Name: Tsunoda Kenji, or just Ken
Appearance: Black straight hair, cut short, that he tries in vain to keep flat. Green eyes, from his mother's side of the family, that have a tendancy to dart around, or close when he laughs. They're usually hidden by his ARglasses, though, when on duty. Ken usually wears his police uniform, which consists of a blue polo shirt and white shirt underneath partially concealing a light bulletproof vest, and navy trousers. When off-duty, he typically wears jeans, a green t-shirt, and if it's cold a black fleece.
Personality: Ken, with a childhood filled by manga, is an idealistic optimist. He's eager to do good and help people, which is the main reason he became a police officer. Ken gets on well with people usually, and has a sense of humour that most often shows up in his puns. He tries to balance his calm self-confidence and his modesty.
History: Ken grew up reading, and loves his books and manga. He initially planned on being a scientist, and even got a degree in Physics, but with the main focus in research nowadays on robotics, he instead got a job where he could help people in a different way, and joined the Japanese police force. Here, he spent his first year mostly as a desk cop, doing paperwork and patrols of quiet areas, although he managed to distinguish himself when he chased down and caught a runner transporting narcotics via a shortcut through one of the areas he patrolled. His friendly, unintimidating manner and calm nature got him mentioned to Section 11. He now reports to them, instead, although his activities haven't changed much other than trsnsferring to the main immigrant quaters.
Faction: Section 11. Ken is supportive of advances in robotics and cybernetics, and sympathetic to immigrants. However, he isn't passionate enough about these issues to distract from his job.
Skills: Ken is familiar with the weaponry of a modern police officer, ranging from non- and semi-lethals such as the tonfa and riot shield, through to more powerful weaponry such as the standard-issue high-accuracy 10mm pistol of the police, and the revolver, typically with AP rounds, popular for dealing with robots and augmented people. However, he only carries them as the situation demands - unless he's going into a particularly rough area, he won't bring anything but his tonfa on the everyday rounds. He is also trained in Aikido, a martial art.
Special equipment: Ken has ARglasses that can provide a range of information, such as overlaying a map or providing translation. They also provide some limited protection from the blinding aspect of flashbangs, and allow communication to the station.
The revolver uses AP rounds, and the high caliber makes it effective at dealing with robots. It's overkill, however, against normal people, and the small clip and slow rate of fire mean it's poor in a firefight.
Robotics: Ken has an "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" attitude to prosthetics - they might be cool, but he sees no point in getting some unless he needs it.
