From Akudama Drive

The Boss (ボス, Bosu) is a character that appears in Akudama Drive.


The head of the Kansai Execution Department, the Boss regards Akudama as a plague on society, and her top priority is to utterly eliminate them. She is a stern woman who is strict with her subordinates.[2]


The Boss is the strict commander of the Executioners. She has high expectations for those who work under her and she does not tolerate failure.[2] However, despite her uncaring attitude, she understands the Executioners better than anyone else. She even put in place the Master/Apprentice system as a way to prevent Executioners from dying.

Still, despite her apparent kindness and empathy for her subordinates, she has also showcased to have immense ruthlessness and decisiveness when dealing with extremely important matters. This is seen during the first uprising caused by the Swindler, when unlike the Police Chief, she is able to come up with the swift and efficient solution to deal with the mass riot evolved to full blown civil uprising in Kansai by designating all rioters as Akudama in order to give her Executioners the right kill them en masse and diffuse the situation. While brutal, this quells the uprising, showing her skill and experience in dealing with such matters.

Unfortunately, her ruthlessness reveals itself to be too extreme in the long run. By using and encouraging excessive violence, the Boss participates in causing a civilian uprising.

Despite her position of power in the Execution Division, she does not hesitate to lunge at the Courier to execute him herself in the Director's Cut. She is overpowered when her tyranny causes her own subordinate to turn against her.


Boss wears a white military uniform with white boots. She has grayish hair, wears red lipstick and golden hoop earrings. She also has visible face wrinkles. While her exact height is unknown, she is shown to be taller than Execution Division Apprentice who is 165 cm tall.
