Captain Sato Masako
Nikumono Custodial Services employs many former members of military or police forces. One such employee is Captain Sato Masako. Captain Sato is a former member of the Tonarigumi who joined Nikumono five years ago. Sato is an aggressive agent, trained in urban combat who spent much of her career in the Tonarigumi dealing with border control breaches. She’s logged more hours outside the Neo-Tokyo Empire than anyone else in her division, and she’s developed the odd habit of collecting trinkets from the outside world. But her fearless demeanor hides a woman conflicted. She sees the effect that CYBERZONE has had on the Neo-Tokyo Empire—in effect, absorbing and repurposing its best citizens. She doesn’t buy into the dream of Brilliant Diamond and the rapture they propose. To this end, she’s been leveraging her influence over the Tonarigumi to leave a number of crucial Brilliant Diamond facilities open to attack. Sato truly believes in the mission of Nikumono Custodial Services; the protection of Neo-Tokyo’s citizens is paramount to her, but she keeps her charges safe. Not until they do not need their bodies any longer, but until they realize that they must inevitably return to them.
