Hayato Haruki was one of the male students that attended Akademi High School.


Hayato wore the default male school uniform, unless customized by the player.

He had emerald green hair that is partially pulled back, with four strands of hair hanging over his forehead, and emerald green eyes. He used to wear a white headband when he was in the Martial Arts Club, although it did not show up on his Student Profile. As of the January 1st, 2016 Build, he no longer wore the headband and was no longer a part of the Martial Arts Club.


Among the personas included in the game, Hayato was a Social Butterfly. He would've happily posed for a picture if the player aimed their camera at him. If he saw a corpse or witnessed a murder, he will run to the nearest secluded area and call the police. He could not participate in physical fights against murderers.
