Special Crime Investigation Unit

Danganronpa Killer Killer Ikue Dogami Chapter 1
Previously an armed officer, Ikue later became the Chief of Special Crime Investigation Unit. In this capacity, she oversaw abnormal and grotesque cases, and assigned them to the special agents beneath her. She earned the nickname "The Hairpin Demon" based on her stern demeanour and the two long hairpins she wore in her hair.
Ikue helped to introduce Misaki Asano, a new recruit to the division, with her role as an investigator within the department, though Ikue was sceptical that Misaki had what it took to deal with the extreme cases of the SCIU. Ikue partnered Misaki with Takumi Hijirihara, and assigned them their first case acting as security for Momomichi Ito.

After Misaki came to Ikue, struggling to deal with Takumi's quirks, Ikue explained to Misaki that Takumi was a survivor of the Giboura Massacre, which led to his strange behavior and strong feelings about murder. Takumi later murdered Momomichi Ito, and left a letter behind for Ikue and the SCIU from his alter ego, Killer Killer.
