The Thug (凶悪犯, Kyōaku-han) was a man who attempts to kidnap and rape Rei Miyamoto in front of the Shaun gas station.
He has tan skin and braces. He dresses in a T-shirt with DUNK written on the back, basketball shorts, and laceless sneakers. He also has an earring on one ear, two necklaces, a watch, a ring on his right middle finger, two rings on his left middle and ring fingers, and he wears a handkerchief tied on his head, covered with a white baseball cap. He appears to be of African American origin hence his skin tone, his appearance also resembles a rapper.
He mentions having a family while he is threatening Takashi. Apparently all of them, including his mother, father, grandmother, brother, and little sister became "them" and he was forced to kill them. This incident made him go insane, and inspired him with an intense hate of "them". He was seen cleaning a silver car while his younger sister returned home from school.
He is shown to be psychotic and perverted. He is also shown to be selfish as he cares for nothing more than his own safety and his own tragedy. This is particularly highlighted when he gropes Rei.
His personality and demeanor before the outbreak is unknown. It could be interpreted that he was more civil before the outbreak, due to his claim that he became insane only because he had to kill his entire infected family and because his demeanor is a more positive one in the picture present in the ending credits of the anime where he is smiling as he is washing a car as his younger sister comes home from school.
