Takeo Shiroishi (城石丈雄,   Shiroishi Takeo) is a scientist character created by Toho who first appeared in episode 1 of the the 1996 tokusatsu series, Guyferd titled "The Birth of Guyferd!". He began working with Fallah and the Crown organization with hopes of using it to revolutionize the world of medicine.



"The Birth of Guyferd!"

After an experiment with the Fallah virus went horribly wrong, Professor Shiroishi accidentally turned his assistant Kihara into a monster. He tried to contain her in the lab and called for an evacuation. While trying to explain the situation to his superiors, Kihara burst down the door and attacked Shiroishi, demanding to know why he had tried to lock her up. However, a group of three Guyborgs came to dispatch her. She overpowered them, but then dropped dead. No longer wanting any part in the whole organization, Shiroishi began burning all of his research. He was quickly approached by Mr. Bikross, the facility's owner who refused to let him quit and subtly informed him that the purpose of his research had been for military purposes, much to Shiroishi's anger. Professor Shiroishi was then introduced to his replacement as head of the project, Megumi Shion who revealed that they had already made copies of his work, and was taken away by the two surviving Guyborgs from earlier.

After unknown time spent as a prisoner, Shiroishi knew that his predictions for continued research into Fallah had come true when the facility entered lockdown and alarms began to sound. However, in the confusion, his cell door came unlocked and he was able to escape. While in the forest surrounding the facility, he came upon Go Kazama, who was escaping from the Guyborg program, and told him about Fallah and how it affected people as they watched the Mutian Jerks fight off three Guyborgs. They were quickly defeated, and Go refused to fight the monster. Unwilling to let it go free, Shiroishi charged and seized the Guyborg's fallen machine gun and shot at Jerks, only for Go to defend him from Jerks' might. Shiroishi tried again, but was quickly incapacitated. He awoke shortly before the fight ended, and witnessed Go undergo a mysterious transformation, which his expertise with Fallah taught him meant that he had reached the rare "Guyferd" state of Fallah symbiosis, which allowed him to defeat Jerks. He turned back after the fight, and Shiroishi helped him walk away from the burning fortress.

"In Peril! Go"

He watched over the sleeping Go for three days before he finally awoke. He explained to the young fighter about Fallah, and theorized that he became infected by it somewhere in the Crown facility and due to his modified Guyborg body, he had somehow influenced the Fallah to become symbiotic with him, avoiding the mutations seen in Mutians. He explained that his original intention was to study Fallah for its medicinal applications, but with Crown's dedication to using it for military purposes, he proclaimed that only the Guyferd, a being perfectly integrated with Fallah could stop them. He and Go then went to Jerks' old dojo where they found Rei Kujo searching the place for clues just before she ran off to find Masato. Her little brother Yu Kujo offered him a business card upon introducing himself, a traditional greeting among Japanese businessmen, not realizing that it had information that allowed Go to recognize the kids were walking into a trap. They arrived at an abandoned building to see the Mutian Doggross attacking them, and Go leapt into action, but to Shiroishi's surprise refused to transform into Guyferd.

Yu and Rei then set Go and Shiroishi up in Masato's old apartment, taking over the payments using their family's vast fortune. While searching Masato's room for clues, Go downed a Crown Command Satellite, and they drove after the kids by tracking the energy signatures the drones put out. When Shiroishi arrived, he found Rei and Yu hiding while Go fought Doggross. He was initially confused about why Go had not transformed, but remembered his desire to keep his cyborg transformation a secret and ushered the kids away, allowing him to defeat the Mutian before collapsing. Shiroishi and the kids woke him up and took him home, where Takeo acknowledged Go's fear of becoming inhuman, but reassured him that his heart was what kept him human, not his body.

"Protect! A Small Life"

Shiroishi and Go tracked down a vial of Fallah to a nearby hospital operated by a former colleague of the professor's, named Ayako. The two had long since fallen out after Shiroishi's joining Crown, and she rejected their warnings, but allowed them to stay on the hospital grounds, where Shiroishi sat on a bench regretting his life choices. He reasoned that if he hadn't joined Crown things would be better, and Go might never have been converted into a Guyborg, and that if he had never become a scientist in the first place, Crown might never have gotten far enough with their Fallah research to cause the levels of destruction they had. While on the bench, a plane-shaped rubber band glider toy landed at his feet, and a young patient from a second floor window. The boy, named Hiroshi, came to get his plane from Shiroishi, and spoke with him about planes and his desire to become a pilot when he is well enough to go to school. Hiroshi was afflicted by a immunodeficiency, that Shiroishi suspected Fallah could have a hand in curing. It turned out that Hiroshi was one of Ayako's patients, and he claimed that both doctors had the same weary eyes. Go then spotted the Ayako holding a vial of Fallah before they all heard her scream. Shiroishi ran to protect his friend while Go battled the invading Metalferd Globe. During the fight, Hiroshi ran out to help, and was struck in the head by debris, causing him to be rushed into the operating room while Guyferd finished the fight. Unfortunately, Ayako discovered that the shipment of Hiroshi's rare blood type had been delayed by a landslide, and if Hiroshi did not receive it by morning, he would not survive. Shiroishi took all of the burden on himself and ran out into the storm to drive to the stranded truck only to find that his car would not start. Luckily for him, Detective Yuji Nakano had been monitoring the hospital after the Crown attack, and drove Shiroishi to the site, where he obtained the blood. On returning to the hospital, he was accosted by Globe, and some Fangs, but Hiroshi was soon able to enter surgery. With the threat eliminated, Go and Shiroishi left the hospital before the operation was complete, but he began to have more faith in himself, and believe that he was capable of doing good in the world.
