— Hyuga to Kitcho
Hyuga Hayato (日向隼人) is a character in Way of the Samurai.

Role in Way of the SamuraiEdit
In Way of the Samurai, Hyuga is often confused (when mentioned) with a company of the same name.
Hyuga is a shinobi who initially works with the Akadama Clan, later however, it is revealed that he is a government spy sent to manipulate Kitcho Kurou, persuading him to take control of Rokkotsu Pass quickly, so when the Akadama Clan and Kurou family clash, both will be weakened, so then the Meiji forces can take over without having to deal with much resistance. Hyuga is responsible for the animosity between the Kurou and Akadama, making it much easier for the Meiji Government to dominate the events in the Pass.
