Dr. Stylish is a character from the Akame ga Kill anime and manga.
A brilliant doctor and scientist of the Empire scouted by Esdeath to join the Jaegars. Though unparalleled in his practice, Dr. Stylish is a man of questionable morals, taking great pleasure in experimenting on living beings, especially humans.
In the XP4 fics, Dr. Stylish's life was spared and later joins the Heroes Coalition as part of the Science and Research Department. He is also an instructor at the Vanguard Academy.
Dr. Stylish was a tall man with spiky black hair with a white patch and blue eyes. He wore glasses, a yellow suit with a blue shirt, a tie, and a white lab coat.
Dr. Stylish was obsessed with two things: his experiments and anything he considered stylish. His preoccupation with the latter is exemplified in the first meeting of the Jaegers, where he had Seryuscatter rose petals through the air as he entered the room. However, his main overriding focus was on his experiments. He was shown to be both self-serving and duplicitous, going behind the backs of his superiors to obtain materials for his research (such as his attack on Night Raid) and conducting inhumane experiments in secret (the creation of the humanoid Danger Beasts). Additionally, he feigns sympathy for any of his test subjects that are injured or killed in his service but in reality, he cares nothing for any of them, seeing them only as bodies to experiment on.
He has also been heavily hinted to be homosexual and enjoyed hitting on fellow male Jaegers (except for Bols) and also offered his own test subjects “a night alone with him” if they did well.
He seemed to have been fairly well known and very well connected, having worked for several imperial agencies over time. His contacts included the unnamed commander of the Assassination Squad Group of Terror, Captain Ogre of the Imperial Police, the imperial spy Bolic, and the Prime Minister’s son Syura. Wild Hunt’s Dorothea also came to The Empire with the sole purpose of meeting Stylish but he had already perished by the time she arrived.
As a scientist, Dr. Stylish had incredible intelligence and powerful observational skills. He was the only member of the Jaegers to discern that Tatsumi’s skill in combat was too high for him to be a simple blacksmith. He was a capable strategist as well, equipping several of his enhanced soldiers to combat specific enemies as well as preparing various hidden moves ahead of time.
Stylish is renowned for his immense scientific and medical expertise, particularly the biology of both humans and Danger Beast, having performed numerous enhancements and body modifications to countless subjects such as Team Stylish and Seryu Ubiquitous. His expertise also extends to military technology, having created the ‘Judgment of the Ten Heavenly Kings’ a set of extremely powerful and advanced artillery used by Seryu Ubiquitous. Stylish also possessed great skill in the creation of poisons, with one of his most powerful being an invisible, odorless gas that could paralyze even trained assassins.
Stylish was in possession of the Teigu "Perfector", a set of gloves that immensely increased the speed and dexterity of his fingers. This Teigu, along with Stylish’s medical knowledge, enabled him to heal any injury, short of death itself. The Teigu was also the tool with which Stylish performed the enhancement surgeries on his minions and created the weapons known as the ‘Judgment of the Ten Heavenly Kings’ used by Seryu Ubiquitous. After Stylish’s death the Teigu was taken by Night Raid who then sent it on to the Revolutionary Army’s headquarters.
