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

Giran (義爛 (ギラン) ?) is a villain and broker in affiliation with the League of Villains, working to scout new recruits for their organization.

Appearance

Giran has a gray hair with side-bangs, a tiny mustache and tiny goatee, and a missing front tooth, creating a gap. 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

Vs. Hero Killer 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]

Final Exams 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]

Quirk and Abilities

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]

Keen Intellect: Giran also demonstrates he has ample scientific knowledge, commenting on how the combination of chemicals Knuckleduster was ordering can result in toxic fumes; as well as knowing that a taser cannot have a built in AED, as a electric pulses they deliver are different. Along with knowledge of what drugs are able to be consumed in large doses - and ones that aren't - he appears to know a great deal about everything he supplies and how they work.[5]

Equipment

Handgun: Giran possesses a gun which is able to emit fire,[1] although the possibility of it being a novelty gun-shaped lighter cannot be discounted.
