Taklamakan Strange Love (タクラマカン・ストレインジ・ラヴ Takuramakan Sutoreinji Ravu?), more commonly referred to as Dr. Love (ドクター・ラヴ Dokutā Rabu?), is a scientist affiliated with ēlDLIVE.

Appearance Edit

Before his rejuvenation, he appeared as an old man with greyish skin, white hair swept away from his face, thick eyebrows and mustache, and blue eyes.

In his new younger body, he looks like a teenage boy with messy blue hair and large blue eyes. He has two black ear piercings, a tattoo on his neck, and black nails.

He is usually wearing a white lab coat, white shirt, and black pants. He also wore the Shirobori Middle School uniform when he enrolled. He always wears black bracelets on both of his wrists, and black necklaces.

Personality Edit

Dr. Love is an intelligent man who has a lot of knowledge on a wide variety of topics, and enjoys explaining them whether anyone is listening or not.

He is a very calm, serene man, and rarely gets flustered. This can be best seen in Season 3, where he barely reacts when he got arrested wrongly by élDLIVE for murder or when Ninotchka was fighting Chuuta in order to kidnap him. He is also a bit insensitive to the feelings of others, and likes to be blunt.

He likes a hands-on approach to scientific observations, sometimes too much, such as when he was feeling up Veronica's legs because of her powerful leg muscles due to being a Kushutonian. He does not appear to have any actual perverted tendencies, however.

History Edit

Dr. Love was one of the greatest scientists, who in the past has helped ēlDLIVE with his researches and to catch criminals with his inventions. He created the Taklamakan Project, which was a series of experiments to transplant an SPH generating organ from another individual and attempt to correct the subject's personality. The experiments continue to produce dead test subjects or test subjects with a fatal defect.

Dr. Love was first mentioned in chapter 10 when a green haired man was looking for him. The description given was "A 500 years old fossil that is being treated as a god or devil depending on the planet he's in." When a fake double of Dr. Love was found by a criminal, the criminal stated that his objective is to get Dr. Love's brain.

There is a lack of escorts to protect Dr. Love due to his extreme hate for meddlers. So, a certain galaxy's government has been protecting him by leaking false information. When 4 out of 5 of Dr. Love's doubles have been killed, a request came to ēlDLIVE to shelter Dr. Love because the government cannot leave him out alone with so much danger.
