Dirrel (ディレル Direru) is the President of the United States of America (POTUS). He acts as both an ally and an antagonist for Japan.
Like his fellow leaders in China and Russia, Dirrel is an opportunist who plans to use the untapped resources in Falmart in order to benefit his nation. He is also shown to be the most short-tempered and impatient as he explodes in a rage after the twin failures from the Hakone Incident and the Ginza kidnapping. Despite this, he is a skilled politician as he still manages to ensure that the UnitedStates will still benefit from their military alliance with Japan.
President Dirrel is depicted as a middle-aged white man with blue eyes, as well as blonde hair that is swept forward.
Not long after the Ginza Incident, Dirrel meets with his cabinet and proposes a plan to send an invasion force through the Gate to colonize the Special Region due to the USA having superior military power over the JSDF. However, several advisors point out that the American government cannot risk the international political backlash as well as the fact that they are still fighting numerous wars in the Middle East. He agrees to allow the JSDF to map the area and deal with the Empire first. After the JDSF has exhausted its supplies, the U.S. will offer reinforcements. He finalizes an agreement that, in exchange for economic concessions, such as access to the petroleum and ore fields, the USA will provide ammunition, armament, materiel, military supplies, and weaponry, along with the threat of nuclear retaliation in the event of an invasion. The USA will give diplomatic leverage at the United Nations and support Japan’s claim on ownership of the Gate. He shows interest in obtaining DNA samples from the demihumans in the Empire for genetic research.
However, as the war progresses and the JSDF enjoys continued victories, he decides to use the Japanese Senate Hearing as a means to obtain a citizen from beyond the gate. Secretly, he orders a kidnapping operation and, to further ensure that the operation is not obstructed, he threatens to publicly reveal information on corruption in the Japanese government. In exchange for their non-interference, he will allow the Japanese government to save face and force the implicated Japanese officials to honorably resign. After the failure of the CIA special operations forces in attempting to capture Rory Mercury, Tuka Luna Marceau, Lelei La Lalena, Pina Co Lada, and Bozes Co Palesti during the Hakone Incident, he decides to use the existing trade and military treaties to ensure that American corporations can still reap profit while excluding the other Superpowers. His direct aggression is downplayed and diplomatic maneuvers are emphasized.
After his term ends, he is replaced by Mahana as President of the United States.
