Every school of thought and government has failed in this city, but I love it nonetheless. It belongs to me as much as it belongs to you.Kim Kitsuragi
Kim Kitsuragi is a man dedicated to fairness in an unfair city and a measured sepia counterpart to your amnesiac protagonist's unhinged attempts to grasp reality. You can earn your way into his good graces, and as you do you can gain insight into Kim's life, one marked by being an outsider wherever he goes, an orphan of failed revolutionaries, a gay man, an other. In a world shattered by politics and increasing division, he remains distinctly human and courteous. He's made peace with the ineffectiveness of the systems -- his explanation for why there were two officers sent for the same case is a grimace and the phrase 'pissing contest' — and yet he protects others as much as he can while adhering to a code both personal and professional.
