Haida is an office worker and a supporting character of the Netflix Original series Aggretsuko. Haida works alongside Retsuko in the accounting office and has a long-standing crush on her.
Haida’s appearance is based on a spotted hyena, and his name is a play on the Japanese pronunciation of ‘Hyena’. Haida has grayish-brown fur, a black nose and ears, and a dark gray muzzle with freckle-like spots on his cheeks. His eyes are hazel, and he has gray hands, tail, fur tufts in his ears, and a pronounced underbite.
Haida wears a white dress shirt, red tie, black dress pants, and brown dress shoes at work. His casual wear consists of a red and black striped t-shirt, black leather jacket, jeans, and boots. In winter, he wears an olive green coat with a white fur hood.
It is hard to say what Haida’s real personality is like, as most of his time is either spent fawning over Retsuko or drunk, but these situations show that he is somewhat neurotic, often visibly anxious, and can be prone to bursts of anger. Haida tries hard to impress Retsuko with his initiative to fix her things and compliments her as best as he can, but cannot get himself to admit his feelings for her and doesn’t take her rejection very well at first. He has a lot of trust for Fenneko to keep Retsuko safe at the mixer, and though he gets extremely jealous of Resasuke, he is still content that Retsuko is happy with him. This shows that he is kind and considerate, even when not getting what he wants.
At times, Haida can get very passive and indecisive, such as when he juggles between his feelings for Retsuko and Inui, unable to choose between the two. He can be pretty much of a pushover, only following people’s words rather than listening to his own choices.
