He is the principal of Shujin Academy. He appears on the day when the protagonist first arrives at the school on Sunday for registration. The principal assigns the protagonist to Sadayo Kawakami's class 2-D which is also attended by Ann Takamaki and Yuki Mishima because it is the only class of second year with vacancy.
After the Phantom Thieves of Hearts stole Suguru Kamoshida's arrogance and made him confess in front of the whole student body, the principal becomes worry of the possibility that the Phantom Thieves are students of the school, and that it will taint the school's reputation, so he asks Makoto Niijima to investigate who the Thieves are. When Makoto stops the investigation as she claims that she does not have any proof that the Thieves are from their school and believes they are justice as Makoto has become a member of the gang, the principal received a phone call from someone he called "Sensei," apologizing and promises he will try to find out about the Thieves.
After Kunikazu Okumura has died in the live conference, the principal receives a calling card shortly afterward. He is called to the police station for interrogation but is quickly dismissed. Just leaving the facility he then feels a strong pain in his chest before his eyes becomes hollow, and he walks to the middle of the street, resulting him die being crashed by a truck. The next day at school, his death is announced as a suicide, but rumors start to circulate around the school that the Thieves are the ones responsible of changing his heart since there are no signs of the principal that may lead him wanting to kill himself. The truth is that the calling card and his death are staged by Goro Akechi as part of the plan to frame the Thieves and make himself into the gang for proceeding the next phase of his grand scheme.
