He is still very concern and it looks like he is still thinking about something. When George Cummings called him on the phone he too showed his sense for humor. Keith seems to go straight to the thing, but before that he thinks about it properly. He too very strongly dislikes to be pulled to make things what he doesn't want to do. Mainly when it's deleting his own creation's memory.

When he returns for Edi in sequel he now seems softer. Lost of his self created AI had quite strong effect on him. It was revealed that he is alone. Without any family near. Because he never made his own family he doesn't have anyone really close to him. He says he never got married and doesn't have any children, so Edi is the only one what he got.
