|Occupation||DEM Board Members|
|Novel Debut||Volume 8|
|Anime Debut||Date A Live Ⅲ Episode 2|
One of the more openly DEM board members that oppose the current DEM managing director because of his recent actions in the Japanese branch and the damage it received. However when he and other DEM Board Members try to vote him out of his leadership position over DEM because of that reason, they got their arms cut off by Ellen and it was seen as if the vote did not count.
He is described as an middle-aged man wearing glasses. It is said he was younger than the other board members, but still looked older than Westcott. In the anime, he has greyish black hair which reaches his eyebrows and is shown having prominent cheekbones. After Ellen cut off his arm, he is shown wearing a cast to help with the reattachment.
Originally, Murdoch was quite composed and brave, being willing to put up a diplomatic vote in order to remove Westcott from his position. However, after losing his arm to the man, he becomes vindictive and unhinged to the extent of being willing to sacrifice an entire city to kill Westcott. He is also overly cautious in his preparations, having planned to drop two additional satellites in case the first one failed. Even after becoming more unfettered in his efforts in revenge, Murdoch is still charismatic enough to convince other members of the board to betray Westcott.
A few days later, Murdoch along with the other members that have their arms severed were seen with their arms reattached with the help of a Medical Realizer. While they were sitting at the table, Murdoch suggested they should do something about it and proposed they should kill Westcott while he was in the Tengu City. Murdoch intended to use three of the Humpty Dumpty satellites and throw them into Tengu City to kill Westcott. However, many of the members were unsure to follow Murdoch's plan, as the whole city and its entire population would be destroyed as colleterial damage. But soon after a long debate, they all accept the idea and used the magic crystals to activate the satellites.
After the events, Ellen discovers Murdoch and the board members' conspiracy and has the DEM military forces arrest them.
- I DO NOT CARE IF YOU HAVE TO DESTROY THE CITY, BUT BRING ME THE HEAD WESTCOTT'S HEAD!
