Doctor Kenzo Tenma is a Japanese neurosurgeon working at the Eisler Memorial Hospital in Duumlsseldorf. At the beginning of Monster he is favored by the department director for his prodigious surgical skill. After a crisis of conscience he chooses to save the life of a young boy instead of the city039s mayor and is unjustly demoted as a result he then becomes suspect for murder when the department director and several prominent doctors are killed weeks later. It is only after nine years that Dr. Tenma learns the perpetrator of the hospital murders is none other than the boy he saved years before Johan Liebert. Plagued by guilt he resolves to find Johan and end the life of this quotmonsterquot he feels responsible for creating. Despite his mission Dr. Tenma is a humanitarian who genuinely cares about the lives of others. These acts of kindness make him very influential with the people he meets.
