There's nothing wrong with getting stronger in your own way. We all fight the Neighbors together. Everyone will say 'thank goodness Kō is strong' when they see you.

Tatsuya Kuruma to Kō Murakami, in Suzunari First.[1]

Tatsuya Kuruma (来馬(くるま) 達也(たつや) Kuruma Tatsuya?) is a Gunner and the captain of Suzunari First.

AppearanceEdit

Tatsuya Kuruma Design (manga)

Kuruma is a fair-skinned, slender young man of average height. He has medium-length, wavy light brown hair and black eyes with slit irises. In terms of clothing he shows a marked preference for collared cardigans[7][8] or sweaters[9][10] worn over a simpler shirt.[7][9][10]

When in Trigger Mode, his Border Uniform consists of a shrug jacket with vertical black stripes on the sides of the sleeves and horizontal black stripes around the collar, and matching pants. The jacket is divided in two parts, one for each shoulder/arm, connected by two straps on the front, and by the collar. The jacket also has the unit's emblem in the left chest, and Border's emblem in the shoulders. He also wears a black shirt, mint green pants and brown boots.

PersonalityEdit

Kuruma is extremely well-tempered and tolerant, known for never having gotten angry. When Betsuyaku boiled all his tropical fish to death, despite his grief, he promptly forgave the clumsy boy.[11] He is also dedicated to his teammates, biking in the middle of the rain to go visit Tetsuji Arafune to video him telling Kō Murakami that it isn't his fault that he stopped being an Attacker.[12] He is afraid of battle; however, and usually useless on his own.[citation needed]
