Douji Group Industries
Douji Group Industries is a huge corporation that is headed by a board of directors and Bureau Chief Reiji Takayama. Douji's primary focus is researching and developing special weapons, such as Witchblade and the I-Weapons. They are also responsible for the presence of X-Cons that rampage through Tokyo at night. Before the Great Quake, they possessed the Witchblade. In the past, Douji Group Industries collaborated with the NSWF on researching the Witchblade. The product of these research was the Cloneblade, a copy of the original Witchblade.
While Douji Group Industries and the NSWF were working together on the Witchblade, one of the NSWF's top scientists, Reina Soho, was sent to aid them in their research. However, Reina stole the Witchblade from Douji Group Industries in an attempt to gain its' power. Once Reina's betrayal was discovered, both Douji Group Industries and the NSWF sent agents in to retrieve the Witchblade.
The Witchblade awoke during this time and the resulting power surge resulted in the Great Quake, a massive earthquake that devastated Tokyo and killed millions of people. After the Great Quake, Douji focused its' attention on retrieving X-Cons, which were malfunctioning machines that escaped during the Great Quake.
Takayama is the head of the Special Section in Douji Group Industries, which manufactures weapons and researches weapons like the Witchblade. He hired Masane Amaha to dispose of X-Cons. He first appears to be a cold and ruthless man who only cares about his job, but this is not actually the case.
