The Type-5G/1C Grau-Bear was a military labor produced by Schaft Enterprises Europe. Schaft sold the Grau-Bear to various parties, including criminals. One customized golden Grau-Bear was purchased by Tokyo yakuza boss Daina to add to his personal labor collection. Daina used his customized unit to show off to rival yakuza boss Naoya Fujioka, who had just purchased a standard Grau-Bear. The competition between the two yakuza bosses to one up each other escalated until the intervention of SV2.
