Hayate is the younger brother to Ida and is the express messenger for Ryoshima Coast. He was paralyzed by the mist created by Blight in Sei-an City but returned to his duties on the coast after the mist cleared. Hayate is so confident in his athletic abilities that he challenges Amaterasu to a race. After being beaten, his pride is so hurt that he offers his job to Amaterasu who refuses. He then resumes his duties but resolves to one day become fast enough to beat even Amaterasu.
