This article contains spoilers about Nana's past. Read with caution.
Tatsumi Tsuruoka (鶴岡 タツミ, Tsuruoka Tatsumi) is one of the characters of Talentless Nana. While he is initially father-like to Nana, he is later revealed as the main antagonist as he is Nana's true archenemy for killing her parents.
Tsuruoka has light hair that fades to dark, and dark eyes. Most notably, he is almost always frowning and has a stern look on his face. He has a scar on his left eye.
From the bottom of his heart, Tsuruoka is evil, and proudly describes himself as such. He is incredibly cunning, manipulative, and uses people like game pieces without remorse. Ultimately, he is a corrupt member of the government, working for his own benefit, and truly doesn't care for others. He's also a pathological liar and manipulator when he lied to Nana for her parent's death and framed the Talented for the murder.
After Nana's parents were killed, Tsuruoka subsequently took her in and began training her. He later reveals that he is the one who killed Nana's parents. This was to advance his plan of using young, parentless children to kill the Talented.
Not much is known about Tsuruoka's past. However, it has been shown that he has known Sachiyo Makabe for twenty years ever since he was a Cadet in the army. Sachiyo also was the one who allowed him to see that there are good people in the world.
