|Haseo in his very first form.|
|Real Name||Ryou Misaki|
|Character Class||Adept Rogue|
|Japanese Voice Actor||Takahiro Sakurai|
|English Voice Actor||Yuri Lowenthal (games), Andrew Francis (anime)|
Haseo appears as a teenager wearing all black clothing, red tattoos on his face and arms, with a white spikey haircut. As he levels up, and his appearance changes, his hair becomes more and more detailed. In his final form, named "The Terror of Death," he appears to be wearing a full black spikey suit.
Haseo seems somewhat shy, and doesn't have a lot to say. He prefers to keep to himself, and is usually seen fighting monsters alone in .hack//Roots. Whenever someone confronts him, he usually turns away. However, after the trauma of Shino entering a coma due to Tri - Edge's "PK", Haseo has a dramatic personality change and shows much more anger in what he says and in his overall demeaner, this is only enforced after he gains more power after the event in the Forest of Pain.
Haseo is a 17 year old teenager, who in real life is anti-social and not very good with people. Haseo first joins "The World R:2," and upon his entrance, he gets PKed (player killed) by two other players. At this point, it's clear that this new version of the World has a serious player killer problem. Haseo is rescued by a mysterious man named Ovan. Ovan requests that Haseo join his guild, The Twilight Brigade. Haseo is hesitant, but eventually joins in order to locate the "Key of the Twilight".
