Sasaki Haise

Voiced by: Hanae Natsuki

A kind leader, who doesn’t know his past. He is the mentor of the CCG’s Qs (pronounced ‘Quinx’) Squad, which were created to be stronger than Kishou Arima’s investigation team. He is living with the members of his group to teach them well, but there are many troublemakers surrounding him. He has a great sense of responsibility and is very gentle. He does not remember anything from the last 20 years and treats his superior Akira Mado and Arima as if they were is parents.

Kuki Urie

Voiced by: Kaito Ishikawa

A second generation investigator, driven by revenge and the desire to be promoted. The squad leader of the Quinx Squad. He is very smart and graduated the academy in no time. He has sharp observation skills and good in combat. However, he is not very cooperative. He likes to work alone and looks down on the other members. He can’t express his feelings well and gets jealous easily. His father is a former investigator who was killed in a battle against the One-Eyed Owl. To get revenge, he aims to be promoted to the S3 Squad, which is the group his father belonged to.

Toru Mutsuki

Voiced by: Natsumi Fujiwara

One of the investigators-to-be. He loves to call Sasaki as ‘sensei’. His parents were killed by ghouls and his past is protected by the Academy. He is serious and shy and is weak at the sight of blood. Even though he works hard on investigations, he doesn’t bring home results. He tends to compare his physical strength to that of the other members of the Quinx Squad and after every mission, he worries about the amount of his growth. The left eye is always hidden behind a patch. His rc cells, which are higher in a ghoul’s body, are lower than that of the rest of the group’s and he can’t activate his kagune.

Ginshi Shirazu

Voiced by: Yuma Uchida

A bad boy with a strong sense of loyalty to his friends and colleagues. Born on 8 March, Pisces, blood-type A, 176cm, 55kg, CCG 3rd rank investigator.

A young character with teeth that look like a shark’s. For some reason, he is obsessed with money and has joined Qs for the monetary rewards. He is simple and very straightforward and, if given responsibility, works very hard. Even though he looks very aggressive on the outside and speaks and behaves very roughly, he cherishes his colleagues. He often fights with Urie, who has a completely different character than him.
