Haru is a very compassionate person, always smiling, even without reason. He has a pure heart and strong will, he is devoted to his friends, becoming very angry when one of them gets hurt.
He also seems to idolize his sister, Cattleya, to some degree as he always says that his sister taught him a great many things.
One day on Garage Island while Haru was out fishing he caught a strange creature that closely resembles a snowman, initially mistaking it for a fish. He went to find his sister who was at the grave of their deceased mother to show the "fish" he had just found. Confused in how Cattleya found the weird fish to be cute, Cattleya tells him that the creature is more a dog than anything else. They both head home followed by the dog the had just found. At their home, they see Nakajima (a sunflower-like creature that lives on the side of their house) how even he is shocked by the appearance of the strange-looking dog. The dog follows Haru into his room acting up in front of a set of drawers because it wanted some candy which made Haru take a liking towards the dog. He later takes the dog out on a walk into the town and tails him into the cafe owned by his friend Gemma. After telling him how he found the dog Gemma begins laughing and even more so when he hears that Haru named it Shabutaro. Then all of a sudden, an old man named Shiba came along, being followed by a strange man. Shiba and Haru talk and Shiba takes off his disguise to reveal he is "shriveled", as Haru liked to call it. Plue then walks in on them and Shiba says that the dog is actually Plue, while Shiba goes on to tell Haru of how he lost Plue. In the end, Haru returns Plue. Later on, a strange man destroys half of his house and two of Nakajima's feathers. Haru vowed to take revenge on Demon Card after that.
Haru appears in Hip Hop Town where he lost track of Plue. He looks in a casino and as he searches, he accidentally looks up Elie's skirt and sees her panties. Embarrassed, Haru hits his head on the gambling table which causes Elie to lose her bet. As she freaks out on him, Haru beats up some security and continues to look for Plue.
After searching, Haru finds a dog racing track where dogs are being abused alongside Plue. In response to this, he goes down to the track to end the horrible excuse for entertainment. As he travels down he runs into Elie again and he defeats all the security single-handedly. However, the owner came out and revealed that he had a Dark Bring. With this, Haru equips the Explosion Sword to defeat him and escapes with Elie and Plue.
As he ran, he fell in a hole and met Hole, a girl who helped people out of the city who the Demon Card hated. As she helps them lose the Demon Card, Haru runs into Demon Card general Shuda and the two begin to fight. Despite being on the ropes, Elie throws Plue at Shuda, and misses, but a sign comes down on Shuda which allows Haru the second he needs to destroy Shuda's Dark Bring. With this, Shuda leaves and learns that Haru is Gale Glory's son and decides to let him go for the time being. However, because of the fight, the Ten Commandments breaks and Elie tells Haru about a legendary blacksmith that can fix it on Punk Street.
As Haru travels to Punk Street with Elie and Plue, Elie shoots someone's watering can on an airplane. Enraged, the man comes down to talk to Haru. As they argue, the boss intervenes and fixes the pot and leaves with his gang.
As he arrives on Punk Street, Plue starts to drink with an old drunk who is revealed to be Galein Musica. He agrees to fix the Ten Commandments with the Rave but as Haru meets the Bandit Leader with Elie again, he reveals he is the only Musica, Hamrio Musica. As Haru and Musica try to figure out what is going on, Demon Card lackeys appear and together, the two fight them off. After the fight, Haru decides to have faith in the old man and he goes to talk to him. The old man tells him the truth and he goes to fix the Ten Commandments as Musica arrives to say that Demon Card general Lance has kidnapped Elie.
Haru arrives with the fixed Ten Commandments just in time to save Elie and he and Lance begin battle. Soon Lance reveals he has a Dark Bring with makes his Beast Sword's illusions come to life and Haru struggles until he realizes the sword's weakness. Despite knowing the weakness, Haru still has trouble and it takes Galein and Plue to hold back Lance long enough to destroy his Dark Bring. With it destroyed, Lance begs for mercy but as Haru gives it to him, Lance attacks again. However, Haru easily repels him and destroys the Beast Sword.
After the fight, Haru helps Galein and Musica realize they are in fact family and Galein tells Haru to look for a Rave in the Land of Falling Stars. Hearing this, he and Elie go north.

After hearing King and Gale's past and hearing the truth of his mother's death, Haru becomes sympathetic towards King which greatly shocks him. However as the fight continues, Haru falls on top of the recently arrived Elie (and accidentally grabbed her breast) and receives the Rave of Combat for her. However before he can use it, Haru defends he right as NOT being Elie's boyfriend like his father and King assume.

