His idiosyncratic nose might well lead you into believing that he was, without doubt, related to Dr. Ochanomizu. However, whilst Dr. Ochanomizu was a "good-natured fellow" who was always smiling nonchalantly, Saruta lived a life of extreme hardship at the mercy of fate, habitually showing the dark side of human nature, and had the talent to give such serious performances. You could say that between them Dr. Ochanomizu and Saruta took on the roles of showing the "light" and "dark" sides of a human heart. Saruta gave his most characteristic performance as Gao in "The Phoenix: Chapter of Ho-o".
