Calamity Trigger

One of the "Six Heroes" who defeated the Black Beast, who disappeared after the Dark War. Now that he has appeared once again, what could his goal possibly be?[1]

Nearly 100 years after his encounter with Terumi, Hakumen was salvaged from the Boundary by Kokonoe, Jubei and Nine's daughter. The two quickly disliked one another, and Hakumen was taken outside of The Edge and into the 13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi: a location he barely recognized from his life as Jin. [2] Near the Novus Orbis Librarium branch, Hakumen detected a Nox nearby and investigated, thinking it strange that they had not all yet been sealed by this time. He found Carl Clover with Nirvana, and the child quickly deduced his identity by his appearance and the fact he was holding Ookami. Tensions escalated between the two as the hero warned Carl about the dangers of wielding a Nox; Nirvana stood between the two and she scooped up Carl to run away with him just as Hakumen drew his blade.

Rachel soon found the hero and taunted him on the familiar scenery and the mental lock that Yukianesa had kept on him. Hakumen cussed at her before walking towards the cauldron of the NOL branch, determined to sever the world's threads with his own hands. [3]

Inside the basement, Hakumen was found by Ragna. The two battled as Hakumen exclaimed his chant and Ragna was being soundly beaten throughout the fight. Ragna was unable to activate the Azure Grimoire and Hakumen nearly dealt the final blow but was stopped by Kokonoe's Phenomenon Intervention. He dispelled it and they continued the fight until the hero was distracted by Noel Vermillion, who had come down to the area. Hakumen was defeated as Ragna managed to activate his grimoire. Now unable to dispel Kokonoe's interference, he was transported to Sector Seven. [4]

Central Fiction

One of the "Six Heroes" who defeated the Black Beast. After fighting with the Black Beast during the Dark War, he disappeared. Now that he has appeared once again, what could his goal possibly be?[7]

Although drawn into the Embryo, Hakumen’s memories were not altered because of the Power of Order. Nine subjected him to multiple illusions of Trinity, Valkenhayn, Jubei, and Celica, all taunting him over his reasons to fight in the Dark War, and the aftermath of his presence on the world – he cut his way out of the illusion and went deeper into the Embryo. [8] He made his way to the NOL branch in Kagutsuchi, easily breaking through although careful to leave no casualties. [9] After fighting his way through the branch, he ended up near the cauldron, finding Ragna and fought him, ending in a stalemate as Noel accidentally opened up the nearby cauldron. He disappeared almost immediately afterwards. [10]

Hakumen was transported to Ikaruga by Nine and told to kill Izanami to inherit his piece of the Azure. He was found by Tager wandering around Ikaruga and was nearly apprehended. He told Kokonoe to find her own path and to Tager that he is not a devil, just a puppet. [11] Valkenhayn found him much later on, and Hakumen mocked him for not remembering the past. They left on separate paths after discussing the peril that Rachel is in. [12]

In due time, Hakumen realized that Jubei was trapped in space-time. He travelled to the Kaka Village, meeting Platinum the Trinity – there, he asked for their materialized Hihiirokane, to which they complied. [13] He met Tsubaki later on, going to the Yabiko branch together, delivering the Hihiirokane to Jin later on. He told Noel that she is a reflection of The Origin in the world and insisted on taking her life, only relenting when told there were more important things to take care of. [14] He journeyed with the others (namely Jin, Tsubaki, Noel, Ragna, Lambda-11, Rachel and Kagura) to the Embryo but was separated in the frozen space-time by Izanami, being put with Tsubaki. [15] They travelled to the Altar above Kagutsuchi to find Requiem, and they found data of Relius Clover and Ignis Clover – Hakumen battled them, but was unable to kill them once the data had observed what it wanted out of the silver knight. [16] They later found the Amaterasu Unit and Jubei fighting Nu, backing him up and fighting the Murakumo Unit.

Having watched Ragna defeat Nu when he came to back them, Hakumen immediately turned his sword to the Dark One, acknowledging his strength to be too much to be ignored. Hakumen lost this fight and watched as Nu was sent insane by Terumi, blocking a fatal attack that was launched at Tsubaki. Finally, having defended the woman he was unable to save in his last life, Hakumen turned his blade at the Murakumo Unit and soundly defeated her. Following the battle, the knight was assaulted by Terumi and the original Hihiirokane, his soul shattered, and the Susano'o Unit now returned to its original owner – Terumi, in reality, the God Susano'o. [17]

Sealing the Susano'o Unit away forever
Terumi was dragged out of the unit and killed by Ragna. Hakumen’s soul, although shattered, still remained in the Unit. He thanked Trinity for throwing it into the deepest, darkest depths of the Boundary where he and it would never be discovered again.
