A Nox Ncytore named Kusanagi
|“||I am the white void. I am the cold steel. I am the just sword. With blade in hand shall I reap this world of its evils, and cleanse them in the fires of destruction! I am Hakumen! The end has come!||”|
Hakumen is a mysterious character who has quickly shown himself to be entirely motivated by a pursuit of justice.
Concentrated on accomplishing justice, Hakumen is a very driven and focused individual. Yet, he is also incredibly stubborn and frequently unreasonable. The only sort of "hobby" he seems to enjoy is meditating. Any other traits are unknown at this point. He is fused to something called the Susano'o Array, which is a living armor that makes him absurdly strong and durable. However, the weight of the armor slows him somewhat.
In his first appearance, Hakumen has been summoned to the Bebop II alongside Jubei and Valkenhayn by Zev Raregroove. Their intended purpose was to help combat Uterio di Armechio. Hakumen immediately lashed out at Nadle, but was restrained by a device of Kokonoe's. He then went to meditate in an unknown room with Ed nearby.
Hakumen carries a Nox Nyctore called the Kusanagi, which is specifically designed to harm magical beings. When it cuts one, it begins to tear apart the magic holding their body together.
- Ed seems to have taken a liking to him, calling him a "nice guy."
