Akashi Kobayashi (小林 昭, Kobayashi Akashi) is a ghoul that resided in the 1st Ward and he was also working as a taxi driver.
Akashi is a short, stout man, with plump cheeks and appears to be in his fifties. As a taxi driver, he wore a formal suit and tie.
As a way to blend in with the human society, Akashi often portrays himself to be quite a cheerful, friendly man. While his occupation is associated with transport, his main hobby is making confections; something he finds comfortable, but is flustered about admitting. As a ghoul, Akashi seems proud of the extraordinary sense of smell his nose possesses, as he is shown to have a fetish for flesh and blood.
Torso InvestigationEditarBelieving him to be Torso, the target ghoul, Kuki Urie boarded Akashi's taxi in an effort to exterminate him. Urie percieved Akashi's friendly facade to be fake, and confronts him once they stopped at the desired location. Urie then battled, and eventually incapacitated Akashi. As Urie was about to kill him, he was stopped by Haise Sasaki. Later on Akashi was revealed to be the wrong suspect; as he was not Torso. He is later shown contained in Cochlea.
