Hetare (ヘタレ, Hetare) is a cockatiel parrot who lived in Anteiku prior to its destruction.

His given name originates from the fact that Hetare (English Loser, Good-for-Nothing, or Coward) is the word he says most frequently. Renji Yomo nicknamed him Shooting Star Wing (シューティングスターウイング, Shūtingu Sutā Uingu).[1]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Hetare is a plump bird with pale, yellow feathers and grey wings. As is common with cockatiels, he has orange circles on his cheeks, and a wispy crest protruding from the top of his head. His most notable feature is the star mark on his left wing, hence Renji Yomo's alternate nickname for him.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Hinami Fueguchi found Hetare injured on the veranda of Touka Kirishima's apartment and made the decision to take care of Hetare until he healed.[2]

The two later decided to move Hetare to Anteiku as a result of Touka's ornithophobia until his real owners could be found.[3]

Yomo stayed at Anteiku overnight, as he was concerned for Hetare's well-being. He also attempted to teach him how to say "good morning," but with no success.[1]

In the months following the 11th Ward Battle, Hetare was kept by Kaneki's group in their apartment in the 6th ward.[citation needed]

After the destruction of Anteiku, the survivors scattered. He was seen with Kazuichi Banjou and Hinami.[citation needed]

He is seen with Ichika and Yomo at the end.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
