All those burnt corpses that've turning up here and there lately... You ever stop to think about the families who gotta live with that loss?!Sajin Higawara to Dabi in "Expressway"
Sajin Higawara (
Sajin was a rather muscular man with turquoise eyes and light, ash blond hair that was tied into a long ponytail which hung out from his mask, as well as a long mustache. He wore a dark blue mask that covered the top of his head and appeared to wear a green and silver combat vest with tubes connected to his back.
As a hero, Sajin seemed to care much about the feelings of crime victims, such as families of murdered people. Even while facing villains, he did not hesitate to put his battle aside and rescue the officers transporting Kai from crashing their van. He was also enraged when he heard Dabi enjoy the attention he received from his serial murders, questioning the villain if he felt anything for the family members of those he killed.
After the Shie Hassaikai are defeated by the heroes, they are escorted by special police vehicles to a villain hospital in Takodana. Tomura Shigaraki, along with several other villains, arrive at the police convoy to get revenge on Overhaul and his Yakuza.
Snatch is present in one of the police cars to act as a bodyguard and quickly emerges to fight the villains after his car is attacked by Dabi. He protects the car and taunts the League of Villains, to which Tomura responds by jumping off of their own vehicle, and attempting to use his Quirk on Snatch, only to fail because of Snatch's immunity to Decay. Snatch attempts to restrain Tomura but is intercepted by Mr. Compress' Quirk, which throws the police car into the air.
Snatch then safely lands on the road, carrying the policeman that operated the car. After this, he is confronted by Dabi. He deduces that Dabi is the mass murderer that made the news recently, based on his Quirk and the burnt corpses they had been finding. Dabi shows joy of his infamy, and Snatch angrily attacks him with a lion-shaped sand construct while asking if he ever thought about the families of his victims. Dabi frowns and Snatch is quickly engulfed by his blue flames and then compressed into a ball along with the fire, which kills the hero since he could only transform his upper body into sand. The attack on the convoy and Snatch's death at the hands of the villains is later reported on the news.
Endeavor brought up Snatch's death to Dabi, who didn't recall the hero's name before the latter attacked, but Dabi retreated after Mirko showed up. While walking, Dabi then recalled who Snatch was from the attack on the police escort, revealing that his last words impacted him, as the blue flame villain cried a tear of blood while saying that those words went on in his head and drove him crazy.
Sandstorm: Sajin's Quirk allowed him to transform the upper half of his body into sand. He was able to control this sand with his mind, and increase the amount of it. He could even manipulate the sand into constructs, such as a lion.
He was noted to have immunity to Tomura's Quirk, as his body became countless grains of sand, and Tomura's Quirk required him to touch something with all five fingers to disintegrate it. The transformed parts are also resistant to fire, as Dabi's flames did not affect him.
