that forces police officers to catch him in the act if they ever want to capture him.
Discovering all kinds of information every day, Yuno has also come across certain secrets that he’s not supposed to know yet, particularly in regards to Lang Buddha’s various illegal activities (such as weed trafficking, and harboring max-security escapees). However, no one typically knows that he’s learned such facts, for he’s able to read the room rather easily and acts oblivious to any sensitive information.
Despite being chaotic and generally unpredictable, Yuno has slowly developed very specific sets of behavior during his criminal endeavors. While these patterns are always evolving, their nonchalant and playful nature remains consistent.
Following a series of bank heists, Yuno developed what could be considered a modus operandi for his after-heist endeavors.
While Yuno doesn't despise guns and sometimes shows excitement when using them, he seems to prefer less direct approaches to violence and intimidation, choosing instead more painful, complex and sadistic punishments. Such methods include:
