Hirotaka Chiba is one of the security guards working in the Old Harbour District, although due to his slightly unsociable nature he doesn't really get along well with the other guards on duty. On his days off he likes to immerse himself in reading, and whilst working he is methodical and checks all the incoming cargo for scratches. He is a second Dan blackbelt in karate.
