Kirito Kamui is a person who cannot be detected by any scanners or by the Dominators themselves because his body contains parts of 184 different people.[1] He aids and abets criminals, including Akira Kitazawa,[2] with his ability to clarify their Hues.[2][3][4]

He is the main antagonist of Psycho-Pass 2.

Appearance

Kamui has messy black hair and purple eyes. After transplanting Shisui's removed eye into his right eye socket, he has two eye colors: lavender and purple.[4] He also has a scar on his right cheek. This visage, however, is shown to be a hologram as Kamui's true self resembles a walking corpse, a body composed of stitched skin and muscle of himself and his former classmates.[5] Besides his original appearance, Kamui is shown to use several of his former schoolmates' aged holograms.[2][3][4][6][7][8][1][5]

Personality

Kamui is the incarnation of all 184 children who have perished in a plane crash[9] during the Season of Hell and is not a single person, but a collective of all the school children that died in said crash.[1] He considers himself a modern man of medicine who is curious to learn about as many things as possible.

He is similar to the Sibyl System in that he is also a collection of collaborative minds housed in a physical body. Because of this, Sibyl is unable to render neither a Psycho-Pass nor a Crime Coefficient on Kamui,[2][10][1] which leads him to deduce that Sibyl is a flawed system of justice. He believes, rightly or wrongly, that a perfect judge should be able to evaluate itself, as well as others. Sibyl, like Kamui, is a collective and cannot be read as an individual. The difference between them is that Sibyl is able to determine if someone is likely to commit a crime while Kamui is able to determine what is clouding a person's Psycho-Pass, and then administer treatment to clear their Hue.[3][7][8][5]

Kamui is not evil in a classic sense (i.e. only interested in harming others) but is evil in his anarchistic and self-aggrandizing attitudes. His kindness is limited to doing only what is necessary to achieve his personal goals. Like Makishima, his morality is one of convenience rather than an internal code of ethics. This is in sharp contrast to Inspector Akane Tsunemori who, although she disagrees with the rigidity of the Sibyl System, seeks to work within the system rather than taking it upon herself to right perceived wrongs by manipulating the will of others and hurting those who stand in the way of a personal agenda.

History

On May 2099, Kamui is on board an airplane with his elementary schoolmates for a field trip. En route, the plane crashes into Mount Kumataka, apparently due to a problem with the airframe. While everyone else is killed during the crash, Kamui mysteriously survives.[8]

His body is badly damaged and Kamui goes through a number of difficult and risky surgeries by Doctor Masuzaki who is, at the time, working for the Togane Foundation. During these surgeries, various parts of the corpses of his deceased schoolmates are transplanted into and onto his body. This results in Kamui becoming a "ghost" to the Sibyl System as his body and the transplanted parts of his schoolmates slowly integrate, along with the personalities of their former owners.[1]

Relationships

Akane Tsunemori

Kamui is intrigued by Tsunemori, in a similar manner to the obsession of Makishima with Kogami although not to the same degree. Tsunemori calls Kamui the "champion of all those who hold a grudge against society"[11] when she gets to know him better.[5]

Mizue Shisui

Despite being kidnapped and having an eye removed, Kamui is able to turn Shisui to his side with a combination of drugs, charismatic influence and effective treatment of her clouded Hue. At first, Shisui is ashamed of her high Crime Coefficient but upon seeing her lowered Crime Coefficient as real, she becomes Kamui's ardent disciple.[4][7]

Koichi Kuwashima

Koichi was a friend of Kirito. He left school the week before the plane crash. Thus, he avoided death, but survived the loss of former friends. When he unites with Kamui, who returned to the composition with the body of all 184 children who died, he notices how unfair the Sybil System is and decides to help him destroy it. Kuwashima tells him that he believes that he is able to change the world, to which Kirito replies that he has always been his dear friend[12].

Quotes

"Heaven created neither a man above anyone nor a man below anyone."

"Putting our lives on the line, we ask you... Sibyl... can you see our color? [...] Sibyl System… if you consider yourselves the God of judgment, there is only one choice before you. The existence you need to overcome in order for you to stay as you are is right in front of you! Can you judge us?! Can you question… our color and your own?!"— Kirito Kamui to Joshu Kasei (controlled by Misako Togane)[5]
