Originally an inhabitant from the continent Pharm continent, Hayate and his younger sister Miyuki were born to Chizuru and a ninja, both in service to the same master. Chizuru, a retired samurai, taught them the samurai code, but they became ninjas like their father.
The legitimate successor to his father's clan, Hayate pledged himself in service to the master his parents and ancestors had loyally served for generations. Per his master's orders, he carried out political assassinations and infiltrations, and gathered intelligence from his foes. He also took many pupils under his wing.
Hayate, who had inherited Chizuru's grave demeanor, was jealous of his sister's talents as an expert dual-wielding swordswoman. The coldness he showed Miyuki gradually drove her towards the darkness, and ultimately, led her to leave her family's home. She fled from their master's domain, seeking the power of darkness. To take responsibility for Miyuki's desertion, and filled with grief, their mother Chizuru took her own life by committing seppuku.
Although Hayate apparently left in search of his younger sister, he never found Miyuki, and gave the rest of his years to his master. When he passed away, Hayate left behind a crystal with his memories, to be summoned by those with the power of visions. It is said Hayate's vision now wanders the world search for his sister, in hopes that he might still make amends.
