Shio Ihei (伊丙 士皇, Ihei Shio) was a former ghoul investigator and alumni of the Sunlit Garden. He served as one of Kishou Arima's personal squad until his defection at Cochlea. He and his squad served as one of Ken Kaneki's bodyguards.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Shio was a young boy with short, white hair. He frequently wore the white trench coat typical of members of his squad.

Personality[edit | edit source]

He had an energetic and playful youth, in spite of his harsh upbringing. Among the three members of his squad, he was by far the most talkative and outgoing.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Past[edit | edit source]

Not much was known about Shio's past aside from the fact that he was one of the Half-humans who were trained from the Sunlit Garden to be talented investigators.

Third Cochlea Raid[edit | edit source]

Tasked to protect Cochlea, Shio and the rest of Squad Zero later encountered Ken Kaneki beside Kishou Arima's corpse. After being granted permission to say their goodbyes to their late mentor, Squad Zero gathered around the dead investigator and mourned his death. [2]

Shio and the rest of Squad 0 followed Kaneki deeper into Cochlea and encountered Eto Yoshimura who was critically injured on the floor. Later, Squad 0 aided Kaneki in intercepting the fight between Kiyoko Aura and Mougan Tanakamaru against Touka Kirishima, Ayato Kirishima, Renji Yomo, Kazuichi Banjou, and the members of Banjou's crew.[3]

Post-Third Cochlea Raid[edit | edit source]

After waking up Kaneki, Shio and the rest of Squad 0 proceeded to leave :re for breakfast. Later that day, they attended a meeting wherein Kaneki announces the formation of their new organization, Goat.[4]

Clown Siege[edit | edit source]

Post-Clown Siege[edit | edit source]

Goat-Wipeout-Operation[edit | edit source]

During the attack of the CCG at Goats headquaters he was seen along the rest of his squad defending fleeing ghouls from Hajime Hazuki and Koori Ui and several other investigators. After doging one of Hajime's attacks, he was told by Hirako to fight as if his oppenent were a ghoul and stop seeing him as a human. Eventually, he and Rikai were killed by Hajime and their heads were brought by the latter to Kaneki.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Ken Kaneki[edit | edit source]

Shio, along with the other former members of Arima's personal squad, protected Kaneki and followed his orders.

Kishou Arima[edit | edit source]

Shio seems to respect and admire Arima and was willing to fullfill his last wish to protect Kaneki even if this meant to betray the CCG.

Take Hirako[edit | edit source]

Yusa Arima[edit | edit source]

Powers and Abilities[edit | edit source]

Half-human Physiology: As a half-human hybrid, Shio possessed enhanced physical abilities that allowed him to be a highly-efficient fighter.

Swordsmanship: Though young, he was already an accomplished quinque-user capable of taking on more experienced opponents. He had exterminated many ghouls early into his career, in spite of only being 14 years old.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being the youngest, he had the highest extermination rate among the half-human trio.[1]
