Hikaran is a Firebending detective in the Republic City Police Department with family roots in law.
Maintaining a strong, lean build and six foot three, Hikaran's figure is not as imposing while in his day to day attire and demeanor. Blue eyes and short black hair with a friendly face, he isn't quite as intimidating at first glance.
Hikaran usually wears simple attire. At work, he wears a business suit with a black tie and coat in dress shoes. Outside of the office, a simple black long sleeved shirt with jeans and running shoes.
He carries a kind spirit, caring and uplifting. He respects other people and greets them with a smile. There is little that can make him angry, save it for unwarranted cruelty and injustice. In that case, he uses his intellect and skills to outmanuever an opponent through lawful means. He is attentive to his surroundings, in the workplace and out on the town, which is just what an investigator needs.

Sun Warrior(Achieved after 1 month)
- Fire Blades
The user is able to create thin blades of fire from their melee attacks which are capable of cutting objects as well as burn them. While performing this technique, the user cannot use any other form of firebending techniques.
- Fire Bomb
The user sends forth a massive fireball which explodes into a torrent of flames upon contact. The user must take time to build up this attack and is vulnerable while doing so.
- Enhanced Fire (Passive; Exclusive; Color Choice)
The user's flames become enhanced and burn much hotter than normal. The user is able to change the color of their flames as they wish (excluding black flames) and can simultaneously use two different colors.
- Flame Missiles (Exclusive to Sun Warrior)
The user can launch a stream of fire which they can guide towards the target, allowing them to target more agile opponents. The user is immobile while using this power.
(Note: Once a power is chosen, it cannot be changed. Also, Master level powers can only be achieved after 7 months and require 2 open power slots.)
- Fire Charging (Passive)
The user is able to charge up any of their flames which causes them to burn stronger and more intensely for a short time as well as having considerable more force behind them. (Achieved after 2 months)
- Lightningbending (Passive; requires 2 open slots)
The user is able to focus their fire so effectively that it can become lightning. The lightning is far quicker and more unstable than fire and cannot be blocked or redirected by any means other than another person who can Lightningbend redirecting it. Creating lightning takes a huge toll on the user and if used more than a few times without a large break it will likely backfire on the user and injure them. (Achieved after 7 months)
Hikaran uses quick, decisive actions, usually trying to guess his opponent's next move. He also uses his katana as an extension of his firearm in bending.
Raised in the Fire Nation, Hikaran was born to parents with origins in law. Her father a judge and his mother a detective, he had an upbringing of following the law and justice. They also taught him about how the system can be twisted by corrupt individuals. Much of his education was spent in understanding the legal system and in knowing how to use it for good. Though it was when he turned six that his Firebending came around, it wasn't until his teens that he really start training in combat.
His teen years were then spent in honing his skills in Firebending and in detective work, primarily by his mother, at around thirteen. The pair of them would go about solving minor cases, gradually cementing into more mentally challenging and dangerous territory up until he became an adult and thus permitted to become an official member of the police force.
It was at this time he became appraised of the Avatar's Citizen Project. He spent a year filing the necessary paperwork to transfer to Republic City. He also spent that year to save his money to secure a nice apartment and boat ticket. As a farewell gift, his father gifted him with a family heirloom, a katana belonging to three generations of lawmen in their family. And with that, he set out for Republic City, to make a difference and bring light, as is the meaning of his name.
Having met Amaya, a young, troubled woman dealing with her sexual assault at the hands of Haruichi and Yogini Senkai he does his best to comfort and council her. But when an accident occurs that results in her being harmed at his hand, namely with his bending, he loses his inner fire for the practice and sticks to using his katana and martial arts, namely Judo and Ardis; wherein he strikes at connecting joints as a counter attack as he is being attacked.
As he investigates the Senkais, he will be shut down by the upper police staff, so he conducts his own investigation off the record, possibly joining Faceless to gain connections and informants, exercising his belief that the police cannot help everyone. His investigating Haruichi will gain some progress upon learning about the faction he has become a part of, and will inadvertently alert Haruichi to Hikaran's poking around.
After regaining her trust, Hikaran and Amaya go into a sort of unofficial dating phase, spending time with each other to help build up one another. They don't call it dating, but to others, it's obvious they have something for one another. It isn't until Haru makes an appearance that things get heated. Haru will beat him initially, but when he threatens Amaya, Hikaran's inner fire rekindles and burns hot to protect Amaya, and his blue fire is introduced, which helps ward off Haru for now.
From that point on, Amaya and Hikaran's relationship grows and they officially start dating. Meanwhile, his war against Haruchi Senkai is fought with wits, skill, and determination. But Hikaran wants it more. They will finally clash after they both achieve Lightningbending and master Firebending.
