Tomoyasu Chikazoku (
Tomoyasu is a tall and lanky man with shiny black hair that reaches his waist, worn down with a neat fringe hanging over his eyes. He has a visibly long nose and a wide mouth with notably straight teeth.
He wears a long-sleeved black turtleneck shirt and dark pants.
Tomoyasu is a steadfast believer in the ideology of the Meta Liberation Army: that human beings have a right to use their Quirks whenever and however they want. He is very loyal to the Grand Commander, Re-Destro.
In the company of others, aside from his commander, Tomoyasu generally acts in a stern and condescending manner. He becomes extremely irritated when people can't figure things out immediately from minimal details and without an explanation. He doesn't seem to realize that this is an unreasonable expectation.
Despite this, Tomoyasu does display some sense of camaraderie, wanting to kill Himiko Toga for killing his fellow Top Commander, Chitose Kizuki.
In battle, Tomoyasu is a ruthless and calculating opponent. He is not above resorting to psychological warfare, having sent duplicates of Twice after the real thing, knowing full well that Twice was traumatized by clones of himself. He calmly ordered his puppets to break Twice's arms to stop him from resisting further and reacted to Himiko's reawakening with only the minor irritation that he would have to adjust his puppets' strength in order to kill her. He appears to view his puppets as little more than fodder, even using them as chairs and to hold up his laptop while he commands the rest from a secure vantage point.
He later shows a more maniacal side to his personality when faced with the possibility of failure, which he seems to fear greatly. His eyes pop out and develop crazed swirls and he turns unhinged and unstable, mumbling and muttering obsessively to himself that he didn't fail. As seen when he initially failed to capture Twice and killing Himiko, he immediately became obsessed with not failing and denying that he did, assuring himself and his superior that everything was within his prediction, and later acted recklessly by entering into the front lines of combat himself in order not to fail, despite knowing that he was completely abandoning the strategic advantage afforded to him by his Quirk to be able to combat someone in a safe location.
Company Board Member: As a member of Feel Good, Inc's board of directors, Tomoyasu has considerable influence over its operations, as seen when he was able to use his company's influence to completely hide and remove any trace of the League of Villains and the Meta Liberation Army's involvement in the destruction in Deika City. He also managed to create believable stories to hide the true cause of Curious' death and Re-Destro's injuries, and prevent the authorities and heroes from suspecting a thing.
Audio-Video Editing: Tomoyasu is highly skilled in video editing. In the short amount of time it took to reach the battlefield where Tomura was fighting the Heroes from the Paranormal Liberation Front base while riding on Gigantomachia's back, he was able to perfectly cut together an incriminating video of Hawks killing Twice.
Leadership Skill: Tomoyasu is one of the Top Commanders of the new Meta Liberation Army, a military force that consists of over 100,000 members.
Tactical Skill: Tomoyasu was able to think of valuable ways to use Twice's Quirk, Double. An example is the ability to create clones of the Supreme Commander as a way to ensure he could continue to lead the Army, even if something happened to him. He also exploited Twice's past psychological trauma to reduce the latter's resistance by deploying puppets in Twice's likeness to retrieve him for the Army.
Laptop Computer: Tomoyasu uses his laptop to monitor situations and control the puppets he creates with his Quirk. He also uses it to splice and edit footage to create videos that can also be broadcasted countrywide.