After the tower collapses, Haru is horrified to find his father died protecting him.
After burying his father in a place similar to his mother, Haru seeks comfort through Elie over his death. As he looks within his heart Haru finds that he has several paths to choose from but thanks to Let, he realizes it is actually one path.

However, Haru is further beaten by him so he passes out.
He then awakes in time to save Elie from Julius and not only save her but nearly defeat the Oracion Seis until Haja stabs him in the back with his hand. As Haru is incapacitated, Sieg Hart arrives and saves them all only to make Haru angry because he didn't save Elie. He then learns about Lucia from Sieg but Haru doesn't care about Lucia being King's son, and thus he should be Haru's mortal enemy, but rather, Haru hates him for making Elie cry, with this, he declares that he will defeat Lucia.

After Musica leaves for Punk Street, Haru begins to wonder where he had gone. Let informs him that he left on a Rune Wing, but doesn't know where to. Julia tells Haru not to worry about Musica's disappearance but Haru insists on going to look for Musica, but Shuda then tells him not to bother. Despite the advice of others Haru and his friends and arrive in Punk Street with the help of Miltz's ability to track Niebel who left with Musica with his magic. They find the Punk Street is completely frozen. Haru heads towards Galien Musica's home believing Musica to be there. Unlike the rest of the town his house was unfrozen, after entering the forge Haru finds Musica collapsed on the floor with Niebel and Galien looking over him. Galien tells how Musica had passed on creating a new sword for Haru as his current sword was made for Shiba and not Haru. After hearing an upset Haru yells that he wouldn't want the sword unless his friend could give it to him himself. After seeing Reina when passed out, Musica awakens to the Delight of everyone around him. With great power flowing through it, Musica then hands Haru his new sword Ravelt and with the new sword Haru was able to use the Tenth from of the Ten Commandments.

After telling Galian about Elie being Resha along Haru and his friends leave Punk Street. Before leaving though Haru Reaches for Shiba's Ten Commandments, but Galien swipes it away asking why he wants to take with him because Ravelt will have the same powers as the Ten Commandments once the Rave Stone is placed into it. Haru explains how after all the time he spent using the sword he doesn't want to let go of it yet. Galien yells that a sword without a master has no soul and proceeds to attack Haru with the Ten Commandments. The sword shatters after one swing when it coiled with Haru's Ravelt. Galien compliments the power of Ravelt and Haru tells him that with the sword he will accomplish Shiba's unfinished will. Back abroad the Merdian Haru is seen practicing with the sword but his friend seemed rather worried about his attachment towards Ravelt as he caresses it. Bony the Starfish tells Haru and his friends that something terrible was happening to Ruby. Outside they see a dense mist that appeared to be absorbing the memories of everybody. Shuda tells them all the mist is Stellar Memories and that it was destroying all the memories of the world. Suddenly Stellar Memories disappears due to Elie's completion of fusing the Rave Stones together.
The Rave Warriors take a stop in Stora Hesai after obtaining Ravelt and fusing the Rave Stones together. Before the upcoming battle, Haru and his companions have a feast to celebrate the latest achievements in the Kick and Punch Hotel. During the massive, Haru stared across the room to see Elie. When she noticed him and smiled at him Haru felt really embarrassed. Musica noticing his embarrassment kicks Haru in the face and advises Haru to confess his feeling to Elie as he might not get the chance after tomorrow’s final battle. Julia proceeds to get Elie drunk as Haru finds out that a plan was set up by Musica and Julia to get him to confess. After Elie passes due to the effects of the alcohol given to her by Julia, Julia grabs Elie while Musica holds Haru down. With an evil grin on her face, Julia begins to strip Elie of her clothes seeing that Haru "didn't" like Elie. As the rest of the room was cheering Julia on, Haru lies on the ground begging her to stop. As Julia begins to pull down Elie's bra, Haru tells them that he likes Elie, but Julia tells him to confess his feelings to her. Haru finally agrees to tell her his feelings only when Julia starts taking of Elie's bra, so Julia stops much to the disappointment of most of the men in the room. After taking a big drink of Alcohol, Haru goes to tell Elie about his feelings for her, much to the delight of Julia and Musica. On the way to tell Elie his feelings Haru hears a few men in the room upset at the fact of not being able to see Elie naked, so and angry Haru the strips of all his clothes to get them to shut up. The naked Haru then goes up to Elie to confess his feelings, but just when Haru was about to tell her his feelings, fire comes from Elie's mouth as a side effect of the alcohol Julia gave her.
