* AFatherToHisMen: Hiroshi Kirisawa, the leader of the Special Investigations 2nd Unit, is frequently credited as the entire reason that the RagtagBandOfMisfits that makes up the unit is able to function at all, let alone as the well-oiled machine that it is. He's charismatic and dependable, encourages his men to run their investigations as they see fit, and is always prepared to back them up or take responsibility for their fumbles. He looks out for his guys off the job almost as much as he does on, doing things like regularly having the whole team over to his place for a home-cooked meal since most of them are bachelors who can't or don't cook for themselves.
