Meet "Major" Motoko Kusanagi,
cyberspace operative for Section 9, a government agency charged with identifying and eliminating criminal activity. Kusanagi is almost completely cybernetic, as are many others, and she is an excellent officer--strong, skilled, superhuman. But this is just her shell.
Inside, in her spare time, she contemplates her "ghost," her consciousness, her soul, her self. This contemplation runs headlong into her latest assignment--apprehending a criminal called the Puppetmaster, a--pawn?--who is hacking into human brains, hacking into their very ghosts.
