First Appearance: Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 4

Kazahaya (風早) is one of the main characters in Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 4. He is technically the first Seiryu of Heaven (天の青龍, Ten no Seiryuu) of the series.

His memories are used to bestow a human trait into the Seiryu of Heaven dragon gem, thus influencing the Eight Guardians in later generations of the franchise. His particular trait is "Compassion" (人を思う, hito wo omou).

Role in Game[]

Background Story[]

Despite his appearance, Kazahaya is a god and not human. He is actually the White Kirin (白麒麟, Shiro Kirin), the White Dragon's second in command who reigns over Earth and the center of the heavens. As a deity, he also watches over the Four Gods and keeps them orderly. The White Kirin has served the White Dragon since the beginning of time itself in the parallel world.

The Black Dragon accused humanity to be senseless beings of destruction and sought to purge them from existence. After its defeat to the first priestess, the White Dragon pondered its twin's damning words towards humanity with caution. The White Dragon wondered how humanity would fare without its protection and speculated that time and patience could correct humanity's love for conflict. As an experiment, the White Dragon slept within the Loophole of Time and ignored humanity's plights. Hundreds of years after Chihiro led her peaceful era as Queen, the dragon god would awake and check humanity's activities by mystically reading the world's history. The White Dragon would learn that humanity continued to wage senseless wars each time. It then destroyed the "failed timeline", recreated the mortal realm, and reset the parallel world back hundreds of years. The process has been repeated countless times.

Humanity misinterprets the repeated timelines as déjà vu. The vaguely nostalgic feeling has been euthanized to form a hopeful legend in Nakatsu Kuni, in which the people believe that the kingdom's era of peace is destined to be reborn again. They still believe that they are being blessed by the White Dragon; they are unaware that their dragon god has forced them to relive the same set of centuries.

In each of these timelines, the White Kirin has been ordered to protect the White Dragon's foreordained priestess and ensures that she becomes the Queen. He first chose to remain in his original form. Soon after his arrival in the mortal realm, however, he was hunted like a wild beast by nearby soldiers. The White Kirin used his powers to escape, but he was hurt by their arrows. As he lay wounded in the fields near Nakatsu Kuni's capital, Kashihara, a four-year-old Chihiro found him and did her best to nurse him back to health. She was able to patch his wounds before she was called away back to the palace.

Learning from the experience, the White Kirin then sought to infiltrate the mortal realm as a human. He needed an inconspicuous person who could not be easily recognized or named by those in Nakatsu Kuni's palace. At the time, a deadly epidemic had struck the faraway Shikoku island. An entire village in Iyo had been wiped out. One of those among the dead was a fifteen-year-old man named Kazahaya. He was the son of the village elder and had enough prestige to be enlisted within Nakatsu Kuni's royal guard. The White Kirin used his powers to adopt Kazahaya's appearance, name, and memories. He artificially aged his appearance based on his observations of the people around him.

Kazahaya entered the royal guard soon after. He was taught swordsmanship by Iwanagahime and became acquainted with her disciples Hiiragi, Michiomi, Habarihiko, and Oshihito. Remembering his original mission, he volunteered to be Chihiro's servant and bodyguard. When they first met, he promised he would always be by her side as long as Chihiro never asked him his true identity. She accepted, and he then became one of her few supporters who encouraged her to believe in herself.

Five years before the main story, the palace fell to the invading Tokoyo no Kuni forces. Kazahaya found Chihiro and joined forces with Nagi during their escape. Using his powers, he opened a portal to the Loophole of Time and fled with them to the modern world. He altered Nagi's memories to hide his true identity and kept the seal on Chihiro's memories intact. Adapting to the modern world quickly, he then became a school teacher to support their home at modern day Kashihara. Kazahaya was aware that corrupted deities would be used by the Black Dragon to pursue them across time. To protect Chihiro's peaceful life of mediocrity, he made a pact with Nagi to fight them for her in secret.

Story Events[]

In spite of Kazahaya's protests, Hiiragi forces Chihiro to remember her past and forces them back to the parallel world. He appears before Chihiro again in his original form and blesses her with his divine protection. As he returns to the mortal realm, Kazahaya is intercepted by Asvin's troops. Despite receiving a wound on his left arm, he defends himself against Asvin until Chihiro and Nagi assist him. When the Tokoyo no Kuni army withdraws, Kazahaya helps Chihiro gradually become acquainted with her surroundings.

