Susanoo is a character from the Akame ga Kill anime and manga.
A living, self-aware Teigu. Despite not being human, he has a personality and quickly bonds with the other members of Night Raid.
In the XP4 fics, Susanoo debuted in the XP4 Heroes Coalition - Neo-City Diaries.
In the AWA fics, Susanoo is a student at the AWA Academy and yet to make an appearance.
Susanoo is a tall man, he has a messy blue hair with bull-like horns coming out of the sides of his head, he has blue eyes and a thin goatee. He wears a white sharped double high-collared robe with over-sized sleeves over a black turtlenecked long-sleeved muscle shirt and a brown circle bod strapped across chest, black sash is wrapped around his waist with two hip armors dangling on each sides, white baggy pants, a brown shin guard underneath a black leg warmer, white socks and brown slippers.
Susanoo was a perfectionist who always noticed flaws in the others' appearance, even in the heat of a battle, as seen when he pointed out Desta-Ghoul's asymmetrical bones while fighting it. He always tried to fix such imperfections when he could, as seen with Tatsumi's shirt and Mine's hair. He was also quite straightforward and, while respectful towards his allies, had little understanding of human concepts, such as friendship; however, he was eventually able to develop bonds with his fellow Night Raid members.
Susanoo's life was spared and later joins the Heroes Coalitions as part of Night Raid. He also attends the Vanguard Academy as a student.

Susanoo was a biological Teigu, and the first one shown in the form of a human being. Because of his nature as a Teigu, he is able to regenerate injuries as long as his core is not destroyed. He also seems to be immune to poisons and toxins that would kill ordinary warriors. He wields a stave-like weapon called Wolf Fang Mace with blades protruding from it and is extremely proficient in battle.