Later on, Shuda enters the Hotel to see the state of everyone after the party and starts speaking to Pule who was still awake and still drinking. Shuda begins talking to Plue about tomorrow's battle and tells him the sacrifices and inevitable. Haru overhears their conversation, so next morning Haru awakens and looks out to the sea. Remembering all of his friends which had passed on, he then prepares for the battle against Lucia and heads out the door leaving his friends behind, so he wouldn't lose them in the final battle. He heads to the new airship to head towards Lucia, but much to his surprise Elie was already abroad the airship before he got there. She tells that she knows how he feels about not wanting anyone to lose their lives in the upcoming battle but more importantly how the sacrifices everyone gave 50 years would be pointless. They both agree to head with each other to finally end the war and Haru asks Elie to return with him back to his home. Realizing what he just said Haru becomes really embarrassed, but Elie agrees to go with him. The door to the cockpit of the airship opens to find the other Rave Warriors had witnessed their moment alone. They tell Haru that it was foolish to go alone and how the battle against Lucia wasn't his alone. With all the Rave Warriors gathered They head towards the final battle.
Abroad the airship surrounded by the mist of Stellar Memory, Haru and Elie begin talking about their families. Let noticing an increase in the speed of Stellar Memory's flow tells Haru and Elie to get inside the ship. Haru notices something above Lets head which then appeared to be the ground. The airship was headed for the core of the Stellar Memory which is causing the increased wind flow. Haru screamed for Lucia as the airship headed into the core. Suddenly, pouring out of the core, came armies of golem soldiers and Haru and the gang, ready for the fight, commenced to hack their way through them to keep the airship on its designated path. Just when the monsters seemed to never end, a gigantic blast of energy shot past the airship and completely destroyed the enemy hoard. Looking back, the gang saw armadas of airships that were recognized as their friends. The mages, the renegades, and Reina's underlings all came to help Haru. The leading mage said they received a letter from fifty years ago they realized that Seig Hart, stuck in the past, had foreseen this and sent the letter.
When Haru and the others enter the Stellar Memory, Lucia sends out the four demon lords. The first one to reach the gang is Asura of Darkness who captures Elie inside a tiny sphere. As expected, Haru jumps off the ship to give chase to Asura and get Elie back using the power of Silfarion to moves swiftly. Before Haru can catch Asura he is confronted by Uta the Eternal who wields a blade that is ridiculously huge. Right behind Haru appears Let and Musica who tell Haru to keep going after Asura, that they can handle this guy. Haru accepts and speeds on leaving Uta to the duo. Haru jets forward and catches sight of Asura. Wasting no time he smacks him out of the air but Asura only gets up and reveals his true form which is the large body of a demon whose skin is covered in Dark Bring, each with their own ability. Asura then begins to beat Haru to a pulp using various unique Dark Bring. Once again, as is Haru's usual style, right before all is lost Ravelt begins to shine and Haru comes back for a second wind with an attack that shatters all of Asura's Dark Bring in one go. Thus ending Asura completely and Haru retrieves the orb that Elie is captured in and releases her.
Just when Haru had saved Elie, Lucia shows up and distracts Haru while Megido of the Flame sprouts from the ground and knocks Haru away then blasts him with one of his flame attacks. Lucia then takes the unconscious Elie and strides away triumphantly. As Megido is about to utterly destroy Haru's body, Shuda appears to save him and challenges Megido. Shuda braves Megido's Flame to deal a mortal blow and the ground crumbles beneath him, sending him into a pit of lava. Shuda falls as well but manages to grab the ledge and hang on. As the crumbling rock drops him Haru appears to catch his arm and struggles to pull him up. Shuda says to forget about him and Haru protests. So Shuda starts to cut his arm off but after a few inspirational words from Haru he has second thoughts on letting himself die. That is until he loses his grip and begins to fall, but quick thinking allows Shuda to drive his sword into the rock to stop his fall and to climb back out. Haru struggles to continue with a battered and bruised body towards where Lucia is but collapses from exhaustion. Musica appears as he was told by Let to continue and leave Uta to him. He picks up Haru and helps him continue. Not long after, Ruby appears being chased by the bat that was hiding in his hat. Musica defeats it easily but Ruby continues to freak out thinking that he will die because he was bitten. When Ruby pulls out and complains that he can't open his elixir, Musica snatches it and pours it down Haru's throat. Ruby shuts up after he realizes the situation and forgets about his own pain.
