Introduction
Alright, listen. I'm gonna say something good. Look at our emblem. There are three swords, right? This first one is me, the second one represents Izumi, and the last one is... My second sword. In other words, you're still a novice, so no getting puffed up. [...] Kunichika, you're the crescent moon on the back.

Kei Tachikawa to Takeru Yuiga, in Masato Kageura.[1]

Tachikawa Squad (()()(かわ) (たい), Tachikawa-tai?) is the A-rank #1 Squad in Border. It is led by Kei Tachikawa.

Uniform[]

The squad's uniform consists of a long black coat with red vertical stripes somewhat similar to pinstripes and five straps to fasten it, and also black pants and boots.

Emblem[]

The squad's emblem consists of three Katanas in front of a crescent moon. According to Tachikawa, the first blade represents himself, the second represents Izumi, and the third represents his second sword, while the crescent moon in the back represents Kunichika[1], but it was later revealed the third sword is their former member, Kyōsuke Karasuma.[2]

Background[]

Tachikawa Squad's third member used to be Kyōsuke Karasuma until around a year ago (as of Chapter 39) where he and Shiori Usami transferred to Tamakoma Branch for unexplained reasons[3], however Takeru Yuiga took his place as the third member ever since.[4]
