|Position||Head of Taoka Industries|
|First Appearance||Shimura (Comic)|
Masamune Taoka was the head of Taoka Industries and was one of the most popular and influential figures in Hondo-City, having contributed to a major number of technical achievements to the city pushing it ahead further than any of the other Mega-Cities. Unfortunately he went insane.
Masamune was an idealist who belived that cybernetic enhancements were the gateway into the future and was happy to kill anybody who got in his way to get there. He had little time for human contact, and apparently ignored his daughter Amber and her mother after she was born and pushed them away constantly.
