An unnamed elderly man was Juror 6 in the trial of Soseki Natsume for the attempted murder of Olive Green. After the resolution of said case, he was called upon the following day as a juror once again after Natsume was accused of the attempted murder of William Shamspeare.
He was called for jury duty once again in Gina Lestrade's trial for the murder of Pop Windibank and assault of Herlock Sholmes, although in this instance he was Juror 4 and dressed as a surgeon, rather than in the casual clothing he wore for Natsume's trials.
Natsume's first trial
- Main article: The Adventure of the Clouded Kokoro
During Natsume's first trial, Juror 6 revealed to the court that he had slipped on a frozen road on his way home, causing him to lose consciousness. He claimed to have then seen his wife in heaven before waking up, and proceeded to go and see his grandchildren. However, he didn't see any Japanese men like Natsume at the time.
Later in the trial, he mentioned an incident on his seventy-fifth birthday where the large number of candles on his birthday cake caused his home to catch fire; defense attorney Ryunosuke Naruhodo was confused by this statement, as birthday candles were not a Japanese tradition. Juror 6 and his grandchildren tried to put the flames out with water and opened the window to let the smoke out, which proceeded to let the freezing winter weather in and give him a cold. However, this statement causing Naruhodo to realize that the window of John and Joan Garrideb's room must have been open at the time of the incident, as an altercation between the married couple resulted in their rug catching fire. Upon the conclusion of the trial, he commented that the incident would make a great story for his grandchildren.
Natsume's second trial
- Main article: The Memoirs of the Clouded Kokoro
After Natsume was accused of poisoning of William Shamspeare the following day, the same elderly man was once again called as a juror. As the trial began, he prayed to God to lead him to the correct verdict. After voting guilty, he stated that the three hour gap between Natsume leaving Shamspeare's room and the poison taking effect made little difference. Later in the trial, after once again voting guilty, he decided that the fact Shamspeare had not consumed anything other than the tea Natsume gave him was decisive evidence, until Naruhodo pointed out that the gas pipe could have been responsible. After Naruhodo presented handprints gathered using an invention belonging to Herlock Sholmes, which Prosecutor Barok van Zieks tried to dismiss as invalid evidence, the elderly juror changed his vote.

The day before the trial, he lost his scalpel in the chest cavity of a patient. After Sholmes was apparently shot, he was the one who operated on him. However, he was surprised to find no sign of a bullet. During the trial, defense attorney Ryunosuke Naruhodo was able to work out that Sholmes's injury had been caused by a shattered test tube, rather than a bullet.
During his court appearances as Juror 6, he was generally amenable, if hard-of-hearing.
As Juror 4, he was somewhat forgetful, but apparently the best doctor in London, according to Tobias Gregson. He had the habit of keeping his hands raised, most likely to keep them sterile, and thus used his forehead to cast his verdict instead of his hand.
He enjoyed reading books in the evening, and would fall asleep at 2 in the morning, waking up at 5.
- Although Juror 6 from The Adventure of the Clouded Kokoro & The Memoirs of the Clouded Kokoro and Juror 4 from The Adventure of the Unspeakable Story are physically identical, albeit with different clothing and animations, it is unclear if they are one and the same person. However, the fact that there is no separate art for his surgeon appearance in The Art of Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken indicates that they are likely intended to be the same individual.
- During The Adventure of the Unspeakable Story Juror 4 mentions that he misplaced the scalpel and might've left it inside his patient after the surgery. This is a possible reference to Osamu Tezuka's "Blackjack" manga where the main character learns from his mentor on his deathbed that during the surgery that saved his life his mentor accidentally left the scalpel inside him and used a follow up surgery as an excuse to go back and retrieve it.
