Appearance and Personality
Nothing is known about Sawa's appearance, as she is only briefly mentioned through text. It seems that much like her colleagues, she had a violent personality, leading to her fatal conflict with Kenta Arai.
Sawa Kobayakawa was a founding member of the Heinous Crimes Unit, and its first female investigator. She was present for the formation of the group in November of 1990, alongside Shinji Kotobuki, Tetsugoro Kusabi, Kiyoshi Morikawa, and Shigeo Ishikawa. During the "Royal Nine" Tsubaki Syndicate Conflict in November of 1992, she was killed by the syndicate member Kenta Arai, leading to all-out war between the syndicate and the Heinous Crimes Unit.
