Daisuke Aramaki

The wise and powerful Head of Section 9 Aramaki relies upon his many international and corporate contacts to supply his team with the information they need to get the job done. Though he commands a great deal of respect he is occasionally called Monkey Man in the Manga by his subordinates perhaps because of his unconventional hairstyle/face. Seldom directly involved in police actions he is nonetheless constantly working behind the scenes to coordinate the efforts of his agents making quick and authoritative decisions and maintaining tight control of Kusanagi.
