He has purple hair and eyes resembling his daughter's. He also wears a black suit with a purple tie.
He is strict to the whole school but has soft feelings for his daughter, Kyoko, and was also impressed by how much she had already discovered when he asked her to investigate Izuru Kamukura in Dangan Ronpa/Zero.
According to Kirigiri, he wasn't interested in succeeding his family of detectives and left them to eventually become the headmaster of Hope's Peak Academy.
High School Life of Mutual KillingEdit
Although he was executed before the actual events of Dangan Ronpa, he is brought up again later. When Alter Ego decodes the files left on the computer, it reveals to the students that the Mastermind is likely the headmaster of Kibougamine Academy - a man in his thirties. However, it was unknown to Alter Ego that Jin Kirigiri had already been executed by Monokuma and was no longer the headmaster.
After Kyoko steals Monokuma's key, she investigates the second floor of the school and discovers the headmaster's room. When Naegi investigates the room later, he discovers the door to a hidden room than can only be opened with a password which turns out to be his daughter's name, "Kyoko". In the hidden room, Naegi and Kyoko find a gift box containing human bones, which Kyoko deduces are those of her father and the headmaster, Jin Kirigiri.
