An officer of the National Police Agency. A rather eccentric individual that actually wanted to become a lawyer but, after learning about Watase Nagisa’s mysterious death during his study abroad in America, decided to become a police officer instead.
Officer Shiraishi has a calming and gentle personality. From time to time, however, he shows a side to him no one really seems to grasp. Benevolent, gentle, incredibly skilled and a little mysterious, amongst his colleagues Shiraishi’s known as “the Arch Angel”.
Shiraishi is married and has 2 daughters.
Masanori Shiraishi was born in Kobe and raised in an ordinary household. As the Shiraishi house had a prestigious name to itself in their hometown, it would often happen that prominent figures would come over to visit, amongst whom Watase Nagisa.
Watase Nagisa’s natural kindness and charm together with her cold, absolute presence on stage bewitched the young Shiraishi, and in his young heart became an existence he deeply admired.
Even though she was such an admirable existence she was suddenly arrested and not long after, came the announcement of her death…
In order to investigate this case, Shiraishi had worked his way up to become a police-superintendent at a remarkably young age. Amongst the possessions Nagisa had left behind, one journal had mysteriously vanished. Seeing this as a possible clue, Shiraishi searched for its whereabouts, but was caught and severely admonished by his superior who had noticed the odd patterns in his behaviour.
During this time of despair, wherein Shiraishi found his every path to an answer blocked, CYGNUS.CC’s fleet docked in Japan.
Walking the streets he found a poster depicting a girl who uncannily reminding him of Nagisa, her name was Rainie Lan. Shiraishi developed an interest in this person in whom he could trace Nagisa’s shadow.
As it so happened, Shiraishi was to board CYGNUS.CC’s passenger boat due to work-related matters.
On board, he met the illusionist, Navi (Higashino Kouichirou), working as a dealer on the ship’s Casino Floor. Unaware of Navi and Rainie’s relationship, Shiraishi started to interact with Navi.
During their exchange, the subject of Nagisa’s death unexpectedly came up. This is where Shiraishi realised that Navi was also investigating the truth behind her death…
With all players present and the cards shuffled the start of a game of tactics and intellectual bargaining could begin. As if losing themselves to the madness oozing from the tables on the Casino Floor, the two of them skillfully manipulated the cards in their hands.
The rules of the game were simple:
Scramble and struggle to “Obtain the journal ‘she’ had left behind”.
A sorrowful antinomy of two men betting on the same feeling… and in the end, the winner is…
