Hooguro (ホオグロ, Hōguro) is a member of the White Suits and subordinate of Naki.

After Aogiri Tree is disbanded, Naki joins forces with Ken Kaneki, becoming part of his organization named Goat, bringing the White Suits, including Shousei, along with him.

Appearance Edit

Hooguro is a slim young man, with light-colored hair in a chin-length bob that covers his left eye. He wears makeup over the right side of his face and a zebra-patterned scarf.

Personality Edit

Hooguro seems to sometimes take advantage of people, as shown when he asked Kanae for more payment after noting that the employer is rich. Hooguro has also displayed a high degree of loyalty to his boss, Naki, as he said to his fellow subordinate, Miza, that he would kill her if she makes fun of his boss again.

Plot Edit

Rose Extermination Edit

Hooguro is one of the hitmen hired by Kanae von Rosewald to take out the Quinx Squad. He and Shousei distracted Sasaki to separate him from his squad. The two ghouls and their fellow White Suits were easily overpowered by Sasaki though, causing them to flee in fear right after the rest of the Quinx Squad arrived back.

He was later back at the Aogiri base with Shousei where they are told by Naki about Kanou's plan to "revive" Gagi and Guge.

He took part in the ambush of the CCG vehicles following the Tsukiyama Family Extermination Operation, stealing Ginshi Shirazu's body.

Rushima Landing Operation Edit

During the Rushima Landing Operation, Hooguro along with remaining members of Aogiri Tree and the White Suits engaged Squad 3 in combat. He was one of the few Aogiri members who escaped Rushima.[2]

Post-Rushima Landing Operation Edit

Hooguro was present during Goat's gathering and Naki and Kaneki's conflict.[3][4]

Clown Siege Edit

Relationships Edit

Naki Edit

Hooguro has a great sense of loyalty to his boss, as he is willingly following Naki's leadership, even though knowing that Naki is not strategic and that he will meet eventual death from investigators. Hooguro states that the reason he is Naki's underling is because he wants to work for a boss that would remember him even after his death.

Yakumo Oomori Edit

Hooguro and Yakumo's exact relationship is currently unknown, but it has been stated that he was once his underling before Yakumo's death. Hooguro also states that he thinks Yakumo is " super cool."

Powers and Abilities Edit

Ghoul Physiology: Due to his ghoul nature, Hooguro has a rinkaku kagune. His rating was assessed by Sasaki to be approximately A+ after he and Shousei fled.

  • Rinkaku Kagune: Hooguro's kagune has two small and thin double jointed structures emerging from the centre of his upper back which form a long straight detailed blade when they meet eachother. The blade can easily cut straight through anyone he slashes at, as seen through his battle with the Oggai.

Trivia Edit

  • Hooguro has been shown to give nicknames to other Aogiri members, an example being "Little Bin" for the Grave Robber.
  • Hooguro shares the same birthday with Rize Kamishiro.
