Katsuya Mabuchi (馬淵 活也, Mabuchi Katsuya) is a Rank 1 Ghoul Investigator and is a part of Division II. He is the subordinate of Itsuki Marude and is normally seen standing beside Marude.


He has brown disheveled hair and distinctively large buck teeth. He is most usually seen wearing a white shirt and black tie.


He appears to be professional most of the time but can also be flippant at times, best demonstrated by his testament which reads "Yeah, I died. I don't need a funeral. Bye"[2]



Originally a talented Engineering student at Teihou University, he specialized in Information Engineering and was a skilled programmer. However, he began to lose interest in his studies and became absorbed in playing video games — eventually establishing himself as a famous player in competitions. An expert in first-person shooters and strategy-based games, he eventually led his team to victory at a national tournament.[3]

During this time, he was scouted by Special Class Marude and recruited to work for Division II.
