As the oldest of the four siblings, he leads the family conference. However, the other siblings think he is trying to get all of the inheritance for himself, and this further strains the tensions between them.
He is a real estate investor and has put a lot of money into the development of a resort. However, his results have been harshly criticized.
BackgroundKrauss is a struggling businessman with a history of being swindled into questionable business decisions, including ventures towards turning Rokkenjima into a resort and a moon tourism business.
AppearanceKrauss appears as an aging man with blond hair and a clean-shaven face. He wears a red double-breasted suit over a blue shirt, black vest, and yellow tie. The collar of his shirt and the left lapel of his suit both have the One-Winged Eagle imprinted on them.
