Ashton Irika was a young CCG Rank 2 investigator. He had only joined the CCG as his sister desired him to. He lived in the 20th ward. He was brutally killed by Kota Okada during the Wintertide Arc.
Irika had long white hair, which had been recently dyed a green-turquoise. He was slightly shorter than the average male and was also rather slim. His eye colour was blue. He would be usually found dressed in a casual attire which mainly would consisted of jackets, shirts and jeans. Despite his serious nature, he liked variety when it came to his wardrobe.
Irika was usually a loner, but would make exceptions and interact with people that he respected. He was more serious when he was alone and he'd put on an 'act' when communicating with others. When he would socialize, he'd become more talkative than usual. Despite his intelligence, he was naive on social norms. He has been shown to block out the world during times of emotional stress and enter a trance like state.
Irika and his sister attended schools with cheap tuition. This included a CCG academy, which sparked his sister's desire to become an investigator. Irika blindly followed his sister's desire and became an investigator. After his sister's death, he was determined to fix the world. He showed his devotion to his cause by punishing the ghoul who killed his sister via torture. After the ghoul began to resist the torture, they were 'killed'.
Irika first met Kouta at the last CCG training event. He respected Kouta's honesty and his persona in general.
Irika first met Hibiki at a café, after he had sent an email requesting to meet up with his co-workers. Irika was the only one to show up. Irika respected Hibiki as well.
Irika had mixed feelings for his ghoul 'friend'. He had tortured her after his sister was killed, and had even gone as far as giving her induced amnesia. He carefully tried to manipulate her and user her as a living 'weapon'. He felt a slight hatred of Takara due to their history, but aimed to keep that feeling in the back of his head. Whilst they had their differences, Irika had come to like Takara much more.
Despite only having a short conversation with her at Yuureien, Irika had come to like his squad leader. He was also very formal towards Marune.
Irika was very agile. He was also quite intelligent and a quick thinker. Due to his light frame, he wasn't very strong physically. He was capable of taking down low-ranking ghouls. A strong blow would have easily taken Irika off his feet.
- Rei: Irika's first and last Quinque was an Ukaku, to match with his fast movements. It is similar to a staff, and has Ukaku blades at both ends. Rei is also able to fire Ukaku shards at times. During it's most recent use, it has shown that abuse of the shard use leads to a failure to use shards.