As Lucia Begins to activate Overdrive the surrounding landscape becomes erratic and in the confusion Musica and Ruby find Haru missing. They automatically know that he had continued to fight Lucia and Save Elie and the rest of the world. Right before Lucia was about to sacrifice Elie, Haru emerges. Kicking Lucia away from her. And so the final battle between Glory and Raregroove begins. In the beginning, Lucia pulls out all the stops and changes his body to its combined form of himself and Endless. Haru and Lucia begin a brutal battle against each other until Elie tries to dispel the overdrive and it swirls together and creates Endless with Lucia and Haru trapped inside its body. During their battle, Lucia explains how he will be the ruler of the real timeline and how he will destroy this fake time. Lucia deals a blow to Haru using Dark Blue Crimson but Haru gets up (shaking though) as if it were nothing. Haru then deals Lucia a blow using Explosion and so the battle (and its banter) continue. Lucia then catches Haru off guard and pierces his stomach and as he lay there he explains how it was his ancestor Aciela Raregroove that was the last survivor in the real timeline and was the one to create this parallel timeline which was a great sin as Lucia calls it. Lucia calls this world a wrong world that shouldn't exist because of all the hatred and evil in it. Enraged Haru stands and denounces his accusations and as they clash once more. The Rave gathers all the energy from the cries of Haru's friends hoping for his victory which allows him to destroy Lucia's sword. Beaten, Lucia begins to fade away since he believes that this world does not hold his future no matter how much Haru says that it does.
Now, stuck inside Endless, Haru tries to find a way to escape but to no avail. After toiling for several moments Haru understands how things must end. He calls out Elie's name and she hears him. He tells her that he defeated Lucia and Elie tells him to come out and he reveals that there is no way out. That Elie must release Etherion and save the world at the cost of his life. Elie's cries saying that she can't live in a world without Haru. Because he promised they would all survive. Because he promised they would go to his island afterward. Haru convinces her that if the world was destroyed then so would all the happy memories they shared and that was something she just couldn't sacrifice. so she picked up her staffed and released Etherion. Destroying Endless and Haru but saving the world. In the final moments before his death, Elie told Haru she loved him and Haru said that he loved her too. After that moment, Etherion erased Endless and stopped the overdrive in a climactic explosion. Musica awoke to find Elie nearby but as he approached her he saw her look at Plue and get scared, calling him a bug. Elie gets amnesia once again.
One year later. The gang has reunited to come back to where the last battle was held. To pay homage to the greatest hero. With them, they brought Elie who had been told everything except anything that had to do with Haru. the warriors gave their offerings to the grave all thinking the same thing. "That he should be there, with them...with Elie. As if to answer their thoughts a great blast of energy rose into the sky and within it appeared the Hero, Haru Glory, resurrected by the Stellar Memory. Haru stumbled out into the group confused until he saw Elie. He approached her and told her "I'm Back." At that moment, all of Elie's memories rushed back into her mind from the dog races to the moments before she sealed overdrive. in a fit of tears, she tackled Haru saying "welcome home"
The story finally ends with Haru and Elie returning to Garage Island and not long after getting married. The replica of the sword Ravelt can be seen atop a brick wall, adorned with ribbons of flowers over the crew at their wedding. Peace had finally been brought to the planet after more than a century of turmoil.
Powers and Abilities
Haru's abilities remained standard as he grew stronger by besting in fights. After encountering Shiba, Haru's normal status must have boosted after inheriting the Rave from Shiba. Followed by obtaining the Ten Commandments, Haru's skills grew exponentially through each battle with growth and experience from mortal combat to swordsmanship
After defeating Shiba in his final trial for the Rave of truth, Haru's abilities as a full-fledged Rave Master has proved him powerful enough to defeat Berial in one strike.
- Expert Swordsmanship: He trains with his sword every day to become stronger,
- Enhanced Strength:
- Enhanced Speed:
- Immense Durability:
- Hand-to-Hand Combatant:
Ten Commandments: The main weapon of the Rave Master which was carried by Shiba Roses for 50 years before the Rave chose Haru as the new successor. Haru's special power is Rave (also known as Holy Bring), but it's connected to the huge sword he carries, known as the Decaforce Sword, Ten Commandments, which he received from Shiba after learning that he was the new Rave Master. The Ten Commandments is named such because the main piece of Rave gives the sword the power to take on 9 other forms, while the original form was made by blacksmith Galein Musica.
- Form 1 - Eisenmeteor: The original form of the Ten Commandments, it's a plain metal sword that can't be blocked from magic attacks. This was shown in the first confrontation between Haru and Sieg Hart.
