Once a normal high school boy, Hyde was attacked by the Void. However, thanks to the help of a mysterious young girl named Linne, he was able to barely escape death. Upon discovering that the attack had turned him into an In-Birth, a being that can utilize EXS, he is forced by Linne to fight alongside her against the threat of the Void.

Linne has since claimed respite in Hyde's house, much to the latter's chagrin. After fighting countless battles together as part of "special training", Hyde has become accustomed to his powers. He relies greatly on Danretsu no Menzaifu, the sword that Linne entrusted to him. During this time, he has also met the gargantuan brute Waldstein, who also happens to be Linne's comrade. But when the phenomenon known as the Under Night suddenly appears, Linne and Waldstein mysteriously disappear, leaving only a message for Hyde to stay away. But he will have none of that. Hyde vows to find Linne and Waldstein, and settle a score with the mysterious woman known as "Paradox".

At first glance, I definitely thought of Kaede from Last Blade. Whiile his outfit has some typical anime clichés, Hyde's look is pretty cool overall... he's got a good appearance for the straight-forward "Ryu" of the game. Hyde's hair also reminds me of the Yu-Gi-Oh dude... (whatever his name is). On that note, I think the default blonde part of his hair might've been better as a different color (but that's what alt. colors are for I guess).

I was actually surprised by Hyde's fighting style, in a good way. He packs some dynamic sword slashes and definitely has a cool play-style... not too complicated but not too simple either. His super moves are satisfying, too. While he's definitely "original enough", some of his moves do seem to take a bit of inspiration from veteran sword-users from past 2D fighters (not a bad thing at the end of the day).  Overall, he's an easily likeable design from the start... and that's exactly what a fighting game hero should be.
