Hair Color and Style: Hachirou's brown hair is kept moderately short: his forward bangs potentially hang messily past his eyebrows, and over his ears.
Distinguishing Features: His height.
Personality: Hachirou is a social creature – prone to idle talk and jokes. Despite this, he is calm, collected, and calculating as a leader and as a soldier. “A fair and steady hand.” Is a quote he has hung onto outside of Officer Candidate School. He is not quick to anger, and rarely does he bring his frustrations out on anyone, instead he takes a step back from the situation, and withholds all action until he can think of an appropriate response. A 'tell' of his anger is silence, and a working jaw as he grinds his teeth. He is very determined and focused, and greatly dislikes unfinished business. Hachirou also tends to mess around with his hair, and can come off occasionally as patronizing or overly blunt.
