Non-standard Kanji

In the above screenshots, there is a pictogram of a person with two squares above and two squares below. What is this kanji? (disclaimer: I looked all throughout the Joyo list and the Wikitionary list already. JWPce doesn't have it either).
A good slave does not realize he is one; the best slave will not accept that he has become one.

器?

That's the weirdest description for a kanji I ever beheld  :D
The "person" would be the radical 大 (big thingy), and the 4 squares should be 口 (mouth thingy). 器 can evoke the idea of an instrument.
武器 (buki) should mean "weapon". Both kanjis are indeed joyou kanji.

"Military instrument" = weapon. Makes sense.
