Lord Kelvin () Discoveries. Along with a talent for mathematics, Lord Kelvin (William Thomson) had a practical ability for solving problems. This could range from a dripping tap to poor signals from a telegraph cable. It led him to invent instruments that helped with communication and marine navigation, as well as physics.

Baron Kelvin (ケルヴィン, Keruvin) is a philanthropist, and the creator and patron of the Noah's Ark Circus. He is referred to as "Father" by the first-string members. Kelvin is completely wrapped in bandages with only his left eye and mouth revealed.
