Yoshitoki Washuu (和修 吉時, Washū Yoshitoki) was the Bureau Director of the CCG's Main Office and Tsuneyoshi Washuu's son. In his youth, he went by the name Chika Washuu (和修 時, Washū Chika).

Appearance Edit

Yoshitoki was a middle-aged man with wavy black hair, high cheekbones, and faded goatee around his mouth and chin.

In his younger days, he resembled Nimura Furuta.

Personality Edit

Yoshitoki was a man who carried out his duty as a ghoul investigator seriously.

Haise Sasaki noted that despite being a Washuu family member, Yoshitoki had a gentle personality and was easy to get along with.

Plot Edit

Owl Suppression Operation Edit

Washuu joined the raid on Anteiku as the commander.

During the initial phase of the war when Yoshimura entered the battle, Washuu and his eyes met. Washuu simply stated there was no reason to hate him, as it was simply part of his job.

Post-Owl Suppression Operation Edit

Alongside Kishou Arima, he appeared in front of Chairman Tsuneyoshi Washuu to discuss the results from the operation in the 20th ward.

Post-Rose Extermination Edit

Yoshitoki attended a Special Class Investigator Conference regarding Aogiri Tree. He got into a brief, but intense, argument with Matsuri over the success of the Tsukiyama Family Extermination Operation. Matsuri insisted that the only good thing that came out of Koori Ui's previous mission was the death of Noro, but Yoshitoki countered that also the Tsukiyama conglomerate was dissolved to be replaced by humans. Yoshitoki challenged Matsuri's idea of "worth" and they had a brief stare-down until they were interrupted by the on-going meeting.[2]

Rushima Landing Operation Edit

During the Rushima Landing Operation, one of the personnel informed him of Cochlea's status. Yoshitoki ordered them not to reveal the situation to everyone, as it would only have a negative effect on morale. He quietly hoped for Kishou Arima to defend Cochlea.[3]

Yoshitoki revealed to be a ghoul

Yoshitoki is revealed as a ghoul.

On the fifth day of the operation, Itsuki Marude confronted him in private with his gun drawn. He explained to Yoshitoki that while he did not simply believe the claims in King Bileygr, it made him suspicious enough to investigate. As Yoshitoki waited impassively, his subordinate laid out the evidence he discovered proving that the Washuus are a family of ghouls. Before he could protest, he was shot in the head and fell to the ground. Marude closed his eyes and prayed that he was wrong, but Yoshitoki quickly arose to his feet and attacked with his kakugan activated.[1]

Some time later, the aftermath of the battle was discovered by Matsuri. The two subordinates accompanying Marude had been decapitated during the battle, but Marude had escaped after Yoshitoki was killed. Matsuri reported his father's death to Kuki Urie, then collapsed in grief and hysterically wept for his father.[4]

Post-Rushima Landing Operation Edit

In the hospital upon hearing of the newly approved operation, Kiyoko Aura likened its tactic to Yoshitoki's.[5]

Relationships Edit

Tsuneyoshi Washuu Edit

Not much was known about their relationship, but Yoshitoki had positive feelings towards his father despite their differences and wished him a long life while braiding his hair.

Matsuri Washuu Edit

It was rumored in the CCG headquarters that he and his son did not get along well. He had been a proactive dad during Matsuri's childhood, however all his invitations to play various sports were all rejected by his son. However, after Yoshitoki's death, Matsuri was hysterical with grief.

Itsuki Marude Edit

The two had an amiable relationship as they are seen twice sitting on a bench, discussing the state of affairs, and sometimes bonded through recreational activities. Yoshitoki had a high opinion of Marude's skills, asking him to be vice commander, stating there was no one else with Marude's skills whom he could trust. He was surprised when Marude shot him when he discovered the entire Washuu Clan were ghouls.

Kishou Arima Edit

Not much was known about their relationship, while having different mothers, they shared the same father, Tsuneyoshi. Yoshitoki valued his opinion and they cooperated in matters regarding Sasaki and the Quinx Squad.

Haise Sasaki Edit

Haise and Yoshitoki shared a rather good relationship. Sasaki had been shown to think well of Yoshitoki, and Yoshitoki became concerned that Sasaki would be upset when he approved Urie's Frame Release surgery.

Powers and Abilities Edit

Though revealed to be a ghoul, his abilities and Rc type are unknown.

Trivia Edit

  • His name 吉時 (yoshitoki) resulted from adding 吉 (yoshi) to his old name 時 (chika or toki).
