Hayami is a slim young woman. She is five feet and eight inches tall. She wears shoes that are just below her knees and tucked in are dark red trousers. She wears a red robe and under it is a long sleeved shirt and vest with the collar raised. She also wears goggles that are rested above her head. She also has a small dagger that rests on her right thigh, hidden by her robe.
Over the years Hayami became introverted and quiet. Her only company was her fire bending teacher and maids. The pressure to become the perfect daughter broke her and made her apathetic to her surroundings. She’s also quite temperamental whenever she’s bothered by things she doesn’t care about. Despite this she is clever, candid and will do whatever it takes to get what she wants. She is undoubtedly rebellious.
She despises anything the restrains her from her goals. One of her weaknesses is her arrogance and constant sarcastic remarks. Her goals are to find out more information about her mother and to get stronger whichever way possible.
Hayami was born into a rich, noble family. Akihiko Yisheng was a kind and bright young man with a knack for technology. He became an engineer and the inventor for most of the fire nation’s finest weaponry. Akihiko would sometimes travel the world to find inspiration for new designs. And that’s when he met Azami in a local fire village. A fiery and charismatic fire bender- his complete opposite. It took all of his might to ask her out, surprisingly she agreed. And not long after they got married and moved to Capital City. Azami gave birth to a son, a non bender and named him Kazuya. Hayami was born four years after Kazuya without any complications.
And for a time, The Yisheng family was perfect. But then Azami received word that she had family residing in Republic City and wanted to leave but couldn't because they were bankrupt. She wanted to help but Akihiko said otherwise. They fought a hundred times whether she would go or not. He thought that it was ludicrous and that it was still dangerous, saying it could blow out again at any moment. She then devised a plan of sneaking out in the middle of the night. She took a boat with her and set out to Republic City. Akihiko was devastated. The only thing that Azami left was a note saying that she loved him and promises that she will be back.
But she never did come back. The child never knew that her mother went away to Republic City. In fact, she never knew Republic City at all. Akihiko hid the truth from her so that no one in his family will never see or hear from it again. Hayami grew up knowing that her mother died during child birth.
Hayami discovered that she could fire bend at the age of 8. She and Kazuya snuck off to the Fire Nation festival, they had the time of their lives, but got lost on the way home. They slept outdoors for the night because they were tired of searching. It was so cold. They needed to make fire but none of them knew how to make one. But she didn't give up much to her splintered hands. Suddenly while she was waving her hands in a fit of rage, fire appeared in her hands. Small it may be it was enough to make a fire going. She was so happy and proud of herself that she decided to show her father the next day. But Akihiko was furious than glad.
A group of guards that their father hired found them in the nearby supermarket. Her father scolded them for sneaking out, especially Kazuya being the elder sibling. He should have known better and that he was responsible for anything that might have happened to Hayami. She defended her brother and told him it was her idea and only forced him to come with her. Akihiko had enough of the rebellious child. He decided to imprison her in the house till the end of her days. In his mind, this was the best solution to protect her daughter. But in doing so, The Yisheng family was never the same again. Hayami was angry at her father and decided not to tell him about her fire newly found power.
But after almost a year, she finally told her father that she was a fire bender. Well, she didn't exactly tell him. One day when he came back to their estate, almost half of the house was on fire. He looked dumbfounded at what he saw. He immediately went to look for his children. He saw Kazuya first then went to Hayami's bedchamber. And that's when he saw Hayami, bending the fires consuming their home. "Sorry, it got a...bit out of control." Akihiko couldn't believe that Hayami inherited fire bending, but he knows that he can't do anything about it. Azami was a fire bender as well. It was bound to happen. Hayami explained how she got her bending then begged her father to hire a fire bending teacher. Reluctantly he agreed but they can only practice inside their estate. For all the remaining years that was the best thing that brought joy to her, aside from reading fantasy books and playing musical instruments. She always thought that home school was a drag. The only thing on her mind was to get back and train to become stronger.
Hayami grew up detesting authority. She would sneak out at night, making sure she broke every last rule that was made by her father for the fun of it. Because of this their relationship strained over time. Kazuya was sent somewhere far where he could train to become a soldier when he was just fourteen years old. Hayami was only ten when he left. It was a sad moment for her. Kazuya was her only friend, she would miss those times when they played on puddles when it rained, or when they had that contest to see who can eat the most fire gummies in just ten seconds. Now he's gone and she had no one to talk to. They sent letters to each other but it was still not the same.
At the age of eighteen she became curious of her mother and why her father would immediately dismiss any questions related to her. Yes, she admits that her death would have affected him greatly. And it did. But still, she was her daughter and she barely knew anything about her. She asked her brother but even he won’t talk about it. She talked to the guards that worked long enough for them to meet or to just even see her mother. Sadly no one spoke up except an old man. He told her he barely remembers anything but he’s positive that at one time he saw Azami and Akihiko arguing something about Republic City. She asked what Republic City was but did not say anything else. When she asked her teacher about it he became apprehensive. Which only sparked her curiosity even more, she pleaded her teacher to tell but he did not budge.
Without any more leads she decides to ask her father. He became furious as to why she had knowledge about Republic City, when it was prohibited to speak of in their home. They fought about it but then things heated up when Hayami asked the connection about the city and her mother. Akihiko could not stand it anymore and accidentally hit Hayami in the face. Both were stunned at what happened. Hayami ran away to her room crying.
She packed her belongings along with some money and ran away. For three years she would go to different towns, sleep on inns and ask the local people about Republic City. People would say that it has gone downhill a few years back, but the avatar has returned and has been looking for immigrants to live in Republic City. Hayami thought that it was fate. This was the perfect chance to go there to train more and finally get the answers she’s been longing for.
