Amon's Doujima

Amon's quinque, Doujima.

A quinque (クインケ, kuinke) is a weapon invented by Adam Gehner and Yoshiu Washuu[1] that is fashioned from a ghoul's kagune.[2] Manufactured from a ghoul's kakuhou, the quinque emits electrical signals that stimulate the kakuhou to release and control the kagune. The quinque can be made into various shapes like axes, guns, shields or blades to a degree, but most still retain some characteristics of the original kagune. The quinque are named based on the ghoul's name or codename. Another difference between a quinque and a kagune is that the former cannot change its shape nor store or absorb anymore Rc cells other than what was harvested from the ghoul it was made from.

It appears that a certain type of quinque is edible for ghouls, as seen when a rampaging Ken Kaneki devours Yukinori Shinohara's Arata without any ill side-effects afterward.[3] If the same can be said about the non-armor types is unknown at the time being.

Only CCG's Rank 2 ghoul investigators and up are permitted to use quinque. The ghoul investigators transport them in bags or suitcases in order to store kakuhou.

Special Quinque Types Edit

Chimera Quinque Edit

In rare cases, a quinque can also be fused from ghouls with chimera kagune, or multiple kagunes. The most notable of these chimeras belongs to Akira Mado named Amatsu, it functions with combined koukaku and bikaku styles as one effective weapon. It can also be made possible when the ghoul in question naturally possesses two Rc types, as in the cases of Nutcracker and Hinami Fueguchi.

Chimera quinque are useful for opposing multiple types of ghouls, though it is unknown if any combination of Rc types is possible or can occur naturally as chimera ghouls are extremely rare and the technical difficulties of fusing two Rc types together means that very few are capable of being used in the field.[4]

Kakuja Quinque Edit

Kakuja quinques are a special type of quinque created from ghouls that have cannibalized and evolved a mutated kagune, becoming a kakuja. It has been commonly shown to function as armor; protecting and enhancing the capabilities of the user by stimulating their body while equipped.

So far, it seems to not be sustainable for long since the quinque comes with the drawback of slowly biting into its user the longer it is maintained and feeds off the wearer's vigor in order to conserve energy.

Despite the vast majority of kakuja quinques taking the form of armor, there have been several instances in which kakuja quinques have taken more offensive forms such as blades. Aside from being potent melee weapons, these quinques retain special traits of the original kakuja, such as ranged projectiles, detachment, advanced kagune formation, and remote activation.

The majority of known kakuja quinques were harvested from the kagune of Arata Kirishima and used by Yukinori Shinohara, Iwao Kuroiwa, Koutarou Amon and Juuzou Suzuya. There are several exceptions, including Owl, which was harvested from the kakuhou of Yoshimura and used by Kishou Arima, and Ginkui, which was harvested from the kakuhou of Noro and used by Kuki Urie.
