Aki Hayakawa is an individual with a quiet personality who takes his hunt more seriously than others. In contrast to other hunters, he never kills devils in pursuit of material things, but rather to save humanity from them. 

His family was murdered at the hands of his father, the Gun Devil, which is the reason he was the Devil Hunter in the first place.

Despite his dark side, it is difficult to find instances where we observe Aki enjoying himself just like the others Devil Hunters. Throughout the whole show, Aki Hayakawa only smiled five times.
