Inokuchi is a Grand Admiral of the Imperial Japanese Navy who oversaw the Japanese Empire's nuclear program.

In 1964, he was tasked by the Crown Princess to clandestinely negotiate a peace settlement with the Black Communist Rebellion; however he was caught by the Kempeitai. He is acquitted of all charges and is appointed as the Governor-General of the Pacific States.

Biography

Season Three

He is present when the Japanese successfully detonate their copy of the Heisenberg Device in a desert in the Japanese Pacific States. He proudly proclaims the achievement, saying that a new balance of power has been established between Japan and the Greater Nazi Reich.

Season Four

Inokuchi became the de facto head of state of the Pacific States following Yamori's suicide. He was put in charge of the Japanese withdrawal from America.

On 9th November 1964, Inokuchi signed a treaty with Reichsmarschall John Smith of Nazi America to finalize the terms of the evacuation agreement.

Appearance & Personality

Grand Admiral Inokuchi appears to be much more moderate than most of the Japanese Pacific States military. When he learns that the Kempetai is still executing civilians in retaliation for the bombing of their HQ, he orders Kido to stop the slaughter, stating that the Japanese Empire must show its superiority to the natives not trough force, but trough persuation.

However, this moderation is born from pragmatism: he's fully aware that, with the war against the chinese communist rebellion draining more and more of its military forces, the Japanese Empire doesn't have the means to control it's territories by force and the imperial governement will have to make drastic choices in order to keep viable supply lines; therefore, it's more beneficial for the Empire to have a "lighter toouch" in its control over the Japanes Pacific States unless facing an other rebellion and having to fight a loosing war on two fronts.

Notes & Trivia

  • The surname "Inokuchi" means "sake cup, small cup" (猪口).
  • He is probably named after Vice-Admiral Toshihira Inoguchi (incorrectly romanised as Inokuchi in some sources), the last captain of the real-life battleship Musashi, the second ship of the Yamato-class battleships. In our world, Vice-Admiral Inoguchi went down with the Musashi in the Battle of Leyte Gulf.
