Appearance Hayashida Haruki
Pah-chin is of short and stocky build. He has slanted eyes and bleached hair parted to the right side with the sides of his head cleanly shaven. He bears a small stitch on the leftmost side of his lower lip and a small scar under his left eye.
He is most often seen wearing the traditional Toman uniform. As a high schooler, he lets his hair return to its original black color and dresses in formal clothing, befitting his career in real estate.
Personality Hayashida Haruki
Pah-chin first appears as a brusque and rude individual, reacting aggressively to minimal things or otherwise harmless statements. He is by his own account not very smart, something even Ryohei Hayashi agreed with.
Pah-chin is seemingly proud and boastful of this fact and sometimes even uses it as an excuse for his actions, which is something that annoyed other Toman leaders at times when more thought and tactics were useful other than sheer brute force.
Pah-chin is above all a very loyal friend who always supports and stands up for his friends and loved ones. When one of Pah-chin’s friends and his girlfriend were brutally assaulted by Moebius, Pah-chin was furious and wanted revenge.
Luckily, his defensive instincts kicked in and he managed to hold back, mainly because he was fearful of dragging Toman into a fight where they’d be facing an older and more established gang. His initial displays of aggression being merely an outlet for his frustration over the incident.
When revenge was authorized by Mikey, Pah-chin was invigorated and hoped to strike at the earliest possible opportunity. He did not take Takemichi’s suggestion to not attack, well. Fearing that Moebius’ provocation could be part of a larger scheme and even beat him down for providing ambiguous logic.
If it means to fight for his friends, there is no limit Pah-chin is unwilling to cross, facing Osanai in a duel that was obviously to his disadvantage, and later stabbing him to finally make him pay for his crimes. Subsequently he stayed behind and let himself be arrested to allow the rest of his gang-mates to escape police.
After being released from detention Pah-chin seems a new man with a different outlook at life. Although he maintains most of his personality quirks, he seems much more focused and orderly, now being capable of running a real state business with great precision and surprising know how.
Skills Hayashida Haruki
Pah was considered one of the strongest fighters in Toman, so much that Peh-yan had absolute trust in his abilities. Unfortunately, the full extent of his fighting power has not been demonstrated as he was defeated with relative ease by Osanai who had an expertise in boxing.
Nonetheless, Pah-chin proved himself durable enough to take a severe beating and still remain conscious.
Following his release from detention, Pah-chin managed a real estate business. Despite his previous assertions of being stupid, Pah-chin demonstrated precise know how of his industry and accute care of the minimum details to deliver the best product possible to his customers. In the Present time, his business would grow into a commercial success.
