- "I'm The King!"
- — Hotaru
Soul Calibur IV
Hotaru is pale and has faded, light-green hair and icy blue eyes. His outfit usually consist of reds, golds, and black and he likes to wear boots. He wears a bright red shirt with gold symbolism on the chest. His pants are black and baggy and he wears a hood to match
Soul Calibur V
In Soulcalibur V, his skin is even paler than it was before, making him appear dead. A black steak is on the right side of his face and the whites of his eys are now black due to the completion of his malfestation. His hair is longer and thicker and he wears it in a messy, upwards hairstyle; that or in a ponytail. He still continues to wear black, red and gold, but he has abandoned his obessions with hoods and is seen to be a lot less conservative.
Originally, Hotaru was just an arrogant and rude teenager who was sure he could win every fight. He often teased his opponents during fights in order to irritate them and put them off their game. But as the years passed the 'shard' of Soul Edge made itself more present and it corrupted half of his mind. Now his temper is quick to flare. He gets into fits of cruel, cold-hearted anger.
In Soul Calibur V he's still a narcissistic jerk. He is also a lot crueler than he was before and now has full control over his mind and thoughts, and has put a lid on his anger. Inferno, however, still corrupts his thoughts.

Secondary Theme東方14 [Metal / Vocalアレンジ] // Farce Silhouette ┆ Pizuya's Cell
He is the Son of Seres Saharah
Cousin of Yuner
Allies himself with Sakura's Twin sister, Hana. He is the one who tells her about all the magic.
Used to be friends with Sakura, until Inferno took over his mind.
He does not actually care for Inferno nor does he care for Soul Edge. It is just Inferno's desires influencing some of his thoughts
He has always been interested in Hakudoshi . You could almost go as far to say that he even likes Haku.
- Hotaru means "firefly" or "lightning bug" in Japanese.
- Hotaru was probably the most conservatively dressed characters by LightningSakura until recent costumes
