Biography of Rui Hachiouji
She is the only female in the code beakers, which makes it hard for her to act like a girl so instead, she always tries to be insanely strong because of that very reason. She is hardheaded and uses her shadow manipulation to fight evil that the government can’t do anything about publicly. She is code number 5. Rui likes to usually act like a male so nobody looks down on her, and she gets flustered easily when called pretty or anything of that nature. When flustered, she has a tendency to bang her head into things. When she uses her power and goes into her lost state she actually ends up turning into a mermaid.
Rui means “tears”; a name her parents gave her knowing she would have a hard life, one that would make her cry.
Her nickname prince comes from her last name Hachiouji, Ouji meaning “prince”.
