Heidi's sponsor is a yet unnamed old man who is part of White Joker's upper echelon[1] where he is secretly observing Heidi[2] by sponsoring all of his researches' funding.[3]

Personality Edit

Not much is known about him, due the mysterious acting of his, inferred from his presence on a large room observing Heidi through unknown means. It's implied, however, that he's a rich person, openly giving Heidi ten million yen for his research,[4] as well an intelligent individual, given his knowledge about Eureka. He also seems to be close to Heidi, as he refers to him as "Heidi-kun", and expressed his eagerness to see how far he would go with his new powers.[5]

Appearance Edit

He is an aged man with wrinkles and sports a rather messy, pale-colored hair to which due to his old age, it doesn't cover most of his forehead. Additionally, he has a long nose and also grows mustache in which covers his entire upper lips. He wears rings in his fingers, among ordinary, thick ones, and ones with carved gems.

Plot Edit

Genius vs. God Arc Edit

Haiji's sponsor observes him

Heidi's sponsor watches him.

Heidi's sponsor was first seen after Heidi found a glowing corpse, calling him to ask for ten million yen more for his research's funds. He apparently grants Heidi the money, despite some annoyance observed in the young scientist's speech after receiving the answer.[4]

The following events that happen to Heidi, including the transformation of the glowing corpse, and the awakening of his Eureka, are later revelead to have been observed by his sponsor somehow. He is shown in a dark room, sitting on a chair with a near table, and watching several screens that display the image of what was happening to Heidi at the moment. He then notes that another Eureka has awaken, and that he was eager to see how far Heidi will go.[5]

Heidi then goes to a hospital to be treated, staying in a room paid by his sponsor. However, for some reason, he stops answering Heidi's calls, but it doesn't worry the scientist, as he can simply find another.[6]

At the end of Heidi's fight against the God-class Mavro, the old man can be seen, along with the rest of White Joker's upper echelon members, receiving a report about the said fight from one of the White Joker's associates whom was also participating at the auction. Additionally, after hearing from another member about Alan Blackman, Mira Caldicott and Vivian Blanchard's report which confirms that Heidi is one of their allies, the said old man starts making his speech about the Mavro's current superiority while also mentioning that it is time for the humans to fight back and make the so-called God species their prey. Thus, he proceeds on declaring the activation of the final phase of White Joker's grand plan in which was given the codename: Hungry Joker.[7]
