Ayato is highly regarded in Inazuma, while also being described as someone who is always stressed, thanks to his responsibilities, which causes Ayaka to worry. He is also described as being someone who excels with both a sword and a polearm. According to an Arataki Itto voice line, Ayato seems to be a fan of card games and beetle fighting.
