Katsumasa was Tameshi, Kotori, and Hideji's mentor and a friend of Kaito Shizuki. He developed the origami crane drone with Tameshi. His parents died in a factory accident caused by a toxic spill. He wears a telepathic implant on his brow.
Although his prideful nature means he can be hard to work with, he is well respected among his peers, and students compete to study under him. He was the first researcher to create a useful connection between a kami and modern technology. His greatest accomplishment so far has been Shorikai, a mech with a kami bound to it.
