Eizo Tanuma ( () (ぬま) (えい) (ぞう) Tanuma Eizō?)[3][1] is a police detective of the Police Force in My Hero Academia: Vigilantes.

Appearance

Eizo is an older man with short, dark hair and is starting to get bald because he has a receding hairline. He also has a thin beard.

He wears a dark-colored suit, a black waistcoat and a plain tie.

Personality

In contrast to his partner Naomasa Tsukauchi, Eizo has a more affable, calm and relaxed behavior. However, this does not mean that he does not take his job as a detective seriously or that his deductive abilities are depleted, as his conjectures are usually quite accurate. He is also someone who knows more than he pretends, being one of the few people who knows Knuckleduster's past as the hero O'Clock.

Abilities

Keen Intellect: As a detective, Eizo has fairly developed deductive skills, being able to conjecture and speculate quite rightly about the plans, motives and intentions of a villain or a criminal organization with the information available to him at the time.

Quirk

Healthy Legs (健脚 Kenkyaku?): It is unknown what Eizo's Quirk is capable of.
