|“||The one whose fangs are the sharpest wins. That's what Killing Bites is.||„|
|~ Hitomi's Catchphrase|
Uzaki Hitomi (b. 26th June, 1995) is one of the protagonists of the Killing Bites manga and anime, being the main protagonist of the first half of the manga, in which the anime takes place.
After a rather fateful meeting with Nomoto Yuuya, she becomes a temporary ally with Ishida Zaibatsu. She's an integral part of Shidou Reiichi's mysterious agenda.
She was voiced by Sora Amamiya.
She has white hair, brown eyes and a curvy body. When transformed, she is shown to have features similar to that of a honey badger.
When transformed, black fur with a white tint covering various sections of her body, such as the sides of her body, under her armpits, and her shoulders down the top of her biceps, though her forearms and hands are fully covered in fur, as are her legs up to her upper-mid-thigh.
A short tail also sprouts from Hitomi's tailbone, with a pair of small ears adorning the top of her head, whilst her fingernails and toenails are replaced with short, yet sharp claws, as well as fangs, showed to reach her teeth.
A born therianthrope, she says that she has never experienced fear. Overall, Hitomi is a hot-blooded, fearsome fighter with an often-aggressive disposition.
She will pick a fight against anyone, brute or not, with very little provocation. Regularly, she acts like a tomboy but is conscious about acting more feminine. Hitomi isn't exactly knowledgeable about most perverts unless they make a move.
For example, when Nomoto accidentally grabs her breast, she blushes and calls him a lech. However, when she was misguided by Eruza into dressing as a maid while keeping some of her Brute traits visible, such as her ears and tail, she was oblivious to the fact that the other boys were completely ogling her until much later on.
She respects Shidou Reiichi and seems like an entirely different person when around him, acting sweeter and cuter than usual. She has been a fan of sweets since she was little.
|Slash||Hitomi's signature move. A simple killing move where she slashes the target with her claws.|
|Fast Learning||She was able to counter Brute Bear's attack after seeing it once before, as well as timing Taiga's Tiger Cannon after letting herself get hit by it twice.|
|Brute Transformation||Having the characteristics of the ratel since birth, Hitomi has speed, strength, flexibility and stamina far surpassing those of a human, as well as heightened senses such as smell. Like the Ratel, Hitomi is incredibly resilient, having survived to attacks from extremely powerful enemies such as Taiga, considered the second strongest brute within the official rankings, and Kido, a savage brute who's strength and defense overwhelmed the former with incredible ease. A particular trait to Hitomi's ratel transformation is that the more she's harmed, the more aggressive and battle aware she becomes Origin Beast.|
|Origin Beast||Described by Shidou as the perfect combination of human and animal since birth, this is Hitomi's "true form". Her animal traits become much more prominent, her fur covering her legs and hips completely and her hair growing longer and wilder. Her instincts become even more enhanced than before and Hitomi dons on a much more animalistic and wilder behavior, toying with her opponent while delivering deadly attacks, while keeping most of her sanity. In this form, Hitomi's physical conditioning increases becoming an incredible fighter who's speed is so far only surpassed by Eruza and, probably, Inaba. In this form she was able to deliver a fatal blow to Kido which, even though it didn't kill him, it knocked him out for a brief moment, even exposing his brain mass in the process.|
|Fighting Style||Hitomi, like several other brutes, has no defined fighting style. Instead she relies completely on her instincts. Due to the nature of her own transformation and her own straightforward personality, she has only one move in her entire arsenal, unlike many other brutes whom have developed more complex and diverse techniques. Despite this, Hitomi can be quite clever and tactical in combat, for she's able to exploit the weaknesses of her opponents whenever she discovers them such as Kido's severed right eye which left him a blind spot, or when she had Inaba use her echolocation to discover the strategy of the Reptile twins.|
