Chikage Utsuki (卯木千景 Utsuki Chikage) is a member of Spring Troupe. He is a man who has a friendly personality, and lies with a smile while tossing others around. He is Itaru's senior at an elite trading company and often traveled abroad on business trips. Because of this, he is fluent in multiple languages. Even after joining the troupe, he remains an enigmatic person with many mysteries.
He shares room 103 with Itaru after he moves in, in Episode 5.
Chikage is a man with grey-blue eyes and dark olive green hair in his twenties. When dressed casually, he wears round glasses, a white turtleneck sweater, a light blue bomber jacket, black track pants with a white stripe, and teal sneakers. On his right hand, he wears a bracelet, and on the middle finger of his left hand, he has a silver ring.
Chikage is a mysterious man with many secrets, who gives off a strange air. Though he is quite sociable, you can never tell when he is lying or telling the truth. He is a shrewd and cunning man, always calm and composed. It is also noteworthy that Chikage is a fairly polite person. He insists that he is an ordinary salaryman, but clearly he's more than that. He has stated that sometimes he lies because he is afraid of looking weak.
Before he joined Mankai Company, Chikage worked as an agent in the same organization as Hisoka. After a failed mission, with resulted in their partner, August, dying, Hisoka disappeared. Chikage was told that Hisoka betrayed the organization causing August's death. As they were each given a suicide serum in the event of a failure and Hisoka remained alive, Chikage believed what he had been told and, enraged, swore revenge.
He later joined Mankai to get revenge on Hisoka, with his final plan to kidnap the director and cause Mankai's collapse. However, Hisoka came to rescue her, memories now restored. After hearing the truth of how August swapped out the serum for an amensia serum, Chikage forgave Hisoka and apologized for all the trouble he had caused. He was welcomed back by Mankai and finally accepted them as his new family and home.
Chikage has a good relationship with the rest of the troupe, although they are rather curious about what he's hiding.
- Sakuya: Sakuya admires Chikage for being a responsible and successful adult. Chikage has taken quite a liking to Sakuya and acknowledges him as a leader. He even enjoys playing games with Sakuya, like their daily coin toss.
- Masumi: Masumi finds Chikage to be troublesome, as he does with all the other members. Chikage seems to like Masumi even though Masumi doesn't really like him.
- Tsuzuru: Tsuzuru finds Chikage to be quite an interesting person, though he can never tell when he's lying or not. Chikage thinks Tsuzuru is hardworking and very talented at such a young age.
- Itaru: The two have a respectful relationship since they are colleagues at work, even being rather formal at home. Itaru thinks that Chikage is completely different at home than at work, though he felt he wasn't one to talk. Chikage thinks the same of him, not expecting the charming young man at work to be a closet game addict. They tend to have a lot of banter but understand each other and get along better than expected.
- Citron: Chikage is amused by Citron's Japanese. Citron also finds Chikage to be very intriguing and similar to Itaru, in terms of having two different personas at work and home.
These are the roles Chikage has played:
Surname: 卯 = zodiac sign of rabbit 木 = tree;wood
Given name: 千 = thousand 景 = scenery
- He (secretly) likes animals, especially cats. However, he is not very good with them, as he feels awkward and doesn't know how to act around them.
- He has a blog called Chikausa where he reviews spices/curries.
- His blue jacket reads "Dece", which refers to the code name "December" used by Hisoka for the organisation they worked for, as seen in Episode 5 - Awakening Moon.