Throughout the main story, Kazahaya gladly provides exposition for anything that Chihiro may not understand. Whenever he senses danger, he is the one who often shields her from harm. Although he may be gentle with his companions, Kazahaya becomes bold and commanding whenever they face the Four Gods. He is the one who directly informs Chihiro how to conduct herself before the sacred beasts, trying to keep their meetings with the gods as short as possible.

When the party later seeks to receive Genbu's blessing in Kumano, Chihiro is unable to call on the beast due to a crack on one of its sacred urns. Without the urn, the sacred beast cannot hear the priestess within its resting place. After the party retrieves the particular clay they need, Kazahaya is the one who molds another. He creates a perfect replica of the urn at a nearby village in a week. If the player doesn't unlock his story route, he continues to remain as Chihiro's loyal bodyguard for the rest of the game.

Since he is an immortal being, Kazahaya has had to endure meeting and leaving Chihiro and his friends multiple times. He is forbidden from revealing his true self to them for it means rebelling against his true master, something which Kazahaya can't commit himself to doing for the majority of the game. His true ending is the story's canonical ending. Whether he lives with Chihiro or not is up for the player to decide.

During the series's social game, Akram channels his demonic energies to forcefully open a gateway to the Loophole of Time. Wishing to use the god for himself, the demon places four powerful curses on the White Kirin using the Four Gods he had sealed. Akane and company must fight the kirin to restore its sanity. Yasuaki later reports that it returns to its respective timeline once it regained consciousness, not bothering to thank the priestess and her guardians for their efforts.

Personal Routes[]

Chihiro may choose to become intimate with Kazahaya twice, and the first time roughly follows the game's default story. Hoping to protect her from the parallel world's dangers, Kazahaya asks Chihiro to hold two promises for him. He wants her to never leave from his side in battle. The other asks her to abandon everyone if Kazahaya tells her to escape. Although she questions the odd wordings of the promises, Chihiro trusts him enough to agree to them. She doesn't want to fight unless it's as a last resort, something which earns his further affections.

As Chihiro becomes closer to Kazahaya, he begins to lament the passage of time and voices his fondness for the past. He cuts himself short before Chihiro questions him. Returning to his jovial self, he instead informs her that he will always come to her side if she calls his name.

When the Raja of Tokoyo no Kuni invades the fields of Izumo, he brings the Black Dragon's sealed form with him. His powers weakens Chihiro and the Nakatsu Kuni army begins to fall to its destructive wrath. Realizing the danger of their situation, Kazahaya joins forces with Asvin to distract the deity and bide time for Chihiro's escape. Chihiro desires to help them until Hiiragi uses his spells to put her to sleep. She is worried sick for Kazahaya and Asvin's safety when she awakens later on the army's flying ship. The ship's course cannot be changed and she feels miserable by her inability to do anything. Distressed, she cuts her hair to call Kazahaya back to her. As she utters Kazahaya's name, he magically appears before her. Chihiro is too happy by his safe return to question how or when he arrived.

Much later, Chihiro and her allies retake Nakatsu Kuni's capital and invade Tokoyo no Kuni to defeat its Raja. During the conflict with the Black Dragon, Kazahaya protects Chihiro from being afflicted by a deadly curse. He urges her to victory and they vanquish the deity to restore the world's peace. Chihiro is anointed as the Queen of Nakatsu Kuni and her friends celebrate her enthronement. Kazahaya pays his respects before suddenly announcing that he has to forever leave her side due to the curse within his body. If he is too close to Chihiro, it could affect her as well and place the land's hard-earned peace into jeopardy. While he barely subdues the curse within him, Kazahaya formally requests her to end his service to the throne. Although the order pains both of them, she has to permit his request as the land's new Queen.

