"I am the white void. I am the cold steel. I am the just sword. With blade in hand I shall reap the sins of this world and cleanse it in the fires of destruction. I am Hakumen. The end has come!"
Artificial Human (formerly)
BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger (playable)
Hakumen (ハクメン) is the former leader of the Six Heroes who resides within the Sankishin's Susano'o Unit. He is the former wielder of the Interfectum Malus: Ookami. Before donning the mantle of 'Hakumen', he was a time-displaced Jin Kisaragi who was transported nearly 100 years in the past.
Hakumen is one of the original twelve playable characters who debuted in BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger.
Hakumen approaches every situation with almost mechanical detachment, and engages with only one purpose: total victory.
Powers & Techniques
One of the Six Heroes who defeated the Black Beast. He analyzes every situation calmly and mechanically, always taking the best possible option.
He shows no concern for anyone or thing that is not his enemy. The truth behind his identity, however, is jin, who slipped through time while falling into the cauldron with Ragna and Nu. On the verge of death, Rachel decides to save Jin by merging him with the Susano’o Unit, turning him into Hakumen.
Since Hakumen and Jin are in fact the same existence, they would not normally be able to exist in the same plane, but because of the continuum shift, they are able to coexist.
After defeating the Black Beast, he is sealed away in another dimension at the hands of a certain someone, but is later salvaged from the Boundary by Kokonoe. His prolonged time in the dimensional prison has stripped from him a majority of his strength.
While under Kokonoe’s control upon being salvaged, Rachel frees him. He then heads towards Ikaruga so that he might see his own form of justice through.
