Under complicated issues, Hiroaki left the house in order to get away from the clan's discord and searching for his older brother, Hideaki who suddenly disappears before he was announced to be the next head of the Yagyū clan.
During his travel, he met Law and his peerage during their travels in the Europe. Under both Law's persuasion (in this, insults and mockings) and fighting, he became a Reincarnated Devil under his peerage.
Masayūki is a young, handsome individual who has mid-length, spiky and black hair which covers the right portion of his face (specifically to cover his right crimson-red eye, indicating his demon heritage). His hair is tied into a low-ponytail and each strand of hair flicks out. The right side of his face is covered with markings that had appeared from when her mother gave birth to him.
His attire consists of black legwarmers, pale-lilac samurai pants and woven robes. Another layer of a dark purple robe is worn over and tied around his waist. The purple layer of clothing has orange as its inverted colour. He wears a chest-plate guard and presumably something of the similar sort for his arms, which is finished off by a thick, plated shoulder-guard. He has a strap attached to his torso which he hangs his prized sword on the back along with his two short swords in the left waist, and finally, a traditional sandal footwear for that of samurais; with straps and socks.
Hiroaki is a quite cheerful, playful and kind individual who carries his ways of bushido (samurai code) and principles to go by. Due to this traits, he has unyielding and honorable side, which conveys himself as man of duty and honor, as it was beat into him when he was taught by his father and masters in the clan and his kind youkai mother who told him to spread happiness with his kind and noble heart to everyone he meets before his imminent departure.
He is also seems to have both caring and joking personality, being the one who treats Sakura and Ren Kouei like a princesses, and encourages Law to be a little more nice to others, rather than being a total jackass.