His true story has the same beginnings as his first route until Chihiro visits Sainokimi in Kumano. The elderly woman disapproves Chihiro's favoritism for Kazahaya and is suspicious of the young man's past. One of the maids who lived at Kazahaya's supposed homeland confirms her assumptions by reporting she saw the real Kazahaya's gravestone. Sainokimi confronts this truth to Kazahaya personally after Mudgala's defeat and forces him to admit that he is using an alias to serve Nakatsu Kuni. Chihiro has faith in Kazahaya's close ties with her, but she is distraught to learn that he has only been beside her for most of her life because of someone else's orders. Sainokimi is not as easily convinced by his pledge of loyalty to Chihiro since he refuses to indulge the identity of his master. Therefore, she orders him to prove himself by leading troops at Kawachi. Without much ado, he leaves for Kawachi.

Chihiro learns from reports that Kawachi was already a lost cause when Kazahaya left and that Sainokimi had planned for him to die in battle. She is relieved when the troops from Kawachi safely return to her and heads to their camp immediately to hear the survivors' report. Although Kazahaya ordered them to keep it a secret, two soldiers who like Chihiro blab about the horrendous experience. Kawachi's supplies ran out and many of their comrades starved to death. The surviving soldiers were able to escape thanks to Kazahaya somehow finding a breech in the enemy lines. He faced impossible odds as he guarded their retreat, yet he mysteriously returned to their base unharmed. The princess remembers that he did a similar feat in Izumo and finds herself wondering Kazahaya's real identity. When she finds him floating above a spring to cleanse himself, she tearfully asks him for the truth. Kazahaya then reveals his true form to her and is saddened that she finally broke her very first promise to him. Feeling the White Dragon's awakening, he leaves her to attend to his master.

Unlike the previous timelines it destroyed, the White Dragon has grown tired of believing in humanity as they have never learned to coexist peacefully with one another. It therefore deems it fit to eradicate them completely. Kazahaya speaks against his master's will and pleads for the White Dragon to reconsider. Instead of listening to his arguments, the White Dragon deems Kazahaya to have become corrupted with the time he spent with humans. Before his master can put him to sleep, Kazahaya rebels and returns to Chihiro at Nakatsu Kuni. He arrives too late to save Tokoyo no Kuni from its fate, but Nakatsu Kuni's destruction is slow enough to warn Chihiro and his friends. Everyone within the vicinity is ordered to board their flying ship immediately.

With the parallel world and its inhabitants completely gone, Kazahaya uses his powers to protect the flying ship. The people inside the overcrowded ship are safe, but they only have enough supplies to last two days. As they plan their next move, Kazahaya speaks with Suzaku –the god of the ship– to see if they can create a large portal through time. Chihiro stops his mediations and presents her wild gambit to instead confront the White Dragon directly. Thinking that her simple solution might be for the best, Kazahaya guides the main party to his master.

After a grueling battle to prove humanity's worth, the White Dragon agrees to her wish to restore the parallel world and to refrain from erasing further timelines. It pronounces that the time of the gods has ended, and humanity can live their lives with their blessings. Since he is a god, Kazahaya informs Chihiro and her friends that they will no longer remember him in the new world. He says his fondest farewells to them before he ascends to the heavens. No one remembers Kazahaya as they rejoice in the land's serenity.

Prior to the new world's creation, Kazahaya accepts his punishment for betraying the White Dragon. His heart is too sympathetic towards humans, so he is stricken of his godhood and given the chance to be reincarnated into a new form. Due to his memories with Chihiro, Kazahaya chooses to live the rest of his mortal life as a human. He visits her peaceful kingdom as a nameless traveler and personally praises her before leaving. To his surprise, however, Chihiro is the only one who still remembers him. As she embraces him, Kazahaya finally confesses his love and devotion for her.

In his epilogue scenario, Kazahaya asks Chihiro to take a break from her duties as Queen. As she sleeps, she dreams that everyone dear to her has returned to their home in the modern world.

Kazahaya is the only character to have two Aizouban extra events based on his two ending paths, and both are written from his character perspective.

His first event begins as a flashback to the modern world. It is a highschool concour for the freshmen of Chihiro's highschool. Kazahaya is comforting a nervous Chihiro backstage by asking her to practice breathing before she sings in the choir. Although he is proud of class ten for arranging and preparing their own performance, he gets skittish thinking about how hard Chihiro has tried preparing for it. He calms himself before reassuring his faith in her. Nagi interrupts by stating they're exaggerating and tells the teacher to return to his seat. Kazahaya then realizes he sticks out being next to the student body and has been getting odd looks from the other teachers. Chihiro whispers his name for a last boost of confidence before he leaves. He gently heartens he will be listening before leaving backstage.

