Role in the SeriesEdit
The release of King Bileygr has an enormous impact upon the public, as it is a novel written by a ghoul and features a sympathetic ghoul protagonist. Eto Yoshimura uses the novel to create controversy, causing both an interest in Ghoul Rights and criticism of the Commission of Counter Ghoul. Protests erupt as a direct result, and among the employees of the organization, unease begins to spread.
The novel intentionally draws attention to the Washuu Clan, with several people noting the similarities between them and the villains of the story. This suggestion of a wide-spread conspiracy within the organization prompts Itsuki Marude to begin an investigation, leading him to uncover the true nature of the CCG's leaders. Armed with this knowledge, he confronts and assassinates Yoshitoki Washuu.
Aogiri Tree executive Ayato Kirishima speculates the novel is also intended to inspire ghouls, paving the way for the arrival of the One-Eyed King. The character of Nameless and the One-Eyed King bear numerous similarities, leading Ken Kaneki, who at the time worked for the CCG as ghoul investigator Haise Sasaki, to theorize it is intentional. After accepting the title of One-Eyed King, Kaneki follows the story's path by forming the revolutionary organization, Goat.
