Name: Fujimiya, Tamiko 藤宮,多美子(with the kanji for Beautiful Child and Wisteria Shrine)
Age: 21 years old
Blood Type: B+ Crime Coefficient: 31
her father was a psychiatrist who studied the traits and behavior of Latent criminals. He hoped to formulate a procedure that would allow people with high crime coefficients to live safely in society. His research was cut short however, when his wife committed suicide, and his daughter, Tamiko began to have a steady rise in her psycho pass. Worried for the safety of his daughter, he attempted to save her in the only way he saw possible. To protect his child from the horror of insanity, he chemically altered her brain using medications to trigger depersonification disorder. This enabled her to live detached from her emotions, and therefore suppressed her clouding hue.
Though her father’s treatment upon her was highly effective, it was deemed unethical and he lost his position, opting to be a professor of abnormal psychology instead.
With the weight of her father’s unfinished research on her shoulders, Tamiko opted for a job in the PSB, where she could study the enforcers covertly.
|Polite | Cynical | Logic reliant | Headstrong | Distant | Socially correct to a point where its painfully awkward |
Tamiko’s detachment from her emotions makes it difficult for her to express her feelings correctly. She is relatively kind, but is clumsy and awkward with expressing the way she feels. she often seems polite, but in a professional manor. She likes to feed off other people’s emotions to substitute her own missing ones. She looks at people as interesting new specimen and enjoys discussing and manipulating people’s mental states, something made easy by her knowledge of human interaction. She also is quite defensive and headstrong, she believes that her choices and body are her own to dictate. Her disorder, however good at maintaining her psycho pass it is, has its downsides. When she does have genuine feelings, she becomes very unstable, unsure of how to deal with the sudden weight of her emotions. She becomes erratic, prone to fits of crying and intense happiness, as if her body is trying to make up for missed time ( this is called bipolar depression kiddies!). She takes medicine to prevent these episodes, but they sometimes occur never the less. During these episodes, her crime coefficient fluctuates greatly, though it hasn’t made her a danger to society yet.

Information on her father’s research and what Tamiko takes:
The process of preventing insanity through meds is a very likely one, In essence, the aforementioned procedure would be very difficult, and probably have to be individualized for each specific case. Since (some/ most types) of what people consider insanity is caused by an imbalance of chemicals in the brain, the right set of drugs would be able to prevent/reign in any abnormal brain functions. Currently, there are a wide range of medicines that claim to treat mental illness and conditions such as schizophrenia and depression, however, more likely than not these medicines can cause harmful, and potentially even more dangerous side effects. So, either way, the singular drug idea is kind of a bust when it comes to this. Tamiko’s father was researching a way to use these side effects to an advantage, and have them aid in transitioning someone back into society, for as it is, a trip to rehabilitation is usually a one way ride. MOAIs and SSRIs were his main study subjects, as the almost temporarialy “lobotomize” the user, allowing them to detach from their emotions and think completely logically, functioning like a “safe mode” on a computer. Much like scientists in the real world are developing procedures that consist of personalized recovery combos for cancer patients, tamiko’s father hoped to help those who had fallen into the “latent criminal” range recover.
Tamiko is permitted to take these drugs under the premise of genetic Bipolar depression, though it double functions as an inhibitor for her psycho pass. If she were to stop taking the drugs, she would be submitted to mood swings, anxiety, and just an all-around higher psycho pass.
Information on why she’s capable of maintaining a low psycho pass:
First, allow me to paraphrase the Psycho pass wiki. By the guidelines of the wikia, a person’s Psycho-Pass is determined by two things, the first being their crime coefficient (or likelihood of betraying the Sybil system). Tamiko has never expressed an interest in breaking the law. Her personality type, and her love of observing people (though odd) could be considered just heightened curiosity, which would not be a threat to the Sybil system (unless she accidentally psychoanalyzed the wrong person). The second contributor to a person’s Psycho pass is their Hue, or stress level. There are three different kinds of stress currently recognized by today’s psychologists, emotional, psychological, and physical. Due to her boatload of disorders, Tamiko has a detachment from her emotions, meaning that they would not affect her/would be easier to control. Next, psychological stress is caused by one’s own five senses and a person’s ability (or inability) to cope with them. If Tamiko were not to take the drugs, she would be extremely susceptible to fits of anxiety, a symptom of manic depression, but because of her meds, she does not have that issue. She probably reacts to physical stress like anyone else. These three things are why her psycho pass is “high” for an inspector, but not in latent criminal zone.