Since the students of class seven are still performing, Kazahaya respectfully waits for their finale before returning to his seat. At this time, he senses a powerful corrupted deity emerging. He looks to his watch and believes he may defeat it in time for Chihiro's performance. Kazahaya had over-estimated the threat as it split into four copies of itself. It takes him an hour for him to beat it by himself. It is sundown and the concour is over by now, but Kazahaya runs as fast as he can back to the performance hall. He isn't surprised to see it empty and forlornly resigns to at least clean up after today's festivities. As he nears the stage, Chihiro and Nagi come towards him. Kazahaya apologizes for leaving since he was called away for an urgent matter. They forgive him (Nagi because he knew the real reason and Chihiro because she thinks it's job related) and waited there so they could perform the song for him again. Nagi comments that he was going to leave if Kazahaya took five more minutes, but Chihiro hushes him and begins the introduction for their song as one which treasures the student's loved ones. Kazahaya cheers for them in his thoughts and is moved by their singing.

Back in the present in Nakatsu Kuni, Kazahaya claps to his memory alone. He opens his eyes and treasures the time the trio spent in the modern world. He knows he can never see them again, but he thanks them. He can endure his eternal solitude as long as he has this memory.

His second event takes place during the final and canonical timeloop. It begins with Kazahaya's wish during his final moments as the White Kirin: he hopes his loved one will somehow remember him. In autumn within the new world, Kazahaya has resumed his previous occupation as the Second Lady's servant and has already made arrangements to escort her for local sight-seeing. She is surprised that he came the exact moment she called for him. He escorts her to the local village for their grape harvest, and they happily shower the princess with celebratory gifts. Once the villagers leave her be, Chihiro is embarrassed to have accepted so many gifts. Kazahaya fondly remarks that she should treasure her people's thoughts for her and compliments that the dark blue gem she now has in her hands suits her. Satisfied by her dazzled reaction, Kazahaya offers to take her another way back to Kashihara.

They arrive at a field of golden reeds, the same place he came to her when she was crying. Chihiro is amazed Kazahaya knew that she wanted to go there though he admits that it was a hunch based on her mannerisms. While she becomes nostalgic for the area due to her childhood memory, Kazahaya finds its unchanging scenery bitter-sweet. Chihiro accidentally drops the gem in the reeds and searches for it herself. He curses to himself for not doing it himself yet asks her to be careful of the reeds around her. When he doesn't hear them shuffling and loses sight of her, he begins to panic. He shuffles towards where he last saw her and laments his mortal powerlessness.

Chihiro playfully pops out from the reeds to embrace him. She wanted to surprise him with her small prank, but Kazahaya is distressed and begs her to never disappear from him. He can no longer use his godly powers to hear her voice from great distances nor can he automatically sense her spiritual presence, uneasy when she is not around, afraid at the thought of losing her. Chihiro replies with her similar sentiments for him and confesses her joy to have been reunited with him. The princess wants to accept every flaw he may have to ease the stress of possibly losing him again. She calls his name and states her love for him. As his anxieties melt away in her embrace, Kazahaya thanks the gods for making his wish a reality.

Character Information[]


When it was decided that he would be the White Kirin, Ruby Party members struggled to create his name. They thought the word "quick" (早) would be fitting for the sacred beast and wanted to incorporate it somehow with his name. Since Chihiro was made to clash with Nagi, the developers shifted their focus to have the White Kirin be the opposite of Nagi's character. They conceived that a calm character would be a fitting counterpart and followed that train of thought to a natural sound (風が立つ, kaze ga tatsu). Their ideas were combined to create his character's final name, Kazahaya (風早).

Since the kirin is known as a deity of righteousness and mercy, developers were initially lost on what weapon he should use. Shields were considered for his design process, until the idea of using one of its horns like a sword popped up. His story was created with the intent to explain why there is no kirin associated with the Four Gods in the earlier titles (or later generations of the franchise canon).


