An eccentric old man ridiculed for his outlandish theories, Hiroshi has lived as a bit of a hermit, but never lives alone by way of his grandchildren living with him. His zany experiments and his superstitious beliefs often land him and the Space Police Force in trouble with the public, and for the longest time, Inspector Satsuda has believed him to be responsible for a bank robbery... only to learn the hard way it was not Hiroshi who made the robbery.

To build the Amano Peace Labs, he sold out his ancestral mountain lands, however for more money to support his peace inventions, he didn't pay the inheritance tax.
