Profile[edit | edit source]
Aoi lived married to Zenkichi in Tokyo, with their daughter Akane. Because Zenkichi was often busy at work, Aoi was Akane's sole caretaker. However, two years prior the events of Strikers, Aoi was accidentially ran over by Jyun Owada, who has been driving while drunk. However, the crime was pinned on Owada's secretary, whose murder is suspected to have been ordered by Owada (at the time it had been written off as a suicide). Although Zenkichi tried to investigate the truth, he had his evidence destroyed and the police forced him to step down under the premise of him being the associate of the victim. He was forced to back out after being blackmailed, threatening his daughter's life if he proceeds with the pursuit, knowing that he would otherwise cross the incredibly dangerous Masayoshi Shido's path. Since then, Zenkichi and Akane transferred residence to Kyoto, where her grandparents are present.
Due to the incident, Akane has grown to become resentful of Zenkichi, partly also because he used to consider her as a burden, and she was more often than not left alone at home, where she becomes fervent with the Phantom Thieves solely because she thought that they would crush the police.
