Visual-kei drummer whose personality is still in mystery.

He has a good pitch and he is a good singer and songwriter.
With his extraordinary driving skill, he overcomes Manhattan traffic when the band is on tour. Also, he is the most outgoing person in the band.
He is a cook and a patissier, and he sometimes is called "Jake The Cake", since his cake is so good. He himself seems to prefer being called "Jake The Snake" though.
