Sōe Nakiri (薙切 宗衛 Nakiri Sōe) is the founder of Nakiri International and Alice Nakiri's father.
Sōe has slick, dark hair with a notable crest that sweeps upwards and has inherited the same defined eyebrows of his father, Senzaemon. He wears glasses and wore a closed suit with a tie upon his introduction.
Stoic, serious, and professional, Sōe embodies the typical Nakiri family demeanor in regards to the culinary industry. Even as a Judge, he clearly has stated that he would remain completely neutral. Even if the person in competition was his own daughter, he would show no bias. Like his father, he also disrobes whenever he is impressed with a dish. Unlike Senzaemon however, his aura is so immense he can cause the other judges to involuntarily do the same.
However, professionalism aside, Sōe is extremely devoted and loving to his wife and daughter, carrying pictures of the two in his pocket and constantly fawning over their loveliness.
Born to Senzaemon Nakiri, Sōe grew up as one of the heads of the Nakiri family. Most of his early life is unknown, but in his young adult life, he met Leonora whom he eventually wed. The two eventually sired a daughter, Alice. During the early years of Alice's life, Sōe lived in the Nakiri Mansion, but he soon founded the Nakiri International organization to hone in on researching the culinary arts. With the Facility in Denmark, Sōe wanted Alice to stay at the Nakiri Mansion, but she insisted on moving with her parents to Denmark in order to gain more skills and Sōe obliged.
