Kato was a soldier that took part in the extermination of the Parasites.
In the anime Kato is seen wearing tactical armor with a helmet that sends a constant video feed to the buses outside. He has brown hair and eyes, with light mustache stubble. In the manga, Kato is seen wearing less protective armor and has a large defined nose.
Kato was seen following the orders he was given. He became annoyed at Mayor Takeshi Hirokawa for causing them more problems. However, he prioritized maintaining order in the lobby over keeping Hirokawa's group in a single area.
Kato is first seen along with his squadron entering the City Hall to maintain order. After the remaining soldiers get into position, he asks the civilians to remain calm and that there is an evacuation plan. Meanwhile, his helmet is sending a live stream of the building to the buses outside.
After Mayor Hirokawa and his associates enter the lobby, Kato is annoyed by Hirokawa taking control of the situation and changing the order of evacuation. He soon approaches Kato, requesting his group be allowed to go back in the building for a meeting, then feigning anger that the military would treat the citizens of the city in such a way. After the parasites begin fighting back and killing numerous people, Hirokawa and his group of disguised parasites walk past Kato, who ends up letting them leave without further opposition.
It's unknown how Kato was killed, be it by an unnamed parasite or Gotou himself, but due to every soldier in the building being killed, it's known he is deceased.
