Van and Co. initially met Dr. D at his home in the mountains, where he was trying to make snow. Renowned for his prolific scientific knowledge and reputation as being the foremost Zoid expert, Van and Irvine sought him out to find if he knew anything of Zoid Eve. He did not, and instead sent them on errands to fix his snow-making machine. Eventually, snow does fall on his mountain (albeit not due to Dr. D's invention), and Van's group leaves. Later Dr. D regroups with Van's group sporadically, and he is revealed to be a man of great influence, both with the Republican military and government, although he has been long retired. He is, however, eccentric, and vanishes and reappears at seemingly random times. Nonetheless he is extremely helpful to Van's group, and is invaluable in their dealings with the Imperial army.
Dr. D returns in Guardian Force. After initially taking on Fiona as an assistant, studying ancient ruins, he eventually works more closely with the Empire's forces, developing the Lightning Saix. He also aids Van directly, building the Attack Boosters for his Blade Liger. furthermore, he builds the boosters that Irvine and Thomas use in modified Storm Sworders that are used to defeat Hiltz's Hammer Kaiser. Finally, he builds the Gravity Cannon and four shells, and thus makes him perhaps the most important factor in the eventual defeat of both the Death Stinger and revived Death Saurer.
Dr. D makes a minor appearence in Zoids Legacy. After the main game is completed he will appear in Sandstorm arena's zoid laboratory. After speaking to Van, Fiona, and Zeru, he will raise any of pulses colors by five points for free.
An eccentric, absent-minded, but nonetheless brilliant scientist, Dr. D is one of the more vibrant characters of the two original Zoids series. He, like Fiona, likes his coffee with salt.
Like ever other character, Dr. D has his own unique relationships;
Van: Van is often misled by Dr. D's eccentricities, but nonetheless respects him as a friend and scientist. In Chaotic Century, Van treated him as a young child would, rather brashly. In Guardian Force, the more mature Van treats him somewhat more respectfully, but nonetheless retains some of his informal mannerisms.
Fiona: Fiona and Dr. D get along well, with her being a (rather absent-minded) ancient Zoidain, and him a (highly eccentric) researcher. Furthermore the two enjoy having coffee with salt in it.
Moonbay: Moonbay's rough nature often does not mix with Dr. D's absent eccentricities, but the two get along well. A prominent examples are where he gives Moonbay a "borrowed" military booster for her race in Zoids: Guardian Force Episode 18, only to turn on her in the same episode by having her take the blame for this illicit acquisition.
Irvine: Irvine is constantly annoyed by Dr. D's eccentricities, and frequently gets annoyed by his roundabout way of doing things. Nonetheless, Irvine does respect the Doctor, and the two are friends.