The White Kirin was a lone wolf who took pride in his high rank within the heavens. He was mercilessly discriminate and seldom treated his divine brethren as equals, which are traits expected for a deity of his stature. His only concern was ruling his station within the heavens and using his godly speed to attend to his master's biding. Eons ago, the White Kirin agreed with the Black Dragon's assessments regarding humanity. He never understood the meaning of their creation and found nothing redeeming about them, thinking it would be a simple affair to erase them from the mortal realm. Therefore, the White Kirin was bitterly confused by the White Dragon's sympathy for them and thought his new orders to be neurotic. His disgust for humans strengthened during his first descent into the parallel world.

The real Kazahaya's personality started as a mold for him and something he thought would only serve his purposes. As he spends time with humans, however, the deity learns that people are capable of expressing kindness and friendship. Experiencing acceptance on a level he has never known before, the real Kazahaya's past became more than a disguise to him and one which earns his empathy. Accepting himself as Kazahaya, he treasures his comrades and gently embraces the ethical traits of humanity. Kazahaya composes himself as a polite and friendly older brother figure over time, trying to mediate peace when his comrades bicker and sharing whatever he can give. Occasionally, he may tease them for their faults but his cheerfulness deters most arguments against him. He is sometimes criticized as being too calm and peaceful, even though Kazahaya will draw his blade if conflict is unavoidable. His immortality prevents him from being too close to them, as he regrets knowing he will someday outlive those dear to him and be forced to repeat the cycle once more. He tries his hardest to hide his grief when beside his friends, wishing to avoid the future by living in the present. Whenever possible, Kazahaya wants to believe in their charitable gifts and enrich their happy days together.

Normally, Kazahaya is able to maintain his human form without rousing suspicion. Even when he sporadically uses his divine powers in combat, people accept the false incantations he speaks as genuine magic. If he needs to rely on his real form, Kazahaya always has an excuse for his human form to disappear out of sight before shape-shifting. The only time Kazahaya has trouble maintaining his human composure is when he drinks liquor. His personality as a deity shines through after a small sip, so he often leaves before he needs to drink more. Certain animals or deities may instinctively give his cover away, although he is often fortunate enough to keep their meetings brief.

Chihiro is the first person who made Kazahaya rethink his first impressions regarding humanity. Her caring hand as she nursed his wounds helps dissolve his perceptions of humanity's cruelty. Although he continues to have his master's orders take precedence throughout the game, Kazahaya gradually becomes fond of her as he supports her. Whether it be when he brushed her hair during her childhood or when he offered to be her crying shoulder, he always has faith in Chihiro. Kazahaya jokingly prides himself for knowing everything about her and is pleased to have her acceptance when he respectfully offers to comfort her. As she matures, her boldness and selfless nature surprises him yet earns his deeper affections. When he eventually gains the courage to rebel against his divine duty, Kazahaya genuinely wants to protect Chihiro and her happiness. He realizes his desire is fueled by his love for her and not due to his loyalty to the White Dragon. Losing his godhood has little effect on his convictions; Kazahaya believes the price he paid is all for her sake. If he is given the choice, however, Kazahaya wishes to be beside Chihiro for the rest of his living days.

Character Symbolism[]

Kazahaya is symbolized by a traditional Japanese color called ama-iro. It is literally translated as "the color of heaven", but it is synonymous with the sky or stormy weather. The latter is specifically referring to windy weather, which can be another pun of his name. His outfit and hair primarily use shades of the color.

His symbolic item is an East Asian flower known as poison bulb, which is commonly known as hamayuu in Japan. Its bark was used since ancient times to create a cottony cloth. Its name is derived from the white cloth created by the flower used in Shinto ceremonies. It is known as a cultural flower of purity in Japan, which remains unspoiled throughout its summer life. The flower language has it symbolize someone who goes far away. Alternatively, it may also mean that the recipient has the giver's absolute trust.

Fighting Style[]

At the start of the game, he is the strongest member in the ally party. He will likely one shot most monsters and can take hits better than Nagi or Chihiro.

His physical attacks allow him to hold his own against Earth and Water enemies, and the sleeping property might help disable foes late in the game. Even if he isn't the strongest character, Kazahaya's high defense and healing abilities makes him a reliable member to have for boss fights.

Kazahaya can boost his vitality, defense, magic power, speed, and will power to Level 5 within the menu screen. Here are his optimized stats:
