Run is a character from the Akame ga Kill anime and manga.

A kind and charming man enlisted by Esdeath into the Jaegars. Run hails from a small rural village, and joins the Jaegers in hopes of one day reforming the Empire from within.

In the XP4 fics, Run debuted in the XP4 Heroes Coalition - Neo-City Diaries.

In the AWA fics, Run is a student at the AWA Academy and yet to make an appearance.


Run was a young man with fair blond hair and golden eyes. He wore a white robe on top of a black shirt and pants with a brown belt, a feather pin behind his ear and a collar-like accessory on his neck. In his first few appearances, he was seen carrying a book.

He was also shown to have a winter outfit with a white jacket and a scarf, while he also wore formal suits on several occasions. During his days as a teacher, he wore a suit with a vest and a cloak, as well as a pair of glasses.


Run was calm, collective, and polite. He had never been shown to raise his voice or give in to anger, and was determined to make his goals a reality. He was not above using dishonorable methods to reach his goals, such as seducing women and deceiving his enemies to gain their trust; as seen when he was pretending to try to get into Wild Hunt by faking humbleness to its members and bribing them while in truth, he was gathering incriminating evidence against them.

While being merciless if not cruel towards his enemies, Run was willing to defend civilians, and clearly detested Wild Hunt, hiding his anger regarding the public execution of the Imperial Fist disciples. He also was very caring to his fellow Jaegers, and was present during the mourning of his fallen comrades. He grew especially close to Wave and Kurome, and was willing to risk his life to protect them. Even after his reanimation he still showed his yearning to care for them, proving that it was one of his strongest desires.

In Chapter 22, Run, alongside Bols, Kurome and Wave, are seen in the cafeteria in the Training Camp when Esdeath arrives and reconciled with them.


Run's Teigu is called "Thousand-Mile Flight: Mastema". Its basic skill gives Run a pair of wings that allow him to fly and unleash piercing feathers to strike foes. It also has a trump card, which allows him to reflect attacks.

He was shown to have quick reflexes, both while flying and in hand-to-hand combat, being able to keep pace with Esdeath's initial attacks when she comes to test the Jaegers. He had shown a certain degree of endurance as he was able to stand up, fight and fly even after being fatally injured in an explosion and falling from a great height. He was intelligent and capable of deductive reasoning on par with Esdeath; he also proved to be skilled in infiltration and intelligence gathering, as well as investigating crimes.


  • In Chapter 34, Run was depicted with green eyes.
  • According to the Takahiro's postscript for volume 4 of the manga, Run's hobby was folding origami.
