Katsuo Hattori is a human male employed as an investigator at the CCG.
Katsuo is of average height and slim build. He had gray hair tied into a short ponytail with deep blue eyes. He regularly wears his CCG coat and other formal attire.
He makes it a habit to always carry a form of protection, be it his Quinque, a knife, or a designated pistol.
Katsuo aims to be polite to everyone he meets, but will cut loose once he grows accustomed to being with his co-workers.
Katsuo's old fashioned upbringing ingrained many manners and ideals he keeps to, making it difficult at times to get along with the more modern people of Tokyo.
Katsuo strongly believes in honor and valor, but accepting of new ideas and views.
Katsuo was born to a wealthy family not far outside Tokyo. The family preserved many traditions and beliefs long since forgotten in modern times, to continue the mindset carried each heir to become head of the family was taught and trained to master the weaponry and arts once treasured in ancient Japan. At the age of 18, heirs to the family are to duel the current master and take his position if victorious.
On the day of his duel, Katsuo discovered his master dead, later learning the murderer was the kakuja ghoul One-Eyed Cat. The death of his only father figure convinced Katsuo to pursue a different life outside of his family. He quickly joined the CCG's academy, as only the CCG would allow him to fight ghouls and possibly avenge the death of his master.
