Akame (アカメ Akame?)
is one of the members of the assassin group known as Night Raid. She is the first member to attack Tatsumi, and comes very close to killing
him.[ch. 1] She initially appears very serious and cold-hearted, but she is actually caring and worries about the safety of her comrades, and she has a voracious appetite for meat.[ch. 3] She has a younger sister named Kurome, who is a member of the Jaegers, and loyal to the Empire. Both sisters were used by the Empire as assassins but Akame's defection started a rivalry between the two.[ch. 33] Her Teigu, "One Cut Killer: Murasame" (一斬必殺 村雨 Ichizan Hissatsu: Murasame?), is a poisonous katana that can instantly kill the enemy;[ch. 5] it originally belongs to the adoptive "father", Gozuki, who raised her and Kurome into assassins for the Empire. She is voiced by Sora Amamiya.
