Shinsanpei Aura (安浦 晋三平, Aura Shinsanpei) is a Rank 2 Ghoul Investigator and one of the second batch of recruits to the Quinx Squad. He is the nephew of the Special Class Investigator Kiyoko Aura. He's noted to not have any special achievements in the Academy, but his potential is anticipated.
Aura is a tall young man with dark hair and bangs that cover his eyes. He wears standard office attire at the office, and the standard Qs cloak during field work.
Aura seems rather shy and becomes nervous when spoken to. When interacting with other people, he used respectful forms, such as always addressing his squad leader, Kuki Urie with his title.
Post-Rose Extermination Edit
Aura was first introduced fighting Aogiri Tree members alongside his squad. He encouraged Saiko Yonebayashi and looked out for the team. Later, he accompanied Urie to a meeting with Matsuri about their progress with Aogiri and was then dismissed to go home. However, he remained outside of the room until Urie emerged since he still had the car keys.
Rushima Landing Operation Edit
He along with the rest of his squad were assigned to the operation to exterminate the ghouls of Rushima. Their squad was ordered by Matsuri Washuu to eliminate the remaining ghouls on the beach. Five days later, he and his squad were still on the island searching for Tooru Mutsuki.
With Urie in the lead, the Quinx Squad arrived in the middle of the fight between Floppy and Mutsuki. Urie ordered them as they attacked in a set strategy. After Ching-Li Hsiao had distracted the ghoul from the back to the front, Shinsanpei stabbed Floppy in the back, yelling to Touma Higemaru so he would make the attack in time from their target's front side. Unfortunately, Higemaru was too close for Saiko to continue and complete the attack and broke the group's fluidity. Higemaru being knocked unconscious to the side, Shinsanpei met the ghoul's blow, blocking it. However, Floppy grabbed Shinsanpei's kagune, crushing it within his hand's grasp. He then took a hit to face that sent him to the ground where the ghoul sliced through his right leg, leaving him in shock.
Aura's aunt. They seem to share a positive relationship, sharing meals and Kiyoko taking an interest in Aura's personal life. She affectionately calls him "San-chan".
As Urie's subordinate, in comparison to the rest of the Quinx Squad, Shinsanpei is very formal when interacting with him, for instance, always using formal and respectful pronouns when speaking to Urie despite both living in the Chateau and knowing him for a lengthy time.
Initially he was respectful to the older man but after being informed of Sasaki's defection that led to his aunt's injuries, Aura holds hostility towards the former investigator.
