Initially beginning as a naive member of a biker gang in the squalor of Neo-Tokyo, very early on Tetsuo crashes his motorbike whilst attempting to avoid a mysterious child in the road. This event causes his latent psychic abilities to manifest; these powers rapidly grow, and very quickly he becomes an almost unstoppable force that even he himself is unable to control. Tetsuo is very emotionally unstable, suffering from an acute inferiority complex and a need to prove himself to others.
