Aki Hayakawa (早川 アキ Hayakawa Aki?) is a Public Safety Devil Hunter, working under Makima's special squad. He has a contract with the Curse Devil and Future Devil, and a former contract with the Fox Devil.
Aki Hayakawa is a man with medium-length black hair that he keeps tied up on the top of his head. He wears a suit and tie. He also wears earrings and usually carries his sword on his back.
Aki has been shown many times to be a very stoic person. He acts mature and dependable when he's with his fellow Devil hunters, but the man is very soft whenever he's alone. After confirming his good friend Himeno's death through Denji and Power, Aki starts to cry, mourning for his fallen teammate. Furthermore, Hayakawa actually cares about Denji and sees the boy as a dear friend, despite the two of them having a mutual hate towards each other.
When Hayakawa is first introduced, Makima orders Denji to work with him. While they are patrolling the city Hayakawa becomes annoyed with Denji asking whether Makima has a boyfriend and pulls him into an alley to beat him up, as a warning that if he doesn't take Devil Hunting seriously he could end up dead. Denji then fights back, kicking him in the groin multiple times and stating that he would risk his life to continue living the way Makima has shown him. Once they get back to the Devil Hunters Headquarters, Makima assigns Denji to Hayakawa's squad.
