Hyde Kido (Unknown Actor), is the main character of Under Night In-Birth and its updates.
He returns in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle as a playable character and as one of the four main protagonists.
A normal high school student living alone, he was drawn into the Hollow Night, a phenomenon which saw him nearly killed by invisible beings called Voids. He was saved thanks to the timely intervention of Linne, a nearly-century old being in the body of a young girl whom he saved from a common thug back in a daylight, and her ally, the giant Waldstein. The event caused Hyde to awaken to becoming an In-Birth, allowing him to harness the powers of EXS, the source of all things. Grateful, he has since dedicated himself to helping her cause and ending the Hollow Nights for good.
Sometimes in the past before becoming an In-Birth, Yuzuriha, who is few years older than him use to be his childhood friend, until they are separated after a “certain incident” where Hyde regretted to remember it. Thankfully, he learned a bit of Dual Moon’s One Blade Drawing Style from her clan’s training.
After becoming an In-Birth, Hyde’s luck has grown much worse. He is being followed by Linne’s fallen older brother Kuon and noticed by Amnesia’s leader Hilda the Paradox, who wants to meet him for a bet in an upcoming Hollow Night War. At one point a middle-school schoolgirl named Nanase even accused him of sexually harassing her and transforming her into an In-Birth. This is all just a misunderstanding as the dumb situations she is in was actually her own fault and Hyde was only trying to save her from the Voids attacks on her. Hyde also adopts Vatista, one of Nights Blade’s old associates to stay in his home until she can complete her mission.
