Saito (Ghost In The Shell)
Saito (サイトー, Saitō?) is a fictional character from the anime series, Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C.. Among the members of Section 9, he is regarded as one of the least cyberized. He can handle any automatic firearm with deadly accuracy and precision, but his primary role is as the unit's tactical sniper. His left eye was replaced with the "Hawkeye", a prosthetic eye that interfaces with satellites to allow for shots of incredible accuracy. He is also valued for his ability to think like enemy snipers; on two separate occasions his ability at determining sniping locations impacted Section 9's actions.
He also appears in the manga, but has no major role with his Hawkeye on his right eye instead of his left in the English version of the manga due to it being reversed. Saito has a video game appearance in the Stand Alone Complex PSP game as a main character alongside Motoko, Batou and Togusa, using his position as Section 9 sniper.
He is voiced by Tōru Ōkawa in the Japanese version and by Dave Wittenberg in the English version.
