|Check the details about Hyde's gameplay from here!|
Hyde (ハイド) is the male protagonist of UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH. His full name is Haido Kido (城戸灰都).
Hyde is a 2nd year student in the same high school as Harada, Seth and Carmine. He and Yuzuriha know each other from their childhood, but currently their relationship is awkward due to a "certain incident".
Hyde is a young boy with black and bleached blonde hair and red eyes. He wears a dark red t-shirt under a white button-up shirt with one button loose and a red tie, a black jacket with two belts (one of them undone), black pants and black shoes.
Straight-forward and strong-willed, Hyde is an individual who gives his all to any challenge before him and doesn't back down from a fight. Although normally cool-headed, he has a cocky and reckless side to him and tends to head into extremely dangerous situations. Hyde has stated that he has no desire for power and only wants to live his life like a normal person.
Hyde is someone who greatly values his friends and comrades. Although he is capable of using Insulator to kill Linne, he decides to postpone doing so as he feels that she has much more to teach him. He was also hesitant to fight Orie due to the positive relationship they have and offers Vatista a place to stay until she completes her mission.
Hyde was living alone after his parents left for work abroad. One night as he was coming home late he is attacked by "Shadows who devour people" he had only heard rumors of, but is saved by Linne. Hyde doesn't lose his sanity and awakens to the power of EXS. Linne is amazed that the boy had the power she had searched for so long, and decides to train him. That's also when a mysterious witch sets her eyes on the boy.
After that, Linne, her pet Kuu and a mysterious old man move to Hyde's home. They teach Hyde all about the Hollow Night and the Power of Existence so that Hyde would be ready when the next Hollow Night arrives. During the training time Hyde becomes a rumor on the streets as the Unknown Actor ( , Wild Card in localized ver.) who accompanies Princess of the Night Blade.
One month later, when the Hollow Night finally appears, Linne and Waldstein suddenly disappear so Hyde begins searching for them. On the way, he encounters Orie and both are surprised that the other is an In-Birth. They then fight for the right to move on to challenge Hilda with Hyde emerging victorious. Soon after, Waldstein suddenly appears and engages Hyde in battle to test his strength and resolve. Afterwards, Hyde encounters Linne outside the Altar and insists that he fights Hilda while Linne insists that Hyde stay back because Hilda is after the Insulator. They then fight and Hyde is able to proceed. Paradox offers Hyde a place in Amnesia to help her plans come to fruition, but he refuses. He defeats Hilda and uses Insulator to destroy the Abyss, ending the Night. Afterwards, he reunites with Linne and carries her home on his back.
Hyde's ability is the EXS of Jet-Black (Indulgence of Rending ( ) or "Insulator" from within his hand. The sword has a power to rend things apart, and can even be used to rip a person's EXS apart - meaning it can kill Immortals and those similar to them.) called Void Red ( ). This power makes it possible summon a sword called the
