Koku Hanabata (
Koku is a man with reasonably long, black hair that he wears swept back, a single strand left hanging down over his face, thin eyebrows, and a small mustache. He has an angular nose and small, feminine eyes with dark blue irises. He has yellow glasses with purple-tinted lenses.
He wears a plain business suit, consisting of a white dress shirt, a black tie and a black blazer.
Koku portrays himself as a calm and level headed man, as he was not fazed by Curious' death, and instead displayed his intelligence and skills in manipulation by instead taking advantage of her death and along with using his Quirk to further motivate and strengthen his comrades instead, showing his skills as a worthy leader and military commander. He's also shown to be arrogant as seen when Spinner compared himself to the Meta Liberation army and stated how they were the same, earning his malice by insinuating that Spinner was his equal.
Like the other M.L.A. commanders, Koku is very loyal and dedicated to Re-Destro and the Liberation Army's cause, as seen when Gigantomachia appeared in Deika City, he immediately redirected his warriors towards the grand commander's location, hoping to aid him. While he was shocked upon Re-Destro's defeat and surrender, he still accepted Tomura Shigaraki as his new leader, although it was because Re-Destro told him so. As Koku mentioned towards Skeptic, he perceives Re-Destro's will as that of the original Destro and thus sees it as absolute. Despite having no complaints over the changes in leadership, he does find it difficult to watch Re-Destro grovel towards his new superiors.
Political Authority: Being a politician, Koku had some level of influence within the Japanese government and society in general. Since he's the leader of his own political party, he had full authority over it as well. However, the Hearts and Mind party was dissolved.
Leadership Skill: Koku was one of the Top Commanders of the new Meta Liberation Army, a military force that consisted of over 100,000 members. He later became a Lieutenant of the Paranormal Liberation Front.
Charisma: Koku has been noted to possess an incredible level of charisma. He was able to raise the spirits of the Meta Liberation Army members and convince them to continue fighting, even after negative events, such as the death of Curious and the appearance of thousands of Twice clones.
