Captain Tylor is a very carefree guy with an upbeat personality. His goofy and laidback nature tends to lead people to underestimate him. If there are rules that he doesn't agree with he simply uses his authority as captain to change them to his will, much to the other officers' chagrin. He knows very little about actually commanding a ship and leaves many duties to his lieutenants.

His kindness and aloofness draw people to him. If someone is feeling down he will do his best to cheer them up, no matter who that person may be. He holds no grudges toward anyone and never gets truly angry. His bouts of seriousness are far and few between, but when they do happen they are always moments to be remembered.

In the face of danger he would much prefer to run than fight. He is rather cowardly in this respect and is scared rather easily. He can also appear quite lazy and often shirks his duties. However, when push comes to shove, he is always willing to risk his own life for the sake of his crew. 

Tylor is talented at judging a person's character and genuinely cares for other people, especially his crew. He says that the reason he flirts with women so often is that they all deserve to be cherished--although usually his attempts earn him a slap to the face. Whether enemy or ally he can respect another person's abilities and is friendly to everyone. 

Throughout the series he is shown to have what many call 'the Devil's own luck.' Whenever he gets into a tricky situation he always manages to find a way out, usually unintentionally. This leads people to wonder if he really is just an extremely lucky fool or if he is actually much more intelligent than he acts. 

It is revealed that he does not act irresponsible intentionally; it is simply a part of who he is. In the last episode he tells Yuriko to tell his crew two things: "don't live according to someone else's rules" and "do what you want the way you want to." 


In the beginning of the first episode it is presumed that Tylor is broke and in need of a job. After watching a commercial advertising the UPSF he decided to enlist in the hopes of getting an easy desk job. He was originally assigned to the Pension Department, but during one of his assignments he foiled a terrorist plot to kidnap and kill a retired UPSF admiral. For saving his life Tylor was promoted to Captain of the Soyokaze.


  • Oddly enough, in the English release of the anime Tylor's name is written as "Tailor" during the commercial break sequences.
