Dr. Isaac Gilmore is one of the main characters of Shotaro Ishinomori's Cyborg 009 franchise and a supporting character of the OVA crossover film Cyborg 009 vs. Devilman. He is portrayed by Shigeru Ushiyama in the original Japanese version and by Dave Mallow in the English dub.
Dr. Gilmore, depending on the incarnation, was either tricked into working for Black Ghost or was a member of their science researchers until he had a change of heart. In any case, he defected from the organization and was one of the orchestrators of the 00 Cyborgs escape from captivity along with 001.
Dr. Gilmore is a short man in his mid 60's who has spiky grey hair combed back, black eyes, and a large bulbous nose. He wears a brown suit with an oversized red bow tie, brown pants, and dark brown shoes.
Dr. Gilmore is a renowned scientist in several fields, most notably in the field of cybernetics. He uses his intellect to build fantastic machines as well as keep the 00 Cyborgs in good shape by doing routine maintenance and repairs of their inorganic parts to keep them alive. He has also made occasional upgrades to their systems, such as the Accelerator being enhanced to let 009 travel at near light speed.
Dr. Gilmore is a wise and kind man, but at times is a bit quick-tempered. He is the 00 Cyborgs closest ally and their mentor, acting as a sort of father figure to this surrogate superhero family. They often consult him on matters involving Black Ghost, scientific anomalies caused by their weapons, or on general knowledge to investigate bizarre events (geography, science, ways of contacting Gilmore's friends in the scientific community etc.).
