Dr. Stylish was a doctor and scientist in the service of the Empire as well as a member of the Jaegers.
Dr. Stylish was a tall man with spiky black hair with a white patch and blue eyes. He wore glasses, a yellow suit with a blue shirt, a tie, and a white lab coat.
Dr. Stylish was obsessed with two things: his experiments and anything he considered stylish. His preoccupation with the latter is exemplified in the first meeting of the Jaegers, where he had Seryu scatter rose petals through the air as he entered the room. However, his main overriding focus was on his experiments. He was shown to be both self-serving and duplicitous, going behind the backs of his superiors to obtain materials for his research (such as his attack on Night Raid) and conducting inhumane experiments in secret (the creation of the humanoid Danger Beasts). Additionally, he feigns sympathy for any of his test subjects that are injured or killed in his service but in reality he cares nothing for any of them, seeing them only as bodies to experiment on.
He has also been heavily hinted to be homosexual and enjoyed hitting on fellow male Jaegers (except for Bols) and also offered his own test subjects “a night alone with him” if they did well.
He seemed to have been fairly well known and very well connected, having worked for several imperial agencies over time. His contacts included the unnamed commander of the Assassination Squad Group of Terror, Captain Ogre of the Imperial Police, the imperial spy Bolic, and the Prime Minister’s son Syura. Wild Hunt’s Dorothea also came to The Empire with the sole purpose of meeting Stylish but he had already perished by the time she arrived.
Akame ga Kill! Zero
Dr. Stylish was shown handing Group of Terror’s commander a vial of poison that would be used to help uncover spies hiding in the villages near the capital. He demanded ten male prisoners in exchange for this.
While it wasn't shown, Stylish presumably conducted his experiments on humanoid Danger Beasts around that time. The subjects of this research were changed into mindless, flesh-eating monsters and confined in Stylish’s hidden laboratory. There were also at least two research subjects that were turned into colossal versions of these creatures and were kept on an island far to the south-east of the Empire.
Stylish is also known to have done research on a blood sample from the leader of the Path of Peace (discovering that the man was half Danger Beast) and was the one who performed the modifications to Seryu’s body.
Akame ga Kill!
When General Esdeath requested the formation of a new force of Teigu users to maintain order in the capital, Dr. Stylish was among those recruited for the group. Upon arriving at the designated meeting place he immediately took a liking to Wave, while deciding that Bols wasn't his type. As the newly-formed team headed out to meet The Emperor, Stylish suggested to decide upon its name, prompting Esdeath to do so.
Later, after Tatsumi was brought to the palace by Esdeath, the Jaegers’ first big mission arrived: the elimination of a large group of bandits hiding near Gyogan Lake. During the ensuing battle Stylish didn't directly participate but was quick to boast that the weapons being used by Seryu were created by himself through the use of his Teigu. He then proceeded to show off his personal army of enhanced soldiers.
The next day, when Esdeath decides to take Tatsumi, Wave, and Kurome hunting at Mt. Fake, Dr. Stylish was shown eavesdropping on the conversation. After Tatsumi escapes he was among those that search Mt. Fake and its surrounding area for the missing boy. Although his minion Hana was able to pick up Tatsumi’s scent trail he does not inform the other Jaegers, instead continuing to follow the trail with two more of his modified soldiers, Me and Mimi; eventually, they manage to find Night Raid's hideout.
Dr. Stylish then gathered the entirety of his personal army, Team Stylish, and directed them to attack, with the intention of capturing the assassins to use as him test subjects. Stylish professed supreme confidence in his strengthened soldiers, especially Kaku, equipped with the Teigu Extase, and Toby, whose whole body had been turned into a machine. However, as the battle continued, both Toby and Kaku were killed, prompting Stylish to retreat to the nearby mountain. He was interrupted by the arrival of Najenda riding an Air Manta.
As the assassins gathered outside of the hideout, Dr. Stylish used a paralysing potion that incapacitated them, while leaving his army, who had the immunity, still operational. However, they were quickly obliterated by the newly-arrived Susanoo. Realizing that poison will not work on an organism-type Teigu, Dr. Stylish attempted to escape but was intercepted. Left with no choice, Stylish resorted to his second trump card: injecting himself with a serum that changed him into a huge Danger Beast, while also absorbing the last of own troops to further increase his power. While he was able to match Susanoo, Tatsumi and Akame managed to approach his real body, which allowed Akame to slash Stylish across the chest. As Murasame’s poison took hold he lamented that he still had many human experiments that he wanted to do.
After Dr. Stylish assault on their hideout, Night Raid was forced to abandon it for the new one and spent about a month’s time away from the Capital before returning to resume their missions.
Sometime after Stylish's death, Syura unleashed the humanoid Danger Beasts on the outskirt villages of the Empire. Several of these were later recaptured by the Jaegers for Prime Minister Honest while the rest were destroyed. These sample creatures would prove very useful to the Minister, however, when Syura later brought the alchemist Dorothea to the empire as part of Wild Hunt. Dorothea’s original purpose in coming to the Empire was so she could meet Dr. Stylish and see if his science and her alchemy could be combined. She was frustrated when she learned of his death but, after gaining the patronage of the Minister who had a workshop built for her and gave her one of the remaining Danger Beasts, she has stated that she would be able to research and use Stylish’s techniques for herself regardless.
Equipment and Skills
As a scientist Dr. Stylish had great intelligence and powerful observational skills. He was the only member of the Jaegers to discern that Tatsumi’s skill in combat was too high for him to be a simple blacksmith. Stylish also possessed great skill in the creation of poisons, with one of his most powerful being an invisible, odorless gas that could paralyze even trained assassins. He was a capable strategist as well, equipping several of his enhanced soldiers to combat specific enemies as well as preparing various hidden moves ahead of time.
Stylish was in possession of the Teigu "Perfector", a set of gloves that increased the speed and dexterity of his fingers dramatically. This Teigu, along with Stylish’s medical knowledge, enabled him to heal any injury, short of death itself. The Teigu was also the tool with which Stylish performed the enhancement surgeries on his minions and created the weapons known as the ‘Judgment of the Ten Heavenly Kings’ used by Seryu Ubiquitous. After Stylish’s death the Teigu was taken by Night Raid who then sent it on to the Revolutionary Army’s headquarters.
