Kei (ケイ?) is one of the protagonists of the Dirty Pair television series. A hot-headed tomboy, she is part of the Lovely Angels with her team mate Yuri. She has red hair, tanned skin and often wears a silver-white uniform (sometimes light purple). She favors large weaponry and has a "shoot first, ask questions later" attitude.


Kei is the more outgoing of the Lovely Angels. Her fierce red hair matches her temper and woe betide the person whom faces her wrath. She is highly motivated and will often move forward, sometimes regardless of the consequences. Kei is an expert shot and is highly skilled in unarmed combat. Kei apparently dates a number of men. However, despite her evident charms, she has not managed to gain a steady relationship.


Pre-3WA CareerEdit

Kei was friends with a boy named Kaia but as they grew up, they went their separate ways.  (TV: "Lots of Danger, Lots of Decoys")

Early MissionsEdit

Kei along with Yuri were once involved in an incident that accidentally destroyed the planet Lameere that left 3521 people wounded. On another mission which took place on Casa Noir, she apparently had a bath at one point and two old men named Jekyll and Hyde got excited over seeing her naked body.

During the aftermath of Brian's destruction, both of the Lovely Angels were sent by Gooley to find the cause of the accidents of the Cosmo Plane Service's spacecraft happening recently. To Kei's annoyance, they were forced to work under the 3WA operative Nova Grave as there senior who she assumed had chest hair because she was disliking him. There assignment was to go aboard the luxury spacecraft known as the Tenan I to try and find the culprit who can be responsible for the ship bombings. Kei and Yuri were going to be assigned to be in the lobby and pose as simple passengers as well as look into the places that only women can go in as well assuming the possibility of the terrorist being female.

Kei Tenan I Gun Fight

Kei chose to not listen to his plan and go out and put on a spacesuit to investigate the ship's hull. Grave caught her but before requesting her to stop he decided it was a good idea for her to check outside after he received a message saying that two passengers were found unconscious at the airport meaning two of the terrorists were posing as passengers. Out on the ship's hull, Kei found that there were three of them outside planting bombs on the ship. While Kei started a gun fight with them, she had Nanmo go around and disable the bombs that were being placed. Kei requested for backup having Grave send Yuri but she couldn't make it due to being caught in a fight with two other terrorists inside. Being to late and one of the small bombs going off, Kei and Nanmo survived the explosion and went back inside the ship where she meet backup with Yuri and found that Grave was injured from a gun shot.

Kei Activating Boosters

Both Kei and Yuri went out into the ship to get the passengers to escape but a metal door was in the way which Kei shot open. Kei brought an old women on her back to help her escape but a young man offered to help her and then gave her to him so she can get going. While Grave requested that the pair leave as well, they both rejected and decided to prevent the crash. With the auto control disabled, Kei decided that they will have to do it manually even though this was her first to driving a huge ship and told Yuri to contact the Dolmedo City airport. While Kei was doing a good job guiding the ships course left to the airport, Yuri found that the reverse thrusters were out and Kei then chose to switch with her which she came to the conclusion that she will have to go and ignite the ships boosters herself. Kei took Nanmo with and used a bomb to make a hole in the ship then put two electrical cords together and got the boosters working which got Yuri to make the ship land on the airport successfully.

After the incident both of the Angels visited Grave while he was in the hospital and both of them gave him a kiss on the check to make him feel better. Just before they left the hospital, Grave requested that he would like to work with them again and unbuttoned his shirt showing he has no chest hair which Kei approved of.

Affair of NolandiaEdit

Karosu PrisonEdit

At the 3WA, Kei complained to Gooley Andrew Francess about the fact that she absolutely had to make her reports in writing. Gooley said it's her own fault for letting it pile up.

Sometime later, with its impulse engines on, The Love Angel headed of to Karosu prison. Aboard the ship, Kei briefed Yuri, who was stroking Mughi's back, about the mission.
