I want to see the splendor of people’s souls. I want to check and see if it really is precious. However, when humans base their lives around Sybil’s Oracle, without ever consulting their own wills, do they really hold any value?
~ Shogo Makishima.

Shogo Makishima is the main antagonist of the first season of the anime, Psycho Pass. A mysterious criminal that is hellbent on attempting to destroy the Sibyl System, he serves as the foil of Shinya Kogami and also a Wicked Cultured Philosopher who claims on liberating human race from the oppressive Sibyl System that erases them from expressing their own individuality. However, it was soon revealed that his goal is not as well-intentioned as it seems.

He's played by Takahiro Sakurai in Japanese, who also plays Femto in Berserk (2016), and Alex Organ in English.
