She was apparently very 'tomboy-ish' and strong willed. Yomo described her as being talkative and strong. She would sometimes tease Yomo with bugs, showing that she had a sense of humor.[1]Hikari's kind and gentle personality only developed after she fell in love with Arata. In the past, Yomo recalled that Hikari was a wild child, killing and eating humans. Her children have also inherited her previous wild tendencies which is noted by Yomo.[2]


Hikari's parents and brother were killed leaving her the sole caretaker of her younger brother, Yomo.[1] They stayed together until she formed a relationship with Arata and they started their own family.
