Hakuto is a young, fit man with black hair that he ties into a ponytail with a blue ribbon. He wears a brown headband, and he sports a blue beaded necklace and a blue neckerchief. He also wears a brown vest that exposes his chest and white pants with a blue sash around his waist. He uses a brown sash and a large ring to support the large brown scabbard that carries his sword. Additionally, he wears blue wristbands and white shoes with blue ankle sweatbands.
Hakuto is a noble young man, as he selflessly protected Tomoshibi Island and Ace's flame by himself. He has a strong sense of honor and respect for his friends and their loved ones, which he shows by bowing at a 90-degree angle. Furthermore, he is also quite brave, as he was unafraid of the attacks from the BIG Pirates and stood his ground in defending the island.
Portgas D. Ace
Hakuto's bond with Ace is quite strong, as the late pirate was his commander. After helping Hakuto save Tomoboshi Island from invading pirates, Ace claimed the island as territory of the Whitebeard Pirates to show his admiration for his friend. Ace and Hakuto sailed together, and Hakuto cared deeply about Ace's wellbeing. He voiced his concerns after Thatch was murdered and wanted to accompany Ace to find Marshall D. Teach, but Ace left without him.

Sailing with the Whitebeard Pirates
Hakuto was defending Tomoboshi Island from invading pirates when he met Ace, who offered to help. They defeated the invaders together, and Hakuto decided that he wanted to sail under Ace. He was conflicted about leaving his island, so Ace declared it part of the Whitebeard Pirates' territory without asking Whitebeard. Whitebeard later agreed to the claim, allowing Hakuto to join free of worry for his homeland.
Hakuto went on adventures and held parties with his crew. When Thatch was murdered by Teach, Hakuto asked to accompany Ace, but the division commander refused and pursued Teach on his own.
Summit War of Marineford
During the Payback War, Hakuto used Spectral Slash to save Vista from one of Gracie's attacks. He fought under Marco's command with his crew against the Blackbeard Pirates and the BIG Pirates, but they were overwhelmed when Teach used his Devil Fruit abilities. After their defeat, the crew separated, and Hakuto went back to Tomoshibi Island to protect it.

After being discovered by an enemy that was seeking out the remnants of the Whitebeard Pirates, Hakuto yelled out that it was time for him to use the skill that had been taught to him by Ace to fight. This mention of Ace then caught the attention of Luffy who had been walking nearby. Hakuto then attacked the enemy pirates with his Spectral Slash, knocking the two enemy pirates off from the steel tower they were on. Luffy then called out to Hakuto, which attracted the enemy pirates' attention. They quickly recognized that he was Straw Hat Luffy and decided to retreat.
Hakuto also realized who Luffy was as well. He then went up to him and apologized while sitting down on the ground, which confused the pirate captain. In response, Hakuto clarified that he was a member of the Whitebeard Pirates and had belonged to the second division under Ace. Hearing this, Luffy exclaimed in surprise at him being part of the Whitebeard Pirates. Hakuto then continued to explain that he had been at the Summit War of Marineford, but was unable to do anything. Subsequently, he also apologized for the pain and wounds that Luffy had to sustain, but Luffy simply replied by telling Hakuto that it wasn't his fault. The other Straw Hats then arrived and the group partied alongside Hakuto and the other islanders.
During the party, Hakuto talked to Luffy about his past with Ace and the Payback War. However, the party was interrupted by the BIG Pirates, who were determined to blow out Ace's flame. Hakuto rushed them, but Noir attacked Hakuto's blind spot. Franky protected Hakuto from Neiro's abilities using his Nipple Light. The BIG Pirates retreated, and while the Straw Hats were preoccupied with dancing to counteract Neiro's abilities, Hakuto ran off to guard Ace's flame by himself. Eventually, the BIG Pirates found where Hakuto and the flame were hiding. Hakuto drew his sword, but he collapsed after Gracie shot him. Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates came to his aid, fighting the BIG Pirates and Germa 66.
While injured, Hakuto continued to say how he would protect Ace's flame and the island until the day the Whitebeard Pirates returned. He tried to protect the flame by covering it with his hands, but after Gracie activated his Great Four-Way Firing, the flame was put out. Hakuto charged at Gracie with his Spectral Slash while the latter was fighting with Luffy, and at that moment, Luffy exclaimed that Ace's flame would never be extinguished and the flame suddenly lit back up as if Ace's spirit was still alive. Hakuto's sword began glowing blue, and Luffy used it and Ace's flames light his hands on fire, defeating Gracie with Gomu Gomu no Red Hawk.
With their enemy defeated, Hakuto bowed to Luffy at a 90-degree angle and thanked him for his help. They all threw a party together in celebration.
