His job is "finding the flaws in the world and then correcting them." He is involved in a case dealing with "gemstones," looking into information about them. He has contacts all over the globe as shown when he received reports of "girls that look exactly like his daughter appearing simultaneously in 50 places around the world" in addition to the plans by various other governments and agencies not affiliated with Academy City attempting to capture all the gemstones.
He later appears in a bar and meets Kamijou Touya. After introducing each other, and having Touya's subordinate, Tanaka, accidentally accost an office lady he thought was a prostitute, the Gemstone Girl that Touya met the other day appears before him in the bar. Men in black suddenly arrive in the bar, but are quickly dispatched by the girl with a mysterious power, which Tabigake points out as being a Gemstone. Seeing this, Touya quickly leaves the bar with Tanaka, but is being pursued by the girl. In the end, Touya and Tanaka got out of the problems that began to pile up by blowing up a Cessna plane as it flew off.

Tabigake is inside a London bar while the GREMLIN invasion of Tokyo occurs, complaining to a man on the other side of the line of his satellite phone regarding the frozen transactions. The man on the phone replies saying that the countries are preparing for war, selling valuable objects until the world passes the boiling point. Tabigake points out how if both sides stop trading, they will not able to be self-sufficient long enough before their selling of valuables pays off. The man on the phone says that he shouldn't blame him, and complains on how he should be grateful as he is in Europe and he is in Africa.
The man then turns to asking him if he is fine being in London right now as Tokyo has become a battlefield, asking him why he didn't rush to his family. Tabigake says that he tried every method he could think of, but all the airlines have shut down, he can't use his connections in the RAF, and his calls and e-mails aren't getting through, as such he went back to work because nothing worked out for him. The man on the other side becomes frightened of Tabigake casually mentioning the RAF. Tabigake says that he also tried getting a civilian space trip, but didn't pan out as well due to the panic despite him promising to pay. He then wonders if he can buy a Soviet warplane from the European mafia. The man is boggled by this but Tabigake continues, frustrated that he can't return to Japan immediately, and starts thinking of a buying an old ballistic missile and climb inside as the payload. This however continues to disconcert the man on the other side.
Character Art DesignsEdit
Misaka Tabigake's design was made by Haimura Kiyotaka to look more like a member of the mafia or con man and less like a businessman. His design remains static throughout the series.

But there’s one thing you need to keep in mind: if you do anything to my wife or daughter, what do you think will happen once I find out? Do you know what it means to make an enemy of a mere father? Think about those things.”
