Harry learned martial arts while he was in the navy. He is a skilled fighter and even earned money as a street fighter for a while before he was discharged from military service. In his hometown he became a legend after having 98 consecutive wins. He can be a friendly person when he feels like it and likes to go drinking in the evenings around Dobuita. His friends call him "Crazy Harry" because when he gets angry, no one can control him.

  • When Harry ambushes Ryo for the first time at the New Yokosuka Harbor District, and Ryo beats him and the other sailors that were with him, Harry in the original Japanese version said "Goddamn!". In the English version, this was changed to "Oh man!".
