Captain Tanaka is the commander of the Bay City Police Department, overseeing officers like Kristin Ortega and Samir Abboud. He tries to keep the peace between the Meths like Laurens Bancroft and the regular people of the city.
Throughout the series Edit
Despite being on the take, Tanaka is a good man at heart and is determined to maintain peace between meths and grounders. He genuinely cares for the safety of the officers under his command, particularly Kristin Ortega. Disgusted with the murder of her whole family at the hands of Mister Leung, Tanaka finally worked up the courage to rescue Kristin and (quite literally) bring down Reileen Kawahara.
