Hart Vortex was the Chief Justice of London during the time that Ryūnosuke Naruhodō stayed in the city.

The Professor Killings Edit

Main article: The Professor Killings

Hart Vortex was originally a prosecutor working in London. He pictured a brighter and crime-free London, but he was unable to do anything with that vision. He eventually figured out that another prosecutor, Klimt van Zieks had been working under the alias "The Professor," a known serial killer in the area of London. Vortex took this as a chance and proceeded to blackmail van Zieks, then ordering him to kill the Chief Justice at the time so that he could assume the position of Chief Justice.

Personality Edit

Hart Vortex is a man with an eye for time, often apologizing for his tardiness.

He exhibits deep pride for the great British Empire and thinks highly of his own country.


  • The first breakdown Vortex has in The Resolve of Naruhodō Ryūnosuke is quite similar to Damon Gant's breakdown in Rise from the Ashes in that both characters clap with increasing frequency. Perhaps by coincidence, the two characters also have a somewhat similar appearance, and both had a high rank in law enforcement (Chief Justice and District Chief of Police respectively).
  • He is also similar to Matt Engarde. While they never physically killed anyone, they hired assassins to kill people for them.
