The Saegusa are in the public eye as well. He had two sons with his first wife, and three daughters with his second wife. It's implied the older brothers are not close of their younger half sisters.
In the beginning Kouichi and Maya had a very close relationship, and it was greatly implied that they loved each other very much. However Maya was kidnapped and he failed to protect her from being taken. And ever since 'The Nightmare of 2062', they have had a strained relationship.
