Sojiro Kori (宗次郎コリ), known by the username Jiro (二郎), was one of the 10,000 players trapped in «Sword Art Online». He was a founding member of a Clearer guild called «Brightscale». He and Kusaka Kori are cousins.
Sojiro and Kusaka share little physical resemblance despite their familial relation: in Kenji's own words Kusaka has hair as black as the ace of spades, whilst Sojiro's is as blond as a Barbie dolls. Sojiro wears more protective gear than fellow DPS Kenji and appears as a grounded lancer with a large two-handed spear.
Sojiro is quiet and reserved and, in the beginning when SAO turned deadly, admitted to being unsure of what he was going to do. After meeting up with Kusaka the cousins resolved to stay together and survive, with Sojiro being a mainstay of Kusaka's Team B. When Kusaka would be likely to explode in anger at a situation, Sojiro would instead accept it with good grace.

Sojiro is a DPS who prefers the use of a large two-handed assault spear. He's a mainstay of Kusaka's Team B but in raid-party settings he pairs up with Kenji as his fellow DPS, with the two switching in between post-motion delays. Depending on the situation he has also played the role of debuffer, launching debilitating paralysis attacks and slowing affects. Before joining up with Kusaka he was used to the two-party dynamic of himself and Yoshiro.
