He always tells the fortunes of everything that he sees, even noting the potential of death and fate in anything from a person's clothing, to their life . He is always completely calm (regardless of the situation) and never shows emotional response . He is also against the idea of needless violence, as seen when he stopped his crewmate from attacking a waiter after spaghetti was accidentally spilled all over his clothes.
