"This clip keeps getting put up and taken down, because both sides get it. Especially this last part...this guy's whole style's gonna spread like a plague.

Giran to a business associate in "The Aftermath of Hero-Killer Stain"



Giran (義爛 (ギラン) ?) is a villain and broker who is affiliated with the League of Villains in that he scouts new recruits for their organization.

Appearance

Giran has a grey hair with side-bangs, a tiny mustache and tiny goatee, and a gap between his front teeth. He wears grey, round glasses. His eyebrows are always drawn up in the middle and he appears to be squinting. He wears a purple blazer with a white button-up shirt and occasionally accessorizes with a fluffy scarf that resembles intestines in shape and color. He is smoking a cigarette whenever he appears.

Personality

He seems to be indifferent and unsympathetic towards others, focused only on getting money from his clients. His constant smirk makes him look smugly self-confident. His cell phone case, which has bunny ears, suggests eccentric taste.

Synopsis

Field Training Arc

Giran is seen talking to a fellow broker about the current state of society and the black market. The Broker comments on a popular video about Stain, describes the Hero Killer's past, and predicts that Stain influence will inspire new villains to join the League of Villains.[1]

End of Term Test Arc

After scouting Himiko Toga and Dabi, he brings them to the League of Villains to be introduced to Tomura Shigaraki.[2]

Tomura immediately tries to reject the duo, but Kurogiri convinces him to at least hear them out. Giran seems amused but reminds Kurogiri that he's just in it for the money. He then introduces the recruits one at a time. After Himiko introduces herself, Dabi refuses to reveal his real name. This irritates Tomura so much that he loses his cool and starts a fight, and Kurogiri has to step in to stop the three of them from killing each other. Kurogiri calmly admonishes Tomura, reminding him that this opportunity to expand their organization is advantageous since they are in the spotlight. Tomura tells him to shut up and starts to storm off. Giran tries to ask where he's going, but Tomura tells him to shut up too and then slams the door. Giran remarks to Kurogiri that Tomura is too young and immature. Kurogiri asks that they wait a few days for Tomura's response and assures them that they would come to an understanding.[3]

Business Skills: Giran, according to Kurogiri, is a well-known name in the underworld. He is knowledgeable about current trends and is also great at scouting potential villains. He also successfully deals with illegal costumes, especially with the growing underground popularity of the League of Villains.[4]