- Form 2 - Explosion: A sword with no proper cutting edge but creates a powerful explosion on contact with the enemy. It is Haru's first sword gained from Rave and his most commonly used. However, the shock of the impact is powerful to the extent that if Haru uses it in succession too much, it could possibly hurt or kill him.
- Form 3 - Silfarion: This sword allows the Rave Master to become extremely light, granting great speed and the ability to create blades of air for long-ranged attacks. Silpharion can also be used with Explosion to create a special attack called "Bombing Dive" ("Twelve Wings of the Explosive Dragon") which fires explosive blades at the enemy. However, the Silpharion is relatively weak as a melee weapon and is no more than a normal sword for attacking. This form also allows Haru to catch his opponents unaware, though in Chapter 61 the sword is beaten by Racas, one of the Palace Guards.
- Form 4 - Rune Save: A unique jagged sword which cannot cut anything physical but can cut things without a tangible form like lightning, fire, water or smoke. It can also be used to seal magic, and is used by Haru to seal Elie's Etherion. Later, in a battle between Haru and Lucia, Lucia uses his Decalogue Runesave to seal Haru's Runesave, making him unable to block Lucia's magic attacks.
- Form 5 - Blue Crimson: The Ten Commandments splits into two blades with one having the properties of fire and the other having the properties of ice. The fire and ice can also be used as ranged attacks. To use the sword to its full potential, the user needs to be ambidextrous, making this sword hard to use for Haru since he is right-handed. This sword is also useful in fending off attacks from two opponents simultaneously. During his duel with the various members of Oracion Seis, Haru used Blue Crimson to fend off Berial and Reina's combined attacks. Ironically, Haru first uses these twin blades against Let, who belongs to the dragon race.
- Form 6 - Mel Force: The sword of air, this form allows the user to fire powerful bursts of air at the enemy to blow them away and paralyze them.
- Form 7 - Gravity Core: An incredibly destructive sword that is able to cut through very hard things. In its earliest use, the shock wave of the swing was enough to destroy several meters of reinforced steel. However, the tradeoff is its extremely heavy weight and thus requiring great strength to use. Although more powerful than Explosion, it's a very difficult blade to utilize. Haru usually jumps/swings up before switching to Gravity Core for maximum damage.
- Form 8 - Million Suns: Meaning "the force of a million suns." A sword whose blade is composed purely of Light, the holy light generally blinds Haru's opponents and dispels darkness. Used by Haru to defeat Pumpkin Doryu and disabled the power of his Dark Bring.
- Form 9 - Sacrifar: The most destructive of all the forms, Sacrifar is a frightening blade of bloodlust that trades the user's emotion and will for the power of Carnage. As the sword was not made for Haru (but rather Shiba), the sword will take over the user after some time. The sword gave him an enormous increase in fighting abilities, allowing him to effortlessly overpower a powerful fighter like Lucia. Since he only used the sword once, it is unknown what capabilities it would have after Musica forged a new sword for Haru.
- Current Default/Form 10 - Ravelt [In anime called : Star Raver] : The most powerful form of the Ten Commandments. When Musica discovers that a tenth form of the Ten Commandments was never made for Haru, he takes it on himself to create one, using a piece of his Silver, leftover metal from the first Ten Commandments and a mixture of blacksmith and silver manipulation skills (he almost died from exhaustion in the process). Ravelt has the power to dispel evil and becomes the default sword, while still being able to transform and use the powers of the other swords using Rave. Later, Hamrio Musica uses Shiba's Ten Commandments to test Haru's Ravelt, only for the former to shatter to pieces upon contact.
- Haru can combine his sword abilities to create a variety of effects:
- Explosion + Silfarion = "Sylpher Drive":
- The most commonly used combination technique. It creates twelve swift explosions that Haru normally uses to quickly take out a large number of foes.
- Runesave + Melforce = Rune Force:
- Creates a tunnel through fluids. For the duration of the ability, the fluid will not flow into the tunnel allowing Haru passage. Haru has used this twice. Once to avoid falling into acid before Musica could save him, the second to strand the oni in mid-air by pushing away the sea before he unleashed Explosive wings.
- Explosion + Blue Crimson = Dual Explosion:
- Basically a double Explosion. It is likely this is more focused and thus more powerful attack than Silver Drive.
