Years later when he was announcing his successor, he told his son, Koichi Shidou, that he was going to select his younger half brother that he had with his mistress. When he came under investigation for his corrupt practices by officer Tadashi Miyamoto, he called his son who had become a teacher. Miyamoto's daughter was a student in Koichi's school.
