A full cyborg, Major Motoko Kusanagi had served the Japanese army during a non-nuclear world war, then afterwards the army's 501 Organization, who also owns her prosthetic body. When her involvement with the organization ended – and ownership of her body became her own, she is recruited by Daisuke Aramaki, who was starting-up his own organization, Special Services Section 9. Kusanagi was also charged by Aramaki in selecting the members of her team, which over the course of months included Batou, Togasa, Pazu, Ishikawa and Bourma.
