Cells at Work Characters
Red Blood Cell
A red blood cell who has just started her job, delivering oxygen, carbon dioxide and different nutrients all over the body. She meets Neutrophil when he saves her from an attacking pneumococcus bacterium.
She is clumsy and gets lost often, but is determined to perform to the best of her ability. It is later revealed that she had encountered Neutrophil when they were younger, after he saved her from a bacterium.
White Blood Cell
A type of white blood cell, whose job is to kill pathogens infecting the body. Despite his violent and ruthless occupation, he’s quite soft-spoken and gentle.
When he was still in school as a young cell, he saved AE3803 from a bacterium after she got lost in a training exercise.
Killer T Cell
A type of white blood cell that recognizes and kills various foreign matter and unhealthy cells. He is aggressive, cocky and rowdy, brutally taking pleasure in slaughtering pathogens and unhealthy cells.
He especially looks down on white blood cells forming relationships with non-white blood cells, like Neutrophil’s close friendship with Red Blood Cell.
He is the sergeant of the Killer T Cells and is a harsh teacher to his students, the Naive T Cells. He has negative relationships with Helper T Cell and NK Cell, the former being his superior in the Killer T Division.
In his youth, he was considered to be weak like the rest of the young T Cells, being only able to survive and complete training through the help of Helper T Cell, which at least made him stronger.
Naive T Cell
A rookie T Cell who is too frightened to fight invasive microorganisms, until Dendritic Cell helps him transform into Effector T Cell. He and his kind are the students of Killer T Cell, from whom they receive harsh treatment and austere training.
A type of white blood cell who is acquainted with White Blood Cell since they grew up in the same bone marrow.
She feels inferior to the other immune cells because of her inability to fight off bacteria and viruses, but she shows her true worth by killing a parasitic Anisakis when the other cells could not. She handles a bident as her weapon of choice.
