Don't make me laugh. Both you and I are trash who simply envy the happiness others have.

Shusei Kagari is an Enforcer at the MWPSB's Division 1.


Kagari is a short young man with brown eyes and short spiky orange hair, held to the side by four teal barrettes. His outfit consists of mostly black: a black jacket with rolled-up sleeves, a black shirt beneath, a red tie and black pants with two white belts. When in the field, he wears a blue windbreaker over his jacket.


Kagari is the jokester of the group and teases people on a regular basis. He enjoys portable video games and spends most of his free time playing them. He is easygoing and takes things in stride. On the job, however, he is more serious but, even then, he still maintains an air of carefree recklessness.

Despite being one of the nicest members of the team, he is also one of the most ruthless. Kagari despises the Sibyl System and the people who originally locked him away, claiming that he was glad when he heard that the people who had treated him like scum were killing one another. This is due to the fact that he has never actually felt any inclination to commit any crimes, despite the fact that he was registered as a latent criminal at the age of five, making him essentially a sacrifice made in the name of society.

Kagari makes it clear that he only works as an Enforcer because there are no other options open to him, and he is apathetic to the safety of the town's citizens and also doesn't mind the destruction of the Sibyl System. However, Kagari makes it clear that he hates Makishima, just as much as Sibyl, for his manipulation of others and genuinely wants to kill him for his crimes.

Kagari also hates people who take their freedom for granted, an attitude generated by his own exclusion from society. Still, even as an adult, Kagari enjoys playing video games[1] and eating sweets[2].


Kagari was born in Tokyo to Masanori Kagari and his unnamed wife.


Kagari in the isolation facility.

At the age of five he is flagged by a Psycho-Pass screening during the Ministry's Medical Examination for five-year-old children, resulting in him being labeled a latent criminal with a "a zero percent possibility" for rehabilitation. Left with only the job as an Enforcer with the MWPSB available to him, Kagari decides to join in 2111 to be used as a public hunting dog for assassination jobs instead of living forever in an isolated facility.[1][3]

On December 2097, while in the Rehabilitation Center, Kagari befriends a child whose name he never knows. They play games across the corridor between their cells by lip reading. The boy later tries to flee and is killed during the attempt.[4]
