Jin Habari (羽張迅, Habari Jin) was the previous Blue King and the late predecessor to Reisi Munakata.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Novel illustrations depict Jin as a young man with long, light colored hair. SCEPTER 4's uniform was different at the time, so he wore a much shorter jacket than during Reisi Munakata's reign.
Personality[edit | edit source]
In K SIDE:BLUE, he's mentioned to not have been 'decorative in his words', and was a straightforward, honest individual. His sense of justice was strong, and he was willing to risk his life for the sake of others.
History[edit | edit source]
Two weeks later, Habari's Weismann Levels went out of control after the Red King Genji Kagutsu's Damocles Down, which resulted in the Kagutsu Crater and death of 700,000 civilians. He asked Gōki Zenjō to slay him before his Damocles Down could occur, thus Habari was decapitated. After his death, the throne of Blue King remained unoccupied for 10 years.
In K:7 Stories Side:Blue, Habari can be seen with Zenjo & Shiotsu in the opening scene of the movie, in a Scepter 4 registered vehicle on the way to the heart of Purgatory's destruction. Later in the movie, he was seen having a final moment with Zenjo, before being slain.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- His name, Habari (羽張, Habari), is derived from Ame-no-Ohabari (天之尾羽張, Ame-no-Ohabari), which is the name of a deity and also the sword which Izanagi used to slay Kagutsuchi; ironically, Habari was not able to succeed in slaying Kagutsu himeself.
- More content of Habari was released alongside K:7 Stories, such as "K:7 Stories, 24 pieces, Piece 7:Habari Jin (Headless Chicken)", "K:7 Stories Recollection of a Dog", "Circle Vision, Epigraph".
