Student (6th Grader)
|Affiliation||Tenbin Elementary School
Abaku Inugami is the main protagonist of Gakkyu Hotei, and a 6th grade attorney known for his impressive success rate and impeccable skill in articulation. He hates children. Due to his family name, which means "dog god", Pine-chan has given him the nickname "Puppygami".
In return, he named her "Pineapple".
Inugami is a young boy with an average build with yellow, cat-like eyes and light blonde hair. His bangs cover most of his forehead with a few strands sticking out from his head towards the left side. The color of his hair becomes a few shades darker as it comes down his neck.
In the courtroom, Inugami wears a collared red shirt, and a red tie under a white blazer with red lapels and cuff accents and matching white trousers with black suspenders. Inugami's casual attire varies, but they tend to be simple and relatively cheap looking. He often wears a pair of tinted, circular glasses which sometimes makes his eyes appear a few shades darker.
Inugami, as per his occupation, is naturally confrontational. During his initial introduction, he claimed his hobby to be "ronpa", meaning "confutation" and referring to the art of debate. He happily debates with anyone who makes the mistake of provoking him, leading the staff and students to initially dislike him as his skill in the art far surpasses even that of the adult faculty. However, due to his dedication to his career and the uncovering of the truth, and his success in court, he has made numerous friends. The most significant of them being Tento Nanohoshi, whom he defended in his first case at Tenbin. Inugami is also generally confident, at least outwardly, not often showing concern that he will lose a case. Inugami is quite intelligent for a sixth grader, and can easily confuse and best even adults at times. He is highly articulate, and this and his impressive deductive abilities are what has earned him his title as one of the Three Tongues, which consists of the three most successful lawyers of the School Judgement system.
