In fact, he is only shown through media like television, or through flashbacks.
Though it is never shown in the series, he seems to be a caring and loving father toward his daughter and wife.
When Shirley was still a young girl, she innocently said that she wanted to "marry" her father, but he told her that one day she will find another man that she will love more than him and that, that would make him happy.
Before the Battle of Narita, he and 2 other scientists were in a research lab, reluctantly investigating Code R, under Bartley Asprius, even adding up there wa no use complaining about the research and Bartley's decision.
He is unknowingly killed by Kallen Kozuki in the landslide of the. His death caused great sorrow for his family, so much that during his funeral, when a man is filling up his grave, his wife has an emotional breakdown, telling them that she doesn't want her husband to be buried again, implying that she had a great relationship with her husband when he was still alive. His death also caused Shirley to kiss Lelouch for the first time during her depression, while also provoking her to blame Zero for his death.
- In the Code Geass light novels, he is said to be one of the scientists that worked on Code R under Bartley Asprius, as an explanation for why he is caught in the Narita landslide after Narita is evacuated. The anime series provides an explicit reason for his presence, but not any other details.
