Shinkawa Shoichi (新川 昌一 Shinkawa Shoichi?) is one of the 10,000 players who were trapped in «Sword Art Online» where he was infamously known as «Red-Eyed XaXa» (赤眼のザザ Chì Yǎnno ZaZa?). He later became a player of «Gun Gale Online» under the name Sterben (ステルベン Suteruben?). He is also the mysterious self-proclaimed «Death Gun», alongside his brother Shinkawa Kyouji, and is the main antagonist during the Phantom Bullet arc.
Sword Art OnlineEdit
Going by the nickname «Red-Eyed XaXa», Shoichi belongs to the red guild «Laughing Coffin». Shiochi wears a skeletal mask and a black cape with a hood. He has the guild tattoo on one of his arms.
Gun Gale OnlineEdit
Sterben's avatar in Gun Gale Online is similar to the one is Sword Art Online. Shoichi is terrifying and has dark clothing around him. He re-tattooed a half-opened coffin with an arm sticking out of inside, waving; the manga version of the emblem of «Laughing Coffin».
XaXa was one of the top members in the red guild «Laughing Coffin». He was a master of the «Estoc Thorn Sword» that was bathed in the color of red. He holds a grudge against Kirito and the clearers that defeated Laughing Coffin in the anti-PK raid. He was also partners with Johnny Black, and together served as a combination where they poisoned and killed.
After his release from SAO, through the recommendation of his brother Kyouji, he began to play Gun Gale Online. The two looked to another Laughing Coffin member and began to plot an ingenious plan to kill players in both the virtual world and the real world. He enters the Bullet of Bullets tournament under the name Sterben (ステルベン Sutenruben?) to prove his "true" killing ability to the rest of the world. He would stun people with special shells from his L115A3 Silent Assassin sniper rifle and then get up close to shoot them with his «Death Gun», a 7.62 X 25 handgun. While he committed the kill in-game, his brother and the other Laughing Coffin member would inject the players in the real world with a syringe filled with succinylcholine, which stopped the heart. They had obtained the address by hiding under a «Metamaterial Optical Camouflage» while they watched the other players type their real addresses during the BoB registration process. His plans were foiled by Kirito and Sinon, and eventually goes to prison after the incident had passed.
