|SideM character data|
Suzaku Akai (紅井 朱雀 Akai Suzaku) is one of the available idols in the mobile game THE iDOLM@STER: SideM. He is part of the unit Shinsoku Ikkon along with Genbu Kurono. He is voiced by Takeaki Masuyama (益山武明 Masuyama Takeaki).
"Be a man among men!"
Suzaku is hot-blooded and passionate about ridding the world of 'true evil'. He became an idol to spread word of justice through singing, as he figured out that simply beating wrongdoers up did nothing to help. He tries to protect innocent people from getting hurt. For example, he met Genbu Kurono this way, when the former was being bullied and Suzaku stepped in to fight the bullies despite not being strong enough to overcome them. He is self disciplined, doing 100 push-ups and 100 sit-ups each day before eating breakfast. His father is a professional wrestler, which inspired Suzaku to want to become a true hero who could help others in real life, and not just defeat the villains acting a role on TV.
Suzaku has a pet cat named Nyako, whom he adores and is almost never seen without. Nyako often has matching bandannas which accompany Suzaku's outfits. Suzaku is not very knowledgeable, but prides himself on his endurance and teamwork, especially with Genbu and Nyako. He likes to wear custom uniforms with complex embroidery, as shown when he suggested that Shinsoku Ikkon wear uniforms in their paintball match with FRAME. He is quite flustered around girls, finding it hard to talk to them without the help of Nyako, and is insecure over not having as many young fans as Genbu (though he has many older fans). He also enjoys eating food, and has been to butler and pancake cafes with Genbu.
