Inspector Akane Tsunemori
|0106 Return of the Lunatic Prince|
Joshu Kasei (禾生 壌宗 Kasei Joushuu) is the former Chief of the Public Safety Bureau. In that role, she oversaw the various departments that comprise the Bureau, including the Criminal Investigation Department.
Kasei is a slender android with steely gray eyes and short gray hair. She dresses in a professional manner, wears oblong wire-frame corrective lenses and earrings.
She comes across as distant and cool towards all those around her. She is seen to be a workaholic with no personal life, devoting herself entirely to her duties. She is secretive and mistrustful, confiding in only a few chosen individuals information regarding the job at hand on a need-to-know basis. She displays keen interest in Akane Tsunemori because she believes her to be criminally asymptomatic.
It is unknown when or why Kasei was absorbed into the Sibyl System.
Joshu Kasei is the current personality inhabiting the android body being used by the the Sibyl System to operate in real time under the guise of a fully functioning human being. Multiple copies of this body exist, allowing it to be replaced quickly if it is "injured" or "killed." Due to being a shell operated by one brain at a time, the body displays the personality, habits, hobbies and language cadence of the brain occupying it.
Tsunemori is one of only two Inspectors in the PSB who are aware of Joshu Kasei's true nature, as well as the true nature of the crime controlling the bio-mechanical creature. Though conflicted about her place in society following this revelation, Tsunemori remains an Inspector with the CID in order to keep order in society until a way can be found to subdue Sibyl and awaken the populace to its actions.