- Explosion + Silfarion = "Sylpher Drive":
Rave Stones: Formerly called the Holy Bring, the Rave Stones are 5 mystical stones created by Resha Valentine through the immense power of Etherion. Rave was meant for only one person to use, the Rave Master. Only the power that created them can fuse it together, and once that happens the true purpose and power of Rave will be revealed.
One of Haru's special powers is the ability to use the Rave. Its main piece connects to 1st form "Eisenmeteor", which is the sword's default form of the Decaforce Sword, Ten Commandments, which he received from Shiba after learning that he was the new Rave Master. The Decaforce Sword (Ten Commandments) was created and formed by Galein Musica, storing each form within Rave's memory, as he forged the next. but being that Galein couldn't use Rave, he was highly irresponsible about it.
- Shiba's Rave The first Rave Stone Haru obtains from Shiba by default. It enables the user superhuman strength, speed, agility, stamina, endurance and durability. Given enough time, it's possible that it can enhance these abilities even further as after months of being the Rave Master, Haru managed to defeat 1000 or more demons in one battle (though this may be due to Haru's own rapidly growing abilities). When Haru punches while holding the main piece in his fist, it can cause explosions on impact. This piece appears to be what grants Haru's sword it's various forms and contains the memory of each form, as after he gains a new sword, it retains all of its transformations.
- The Rave of Knowledge provides Haru with warrior skills and techniques; if he is given a clue to something he can discover what it is easily. Its primary use is that it allows Haru to instantly realize the abilities of each form of his sword, granting him an effective degree of proficiency as soon as he unlocks each form (even in the middle of combat) without having to train.
- The Rave of Combat not only enhances Haru's physical attributes even further, but it also allows him and Plue to project forcefields. This Rave is said to be Plue's exclusive Rave.
- The Rave of Destiny allows Haru to speak with Sage Pendragon who is a Prophet. While having little use in direct combat, it gives him constant communication with Pendragon, allowing him to warn Haru of upcoming major events and telling him useful information to aid his quest.
- The Rave of Truth speaks the truth; it revealed that Haru, up till Chapter 238, was not the true Rave Master. This led to a dramatic duel with the previous Rave Master, Shiba. It appears to possess little to no capabilities outside of determining the identity of the true Rave Master.
Their first meeting differs between manga and anime versions. In the manga, he is hidden by Elie at a dog racing track causing him to see up her skirt. In the anime, he peeks underneath Elie's skirt at the casino while looking for Plue. The scene in the anime occurs before the racetrack. Afterwards, Haru promises Elie that he'll help her find her memories. The following are examples that demonstrate how close Haru and Elie's bonds are.
When Lance is about to kill her, Haru shows up and blocks the attack with his sword, thereby protecting her. He promises her that he would always protect her at the expense of his own life. When Sieg Hart tries to kill Elie, he asks Haru to choose between saving Elie or the world. Haru declares that he will save both by using the Runesave to seal Elie's Etherion.
During the Symphonia arc, Haru and Elie have an awkward moment on the ship when Plue causes Haru to fall on top of Elie. When Lucia kisses Elie and causes Elie to cry about her first kiss, Lucia's act infuriates Haru. After an intense battle with Oracion Seis, Haru and others fight valiantly to save Elie.
In that final battle, Elie killed him with her own two hands but not intentionally. However after doing so, she lost her memories afterward which they were okay with. They thought it would be best for her.
A year later, Haru comes back to life. And Elie gets her memories back after witnessing Haru's face again. They embrace and finally kiss afterward they get married in the final chapter.
The friendship they share is strong. The unspoken trust is always between them, there's no need to tell each other that. They always have a friendly competition as Musica is the strongest partner (to the point of being his equal), that Haru has. Musica forged Ravelt for Haru when he discovers that a tenth and final form of the Ten Commandments was never made for Haru, using a piece of his Silver and some tiring blacksmith skills, he succeeded in making the sword. Ravelt has the power to dispel evil, and becomes the default sword while allowing him to transform and use the powers of the other swords at once. A sword that Haru clearly cherishes.
Plue is pet snow dog of Haru.
- Haru can be seen on Fairy Tail chapter 102, page 13 at the top left panel.
- Fairy Tail's Erza Knightwalker's weapon Ten Commandments is very similar to Haru's weapon Ten Commandments; the main difference is that Haru's a sword and Erza's a spear.
- Haru's appearance is similar to Fairy Tail's protagonist, Natsu.
- Their naming follows Hiro Mashima's pattern for the protagonists: "Haru" meaning "Spring", "Natsu" meaning "Summer", and "Shiki" meaning "Four Seasons."
