Kei is a Trouble Consultant with the WWWA, an intergalactic "peace organization", with military interventionist tendancies.
She and her partner, Yuri, are genetically enhanced, making them excellent fighters. Together, they are charged with taking care of problems for the WWWA, often involving bountyhunter-type activites, assasination, and occasion diplomatic missions.
Wherever the two travel, massive destruction occurs, this has given the two the nickname "Dirty Pair". Whole planets sometimes begin evacuation when word of their arrival spreads. For that reason, they travel discreetly whenever possible.
Kei is the more assertive of the two. She flirts with men constantly, often leading to trouble, and is a vicious spoilsport with a short fuse. Her weapon of choice is usually a very large gun, and she gets very excited when given an opportunity to fire a huge weapon. She has a tendancy towards violence and overreacting, which is tamed by Yuri's mild demeanor and contemplativeness.
It can be said that while Kei is a total horndog for men, she truly, deeply cares about only one thing- and that's Yuri.
Kei has bright red hair (which becomes two-tone yellow and deep orange in the sequel series "Dirty Pair Flash"). She is rather lean, and athletically built. She features extra-long legs from the "sexy hottie" school of anime drawing.
Kei and Yuri both wear tiny bikinis as uniforms. The two don't care much what others think, and prefer to present themselves in a compellingly attractive way whenever possible. Despite their stereotyping way of dress, both are assertive and resourceful ladies with a solid sense of purpose and empowerment, especially Kei, who can be described as spiteful and vengeful when annoyed.
