"There are countless ingredients that make up the human body and mind, like all the components that make up me as an individual with my own personality. Sure I have a face and voice to distinguish myself from others, but my thoughts and memories are unique only to me, and I carry a sense of my own destiny. Each of those things are just a small part of it. I collect information to use in my own way. All of that blends to create a mixture that forms me and gives rise to my conscience. I feel confined, only free to expand myself within boundaries."


Major Motoko Kusanagi is the field leader of an elite team within Public Security Section 9, tasked with protecting the public safety of Japan in the year 2030. She answers directly to Chief Daisuke Aramaki, to whom she shows great respect (though with some venting now and then). While she indulges her team's irreverence now and then, she expects their loyalty and respect and gets it, both in the field and off it.

While without question a woman of action, the Major is just as thoughtful about her condition as a cyborg, and what that existence means for her own humanity and that of everyone else. Her 'cyberization' at a very young age proved a challenge as she was growing up and having to learn how to live within a very atypical body. She can be surprisingly eloquent on this topic for those who think of her primarily as an enforcer of the peace.

"Just a whisper. I hear it in my ghost."

The Major also has a playful side, though not many people are privileged to see it. She cares about her team, and about the success of their careers, and does not hesitate to dress them down when necessary but also defend their actions against unfair accusations.

Kusanagi comes to Milliways just before the events of the first season of 'Stand Alone Complex' and before Section 9's encounter with the Laughing Man, though her typical outfit is the full-body suit of 2nd GIG. Her hair is typically a purple-blue and her eyes have a notice red tint to them. Kusanagi's body is entirely synthetic, which makes her far more rugged and strong than a normal woman of her build. She has four ports hidden at the nape of her neck which contain standard interfaces for the most prominent computer networks of 2030 Japan, though their design incorporates a flexibility that would permit adaptation to logic circuits of other worlds.

Major Kusanagi is from the series "Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complexā€¯ and was created by Shirow Masamune. She appears here solely for the purpose of role-playing in [info]milliways_bar, from which no profit whatsoever is being made.
