Akira (アキラ) is the series’ protagonist. He is generally cold and quiet, though he has a hidden naive side. He grew up in an orphanage, along with his best friend Keisuke. Akira was the undefeated champion of a street fighting game called “Bl@ster” in the RAY district, participating under the alias “LOST.”
He was accused of a murder he did not commit and sentenced to life in prison, but hesitantly accepted an offer from Emma and Gwen to be released from prison in exchange for going on a mission for them to Toshima and participating in the life-and-death game Igura.
Akira naturally acts cold and uncaring towards most people, even including his friends. He is a man of few words, and is greatly out of touch with his own emotions, as well as the emotions of others, which causes him to come off as abrasive. Even those who are close to him don’t often know what he’s thinking or feeling. He has a indomitable will that even the most dominating people have a hard time breaking down.
Despite his cold exterior, Akira does care deeply about the people close to him. There’s a naive or childish side of his personality, that he generally hides, but which comes out under certain circumstances.
Akira has messy dark grey hair, dark blue/green eyes, and pale skin. He wears light grey jeans, an orange t-shirt, white high top sneakers, and a black bomber jacket with a hood trimmed in white fur.
He received military training his entire life, and with the addition of his time in Bl@ster, he is an expert in fighting and shown to have a quite bit of force behind his strikes. With the amount of counter attacks he displays while facing the combatants of Toshima, he is not easily defeated.
As he has a lot of experience in terms of armed and hand-to-hand combat, Akira handles his blade with the ease of a skilled fighter. As such, he is able to dispatch the lower level combatants of Igura quickly, oftentimes without injury to himself. He acquired his preferred dagger from Nano when he was young.
Since he was one of the few Bl@ster regulars, Akira’s stamina and endurance is a force to be reckoned with. As such, he can easily subdue several hostiles at once (depending on their skill level of course).
