The Execution Division Junior (処刑課後輩 Shokeika kōhai) is a character that appears in Akudama Drive.
A newcomer to the Kansai Police Execution Division, paired with the (former) Execution Division Apprentice. He has a strong feeling of justice, but he is afraid of the Akudama. He's a very modest type of person. [...]
Following the death of Execution Division Master, the Junior is to replace him as his former Apprentice's duo. He becomes her apprentice despite her unwillingness to work in a pair again.
The Junior wears the Execution Division uniform, composed of a white military-like costume with black hems and buttons, a red belt and black shoes. He has blue eyes and sports a blonde bowl cut. He also carries an energy sword for him to use against the Akudama.
A newcomer to the Execution Division, the Junior appears to be inexperienced in combat, although he is assumed to have undergone solid training. Fearing the arrival of Akudama, he draws out his sword, but appears to be very nervous.
The Junior, due to his duo's, the Execution Division Apprentice, orders to let her do all and any work, never partakes in a fight. Immediately struck by the Doctor during their confrontation, he reveals himself to be able to stay calm and still despite his life being in danger, which undoubtedly scares him.
