A successful play writer for a drama troupe in Tokyo, often being asked to translate foreign works. He experiences difficulty after being asked to write a Greek tale that is too similar to a past experience that happened in his college years 15 years ago. His story in Aoi Bungako's "Run, Melos!" reflects this difficulty as he tries to write through the eyes of a person on the opposite role of a situation, but unable to accept it through his memories of those left behind waiting for their friend.
