Armstrong, known as Takasu in the Japanese version and simply Chief in Stardust Accelerator, is the Chief of The Facility. He is a large, overwhelming man with a cruel personality and a particularly loud, booming voice. He seems to have large, muscular arms but also a thick, fat, and slightly jutting/overhanging belly, giving him a generally bulky and stocky overall appearance. He is noticeably uncouth as well; one of his favorite interrogation techniques is to pull out his own nose hair and blow it into his victim's face (this is edited in the dub, where he simply has foul breath, presumably due to his huge appetite). He is devoted to Goodwin, and often serves as his bodyguard when he visits the prison.
