Novartis is dressed in the typical garb of a scientist, inventor and professor. He wears a medium length lab-coat, while underneath he wears a dark blue vest and white dress shirt. To complete his outfit he wears tan coloured dress pants and sand coloured boots.
His personality is similar to the stereotype of a mad scientist, in that he prioritises his creations over the safety of anything else, including other human beings. This trait is further shown in his obsession with obtaining results, where he is willing to ignore safety procedures and take risks for the sake of his experiments.
He is responsible for the creation of the three Goldius-Class robots in Zero No Kiseki. When the final one is about to be destroyed, he makes an appearance to save his creation, warping it and himself away before it can be destroyed.
- He is first mentioned during Sora No Kiseki SC, although he does not make his first unseen appearance until the sequel.
