Yuri Shibanokuji is the current chairman of Evo and alongside Buttercup has controlling interest in the company -- combining for 51%. He is an orc that has successfully re-branded and re-located the corporation from Yamatetsu in Japan to Evo in Russia. He is largely responsible for Evo's meta-friendly attitude and progressive employment: in sharp contrast to the prior racist attitudes of the Japanese controlled corporation. His father Tadamako Shibanokuji was founder of the original corporation.
