Hayate Hyūga (日向 疾風 Hyūga Hayate) is one of the main characters of an upcoming series by Darkrai and Per. He is a Genin-level Shinobi of Konohagakure, and a member of the famed Hyūga Clan. Currently, he is the heir to the Main House.
Hayate has short, dark brown hair, as well as fair skin, and the customary white eyes of his clan, which have a tinge of lavender in most artwork. His hair is worn in a levelled "hime-cut" style, a style worn by girls, just above his forehead, with cheek-length strands framing his face. His attire consists dark gray, short sleeved hooded-jacket with a fire symbol on the upper right and left sleeves worn over a dark black, longer sleeved T-shirt and navy blue pants. Under his shirt, he wears chainmail, much like several other shinobi. Hayate wears his Konoha forehead protector around his neck.
Hayate is very much unlike the other members of his clan; rather demure and shy in contrast to the rest. He is characterized as shy, thoughtful, serene, kind, and very polite, as noted from him always addressing people with appropriate honorifics. Hayate is also incredible gentle; and dislikes competing and fighting, often to the point that he will go out of his way to protect flora and fauna if he is thrust into a battle. He is shown to be incredibly empathetic, and, because of his upbringing, is the only one of his team who attempts to empathize with his enemies.
Back in his childhood, as a result of his clan's high expectations as their heir and his parents painful training before deeming him a failure, Hayate is highly timid and lacks self-confidence. However, he constantly attempts to prove himself to his clan, believing that with a little perseverance and a lot of hard work, he can become the clan head and people will respect him. He is also noted to be rather popular with girls; most of whom find him "cuddly" and "adorable"; something which he's not too thrilled about—wishing to be seen as a strong and independent person. What is amusing to note is that the interactions between Hayate and fellow team-member Gaishiki Uzumaki is similar to that of a manzai routine; with Gaishiki being somewhat vitriolic towards him, though it is apparent that the two do care about each other. Hayate is also bisexual; which, despite his age, is something that he doesn't fret over much, accepting it as part of himself without any worries.
As a member of the Hyūga clan, Hayate possesses the Byakugan, a dōjutsu kekkei genkai which grants him near-360° vision, along with x-ray vision, and the ability to see chakra networks, amongst other things. Like many Hyūga, Hayatae's Byakugan grants him the ability to see through solid objects, and a degree of telescopic sight; in his case, he can see an area of up to 60 metres away in any direction. Hayate, to the surprise of others who see his shy nature, is surprisingly skilled with his Byakugan, as he is cabable of adjusting his vision to see in X-ray, to see the skeletal structure of his opponents. This is useful for determining injury, or targeting the bones of an opponent with his own Gentle Fist Taijutsu.
The most useful ability of his Byakugan is it's ability to see the Chakra Pathway System. Like other members of his clan, using the unique visual abilities of his Byakugan, Hayate is able to selectively see into his opponent's body, focusing his vision purely on the chakra pathway system, which is key to his combat. However, showing the true talent he has that makes him a powerful member of the Hyūga clan, is his ability to see the tenketsu, nodes along the chakra pathway system. His father hints that Hayate has enough potential to even determine the locations of the Eight Gates along the pathway system, which would make him a huge threat in combat.
Gentle Fist ArtEdit
As a member of the Hyūga clan, Hayate specialises in close-range, taijutsu combat. His fighting style is the signature style of his clan, the Gentle Fist, which takes advantage of the Byakugan's ability to see opponent's chakra pathway system. This style of Taijutsu is utilised through expelling chakra from the chakra points located in the hands, especially fingertips, and surgically injecting it into the target's chakra pathway system, holding the potential to cause damage with even the slighest tap.
Expanding his vision to see the tenketsu, however, is where Hayate's abilities as a Hyūga become a true threat to the opponent. Targeting the tenketsu, these nodes along the chakra pathway system, Hayate gains full control of his opponent's ability to mold chakra as he can forcibly close these nodes, making it so the opponent cannot only fail to call on their chakra, but it severely weakens them to the point of exhaustion.
Outside of the traditional combat in targeting the chakra pathway system, Hayate can use his X-ray vision to see into the body and target the bones of his opponents, easily shattering them by targeting the chakra pathway system around them. With the proper application of chakra, Hayate can dislocate knees and joints as well, hindering the movement of his opponents limbs. Despite the fact that this is actually very sadistic, he thinks it's a gentle way to defeat them because he isn't causing them lethal damage.
Hayate possesses a fair amount of knowledge in the process of making medicines, shown early on in the series when Akira was wounded severely by Takeshi Hondou's powerful Lightning Release techniques. He has knowledge about a few various plants at the least, able to tell which ones have medicinal properties, and is also able to properly stew medicinal plants to drain the necessary qualities they have, and concoct them into healing potions and lathers. Hayate explains that his mother made him take a few medical classes at the Academy, believing he would make an ideal supplementary ninja.
