He is a well-known and powerful politician, who is resented by Rei because he never came to see Risa while she was ailing in the hospital. He left Rei with her grandfather in order to focus on his career and only meets with her on her birthday, where he would give her a white dress and a bouquet of casablanca lilies which was really picked out by his secretary Kaidou. Rei does not like her father at all, since all he cares about is politics. After her mother passed, Rei happily moved in with her grandfather and lived there since.
He was a busy politician who never visited his dying wife in the hospital. He dislikes his daughter's powers and he only visited her once a month to look good for the media. His secretary in this story was called Nishizaki and Rei had no special friendship with him in this version.
