Chizuru Hachisuka (ハチスカ チヅル, Hachisuka Chizuru) is a character in The Silver Case. She is a special agent in Heinous Crime Unit 2, a division of the 24 Wards Police Department.
Unlike her colleague Tetsugoro Kusabi, who prefers to use his instincts when tackling cases, Hachisuka takes a more scientific and analytical approach. This causes frequent tension between her and Kusabi.
The Silver CaseEdit
Spoilers Below: Contains Story Elements
Even though she is a member of Unit 2, she does not go on any stakeouts with Kusabi or Sumio. She is from a background that Kusabi considers ancient and impractical, Forensics and Profiling. This causes conflict between her and her co-workers, except her partner, Kiyoshi Morikawa.
case #0 lunaticsEdit
She only plays a minor role, as she is the point of contact to dispatch Republic, which introduces Akira to the story.
case #1 decoymanEdit
In this story, she is formally introduced to a mute Akira. He is dragged along with Sumio and Kusabi, as both men didn't want to leave him at IMM. She appears cordial to Akira, as she realizes his state.
After Akira finds the doll, she is seen back at HC Unit Office arguing with Kusabi about the merit of her science against his leg work. After a lecture about data, Kusabi storms off with Akira and Sumio.
case #2 spectrumEdit
Due to Morikawa's tardiness, she has to reluctantly call in a recovering Akira to answer the suicide call at Typhoon. Acknowledging to the coroner that she had to activate the rookie, she shows her venom when she sees a late Morikawa.
In an attempt to relieve Akira, both parties argue until Akira spots the young boy in the window. As Akira befriends the boy, Chizuru starts another argument with Morikawa at HC Unit Office.
This prompts her to request a transfer for Morikawa from Kotobuki. The Chief elects instead to offer her a chance to resign. He coldly remarks that she needed to reconsider her line of thinking. Deciding to cool off instead, Kotobuki sends her on leave to think about her future.
During the case, she is spotted by Morikawa and Akira, driving recklessly. Morikawa elects to have Akira finish the case while he talks to the distraught woman.
After the case is solved, Chizuru apologizes to Akira for her behavior towards him. She flippantly blames the incident on PMS and offers to go on a date with him as a show of gratitude for babysitting Morikawa.
case #4 kamuidromeEdit
During this case, Chizuru's nature becomes detached and indifferent. When remarking on the suicide of Sayaka Baian, she blamed the suicide on the victim.
This caused Nakategawa to comment on her cold hearted nature since her leave. Morikawa tries to deflect the attention away from the attitude, by commenting on the antics of Oldman and Neutral.
case #5 lifecutEdit
Chizuru is last seen normally in the IEDU Building, as the HC Unit and Public Security hunt for Kamui Uehara. As they chase the killer, Hachisuka encountered Akira and his new charge, Sakura Natsume.
Sakura started realizing the futile actions of killing Kamui. Showing the inquisitive nature that Chizuru used to have, Sakura questioned their place. But Hachisuka showed an emotionless and cold nature to the woman, promising to dispose of her when they next meet.
After her disappearance, she is charged by Nakategawa with the disposal of Kusabi and Morikawa, due to their abandonment of the mission. Akira meets her in the Mass Production Center, where her appearance now resembles Ayame.
She taunts Akira for a moment, as she was waiting on Kusabi to appear instead. With her last words lamenting her love for Morikawa, she asks Akira to kill her. Instead, she is shot twice by Sakura, with the fatal shot in the head. The last image that is seen of Chizuru is the bullet wound and a single tear down her face...
Official Silver Case website descriptionEdit
|Chizuru has a background in crime investigation based on the collection of scientific evidence and data. Level-headed and beautiful, she is the only female member, but in truth no one can stand her. There are often conflicts between her and Kusabi, who prefers to rely on his instincts when solving a case. She possesses a strong desire to advance her career, but she also harbors doubts with regard to her position and role in the HC Unit. While she constantly and swiftly rejects the persistent advances of her partner Morikawa, deep down inside she is actually somewhat attracted to him..|
Chizuru was one of 1,440 girls kidnapped by the FSO (Frontier Organization) to become a shell for Ayame Maspro. As such, she received conditioning from various programs from age 4 to 8.
The program was later shut down after they had enough stock conditioned for usage. As such, her memory was erased. She was sent to live as the daughter of Mayor Kaoru Hachisuka.
It was discovered by Kusabi in the Tamura case that she was actually the granddaughter of Hachisuka. He also discovered that Tokio Morishima was her older brother, conditioned to take the mantle of Kamui.
