Saitoh Zhi Tong Hayato

An Argent City Police Detective with no empty chambers


齋藤 知痛 隼人; “太郎” (Tarou, meaning thick or big son)

Undaunted Detective
Det. Saitoh hit the ground running from day one of his job in the police force, and hasn’t stopped since. First making his name by tackling the cases nobody else wanted to handle for any variety of reasons and finishing them despite all odds, he has by now in his career solidly maintained the reputation that he does not stop until he considers a job done. No matter what.

Don’t Listen to the White Moths
Hayato grew up in his grandmother’s house—somehow simultaneously always full to the brim with people and things but comfortable and never feeling too crowded. He loved most the things that were old, covered in dust and the fingerprints of generations; the stories his grandparents told him of the lands of their birth that they left to come to Argent. This left possibly the biggest impression of his life, and has defined the stark boundaries of his interests ever since, cultivating a near-obsessive desire to learn his family’s histories and customs, collect items meaningful to them, and in the process discover more and more questions he has to answer himself.
